About Kipper

Handsome young man Kipper came to Leicester animal Aid as sadly his owner was no longer in a position to care for him. Kipper is such a lovely young soul, always there for a chat when you need one and certainly there for plenty of fuss and attention. When he first came to LAA he was unsure and a little scared however with lots of his favourite food treats, and plenty of love and patience he soon came round and since then his confidence has no bounds! His new owner will need to except that he may do the same in his new home initially, but with a little time and patience, Kipper will soon realise that he is safe and loved.

Kipper will need plenty of mental stimulation in his new home, especially before he starts going out and about, so a home with someone around for most of the day would be ideal. Kipper would make a great family pet, but can sometimes be a little OTT during play, so we feel it best that any children in the home are over the age of 12 and have had experience with cats. We are still assessing whether Kipper could enjoy living with another cat, so do ask the cattery team for any updates. 

Cat Care

Until a cat is settled into a new home it is essential that they are not let outside and as a general guide this would be about four weeks. However, this is dependent on the individual cat.
Whilst a cat is confined to indoors you can introduce new toys for them to play with and chase. Cat nip toys can be especially rewarding. A scratch post will hopefully discourage them from choosing your sofa to sharpen their claws! Regular grooming by you will help to cement the bond between cat and new owner and although cats are known to generally be more independent than a dog, they thrive on companionship and interactive play. Even adult cats can be persuaded to practice their stalking and pouncing skills on an old shoelace, or play hide and seek in a cardboard box!
