About Tate

Handsome man Tate sadly came into LAA as his owner was no longer able to care for him. Tate is a very loving soul who wants nothing more than to curl up on your lap and receive endless amounts of fuss and affection. Although Tate is quite timid initially, especially within the cattery environment, once he knows you are not there to hurt him, he soon becomes your best friend. Patience is key with Tate, and he would benefit from a fairly quiet home, without too many visitors coming and going. Tate would also prefer to be the only pet in the home and ideally any children should be in their teenage years as Tate is quite sensitive to loud noises and fast movements.

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!
