About Rome

Cute little Rome sadly came to LAA as a stray, with no information about the whereabouts of his mum. He is a gorgeous little kitten, both inside and out. He absolutely loves human attention, and is at his most relaxed when he is snuggled up in your arms. Rome is a very confident, energetic little kitten and would therefore need lots of stimulation in the home to keep him occupied and prevent him from getting bored.

Rome can get a little OTT when it comes to play, but this can be easily managed by getting into a play routine with him, and by giving him plenty to do when he hasn't got any humans around to occupy his time. Rome could happily live with children over the age of 10 years. We are still assessing whether Rome would take to a canine friend, but we are fairly sure he wouldn't mind another feline friend of a similar age/temperament. 

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!
