All About Poppy

Beautiful Poppy came to LAA as sadly she wasn't getting on with the dog in the house. She is a sweet girl who loves attention once she knows you and is comfortable in her environment. Poppy can be be unsure of new situations and people to begin with, and may let you know this with a little hiss now and then and any new owner should understand this and accept Poppy for who she is. Once in the right home with the right person who has had experience of, and an understanding of, cat behaviour, she soon comes out of her shell and shows her loving side. Poppy would love a quiet home where she is the only pet and there are no children.


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!
