About Jade

Beautiful Jade came to Leicester Animal Aid due to her owner no longer being able to care for her. She originally came in with another cat but unfortunately Jade wasn't happy sharing her space so they have been separated and are both a lot happier. Jade is such a gentle lady who loves to cuddle up on the comfiest spot she can find. She loves fuss and attention, though can be a little shy to begin with while she settles to her new environment. Jade can be spooked by quick, sudden movements, so would need a calm, quiet home where she feels safe and secure. Jade will need to be the only pet in the household and can live with children aged 12+


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!
