About Piper

Piper is a beautiful 3 year old female domestic short hair who came in to our care as her owner could no longer care for her. Piper can initially be a shy girl, but once she realises there is no threat, will willingly head bunt her way out of her bed to greet you. She is a very friendly, affectionate girl and is quite happy snuggled up in her bed when she is not padding away with contentment. Piper can be a chatty girl, and loves to talk back to you with very quiet mews. She would ideally need to be the only animal in the household. Due to her shy nature we feel she would be comfortable living with adults and teenagers who are willing to give her the time she needs to settle. 

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!
