About Barry

Sweet boy Barry came to Leicester animal Aid as sadly his owner was moving away and it was in his best interests to rehome him. Barry is such a gentle soul who is quite shy to begin with but once he knows you and trust you he loves to be in your company have lots of fuss and attention. He needs to live in a quiet location and must be the only pet in the household. Children will need to be older teen age.

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!
