Important changes

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have changed the way we operate for the remainder of 2020 so you won't be able to look round the Cattery to view our cats as you would do under normal circumstances. If you are interested in adopting one of our cats please fill in an "Interested Parties Form" or give the Centre a call.

About Buttons

This cheeky little puss is Buttons. Buttons came to us as a stray after she appeared from nowhere and was not claimed by anyone. She is a very friendly girl who still has a bit of a kitten streak and loves to play. Anything that moves, she will catch it! Buttons will often help herself onto your lap and knead away with contentment. Buttons is going to need a home where they are willing to continue to help burn her energy and give her the attention she craves. Buttons can live with respectful children aged 12 years and over but can not live with other animals.

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!
