About Harry

Handsome Harry came into our care as his owners were not able to give him the time he needed. Harry is full of character and is a lad that knows what he wants! He can take a little bit of time to adjust to you, but once he begins to trust he is a very loving boy. Head scratches are his fav! He is full of energy and loves to play, often becoming quite greedy and refusing to give up any of his toys, holding onto them for dear life with his paws! Harry is going to need a home whereby the new adopters understand that he can be independent at times, enjoying doing his own thing and be willing to give him the physical stimulation he needs. He will need indoor and outdoor access eventually. Harry can live with teenagers but must be the only animal.

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!
