About Dusty

Dusty is a stunning 13 year old female who came into our care as her owner sadly passed away. She's a very sweet golden oldie with lots of love to give! Dusty would be an ideal companion for someone who has lots of time and enjoys spending their time indoors but is missing that furry friend to accompany them on the sofa. Dusty loves her fusses and will do anything for a good head scratch! She has a beautiful coat and will need a little TLC to ensure she keeps it in tip-top condition. She would need to be the only animal in the home but could live with teenagers +. Dusty will eventually need indoor and outdoor access though we feel she would not potter further than the garden as she likes the home comforts.

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!
