About Bandit

Bandit came into our care due to a relationship breakdown. Poor Bandit is struggling to adjust to life in the cattery and still hasn't built up the confidence yet to come out of his bed when we are around. He will accept head fusses but will not really respond at the minute. We know from previous history and photos that once settled into a home he will enjoy being around people and believe his current behaviour is environmental. A potential adopter must be willing to give him the time and space he needs to come out in his own time, and to allow him to begin to trust in his own time. We are looking for a quieter home for Bandit, preferably with teenagers and/or adults. He will need to be rehomed as the only animal in the home. He has been previously kept as a house cat, so it would be ideal for someone to be around for a good part of the day for company.

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!
