About Casper

Casper came into our care due to a change in living situation. He has always been kept as a house cat, but we do feel, as do the previous owners, that he would benefit from having outdoor access. Due to this, we will be looking for him to be rehomed in a quiet area where he can explore the outside safely. Despite his age, he is full of energy and likes to perform 'zoomies' in and out of his cat flap. He is extremely playful and loves his toys so a potential adopter will have to keep him mentally and physically stimulated. He also has a gentle side and enjoys his cheeks being rubbed. Casper is going to need to be rehomed as the only animal. He can live with respectful children aged 10 years and over.

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!
