Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have changed the way we operate, 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 if you have any questions.

About Mac

Mac came into our care through his previous owner. Unfortunately he is struggling to settle to life in the cattery and at the minute spends a lot of his time hiding away. He is still quite unsure of us so will sometimes greet us with a gentle hiss. Mac is fearful, and though we feel this is environmental, we are looking for a potential adopter that is willing to give him the time to trust and let him find his feet at his own pace. He will accept dreamies and other nice treats while you are there but has not got the courage yet to enjoy some fuss. Due to his timid nature, we are looking for a quiet home for him where his personality can blossom. He will need to be rehomed as the only animal and can live with older children. Mac will eventually need outdoor access. 

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!
