About Diesal

Diesal came into our care through his previous owner. Diesal is a young, loving boy with heaps of energy. He loves to play and will be found chasing his favourite ball around and carrying it in his mouth. His acrobatics with his feather wand are on-point too! Due to his energy levels, he is going to need a home where the owner is around to help keep him mentally and physically stimulated, because if not he will find his own means of keeping busy. Diesal does take a bit of time to trust and can be a little anxious, so it is important that he has an understanding adopter who is willing to help build his confidence and let him take life at his own pace. Diesal can live with teenagers and adults. He would like to be the only animal in the home and will eventually need indoor and 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!
