About Maurice

Maurice came into our care through no fault of his own. Some cats struggle with the cattery environment and unfortunately Maurice is one of them. He has shown himself to be a very unsure boy but we do feel this is environmental. He is going to need a quiet, understanding home where the owner is going to be willing to let him build his confidence at his own pace. Luckily he is very food orientated so this helps! We know from his previous history that he was quite playful and enjoyed attention. We do feel this is going to be accurate once he is rehomed but we need to ensure that we find someone for Maurice who will accept him for how he is now as we do not want to set false expectations for him. He is going to need a home with adults only or teenagers. Maurice can't live with other animals. He 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.
