About Bug 

Bug came into our care through his previous owner. He is your typical crazy kitten who loves to play and finds joy in the little things in life! He is a confident boy and is very loving, he will come to you straight away and adores having lots of attention. You will often hear him before you see him as he chats away to us happily! Due to being very active and playful, Bug will need a home where he is going to be kept busy with physical and mental stimulation. It would also be beneficial that his new family have kitten experience as he currently thinks hands are fun toys and requires ongoing redirection training. Bug would be suited to live with respectful children, aged 8+, who are confident around cats or have lived with them before. He must be the only animal in the home and will eventually require 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.
