About Louie and Lara 

Brother and sister Louie and Lara came into our care through their previous owner. This adorable pair are joint at the hip and are looking for their new forever home together. They are both shy initially but with some gentle words of encouragement (and a few dreamies!) they come to say hello. Here at the centre, Louie appears to be the more confident of the two and is typically the first to come for fuss. They are the best of friends and if one is having a head scratch along comes the other! Once they begin to trust you, they are both really affectionate and have lots of love to give. They are going to require patient owners to allow them to blossom. Louie and Lara must be rehomed together due to having such a strong bond. They are looking for a home with preferably adults and teenagers, but could live with respectful children aged 8+ who have lived with cats previously. They must be the only pets in their new home and will eventually require both 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.
