About Ringo and Paul

This gorgeous pair were sadly found abandoned and bought into our care after a lady found them dumped on her doorstep. They were in awful condition when they first arrived, but with some TLC this cheeky duo are fit as a fiddle and ready to find their forever homes. Though still small for their age, we believe they are around 16 weeks old. After having a hard start in life, the boys can be quite reserved and shy when meeting new people. Once they get to know you, they will follow you around purring away and demanding fusses. They can be vocal, especially when they want attention! The boys are really playful so a vast variety of fun interactive toys in their new home is a must. As bonded brothers, Ringo and Paul must be rehomed together. Due to their slight nervous nature, they would best suit living with children aged 8+. The boys could possibly live with a well-matched female cat and will require both indoor and outdoor access once they are old enough to adventure outdoors.

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.
