About Titch

  • Can live with adults and teenagers
  • Needs confidence building
  • No other animals
  • Will eventually need indoor and outdoor access
  • Understanding and patient home required

Poor Titch has had to deal with a difficult change after he came to us due to his owner no longer being able to care for him through no fault of their own. Titch is still trying to adjust to life in the cattery and at the minute spends a lot of his time hiding away. He is quite a nervous boy, but we do think a lot of this is due to the environment. Titch will need understanding owners who are willing to help him build his confidence at his own pace and be open to the idea that his true personality will emerge once settled in a home. Titch needs a quiet home with no other animals. He could live with adults and teenagers but no young children due to his nerves. He would 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.
