About Daffodil

  • Kitten-like behaviour
  • Attention seeker
  • Friendly
  • Can live with adults and teenagers
  • Only animal in the home
  • Will eventually need indoor and outdoor access

Daffodil came into our care due to the owner having too many cats. Sweet Daffodil came into us pregnant and eventually had her kittens. She has been a fantastic mum and will soon be able to be separated from her kittens so she can begin the life she so deserves. Daffodil is still very much a kitten herself, so she can be quite vocal and demanding. She loves attention, and if it's not given it to her she will find her own way of grabbing it. Daffodil enjoys being picked up and cuddled and is generally just a lovely cat. She is extremely playful, so she would benefit from a home whom can help her keep physically and mentally stimulated with lots of play. She can sometimes get a little over-excited and give a little nip, but we do feel a lot of this is down to frustration and will ease in the home once she has lots of attention. Daffodil would be ideal for a family with respectful teenagers. She would need to be the only animal in the home and 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.
