About Paddy

  • Attention-seeker
  • Friendly
  • Ideal to live with children
  • Indoor and outdoor access required
  • No other animals

Paddy came into our care unexpectedly when he was found stuck up a tree on our site! Unfortunately nobody has come forward to claim Paddy so may have been a stray or abandoned at the centre. Luckily, he hasn't let this get him down and he is a very happy, friendly boy. He loves nothing more than a human companion and would enjoy cuddles all day if he could! When he isn't having fuss, he can be found snoozing or making 'dough' with his paws on his blankets. He likes to follow his humans around everywhere they go. Paddy is only young, so we do believe once he is settled he will become quite playful in his behaviour. Due to his placid nature, he could live with respectful children aged 5 years and over. Unfortunately he wouldn't be able to live with other animals 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.
