About Prim & Oakley

  • Can live with a placid dog
  • Need to be rehomed together
  • Can live with older children
  • Need some confidence building
  • Playful & energetic

Prim & Oakley came into our care separately as strays. We felt like both would benefit from some companionship and tried them together, they are now inseparable! Prim is a female, semi-long hair; she can be quite nervous of new people and will growl until she gets to know you. She is going to need confidence building in the home so will need understanding and respectful owners. She does enjoy fuss and will purr away given the time she needs. Oakley, male, shorthair, is a lot more confident but can still be quite shy. He is very vocal and does enjoy his fusses too. He can get a bit over-excited and nippy so older children would be best suited to the pair. They are both little balls of energy that love to play with toys and chase one another around. The pair could live a placid dog after a careful introduction. They will both eventually need indoor and outdoor access and need to be rehomed together.

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.
