Sal finds himself at WARS through no fault of his own.
He is super friendly and loves people who arent over handling him when he doesn’t want to be.
He loves his head and ears to be rubbed, and does enjoy the company of people, however he is also quite happy in his own company watching the world go by.
He is defiantly a lap cat when it suits him.
Sal is a lovely affectionate cat who loves nothing more than to rub up against your legs and beg for your attention. What seems to be putting people off is that he has been known to go for the occasional wildlife. However this can be helped with a bell on his collar and ease this instinct, lots of play replicating hunting behaviour would help him perform his natural behaviour instead of restricting it.
He would love a semi-rural home if possible, so he has the freedom to explore, however, this is not vital.
He would be best as an only pet in the home, however, he could live with children 12+
It is important to give your cat time and space to settle in to their new home. Do not flood your new cat with too many experiences too soon. It is very tempting to show off your new addition to family and friends, but try to resist as much as you can. It is better to take things quietly and slowly – let them learn and get used to their new home environment first, building up trust levels and confidence. Make sure you provide safe places for them to hide, along with litter trays and scratch posts. Most importantly, your new addition will need to know where their litter tray, food and water are.
Have toys available to play with so once settled they can exhibit natural behaviours. Play time, along with grooming can help develop the bond between you and your new addition. Ensure you keep your cats indoors for a number of weeks before letting them out, allowing them time to settle and understand this is their new home.
We do advise that you do keep your cats up to date with flea and worm treatments, along with their yearly booster. Don’t forget to update the chip if you move.
