Cinnamon has come to us from another rescue after being found as a stray and no owner was traced. She is a chatty girl, who clearly has a story to tell. She can be a little shy, for about 2 minutes and then you will become her best buddy. She likes to climb up for fuss and also likes to dribble on you whilst getting head tickles. She really love fuss and ear and head tickles, we think to her this is just the bets feeling in the world.
As we do not know her background, we feel she would be best as an only pet. She can be shy at first, so we think young children would not be suitable, however, children over the age of 8 who are calm and comfortable with cats would be ideal for her. She will like a family who will listen to her stories and supply her with lots of head tickles when she wants them. She will want access to the outside once she is settled so a home away from busy roads and train tracks would be suitable for her.
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.
