Bubbles finds herself at WARS through no fault of her own. Whilst she is in her senior years she certainly doesn’t look or act like it. She loves being around people and will act like a bit of a diva, having a moan until she gets the affection she wants. But it is always on her terms, see, diva! She is certainly a cat who knows her own mind. She has settled in to the cattery quickly and you will see from the photos she is happy to come and say hi, get some hed tickles and pose for the camera.
Bubbles will want a nice quite retirement home with no other pets or children. She loves to relax in a garden, so having access to a little, sunny patch would be great for her. She is not used to busy roads, so a home in a nice quiet area away from traffic would be best.
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.
