Lola finds herself at WARS through no fault of her own. This older lady knows what she wants and when she wants it. She is happy dozing the day away or watching the world go by from the comfort of her own bed, but she does also like to be in the company of people, especially at bedtime. She will happily curl up next to you on the sofa, to keep you comfy whilst she dreams of comfy beds and Dreamies and keeps you company.
Lola would be best suited to an adult only home, with someone who is maybe working from home or around for a good part of the day. She would need to be an only pet in the home. Whilst she had access to the outdoors in her previous home, she is a bit of a homebody, so will quite happily become an indoor cat as long as she has all the home comforts a girl like her deserves.
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.
