Patricia is a gentle soul who came to us from a home environment. She is actually a sibling of Howard and Regan however, she is quite independent and indifferent towards them. If anyone is looking to rehome all three that could certainly be possible. We decided to rehome Patricia on her own as she has that independent characteristic.
Patricia loves toys and a warm lap to sleep on however, this will only happen once she has adjusted to the new home environment and get comfortable. She is a friendly girl who has gained in confidence since she arrived at the shelter and is now always happy yo say hello to anyone who goes in to her pen to say hi
Patricia will have never met dogs and therefore are looking to rehome her in a household with a dog. Patricia could live with some other cats. However, if rehomed to a house with children they must be over the age of 10 years old.
Patricia is very young and must have owners who are prepared to take on a cat which could live for 20 years or so. Additionally an owner is needed who is prepared to provide play and attention who a cat who desperately craves it.
Patricia could live in either an indoor only or indoor and outdoor lifestyle
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.
