Stig came into us as a stray and despite being chipped we could not trace any owner, he may have been left behind. He is a shy chap who needs some time to get to know and trust new people. Dreamies certainly seem to help and he will accept some fuss and tickles once he knows you.
Having a beautiful long mane, he will need grooming from time to time to keep him looking super handsome, so some time will ne needed to get him used to this kind of interaction, but again, Dreamies certainly will help with this
Stig can be a little shy, so would like a calm home with no other pets. He will want access to the outdoors once he has settled into his new home, so a home away from any busy roads would be best.
He will need his new home to be kind and patient with him. Having been left behind previously he will want to build up a bond and trust with his new family. He could live with children 16+
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.
