Hi there, my name is Bracken and I am a timid and gentle boy. Not much is known about my background as I was rescued from unsuitable conditions along with other cats. I was very thin and have had an upset stomach ever since I arrived. The lovely staff and the vet here have done all tests imaginable and there is nothing wrong with me and I have gained a lot of weight. I am currently spending time in a foster home as my tummy issues may well be related to stress. I am slowly getting a bit braver day by day. I am looking for an experienced and calm home where I will be allowed to settle in my own time. I really am a sweet and loving boy I just need time. No children or dogs please but could possibly live with a calm older cat if our personalities match. I will need a garden to call my own away from busy roads and noise please. Could you give me my forever home? Love, Bracken xx
As the owner you are responsible for providing everything your cat needs to keep them healthy and happy:
· Companionship - Cats can be quite independent, however many also like to be petted and stroked daily. Some cats are happy around other cats as long as they have their own place to eat and sleep.
· Physical exercise - Access to outside is very important for cats. Introduce outside time slowly once your cat is familiar with your home.
· Mental Stimulation - Activity that keeps their mind busy / toys / scratching posts / training. Cats also love to hunt, so don't be surprised if they bring you 'presents'.
· A healthy diet - Normally two meals a day of the food type and quantity appropriate. Access to clean, fresh water.
· Veterinary care - When needed. Annual health check.
· Comfortable environment - Not too cold, hot, draughty or damp. Your cat will find her favourite places to sleep! Provide a litter tray where appropriate.
· Respect of their needs - Especially ensure children know how to behave around cats to help them build a lasting friendship.
Each cat has specific needs, depending on its age, breed and type. For more info on caring for your cat please order our free pet care guide here: Pet Care Guide
