Dot is about 8 years old and was surrendered to CPL with her mother Belle when their elderly owner went into care. We are rehoming mother and daughter separately as they are not getting along.
Dot is confident and friendly with people but will be best as the only pet in her new home. Her striking looks suggest some oriental ancestry.
Dot’s ears have been trimmed due to sun damage – this looks a bit raw at the moment but will be less conspicuous once fully healed. She loves sunbathing so her ears will need protecting with sunscreen.
Belle is about 9 years old and was surrendered to CPL with her daughter DOT when their elderly owner went into care. We are rehoming mother and daughter separately as they are not getting along.
Belle is a very shy cat who is spending most of her time in hiding here at the cattery. However, once she ventures forth she is sweet and smoochy.
Belle will suit a quiet home and an owner patient enough to coax her out of her hidey box. She may suit an indoor-only lifestyle, otherwise she will need an extended period indoors before being allowed outside to make sure she is well settled.
Toluk is about 11 years old and came into CPL care when her owner moved to a new apartment where pets are not allowed. This is her second time with CPL, she was adopted from us in 2012 (and was called Precious then).
Toluk is friendly and confident with a little bit of “tortitude” and will suit a quiet adult home. Her unusual name comes from a type of currency made from turtle shell.
Adopting an older cat can be very rewarding and they make great companions. As they are less active they tend to spend more time indoors and are less likely to get lost or injured. They are particularly suitable for owners who are themselves less active and/or spend most of their time at home.
