Re: Newly adopted cat query/going away for a few days soon

It really bothers me that I have to leave her and go away as I am already very fond of her, but I have to go and look after my dad as he is on his own. I couldn't foresee this happening :(

Re: Newly adopted cat query/going away for a few days soon

Thanks for all your replies and advice. My neighbours can only pop in a couple of times in a day to feed her because of their work/family commitments...I don't think they would clean her litter tray too. I think that since I will keep her in longer, as you advised, it might be better to put her in a...

I have recently adopted a cat from a shelter and in about 10 days (after staying in for 4 weeks) I am going to let her out, but a couple of weeks after that I have to go go away for a few days to look after my elderly sick f...

Adopted cat advice please

Hello there, I have just adopted a cat from a rescue shelter and although she was adopted for me, to keep me company during the day(as my husband works long hours) she seems to have become more attached to my husband i.e. sleeping by him on the couch, head bunting him more etc, having said that thou...

Adopeted cat

Does anyone know how long I should keep my newly adopted cat from the rescue shelter indoors for? I've heard 3 and 6 weeks and not sure what's right?

Thanks :)

Re: Adopted cat behaviour issue

Would it matter if she did seem more attached to your husband in some ways? Like running to greet him when he comes home and so on? Sitting with him? He'll be a novelty but she will have been yours during the day and be very bonded with you. I don't really think the problem would arise since you're...

Re: Adopted cat behaviour issue

It's hard to say what they will be like in a home, my Lucy only ever wanted to sit on people's knee in rescue and rarely played but when I got her home, she rarely sat with me and just wanted to play! She has moments of being a lap cat but on her terms and she doesn't seen to appreciate when I'm of...

Re: Adopted cat behaviour issue

After my feline soulmate died I wasn't ready to open my heart to a new friend for some years, but our housemate came home with a cat for us that some people had given him because she didn't like their dog. Whatever the truth, I could not turn away this cat in need and already in my house - but I ma...

Re: Adopted cat behaviour issue

I've never known an affectionate cat shun companionship when alone with one of a pair of owners, even if she favours one over the other when both are there. But it's likely that when she's spent periods alone with you she'll see you as her no 1 human. Do you make more effort to attract her attentio...
