Fram & Sax News and Cat Care November 2018
01 November 2018
Winter is approaching; time to cuddle up in front of the fire with a cosy cat on your knee. Well, not all cats like a cuddle, but most are happy to snooze on a comfy rug or sofa. What great companions and a comfort they are. The hectic kitten season has kept our fosterers extremely busy for months and we have lots of mature cats in care who need new homes too. So, if you are looking for a furry friend to keep you company, please consider adopting rather than shopping on a dubious internet listing. You can adopt from CP with the confidence that your new companion has been health checked, treated for worms and fleas, vaccinated microchipped and neutered.

Cat care: Please spare a thought for your feline friend during noisy firework celebrations. The noise and flashing lights from fireworks can be distressing for pets. Follow these simple tips to keep your pet safe and sound: keep cats in after dark and provide them with a litter tray; make sure they feel secure in a settled familiar territory; ensure all doors and windows are securely closed and curtain are drawn; play soothing music; consider using a pheromone diffuser or spray (available from pet shops and vets).
Cat Facts: We are often asked why there is a variety of colours, temperaments and coat length in a litter of kittens. The answer is there can be more than one father for one litter. Female cats come into heat every few weeks during the breeding season, usually from February to August, but they can become pregnant all year round. Pregnancy lasts around nine weeks and heat cycles usually stop during this time. It is possible, however, for females to come back into heat whilst pregnant and, if another mating occurs, this can lead to further foetuses being conceived, with kittens from different fathers born to the same litter.
Looking for a home: These delightful young ladies are Fleur and Fern. Now just over a year old they would like a home together in a quiet rural location without any other pets. Could you offer them their new start in life? See more about them on our adoption pages.
