Mature Moggies Day

16 June 2021

When looking for a new cat to join their family, many people opt for cute kittens and younger cats, passing the more mature moggies by.

What is Tiddles trying to tell you? With Lyn Gardner - Swansea Cats Protection Winter 2020 - Home & Garden With so many people having a cat (or two, or three or more!) in their lives, it is sometimes surprising how little some of us may know of cat behaviour and how best to respond, so I thought a quick guide might be useful.
