( due to the accidental yet irresponsible incidents over the years, my bathroom door is closed, period. Kittens nearly drowned and cats/open toilet lids from visitors, broken tail tips from careless walking, broken legs while attempting to accomodate those unsteady on their feet....the list is long.
Our apologies for protecting our own. )
Visits are by appointment for :
- kitten pick up.
- pre-arranged nutrition prep instruction.
- and more frequently to meet a retired adult who is available for companionship.
Please send me your veterinary reference along with your address of residence, prior to visit.
There are just a few simple things to remember when you are invited into any home that is a multi-cat environment. We strive to keep a happy balance within our home. Balanced multicat environments do not just happen, they are created by much love, time, patience, effort, and respect.
Cats in a multi-environment are much different than a single cat. The more cats in the environmment , the higher the propensity for stress. Intact cats are driven by an entirely different set of principles than neuters and spays.
***Feline husbandry is a science***
Visiting no more than one cattery per day is recommended. This lessens disease transfer.
Be prepared to remove shoes and cleanse hands prior to touching cats.
All children should be supervised by parents at all times
Please, we do not "hand play" with our cats. Our cats, are handled gently and respectfully. Our touch is intended to reassure trust and give comfort. Your touch should be the same. Please use toys/teasers provided.
All children should have been taught prior to visiting, simple cat etiquette.
Offer the cat the backside of your hand for his approval. Head, neck, and ears scratched please.;-)
Offer a shy cat your side rather than frontal position
All personalities are different
No running or chasing within the house.
Ask permission before picking up any cat.
Never startle a sleeping cat
Your actions today could set precedence for the rest of the cat's life. Cats long remember threatening encounters. Be respectful!
sound simple?....... perhaps as though one shouldn't have to be asked or told? You would be surprised!
