I am just about to take possessin of a ginger tom kitty (or will he take possesion of me!). I do work part time but am home more than I than I am at work.
Any tips on how to entertain kitty when not there, what to leave him, fancy scratching pole??
Apparently he sleeps a lot at moment but has a mad half hour now and again! So am hopingto have that mad half an hour at breakfast time. Is it worth getting a friend to pop in got as a cuddle with him when I am working a longer day, or would that just confuse him!
My personal experience is that they adjust their schedule to yours - as long as, overall, they're getting good attention and play - and as long as you're not regularly away from home too too long. I'd see how it goes on that basis - and I don't think I'd get a friend to pop in unless you find that he's extra particular about his tray, or his food will need refreshing.
Well done on the ginger tom. I love them. How old will he be?
Thanks Cozie you have been such a help. He will be 8 weeks and 2 days when he comes to like chez us. We are so very excited and have started buying for him. The pet shop said to keep him in for a while and we got a little harness and lead so we can take him out but not let him out. Am now terrrified he will wander. Now need to find a good fabulours but cheap scratching post!
