Keep Cats in at Night

With the dark evenings approaching, Bluebell Ridge recommends that you keep your cats in at night.  

The main reasons for this are:

Road traffic injuries/fatalities
Most road traffic accidents in which cats are hurt or killed happen at night, due to cats being dazzled by oncoming car headlights. It is not just busy roads that can cause cats to be injured or killed, but also quiet country roads that only have a few cars passing through which can catch a cat off guard. 

Risk of harm from other animals and humans
Cats can be injured through contact with other animals, such as other cats and wild animals. There have also been reportings of cats being killed by humans.

If you do decide to keep your cat in at night, please ensure that your cat's needs are met:

If you have an active cat, they will require plenty of things to do - from toys and climbing frames to puzzle feeders.  

Ensure they have access to a litter tray and water (not near to each other) when kept indoors overnight.

Cats are natural hunters and any time spent not doing this needs to be filled up with both exercise and mental stimulation - the best way to use up your cat's energy is to play with them. 

If your cat is used to being outdoors at night and you want to start keeping them in, you may find they become restless, but your cat will soon get used to the new routine.

Mini - Black and white DSH female, 2 years old.Nala - Tabby DSH female, 5 months oldMini and Nala are a gorgeous mother and daughter pair, who are very bonded, often found cosied up together in their bed, blissful in each other's company. They are therefore looking for a home together. They are affectionate and sociable, and enjoy human company as well as each other's. They are lively and playful and are entertaining companions and a joy to have around. Nala has unusual markings and is often admired by people coming into the cattery, and her mum Mini is very smart too, with her striking contrasting black and white markings. Nala had a fall in her previous home, but doesn't let her experience hold her back. Ideally, they need someone who can be home for a good proportion of the day, with a secure garden to keep Nala safe. They would like an older family with no other pets.We would love to see them off to their new home, as they have been with us a little while now, and really deserve to find their loving forever home.

She will need time to settle in a new home and show how beautiful she can be.
Tortie DSH female, 10 years old.Pepsi is a gentle girl who really enjoys your company. She is not fond of other cats so suited to an only cat household. She however loves attention from people.
