Because Everyone Needs A Little Help Sometimes

New Cat Advice

Forewarned is forearmed!

There are many more options available for purchasing cats than a few decades ago.

Knowing what questions to ask and what questions you may be asked can help you to get off to a flying start in welcoming your new companion into your home.


I can help you to:

  • Choose a cat that will suit your lifestyle
  • Find a licensed breeder* or a reliable rescue
  • Prepare for a new arrival
  • Introduce another animal into a home that already has animals
  • Find a feline qualified trainer if you are not within my catchment area
  • Find a safe, reliable house sitter or a licensed boarding establishment*.

All advice packages are customised to your specific needs and, once you have your new kitten, I can provide training to help your kitten adjust to using  later tray,  cat flap or just settling into a new home.

Please note that this is general, pre-purchase advice only. Please discuss options for training or a behavioural consultation to solve problems with an existing cat or dog.

* Since October 2018, anyone breeding and selling a cat and offering boarding of any sort away from your home is required to be inspected and licensed by their local authority. The government is currently working on a Bill that will make microchipping compulsory for cats.
