Keep Cats in at Night

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.

Black and white DLH male, 8 years old.Mufasa is a gentle placid cat who loves attention. He is a cat who loves home comforts and can be found snuggled in his bed. He now deserves a forever home where he is loved. Mufasa will need regular grooming to keep his coat in good condition.
Black DSH female, 8 years old. Bella is a poppet through and through. She is so gentle and kind natured. Although she's been a bit shy in her new surroundings, she soon comes out to have a fuss when you spend a little time talking softly to her. She is very affectionate and people oriented, going all soppy when she's given attention. Bella is looking forward to being part of a new family in a loving and nurturing home. She's a lovely little person to have as a companion, and could possibly settle well with primary age children and older.
Black DSH female, 7 1/2 years old.Sasha is a beauty with a sensitive nature. Although she finds new situations a bit daunting, she soon settles down to become a loving and affectionate little lady. She is looking for a fresh start with a nurturing owner or older family. In return, she will be a faithful friend and a joy to have in your home.
