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.

Tabby DSH, male, 10 years old.King Louie is an affectionate chap, he can come across a little shy at first but once he's comfortable in his surroundings he quickly gains confidence. He loves to sit next to you having an abundance of strokes and would happily stay there for hours on end and chat to you all day! He is a sensitive soul so would need a quiet home with no other pets or children and a neighbourhood with few cats. He has been used to exploring outside in his previous home, and it would be nice for him to have a good size garden to head out into eventually. Louie is with a foster carer.Provisional Reserve
Tortie & White DLH female, 8 years old.Maple is a beautiful troubled soul in need of understanding and kindness. She needs a patient and calm owner, who can help develop her confidence at her own pace. Maple is very wary of feet in particular and panics if she feels cornered, which is why she needs a quiet household with no children or other pets. She needs access to a litter tray in an area that is very quiet and easily accessible where she won’t be interrupted. If you are an experienced cat owner who is able to give a great deal of time into helping Maple, please contact us. Maple is currently with a Foster Carer.Provisional Reserve
Ginger Tabby & White DSH, male, 3 years old.Oscar is a cheeky young lad with lots of energy. He needs someone who can offer him plenty of opportunities to play as he loves his feather fishing rod toy. He also enjoys his puzzle feeder which gets his brain working too. Oscar is looking for an adult only household with plenty of outdoor space for him to explore. He will be a great companion in the right home, with no other pets.
