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.

Ginger DSH, male, 14 years old approx.Ivan is a dear gentleman who enjoys human company. He was a stray before he came to us and looks like he's had to fend for himself for some time. He would like nothing more than a cosy home to call his own, and a safe spot to snuggle down. Although he can be shy of head strokes, he does really enjoy a fuss with a calm slow approach, and has quite a purr when his engine gets going, with his feet padding away with happiness. He would like a home with an older family. Ivan is currently in a foster home. Please ask for details.  
Black and white, male, 5 1/2 years old.Felix is a lovely boy who loves to lay outside in the sun and to have a roll about. He is a very affectionate cat who loves a stroke and a fuss. He also likes time to himself to relax and mull over his day. Felix is very handsome with his striking markings. He finds himself looking for a new home to call his own after his owner's circumstances changed. He is looking for a loving family home where he can enjoy life, lounging around and having a fuss and attention when he wants.
Black & White DLH Male, 6 years old approx.Oliver is a sensitive soul with a gentle nature. He is gaining in confidence and has become an affectionate lad, rubbing round you when you crouch to stroke him. Although he was very shy when he first arrived, he has found his feet with us and is improving all the time. He will be a very rewarding cat to have around.  He would like a home with an older family.
