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.

Tabby DSH female, 12 years old. Tilly is a beautiful girl who is full of love. She is eager to make friends and is always ready for a fuss. Tilly likes her home comforts and enjoys sleeping in her bed tucked up cosily. She will be a lovely companion and would best suit a quieter home as an only cat, where she can relax and enjoy life. Could you be the special person our gentle soul is waiting for? Please ask a member of staff for details.

She is looking for a loving new family to take her into their hearts. She will be a gorgeous companion, happy to lounge around with you on lazy days, and enjoying entertaining you with her games. She would like a home as the only cat of the household, so she can relax and lap up all the attention.I WOULD LOVE TO COME HOME WITH YOU.
Tabby domestic short haired female, 10 years old approx.Molly is a dear little lady who is very affectionate once she feel reassured. She enjoys human company and having a fuss in her pod. She has come a long way since her arrival at the cattery after being a stray for some years. A kind lady had taken her in but was unable to look after her any more. She is now looking for a fresh start with an older family who can give her her another chance at finding love and companionship. She would like to be an only pet so she can lap up all the attention.
