I live in a flat – can I still adopt a cat?

YES! Although a cat’s natural instinct is to go outside, some cats can be better suited to an indoor environment: Deaf cats, blind cats, nervous, shy or elderly cats (‘senior kittizens’), or cats who have previously been used to living indoors. Some organisations prefer to rehome their FIV positive cats to indoor homes. The indoor life can be enriched by providing toys, a scratching post, and a flowerpot growing common garden grass, as a cat’s digestion is aided by eating a small amount of grass. Check out our blog ‘Keeping your Cat Entertained Indoors’.
