Edward who has been patiently waiting since July last year to find a home is a big handsome boy who loves to seek out a lap to sit on. He has a cheeky personality and has the most guilty looking ‘innocent face’ that there is. He is quite the nimble fingered kitty too who uses his paws to scoop up food if its hidden in a puzzle feeder so he may have been a cat burglar in another life. He’ll definitely be trying to steal any food on offer that’s for sure as Edward just can’t get enough grub. You’ll need to watch his weight as he has been partial to an extra dinner while at Mayhew and would benefit from a diet. Above all Edward is a very charming character who has us all wrapped around his paws, He gives you the biggest head bumps to show his affection, but beware those gnashers as he has been known to nip from time to time. We just think this cheekiness only adds to his charm but it still smarts. Oh Edward what are we to do…..
Edward is ok being left for a full working day but will need a cat flap fitted regardless of your working hours. He loves a lap to sit on and will enjoy the great outdoors so if he can decide where to go and when it will make him much happier. We feel he would be best suited to live in an all adult home as he can nip a bit and would need to be the only cat in the household. During his stay at Mayhew Edward has had his upper canines removed as well as having some treatment for an upset stomach which are all now back to normal. He has been with us for several months and is hoping to find a loving home where he can be taken care of and given lots of fuss and attention. When it comes to your cats health we strongly recommend pet insurance and give all new adopters four weeks free from the point you take your cat home. It should be noted that insurance may not cover any of a cats medical issues (be that before or during their stay at Mayhew) on a permanent or temporary basis when you take out a new policy. Before any cat leaves Mayhew it will always be microchipped, neutered, treated for fleas and worms (these treatments are on-going) and their vaccination courses are at the very least started (most need two before moving on to a yearly schedule). All Mayhew cats have been behaviourally and medically assessed which informs our re-homing criteria and allows us to pass on information to you as adopters prior to taking on the commitment of adopting a cat. This commitment can be up-to 20 years so make sure you have looked into the costs involved in caring for a cat, including insurance, veterinary fees and general care (food, litter, toys etc). At all stages of the adoption process we consider everything that can affect the cat and is why we carry out home visits to make sure they will be happy in their new surroundings before sending them home. What we will never do is compromise a cats welfare by letting them be adopted into the wrong home environment. That would not be fair to the cat or you as prospective adopters. We take care to match you with a suitable companion and hope that our years of experience can guide you in the process of giving a cat its new fur-ever home.
