Kiko is a big old ladies man, who loves to show of his belly when he meets the girl of his dreams. Sorry fella’s I’m sure he’ll love you too but Kiko is very much a loveable scamp who knows what he likes and that’s not beards and brawn! On as serious note Kiko needs a chilled out home with people who will give him time to settle in so he can get to know you and when he does he’ll be sitting on laps, having lots of play time and enjoying lots of fuss and cuddles. Kiko is a handsome boy and don’t he just know it! Lock up your daughters because Kiko is in town and looking to move in! Paw-some!
Kiko is ok to be left for a full working so long as a cat flap is fitted. We feel that he would be fine living in a home with sensible older teenagers so long as he likes who he meets and would be happiest as the only cat in your household. During his stay at Mayhew Kiko has had some flu like symptoms which have all cleared up. He has also had surgery on an old injury to his back right leg when he arrived around April time. This has healed very well but he may always show signs of lameness from time to time and is nothing to worry about. Mayhew vets are happy to discuss his surgery further with any prospective adopters. 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.
Kiko was living in a foster home and this is what his foster carers had to say about him: Kiko is an absolute sweetheart who will bring you joy every single day. He started off a bit shy but we won his trust by playing with him. Once he knew things weren’t scary he enjoyed being groomed and the rest is history. He really likes his toys especially his feathery ones. He likes to interact and loves a good play session too. He is always up to something and we have been woken up in the early hours of the morning to the sound of him playing away and getting into mischief. He loves to be brushed and maneuvers himself so you can hit all the right places. Usually his neck and under his chin. He is a big foodie and not particularly fussy so this is definitely another way to his heart. I have no doubt that once he settles in Kiko will make his new family just as happy as he has made us.
There is a lot to consider before adopting a new family member
