Ollie is looking for a new beginning from his current foster home and is a big strapping lad who is very much his own man. He is a charming lad who enjoys a good fuss session, he just doesn’t want lots of hands on all the time. He would enjoy a chilled out home to act as his base camp and then once he is at home and settled he will develop into a loveable scamp who will hang out with you and enjoy being the centre of attention. At the moment he will pop down and sit on your lap and enjoy a good head scratch but if he will let you know if he is not in the mood. Ollie just needs some time to get to know you and the more he finds his paws the happier and more content he’ll become. He is just a big boy who knows what he wants and hopefully that’s you! You will need to come in for an interview to assess your suitability and if successful you can go forward to meet Ollie in his current foster home environment.
Ollie is currently living in a foster home but is ok to be left for a full working day but will need a cat flap fitted regardless of your working hours. He will enjoy the garden but also welcome some company once he gets to know you. We feel that he would be best suited to an all adult home due to his temperament and past history and would be happiest as the only cat in your household. During his stay at Mayhew Ollie has had no health concerns but the vets noted he has broken his upper canine but it doesn’t need removing and causes him no pain. He does sometimes not use his litter tray but we have found this occurs when its very busy and he has got himself a bit stressed out. This should improve when he gets a home and has access to his own garden. 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.
There is a lot to consider before adopting a new family member
