Americano & Espresso are two handsome boys who will need to stay together. They are sweet little souls who love to be the centre of attention and will come and greet you as soon as you open their cabin. They are very curious and love to sniff your face and are playful little lads. They are not super crazy as they have learnt some feline manners but give them a new toy mouse and then its away we go. You’ll definitely not be short of fun moments and cheeky shenanigans with these two in tow. They are both very affectionate and while Espresso is a bit bolder Americano is not to be outdone. So if you like your coffee, dark and fluffy these two are the guys for you! Before they can be reserved any children in the home will have to come into Mayhew and meet them. We have weekend appointments to facilitate this, so be sure to bring all the family down when you come in for an interview.
Americano and Espresso are ok to be left for no longer than 4 hours as they will need some extra supervision and the right socialising to become a well-rounded adult cats. We feel that they would be fine to live with children around 8 years of age and would be happiest as the only cats in your household. During their stay at Mayhew these boys have had some squinty eyes and an upset stomach which are now all on the mend. They are just patiently waiting to find their purr-fect new forever home. 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.
