    Apollo and Orion

    Apollo (Black) & Orion (Ginger) are two very sweet young boys who will take you to the moon and back again. They are just adorable little lads who are cheeky and fun and love nothing more than to play and be doted on like the little stars they are. They both get on very well together so will stay as a pair and have similar personalities. Apollo is a bit more gentle and well behaved and enjoys a good tickle under his cheek. His brother Orion is a bit more cheeky. He dips his paw in his water bowl and then flicks you with it. How dastardly cute! All in all they need an extra special home where they can continue to find their feet and be the bestest little space invaders that ever lived. 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.

    Other Notes

    Apollo (Black) & Orion (Ginger) are ok to be left for no longer than 4 hours as they will need some extra supervision and the right socialising to become well-rounded adult cats. We feel that they would be fine to live with children around 8years old and would prefer to be the only cats in the household. During Their stay at Mayhew, they have had a bit of an upset stomach when we have transitioned over to a new diet but nothing serious or worrying. They are now just waiting for their brand new home with people who will love and care for them for a lifetime to come. 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.
