    Auburn and Leo

    Auburn and Leo are an unexpected story of fate and there seems to be a budding romance that has blossomed between the pair in the last few weeks. As you may know Auburn arrived after being abandoned. She has been with us since she was 3months old and has developed very well on account of her medical condition (Hydrocephalus). She is a shy little girl who is playful and will often pop on to your lap but can get a bit worried. Leo who arrived in February seems to have given her a new lease on life and together they play, chase and pounce on each other. Leo is a polar opposite, forward, lively and very curious but they get on well and we are hoping that Leo continues to light the path for Auburn as she gets bolder as the pair get to know each other. It’s very much a Rome-Leo and Juliet story but with a happily ever after. Could you give these two adorable cats a chance at happiness?!

    Other Notes

    Auburn & Leo are ok to be left for up to 6 hours a day. They can live with sensible teenagers so long as they are respectful and they like who they meet. Auburn can get a bit spooked in new surroundings so a nice calm, experienced home would suit her best. Leo is a very outgoing character so will need a home that can suit both their needs as his attitude is helping to bring Auburn out of her shell. Every adoption is unique and we want to make sure all our cats are happy and cared for so we recommend pet insurance and you must register with a local vet. Vet costs vary so please look into the expense involved in caring for a cat. Auburn & Leo have both been neutered, microchipped, 1st vaccine (at least) given and are up to date with their flea & worm treatments. They have also been health checked and behaviourally assessed which all help to guide our re-homing criteria. Leo has had a clean bill of health during his stay at Mayhew. Auburn has had Hydrocephalus (fluid on brain). Unknown cause but likely born with the issue and only seen when she arrived at Mayhew. She has been closely monitored for 8 months and symptoms have only manifest as intracranial swelling (domed head shape). This was more prominent when she was younger. She has had some soft motions on and off but is fine now on that front. Mayhew will see Auburn back for any neurological issues arising as a result of the hydrocephalus within a month post adoption. After this time any future investigations or treatment will be the new adopters responsibility and with their own private vet. Mayhew vets are happy she has developed well physically during the time she has been with us and hope that she should not have any further issues going forward.
