Auburn was abandoned in somebodies garden. Her medical condition at the time is the likely reason for her being no longer wanted. She is a loving girl who is full of beans and has a real cheeky nature. So much so she will play bite if you encourage her. She does also have a shy, timid side too as she can get spooked by loud noises or in new environments. She needs an experienced home where she can fulfil her potential. She likes to sit on a lap and is very affectionate, she will just need time and TLC to get to know you and be comfortable in her new surroundings.
Auburn is ok to be left for up to 6 hours a day. She can live with sensible teenagers so long as they are respectful and she likes who she meets. She can get a bit spooked in new surroundings so a nice calm, experienced home would suit her best. 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 has been neutered, microchipped, 1st vaccine (at least) given and is up to date with flea & worm treatments. She has also been health checked and behaviourally assessed which all help to guide our re-homing criteria. 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 5 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. This will be covered until Auburn is 1 year old (up until March 2019). 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.
