    Augustus

    Augustus is a big handsome boy who loves to be centre of attention. For a cat so big he has the most delicate lady like miaow which has to be seen to be believed. He likes a lap to clamber on and is partial to some grub. He loves to be wined and dined and would be ever so grateful for a nice loving home which has his own garden that he can explore when the time is right. He is a lovely lad who has tons of love to give and there is enough of him that you can’t really miss him. He loves his fuss and has a secret white patch of fur under his chin that only his most favourite people get to see and tickle.

    Other Notes

    Augustus is ok be left for a full working day but will need a cat flap fitted regardless of your working hours. He is a big boy with lots to do so would enjoy easy access out to a garden. We feel that he would be ok living with experienced older teenagers but an all adult home might suit him best and he will need to be the only cat in your household. During his stay at Mayhew Augustus has been treated for a few things. When he arrived he had an abscess above his eye and had eye drops to treat conjunctivitis and did have a few sneezing episodes which we are keeping an eye on. He has most recently had some skin irritation and ulcers in his mouth. All of his issues are now on the mend and his skin and the skin and ulcers were treated with a steroid injection. Mayhew will see him back for any issues relating to his skin or the ulcers in his mouth within the first 2 months of going home. No cause has been found for these issues but our vets feel stress has a big part to play. 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.
