Benny

Benny is a handsome young man who enjoys sitting on laps. He will need an experienced owner who can read any signs of frustration and who isn’t too house proud as he does like a good scratch! He enjoys his fuss and is happiest when he is well fed. Puzzle feeders and toys will help keep him occupied as well as making him a happy chapppy. He will need a garden and cat flap so he can enjoy his own space as well as a home that isn’t too hectic. He will enjoy the quiet life and would love to be given time to get to know you so you can learn all his good (sitting on laps) and cheeky (love bites) behaviours. Oh Benny!

Other Notes

Benny is ok being left for a full working day but will need a cat flap fitted regardless of your working hours. He is an adventurous soul who will enjoy his own patch of land when the mood strikes.We feel he would be ok living with sensible older teenagers (15+) but would need to be the only cat in the household. During his stay at Mayhew Benny has had no known health concerns. He is now just waiting for a new home where she can be taken care of for life with an experienced owner. 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.
