Bow

Bow is a handsome little boy who is sure to steal your heart in no time at all. Make sure you think with your head though because after he was found abandoned in a garden looking worse for wear he really needs to find a loving forever home. There should be no if’s, buts or maybe's with this boy as he deserves something a bit special! He enjoys his cuddles and is a sensitive soul who likes to be the centre of attention and embark on his mission of being super cute. He is a sweet, gentle boy who loves to play and can get a bit carried away with it all when he gets going. But he is just a young whipper snapper enjoying life and loving the chance to make new friends! Before he can be reserved any children in the home will have to come into Mayhew and meet him. 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

Bow is ok to be left for no longer than 4 hours as he will need some extra supervision and the right socialising to become a well-rounded adult cat. We feel that he would be fine to live with children around 10 years old and would be ok to live with another cat so long as it’s a good fit but no dogs. During his stay at Mayhew, Bow has had a few issues which have now resolved. He arrived with a high flea burden causing anemia which meant we heard a low grade 2/6 Heart Murmur, which has now gone after having some regular parasite control. He also had some soft motions which are back to normal and did have some discharge from his eyes, conjunctivitis and a small ulcer which healed with no treatment in his mouth which are likely cat flu related. He will need to keep up with vaccinations to lessen any further symptoms but should be fine going forward. He is now waiting for his brand new home with people who will love and care for him 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.

There is a lot to consider before adopting a new family member
