Duke is looking for a new beginning from his current foster home and is a loveable member of the noble classes. He is looking for his very own duchy to rule over but won't be too fussy over the size of his lands so long as there is a nice warm lap to curl up on. A servant or three to wait on him with dreamies and back rubs and so long as you fulfil you're duties to the highest order he'll ensure that his fiefdom runs smoothly by following you from room to room to supervise you of course! This is serious business and one befitting his noble standing will only expect the very best!
Duke is ok to be left for a full working day but will need a cat flap fitted regardless of your working hours. We feel that he would be fine living with sensible teenagers due his temperament and behaviour and would be happiest as the only cat in your household. During his stay at Mayhew Duke has had no health concerns and is now looking for the purr-fect place to call his own. 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.
Duke settled into foster care very quickly and seemed at ease within 30 minutes of arriving! We call Duke our Gentle Giant. He is very sweet natured and a little silly and clumsy sometimes. He loves attention and loves being around people and bonds easily with whoever gives him a chance. He absolutely loves food and it can be quite hard to carry a bowl of food without tripping over him around your legs. He has been a pleasure and a funny cat to foster and we hope he finds his forever home soon, he’s looking forward to a trip to the garden.
