Harry is a big handsome boy who is very inquisitive and very playful. He loves nothing more than trying to hook you with his big paws from under a door and generally being a bit of a show off. He likes a head rub and enjoys his fuss but can nip and get a bit boisterous so someone who can work on this behaviour would be great. He is just a bit bored of his small surroundings and would be so much happier in a home of his own. So don’t delay because our Harry is quite the looker and is now hoping to find his forever home with you as his servants. Sound like fun? Sounds Paw-some to Harry!

Other Notes

Harry 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 in an adult only home due his temperament and behaviour and would be happiest as the only cat in your household. During his stay at Mayhew Harry 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.

Foster Carer Comments

Harry is doing really well, he settled in very quickly. He is always next to me, lying next to me on the sofa, follows me around and sleeps in the bed. He has a lot of energy, flying round like a bat out of hell with his favourite toy mouse in his mouth. He is a very affectionate cat, wanting attention all the time and is really excited when I come home.
