On Hold


Homer is a sweet and loving gentleman who really appreciates the quieter things in life. He gets the odd zoomies but generally prefers to hang out and chill rather than show any interest in his toys! During his first few weeks in foster, he was jumpy and easily startled by sudden movements, but now he has mellowed and can be quite laid back. He's even happy to get involved in some action with the odd adult visitor! He loves to give your legs a good rubbing when he wants attention (or food) and will smooch on your hand all day if you let him! Though he's not super needy and would be happy in a home where his human works full time. He will need a catflap installed regardless of working hours. Homer has had some dental work carried out whilst in our care. He has also had blood tests which have all been normal.

Other Notes

All Mayhew cats have been neutered, microchipped and will have started a vaccination course. They will have been medically assessed and treated for any issues during their stay with us and all this information will be passed on to new adopters. We recommend pet insurance for all animals and you are given 4 weeks free to go home with as part of the adoption. Any medical care outside of routine procedures will result in exclusions on a new insurance policy so speak with your preferred insurance provider for more information. The adoption fee (£80) is non-refundable so make sure you can commit to care for a cat for life. This can be 5-20 years depending on the cats age. You should consider your own health, age and housing status as well as your experience before you apply to adopt for an individual animal. At present we are unable to respond to applications that have not been successful due to staff time constraints and logistics around dealing with higher volumes of applications during the current Pandemic. Many Cats will not be listed as being able to live with very young children or other animals (cats or dogs in particular). This is due to the fact we are currently unable for you and your family to meet the animals and for us to adequately assess your current animal and how it might behave with another new cat in the home. Normally we can see the interactions between children and adults alike with a specific cat and know if it is a good fit all around. Under current restrictions this is not appropriate and as such means we have to be cautious in how we approach adoptions. Likewise, under normal circumstances we would be able to introduce your dog to a suitable animal or visit your cat in its home environment and ask more questions about how a new animal will fit in. This is also not possible so unless we have specific history we will not take the risk at this time. Our cats are all behaviourally assessed by our experienced staff and we always act in the cat’s best interest. Our job is to find a cat its forever home and as such some people will be disappointed by decisions we make but our reasons are sound and based on past knowledge of the cat, current temperament and the wider circumstances we find ourselves in. If you are unsuccessful please apply for another cat in the future or you can let us know that you have applied already and we can find your most recent application form. To help your application please give us information on how you would be best suited for the individual cat you have applied for based on its rehoming criteria.

Foster Carer Comments

Once homer settles after a few weeks, he will become very comfortable with you and anyone that enters the house. He loves receiving attention without demanding it or being needy for it so he will always be there when you want him. He will happily spend all night sitting with you and he will develops a very affectionate and close bond with a loving owner.
