Joseph is a big boy who is very cuddly. He will come over and sit on your lap and enjoys a good bit of fuss. He is a bit of a foody so will do anything for a cheeky extra meal so beware his hungry gnashers if treats are involved. He came to us as a big burley boy who had been living outside so he does have his moments where you need to watch that his exuberance for fuss doesn’t turn into a nip sandwich! Despite his occasional chomp he is a hunky dude who will enjoy his own garden and the chance to lay down some roots so he can have a home and security he probably has never fully had!
Joseph is ok being left for a full working day but will need a cat flap fitted regardless of your working hours. He likes his fuss and is a sociable cat but will be fine having time to himself when he wants it. We feel he would be best suited to live in an all adult home, that wasn’t too hectic and would need to be the only cat in the household. During his stay at Mayhew Jospeh has had no known health concerns. He is now just waiting for a new home where he 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.
