Layla

Layla is a special girl who has been there done that got the t-shirt then sold it online. She is a cat for the ages who was found tucked under some floorboards. She is now hoping that her next home will be the greatest home a gal can get because only the best will do for our Layla. She loves her fuss and gets very excited when you come to say hello. She will enjoy a little garden to explore, as well as lots of cosy home comforts so she can be treated like a queen. Layla is a sweet, mature lady who needs some extra love and affection and together you can right all of the worlds wrongs in one purr filled lifetime together!

Other Notes

Layla is ok being left for a full working day provided a cat flap is fitted. Despite being a bit older she would enjoy a garden and would always enjoy some company if she can get it. We feel she would be best suited to live in an all adult home due to her past history and would need to be the only cat in the household. During her stay at Mayhew Layla has been diagnosed with a heart murmur grade 4/6. Now while this is higher on the range she does not appear to be showing any signs of heart disease which is good and will just need monitoring by your vets. Similarly the vets noticed a bit or tartar on her back teeth but not enough to require a full clean and polish at this time. Mayhew vets will be happy to discuss the heart murmur and possible subsequent issues before taking her home to put your mind at ease. This is one special lady so we want to make sure you take her home fur-ever. 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.
