  • The Lionesses

    These little lionesses are looking to go places and show you just how teamwork makes the dream work. They can all be re-homed individually or in any combo’s, it just depends how many you can adopt. Carter is the only little boy in the group but is small and mighty. He loves to be the baby and enjoys jumping in and out of cardboard boxes. Hemp is a cheeky, free spirit who loves her games and climbing up your trouser legs. Bronze is the brains of the operation and knows how to get all the best spots to snooze in. She is sweet and affectionate and loves her feather toys. Russo is bold and adventurous and leads the forward line. She likes watching the birds and playing in her cat tunnel. They could all live with kids around 12years old as despite their fun loving nature they do have a sensitive side and will need a bit of time to get to know you. So, if you want to be part of the pride, keep reading to see if you could be their purr-fect match and give any or all of them the fur-ever home they deserve…

    Other Notes

    Carter, Hemp, Bronze & Russo have all been behaviourally assessed and given preventative treatment at Mayhew in the form of microchipping, neutering, vaccinations (at least first) and flea and worming treatment. Please specify in your application form which cat you may be most interested in, remember they can all be re-homed individually or in any duo, trio or even a midfield diamond (that's just means all four if you wanted to keep the gang together). These kittens were found abandoned in a home by some builders who stumbled across them while they were renovating a recently vacated property in mid July. At the end of the works they brought them to us as they had actually been feeding them and looking after them while on the job up until then. It turns out the last tenant left them behind and didn't want them anymore. Their Mum (Sarina) was with them too and is still hanging out with all the family and is also looking to fin a home of her own.

    Foster Carer Comments

    Russo is a gorgeous good luck charm and mummy cats’ favourite. She is a real princess and has a big personality and will make any successful adopter her whole universe. She is loving and affectionate but also enjoys having her own life – which is made up of being nosey and running up and down the hallway. She is a calm and friendly kitty who is well at ease when she knows you are her human and trusts you. Bronze has it all, brains, beauty, and personality. This beautiful girl is so sweet, loving and giving once she gets to know you and has the cutest little black toe beans ever. She loves a belly rub but can be a bit cheeky at play times, but that’s because she can’t bear to miss out on any fun. She has emotional intelligence and cares for her siblings and any visitors that come around (usually by way of trying to give them a wash!). Hemp is a fun gal, she goes with the flow and is really chilled out…except at play times, and then all focus is on the game. She is smart, friendly and a great communicator and will show you where she wants to go in the house. She is a natural performer and entertainer and has bundles of energy and likes her human ‘fans’ to join in on the action by rolling balls in various directions so she can chase them. Carter is a gentle, sweet, sensitive soul who is the baby of the litter. He was shy at first but now that he trusts his human, he is very loving and demands I give him a fuss and belly rubs whenever he sees me. He is smaller than his sisters but that doesn’t hold him back when it comes to play time; he will be right at the forefront of all the action and often sleeps in his superman pose too.
