Little Bear is a sweet little boy who has had quite the transformation. He has gone from shy and retiring to enjoying a lap to sit on. He will need a quiet home where he can be the centre of attention so you can see this little bear cub become king of the jungle. He just needs a kind, considerate home where he will feel his way into becoming part of the family. When he is fully settled, you’ll see a playful boy who loves his fuss and cuddles. He is not so keen on being picked up but happily says hello to demand fuss or his dreamies. Ideally you’ll have some experience with shy cats and you must also take into consideration any possible future health concerns. More details of which can be seen below as well as a word from his current foster carer…
Little Bear arrived at Mayhew with Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis or FCGS. This a feline dental disease marked by chronic and severe inflammation of a cat’s gums (gingiva) and mucosa (the moist tissue that lines the inside of the mouth. Little Bear has had several teeth removed (He doesn't have too many left) to help with his FCGS and seems to have helped as he no longer has any inflammation in his mouth or on his gums. This should be monitored in his new home and treatment given if any recurrences as he may need some of the rest of his teeth removed in the future. Medical exclusions may apply. Speak with your insurance provider for more information.
Little Bear is a gorgeous jet-black cat with a little white chest. When he first came to me, he was very quiet and stayed in his little room for a couple of days and slept on top of the washing machine or in his little house. He wasn’t so keen on fuss but we got to know each other slowly. After settling in and having to have several teeth removed (17) our little gummy bear is so much happier. He loves his grub and a nice warm lap to sit on. He now investigates the whole flat and has his favourite spots on the bed or on the sofa. As soon as I approach him now I can hear loud purring and he flops onto this side for strokes! At the beginning, he almost didn’t know how to react with the stroking i.e. cannot contain his excitement! Which was adorable. He now absolutely loves head scratches and will nudge your hand to force you to stroke his head and demand a warm lap as soon as he hears you sit down on the sofa. He also has a favourite catnip toy which I have noticed he puts into a cardboard box every night once he has finished playing!
