Lois (3years) and Kara (4months) are looking for a new beginning from their current foster home and are two very sweet girls who have been through a lot together already. After some of Lois’s babies didn’t make it left just Kara to be looked after and while it was a little rocky to start with they now are inseparable and must go home together. They do spend time apart which is fine as Kara is still growing up and Lois has been a good Mum but they both can’t resist a box to clamber in to and Kara will happily play with a sock or empty toilet roll. They are both very sweet and affectionate and would love a chilled out home where they can be loved for a lifetime and want for nothing.You will need to come in for an interview to assess your suitability and if successful you can go forward to meet Lois and Kara in their current foster home environment.
Lois and Kara are currently in a foster home but are ok to be left for up to 6 hours a day. They like company and would welcome extra cuddles. We feel that they would be fine living with sensible teenagers due to their temperament and past history and would be happiest as the only cats in your household. During their stay at Mayhew they have both had soft motions and some flu like symptoms. Lois looked as if she had a flea bite reaction too but is fine now after having a flea treatment. Everything is now on the mend and they are both just hoping it doesn’t take too long to find a new place to call home. 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.
Lois and Kara are currently in a foster home waiting to be adopted and this is what their foster carers have to say about them: Kara and Lois are the sweetest, most adorable mama & baby cat duo. They have a very close bond and it is absolutely wonderful to see how they interact. Mum Lois is easier to hold and carry but Baby Kara, has the softest coat ever but is much more wriggly when you try to hold her. Both these cats are self-sufficient, easy to take care of and good eaters without being gluttonous. The best part of the day is when they both curl up on my bed next to me at night and sleeping and purring away. They are quite the characters Kara did the funniest thing when she walked around the house with sock for hours, taking it from room to room proudly. Both of them will be a great addition to any cat-loving home and are very special little felines.
