Onyx is a lively little fella who is keen to show you just what a busy little bee he is. He loves his fuss and will jump up on laps and loves to be the centre of attention. Sometimes the fame goes to his head a little bit and he can channel his inner diva by getting play bitey and quite boisterous. He has tons of energy so will need the right home where he can explore and be given lots of things to keep him occupied. He’ll enjoy a garden. He just needs to learn a few manners so he continues to grow up on the right side of the tracks. He’s very smoochy when he settles and really nestles in to your hand for fuss and cuddles. He is just a bit of a work in progress but you’ll discover a furry masterpiece in there with some love and attention. Before he can be reserved any children in the home will have to come into Mayhew and meet him. We have weekend appointments to facilitate this, so be sure to bring all the family down when you come in for an interview.
Onyx is ok to be left for no longer than 4 hours as he will need some extra supervision and the right socialising to become a well-rounded adult cat. We feel that he would be fine to live with sensible teenagers and would need to be the only cat in the household. During his stay at Mayhew, Onyx has had no known health concerns and is waiting to find the very best home that will suit his needs down to the ground. 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.
There is a lot to consider before adopting a new family member
