    Penelope is a an absolute dreamboat. She is very friendly and loves her fuss and cuddles but she can lull you in to a false sense of security. Penelope is no slouch and loves to play. She also likes to curl up in your arms and nibble and chew on fingers if she gets a bit carried away. She needs a loving, consistent home with people who understand cats and will teach her how to be a lady. Her sultry purr will distract you but its important she learn in the right way so she continues to progress as the little superstar kitten we know and love who will warm your heart and make you feel all fuzzy inside. Penelope is a smashing little girl who in the right hands will shake of her past and become your everything! Before she can be reserved any children in the home will have to come into Mayhew and meet her. We have weekend appointments to facilitate this, so be sure to bring all the family down when you come in for an interview.

    Other Notes

    Penelope is ok to be left for no longer than 4 hours as she will need some extra supervision and the right socialising to become a well-rounded adult cat. We feel that she would be fine to live with sensible older teenagers however an adult home especially one that will be able to keep up with all her shenanigans may be best. She would prefer to be the only cat in the household too as she is a bit full on for other cats we have introduced her too. During her stay at Mayhew, Penelope has had no known helath concerns and is now just waiting for her brand new home with people who will love and care for her for a lifetime to come. 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.
