Robbie is looking for a new beginning from his current foster home and we hope you are ready to get lost in the fluffy wonder that is this big beautiful boy? If you are then Robbie is the guy for you. He could very well have the worlds strongest neck as he has such a huge fluffy head on top if it that can't help but enjoy some fuss. He is a sweet boy who was looking a bit worse for wear when he arrived as he was badly matted, but with a bit of TLC he's looking much better. He’ll need a dedicated owner willing to brush him every day and make him even more spiffy than he already is. He is very affcetionate and likes to give head bumps too. He just needs some time to chill out, ideally without too many cats in the neighbourhood so he can be the biggest, soppiest cat in town.You will need to come in for an interview to assess your suitability and if successful you can go forward to meet Robbie in his current home environment.
Robbie is currently in a foster home but is ok to be left for a full working day but will need a cat flap fitted regardless of your working hours. We feel that he would be fine living with Sensible older teenagers due to his temperament and past history and would be happiest as the only cat in your household. During his stay at Mayhew Robbie has had no health concerns but he was badly matted so this is something you’ll need to keep on top of. He is all fine now and is looking to find his purr-fect new 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.
Robbie is currently in a foster home waiting to be adopted and this is what his foster carers have to say about him: Robbie is doing well and is a really nice cat. We’ve not had any problems apart from him being a greedy guts. Whoever takes him will have to be careful not to over feed him. He loves attention and enjoys his fuss and really likes being the centre of attention. He knows how to get what he wants and one of his best tricks is getting you to come to him while he lies spread out on the floor. He spends most of his nights on our bed which is nice and in the mornings, he likes to play with our feet as we move them under the duvet. He likes to follow you about from room to room and he even waits outside the bathroom for you as well. He is a bit of a show off and the other day when my husband got home he actually jumped up and ran to greet him. He enjoys fuss from anyone and has lots of energy but at times is a bit too lazy to do anything to get rid of it so can exhibit some inappropriate play behaviours towards our ankles as we walk past! I think he also gets despondent that we keep walking past him and not stopping to pet and fuss over him but it’s a work in progress as although he plays he can lose interest in his toys which means he doesn’t burn off any exuberance with his toys as much as we’d like. Once he has a new home with access to a garden he will likely feel less frustrated and bored. He is quite active at night and is a real silly boy who has tons of character and whoever takes him on will have lots of fun together.
There is a lot to consider before adopting a new family member
