    Sylvester and Tonka

    Sylvester and Tonka (black spot on chin) are an amazing duo who are very close and cannot be separated. Whilst Tonka (approx DOB may 2019) is slightly older than Sylvester (approx DOB feb 2020), they can often be found rubbing up against each other in greeting, washing each other or having a play session as brothers often do! They like to do their own thing for the most part, they are pretty capable of keeping each other amused, although they do ask their human slaves to play with them. They do love a stroke and will happily sit up on a bed or sofa and purr away next to you, especially Tonka who demands more cuddles than Sylvester. They're very playful and simply LOVE feathery toys on a stick, we can’t emphasise how much excitement this brings them! Their other loves in life are chasing each other, dreamies, cuddles and food! Please see below more info from the foster carers

    Other Notes

    Tonka has got some gingivitis around his incisor teeth, but no extractions were needed needed. Sylvester has had dental treatment while at Mayhew. He already had several teeth missing including his upper canines. We needed to extract some of the small incisors as there were inflamed gums associated with them. The remaining teeth appear in good condition. We suspect the cause for the dental issues may have been due to a calici virus infection early in life. They may require additional dental treatment later in life. Adopters should be aware that most pet insurance companies will not cover for dental treatment once this has been diagnosed and previously treated, so should be prepared financially should dental treatment be required again in the future. Dental health can be assisted with daily maintenance such as teeth cleaning of the pet by the owners.

    Foster Carer Comments

    Tonka and Sylvester are an inseparable pair of sweeties. They have an unquenchable appetite for play time and have been amazing companions over the past few months. Sylvester is a unique little boy with a winning smile and a gentle nature. He abides the odd fuss and follows Tonka about on their misadventures around the flat. Tonka is the more affectionate of the two and is also an apt explorer. Combined they are a joy to behold and are often found grooming each other and playing silly games. They’re not lap cats as such but will come and sit with you and do enjoy being stroked. They are both very gentle, tolerant and a constant source of entertainment. Its truly a been a pleasure to foster them!
