Special cat Jemima Puddleduck is searching for a quacking home after waddling her way into The Mayhew Animal Home for the second time.
Ten year old Jemima Puddleduck was born with a limb deformity in her front right leg, which she is able to walk on painlessly. Despite her disabilities, Jemima has always lived life to the full and can get around just fine – and now she’s waiting to be third time lucky and find her loving forever home.
Jemima first came into The Mayhew two years ago after our Animal Welfare Officers found her living as a stray in someone’s back garden. Our Officers brought her straight back to The Home where our Vet Team could health check and assess her and our Cattery Staff could settle her into a cosy, warm cat cabin.
She became an instant hit with all our staff and volunteers; it was clear that she is one of a kind with her little waddle and cute meow that makes her sound like a duck – hence why she was aptly named Jemima Puddleduck.
In no time at all, Jemima found a loving home with a caring owner, but sadly after two years her owner unexpectedly became ill and could no longer care for her.
At The Mayhew we will take back any ex-Mayhew animal that the adopter is unable to care for, and so we brought Jemima back into our care. Now we are hoping to find this little girl the happily ever after she so deserves.
Jemima is truly one of the sweetest cats in the world, who is ever so affectionate and could quite happily sit on laps having cuddles all day.
Our Cat Adoption Officer, Matthew Pearson, said: “Jemima Puddleduck is such a special girl who will make a fantastic companion for that lucky person or family. She’s charismatic, friendly and absolutely loves company, and we would love to find her a loving forever home soon.”
“Despite her leg deformity, Jemima can walk about and can even get up and down steps. As she gets older she may get a bit of arthritis in her other legs, but she’s gets around just fine. She can sometimes get a bit tired when she walks about, so it would be ideal if her new owners could provide her with plenty of spots to rest her paws.”
“We are looking to find Jemima a loving home where she will be the only pet. She can live with children who are used to cats and it would be ideal if her new owner had some outside space like a roof terrace or balcony as she loves to sprawl out and relax in the sun.”
Rehoming special girl Jemima Puddleduck will be an incredibly rewarding experience – and we think you’d be quackers not to love her!
