    The Mayhew Animal Home receives a special delivery

    On the 11th February The Mayhew Animal Home received an unusual call from a concerned staff member at Harlesden Royal Mail depot, saying a cat and her four small kittens had been found in one of their unused mail trolleys.

    The kittens were only two weeks old – and with mum defiantly by their side they had been living out in the cold and rain since they were born. The Mayhew’s Animal Welfare Officers Paul Grimes and Rodi Clarke went to collect them all and bring them to the warmth of The Mayhew, where they can be monitored and provided for until ready to find new loving homes.

    To celebrate their postal service roots and unusual start in life, Mum has since been named ‘Jess the Cat’, and her four kittens Postman Pat, Mrs.Goggins, Miss Hubbard and Granny Dryden after the popular children’s TV show.

    Please note that currently these cats are not available for adoption. If you are interested in rehoming a Mayhew cat or kitten we have many looking for loving new homes, alternatively a donation will help us continue to provide for needy animals such as these.
