Norman arrived as a stray cat. On arrival we noticed he was drinking a lot and has since been diagnosed with a rare condition for cats called Diabetes Insipidus (not to be confused with sugar Diabetes). This requires medication twice a day for life. He also has Gingivostomatitis which is inflammation in his mouth and gums. He is currently coping well with this but will likely need dental/oral care in the future. He is doing well despite his issues and is now finally looking to find a loving new permanent home of his own. Norman is a sweet, sensitive soul who can get a bit worried and a bit spooked at times by loud noises or sudden movements. When he gets settled he is an affectionate boy who will sit on your lap and even use his paws to tap you to get your attention. He likes a good head and neck fussing and just needs an experienced new human that he can get to know and love. In light of his previous lifestyle and current temperament he would be best suited to live in a quiet, calm all adult home and ideally have people about to keep an eye on him (even post Covid). He will also appreciate a home with people who must have had some previous adult cat care experience and be aware of his medical issues. You must be financially secure and have an enclosed garden. This will mean he has the space he needs and you can safely monitor him and his condition. Currently Norman has no treatment for his Gingivostomatitis, but is on medication for his Diabetes Insipidus (which costs roughly £40 for 2 months supply). Mayhew will provide a month’s free medication and a prescription to take to your own vet. He will likely need additional vet checks/ tests etc and likely to need dental care as well which will all be additional costs and not covered by insurance.
