I've found my furever family!


We're happy to tell you that Mayhem has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Cats Page to see the pups currently available.

Mayhem is one big baby! At 17 pounds, he’s a chunk (and a perfect bed warmer). He loves cuddles, will come when called, sits beside you or on you (the parts that fit), and follows his foster mom everywhere (even from the bed to the bathroom to the bed again). Mayhem was part of a Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) project. He was supposed to be returned after his neuter and vaccines, but right before his appointment something bad happened to him. He was attacked and his entire side was opened. He was rushed to Riverside Vet, where they performed one of their routine miracles, pulling his skin over to stitch him up. After recovery, he let us know he preferred spending his days as an inside companion. Mayhem loves his people but is not always cooperative when he doesn’t get his way. He occasionally will grab or swat if his food isn’t ready promptly or if he is moved off the bed before he is done lounging. Fortunately, he does this with no claws, but due to his size, caution is needed. He also loves to play, especially with wand toys. He won’t say no to a catnip kicker either. While he loves playing with the foster kittens, he reacts by swatting any adult fosters who try to challenge him, especially the other large male cats. He lives in his foster home with dogs, mostly ignoring them. His best home might be as an only cat with a family who has owned/loved other big boys before because of these reasons.
