Hi, I’m Cheeky and this is my sister, Tufty. We’re both feeling a little sad right now, since our owner recently died and we were brought to the Mayhew to help find us a new home. We’re just glad we still have each other. At 10 years old, we like to spend most of our time relaxing and sleeping. We’re a friendly pair and we love the company of humans.

My sister is really sweet, but she’s very nervous. When she meets someone new she shies away and meows with a trembling little voice – even if she knows I’m around to protect her! It takes her no time at all to come round, though, when coaxed with a gentle stroke under the chin.
I, on the other hand, will happily let you approach and offer up some loving, and if I’m really enjoying it I’ll even venture out of my bed to show you plenty of love back! Since being at the Mayhew I’ve been given special food, which helps my liver, and we’ve both been to the dentist, which we didn’t like at all!
We’re simple and gentle felines who love nothing more than to cosy up in a warm spot and while away the hours. We’d make a very calming and warm addition to a quiet and peaceful household. We’re used to having a garden, but don’t use it often so a small outdoor space would be fine for us.
