Hello, we are Buddy and Oliver, Olly for short. We are two boys who love each other dearly.
When we first went to our foster mummy’s house, we hid under the bed. Every time mummy stood up and walked around, we scattered. After a few nights we hopped up on the couch and sat next to her but we still didn’t like her to touch us. To be honest with you, it took a couple of weeks for us to settle down, I don’t know why we were so scared, our mummy gives us lots of strokes and we like to give her “the munchkin” on her tummy, that’s the thing where you kneed the soft wobbly belly up and down with your paws while emitting lots of loud purrs.
Mummy goes off to work every morning, before she leaves, we sit with her and let her stroke us while she has a cuppa tea. She really enjoys it and she rewards us with a yummy bowl of cat biscuits. While she is at work, we like to snuggle up together, we also like to sit on the windowsill watching the world go by while working on our tans. We have loads of toys but would prefer to veg out instead.
At night when mummy goes to bed, we sneak in and cuddle up to her. In the morning we rub against her legs when she is in the toilet.
Oliver’s eye gets teary every now and then, this is because he has a blocked tear duct. All you have to do is wipe it once in the morning and once at night with a cotton ball dunked in warm salty water.
Oliver is heavier than me, you would think it was the other way around because I tend to eat all the food. Our mummy has to feed me in another room because I am sneaky and eat Olly’s food if she is not watching.
We are looking for a forever home with people who can give us lots of strokes on the belly, back and under our chins. We promise to rub your legs when you are sitting on the loo, gaze at you adoringly when your putting on your make up and talk to you when we are hungry. We also offer the best “munchkin” massage ever! Come and see us in our foster home in Mt Lawley.
Buddy & Oliver are two of our special FIV positive cats. This means you need to take extra special care of these handsome boys. FIV+ cats have to protect their immune systems - just like humans who have recovered from a health issue. So you will need to ensure they have their annual health check and vaccinations plus regular worm and flea treatments (just as you would for any cat). In support of our lovely FIV+ cats the annual vaccination is free at the Cat Haven Vet Clinic. To protect both them and other cats Buddy & Oliver need to be indoor cats and, unless you have another FIV+ cat, they need to be your one-and-only feline fur-boys.
To meet me in foster care please contact our foster care department on:
The foster carer will then be in touch to discuss this further and arrange a meeting. If after leaving your details you have not heard from anyone after 48 hours, please let us know. Once you’ve decided to give a foster cat or kitten a furrever home you’ll need to come to Cat Haven in person to complete the adoption paperwork before taking them home. We can’t wait to hear from you!
