Meow there, Gordo is my name but my foster carers call me Harvey.
As you can see I’m a beautiful fluffball but when I was at the shelter I was hiding away a lot so people weren't able to see me. I was brought in as a stray and it seems like I’ve had a bit of a rough time. It’s been a huge change for me to go from the tough street life to this environment so I’m sure you’ll understand that I might need some time to adjust and feel comfortable.
I’m still getting used to pats and attention, but if you go very slowly with me I will accept some gentle patting and neck rubs. Cats like me that are very shy and upset can really blossom when we find a loving home and patient humans that will help us to feel safe. Do you think you could give me that second chance?
Please come and see me in my foster home in Maylands.
Gordo is one of our special FIV positive cats. This means you need to take extra special care of this handsome man. FIV+ cats have to protect their immune systems - just like humans who have recovered from a health issue. So you will need to ensure he has his 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 him and other cats Gordo needs to be an indoor cat and, unless you have another FIV+ cat, he needs to be your one-and-only feline fur-child.
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!
