Hi, I'm Philip. When I was a younger I used to go by the name Kitty but since I'm a strapping 4-year-old man now, I prefer Philip.
My face may look a little grumpy, but I assure you I'm very chilled. It's possible that I look that way because every new person I meet asks me really silly questions like "Can humans get FIV?". Of course not. The F stands for "Feline" so just relax and keep me inside away from other cats and we never have to mention FIV again!
Once we're past our first introduction and all the silly questions, I am extremely affectionate. I just love a good pat and head scratch. I can't get enough of it. I'm a bit shy though so when your hand is finally too weak from scratching my head for hours on end I like to take a nap in a quiet place like under the bed or behind the couch. I don't really like to be held but I am known to jump onto an open lap in front of the TV if something good is on.
Just like some humans I'm not really a huge fan of small children and dogs. I just get a bit agitated by them, even when they are really well behaved and not running around screaming. Luckily, you can keep me away from children and dogs, but some poor humans will have to go on enduring them out in public. Haha
Please come and meet me soon in my foster home in Maida Vale.
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!
