Hello there! Our names are Simba and Nala and we are a brother and sister duo looking for a new home. Our owner had to surrender us due to allergies which was very sad, but now we’re in foster care living our best lives! Let us take turns telling you a little bit about ourselves....
I’m Simba (short hair) and I’m a super smoochy boy who loves pats, chin scratches and cuddles! I’m very outgoing (I’m sitting on my foster mum’s lap as she writes this trying to switch her attention to me!) and I settled in at my foster home fast. I love exploring and sitting at the windowsill or doorway and watching the world outside. I also LOVE to eat!
I’m Nala (medium hair), I’m shyer than my brother but I’m just as sweet! I am still a bit timid and can startle easily but I am gradually starting to approach my foster mums for pats. I have the softest fur ever! I like playing with toys like Simba, sometimes we play together but we do like to hang out separately. I like to chill out and sleep or watch out the window during the day.
Our foster mums say we are a delight to look after, we are fantastic cats who would fit in to any family - we would prefer a house with older kids though. So that our pink noses are protected from sun damage we also need a home where we can minimise our exposure to the sun. If you would like to meet us, our foster home is in Tuart Hill!
Simba and Nala have mild dental tartar and associated gum changes. This is very common in mature cats. Simba has also presented with a mild case of gingivitis which is an inflammation of the gums. Dental hygiene may help prevent its development. Ask for a dental hygiene handout when you are at Cat Haven. We have recommended that Simba stays on a dental hygiene diet.
Nala has a heart murmur. The murmur has been assessed by Cat Haven veterinary staff as mild (grade three or less) and not likely to cause any adverse effects on her health. It is still advised that you have your primary care veterinarian monitor the heart murmur each time she has her annual health check. If you would like to discuss this further with one of Cat Haven’s veterinarians please ask one of our grounds staff to assist you in booking a consultation.
Cat Haven does not take any responsibility for any subsequent conditions or issues that may develop in the future as a result of these conditions.
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!
