I'm a tiny and timid old lady who is looking for someone to share my twilight years. I'm not much for sitting on laps but I will settle nearby wherever you are if you're home during the day, or I'm used to being left at home by myself during the day too. I'm very quiet and well-behaved, if you do pick me up for a cuddle I won't hurt you but I'll want to be put down very quickly. And I'm always happy to have a scratch at the base of my tail!
Occasionally I'll play with odd items, like a bit of wood mulch that made it inside, but most of the time I just sit quietly or sleep. Sometimes I like to chase little lizards like skinks too, so if you like having them in the garden and you want to let me outside be warned, they might not be there for long!
Sometimes I need help with being brushed; when I shed my fur it tends to accumulate in my coat and sometimes it mats and I can't get rid of it. I don't really like being brushed but I tolerate it because I know I feel better afterwards (my foster mum gives me a treat after she brushes me to let me know I've been a good cat). Once a week is usually enough to keep my fur from matting, although when I'm shedding my winter coat twice a week might be better.
When I'm comfortable around you I'll remind you when it's dinner time; you won't hear my voice very often otherwise. My little squeak of a meow with my quiet personality has earned me the nickname 'Mouse' and both my owner and foster carer think my little squeak is adorable.
When I was a kitten I got cat flu, which affected my growth so I'm a very small cat. I recovered from that quickly though and I've been healthy for the last 10+ years.
I have shared with other animals before but since I entered foster care I've taken a liking to being the only cat, and as long as dogs know when to leave me alone I'm happy to live with them. I won't hurt any children that are around but if they don't leave me alone I might spend most of my time hiding from them. If I do anything that you think is naughty it doesn't take much to tell me so; a loud 'Oi!' or click of the fingers, even sometimes even just a look, is enough to tell me that what I just did is wrong. I'm looking forward to finding a furever home that doesn't mind leaving me to my own devices and is happy to let me be queen of the house.
Please come and meet me soon in my foster home in Balga.
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!
