Kiwi (I call her Minnie as she has Minnie Mouse ears on her back) has a personality all of her own. Mornings are her exercise time and she runs around the apartment for about 5 minutes, enjoying slipping on the loose carpets. It is quite entertaining.
Recently she has taken to sitting with me no matter which room I'm in. When she hears the TV on she runs to the couch as if to say OK, Let's settle in. While watching TV she will lie with me. On and off my lap depending on her mood and how much I am scratching her head. Then when I go to bed and attempt to read, my chest is the best place to be and I am encouraged to provide more head scratching. She doesn't sleep on the bed but prefers to be on the floor next to the bed or on the bench at the end of the bed. She plays with the toy bear which is very cute.
Kiwi needs a quiet home with no dogs and no children. However, she may well enjoy the company of another cat but this has not been tested while in foster.
If you think you can offer Kiwi the safe, loving and quiet home she deserves, please come meet her in her foster home in East Perth.
Kiwi has mild dental tartar and associated gum changes. This is very common in mature cats.
Kiwi has sustained sun damage to her nose. Sun damage is dangerous because it can develop into skin cancer (specifically squamous cell carcinoma). In these cases, surgery to remove the affected skin will be required. Kiwi has been checked by the Cat Haven veterinarians who decided the changes are so mild that she does not need any treatment at this stage. We recommend that she is kept completely indoors and out of the sun to prevent progression of this condition. Cat Haven does not take any responsibility for any subsequent conditions or issues that your cat may develop in the future as a result of this condition.
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!
