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.

Pursonality TraitsHi my name is Oliver, and I'm a good boy looking for a new home. I’ve had a bit of a hard life before I met my foster family. But I can see what a little patience and love can do to an old bachelor like me.
I’ve made friends with my foster family and their dog. I really enjoy sitting on the lounge beside you and I will sing you my purr which my foster mum says is very relaxing! I have a soft quiet meow you’ll only hear occasionally. I really enjoy my food and am happy to lounge around all day or follow you to see what you’re up to. I have immaculate toilet manners. I prefer not to be picked up and cuddled, sadly I’m not used to that affection, but with time I’m sure to relax. I am shy at first but once I can trust you I enjoy you stroking my fur.
Due to my FIV status I must be an indoor only cat, which will also help protect my pale nose from sun damage. I can live with other felines after a very slow and careful introduction. Come meet me at my foster home in Currambine.
Health IssuesOliver has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). FIV is a retrovirus that can compromise the immune system, spread by fighting and deep penetrating wounds. Once diagnosed with FIV, he was thoroughly examined by the Cat Haven Vet Clinic and found to be otherwise healthy. He should lead a normal life despite this diagnosis, but there are a few special considerations that need to be made in regards to his health and wellbeing long term.
Oliver has presented with a mild case of gingivitis which is an inflammation of the gums. Dental hygiene may help prevent its development. Ask the cat welfare officer who is assisting you for a dental hygiene handout. We have recommended that he stays on a dental hygiene diet.
