Want to adopt me?To meet me in foster care please contact our foster care department on:
Phone:(08) 9442 3600
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!
Hello, my name is Jolene and I'm a very sweet girl but I can be a bit timid at times. I've had some recent ups and downs where I was adopted a while ago but I had to go back to Cat Haven, as sadly my owner passed away. I was really not happy to be back at the shelter again, so I’ve packed my bags and have gone out to a foster home for a nice break.
My foster family would like you to know some things about me so they changed Dolly Parton’s song to suit me and it goes like this..
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Your beauty is beyond compare.
With a smokey coat of black fur.
With squishy paws and eyes of emerald green.
Your meows are like a breath of spring.
Your purrs are soft like summer rain.
And I would want to adopt you, in your forever home.
Here are some extra bits of info about me... starting with I’m not a very active cat who moves around a lot, to tell you the truth my favourite thing to do is sit on a nice comfy surface, like a pillow, bed, couch or someone’s lap even! Once I've found a good spot I'll spend most of the day there just chilling. My next favourite things are getting lots of pats, followed by having my fur brushed, with brushing and grooming being really important to me, as I’m an oldie and have trouble moving around and cleaning those hard to reach places, so I would be really grateful if you could brush my fur from time to time to help me out.
Another important thing about me is that because of my senior status my eyesight isn't the best and sometimes I can be a bit flighty, especially If I don’t hear you coming and you walk up behind or next to me while I’m eating or drinking, which can cause me to panic and hightail it into another room, but once I realise it’s someone I know I’ll circle back for pats and affection.
Due to my flighty nature I would like my new home to be a quiet place with no young children. I can tolerate other cats but I’m not overly keen on socialising with them and prefer to be by myself or with people.
I would love to show that I’m such a sweet, friendly girl, so please come meet me at my foster home in Bassendean.
Jolene 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. She also has mild dental tartar and associated gum changes. This is very common in mature cats.
Jolene has had blood tests or urine tests that indicate that she may be at risk of developing Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). CKD is one of the most common conditions affecting older cats, and is often progressive over time. It is estimated that around 20-50% of cats over 15 years of age will have some degree of CKD present. Now that we know that she is at risk, there are steps you can take at home and with your primary care veterinarian to look after her kidneys and give her the ability to live a long and comfortable life at home. We will provide you with information about this.
