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!
Meow there friends, Chessie is my name and I am a fluffy lady who has sadly found her way to Cat Haven after experiencing a difficult home situation. Back then I did not have enough food and what I had was making me itchy.. imagine! It is all sorted now though.
I am affectionate and after a proper introduction I will soon give you gentle headbutts and follow you around the house. I love sitting in the same room or couch with you. My foster family says I have the sweetest chirp when I greet you home! I also have my quirks.. but who doesn't? I do get a bit overwhelmed when patted and I will remind you with a nip that I am in control of our relationship. For this reason it would be best for me to be in a home without young children.
My purr is the softest and I like if you sit with me when I start eating so I feel safe and in good company.
I would like to find myself a new family where I can be spoilt, loved and understood like the beautiful lady I am! You can meet me at my foster home which is in the Armadale area.
Chessie has a skin condition which has caused severe hair loss and itching in the past. She needs to stay on z/d diet and have monthly flea treatments.
Chessie 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. She should lead a normal life despite this diagnosis, but there are a few special considerations that need to be made in regards to her health and well-being long term. These include being an inside only cat; slow and careful introduction to other cats; and annual vaccinations and health checks.
After adoption she needs to revisit the Cat Haven clinic for a dental extraction between April-September 2021. This date has been offered because this is the time that Cat Haven vets have availability in their schedule for non-urgent procedures.
