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!
Do you have a calm and quiet home for a sweet chonky boy like me to luxuriate in? My name's Brooklyn and after a tiring first 5 years of life, I'm ready to find that forever home to settle down in.
My journey hasn't always been easy. I've spent time on the streets where I picked up FIV (more on that later). I eventually wound up at Cat Haven where I was so sad and confused that I hid behind the CEO's desk for a month. I did love it when she patted me though, so much so that I would even roll on my back and drool.
Since then I have been in foster care, while I recovered from some ouch-y dental surgery. I've learned to trust humans and every day I become more relaxed.
My favourite hobbies are:
*Chasing my toy balls around the house
*Playing hide and seek behind doors with my foster mum
*Laying on the bed while someone strokes me
*Cuddling up and getting a belly rub
*Eating treats from the squeezy tube
I'm looking for a home with someone who can be patient with me. I'm an extremely friendly boy, but it takes me a while to relax, and sudden loud noises still spook me. At first, I might seem scared but give me some treats and lots of pats and I will come to adore you and be a great companion.
Come meet me at my foster home in East Perth today!
Brooklyn has some scarring in his left pinna, we often call these ears cauliflower ears. This is is an old injury and is not painful or progressive. He does not need any treatment for it. He has also has sustained long term sun damage to one or both ears, and in some cases the nose as well. He has been checked by the Cat Haven veterinarians who decided the changes are so mild that he does not need any treatment at this stage.
Brooklyn 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 well-being long term. These include being an inside only cat; slow and careful introduction to other cats; and annual vaccinations and health checks.
