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!
Hi, my name is Kaleo! I am a very sweet boy, but you will need to be patient with me while I settle into my new surroundings. I am a little shy and still learning to trust people again.
Due to my timidity, I think I would do best in a quiet home without young children. I like dogs though!
I absolutely love my food, so I will be sure to let you know when I am ready for my breakfast and dinner (I can be quite loud!). During the day, I enjoy curling up and resting in a quiet place, such as on top of the washing machine, on a chair or on my foster mum’s bed. In the evenings, I like to watch the world go by from the comfort of the loungeroom windowsill. After I have gobbled up my dinner, I like to spend time watching TV with my human and canine companions. Once I can trust you, you will see how affectionate I am and hear how loud my purr is!
Come meet me at my foster home in East Fremantle.
Kaleo 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 his health.
Kaleo has a skin condition which has caused severe hair loss and itching in the past. There are a number of different things that can cause this condition, and it can be difficult to determine the underlying cause without specialists testing and trials. It is not known what causes his skin reaction, therefore it is important that you use a variety of preventative measures. Allergic skin conditions can recur throughout an animal’s lifetime and continued treatment/ intermittent medication may be required.
Kaleo 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. 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. These include being an inside only cat; slow and careful introduction to other cats; and annual vaccinations and health checks.
