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!
Pursonality TraitsHello! I’m Dorothy Diamonte, and I’m rather an attractive kitty, with my big green eyes, long whiskers and soft fur, and being a bit small is all a part of my charm.
I’m very affectionate and one my favourite things to do is sit next to you, up against your leg as you watch TV. I’m not keen on lap sits yet but I love a good head bump, and getting kisses sends my purring into overdrive.
I do happen to be a very big talker and sometimes I’ll even yell at you until you pick me up or pet me. Sometimes I do this in the dead of night, but my foster mum and I are working on that!
I occasionally start my day with a refreshing drink from the shower after my foster mum gets out, but mostly I spend my time sleeping in my armchair or chasing after flies that get in the house.
While I’m still getting used to my foster home, unexpected loud noises or things that move too quickly still scare me. I run and hide under the bed where I feel safest. The vacuum cleaner and my foster dad’s sneezes are the scariest! I also don’t feel too interested in playing just yet but all I need is time, and my confidence is sure to grow.
I was surrendered because I had toileting issues but since being at Cat Haven and in foster I have used my litterbox every single time I needed to "spend a penny". Well done, me! To help me continue on this path my forever home must have no other animals, and I’m not sure yet how I would go with kids, but I do need a stress-free home.
If you would like to meet me, I am in foster in Applecross.
Dorothy has mild dental tartar and associated gum changes. This is very common in mature cats.
Dorothy was surrendered to Cat Haven with history of toileting inappropriately. Her urine has been checked to rule out medical concerns, and it is likely that this behaviour is associated with stress and/or anxiety. It is possible that this behaviour will continue during the transition to your new home, and we cannot rule out that it may be an ongoing issue. While we hope that this behaviour will settle as your new family member settles into your home, Cat Haven does not take any responsibility for any subsequent conditions or issues that may develop in the future as a result of this condition.
