Pursonality TraitsHi, my name is Shirley. I can get a bit stressed at times so I need a quiet home with no young children (and possibly other pets).
I've been in foster care for a few months sorting out some health issues but now the vets have given me the all-clear and it's time for me to find my forever home. If you have love to spare for an older girl like me, please come visit me in my foster home in Hamilton Hill.
Health IssuesShirley 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. If you would like to discuss this further with one of Cat Haven’s veterinarians please ask one of our grounds staff to assist you in booking a consultation.
Shirley has presented with a mild case of gingivitis, which is an inflammation of the gums. Dental hygiene may help prevent its development. There are several measures you can take to improve your new cat’s dental health. Ask the cat welfare officer who is assisting you for a dental hygiene handout.
Shirley 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. Allergic skin conditions can recur throughout an animal’s lifetime and continued treatment/ intermittent medication may be required. Cat Haven is not liable for these costs. Cat Haven does not take any responsibility for any subsequent conditions or issues that may develop in the future as a result of these conditions.
