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 there! My name is Boulder. Don't let my name and my rough looks fool you because I'm a huge softie. I’ve spent the last little while on the streets - and have the scars to show it - but I *love* people and am a huge sucker for head rubs. It takes me a little while to get used to my surroundings, and I like to have a safe place to retreat to if I get overwhelmed, but I'm trying really hard to be brave and getting better every day.
All I really want to do though is hang out with you for a snooze, and maybe sneak in some brushes and head bumps while I'm there. I'll happily follow you from room to room if that's what it takes. I'm an excellent conversationalist too! I'll say hello every time you come into the room and chat away to let you know how happy I am to see you. Being a boy from the streets, I'm FIV positive. This and my light colouring means I must be kept indoors only... But it's much softer and nicer inside anyway!
The vets think I might also be a feline flu carrier - while this doesn't affect me very much day to day, I might pass it on to other cats so it's best for me to be your one and only. I'm a friendly boy, though, and do get on well with my foster sister.
Please come meet me at my foster home in Palmyra.
Boulder 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.
