We can’t wait to hear from you!
My name is Sharkie and I'm about 2 years old. I was hanging around a depot at a local council but the workers thought I should have a better life so they took me to Cat Haven. I've been at my foster home for a few months but now I'm ready to go to my fur-ever home. I need a home where I can minimize my exposure to the sun so that my pink nose is protected from sun damage. If you think you can give me the time and love I need to become a confident cat, come meet me at my foster home in Innaloo, In the meantime, read an update from from foster mum:
"Sharkie came to me as a timid and scared little boy curled up in the corner of the room. However, over time he has blossomed into honestly the best cat you could ever wish for. He’s very affectionate and happiest when snuggled up under your arm or on your chest. If you stop stroking him he will paw your hand until you start again. His favourite past time is playing and no matter how many toys you buy him his favourite will always be the kitchen sink plug. He has a lot of swag and is very confident now, including with strangers. He would slot well into any family dynamic including those with kids and other cats, given the right introduction. He will no doubt be that missing puzzle piece for someone and he’s just waiting patiently until you come find him."
Sharkie 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.
Sharkie has a wobbly gait and other neurological signs consistent with Toxoplasma gondii infection. Blood work confirmed that Sharkie has a latent (not currently active but may develop in the future) infection. Toxoplasmosis is the disease syndrome caused by a protozoan organism called Toxoplasma gondii. Neurologic signs may include convulsions, mentation changes, hyperesthesia, ataxia (wobbly gait), limb weakness, and paralysis. Toxoplasmosis can cause ocular changes such as uveitis and glaucoma. Risk to Humans: Pregnant women and individuals with compromised immune systems (e.g. human immunodeficiency virus syndrome/AIDS) have the greatest risk of clinical disease. Please contact the Fostecare office if you would like a copy of this medical waiver or more information about his condition.
