Purrsonality Traits

Mr Squeaky (because he has cute squeaky meows) is an awesome little 1 year old cat. I'm convinced that the first person who comes to meet him will want to adopt him on the spot!

The very first time I met him with the Cat Haven foster team, he climbed straight up onto my shoulders without hesitation, then hung out purring in my arms and that set the tone for the whole time I've been fostering him (about 6 weeks). 
He is the most friendly, trusting, happy little cat I've looked after so far. He loves people. If my friends / neighbours / delivery guy come up to the front door he sprints over wanting to say hi to them. He even purrs when he's at the vet which is pretty uncommon.
He will love hanging out with you. He'll follow you round the house, want to see what you're doing when you're washing the dishes, cooking, will check to make sure the water isn't hurting you in the shower etc. He also loves pats and being picked up and purrs straight away if you're holding him. He loves food and is very food motivated, so if he is ever being distracting and needs a bit of time out, he'll happily put himself there if you put a little bit of food in his bowl - I've never seen a cat run so fast when he knows food is coming.
Squeaky loves playing with toys, and he will like it a lot if you can play with him, but he is also pretty good at entertaining himself too if you leave toys out for him. He particularly likes playing soccer and batting balls around the floor, and diving over / hunting stuff in and around cat tunnels, or jumping for toys on string. He also thinks it's really fun to pull magnets off the fridge...!
In terms of appearance, his coat looks black in photos, but in the light it's actually more like a black with reddish undertones and some random strands of white. He has little white patches on his chest and stomach, and one white toe. He's quite small, apparently before the Cat Haven he was getting beaten up on the street and so he was probably quite undernourished. He is about twice as big now as when I got him, so it seems like he probably doesn't have much growing left to do.
His eyes are brown, but they have a blueish tinge and are cloudy. Unfortunately he was quite sick when he came into the Cat Haven, and the vet thinks he might have had some ulceration in his eyes which has left scarring. He also has some genetic eye issues and the vet thinks he probably doesn't have much vision overall. It doesn't stop him getting around at all, just occasionally if I throw a toy far away he'll have trouble seeing it and he has trouble seeing small things like a piece of food on the floor. I think because of his eye issues he should be kept inside, rather than being let out to run around the street. I think he would probably like an outdoor enclosed space that he couldn't escape from but could run around in though.
Usually he sleeps in the laundry where his bed is. I've tried letting him stay out in the house at night, but because he loves people and company so much, when you're lying down he tends to get in your face, which makes sleeping hard :D
He's not much of a lap cat, he will sometimes want to come up but he's quite fidgety. If you want him to sit still you have to hug him, and then you will get a few minutes of pats and purrs before he wants to go do something else, before coming back for more later. I think as he gets a bit older (he's only around one year old at the moment) he will probably become more and more of a lap cat.
If Mr Squeaky sounds like the cat for you, please organise a time with me to come and meet him in Kalamunda. He'll definitely give you a warm welcome!

Health Issues

Mr Squeaky 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 well-being long term. These include being an inside only cat; slow and careful introduction to other cats; and annual vaccinations and health checks.
