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, my name is Jerry and I'm a very handsome four-year-old boy. After fending for myself for too long I am now hoping to find a patient family that will give me plenty of time to come out of my shell and teach my all about that house-cat life.
I was very shy when I first came to my foster home and tried to hide in very strange places. However, now I'm much more sociable and I just love being patted and adore a chin scratch. I will approach my foster mother for a pat, something I would not do at first. I even let her pick me up and cuddle me now, although just for a short time.
I'm a serious seeker of hiding places. See me under the duvet of my foster mum's bed! This is what she recently wrote about me:
...he puts a paw into his water bowl before he drinks
...he can open sliding doors and hide in cupboards
...he doesn't like closed doors
...he wanders around the house miaowing in the VERY early morning
...last night was the first time I'd seen him play with a toy
...he likes to jump up on high cupboards and windowsills
...he knows what a cat flap is for (although mine is locked shut...he tries to butt his head against it to get out)
...when he's lying on his blanket and you pat him, he kneads furiously
My cat does none of these things, except playing with toys. It makes for an interesting life!!!
I would make a lovely fur-ever friend for someone who will keep me indoors...my pink ears and nose would get very sunburned but also because of my FIV status! My foster home is in Scarborough.
Jerry has mild dental tartar and associated gum changes. This is very common in mature cats.
Jerry 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.
