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 Calypso and I'm a beautiful, shy 18 month old girl looking for my forever home. I was adopted a few months ago but sadly returned. My previous owners say that I'm shy with new people but do warm up and love a good pat! I haven't lived with other animals but with a slow introduction I possibly could. Please don't overlook me because I'm shy - I'm a superstar waiting to shine!
My foster mum is really pleased to report that I’m starting to come out of my shell and I’m becoming so much more affectionate - I love pats late at night before you go to bed and early in the morning, but I can still get spooked, so you’ll need to have patience with me.
My favourite hobbies include playing with my ball, chilling, hanging out and did I mention playing with my ball cause, I really love that. I like to sleep during the day but I’ll let you know when I’m ready to be patted. When you do I like being patted on the head, scratches under the chin, down my back and if you’re lucky I’ll lay on my back for you to pat my tummy. And when you’re doing this right, I’m loving life and I’ll show you my purring appreciation.
My foster mum was told I have a little problem with ‘inappropriate peeing’ which isn’t fair as I’ve only missed the litter tray a couple of times since I’ve been at her place but that was because she was using my bathroom, so I was too scared to go in.
I’m looking for a forever family that will be able to give me lots of love and help show me that the world isn’t so scary after all. You can meet me in my foster home in West Leederville.
Calypso has displayed some evidence of toileting inappropriately, such as toileting on the bedding or outside the litter tray. The urine has been checked to rule out medical concerns, and it is likely that this behaviour is associated with stress and/or anxiety.
