Want to adopt me?To meet me in foster care please contact our foster care department on:
Phone:(08) 9442 3600
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 Everyone! I’m Tiger - I'm only 2 years old but have had a pretty rough start to life. I came to Cat Haven after being found homeless. When I was at the shelter the vets discovered that I had a problem with my hip so after my operation I went to a foster home to recuperate. The vets did a great job at fixing my hip and now I'm raring to find my forever home.
I’m super confident, curious and won’t take long settling into my new home. I hope your couch has a spot for me because I’d love to sit beside you, but please don’t pick me up. I love snuggles and scratches under the chin.
I spend most of the day indoors laying in the sun and playing with my foster family’s bunny! We’re great friends, even if he tries to hog the limelight when I'm having my photo taken!
Loud noises and little ones spook me, so I would prefer a home with adults that are often home as I cry when I get lonely and I have a very loud voice. I will benefit from having someone willing to spend time with me and playing enrichment games to keep me entertained.
The lovely person who found me did mention that I get a little worried when there are other cats around. As I need to limit my exposure to stressful situations maybe being your only feline would suit me best.
I look forward to meeting you at my foster home in Spearwood!
Tiger has had a surgery called a Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO), which is a surgical procedure that aims to restore pain-free mobility to a diseased or damaged hip, by removing the head and neck of the femur. Most cats recover fully after FHO surgery and regain essentially-normal function of the affected leg. Although the leg may have a slightly decreased range of motion or decreased limb length after surgery, these impacts are typically minimal and do not impact the cat’s quality of life. To aid the continued good response to surgery it is important that he be fed a good quality diet and is not allowed to become overweight.
Tiger also has previously had an episode of lower urinary tract disease, a condition which may result in urinary obstruction. Limiting stress is essential for these cats so stress management will be important after adoption - consider feliway, etc to prevent urinary issues flaring. Tiger has had good results while on the Royal Canin diet.
