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!
Hey there, my name is Saren, I'm about 6 years old and was found as a stray. I know my fur is black and white, but let me tell you I am one colourful bag of candy.
I'm a bit of a cool cat, a kind of rebel, definitely too cool for any other animals of the house. I pretend I'm not all that interested in you but deep down, I just love the attention. I like to rest my chin on you whilst I nap, and head but you to get your attention. I love being picked up and cuddled too, but only when I want it, and I have a big purr which I show off whenever I'm content. I'm partially blind in one eye, which matches my croaky pirate meow, which I like to let out as I wait for that tasty food, once it's on the floor though, stand back! Because I throw my face into it and get it all down my chest.
I am happier in a calm household, but I can manage a bit of foot traffic so long as there are no boots on those feet! Boots are guaranteed to be hissed at.
Other fur friends are okay, I am currently living with a dog at my foster home, who I'm happy to sniff and walk past when he is being calm, if he moves too quickly though I'll remind him who's the real boss of the house. I am also living with another foster cat, who I bullied at first, but now we, let's say; co-exist. We're still not friends, I'm more into the ones who give me pats to be honest!
I really am ready to have a place to call home. If you have a warm lap and space for a quirky guy like me, come and meet me in my foster home in Wanneroo.
Health IssuesSaren has an eye condition called anterior synechiae. This is an attachment of the iris to the cornea which can result from trauma. We suspect it was caused from a penetrating injury to the left eye, and likely the claw from another cat during a fight. The lens in this eye has also developed some opacity and was likely caused by the same trauma that caused the anterior synechiae. The eye has been assessed by a Cat Haven veterinarian and does not appear to be painful. Although we do not anticipate any problems in the future, in some instances where the lens has been damaged such as in Saren's case, it can rupture later in life and result in the affected eye needing removal/enucleation. Cat Haven cannot guarantee that in Saren's case this will not happen. If you would like to discuss this further with one of the Cat Haven veterinarians, please ask one of our grounds staff to assist you.
Saren 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.
