HEY ARNOLD! *cue theme music*
Hi folks, I'm Arnold, also known as Curiosity Rover (I like to explore) or Little Dope (when I try to eat my foster mum's plants). While I don't have a football head, I'm still a beautiful young boy who, once settled, loves to scout my surroundings—I will sniff (and attempt to eat) almost everything.
I love to play with anything that moves, but ping pong balls are my favourite. I will happily chase them around the house for hours! I'm quite conscientious, as I restrict my zoomies to the evening when my foster mum can watch. Sudden movements give me a fright, and although it's taken a while, I have realised that pats and scritches are a thing of delight! I turn into a little purr monster.
I need to be adopted to a single-cat household and stay indoors or confined to a sheltered cat enclosure due to my FCoV (see below).
I'm just 8 months old and am ready to find my forever home. Come meet me at my foster home in Balga.
Arnold is suspected of having a condition called Juvenile Gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums which is painful, and can lead to infections and more severe dental disease. Many cats will grow out of this issue before approximately 2 years of age, however some will have the condition for life.
Arnold has been exposed to Feline Coronovirus (FCoV) and has positive titres for this virus. Due to the virus being highly contagious, to limit the spread it is important that he remains in a single-cat household, and should be kept indoors. It is important to note that Feline Coronavirus is NOT the same as the human Coronavirus. This virus has been prevalent within cats for many decades and is NOT transmissible to humans.
Arnold has been treated for ringworm by the Cat Haven shelter and veterinary team. After several weeks of medical therapy, we have assessed him and determined that the ringworm lesions are resolved and that he has recovered from this disease.
