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 I'm Monty and I'm a cool fella looking for a purr-manent new home. I came to Cat Haven as a stray so no-one knows my history but they think I'm about 4 and a half years old. You can meet me at my foster home in Leeming.
Please read what my foster carer wrote about me:
"After 4 months Monty has started to become more friendly. I can now pat him, and he has stopped hiding behind the couch all day. He sits on my lap for a few minutes and loves scratches around his head.
He can still be quite nervous if I come into the laundry and he is eating, he will fly out the door. Also he will not let me pick him up off the floor, he hates me putting out 2 hands to pick him up. He will only jump onto my lap if I’m sitting down , I’m not allowed to pick him up or pat him with 2 hands ( only 1 hand allowed).
Apart from Monty still being a bit nervous, he has come a long way in the last 3 weeks. He has a lovely nature, not nasty, loves a head rub, eats well and uses his kitty litter."
Monty has a condition called epiphora, sometimes known as blocked tear ducts. He also has a skin condition called Feline Acne or Chin Acne. It is not known what causes his skin reaction, though it is usually mild and manageable.
Monty 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.
