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!
My name is Rumpus but my foster mum calls me Rumpi. I spent the first few months of my life on the streets with my cat family only observing humans from afar, so when I came to live with my foster family, I wasn’t used to being in such close proximity to humans and was very frightened and flighty. However, over the past few weeks, I’ve made amazing progress as I’ve realised that domestic life is quite pleasant, and humans aren’t so scary either.
While I might be flighty when you first meet me, I am actually a very curious and playful kitten, and it won’t be long until I’m poking my head into your room and following you around the house to see what you’re doing. I bring lots of amusement to my foster mummy and if you give me toys, I can entertain myself (and you) for hours.
I will need a patient family who understands that I’m very new to sharing a home with humans and will instinctively flee if you try to grab me, but don’t worry. I’m getting over my phobia of hands and I’m learning that pats feel nice, but prefer to be the one to approach. I will also need a home where I can minimise my exposure to the sun.
The transition from the streets to a house was made much smoother by the resident cats in my foster home, who showed me that domestic cat life can be peaceful and fun. I light up when I’m around cat friends, and can get upset when I’m alone, so I will be well suited to a house with a furry feline who is looking for a new best friend.
You can meet me in my foster home in Floreat.
