Hi! My name is Millie and I’m a beautiful older cat. I am a sweet, gentle lady who was surrendered because my owner was unwell.
I love pats and am very affectionate!! I will constantly purr when you pat me as it makes me so happy! On the first day at my foster home, I was quite shy and just hid under the bed. I was also a little bit defensive when my foster carer tried to pat me. On about the third day, this all changed! I was out and about, exploring and wanting so many pats!
I enjoy sleeping right next to my foster carer all night now! I am very affectionate once I trust you. Sometimes I sleep in a very funny position... I put my head faced down into the blanket - my foster carer can show you photos.
I will be best in a quiet home preferably with no other animals although I have previously socialised with other cats so with a very slow gentle introduction I could perhaps live with other cats.
I promise to give you lots of love... please adopt me!
Millie has a condition known as congenital nystagmus. Congenital nystagmus is most common in Siamese, Himalayan, and Persian cats, but can also be present in white and albino cats. You will notice that both eyes move or bobble in the same direction, and that it may become more obvious or faster with changes of head position (like when they tilt their head). In most cases, this has no effect on her vision or ability to leave a normal and healthy life. Cat Haven recommends that Millie is kept completely indoors for her own safety.
Millie also has a heart murmur. The murmur has been assessed by Cat Haven veterinary staff as mild (grade three or less) and not likely to cause any adverse effects on her health. It is still advised that you have your primary care veterinarian monitor the heart murmur each time she has her annual health check. If you would like to discuss this further with one of Cat Haven’s veterinarians please ask one of our grounds staff to assist you in booking a consultation.
Millie has been diagnosed with obesity and it is imperative that you continue to reduce her weight with the advice provided by the Cat Haven, in conjunction with ongoing monitoring and care with your primary care veterinarian.
Millie has mild dental tartar and associated gum changes. This is very common in mature cats. Millie has also been noted to have a small chip in her tooth that was present when she came to the shelter. This is likely due to a a previous trauma. Our veterinarians have carefully assessed this chip and no further treatment is currently required.
Cat Haven does not take any responsibility for any subsequent conditions or issues that may develop in the future as a result of these medical and dental conditions.
To meet me in foster care please contact our foster care department on:
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!
