An unlikely duo, Digga and Gizmo have overcome a lot in their lives already - and now they are hoping that someone will give them a place they can both call their furrever home! The boys really love each other, and while they sometimes play rough it's all pretty standard teenage boy fights and they just need a stern talking to before they are cuddled up and grooming each other again. Gizmo has just turned one year old. Can you give him the best birthday present ever?
Digga: The ultimate C.A.T. that will dig his way into your heart
Mr Diggy has come so far, but still needs a special family to help him feel safe. He can get scared quite easily and his first reaction is to hiss but he’s really just all talk and just needs patience and kindness. He had a rough start to life and is slowly learning how to trust humans, figuring out that pats feel good and that there is no need to run away from people. Digs is more of a companion for Gizmo rather than a companion for people but he is polite and keeps to himself and in time will become more comfortable in a new household as long as he has his best friend Giz by his side.
Gizmo the Gremlin
Gizmo had a shaky start to life, but has come out of his shell and is now such an adorable gremlin. He loves FOOODDD, and cannot be trusted to leave you alone if there is any food around! He likes to scream at you to feed him, but when he's full up he will sleep with you in bed. He is the sweetest little bundle of joy and he loves a good tummy rub. Little Grem is petrified of strangers, so will need lots of patience and space to be comfortable at first. Once he realises he's safe though, he will annoy you all the time for love (even at 5am)!
They will need a home with no young children as they don’t like loud noises and Digga is still learning to not hiss. Strictly no dogs, and as the boys are so close they probably wouldn’t need any other felines either. They must be indoor cats so that their pale feature are protected from sun damage.
Please consider adopting this adorable and unlikely pair. Their foster home is in Yokine. See more photos on Instagram.
Digga has previously had an episode of lower urinary tract disease, a condition which resulted in urinary obstruction. Cat Haven recommends regular veterinary check ups for your pet. In addition, limiting stress is essential for these cats. Digga 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 his health. 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.
Gizmo has presented with a mild case of gingivitis. Dental hygiene may help prevent its development. There are several measures you can take to improve your new cat’s dental health. Ask the cat welfare officer who is assisting you for a dental hygiene handout. We have recommended that Gizmo stays on a dental hygiene diet.

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!
