Hihi! My name's Missy! I’m an independent, pretty, little girl looking for a forever home with someone patient and understanding.
I’ve come a long way since I was surrendered, I was very scared, in pain and angry to anyone who tried to help. Upon being surrendered my tail was badly injured so the friendly vets at Cat Haven amputated it and I’m now pain free and just as cruisy without it! With patience, a quiet home and routine I’m feeling so much better and have so much love to give!
I love snoozing and having my own space (I’m not a lap cat, and will come to you when I’m ready) I’m also a bit of a scaredy cat with noises so would loveee a quieter household with people to keep me company (when I want of course). As I’m still learning to trust people, at first I may come across as quiet, shy, or a little angry, please just give me time to shine. Im a little bit more comfortable and affectionate to my foster mum, so I think a male only household might be a bit daunting at first. As I currently live in a foster house without kids or dogs, and am quite content being the centre of attention, I’m not sure how I’ll go with young kids or other pets.
Sometimes I get scared and defensive and give little, love bites, but I promise I don’t mean it. I'm just trying to be that independent woman I know I am! I’m playful and cheeky and love just a little bit of rope to pounce on every now and again. I’m intrigued by the outdoors but my pink nose and ears would hate me for it - I need to take care to avoid sun damage. An indoor home with a cosy couch, sunshine and a fluffy blanket would be just delightful.
I don’t like car travel and get motion sickness so would much prefer a home close to my foster parents so I am not under too much stress when I move houses. 30mins max would be my limit in a car so please take this into consideration!
I love morning cuddles and chin scratches from my foster parents in bed and hope to find people who are very patient and give me time to come out of my shell, and love me just as much as they do.
Come find me in Craigie, I'd love to meet you! See more photos here.
Missy has presented with a mild case of gingivitis which is an inflammation of the gums. Dental hygiene may help prevent its development. There are several measures you can take to improve a cat's dental health. Ask the cat welfare officer who is assisting you for a dental hygiene handout. We have recommended that Missy stays on a dental hygiene diet.
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!
