INTEREST LIMIT HAS BEEN REACHED. WE WILL NO LONGER BE TAKING INTEREST FOR THEA AT THIS TIME
Thea is a clever and curious cat that started to explore her new foster home within minutes. Although, she is a bit shy at first, she quickly becomes ready for cuddles (on her terms, of course) and loves a good scratch behind her ears.
Her favourite pastimes are hiding behind the curtains to peer outside, sitting in the tub, pretending to be a Sphinx, and eating.
She is super playful when she wants to be and loves to run up and down the hallway and toss her toys into the air for a game of catch.
She is still a bit jumpy with loud noises or if she hears a dog barking in the distance or on TV, so I think her preference would be a quieter home where she is the queen. She loves to sleep at the foot of the bed, and likes to follow me around the house.
She has a sweet little meow, isn't very noisy, and doesn't make a mess at all. She does need to lose a bit of weight, and isn't a fan of dieting, but certainly is getting some exercise through play. She is a bit of a picky eater, but will reward you with extra cuddles when she gets a can of food, and is pretty clear about communicating what she likes best.
Thea must be an indoor cat so that she is protected from further sun damage.
Thea has 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 previous trauma. Our veterinarians have carefully assessed this chip and no further treatment is currently required.
Thea 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 she stays on a dental hygiene diet.
Thea has sustained long term sun damage to one or both ears, and in some cases the nose as well. This is quite a common issue in white cats that have previously spent time outdoors, and the consequences are similar to that of humans who spend too much time in the sun. Sun damage is dangerous because it can develop into skin cancer (specifically squamous cell carcinoma). In these cases, surgery to remove the affected skin will be required, this often involves amputation of the entire ear flap (pinna). Thea has been checked by the Cat Haven veterinarians who decided the changes are so mild that she does not need any treatment at this stage. We recommend that she is kept completely indoors and out of the sun to prevent progression of this condition. Cat Haven does not take any responsibility for any subsequent conditions or issues that may develop in the future as a result of this condition.
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!
