Hello humans I'm big boy Kosta with lots of love to give you when I feel like it.

I'm a bit scared and timid so would love a grown up household where I can appear like a magician in rooms so I can explore. Oh and because I've been allowed to roam around and so what I want I'll be watching the exits and probably howl at the window for a few days because I want freedom but please ignore it because I've realised there's a big scary world out there for a handsome fella like me so indoors is safe for me now. Plus I should be an indoors cat anyway so that I'm protected from the sun.

Sometimes I just like to retreat in my personal space and be left alone so don't expect me to come out and sit on the couch with you yet. Some days I feel brave and it's ok for you to pick me up, have a cuddle and you can scratch me on the head and stroke me.

Oh and did I tell you I'm super smart too? Because I talk to you and will tell you when I'm in the mood for food, play or cuddles otherwise I may swipe and bite you gently to say no way not today! I'm okay with other cats but will need a very slow managed introduction.

My foster mum says I have LOTS of potential with the right humans who can teach me that it's safe and I have a loving home because I haven't had that before. Could that home be yours? I would prefer one with no young children. If you think you can give me the home I deserve, come meet me in my new foster home in Yokine.

Kosta has a condition called epiphora, sometimes known as blocked tear ducts. Blocked tear ducts can cause the under or over production of tears, and can predispose the cat to eye infections. Therefore he may require intermittent treatment throughout his life.

Kosta has been noted to have a small chip in his tooth that was present when he came to the shelter. Our veterinarians have carefully assessed this chip and no further treatment is currently required. He has also 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 your new cat’s dental health. Ask the cat welfare officer who is assisting you for a dental hygiene handout. We have recommended that he stays on a dental hygiene diet.

Kosta has a skin condition which has caused severe hair loss and itching in the past. There are a number of different things that can cause this condition, and it can be difficult to determine the underlying cause without specialists testing and trials. It is not known what causes hiss skin reaction, therefore it is important that you use a variety of preventative measures. Allergic skin conditions can recur throughout an animal’s lifetime and continued treatment/ intermittent medication may be required. If you notice a flare up in your cats condition such as hair loss, excessive licking/ scratching/ skin lesions please take him to your primary care veterinarian, and request a referral for dermatology if the problem is persistent. Cat Haven is not liable for these costs.

Cat Haven does not take any responsibility for any subsequent conditions or issues that may develop in the future as a result of these conditions.
