Hello! My name is Bastian. This indoor life without my colony friends is pretty new to me and I am finding it a bit overwhelming. I am looking for that special caring person with patience and willingness to work with me. I really like other cats and hope you have a nice one who will be my best friend. Foster Notes: Bastian is a timid, gentle sweetheart who came into foster care at approximately age 8 months. He needs an adopter willing to be a cat whisperer* and give him both time & patience. Bastian will most likely hide in his new home , like he did in his foster home, while he gets acclimatized, so he should start out in a single room where he won't get overwhelmed. Just sitting quietly in his room with him and slowly engaging him over time will help him learn to trust you. Once you are able to pet him, he will melt under your touch, it is catching him to do so that is the challenge! Bastian was very vocal and meowed quite a bit, both day and night, for the first 2 weeks as he got used to his new foster home. As he will likely also do so in his adoptive home, tolerance & a detached home would be best so as not to disturb the neighbours. Bastian is very interested in the resident cats and is submissive to them. A friendly, non-dominant, well socialized cat is highly recommended to help him learn the ropes and gain confidence. He enjoys his canned food and is now coming at mealtimes along with the other cats. He has good litterbox habits.

 

*Cat Whisperer Needed: Bastian is a work in progress. He will likely take longer than most cats who have had the benefit of early socialization to feel confident and comfortable in his new home. It may take weeks or months but the reward of saving a sweet cat like Bastian from the harshness & dangers of outdoor life is so worth the effort and time.

 

ADOPTION FEE: The adoption fee is $165.00 (which includes a health check, first vaccination in a series and any that become due while in care, first anti-parasite treatments needed in care, spay or neuter and microchip at our Veterinary partner). There is a 10% discount when you adopt 2 cats/kittens. The adopter will be responsible for any vaccine or boosters, anti-parasite treatments that are needed after adoption. Kittens usually need 3 vaccines, one month apart starting at age 7 weeks. Juveniles and Adult cats usually require 2 vaccines one month apart in the first year, then annual vaccines. Deworming is recommended at the time of each vaccine appointment. If you are intending to adopt, please be aware that your Veterinary clinic may be experiencing backlogs in scheduling appointments, so do not delay calling your clinic to book your new cat's needed booster appointment(s). Please note that cats are not tested for FIV/FeLV nor can FIP be predicted. We will share any medical information gathered during our health checks and observations revealed during their time in care. But it is important to know that some illnesses can have an incubation period of 10 days, which means that a cat can leave in good health but get sick a few days post adoption. In addition, the stress of a new environment can affect a cats’ immune system.
