Meet Kenya

My name is Kenya, however I prefer 'Kenny' or 'Ken'.

I don't have a sad story behind why I am a shy and timid man. That's just my personality, it takes me time to like and trust you.

I was born in care to a lovely mamma cat (my mum Calli who now lives in a forever home) and have resided with two very lovely cat foster carers from DCH. I came to my current foster care at 2 weeks of age with my mum Calli and sister Kokoda, they have both had forever homes for ages now.

I live with a heap of other cats my foster mum is a crazy foster cat lady. I can't keep up sometimes, but I'm always friendly once I know all the other fur fosters. I've even help foster mum out with the tiny orphan by bathing them and role modeling appropriate big cat behaviour.

I still enjoy playing with toys especially if you play with me. I like to cuddle on the lounge with my foster mum and don't mind being picked up, although, I am quite heavy. My foster mum says I could do losing a kilo or two. I LOVE food, human food included.

I don't mind small humans as long as they have a toy and play with me, but I won’t go out of my way to hang out with them. I have never been outside, foster mum would prefer you keep me safe indoors but that is completely up to you once we get to know each other better.

I feel it's has to be my time to meet my loving forever home and humans. When you come to meet me I won't come up and give you a cuddle or pay any attention to you, I will hide. That doesn't mean I don't want to be a part of your family, I'm just being cautious.

Foster mum says cause I'm a scaredy cat I can come for a trial at your house (crossing my paws it's my forever home), and introducing me to one room at a time will help me settle in quickly. Like I said before, I LOVE food so if you give me some treats, we will become friends in no time.

I have seen so many foster siblings come and go and never had anyone show any interest in me, all I want is a family to love me forever. I’m really looking forward to my transition to a forever home. You will not be disappointed once you know me!!!
