Cats in our Care

These cats and kittens have been rescued from various pounds and shelters by volunteer foster carers who provide the cat with a safe haven until they can be permanently rehomed. Cats are located throughout Sydney, Australia.

Please note that descriptions of breed, age and size are given in good faith and are based on assessment of the cat's features, together with veterinary opinion. We cannot guarantee the age and breed of any cats listed.

All cats listed come desexed, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.

Kittens will only be rehomed when over 8 weeks of age and over 1kg in weight.

TC

TC

Domestic Short Hair - male - 10 years and 9 months

TC really has proved to be a Top Cat! He is a really happy boy, with an easygoing personality. During his time in our care, he has lived amiably alongside multiple foster cats and dogs, and has loved being with his carer’s children. In fact, sleeping on their bed, or on the adult’s bed, was his favourite.

Since TC is friendly with just about anyone, it is a puzzle why he is still looking for his furever home. But, he was surrendered to the pound by his owner at the age of 6 years, when we took him into our care. Unfortunately, many older foster cats are often overlooked in favour of little kittens, and TC has been one of them. He had no problem adjusting to his new foster home, and continues to be a really healthy boy, but just hasn’t had many enquiries.

Now 10 years old, TC is of course fully trained and socialised, and needs less attention than little kitties. He is adaptable and sociable, so after a settling in period, he will provide love and snuggles to a new family, whether it be with children and other animals (although he’s not keen on mature boy cats), or a single or couple who, perhaps, need to leave him alone for large parts of the day.

During his time in foster care, TC has been an indoor/outdoor cat; he has roamed happily during the day, but is always sure to get back in the evening to choose who he will snuggle in bed with this time. His outdoor time just needs to be in environment which is safe for cats to ensure he lives to a ripe old age.

Unfortunately for TC, his carer can no longer look after him so he has recently moved into temporary care in our cattery. Once more, he has proved adaptable, now living an indoor only life with no complaints. But he is really missing his snuggly family life and is lonely. We are sure he would like nothing more than to finally find a permanent family home.

TC is desexed, microchipped and his vaccinations are all up to date.

If you feel you would like to share your life with this adorable boy, please contact us to arrange a meet and greet in his current Windsor foster home.

TC has been in foster care since 11 April 2015, for 4.8 years

Jayde

Jayde

DSH - male - 6 years

Jayde is a lovely boy who gets on really well with all cats and kittens and also loves to rub up against our large dogs and is very friendly with them. He would love to join a furever family with other cats and dogs, as well as his own humans, although since he's so friendly, any dog must be cat-friendly as Jayde wouldn't know to run away!

Jayde has a lovely white horseshoe marking across his rump, which may have given him some good luck when he made a full recovery from a paralysis tick bite as a kitten.

Although Jayde loves his foster family, it is certainly high time he found his very own family to share his love and affection. If you would like to visit Jayde at his foster home in Glenhaven, please call his carer, Jeni.

Jayde is microchipped and de-sexed, and vet requirements are all up to date.

Jayde's vet expenses for treatment of his tick bite came to $437. If you can help sponsor him please see details below.

**DCH would like to say Thank you to Natalia, Davy, Carolyn, Lisette and Hui for their generous donations towards Jayde's vet fees. His additional costs have now been fully covered.**

Jayde has been in foster care since 24 October 2015, for 4.2 years

Callie

Callie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 4 years

Fuss-free independent gal.

If Destiny’s Child was writing a song about a cat, Independent Woman would be Callie’s anthem - she likes things on her own terms. Happy lying around doing her own thing, Callie is a fuss-free cat looking for a peaceful home to keep her safe and warm.

With a shy personality, Callie has been overlooked for some time - it’s hard for her to make a first impression when she’s hide-and-seek champion of the house!

That said, Callie adores other cats and would love a home with feline company. She might not be the snuggliest when it comes to humans, but Callie loves to cuddle up to her kitty friends and purr the night away on the couch.

With the nature of an older soul, Callie could be a great companion for an older person who is looking for some company and not necessarily a needy lap cat. Preferring to lie about in a sunny spot watching the world go by, Callie is fuss-free and low maintenance.

Ready to move in ASAP, we’d love to hear from you if Callie could call your place home.

Located in Quakers Hill NSW.

Callie has been in foster care since 19 February 2016, for 3.9 years

Izzie

Izzie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 4 years

Izzie is a beautiful but independent cat. She is mostly white with beautiful brown and orange markings with a tint of black around one of her eyes which makes her look like she is wearing eyeliner.

Izzie loves a good scratch on the back and sides and is especially affectionate of a night time when your in bed. However she is mostly a solitary cat and spends most of the day asleep on her own. She does not like visitors or strange noises and will run and hide. She is in foster care with kids however she would prefer a home without kids or another animals. She typically comes out into the living rooms and interacts more once the kids are in bed and the house is quiet. She is generally a quite cat who sleeps a lot but she loves pats at night to help keep her warm.

She needs to be indoors only where she is the only cat and has an owner who can provide lots of love. She would take several weeks to adjust to a new home so she would need someone with patience and understanding.

Minnie Mum

Minnie Mum

DMH - female - 5 years and 2 months

Hi! I am Minnie Mum. I’m rather beautiful, with my lovely black fur being accessorised by my grey pants.

I was rescued by two humans and now reside with one of them. I’m told I’m easy to live with, but I would like a furever home soon.

I live inside at night but roam the back garden during the day and am happy to hang out to play and chase mice. I also share my foster home with a dog.

I‘m happy to be patted, but – like many cats – I am not keen on being picked up. My foster mum says I have some trust issues, so my new family may need to be patient, and give me some time to settle in.

I am de-sexed, micro chipped, vaccinated and wormed, and, of course, I am litter trained.

Lashes

Lashes

DSH - male - 4 years and 10 months

This is Lashes: his favourite pastime is food or sleeping. He loves to have long conversations with anyone who will listen.

He is not a fussy cat, and will eat anything that’s not bolted down! He loves to pinch the food off the dog who lives here - with whom he is best buddies. He loves kids, too, and particularly enjoys being patted by my grandchildren

Lashes would suit anyone who is willing to be patient and give him a go. He has beds, scratching poles and lots of places to sleep

Lashes is microchipped, de-sexed and vaccinations are up to date.

Camden

Camden

Domestic Short Hair - female - 4 years and 2 months

Camden has grown into a beautiful young adult with striking markings. Needing less attention now she is no longer a kitten, Camden may well fit in with a working person or couple, as easily as she could love an entire family.

Camden loves treats, and sleeping in her little pot with her baby beanie boo possum. She can be shy, but loves affection when she’s in the zone! She likes plenty of cuddles and loves to have a good belly rub, as well as playing, laying in the sun, and chasing things. Oh, and she has a great appetite.

Camden’s speciality is head butting and purring, and she really enjoys being with her human foster family. But, now she really would like to have her own family, so that in a short time this little girl can love you unconditionally.

Camden is already de-sexed, and is up to date on all her vet requirements.

If you’d like to arrange to meet Camden at her Narellan foster home, please contact her carer, Christine - on 0413 317 481.

Camden has been in foster care since 07 September 2016, for 3.3 years

Penny

Penny

dsh - female - 1 year and 10 months

Penny's personality is the most gentle I've ever come across in a kitty. Even after she'd been with us for only a short time, she purred very fast and very loudly when picked up. She is generally shy with new people though, so her furever family may have to give her a couple of weeks to settle, to allow her to gain the confidence that she's safe and loved. Penny does love playing with toys, and happily eats whatever cat food is on offer.

Although she doesn’t realise it herself, Penny walks with a very unusual gait. (See Video). After a thorough vet check-up, including x-rays, the vet has ruled out any problems with her bones and joints. Instead the vet thinks it may be neurological, and in any event, thankfully, it causes no pain and Penny is perfectly happy the way she is!

Penny does have strength in those back legs, as she loves to stand up on them so she can see what might be of interest up the bench - taking her full body weight. Fortunately, she hasn’t learnt yet to jump up on the furniture, but ,when she decides to chase her feline foster friends, Penny just launches herself straight at them from her sleeping position.

Penny has enjoyed being an indoor kitty to date, and because she doesn’t realise her legs won’t run fast enough to get away from dangerous situations, her new furever home must also be indoors. She does love her cat buddies, and is also living harmoniously with her carer’s large cat friendly dogs, so a family (be it large, a couple or a single person) with existing potential playmates may well find her a wonderful companion. Because Penny is very gentle, however, any animal friends should not play rough.

Penny is microchipped, and her vaccinations are up to date. Her adoption fee includes de-sexing.

If you would like to meet this special kitty at her foster home in Glenhaven , please call her carer Jeni to arrange a time.

Penny has been in foster care since 20 July 2018, for 1.5 years

Amber

Amber

Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 years

FOSTER CARERS URGENTLY NEEDED
Amber is in foster care with another cat, but a multitude of energetic dogs of all shapes and sizes! Unfortunately, she is therefore missing out on enough 'me' time to develop her social skills and come out of her shell. Currently, she is too shy and awkward to take any meet and greets with potential owners.
If you have the time and patience to help her blossom, we hope it will give her the chance at a furever home and you'll be fully supported as a DCH foster carer.
There is a further kitty of a similar age, Zac, also pictured, who is in the same situation.

Please contact Daphne on 0416 421 870 if you can take this pretty girl, Amber, or her room mate, into your care.

Amber has been in foster care since 11 December 2018, for 1.1 years

Sunday and Olly

Sunday and Olly

DSH - male - 1 year and 2 months

Available separately or as a pair. These siblings have been around people since they were born but have mostly lived outside with their mother. I have been working really hard to socialise them and they are coming along really well, however may need some extra time to adjust to spending much time indoors. They do come in and stay the night and are very affectionate now.

They use a litter tray, and mostly pretty good with that.

I would love to see them go to a loving home! They are such lovely natured little ones!

Sunday and Olly each come vaccinated, microchipped and desexed.
