Penny

Penny

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 years and 1 month

Penny is a very special lady. She came into our care around 10 months ago when found abandoned in a cage together with her tiny babies. A great mum to her own kittens, Ivy and Rosebud, she took up the challenge her carer offered – to feed and nurture 7 other stray kittens at the same time!

After this heroic effort, and with all 9 kittens fully grown, we feel it’s time for this lovely kitty to be rewarded with being thoroughly spoilt by her own furever family.

Penny is a pretty grey tortoiseshell, and still playful and inquisitive. She has proven to be a sweet and affectionate feline companion who loves spending time with her human family. Of course, she has had plenty of experience living with kittens, and another cat, but has also very happily lived alongside a dog in her foster home.

Now nearly 3 years old, Penny doesn’t require constant attention – just to be loved - so is likely to fit in with most family circumstances. She has been an indoor-only cat since she has been in our care and would prefer to stay so given her previous experience of the outdoors.

Penny is microchipped, vaccinated and de-sexed. If you would like to visit Penny in her foster home located near Windsor, please contact her carer, Debbie, on 0405 144 415.

Penny has been in foster care since 29 August 2018, for 10 months

Alina

Alina

Domestic Short Hair - female - 6 years and 8 months

Alina is such an amazing cat! She came into our care with, and reared, 6 beautiful kittens at the end of 2013, each being very quickly adopted. She, however, kept always on her own, never came inside and didnt want anything to do with her carers during the first 2 years she was here.

Then, all of a sudden, she became a different cat: she now sleeps inside on the bed every night, will sit on the lounge with you and watch TV, and is generally interested in whats going on.

She clearly decided she no longer had to behave like a mum, and could finally luxuriate in spoiling herself. We hope that after her years in care, she can find her a home of her very own.

She isn't very fussed with other cats as long as they don't come into her personal space bubble.

If you think you can offer this lovely girl a home please contact us!

Alina has been in foster care since 16 November 2013, for 5.7 years

TC

TC

Domestic Short Hair - male - 10 years and 3 months

TC was surrendered to the pound after his owner couldn't keep him anymore. He had no problem adjusting to a new foster home – and has proven to be a really happy cat, with an easy personality. He would really just like to find his own furever home.

TC lives happily alongside other cats, and loves being with his foster carer’s children. In fact TC is friendly with just about anyone.

TC is an indoor/outdoor cat; he roams happily during the day, but is sure to get back in the evening to choose who he will snuggle in bed with this time…

With his personality, and as an older cat who can entertain himself during the day, TC would be suited to almost any type of home with some access to the outside.

If you would like to meet TC at his Windsor foster home, please call his carer, Kelly, on 0430 580 466.

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

TC has been in foster care since 11 April 2015, for 4.3 years

Jayde

Jayde

DSH - male - 5 years and 6 months

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 3.7 years

Izzie

Izzie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 years and 6 months

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.

Located in Quakers Hill NSW.

Izzie has been in foster care since 19 February 2016, for 3.4 years

Callie

Callie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 years and 6 months

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 3.4 years

Sooty

Sooty

DSH - male - 4 years and 4 months

Hi. I am the beautiful pure black boy, Sooty! I was born, along with my brother Lashes at my foster mum’s home.

I live inside at night but roam the back garden during the day where I love to go on adventures. I am a great mouser and also find moths and lizards very interesting to play with, although I’m not sure they are so keen….
I particularly enjoy being with my foster mum’s grandchildren, who give me lots of pats, and I get on very well with my canine companion. Oh, and the other foster cats and kitties.
I can be a little shy when I meet new people, but I am a fun guy once you get to know me. I’m told I would fit in well with any family, and I’d love to return your care with lots of love.

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

Minnie Mum

Minnie Mum

DMH - female - 4 years and 8 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 4 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 - 3 years and 8 months

Abandoned and rescued as a shy one year old, 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 2.8 years
