Ziggy & Casper

Ziggy & Casper

DSH - mixed - 10 months and 3 weeks

Ziggy and Casper are very pretty young cats. They are pure white except for a grey slash on the top of their head.

Ziggy loves life and is always looking for a game to play. She is very affectionate but gets scared when someone new comes around. She has settled very well into her foster home and gets on well with everyone else in the house, cats and people.

Casper is a little bit scared when someone new comes around but when he is left to himself, he enjoys climbing in a lap for a purring cuddle. Casper gets a little bit anxious when he cannot see his siblings and therefore would be better finding a home with Ziggy

They are microchipped, vaccinated and desexed.

Ziggy & Casper has been in foster care since 21 July 2019, for 7 months

Mr Leo

Mr Leo

DSH - male - 1 year and 5 months

Mr Leo, who seems to think he is the centre of attention for his human’s world, is as soft as a brush both inside and out!

This tabby boy has a beautiful nature and clearly needs lots of love, accompanied by as many belly rubs as you can manage.

Since Mr Leo likes to have your full attention so he can shower you with affection, he would be ideally suited to a family with plenty of time and love to spare. Fortunately, he prefers to be an indoor/outdoor cat, so he can entertain himself in need.

Now age 15 months, I hoped he would have been snapped up a long time ago. I feel it is important for him to find a family who will nurture him for the rest of his life, as - of course - he deserves.

Please contact me if you would like more information or to visit Mr Leo at his Hornsby home.

Mr Leo is microchipped, vaccinated and desexed. I am asking only for a donation to the cost of his desexing operation as an adoption fee.

Morgan

Morgan

Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 years and 1 month

Morgan came into DCH care from an Animal Hospital, where she had been treated for a very badly injured leg perhaps due to being run over. To save her life, the vets amputated one of her legs and she also lost a toe on another foot.

The Hospital cared for her wonderfully during her 2 month recovery and also looked for her owner. But, with no microchip and no one coming forward to claim her, she is now looking for a loving furever home.

Morgan is around 2 year's old now, and a beautiful black and white girl. During her time with us, Morgan has proved to be inquisitive, very friendly and she loves attention. She will be a wonderful and affectionate companion.

Morgan seems not to notice anything different now she has recovered, and gets around with no trouble. With a back leg missing, she will however really appreciate lots of ear and neck scratches now she can’t reach; of course, she must be an indoor pussy cat.

Morgan’s injury requires no on-going care at all – she just wants a home with her own human(s) to shower her with plenty of love and cuddles in return for her own.

Morgan is microchipped, vaccinated an de-sexed.
If you wish to offer Morgan a loving home, please email her carer to arrange to meet her in her Homebush foster home.

Morgan has been in foster care since 22 September 2019, for 5 months

Juliet

Juliet

DMH - female - 3 years

"O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?" ...is what Juliet is thinking as she wistfully gazes out the window of her foster carer's home.

Born on Valentine's Day, Juliet is a charming young lady, who is soon coming up to her 3rd birthday.

She is a super fluffy lady who adores attention from adults, regularly being brushed and regular neck scratches and pats.
While she has been in foster carer with several other cats and kittens, she periodically bats away any kitten who tries to entice her to play. She's a regal lady, this Juliet! For this reason, she would suit being the only cat in her new home, or sharing with an older cat who isn't interested in playing together.

She is confident, and knows what she wants... And that's regular love and affection from her humans, on her terms. She often flops down near you and rolls around exposing her fluffy tummy. She also loves sitting by (or on!) your feet, and would love to have the option of sleeping on your bed at night.

She isn't a fan of being picked up, or having her nails trimmed, but absolutely LOVES neck scratches and will regularly come up to you with a head butt.

Juliet has proven herself to be safe with dogs, as she confidently lies near them. Its almost as if she views canines as her royal subjects, and watches them to observe them.

While Juliet adored the children at her previous home before being surrended to DCH, we recommend no children under 5yrs old. She did use to follow the children around at her previous home, sleeping on their beds at night and sitting by them as they had their baths, but otherwise Juliet appreciates her space, and prefers to spend her days being adored and loved by adults.

Juliet doesn’t demand a lot of attention, and is used to keeping herself company throughout the day, so will suit full time workers who enjoy being around cats, without them being ‘in your face’.

If you would like to meet this pretty girl at her foster home in Lithgow, please contact her carer via email.

Juliet is microchipped, desexed and fully up to date with her vaccinations, flea and worming treatments. She is also lifetime registered with council (saving her new owners $53!).

Juliet has been in foster care since 10 October 2019, for 4 months

Ned

Ned

DSH - male - 4 months and 3 weeks

Ned and his 4 x siblings (Nigel, Noah, Nora & Nala), are DCH rescue kittens from Campbelltown Pound, where they were handed in without a mumcat.

These kittens should always be kept Indoors in their future homes, unless they are safely supervised outside.

These gorgeous kittens are very people friendly and confident, and just seem to crave love and attention. All 5 x kittens are healthy and playful and get on well with my other DCH foster kittens. All are drinking water and eating wet and dry kitten food, with good appetites.

Ned is the big boy of the litter but he is actually the big cuddly sook who purrs when you look at him. Ned comes running for a cuddle whenever he sees you and is beautifully affectionate! A typical lap cat in-the-making with both confidence and personality, Ned has also become good friends with our 2 big Golden Retrievers!

As Ned has apparently now bonded with Nora in-store, they need to be adopted together. My apologies to those that wanted to adopt Ned separately.

The $200 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and Ned has also been desexed

Ned is now in-store at PETSTOCK Macquarie Centre, so just stop by to meet him!

You must be over 18yrs old and an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident to adopt from DCH

Nora is the gorgeous Torti girl of the litter and full of playful energy. She loves playing with the other kittens or chasing a toy around by herself. She always seems to be in the middle of the action but Nora does enjoy a cuddle and snuggle with her humans.

As Nora has apparently now bonded with Ned in-store, they now need to be adopted together. My apologies to those that wanted to adopt Nora separately.

The $200 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing.

Clover

Clover

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 months and 3 weeks

Clover and her sister (Tilly) came into care as adorable tiny babies still needing to be bottle-fed. As she quickly grew it became evident she would be a very curious cat, running up to you as soon as you entered the room. She's constantly purring and loves any kind of play. Despite her jumping and playing she'll happily curl up next to you or on your lap and nod off for hours.

Clover has been in foster care since 12 November 2019, for 3 months

Tilly

Tilly

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 months and 3 weeks

Tilly and her sister (Clover) were first taken into care as tiny adorable babies that still had to be bottle-fed. Now, much bigger Tilly has proven to be the ultimate sweetheart. She's the perfect chill-out buddy and sweetest companion. Although she has a very calm and sleepy side, she’s always up for a long play or chase.

Tilly has been in foster care since 12 November 2019, for 3 months

Frankie

Frankie

DSH - male - 8 years and 3 months

Introducing the gorgeous and handsome Frankie.

He is an indoor lap cat that just sucks up the cuddles. Now around 9 year's old, Frankie is totally healthy and up to date on everything, including being desexed.

Frankie is a quiet boy at the start, preferring to suss out his situation, but then as soon as he gathers himself is he super social, affectionate and really relaxed. He would truly fit right into any home. Since coming into care Frankie has really come out of his shell, and very quickly. It took about two days of persuasion for him to realise we were great, and now he can't get enough cuddles. He falls asleep on your chest just before bed in response to some nose rubs!!! He also loves to play! Anything string-like and Frankie is there! Chasing around the house and jumping up at it! He really is the best of both worlds!

Frankie does have a little lump on his front paw. This lump has since been checked by a pathologist to determine it is only a benign cyst which will not need to be removed in the future. Apparently he has had it for a very long time, and it hasn't changed at all nor does it irritate him. We have had a vet check it over, and they don't suggest removing it and just make sure his new owners are aware of it.

Frankie has been in foster care since 21 November 2019, for 3 months

Calister (aka Cali)

Calister (aka Cali)

Domestic Medium Haired - female - 1 year

Calister found herself lost and homeless with her two 10 week old babies when just a wee kitty herself. A great mum to her own kittens, Ally and Judge, it’s time for this lovely calico girl to be thoroughly spoilt by her own furever family.

Calister has happily lived alongside 4 resident adult cats, as well as multiple foster kittens including her own. Not yet 1 year old herself, she loves socialising and playing and sharing toys with them all.

She loooves her people, though. Calister has proved to be a real sweetheart and super affectionate. She’s also keen on a good chat, and has taken to being brushed like she was born to it! With a good scratch and petting added in she’s in heaven – although if she’s allowed on her carer’s bed, that is the icing on the cake.

Given all her attributes, we believe she’d adjust happily into any family provided she is not left alone for too long- a home with a resident cat to chill with could be good. While Calister needs to be able to keep an eye on the outside world for entertainment, she would be best as an indoor only kitty.

Calister is ready and waiting to meet her new furever family

Calister (aka Cali) has been in foster care since 05 December 2019, for 2 months
