Ziggy

Ziggy

Domestic Medium Hair - male - 3 months and 2 weeks

NOW ON HOLD FOR ADOPTION

Ziggy was surrendered to Hawkesbury Animal Shelter with her brother, Zeppelin, before both came into DCH foster care. These kittens have been bottle-fed and are very sociable with people.

Ziggy is a confident, affectionate and very playful kitten who has lots of energy and curiosity! This tiny kitty usually comes running when I click my fingers, and she will also follow me around the house to keep me company. She loves playing in cat tunnels and chasing laser lights and flies!

Ziggy is also very happy to sit and be a lap cat.

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. These kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other kittens.

Ziggy is now on hold pending Adoption.

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

Ziggy has been in foster care since 03 November 2020, for 2 months

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

shd - female - 1 year and 4 months

Marilyn Monroe is a beautiful, smoochy female that came into the pound with 6 healthy babies. She has hauntingly pretty face with beautiful eyes and unusual tortoisehell face plus tabby striped body. She was a little underweight when she came into care so she is now getting supplement feeds while she's feeding her babies. She has a quiet meow and greets you when you come into her room.
She is litter trained, indoor cat now who, to her credit has already taught her babies how to use the litter pan by 4 weeks of age.

Marilyn Monroe has been in foster care since 14 November 2020, for 2 months

Annie

Annie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 months and 3 weeks

NOW ON HOLD FOR ADOPTION

Annie and her siblings, Angus, Addie and Asha were found living under a shed in St Helens Park and had not had human contact when they came into DCH foster care. They still run and hide when startled or meeting new people, so they will need an adopter who will be patient.

Annie is the smallest of the litter and she is still quite shy but now she comes for a cuddle and pat as soon as I sit on the lounge. Annie is a beautiful little kitty who will really thrive and become more confident with some individual love and attention.

Annie is being desexed on the 8th January, so she will be ready to go to her new home from the 15th January 2021. Annie must be kept as an Indoor Only cat in her new home (this means that she does not go outside).

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. These kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other foster kittens.

Annie is now on hold pending Adoption.

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

Asha

Domestic Medium Hair - female - 3 months and 3 weeks

NOW ON HOLD FOR ADOPTION

Asha and her siblings, Angus, Addie and Annie were found living under a shed in St Helens Park and had not had human contact when they came into DCH foster care. They still run and hide when startled or meeting new people, so they will need an adopter who will be patient.

Asha is a beautiful medium haired little lady who has just gained her confidence with people and is quite affectionate. She still runs away initially until she knows you but Asha has just discovered that she rather likes pats and cuddles! Asha can be quite active and playful but does really enjoy snoozing on a sunny windowsill.

Asha was desexed on the 8th January, so she will be ready to go to her new home from the 15th January 2021. Annie must be kept as an Indoor Only cat in her new home (this means that she does not go outside).

Addie

Addie

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 months and 3 weeks


ON HOLD FOR ADOPTION

Addie and her siblings, Angus, Annie and Asha were found living under a shed in St Helens Park and had not had human contact when they came into DCH foster care. They still run and hide when startled or meeting new people, so they will need an adopter who will be patient.

Addie is being desexed on the 8th January, so she will be ready to go to her new home from the 15th January 2021. Addie must be kept as an Indoor Only cat in her new home (this means that she does not go outside).

The only tabby in the litter with three white siblings, Addie was also the most scared but after a few weeks of tlc and getting to know other foster kittens, she has become playful and more confident. This beautiful girl is fine when picked up and she snuggles closer and closer each time, when she’s tired. I have no doubt she will become a little snuggle pot once she trusts her new owner.

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. These kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other foster kittens.

Addie is now on hold pending Adoption.

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

Pepper

Pepper

DSH - female - 3 months and 2 weeks

Pepper came into foster care from a western Sydney Animal Shelter around 2.5 weeks of age along with 2 siblings. She has been hand raised and bottle fed and has had LOTS of human attention and handling.

Pepper is a little shy compared to her brother Peanut but once she is comfortable in her environment she comes out of his shell and loves to play with the other kittens and with any toy that moves. She enjoys a quick pat but is currently a little on the independent side so is not currently a lap cat.

Desexed, has been 1st and 2nd F3 vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated.

Bianca

Bianca

DSH - female - 4 months and 3 weeks

Bianca is a stunning kitten. She came into care as a very shy and timid kitten but has been developing very well. She will meow at you for a pat or attention but is still skittish. She will purr and roll over when being pat but is still learning to trust people. She is going to take a while for any new owner to earn her trust so will need to be adopted by someone with some patience who can win her over again.

She really comes out of her shell when she is away from her siblings and on her own and seeks out company.

She loves her Royal Canin kitten dry food and also enjoys Royal Canin Kitten instinctive wet food.

She's been microchipped desexed, 1st and 2nd F3 vaccinated, wormed and has had a flea prevention treatment.

Bianca has been in foster care since 22 November 2020, for 2 months

Mumma

Mumma

Domestic Medium Hair - female - 1 year and 11 months

Mumma was rescued with her 3 kittens, whom she was feeding in a back garden.

Mumma -plus Darla, Tilly and Bravo - thrived in an active foster family, comprising mum and dad, two kids, cats (both resident and foster), canines and bunnies. So, we believe Mumma can fit - just like her kittens already have - in just about any family environment, provided it is an indoor-only home. Now Mumma's kittens have left, she is hoping her furever home is just around the corner.

Mumma is a really beautiful cat inside and out. She is sweet and very affectionate. You can pet her for hours although she doesn’t like to be picked up.

Mumma comes and rolls over for her petting and enjoys human companionship. She is curious and likes to explore new places and be where the excitement is. She quickly becomes comfortable with her human companions and shows a lot of love.

Mumma is vet–checked, microchipped and vaccinated, and desexed, so is ready and raring to go to her new family.

If you’d like to meet Mumma at her temporary home in Ermington, please email us.

Mumma has been in foster care since 27 November 2020, for 2 months
