Sebastian

Sebastian

DSH - male - 2 years

Sebastian is an extremely shy, loving and very smoochy boy, looking for his Forever Person. Please contact me if you are confident with cats and have the patience to wait for the trust of this big, beautiful boy. (It is so worth it! 😻)

Sebastian and his sister, Scarlett, are from a litter of 4 x kittens that were rescued from street life in 2022.

Sebastian is an absolutely stunning 5.7kg tabby and white young man, who is lazy, cheeky and affectionate. He also thinks he is a lap cat! Sebastian will come running when I click my fingers as he knows that means food time… or pats and cuddles! And he has discovered he LOVES the brush, so now it is a nightly ritual!

I think the ideal place for Sebastian to be a great companion, would be a home with someone who lived alone (with or without other animals). If you’re unsure but interested, come and meet Seb in my foster room, and spend some time with him.

Sebastian has come such a long way in foster care, and he will need a confident adopter to initially provide a calm space for him to thrive. However, his natural curiosity and love of food means that Sebastian can be socialised quicker, using treats & hand-feeding.

Seb adores head rubs, back rubs, belly rubs, and he is such a smooch, he will headbutt you for more (watch the video!). Sebastian is also very sociable with other foster/resident cats and the resident (large) dogs.

The reduced $160 adoption fee includes:

  • Microchipping,
  • Worming/flea-treatment,
  • Vaccination,
  • Desexing
  • So he lives his best and longest life, Sebastian must also be an INDOOR ONLY cat (but of course this can include access to a secure outdoor catio or enclosure).

    Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in meeting Sebastian. Just include in your email, your experience with cats, and why you’re genuinely interested in adopting Sebastian.

    PLEASE NOTE: I no longer receive phone calls/messages from unknown mobiles, but I will contact you as soon as I receive your email enquiry.

  • If you are renting, please ensure that you have written approval to keep a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.
  • You must be an Australian Citizen, over 18 years old, to adopt an animal, and, for a kitten, also be prepared to look after it for up to 20years! 😻
  • In the current economic climate, please also consider annual vet fees and future feeding costs before committing to adopt

  • Sebastian has been in foster care since 18 October 2022, for 1.8 years

    Scarlett

    Scarlett

    DSH - female - 2 years

    Scarlett was diagnosed in March 2024, with a Heart Murmur. It is thought to be a Grade 3/6, which is mid-range.
    As the condition has not caused any issues, Scarlett does not take medication and lives a normal life.

    Scarlett and her brother, Sebastion, are from a litter of 4 x kittens that were rescued from street life and then taken into foster care by DCH.

    Scarlett will need an experienced adopter who would like to work with a cat to further her socialisation. Your home needs to be calm and quiet, a single person or couple would be ideal. Scarlett is very gentle and will become a wonderful and affectionate little companion for the right person.

    The video of Scarlett will show you her potential and she will thrive in the right home.Please contact me if you would like to arrange a day to come and meet Scarlet.

    The adoption fee is $160 and Scarlett is:

  • Microchipped,
  • Wormed/flea-treated,
  • Vaccinated (until March 2025),
  • Desexed
  • So she lives her best and longest life, Scarlett must also be an INDOOR ONLY cat.

    Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in arranging a visit. PLEASE INCLUDE INFORMATION about why you are interested in Scarlett.
    (PLEASE NOTE: I no longer respond to phone calls/messages from unknown mobiles).

    If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

    You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal, and, for a kitten, also be prepared to look after it for up to 20years! 😻

    Marley

    Marley

    DSH - male - 1 year and 9 months

    The Sweetheart with a Story to Tell
    Marley isn't your average cat. He's a bundle of playful energy with a heart of gold.

    A Lap Cat in the Making: This silky soft fellow may not be a cuddle champion right away, but with gentle patience, he'll transform into a snuggle buddy extraordinaire, warming your lap with rhythmic purrs. He loves to snuggle up for long naps and movie marathons (though he might steal most of the bed!).

    Playful Prowess: Don't be fooled by his initial shyness. With a wand toy, feather, or even a stray bubble, Marley's playful side explodes. Get ready for zoomies, pounces, and endless entertainment!

    Chatty Cathy: Marley's got a way with words, or rather, meows and trills. He'll narrate his adventures, share his opinions, and shower you with affection in his own special language.

    Sunbeam Seeker: When playtime is over, Marley transforms into a sun-worshipping zen master. Picture him basking in a warm patch of light, watching the world go by with a content sigh.

    Gentle Heart, Cautious Approach: Marley's past may have been rough, but it hasn't dimmed his capacity for love. Loud noises or new people can trigger his shy side, even after a year with us, a knock at the door might still send him scurrying for his cozy hideaway. But don't be discouraged! The slower you approach, the sooner his curiosity will conquer his fear and you'll unlock his playful spirit and loving personality.

    Marley's the perfect match for someone who:
    • Values genuine companionship
    • Understands that trust takes time and is willing to invest in building a bond
    • Can offer a loving and understanding home
    • Has the time and energy for lots of playful and enriching activities

    Are you ready to discover a truly unique feline friend whose love, once earned, is a precious treasure?

    Marley is currently using pine wood cat litter and eating Raw Meow and Ziwi Peak. He has been raised as an indoor cat and so will need to go into an INDOOR ONLY home.

    The $150 adoption fee includes:

  • Microchipping
  • Worming/flea-treatment
  • Vaccination
  • Desexing

  • Marley must also be an INDOOR ONLY cat.
    Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting. You must be over 18 years old and a permanent Australian resident to adopt an animal.

    Marley has been in foster care since 09 December 2022, for 1.6 years

    Valentine

    Valentine

    DSH - female - 1 year and 8 months

    Valentine is Desexed and fully Vaccinated (until March 2025) and very ready to find her Forever Home.
    You and your family are very welcome to arrange a meeting to see if Val is your girl!

    The Ginger Ninja's...Valentine and her sister Veronica came into DCH care from a rural property when they were scared, hungry 3-4 month old kittens, in 2023.

    Veronica has now been adopted and, although Valentine did have a previous adoption & return, it was because she was not the best fit. It appears that Valentine would prefer a big house to explore, possibly with other animals and even safe outside access included!

    Valentine is a very graceful and curious young lady who might be suited to an older family or to be company for another cat or cat-safe dog. Val is affectionate but not a lap cat, although she will sit and keep you company, and keep you entertained with her antics.

    Valentine dislikes being carried around and picked up a lot and also being restrained. However, pats, chin scratches, crunchy treats, and of course a sunny windowsill are still her favorites! Flying insects will keep her occupied for hours, plus she does love a laser light - her hunting instincts are very strong!

    The $160 adoption fee includes:

  • Microchipping,
  • Worming/flea-treatment,
  • Vaccination,
  • Desexing
  • So she lives her best and longest life, Valentine must also be an INDOOR ONLY cat (but of course this can include access to a secure outdoor catio or enclosure).

    Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in meeting Valentine. Just include in your email, whether you’ve owned cats before, and why you’re genuinely interested in adopting Valentine.

    PLEASE NOTE: I no longer receive phone calls/messages from unknown mobiles, but I will contact you as soon as I receive your email enquiry.

  • If you are renting, please ensure that you have written approval to keep a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.
  • You must be an Australian Citizen, over 18 years old, to adopt an animal, and, for a kitten, also be prepared to look after it for up to 20years! 😻
  • In the current economic climate, please also consider annual vet fees and future feeding costs before committing to adopt

  • Valentine has been in foster care since 10 February 2023, for 1.4 years

    Poppy AKA Poptart

    Poppy AKA Poptart

    DSH - female - 1 year and 4 months

    Poppy is no longer the little kitten any more, she has grown into a lovely girl.

    Poppy was adopted then returned through no fault of her own , the resident cat just did not like her.

    Now almost an adult she has become quite independent and does not like being an indoor only cat so you must have a secure backyard or a catio.

    Poppy gets on well with the resident cats and loves her doggy companions.

    Poppy loves her food and is litter trained.

    Poppy is already desexed and has had her first vaccination and is flea and worm treated and of course she is micro chipped.

    Poppy is in care in the Granville area and I might add photos don't do her justice.

    Poppy AKA Poptart has been in foster care since 24 May 2023, for 1.1 years

    Imran (and Epponnee)

    Imran (and Epponnee)

    Dsh - male - 1 year and 2 months

    Imran (and Epponnee) found themselves abandoned, under a house, when a member of the public located and rescued them.
    Imran has since become a curious, playful cat. He loves to chase his teaser toys, lay in the windows, soaking up the sun or just spending time with Epponnee, grooming and cuddling together.
    Imran prefers it if Epponnee makes sure the coast is clear before he follows her and relies on her to make him feel safe. Due to this they're a bonded pair and are looking to find their home together.
    The siblings would do well in a calm home, perhaps with older children. They can be left alone during working hours - they'll sleep and relax whilst you work hard to bring home the kibble.

    Imran (and Epponnee) has been in foster care since 01 August 2023, for 11 months

    Epponnee (and Imran)

    Epponnee (and Imran)

    Dsh - female - 1 year and 2 months

    Epponnee and Imran found themselves abandoned, under a house, when a member of the public located and rescued them.
    Since coming into care Epponnee and her brother have been enjoying the noicer things in life, such as sleeping on beds, regular meals, many cuddles and a lot of play with new toys.
    Eppi is the braver of the siblings, always scouting everything out before Imran follows. She loves being held and patted and has an impressive motor for such a tiny cat, purring loudly.
    Eppi and Imran are looking for an indoor only home together as they're a bonded pair. They would do well in a calm environment with older children. They can be left alone together during the day, so would suit a working family/person. They both use their litter tray reliably.

    Epponnee (and Imran) has been in foster care since 01 August 2023, for 11 months
