Ned

Ned

Staffy cross - male - 3 months

Neds mother came into care after she was found wandering as a stray. At the time she was pregnant and shortly after she gave birth to her puppies. Ned and his brothers and sisters are looking for a home where they will be subjected to endless cuddles. He is very loving and loyal but also has a mind of his own at times. As his father is unknown, it is not known how big he will grow but his paws are HUGE. If you are able to give Ned his furever home then please contact us. Please note, phone calls are preferable

Ned has been in foster care since 12 January 2021, for 2 weeks

Sophie is such a beautiful, affectionate and loving girl. She is very soft with a gorgeous medium length coat. She absolutely loves to be around people and have a play or just sit and relax. She goes crazy with her plastic ball toy and like to chase things and flick them up in the air. Sophie is very chatty and makes cute trill noises all the time, and will stretch up onto your knee for pats. She is just a delight and is ready for her new home. Sophie would prefer to be the only cat in her new home, if there are other cats she will take time to adjust. She is out going and confident and is the perfect companion and wonderful company.

Chase

Chase

Ragdoll - male - 4 years and 5 months

Chase is a beautiful, gorgeous boy, affectionate... and loves food, especially fresh sardines and pilchard, but will eat pretty much any canned cat food.

Chase normally sleeps in the garden or on the front porch during the day and on our bed at night but if he wants to go outside he will meow very loudly. He is fine with cat friendly dogs, but wouldn't suit a family with young children as he will strike out if something displeases him unlike some cats that will put up with anything.

Only the perfect home for this majestic feline, no busy roads as he does like to visit the neighbours sometimes, they all know and love him, he's the king of the street! Very, very sadly have to rehome Chase thanks to Queensland government border closure to Hawkesbury. I would board him if there was a chance of getting him there within a specific time frame but it's all too uncertain!

I cannot stress enough that Chase will only go to the best of homes, he will need someone really dedicated and willing to acclimate him to his new home as stress free as possible.

I originally rescued him from a house that was about to be demolished (though surprisingly the sqatters in that house had his papers which showed he is a purebred ragdoll!) when he was unapproachable and rather vicious. However, once I caught him and put him in the car, he just slept on the back seat all the way from Liverpool to South Windsor! It took a few weeks to get him to trust me, hid behind the washing machine for the first 3 days but he finally came around and there was no looking back after that.

Chase is microchipped, desexed and vaccinated, and regularly flea and worm treated.

If you wish to learn more about this beautiful boy, or arrange a meet and greet, please contact his Mum. Viola.
