Flash

Flash

Domestic Short Hair - male

Flash came into care with his two friends, Pebbles and Marbles. Both cats are kid-friendly and dog-friendly, have lived their indoor only lives with several young children, and a small dog.

Flash is the Prince of the trio. He is a goofball that likes to play and chatter to his humans - a vocal lad. He loves his food and will check if you have food before he lets you touch him. If you do then he is VERY happy to meet you.

Nothing seems to bother him as he's always relaxed. He will suit an indoor home with existing animals for him to bond with.

Pebbles

Pebbles

Domestic Short Hair - female

Pebbles came into care with her two friends, Marbles and Flash. Both cats are kid-friendly and dog-friendly, having lived their indoor-only lives with several young children, and a small dog.

Pebbles is a gentle soul. She is great with everyone including children, and will remove herself from a situation (completely peacefully) if she's uncomfortable or needs a break.
Pebbles likes to make friends straight away, and once she trusts you she showers you in cuddles and kisses. She will thrive in a calm and loving environment, with existing pets that she can bond with.

Minnie Mum

Minnie Mum

DMH - female

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

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.

Linus

Linus

Domestic Short Hair - male

Linus was recently surrendered into foster care to find a new loving forever home. His owner had been unable to rehome him and wanted to ensure Linus finds a great home. Linus and his sister, Libby, are now in care in Milson’s Point. They are both healthy, happy and very sociable.

Linus is a stunning brown Tabby boy with big brown eyes. This little guy likes to show off his true hunting instincts with his agility in chasing and capturing cat toys with extreme precision. In between, he also likes to take long cat naps and asks for cuddles from his humans as well. In summary, Linus is a pretty laid back kitty - unless he is “hunting”, and then he means business!

Linus is microchipped, desexed, vaccinated and vet checked, and has had his flea and worming treatments.

Enquiries are welcome now.

NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols; currently one person at a time. Given travel restrictions, a ‘meet and greet’ may instead be arranged via videoconference.

Linus was adopted on 02 May 2020 after 2 weeks in foster care

Libby

Libby

Domestic Short Hair - female

Libby was recently surrendered into foster care to find a new loving forever home. Her owner had been unable to rehome her and wanted to ensure Libby finds a great home. Libby and her brother, Linus, are now in care in Milson’s Point. They are both healthy, happy and very sociable.

Libby, a beautiful Tabby and white girl, with little white paws, is a very sweet, purring machine! It took her a nanosecond to settle in, and she also loves to play and, of course, then take long cat naps afterwards.

Libby also likes to curl up next to her people on the couch and show her affection by purring loudly and maybe giving your fingers a good lick. This kitty knows nothing about social distancing….


Libby is microchipped, vaccinated and vet checked, and has had her flea and worming treatments. She is being desexed today, and will be available for adoption after recovery, probably around May 7. However, enquiries are welcome now.

She and her brother, Linus, are available to indoor only homes.

NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols; currently one person at a time. Given travel restrictions, a ‘meet and greet’ may instead be arranged via videoconference.

Penny

Penny

dsh - female

Penny's personality is the most gentle I've ever come across in a kitty. Even after she'd been with us for only a short time, she purred very fast and very loudly when picked up. She is generally shy with new people though, so her furever family may have to give her a couple of weeks to settle, to allow her to gain the confidence that she's safe and loved. Penny does love playing with toys, and happily eats whatever cat food is on offer.

Although she doesn’t realise it herself, Penny walks with a very unusual gait. (See Video). After a thorough vet check-up, including x-rays, the vet has ruled out any problems with her bones and joints. Instead the vet thinks it may be neurological, and in any event, thankfully, it causes no pain and Penny is perfectly happy the way she is!

Penny does have strength in those back legs, as she loves to stand up on them so she can see what might be of interest up the bench - taking her full body weight. Fortunately, she hasn’t learnt yet to jump up on the furniture, but ,when she decides to chase her feline foster friends, Penny just launches herself straight at them from her sleeping position.

Penny has enjoyed being an indoor kitty to date, and because she doesn’t realise her legs won’t run fast enough to get away from dangerous situations, her new furever home must also be indoors. She does love her cat buddies, and is also living harmoniously with her carer’s large cat friendly dogs, so a family (be it large, a couple or a single person) with existing potential playmates may well find her a wonderful companion. Because Penny is very gentle, however, any animal friends should not play rough.

Penny is microchipped, and her vaccinations are up to date. Her adoption fee includes de-sexing.

If you would like to meet this special kitty at her foster home in Glenhaven , please call her carer Jeni to arrange a time.

Penny was adopted on 02 May 2020 after 1.8 years in foster care

Maggie

Maggie

DSH - female

Maggie is currently in care with her two siblings, Miss Maple and Harriet (see profiles).

She has had a bit of a rough start to life, coming into care at about 4 weeks of age without a mum but that hasn't held her back at all! Maggie is growing into a sassy, vocal and confident cat. She just loves her pats and literally just any attention. She will talk back and parade around her carers feet in an effort to be picked up and cuddled.

Maggie is very fond of mealtimes and always finishes her food. She has a very cute little belly and loves it patted and lightly scratched. She would do great in most homes but would prefer a friend if she is to be left alone for a longer period of time. Maggie is confident around big dogs, dominant bunnies and adult cats so she could possibly make an excellent companion to your existing furfam.

Maggie is microchipped and vaccinated; she will be desexed next week, and available for adoption after she has recovered, probably around April 28.

If you'd like to meet Maggie, please get in touch. We are taking enquiries now, with a view to arranging any meet and greets later in the month.
NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols; currently one person at a time.

Maggie was adopted on 02 May 2020 after 2 months in foster care

Netflix

Netflix

DSH - female

Netflix is a fantastic isolation buddy! She loves climbing onto your lap for a snooze, and otherwise loves playing with other kitties and cheekily runs right infront of your face when you're reading or using your phone.
Nicknamed 'Adventure Cat' she loves climbing on everything and exploring her home. She has lots of energy to play with her litter mates and loves running around her foster carer's home.

Her adoption fee includes her desexing, vaccination and microchipping, as well as her being current with flea and deworming schedules.

All kittens have been well socialised with other cats and have been introduced to dogs, and will adapt well to any home. They all use their litter tray and scratching post, and enjoy a varied diet of kitten kibble, canned kitten food, chicken wings, chicken livers, chicken hearts and fresh meat. It is preferred that they go to indoor only homes (or those with enclosed outdoor runs).

Netflix was adopted on 29 April 2020 after 4 months in foster care
