Kuma

Kuma

DSH - male

Kuma was surrended to us with his 3 siblings. He has beautiful tuxedo markings especally the white between his eyes. Kuma is a gentle yet outgoing kitten. He loves snuggles, playing soccer with his brothers and hiding in boxes before pouncing on his siblings.

Kuma comes litter trained and is socialised with older cats plus a small child. He has no fear.

The adoption fee of $200 covers desexing and 1st injection. All kittens in my care receive flea and worming treatment plus lots of cuddles.

Kuma is a great all round kitten, very well socialised and would suit most homes.

Kuma was adopted on 12 May 2017 after 1 month in foster care

Phoebe

Phoebe

DSH - female

Phoebe you have been one of my biggest challenges , rescued from a life of misery on the streets not ever knowing a loving touch you proved a hard nut to crack but we did it. I absolutely adore this little girl ,although still a little on the shy side she is now a total love bug.
Phoebe loves one on one attention,she becomes a total smoocher .

Phoebe has the prettiest coat that is so soft to the touch.She plays well with the other kittens in care and she has learnt to tolerate the resident dogs (3 of them) really well.

Phoebe would make an ideal apartment cat so if your a single person or maybe a working couple looking for that special kitty Phoebe might just be the one for you . I think toddlers and young children would be to much for this shy girl but if you have a cat friendly dog I cant see it being a problem.Look forward to hearing from you.

Phoebe was adopted on 10 May 2017 after 2 months in foster care

Buddy

Buddy

GSD x husky - male

This young man will make a wonderful addition to any home that can cater to a larger dog. He's approx 30kg and looks like he might have some filling out to do. While he's probably got a few different breeds in him, his temprament is similar to a german shephard.

Buddy is a really lovely young dog, he does enjoy playing and will need regular exercise but he's not over the top and is quite placid much of the time. Buddy can sit, drop and shake hands and he's eager and keen to learn more!

He's house trained and currently sleeps at the foot of his carers bed. He's a good traveller in the car and is really just a delight to have around.

With is very goofy ears he's quite the character and if you have a loving home where he can be part of the family then please contact us.

Kevin

Kevin

DSH - male

KEVIN is considering a new home, much to the sadness of his current humans. He is a much-loved sook and larrikin who, despite being very affectionate to his humans, is giving his adoptive sister (another rescue cat) a very difficult time. He would therefore only consider homes where he is the solitary adored pet.

KEVIN is the kind of cat who climbs onto you while you’re watching TV and purrs like a little lawn mower. He loves chin rubs, sardines, playing with the red dot on laser pointers, climbing trees or watching the world go by from the balcony. He is an inside cat, but does enjoy an hour or two (daylight hours only) hanging out in our courtyard. It’s important to note that we do not live on a busy road, nor do we have wildlife that Kevin can help himself to.

KEVIN would suit a home with adults or children over the age of 7. Younger children would probably scare him. He is particularly partial to Ladies Of a Certain Age, and we have had ladies-next-door stock their cupboards for this little Casanova.

If you or anyone you know is looking for a Kevin in their life, he comes with solid references and a lot of character. We’d miss him so much, but think he and our other cat will be much happier if living separately and would like to offer them that opportunity. Kevin will come with his food bowl, litter box, cat carrier, his bed and laser pointer, as well as a supply of his current food (wet and dry). We are not just looking for a new home for Kevin, but for the right home for him.

Nugget

Nugget

Domestic Short Hair - male

Nugget was surrendered into DCH care at approximately 4 weeks old without his mother. He has been in foster care and is now ready for his furrrrrever home.

Nugget is dark grey and white with very special markings. He has huge ears and eyes that always get comments. He is beginning to grow into them.

He is a very quiet kitty. He is cautiously curious, but he isn't one of those cats that gets everywhere. There are stairs that he has never even attempted to investigate. He loves the cat tree, his favourite sleeping spot is the second story condo. He scratches on it like a pro and hasn't scratched on any furniture.

He loves a cuddle and is often up for a nap on someone's lap. He has a wonderful purr that he shares when he is excited to see you, during cuddles and when he gets his breakfast and dinner.

He does not ask for or beg for food. He waits patiently. but is excited when it shows up and tells you with his loud purrs. He grazes on crunchies.

He is very playful. He is an excellent soccer player with a ping pong ball. Shoe laces and a pair of runners provide endless entertainment. Trying to catch that red dot from a laser light was an instant hit.

He can be a bit skittish if he is surprised or if there are loud noises. He has been in foster care with one person, but he is definitely a kitty that loves company and would do well with a family or someone who is home a fair amount.

He is a sweetie and will be your little love.

He has been vaccinated, microchipped and desexed 06-04-17.

He is currently located in Marsden Park and can be seen in the PetStock store @ Marsden Park.

Nugget was adopted on 04 May 2017 after 2 months in foster care

Tilda

Tilda

Thoroughbred mare - female

Tilda is a very sweet old girl and loves attention. Without fail she is always the first to the gate when you arrive for feed time, and loves nothing more than some carrots and a good neck scratch. She is good to handle, easy to catch and trim and travels well. She gets on well with other horses in a paddock situation.

Very little is known about her background. Tilda (Gain Time) was retired from racing in 2002. When the current owner acquired her she was suffering from serious neglect and possible abuse. She had to be brought back to health before any riding was considered. Since then Tilda has been saddled and lunged but not ridden. She is being sold as a companion horse at this stage, but in a knowledgeable home may be rideable with training.

Tilda is regularly wormed and trimmed. She is up to date with her vaccinations.

Colour: Chestnut
Size: 15.2hh

Located in the Hills District.

Tilda was adopted on 01 May 2017 after 6 months in foster care

Oscar

Oscar

Domestic Short Hair - male

Oscar the not so Wilde:
The beautiful ginger brother of Timmy the Adventurer, Oscar is smaller in stature and more calculating than his grey brother. While The Adventurer leaps into puddles without a care, Oscar watches from afar, assesses the situation, observes the results of his brother's brash actions, and THEN pounces into the puddles. He is another of the strange breeds of kitten that enjoys the water (both him and Timmy have fallen into the toilet), Oscar, however, thinks before he acts.

While Timmy startles at loud sounds, Oscar observes whether such a reaction is necessary and acts accordingly the next time. While Timmy rushes to introduce himself to any and all strangers, Oscar observes first and then introduces himself. He is slower to begin playing, but once he does, he plays with exuberance (though he is not as much of a fan of the wrestling).

We learned quickly with Oscar, however, that the quickest way to his heart is a good belly rub. He LOVES a good belly rub and will purr uncontrollably once you get it right. Oscar is a very affectionate cat, especially when he is in nap mode, which is often. He enjoys company and an empty chair to curl up in, and will chatter your ear off, telling you how he is feeling with a series of pigeon-like meows and his peaceful purr.

Likes:
Water
Racquetballs
Empty bags
Napping
Belly rubs
Chatting
Company (in human or animal form)

Dislikes:
Acting fast
Being the first to do anything
When you stop rubbing his belly

Oscar has been desexed and is fully immunised with his 3 vaccinations completed. He is wormed and microchipped and looking for a new home.

He is located in the Sydney Olympic Park area.

Oscar was adopted on 30 April 2017 after 2 months in foster care

Timmy

Timmy

Domestic Short Hair - male

Timmy the Adventurer:
Rain pours from the sky in Timmy the Adventurer's new home, forming great puddles on the back patio and relinquishing the need, his guardians think, for the patio door to be closed. For a moment, Timmy allows his guardians to bask in their knowledge of cats and their distaste of water. Then they turn their heads and The Adventurer is out the door. As his brother, Oscar, cautiously watches over him, Timmy discovers that water is not to be feared, but be played in! He is fascinated by bubbles and in minutes finds the joy in parading through the puddles, high stepping like a Clydesdale, eliciting new joy in each splash.

This is Timmy the Adventurer, scourge of Lego mini figures, and scoundrel of the seven patio puddles. He leaves no corner unexplored as he seeks adventure and fun. Amongst his favorite treasures are the many hair ties left around the apartment, empty brown paper bags, and running faucets. Timmy also enjoys spending his time napping around the house, preferably with company (he is a very affectionate kitten), and playing with his many toys.

Likes:
Water
Hair ties
Toys
Empty bags
Cuddling and or wrestling
Napping
Company (in human or animal form)

Dislikes:
Thunder
Being told not to jump on things

Timmy has been desexed and is fully immunised with his 3 vaccinations completed. He is wormed and microchipped and looking for a new home.

He is located in the Sydney Olympic Park area.

Timmy was adopted on 30 April 2017 after 2 months in foster care

Roy

Roy

Domestic Short Hair - male

Foster Carer or New Home NeededRoy is a really handsome boy. He has a beautiful soft ginger coat with a thick white bib and socks, and a striking thick tail. He's inquisitive, will quickly check out anything that changes in our house, and still has kitten energy which is a lot of fun. He is quite independent and will sometimes disappear downstairs for a bit of solo time, but loves to curl up with us on the sofa or the end of the bed for a long sleep too. He has a cute little miaow.

He enjoys being around people of all ages, is happy to be handled and comes to greet anyone who comes to the door, but he is also quite happy to be left during the day.

We have primary-school aged children and the cats both enjoy them.

He have always been an inside cat, but Roy in particular seems very keen to go outside.

He is desexed, litter trained, and vaccinations and worming/flea treatments are up to date. They are in excellent health and love a mix of wet and dry food.

Located in St Ives

Roy was adopted on 30 April 2017 after 1 month in foster care
