Domestic Short Hair - male

Merlin is a beautiful white domestic short-haired cat with champagne spots and he has the most gorgeous green eyes you've ever seen. He has a unique white and champagne striped tail. Merlin is the most affectionate and loving cat you've ever met, and he has a quiet and gentle nature. He is friendly, and loves pats and cuddles and will come over and sit on your lap whenever given the chance! He likes to greet you when you come home and will rub his head on your head and purrs when he gets patted. He is extremely inquisitive and observant and loves to watch birds!

We adopted Merlin from the vet as a kitten and he has been microchipped, desexed and is vaccinated. He has been toilet trained as a kitten. Only recently he has been anxious and stressed around our active and boisterous 1 year old and has consequently been going to the toilet outside his litter tray. This is stress-related which is why we have sadly had to make the tough choice to find him a new home (this won't be an issue in a quieter environment). He deserves a loving home and would be happy in a peaceful environment with life companions. Merlin is a healthy cat and is very well behaved.

Merlin is Microchipped, Vaccinated and Desexed

Burmese - female

Claudia needs a home before 9/10/16

Claudia is a 10 year old beautiful chocolate Burmese with the softest fur, a love of sitting on laps and very chatty. Such wonderful company! I find her characteristics very similar to those of a Siamese. For short bursts of time, Claudia acts like a kitten, loves to be chased through the house & run through her play tube.

A typical diva, Claudia does not like other pets, babies or toddlers. With supervision, she can do well with gentle children. When adopted 3 years ago, Claudia had not been outdoors, but she did well in our yard at the end of a cul-de-sac. She loves a visit outside in temperate weather, but goes back inside to use her litter box.



DSH - female

Fifi is in the top 5 best rescues we have personally had in our home, she is looking for someone very special, she a sweet little girl who enjoys playing and chasing, curling up for a cuddle, she has a healthy appetite.

She is happy and healthy and is litter trained.

Fifi is very sweet, big hearted girl and would be best suited as an indoor cat.

Fifi is still very cute, full of energy, excitable but very smart. Fifi is looking for someone who will love her well into her twilight years so if you can offer Fifi a safe loving forever home please don't hesitate to call.

Fifi is micro-chipped, desexed, vaccinated, and wormed.

Fifi was adopted on 20 October 2016 after 2.9 years in foster care

Ollie is a fantastic cat. He is friendly to everyone, & often greets people at the gate rubbing up against their legs and kneading his paws.

He loves to get lots of attention from people.

Located in The Hills District of Sydney

Ollie was adopted on 13 October 2016 after 3.7 years in foster care

Miss Kitty

Miss Kitty

Domestic Short Hair - female

Look at me, please look at me! Life isn't fair: I've done everything I can to learn what pleases my new human, but it turns out she was looking after me for only two months, and now she's off on holidays and I'll be in a cat enclosure with no lap to sit on!!! Does she not understand I AM A LAP CAT....

I've been in care less than 2 months, but I've already learnt that I can hurt humans if I use my claws or teeth , and I try hard to remember. If I forget, my foster mum only has to say 'Ow', and I do a lick or a gentle bite or paw instead.

I'm naturally affectionate, and my favourite thing is to sit on a lap or lie beside my human on the bed. I am good at purring, and like to say welcome with a quiet miaow. I do like friends who drop by, particularly if they play with me.

I didn't like the other cats around me in my previous home, and I think I rather enjoy a quiet environment. I'm probably not the best feline friend for young, boisterous children because there are bits of me, like my tummy and toes which I really don't like being touched.

A note from my current mum:
Kitty is a pretty calico girl. She readily appears and comes to you when invited with a 'pwpwpwpw' sound, and responds well to quiet commands to stop, such as no, tut, etc. She loves her food, but doesn't demand it. We don't know much about her previous home, but she is now a fully fledged indoor cat, and is very happy in my apartment.

All in all, it appears she will thrive and return affection in a loving and gentle environment without feline competition.

Miss Kitty is ready and waiting for her permanent home.

*Miss Kitty is listed as Urgent as her carer goes overseas on holidays in mid October 16. A home before then is needed*

Miss Kitty was adopted on 08 October 2016 after 2 months in foster care



Fox Terrier X Chihuahua - male

Simba has been surrendered by his owner into the Pound on the 21st September.

DCH has rescued him from the pound and he only spent a few hours at the shelter and is now looking for a new home.

Simba is very friendly and is a very quiet peaceful dog.
He logs the kids in my neighborhood pat and play with him.
Simba seems to be OK with other dogs and I have not had any issues with walking him at the park.
He is very friendly and loves a pat.
He will sit on command and seems to be toilet trained.

Simba is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, flea treated and has been tested for Heart Worm.

To arrange to meet Simba please contact us.

Located in Quakers Hill

Simba was adopted on 08 October 2016 after 2 weeks in foster care



Ragdoll - female

Cleo's owners are moving overseas and their beautiful female Ragdoll is in need of a loving home.

She is a year and a half old and has a beautifully quirky and playful nature.

She isn’t a lap cat and can be quite independent but loves company and will follow you into every room. She loves to play and have her belly scratched and while she’s not the type of cat that wants to be picked up and cuddled she will come to you in her own time.

Although she has only been an indoor cat she would love a little garden to chase the flies around in as she has a carefully inquisitive nature. However if so, Cleo would need some help transitioning to becoming an outdoor cat in a quiet backyard. She is fully house trained, de-sexed, micro chipped and up to date on all her vaccinations.

She is Fully Vaccinated - annual health check and next vaccination due 10 August 2017

Cleo has not been around other animals so its unknown how she would react so she would probably be best in a single cat home. Cleo does not seem to mind kids.

Medical Notes:
Seems to have developed an itch recently which may be a result of something in our home environment. We have consulted the vet and have completed a food trial and a course of steroids. To date not completly cured.

Located in Neutral Bay
