Smidge

Smidge

DSH - female

Smidge is a wonderful little girl who was born on the 2nd October, 2013 and is ready to go to her new home now. She loves to explore, gets on well with other cats and is a delight to have around. She is easy going, cheeky and very playful.

Smidge is often zooming around the house, entertaining herself. But she also likes to cuddle with her people at the end of the day. She is very good with her carer's 2 dogs. She likes to cuddle with them, wash their ears and faces and also wrestles with them sometimes.

Smidge is probably not suitable as an only pet unless her human is home a lot. She does get lonely if left alone for long periods of time. So far she has been an indoor only cat, but likes to sit and watch the going-ons outside through the window or screen door.

She would love to go to her very own forever “indoor only” home, she is already litter trained.

Smidge was adopted on 11 September 2014 after 8 months in foster care

Lily

Lily

DSH - female

Lily's a lovely well behaved girl. She has huge yellow eyes, a very soft coat and a big purr.
During the day she likes to go outside to explore and sunbake as she pleases. She always sleeps inside at night. She tried living in an apartment once, but found it too stressful. So she would like to find a new owner that lives in a house, or has access to a garden, where she can come and go safely.

Lilys elderly foster carer says she is very gentle. She never scratches, bites or claws, kind to people and furniture.

She has met a couple of young children and remained gentle, but wasn't really interested in extended kitten type play, or being picked up all the time either.

She does like to chase her ball and have a run around after dinner before she climbs on her carers knee for a cuddle.

Lily loves quiet company, but is social enough that she pops in to say hello to neighbours and doesn't run when visitors come calling.

Her best match would likely be a retired person(s). But if you think your home and Lily would be a good fit too and you can provide her love and care, please call for more details.

Lily was adopted on 10 September 2014 after 1.3 years in foster care

DSH - female

Nala is a very playful, affectionate, gorgeous little girl with eyes like a bush baby. She was rescued from death row as an 8 month old kitten. She loves playing with her toys chasing her feline friends around the house and is the perfect lap cat. She is very talkative and has a wonderful temperament.

Although she loves cuddles and affection, she also enjoys her time alone curled up on the bottom of the bed. Nala would suit most households and gets along well with children and other household pets. However, she will need to be an indoor cat as is very curious and may tend to wander.

DSH - male

Chopper is a fantastic little kitten who is very vocal & has something to say about everything whether its for food or he just wants me to sit down so I can cuddle him.

Never ask him what’s wrong because he will tell you.

I have had Chopper in care since he was 2 weeks old & he has been bottle fed until he was 6 weeks old which I find makes for very affectionate little kittens & cats

Chopper has personality plus & gives everything he does 100% whether its playing with his toys, his foster brothers or cuddling up with me which he does often.He lives with my 2 older cats & maltese dog & is very well socialised.

He uses his kitty litter, eats wet & dry kitten food, loves to play with his toys, is vaccinated, wormed, microchipped & is just a great little kitten.

Cleo

Cleo

DLH - female

Cleo is a beautiful, de sexed, blue torti, long haired female cat with golden colored eyes. She came to me with a litter of 3 babies, all who have been rehomed now.

She is very verbal and affectionate gentle girl. She will tap you on the shoulder in the morning to wake you up for breakfast.

She is a very quiet and well behaved indoor cat.

Cleo always has used the kitty litter, not fussy about which litter she uses.

Cleo only eats dry food (so no need to buy messy wet cat food).

She is fine left alone indoors by herself for the day.

Low maintenance cat.

Cleo gets along well with cats and dogs

She would make a lovely companion to another friendly cat.

Tinkerbell

Tinkerbell

Australian x Welsh Pony - female

Tinkerbell is currently on hold until her medical condition is sorted out

Unfortunately Tinkerbell has a tooth abscess. She's had 2 lots of x rays done to determine what the cause of the small abscess on her face and after review from a specialist in Canberra it has been confirmed that this is the cause. The vet quoted $1600 for the operation required. Tinkerbell is currently on anti-biotics awaiting the surgery.

Update 13/6/14: Vet specialist has identified a split tooth which is looking like the cause of the problem. It is suspected she'll undergo the surgery in the next 2-3 weeks and after living with this problem for over a year we hope we can see her pain free in a months time.

Django

Django

Shetland Gelding - male

Django is a playful pony who loves the company of other horses. He’d had limited training before he came to us, however with daily handling he has shown a calm and trainable nature. He’s still a little head shy, however is friendly and not difficult to catch, handle or lunge. Django needs an experienced owner who will continue his education, once educated he would suit children as a 2nd mount, or could be trained to harness. He would also suit being a childs led pony, or a companion pony to other horses.
