Marcy

Marcy

female

Macy is the largest of the two girls from her litter. She is a beautiful brown leaf tabby, stocky girl with a bob tail. She has chocolate brown coloring under her feet, a black outline around her nose and eyes and almost a perfect 'M shape stripe for Macy' on her forehead. She is very social with humans. She rushes to greet you in the morning, calls out to you when she is looking for you, jumps up on your lap when she wants to smooch and if you are lucky, gives you little gentle nibbly love bites on your chin. If you don't pat her when she jumps on your lap, she taps you with her foot to remind you. At the end of the day she is happy to sit for ages on your lap with her front legs crossed. She enjoys the company of other cats/kittens, large and small dogs so caution must be used when introducing her to new doggie friends as she knows no fear of them. She is a very confident girl who is not afraid of a bit of rough play with her buddy who is a kitten 6 months older than her. She is fully litter trained and clean.

Lego

Lego

Kelpie - male

Lego is such a gorgeous dog, a real gentleman

an old soul, very level headed for a puppy. He loves other dogs and plays all day long with his doggy friends and his toys. He is very appropriate when meeting new dogs and would suit most other dogs as a mate. Lego is very good with chickens and cats and is learning to behave with sheep and goats. Lego is very timid until he knows he can trust you. In our case it has only taken 48 hours. He is the kind of dog who will bond very tightly to his owner. Lego will need plenty of stimulation and involvement with his family, he would love another dog to play with or someone at home a fair bit. Lego will need to be housed very securely until he has bonded with his new family. In just the past 48 hours since his arrival he has really grown in confidence with us and is already proving to be a good watch dog. Lego is allowed indoors and has been sleeping indoors all night with no accidents. Lego would love a family who can show him how great the world can beand put some effort in to exposing him to many different situations. He will need someone who understands how intelligent Kelpies are and that they need stimulation in order to be a well behaved canine citizen. Lego is wonderful with children and is currently living with a 6 year old who lies all over him and is handling him in all sorts of ways. He will leave care very well adjusted with kids

hence his name as he sticks to his 6 year old human like 'lego'. Lego has had no basic training but hopefully this will change while in care. As Lego has only been in care a short while please feel free to contact us for further and updated information.

Lego was adopted on 21 August 2011 after 3 weeks in foster care

DSH - male

Kokoda is easily one of the most affectionate, playful and funniest kittens I have ever rescued. He loves running around and playing with his siblings as well as the cat toys and when he's done, he loves nothing better than a cuddle and a sleep in your lap, purring the whole time. Kokoda gets along extremely well with his siblings and the other cats I have here and has absolutely no fear of my dogs. Kokoda is a good eater and is litter trained. If you're looking for an affectionate and friendly kitten then please come and meet Kokoda.

Chocolate

Chocolate

DSH - male

Chocolate is a funny, lovable boy who will keep you entertained with his antics. He loves to play and gets on well with other cats and gentle, cat friendly dogs. Chocolate will follow you around the house and he loves to cuddle on your lap at the end of a hard day playing. Chocolate likes company and would fit into his forever home with existing pets or a playmate to spend time with. He would be suited to older children who don't mind rough play or a family without children who can spend quality time with him. Chocolate can be left alone and he will amuse himself but be prepared for lots of cuddles and kisses when you come home. Chocolate is an indoor cat but he would be suited to both indoor/outdoor as he gets bigger.
