Sammy

Sammy

DSH - male - 5 months and 3 weeks

These glorious ginger kitties were surrendered into our care by an elderly lady who rescued their mum and three more siblings. She nurtured and loved them, but had neither the finances nor the room to keep them all.

It was only when the carer brought them home that she realised the boys are almost identical – in fact, it is only recently that we’ve managed to distinguish between them as Sammy has an S-shape embedded in his fur. These boys may enjoy a new home together, but will also be happy to find a fabulous furever home all to themselves.

Both kitties were socialised initially within the rescuer’s wider family, including children, but social lockdown put an end to that and it did take a week or two for these guys to venture far. However, they chose the carer’s bedroom for their early retreat so clearly they are people pussycats, and they are now making up for lost time. They both love their chow.

Sammy is quite inquisitive and has proved the more adventurous of the two despite being the smaller. He loves a good play and romp with his brother and toys.

He has become quite affectionate, especially at bed time when he decides to clamber all over his carer asking for head scratches; he has a lot of purring going on. Sammy does like to play with toys with his brother, and loves a good chase around the house. At this stage, he’s still cautious of people walking around, but we are seeing improvement with further socialisation.

Both kitties are beautiful long boys when they stretch out! At times they both decide to lie across the carer’s legs – not sure whether the carer or they are the most uncomfortable with this arrangement, but certainly they insist it’s a really good thing.

We believe both Sammy and Oscar will take a little time to settle in, and will need patience and love from their new families. But the reward will be great. These kitties must be indoor only.

Sammy and Oscar have been microchipped, vaccinated and will be desexed prior to adoption. They are located in Colyton.

If you are interested in learning more about or providing a home to one or both of these lovely boys, please contact his carer.

NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols.

Oscar

DSH - male - 5 months and 3 weeks

However, they chose the carer’s bedroom for their early retreat so clearly they are people pussycats, and they are now making up for lost time. They both love their chow.

Oscar is the more cautious of the two, and is taking his time to venture out into the wider world except he does love to ‘share’ (perhaps better described as take over) the bed with his carer at night. Oscar loves a good head scratch, too, when his human comes down to his level on the floor.

Oscar also likes to play with toys, ’specially empty toilet rolls, with his brother, and loves a good chase around the house. At this time, this is sadly mostly during the night with multiple necessary cat naps under the bed during the day. His new family will have to work on his feline circadian rhythms!

Like his brother, he’s still not adjusted to folk walking around, but doesn’t move far away so it’s a work in progress. He just hasn’t had much experience of being towered over by humans, but certainly has shown willingness to adjust.

Chilli

Chilli

Domestic Short Hair - male - 1 month and 4 weeks

CHILLI NOW HAS HIS FUREVER HOME LINED UP.
Thank you all for your interest in these kitties.

Hi my name's Chilli and aren't I handsome!

With the face of an angel and the temperament to match I'm a sleek and black bundle of joy.

I'm a spirited and cuddly boy who came into care at 4 weeks old with my 3 cool brothers and teeny-weeny sister and have been having a ball ever since.

I absolutely love dinnertime and will race my siblings to the table. Whether it be my bickies or wet food I am known to inhale anything which is put in front of me and am growing into a healthy boy.

Life is so much fun. I love adventures and getting into kitten mischief with all my siblings although I'm having a bit of a bromance with my brother Clove despite our over enthusiastic rumbles.

When I'm not playing I love to search out my foster mummy for cuddles. She can't resist me when I snuggle into her chin and pat her face with my paws but I never use my claws because I know it's love time.

I will bring so much love and joy to your home.

Chilli is vet-checked, microchipped, vaccinated and flea/worm treated. He will be desexed prior to re-homing and will be available after 17/6/20 approx.

NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols.

Roxy

Roxy

Rottweiller - female - 1 year and 5 months

Roxy came as a stray from Campbelltown pound. She is a 30kgs very energetic dog who is full of love. You could say she has a double personality. She can be this lovely nice dog, quiet and obedient... but that only lasts for a moment. Roxy gets excited about... well pretty much everything and other dogs in particular. In other words, her excitement gets the best of her!
She is smart and responds well to training.
She's only been to the dog park a few times and is still shy and unsure so more socializing with other dogs would be very beneficial.

She is meant to be 1 to 1.5 years old but still acts like a puppy most of the time. She will nip at your hands to play, bite her own tail as a way to throw a tantrum and is very vocal. Training can make her frustrated and, as a stubborn pup, she will show you how much she disagrees! She is pretty needy and requires attention.

She is very playful with high levels of energy and never ending stamina so she needs a large yard and a very active family. She is always down for playtime!
She wouldn't be suited for a family with young kids as she is pretty clumsy. Teens as a minimum age.

She loves to play fetch and be chased around the garden. She is toilet trained and sleeps indoors all through the night. She is currently living with cats but they are separated. She is curious about them but hasn't shown any aggression.

Her ideal family would not be full time workers and be very active people. They should also be seasoned dog owners (or people who know the breed) and have extensive experience in dog training and confident with dominant dogs.
With the right professional dog training/puppy school and plenty of patience, she will settle down.
With the right owners and training, she will grow into a beautiful and loyal dog always ready for the next adventure.

Roxy has been in foster care since 27 May 2020, for 5 days

Jasper

Jasper

medium coat DSH - male - 2 months

Plump little Jasper came into care with his 3 siblings. He is still nursing with mum for the time being but has started eating kitten mousse recently and it turns out that he loves it!

At the moment he and his siblings are learning to run and jump and Jasper is quite brave, making it to the second tier of the cat scratch tree and then jumping back down. He is a very friendly little kitten and will usually run to the door as soon as he hears it open.

Jasper loves to be held and cuddled or just sit on your leg as you do your work. He has a lot of energy and loves to interact and play with his brothers and sisters, as well as his canine companions. He also enjoys chasing after toys and pushing ping pong balls around the floor.

Jasper would make a wonderful addition to most homes. He will need to be kept indoors.

Jasper is vet-checked, microchipped, vaccinated and flea/worm treated. He will be desexed prior to re-homing.

Still very young, we are currently taking enquiries for this little kitty (or his siblings).

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

Jasper has been in foster care since 11 May 2020, for 3 weeks

Onyx

Onyx

DMH - male - 2 months

Looking for a best friend? Well, meet Onyx! He came into care with his siblings and mum and has thrived and grown into a little fluffy ball of confident energy.

Onyx is super friendly and loves to be held and lightly stroked, especially on his face. He loves his food and can generally be found checking the dishes for leftovers or fighting off a sibling to get to mums milk. Onyx has also happily lived alongside his carer's canine companions.

He will be suited to most families but would prefer a home with another pet that he could interact with.

Onyx is vet-checked, microchipped, vaccinated and flea/worm treated. He will be desexed prior to re-homing.

Wasabi

Wasabi

Domestic Medium Hair - male - 1 month and 4 weeks

WASABI NOW HAS HIS FUREVER HOME LINED UP.
Thanks to you all for your interest in our kitties.

Hello I'm Wasabi. Cool name huh!

I'm a friendly, fluffy and snuggly boy who is confident and full of energy. I came into care at 4 weeks old with my 3 fabulous brothers and tiny sister and have been in my element ever since.

Hanging out with all my siblings is so much fun. I'm up for anything whether it be scaling our scratching pole, chasing my tail or theirs or playing hide n seek in our tunnel. I even love pouncing on my foster sister Roxy who is a Golden Retriever with a big voice but a big old softy.

I'm so easy to please at dinnertime and will eat anything put on the table and lots of it. My table manners do need a little work though as I often need a clean up afterwards but that's no big deal.

I look very similar to my brother Basil, who's my best pal. My foster family regularly mix us up but just so you know my face is a little lighter than his and although he thinks he's better looking I beg to differ.

I also really enjoy spending snuggle time with my foster family, I'm not picky any lap, chest or shoulder will do as long as it comes with lots of kisses and caresses. I've also been known to do my fair share of suckling on them as it makes me so happy and purr like crazy.

You won't be able to resist me once we meet.

Wasabi is vet-checked, microchipped, vaccinated and flea/worm treated. He will be desexed prior to re-homing and will be available after 16/6/20 approx.

NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols.
