Rehomed and Stories

The dogs, cats and horses featured below were fostered through DCH Animal Adoptions and have now found permanent loving new homes.

Qiana (now Annie)

Qiana (now Annie)

DSH - female

.Update 16th April:
Qiana is currently on a 2 week trial adoption with a lovely family who have had cats for over 30 years.


Qiana is Desexed, Vaccinated and looking for someone who wants a smart, confident, interactive cat to be part of their family!!

Why don’t you and your family come and meet Qiana for yourself! You don’t have to decide on the day and there is no obligation to adopt 😻

UPDATE: February 2024: Qiana is thriving (she greets people at the door), and also pretty clever, and I’ve had to be creative to keep her stimulated. New toys, plus a regular harness walk in my secure backyard, and she loves to play in the new planter box of catnip & catgrass.

UPDATE October 2023: As I know her well, I have started taking Qiana for walks in my backyard on a harness... and she loves it! Being very confident, Qiana is doing really well with loud noises so far (traffic, mowers, choppers), and is very curious about everything. Most importantly though, she will give eye contact and come to me when I call her (still on leash, of course).

Qiana (pronounced Keeyahna, and meaning soft and silky), suffered from severe cat flu as a kitten, when she first came into care at 4 months old. This tiny little kitten was so very sick and lethargic, but she had a big will to survive and fortunately, her condition improved and stabilised.

As she was handled so much when sick, Qiana is confident and friendly around people. This tiny little 3.7kg kitty is also very chatty and makes a funny “M…ow” to get your attention!

If she gets stressed, Qiana may sneeze more & her left eye may water which just requires wiping with water/saline (and she doesn’t mind). In the meantime, Qiana does occasionally sneeze, (which is not contagious to people, dogs or vaccinated cats!) but otherwise, she’s the life of the party!

This gorgeous girl is so gentle and loving and will make a perfect companion. Qiana loves physical contact (as long as she is not restrained), and will happily sit and purr on your chest, shoulder or lap for hours, without complaint.

If you love watching a movie and snuggling, with no annoying chats, then Qiana is your girl! If you enjoy pottering in your garden, Qiana would love to be by your side on a harness, enjoying the fresh air and catching (prey) insects!

Qiana's personality would suit any home with 1 or 2 people, or a busier family home with (cat-safe) children. She is very interactive and will follow you around the house to be where the "action" is!

Qiana always seems to be very keen to meet other cats/kittens, and she makes an effort to be friends with all - but she can also get jealous for your attention. Qiana is also friendly with our large Golden Retrievers, and has no fear of their size (40kg). She is quite the social butterfly with animals!

The reduced $125 adoption fee (as she is over 12months), includes:

  • Microchipping,
  • Worming/flea-treatment,
  • Vaccination,
  • Desexing
  • So she lives her best and longest life, Qiana must also be an Indoor Only cat, unless in a secure, enclosed catio/outdoor area, or supervised and secured on a harness when outside).

    Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in arranging a visit.
    Please let me know if you’ve owned cats before and why you’re interested in Qiana.
    PLEASE NOTE: I no longer receive phone calls/messages from unknown mobiles but I will call you when I receive your email enquiry.

  • If you are renting, please ensure that you have written approval to keep a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.
  • You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal, and, for a kitten, also be prepared to look after it for up to 20years!
  • In the current economic climate, please also consider annual vet fees and future costs before committing to adopt 😻

  • Qiana (now Annie) was adopted on 16 June 2024 after 1.8 years in foster care
