Cats in our Care

These cats and kittens have been rescued from various pounds and shelters by volunteer foster carers who provide the cat with a safe haven until they can be permanently rehomed. Cats are located throughout Sydney, Australia.

Please note that descriptions of breed, age and size are given in good faith and are based on assessment of the cat's features, together with veterinary opinion. We cannot guarantee the age and breed of any cats listed.

All cats listed come desexed, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.

Kittens will only be rehomed when over 8 weeks of age and over 1kg in weight.

Jack and Jake

Jack and Jake

DSH - male - 2 years and 8 months

Loving, easy going lads💙

Jack and Jake scratch up the pole,

And lick away at their kitty bowl

They’re chill little men who love to play,

And cuddle their people night and day

Easy-going kitties who are great with folks,

It’s only snuggles and purrs from these two blokes

They’re great with dogs, big and small,

Cats, kittens, rabbits, they love them all

They’re free to go out, and get some air,

But definitely need their human there

Rest assured, they’re the best you can get,

Especially since they come as a perfect little set!

Medical notes
Due to ingrown lashes, they both require someone who can commit to cleaning their eyes and adding moisturising eye drops twice a day to keep them comfortable.

However, this is a super easy task, and since they are both totally relaxed and used to this routine, it shouldn’t take longer than a minute or two.

With their current care routine, the boys have been improving exponentially and if kept up, we don't currently foresee any further treatment or concerns.

They have already been de-sexed, microchipped, and their vaccinations are up to date.

If you think you are the special loving person/s to provide a furever home to these two lovely boys, please contact Jake and Jack’s carer, Jasmin - on 0424 738 236 - to arrange a meet and greet at their foster home.

***many thanks go to David and Michael who have helped contribute to Jacks additional vet fees, we have still spent an additional $900 on vet fees and sponsorship help would be very appreciated.***

Jack and Jake has been in foster care since 15 January 2017, for 2.5 years

Penny

Penny

dsh - female - 1 year and 4 months

Penny's personality is the most gentle I've ever come across in a kitty. Even after she'd been with us for only a short time, she purred very fast and very loudly when picked up. She is generally shy with new people though, so her furever family may have to give her a couple of weeks to settle, to allow her to gain the confidence that she's safe and loved. Penny does love playing with toys, and happily eats whatever cat food is on offer.

Although she doesn’t realise it herself, Penny walks with a very unusual gait. (See Video). After a thorough vet check-up, including x-rays, the vet has ruled out any problems with her bones and joints. Instead the vet thinks it may be neurological, and in any event, thankfully, it causes no pain and Penny is perfectly happy the way she is!

Penny does have strength in those back legs, as she loves to stand up on them so she can see what might be of interest up the bench - taking her full body weight. Fortunately, she hasn’t learnt yet to jump up on the furniture, but ,when she decides to chase her feline foster friends, Penny just launches herself straight at them from her sleeping position.

Penny has enjoyed being an indoor kitty to date, and because she doesn’t realise her legs won’t run fast enough to get away from dangerous situations, her new furever home must also be indoors. She does love her cat buddies, and is also living harmoniously with her carer’s large cat friendly dogs, so a family (be it large, a couple or a single person) with existing potential playmates may well find her a wonderful companion. Because Penny is very gentle, however, any animal friends should not play rough.

Penny is microchipped, and her vaccinations are up to date. Her adoption fee includes de-sexing.

If you would like to meet this special kitty at her foster home in Glenhaven , please call her carer Jeni to arrange a time.

Penny has been in foster care since 20 July 2018, for 1 year

Audrey

Audrey

DSH - female - 9 months and 1 weeks

Named after the elegant Audrey Hepburn, she is a stunning beauty. With fabulous markings all over, perhaps she should have been called Leopard! Particularly as she is also bold, playful and active.

Audrey came into care from a Pound at 6 weeks old, and very quickly appreciated and adapted to her new surroundings. She has lived alongside numerous other foster cats and kittens, and happily played and snuggled with them all, so would make a great companion for other felines.

Of course, Audrey loves her humans too; an ultra affectionate and no fuss kitty. She’s not keen on being picked up, but instead will jump onto your lap and head butt and rub her face all over you while you pat her.

Audrey has been raised as an indoor-only kitten, so her new home needs to be indoor only too. Undemanding, she would be a loving companion for a couple, a single or a family in return for your loving care. Given her busy foster environment, though, she probably would be lonely if left alone for long periods.

Audrey is microchipped, vaccinated and de-sexed.

She is welcoming visits from possible furever families at her foster home in Hoxton Park. Please call or text her carer, Karen, to arrange a meet and greet.

Audrey has been in foster care since 24 November 2018, for 8 months

Ivy

Ivy

Domestic Short Hair - female - 11 months

Ivy was born in care to Polly, along with her sister Rosebud.  Both Mum and sis have already found their own furever homes, so Ivy is hoping she'll be lucky soon, too.

Ivy and Rosebud both had a difficult start to life and faced some obstacles.

Ivy  is a little free spirited and would be suited as an outside cat or, perhaps, a yard cat so she can roam.  She loves to explore and enjoy the outside world. 

She has been vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and desexed.

Located near Windsor NSW.

Ivy has been in foster care since 15 December 2018, for 7 months

Polly

Polly

Domestic Short hair - female - 2 years and 9 months

Beautiful Polly was found in the roof of a horse supply building together with her young kittens just before Christmas last year, and fortunately was surrendered to DCH to allow her to raise them in a safe environment.

Polly has proven to be a sweet and affectionate feline companion who loves spending time with her human family, and lives very happily alongside the resident dog .

Polly just demands you give her love and affection; she will great you at the door with plenty of rubs and purrs. She loves cuddles, and a good chat with her humans….. and, although now over two years old, she very proudly shows of her tricks!

After motherhood, she now wants to be spoilt and loved by her very own furever human family in return for her enduring love. She is an indoor/outdoor cat, but is always taken indoors at night so she can cuddle up.

Polly is microchipped, vaccinated and already de-sexed.

If you’d like to arrange to meet the lovely Polly at her foster home near Windsor, please contact her carer, Debbie.

Polly has been in foster care since 15 December 2018, for 7 months

Diesel

Diesel

shd - male - 8 months and 3 weeks

Black cats bring you luck!
Diesel is an attractive, shiny black haired boy, although he is a really a red head in disguise - when basking in the sunlight ginger stripes shine through! He was rescued along with a ‘lucky dip’ of another 8 kittens which had found their way to the Pound. He now lives in a foster home with 10 kittens and gets along well with all of them.

He loves his fur friends to the extent he hugs and mothers the other cats in the house. Diesel can’t wait to join in with any pats going, and head butts humans and felines alike. In fact, he also rather likes to eat their food and use their litter box.

Diesel is ultra affectionate with people. Quite a character, he’s outgoing and vocal and, strangely, loves to play in water. Other quirks include drinking tea with a drop of milk – out of a mug, and that he sometimes forgets to put his tongue back in his mouth. He does,also, love his food.

Diesel would bring entertainment and joy to the family, single or couple who adopt him. He is an indoor-only kitty, and would no doubt love some feline company and maybe a dog too.

Diesel is microchipped, vaccinated and de-sexed.
He is welcoming visits from possible furever families at his foster home in Hoxton Park. Please call or text his carer, Karen, to arrange a meet and greet.

Diesel has been in foster care since 29 December 2018, for 6 months

Sage

Sage

Domestic Short Hair - female - 3 years and 6 months

Sage (mumma cat)- a beautiful natured cat with the best house manners.

She has been a lovely mum to all her kittens and even adopted Cheeto and Moscato into her 6 week old litter.

Its estimated she is at least 3 years but is very healthy

She does have a lump on her stomach, near the lower nipples. It has been vet assessed and samples taken. However nothing showed up only inflammation cells.

She is very underweight but surprisingly has put on 500g since being in care. It’s a slow process but we are getting there.

Will be Microchipped, vaccianated, wormed and desexed.

Please contact us for any further information or to arrange a meet and greet.

Sage has been in foster care since 12 January 2019, for 6 months

Charlotte

Charlotte

Domestic Short Hair - female - 11 months and 1 week

This is Charlotte: she is a striking Tortoiseshell little girl who loves affection and is beautiful inside and out. Initially, shy with new people, she’ll come running over to be near her humans once she has warmed to them.

She has been living with a vet nurse as her foster carer, so is in tip top condition… and has happily been around children of 5 and 2 years old. Charlotte does enjoy playing with her toys with them all, which also has helped to gain her trust. Oh, and she loves her food.

Charlotte would fit very comfortably with a family with children who are not too boisterous, but equally could share her love with singles or couples since she is quite independent and can find things to keep her occupied (like the laundry basket in the photo!). Charlotte has been raised as an indoor only kitty, so her furever home needs to be indoor only too. She is untested with other animals as yet.

Charlotte is microchipped, de-sexed and up to date with her vaccinations. Please contact her carer, Heather, to arrange a meet and greet in her Castle Hill foster home.

Charlotte has been in foster care since 16 March 2019, for 4 months

Oreo

Oreo

Domestic - female - 6 months and 1 weeks

Oreo is a chubby girl with sweet personality.

She loves chasing around with her siblings and her favourite toy is a teaser. She is a little bit shy with people at first, but will definitely come out of her shell when she is comfortable.

She will love another friend in her new home, however as long as there is a teaser to play with, she won’t mind at all.

As she has very strong attachment with her siblings, it will be ideal if she could go to a forever loving home with one of her siblings.

Preferably to be an indoor cat.

Located in Hurstville

Adoption fee includes Microchipping, Vaccination, Worming and Desexing.

Oreo has been in foster care since 16 March 2019, for 4 months
