Pixie

Pixie

DSH - female - 1 year and 5 months

Pixie was fostered together with her teenage mum and 3 siblings, all of whom have found homes.

Pixie has a unique personality; she enjoys exploring, as well as standing at your feet meowing at you and sitting next to you on the lounge. She’s used to being handled by young children, although she does take a little time to adjust initially.

She can be a little skittish if there is too much loud noise and sudden movement so older/no children would be best.

When happy, Pixie can get ecstatic - not only purring loudly, but sticking her rear in the air, and rolling over to expose her belly to you …. And is known to drool with bliss!

Pixie is already de-sexed and microchipped, and is up to date on all her vet requirements.

She’s currently homed with two other cats.

If you’d like to arrange to meet Pixie at her Campbelltown foster home, please contact her carer, Imaan.

Pixie has been in foster care since 13 November 2017, for 1.3 years

Penny

Penny

dsh - female - 1 year

Penny's personality is the most gentle I've ever come across in a kitty. Even though she has been with us for only a short time, she purrs 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 8 months

Jill

Jill

Domestic Medium Hair - female - 1 year and 11 months

Jill came into foster care in Sept 2018 as a young, pregnant cat from the pound. She raised some beautiful kittens (Cloud, Tabitha & Whiskey) who are now available for adoption, and it's time this young lady found her own loving home as well!

She has a beautiful, silky, soft coat (like her daughter, Cloud) which will require regular grooming to keep it free from matting and knots. While Jill has been in foster care around other cats and dogs, she would likely prefer a quieter home with a devoted human or two, who will be patient and gentle with her while she settles in and gets used to you.

Jill comes with a kitten-care package, fully vaccinated, desexed, microchipped and up to date with flea and worming treatment. As with all animals adopted from DCH Animal Adoptions, she comes with a 2 week trial to give her time to adapt to her new home, which may be extended by arrangement to ensure the best home is found for her.

As of 17/2/19, Jill has just arrived at her new foster carer's home in Randwick and is being exposed to new noises, smells, and other animals as part of her desensitisation - things that she missed out on in her mysterious earlier life. Once settled she would absolutely love some cuddles from her potential new family. To arrange a visit, please contact us.

Jill has been in foster care since 12 September 2018, for 6 months

Amelia

Amelia

Domestic Short Hair - Medium H - female - 2 years and 9 months

Amelia came from a Sydney pound as a scared girl. She arrived shortly after having kittens but her kittens were not brought in with her.

She is a lovely girl who will purr and want pats but only in small amounts. She can be a little too playful for her own good and can get a little rough with her feline and canine foster family.

She is not good around dogs or other animals so is best in a quite home without other animals where she can rule the house. She would love access to an outside cat enclosure.

She has a lovely possum type fluffy tail.

Amelia had cat flu when she arrived in our care, but it has has been fully treated with medication.
She has been desexed, and has received 2 vaccinations. She is microchipped and wormed
