Tiny

Tiny

Mixed breed - mare - 16 years and 11 months

Tiny is a red roan, approx 13.3 hh.
She has been through a lot: starvation, abuse and neglect. Happily, she has blossomed in DCH's care, and will continue to gain trust in people in the right home.

Tiny has loads of personality! She is very smart and will learn quickly from a patient, kind and understanding handler. She can be a bit feisty in the paddock and is dominant with other horses and around food.

Tiny would suit an experienced home with someone who has time to do groundwork with her, she loves attention and being mentally challenged. 

Tiny has been in care for over a year. She requires an experienced home to further her education.

 

 

 

Tiny has been in foster care since 07 October 2018, for 4.4 years

Jessica

Jessica

DSH - female - 3 years and 1 month

TEENIE TINY JESSICA:

Jessica has experienced continual problems with her breathing following a bout of cat flu - as a result, she has been a regular visitor to her vet, and had to undergo antibiotic treatment and a couple of operations in order to try to resolve the issues. Unfortunately, her treatment is, and will be, ongoing until she is all better. The vet feels she's as good as she's going to get in her current environment (with lots of other cats about) and thinks she may well improve in a new home with less cats - possibly a cat that is allergic to other cats?? Anyway, for now she does have noisy breathing and it may or may not improve but we'd love her to find a home with a caring person willing to give her that chance.

Little Jessica wandered into our lives and we have been blessed with having her share her time with us. There was no sign of her Mum or siblings when she came up to us. She was starving. She enjoys dry food the most, but to give her a rounded diet, we get her to eat wet food as well. She's a big eater for such a little cat and doesn't seem very particular about what brand of food she eats. Currently she's on kitten food and she should be kept on this diet until she reaches an adult age. She'll probably remain looking like a young cat because of her little size.

Jessica has the most pretty sweet face. It's so petite.

Jessica has long little legs, and is a very small cat. She has grown since she's been with us, but I don't think that she will ever reach the size of an average cat.

She loves playing with other cats in our household, and because she is so tiny she's able to win most games of hide and seek because she knows she can slip into areas that others have no chance of ever fitting into. She's definitely got that game down to a fine art.

Although not currently a lap cat, it's probably only because she always seems to be on the move. She purrs and purrs when patted or picked up.

She is used to large dogs around her and isn't fazed at all by their presence.

Toys like a stick with a ribbon tied on the end is the sort of toy she loves the best. Plus she's highly excited with trying to catch a lazer light that is moved across the floor.

Jessica comes with her own designer cat carrier. I don't think I'll ever have the privilege of fostering such a tiny cat again so we've decided we should send the little girl off to her new home with her own classy cat carrier.

Jessica is microchipped, desexed and up to date with her vaccinations.

The vet fees associated with her treatment are large, and getting larger. Any contribution towards these would be very welcome.
Thank you*Thanks to Lorraine for fully sponsoring Jessica's vet fees to date. Her fees to date have now been covered.*

Jessica has been in foster care since 22 December 2020, for 2.3 years

Momo

Momo

Domestic - female - 5 years and 5 months

Momo is such a sweet kitty. She has a quirky personality and loves to follow you around to see what you are doing. She loves playing with bouncy toys and laser pointers and cardboard boxes!

Sometimes she behaves like a dog and likes to roll around on the balcony or outside! She loves her supervised outside time and napping in the sun. If there is a sunny window no doubt Momo would be napping on it!

She is very treat and food driven which is good for training. She loves to greet you when you come home with meows and rubs on your legs wanting pats. She also loves when you come home with groceries. She likes to see what goodies you got and if there are any for her!

She eats whikas dry food in the mornings and wet food at night. Every now and then she will have chicken neck or some boiled chicken breast.

If you're sitting in the loungeroom she'll sit with you, if you're going to bed she'll snuggle on the bed too. She loves a good cuddly soft blanket! She loves scratches especially behind the ears and under her chin. She'll always find a weird position to sleep in.

Like with any new cat she will take a little bit of time to adjust. She is very keen to explore and play though. She doesn't like loud noises. Sometimes she will want to be left alone to do her own thing. She's not really a fan of fish. She prefers chicken or beef!

She is litter box trained.
She is currently desexed and fully vaccinated and will need her next vaccination in March 2022,

Medical Notes:
Momo has received an acne wash in the past for acne on her chin. No other known medical issues.

She will be best suited to a home where she is the only cat in the home and where there are no young or noisy kids.

This is an assisted rehoming / Private Listing.

Located in Eastwood, NSW

Muffin

Muffin

Domestic Long Hair - male - 1 year and 2 months

Sponsorship required: Muffin has a Grade 4/5 heart murmur and needs an ultrasound to determine what is causing it which will cost $1000.

Muffin has been diagnosed with a heart murmur which means he will require quarterly check ups at the vet and may have to be on regular medication when he is older. He is a sweet, beautuful boy who is deserving of his own special family. Muffin plays and runs just like any other kitten. He loves to be cuddled and kissed and has the most gorgeous long blue/grey coat. He would really thrive in a family of his own.

Muffin has received his 1st and 2nd kitten vaccinations. He is microchipped and up to date with his flea and worm treatment. Muffin is eating Royal Canin Mother and Babycat dry food and uses crystal cat litter.

Please ring or text his carer if you are interested in adopting Muffin, and are able to provide for any special needs he may require in the future.

Angel

Angel

Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year and 3 months

Angel is a quiet and gentle cat who once comfortable with her humans is affectionate and friendly. Angel has a gorgeous and wonderfully soft black and white coat and a beautiful personality to match. Angel is happy to sleep on the end of her foster mums bed of an evening, but she knows when it is breakfast time as Angel is very food motivated :)

While shy on first meeting new humans, Angel will truly be the companion of your dreams and she will love you to death once she has settled into her new home and family. She is a very gentle cat and could live happily among other animals or children. Angel is such a sweetheart and will continue to grow into an even more amazing cat.

Angel has been raised with other foster kittens, as well as the resident cats, dogs and bunny and she happily co-habits with them all. While Angel has access outside via a cat run in her foster home, she is looking for forever family that can offer her the protection of growing up inside (or safety outside access).

Angel has been desexed, has completed her kitten vaccinations and is litter trained and will be up to date with her parasite protection - Angel is ready for adoption now.

As we receive a lot of enquiries for our kittens, please include relevant details about yourself and your home/other pets, to be considered.

If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

You must be over 18yrs old and an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident to adopt an animal from DCH.

Angel has been in foster care since 17 February 2022, for 1.1 years

Harlow

Harlow

DSH - male - 1 year and 4 months

Harlow is a truly handsome boy, and while quite shy on meeting new people once he is comfortable, he is such a sweety and rampages through the house. Harlow was rescued from a community cat colony and was sick when he first came into care and as such, he was wary on meeting new people and situations.

Now that Harlow has settled into his foster home, he can usually be found asleep on his foster mum's desk while she works from home or sleeping in a sunny spot in the cat run. At night he is usually found snuggled up in bed seeking company.

Although Harlow is a very affectionate cat with his foster mum, he will need a special family that will let him be a scared and neurotic boy until he has settled into his new home. He is a cat that needs to be given time and space to take things at his own pace and guide the humans when he is ready to give and receive affection; once he is comfortable it is like little switch is flicked and he is affectionate, funny and so so snuggly.

Harlow has been raised with other foster kittens, as well as the resident cats, dogs and bunny and he happily co-habits with them all.

Flash

Flash

DSH - male - 1 year and 3 months

Poor Flash came into care after being found during a storm in an industrial site. He arrived extremely skinny and sopping wet. He was found after meowing at strangers for help and so he found his way into care and he's blossomed into a healthy young man, full of beans and ready for his forever home to come along.

Flash took about 24hrs to trust his foster family but he is the sort that will be a bit spooked by visitors. Once he gets to know you however his true, super friendly nature comes to the fore. He is an affectionate boy who is easy to handle but is generally more interested in playing than getting cuddles (although he will settle on your lap when it suits him so he's not always on the go). He isn't noisy unless he thinks his dinner is late and then he'll greet you with a little meow. He has a SUPER soft lovely tabby coat with spotted belly and he's quite the purrer when he's in a calmer mood.

Flash is a go-getter so not suitable for small apartment living and while he currently lives with primary school age kids and is absolutely fine, it's the adults he tends to bond with most.

Flash gets along really well with other cats and would probably enjoy another young cat to rumble with. He should be ok with dogs once he gets to know them too. He is a great all rounder and will make a wonderful addition to any family after a playful, sweet natured cat who is willing to allow him that initial period to settle into his new home.

Flash has been in foster care since 19 March 2022, for 1 year

Poppy

Poppy

Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year and 2 months

Poppy was found by a good Samaritan and handed into a vet clinic before finding her way into care with DCH.

She is a gentle, sweet girl and gets along well with the other resident kitties.

She loves a belly rub and does a cute forward roll at her carer's feet when she wants attention.

She's not too keen on being picked up but is happy to settle down on her carer's lap for a cuddle and to snuggle up to her carer at bedtime.

She also enjoys watching fish videos on YouTube.

She is still hesitant when meeting people for the first time but that doesn't tend to last very long and just means that a little patience will be needed when she moves to her new home.

Poppy has had to deal with a number of allergy issues but these are now settling down and she is ready to move to her furever home although her allergies do mean that she has to be fed particular foods.

Poppy would suit a quieter home without small children where she can gets lots of attention when she needs it.

Poppy is vet checked, microchipped, vaccinated and desexed and is looking for an indoors only home to keep her safe and secure.

Poppy has suffered from gum disease and wasn't eating due to mouth pain. She has had to have surgery to clean her teeth and fix the issue. Her vet fees have come to $1,009. If you can assist by sponsoring some of these additional costs please click on the links below

Poppy has been in foster care since 26 March 2022, for 11 months
