DSH - female - 3 years

Meet Bianca, a charming and affectionate feline looking for her forever home! This lovely lady has had a remarkable journey, learning to trust and love after a slow start. Now, she is thriving with her foster carers and is ready to find a peaceful and loving environment to call her own.

Bianca is a sweet and loving cat who adores receiving selected pats and cuddles, but on her own terms. She appreciates gentle interactions and prefers to set the pace for affection. While she took a while to adjust to new experiences, her foster carers' patience and understanding have helped her become more confident and comfortable. Now, she sleeps peacefully in their beds every night, eagerly awaiting her nightly cuddles and pats.

In terms of temperament, Bianca is incredibly easygoing and undemanding. She is a low-maintenance cat that doesn't require constant attention. She would fit perfectly in a quiet home where she can unwind and enjoy a peaceful atmosphere. Due to her preference for tranquillity, it's best for Bianca to be in a household without younger children, as their exuberance and noise may overwhelm her.

Health-wise, Bianca has undergone two sets of dental surgeries to address a medical condition called Gingivostomatitis. Unfortunately, the treatment involved extracting most of her teeth. However, this procedure has had a tremendous positive impact on her overall well-being, allowing her true personality to shine. Now, free from the discomfort of her condition, Bianca is a happy and content cat, ready to embrace a fulfilling life with a loving family.

As an indoor-only cat, Bianca is accustomed to the safety and comforts of an indoor environment. She enjoys having a cozy spot to relax, observe her surroundings, and indulge in her favorite pastimes, such as sleeping on the bed.

If you are seeking a gentle and undemanding companion who will bring joy and tranquillity into your life, Bianca may be the perfect match for you. By providing her with a quiet and loving home, you will have the opportunity to witness her blossom into the affectionate and content cat she has become. Are you ready to open your heart and home to this special girl?

Bianca has been in foster care since 22 November 2020, for 2.8 years



DSH - female - 3 years and 7 months


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 2.8 years

Domestic Short Hair - male - 1 year and 11 months

Kovu is a shy and gentle soul who loves stretching out in sunbeams while watching the birds out the window. Big snuggly beds are his go-to spot for rest and relaxation, and he thoroughly enjoys a good chin scratch.

When it comes to food, Kovu is a big fan! His love for mealtime is evident by the spirited and adorable meows coming from this usually quiet cat. Despite his reserved nature, he has playful moments wrestling and chasing his younger foster brothers around or catching wiggly toys with us humans. Although as an adult cat, Kovu is past the super energetic kitten stage, making him a low-maintenance pet.

We have been working on building his confidence and he is now ready to find a new loving and patient family who will give him time to adjust until he is ready to provide you with endless love and devotion. His affectionate nature makes him an ideal companion for someone who appreciates and values peaceful moments together.

If you're looking for a soothing presence in your life, Kovu might be the perfect addition to your family.

He is currently using wood pellet cat litter and thrives on a balanced diet of Raw Meow and Ziwi Peak, he has been raised as an indoor cat and so will need to go into an INDOOR ONLY home.

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

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.

    DSH - male - 1 year and 10 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. While Harlow has access outside via a cat run in his foster home, he is looking for forever family that can offer him the protection of growing up inside (or safety outside access).

    Harlow has been desexed, completed his kitten vaccinations and is litter trained and will be up to date with her parasite protection - Harlow 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.

    Harlow has been in foster care since 17 March 2022, for 1.5 years



    Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year and 8 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 remove her teeth and fix the issue. Her vet fees have come to over $3,000. If you can assist by sponsoring some of these additional costs please click on the links below
