Bobby

Bobby

Manx - male - 2 years

Bobby is looking for a new home after being surrendered by his owners.

Bobby likes to walk around the house as though he is boss, he is not shy at all

He has an obsession with jumping out in front of you and running off to then come and grab your ankles for a quick nibble (very cheeky).

He needs a large home where he can play and explore. He gets bored easily so needs a home where he can get lots of attention. He is a bit of an escape artist to needs a secure home.

Bobby is probably best placed into a home with no young children or any dogs.

He will take several weeks to adjust to any new home any may growl and lash out until he is comfortable and settled.

Information about the Manx cat breed and their personalities can be found here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manx_cat

Located in Quakers Hill.

Bobby has been in foster care since 27 October 2018, for 2 years

He loves love including lots of cuddles and belly rubs. He has a lot of love to give and would make a great addition to any family.

He was hit by a car and received a small break to his back leg. It has healed on its own. The vets have completed Xrays and have decided that no surgical actions were needed at the moment. Weasley may develop a small limp or early onset of arthritis later in life due to the injury.

Thomas

Thomas

Domestic Short Hair - male - 2 months and 2 weeks

Hi, I am Thomas and I’m in foster care with my brother, Toulouse who has his own profile on the website. We are both looking for a furever home – together would be nice, but not essential – we really just want a loving family, perhaps with some furry friends for us!

Thomas is a lovely fluffy boy, broad faced with a stocky build; his real stand out feature is his beautiful big eyes. He has a soft playful side and a loud contented purrrrrrrr. Thomas is happy to have a cuddle and sleep near people, but prefers to find a quiet corner or cuddle up with Toulouse.

Both brothers love their people, and
• Playing together - chasing, wrestling, rumbling, balls with bells, mice, toes and fluffy toys.
• Exploring - climbing, sneaking, hiding, climbing legs, and wriggling behind furniture, windows and beds.
• Technology - walking on screens and keyboards, sitting in front of screens, and Thomas even likes playing chase the mouse on the iPad!!!!! A perfect work from home companion….?

If the brothers go to separate homes, Thomas would love a family with children and other animals and lots of cuddles and play. He will provide his new family with lots of affection and fun times. He is an indoor only kitty.

Thomas has been microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee includes de-sexing.

If you are interested in learning more about this lovely ginger ninja, or wish to visit him at his foster home in Winmalee, please email his foster carer.

Thomas has been in foster care since 10 October 2020, for 3 weeks

Toulouse

Toulouse

Domestic Short Hair - male - 2 months and 2 weeks

Hi, I am Toulouse and I’m in foster care with my brother, Thomas who has his own profile on the website. We are both looking for a furever home – together would be nice, but not essential – we really just want a loving family, perhaps with some furry friends for us!

Toulouse is a slender, sleek and muscular boy, with sharp intelligent eyes. He has a fantastic purr. He is learning that a pat and cuddle are wonderful. Toulouse loves to find a quiet warm spot for a cat nap with Thomas or solo. He can be a little OTT when he wrestles with Thomas.

Both brothers love their people, and
• Playing together - chasing, wrestling, rumbling, balls with bells, mice, toes and fluffy toys.
• Exploring - climbing, sneaking, hiding, climbing legs, and wriggling behind furniture, windows and beds.
• Technology - walking on screens and keyboards and being mesmerised by the screen

If the brothers go to separate homes, Toulouse would thrive within a peaceful family with other cats, and with the patience and lots of love to help him feel safe as he settles in. We think he will turn into a homely snugglebug. He is an indoor only kitty.

Toulouse has been microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee includes de-sexing.

Mouffy

Mouffy

Domestic Short Hair - female - 2 months and 3 weeks

Mouffy is a sweet little girl who is both shy and rambunctious! She cannot resist chasing cat toys and will play endlessly. If she knows that her human is calm and sitting/lying down, she will climb up for a warm nap. She prefers a pat from behind, rather than a hand coming towards her face.
Quirks include taking cat toys for a walk and suckling on fluffy blankets :)

Mouffy has been in foster care since 06 October 2020, for 4 weeks

  • XENA HAS FOUND HER FOREVER HOME & IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD FOR ADOPTION

  • Indoor Only Cat

    Xena had a pretty tough start as a kitten but thanks to a very caring vet, she is now thriving and ready to find her Forever Family.

    Xena was found in a gutter after presumably, she had been hit by a car. She was taken to Rossmore Veterinary Hospital and, instead of being put down, this affectionate little kitten was given surgery on a broken pelvis and saved! Although she has healed well, Xena does have a “frozen” left hind leg which will be a permanent condition.

    Being the little warrior that she is, Xena has now adjusted to her situation, and instead of dragging her leg, she swings it in front and uses it for balance. At this stage there is no need for her leg to be amputated but this may be a future consideration.

    Xena is very people-focused and extremely affectionate and will meow or use her paw to tap you if you stop paying her attention! She loves to follow us around the house and has no shyness at all when meeting new people.

    Although she initially hissed at the foster kittens on first meeting, it only took days before she was snuggled up with them and happily playing.

    The $200 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. Xena is also litter-trained and socialised with cat-friendly dogs.

    Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting.

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

    Xena has been in foster care since 13 September 2020, for 1 month

    Winter

    Winter

    Domestic - female - 1 year and 3 months

    **On Hold - Reviewing Applications already received**

    Winter is a beautiful and friendly cat who is looking for a loving forever home! She is approx 1 years old and was originally found as a street kitten.

    She is an exceptionally engaging cat - very dog like but without all the maintenance! She likes to know what you are up to and sleep the day away next to you on the sofa (or by the chair if you work from home). She is truly the most affectionate cat I have come across - she LOVES to lick you (you will get a daily grooming session) and runs over to the door to greet you when you get home.

    She is not a noisy cat, and has a very sweet little "chirp" and a gorgeous sqeaky purr (which activates as soon as you pat her).

    She eats almost everything (not fussy on types of cat food but she has been eating raw food and dry kibble) and is quite adventurous with human food (loves blueberries - chasing them and eating them!).

    She is very clean and tidy in her litter box, and is not a scratcher. So far she has not jumped on counters, and she does not disturb things or knock things over.

    Before coming into foster with me, she was rescued up by a kind lady who had three greyhounds - she was fine with this so could possibly live with the right dogs and likely other cats too if an introduction was done right. She is not overly keen on being picked up but loves a good scratch and pat. I guess this is from her time on the street where she was not handled as a young kitten, so just isn't really used to it (you can try but she just jumps out of your arms).

    She enjoys meeting new people and loves to chill with you when you're home (she would like lots of chin scratches if you have time). When you're out, you can find her snoozing the day away in her favourite spots (currently under the desk or spread out on the sofa!).

    And she really is BEAUTIFUL (and knows it!) - she would benefit from someone home more often as she is social and loving.

    Winter has been in foster care since 20 October 2020, for 2 weeks

    dawson

    dawson

    shd - male - 3 years and 2 months

    Dawson is a lovely smoochie muscular boy. He's very verbal (chirps to you to ask for pats), loves to be brushed and enjoys sitting on the lounge with you in front of the tv. He's also expert at head butting you to encourage you to stroke him.

    Dawson is very placid, and can be shy with new people to start off with, but he warmed to his new family quite quickly. This, despite coming into our care as a stray having been patted and fed by a soft hearted animal lover, so we suspect he has lived within a loving family in his earlier life.

    He gets along fine with our resident cats but is still rather timid with our small dogs.

    We believe Dawson would fit in happily with a quiet family who wants a real people pussycat, perhaps with another feline friend available... It may take a little time for him to settle in, but will be well worth your patience.

    Dawson is vet checked, desexed and his vaccinations are up to date. He has also tested negative for Feline Aids. So, he's now raring to find his furever family to love and spoil him in return for his smooches.

    If you would like to learn more about Dawson, or visit him at his Hoxton Park foster home, please contact his carer, Karen.

  • When he came into our care, poor Dawson visited the vet several times to resolve a case of conjunctivities, and to treat swollen foot pads which have now cleared up. Any contribution towards his vet expenses would be gratefully received.
  • dawson has been in foster care since 30 August 2020, for 2 months

    Zac

    Zac

    DSH - male - 1 year and 7 months

    This stunning boy, Zac, has grown up alongside other kittens since he came into our care. Well loved, they had their very own kitty pad to keep them safe from resident foster dogs, but perhaps missed out on the hustle and bustle of home life. The last of the three kittens, Zac has now moved to a different foster home to further develop his social skills and come out of his shell.

    Zac is naturally a quiet, sweet and rather shy boy, who is nonetheless up for lots of pats and attention; it is likely he’ll become a real lap cat once he has his own humans with whom to form a permanent bond. He's still kittenish and playful, and has instigated and enjoys nose-touching interaction with the resident giant breed dogs…..and is always keen to explore new places and sounds, especially those out of bounds. He becomes vocal only around feeding time as Zac LOVES his food; this fondness for food has proved very useful to help him learn to trust and to settle, but he is still spooked by new sounds or any events out of routine.

    Early days yet, Zac is still a ‘work in progress’, but knowing his two previous kitty pad-mates have moved happily into fabulous furever families, we are sure Zac will also love and flourish with the right family. We believe it could take 3-4 months for him to settle in, given the chance to understand and integrate with household routine. Assigning his own small area like a bathroom or shower recess, or even a large dog crate, at the outset for example, will allow him to be gently introduced to all the exciting (but spooky) new sights and sounds awaiting him. A house where he is an indoor-only kitty will also ensure he has room to explore without adventuring into the unknown beyond. We believe he is likely to thrive best in a relatively quiet environment.

    Zac is vet checked, microchipped, fully vaccinated, desexed and comes with an extended trial period so he has time to truly settle in with his new family

    Should you be interested in learning more about this unique, lovely, young man, or arranging to meet him at his foster home in Riverstone, please contact his carer, Megan.

    Zac has been in foster care since 25 April 2020, for 6 months
