Pebbles

Pebbles

Dsh - female - 10 years and 6 months

Pebbles and her twin brother Smudge were adopted from DCH as kittens, only to find themselves back in our care due to family circumstances. They have previously lived as indoor/outdoor cats, but in their later years have tended towards venturing only onto the balcony.

Pebbles has bravely gained confidence in the short time she’s been in care, and now seeks out and spends all her time with her 3 human flat mates when they're around. She loves to cuddle, likes to play, and has chosen to sleep on the couch or on a cozy, fluffy blankie. You will see she also like to sit on a pizza box - maybe it makes her feel nice and warm!

Her photos don’t really do justice to her beauty.

As older cats, she and her brother enjoy sleeping, of course, becoming more active and playful in the evening. Sounds like a perfect match for a working single or couple.

Both have lovely 'bandit' markings and stunning, strokeworthy coats. Super soft, but shed little. The perfect combination!

It would be lovely if they find a furever home together, but - from observations so far - they do not seem particularly co-dependent if you are interested in adopting only one of them.

They are de-sexed, microchipped and inoculations up to date.

Pebbles has been in foster care since 17 October 2017, for 1 month

Smudge

Smudge

Dsh - male - 10 years and 6 months

Smudge, and his sister Pebbles, were adopted from DCH as kittens only to find themselves back in our care after 10 years. They have previously lived as indoor/outdoor cats, but in their later years have tended towards venturing out only onto the balcony.

Finding himself in a new home, Smudge overcame his shyness on the evening they arrived - and was the brave one, courageously venturing our to play and have fun with his new foster mum. And showering her with affection. See video link at foot of page.
He has become a little more reticent in recent times, perhaps coming to terms with 3 human flat mates and their comings and goings! Nonetheless, he always LOOOOVES a cuddle and pushes himself at you to tell you when he wants more affection. Once he gets to know people he likes to sit or lay next to them, so we are sure he will blossom in his new home.

Mara

Mara

American staffy x - female - 2 years and 2 months

Foster Carer Required: Mara is in temporary accommodation right now, if you can assist by providing her a forever or a foster home please let us know. Her Accommodation runs out at Christmas and we have no back up kennels this time of year. She urgently needs a temporary or permanent home NOW.

Mara is a young girl who is in need of a bigger yard to burn off some energy. She loves water and she's very active and could do with some continued training to curb her enthusiasm for life.

She's ok with some dogs and has lived with dogs in the past, but some dogs she takes a dislike to.

But what a complete sweetheart! This big darling girl is a total sook, and her natural position is on her back so you can scratch her belly. She wants to follow you all over the house and keep you in sight.

She is still a pup and doesn't really know her size. She has not really been trained, so loves to jump on you. We are working on this behaviour at the moment. She seems willing to learn, and is picking up commands quickly. I suspect she will require a firm hand with any new owner. UPDATE: She is now not jumping so much. She is learning to drop and roll over. She loves her treats! But takes them gently, no snatching at all. She waits patiently when her food is down to be told she can eat.

Mara is one of the sweetest-natured dogs I have met. So eager and willing to please, and just wants to be loved. She wants you to be her boss and tell her what is expected of her, and will require a firm hand until she learns her place.

Mara has been in foster care since 02 November 2017, for 1 month

G.G

G.G

DSH - male - 6 years and 9 months

G.G. was a rescue kitten, who grumbled when he was picked up, hence the name Grumpy Guts (G.G. for short). However, that is all in the past and he very quickly learned to purr energetically and affectionately….

G.G. has been in foster care tooooo long. But he has had great animal colleagues as well as humans during that time, so he is unphased by his big dog comrades and very used to living with a variety of feline friends. Perhaps a great addition to your growing menagerie?!

Over time he has become a divine, gentle man, with the most beautiful (but quiet!) meow you've ever heard. His favourite pastime is to sit beside one of his humans getting lots of strokes and pats.

He will often sit upon his haunches like a meerkat when he wants to see what is going on, and loves to play a game of aeroplanes at bedtime if someone is up for it.

He is a bit shy with strangers, so takes a while to come round. But, once he knows you he trusts you, and is a delight to handle and have around.

It would be great if G.G. could find a furever home soon. He was overlooked so long because his profile and photos weren’t being kept up to date, so prospective adopters like you didn’t know what to expect. In any event, he now looks forward to meeting you soon at his temporary Glenhaven home.

G.G.’s adoption fee includes microchipping, de-sexing and up to date vaccinations.

G.G has been in foster care since 30 July 2011, for 6.3 years

Jessica

Jessica

DSH - female - 7 years and 1 month

Jessica was rescued at only 3 weeks old and came into DCH foster care to be bottle fed to full health. But she’s found herself in care for too long!

Jessica would love to be an only cat with her very own furever human(s), although she is happy to be with other cats: Jessica’s absolutely favourite thing is to sit on a lap, chilling out in front of the TV with her people.

Jessica basically prefers her family’s undivided adoration, and likes to be where her people are. Being an older kitty, she learns fast about their preferences, and being a smooch now comes naturally. She even wriggles into their clothing to snuggle up.

She has tested the outdoors, but only tolerates it when accompanied. She definitely doesn’t roam or seek to be outside.

Jessica looks forward to getting the chance to meet you soon at her Glenhaven foster home.
Although she is a beautiful and loving girl, she has had very few enquiries in her time with DCH, so we suspect that it was due to her website profile not being updated to reflect her maturity.

The adoption fee includes microchipping, de-sexing and up to date vaccinations.

Jessica has been in foster care since 09 August 2011, for 6.3 years

Jaffa

Jaffa

DSH - female - 4 years and 11 months

Update 29/7/17:

Why has the beautiful Jaffa still not found a home?? She's been in care since she was 6 weeks old and has been with her foster carer since. Contact us if you can give Jaffa that permanent home she deserves.

Jaffa loves to play outside during the day. She is adventurous and curious and friendly. She loves to sleep on our bed each night making sure her head is laying on one of our legs. Jaffa is shy around other people but very secure with her foster family.

Jaffa currently lives with two other cats and gets on well with them, so would be suitable for a home with existing pets. She would suit a couple or single person without children. She loves to be patted and sits on our lap when we pick her up and put her there. She is a sweet little thing with a cheeky attitude.

If you think you would like to offer your home to share, please call to arrange to meet Jaffa at her temporary home in Pitt Town.

The adoption fee for Jaffa includes de-sexing, microchipping, and up to date vaccinations and worm treatments.

Jaffa has been in foster care since 30 January 2013, for 4.8 years

Cherry

Cherry

DSH - female - 6 years and 1 month

Cherry is a very friendly girl as she gets to know you - once that purr motor starts it keeps going and going!

Cherry is a gentle and loving girl; she loves cuddles and will keep you company all day if allowed, by following you around and talking in little trills and meows. She can also be both playful and cheeky.

She has a gorgeously thick soft coat and beautiful markings. Cherry is fine with other cats and is happy to be around our cat-friendly dogs. She uses the scratching posts provided and is very clean with her litter tray.

Although she can be shy with new people and surroundings, Cherry blossoms once she knows and trusts you - so much so that she now loves to nibble on our fingers and toes!! She is such a lovely girl that just needs that bit of extra time.

Cherry is looking for an indoor home with a loving family who will make it easy for her to settle in. The family can include another cat-friendly pet.
You are welcome to visit Cherry, who is located at Mount Annan.

Cherry is microchipped, and de-sexed.

Cherry has been in foster care since 30 January 2013, for 4.8 years

Piccolo

Piccolo

DSH - male - 4 years and 11 months

Hey there, my name is Piccolo, but I answer to Pic or Wicky when I don't have my selective hearing on, lol.
So I've been in foster care for 4 years and only ever had one inquiry, which was years ago. It's a bit weird as I'm such a handsome fellow.
I do have a few health issues but if you can help me keep my weight off it may not be such an issue. As many of you might relate I find it hard to lose the KGs, I just love food so much.

Speaking about things I love, I also love to sleep and sleep in foster mums bed snuggled up next to her every night. During the day I find one of my many beds throughout the house. I go through phases of which is my fav.
I don't play much anymore, but if your going to walk around with a shoelace sliding along the floor, I'll chase it.

I don't mind other cats but lately I have become a bit stressed when new foster kittens have come to live with us. I would love nothing more than a furrever home that doesn't have cats coming and going.

I'm not outgoing but I'm also not timid. I will chill in the bedroom when visitors come around and come out to say hi (and see if they will feed me) after a short amount of time. I prefer to come to people in my own time. If your my hooman/s I will love you dearly and come to you straight away (hoping for some food).
Piccolo is excited to meet you and his foster carer can explain his possible health issues.

**Piccolo has had a few medical issues while in care including a blocked urinary tract. His vet fees have come to just over $1,500. A HUGE thankyou to all the people that sponsored Piccolo's vet fees. His extra costs have now been fully covered.

Thanks to Wayne, Gillian, Laine, Alison, Julie, Marlene, Peter, Amber and Susan**

Piccolo has been in foster care since 07 March 2013, for 4.8 years

Frenchie

Frenchie

DSH - female - 4 years and 5 months

Hello. This is Frenchie. My foster mum rescued me from a pound when I was a very scared pregnant cat. She helped me give birth to and to look after my 3 beautiful kittens - who she also found lovely homes for. I’ve been cared for by her for several years now, but I’d really like my own furever home soon……

Frenchie is very affectionate, and does like a good pat from her trusted humans whenever possible. She also likes being outdoors, but we suspect she’d spent more time indoors at home if one of the three other cats in the household wasn’t quite so bossy! That said, she brushes noses on a daily basis with the small dog with whom she lives very happily.

Since Frenchie is still timid around visitors, she would no doubt thrive best in a quiet home where she is the only feline, and would like access to a garden…..Perhaps , with a cat friendly canine companion.

Frenchie is located in Glenorie, and is available for personal visits. Her adoption fee includes microchipping, desexing and up to date vaccinations.

Frenchie has been in foster care since 17 December 2013, for 3.9 years
