Cats in our Care

These cats and kittens have been rescued from various pounds and shelters by volunteer foster carers who provide the cat with a safe haven until they can be permanently rehomed. Cats are located throughout Sydney, Australia.

Please note that descriptions of breed, age and size are given in good faith and are based on assessment of the cat's features, together with veterinary opinion. We cannot guarantee the age and breed of any cats listed.

All cats listed come desexed, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.

Kittens will only be rehomed when over 8 weeks of age.

Suri

Suri

Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year and 7 months

Dear Suri was found after she gave birth to a litter of kittens when she was just a shy kitten herself. She nurtured them well, and they’ve all got furever homes. But - just as she was starting to learn to relax and accept affection herself - she developed ringworm and had to be isolated for several weeks from all but her carer.

Following her recovery and release from isolation, she now chooses to spend her time in our (large, escape-proof) garden, even at night, and – in the main – doesn’t want to be touched except by her carer, and even that with some reluctance.

She is never mean or scratchy; she is just extremely timid. She does enjoy spending time with one of her carer’s kittens.

Suri is still in need of her own furever home. She is low maintenance, but clearly needs to be safely outdoors within a cat proof enclosure, and with a family who understands she will never be a lap cat…. Are you that patient cat lover?

Please contact Suri's carer to arrange to visit her at her temporary home in Ermington.

Suri is microchipped, vaccinated and desexed, and is up to date with her flea and worm treatments, so she is ready to go.

Suri has been in foster care since 30 November 2020, for 1 year

Jessica

Jessica

DSH - female - 1 year and 9 months

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 11 months

.
.Hamish came into DCH care on 22nd September 2021, after being handed in to Campbelltown Pound as an orphan.

Hamish was only 10 days old and so he was bottle-fed and received lots of tlc, being a single kitten all by himself. As a result, Hamish is very people orientated, and thinks everything is all about him! He is a very affectionate little guy and is always happy to be picked up (carried around!), and cuddled.

Hamish is litter-trained and is currently being socialised in my home. He is adjusting very well to all the noises and chaos! Hamish is currently eating Royal Canin Kitten food, both wet and dry, with lots of clean water always available.

The $225 adoption fee includes:

  • Microchipping,
  • Worming/flea-treatment,
  • First vaccination (of 3),
  • Desexing (will be booked for mid-December 2021).
  • So he lives his best and longest life, Hamish must also be an INDOOR ONLY cat.

    Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting Hamish. PLEASE INCLUDE INFORMATION such as whether you own other pets, if you have a quieter or more chaotic household and any other relevant details.

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

    You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal, and, for a kitten, also be prepared to look after it for up to 20years! 😻

  • Worming/flea-treatment,
