Suri

Suri

Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year

Suri is a such a little cat who gave birth to her first litter of kittens when she was just a kitten herself. She has since been in care with an active foster family, comprising mum and dad, two kids, cats (both resident and foster), canines and bunnies – and this busy environment really hasn’t suited her rather quiet temperament. With lots of one on one time with her carer now her kittens have moved on, she is learning to relax and enjoy affection, and to be held…..

But, Suri is longing for her own furever home – quiet, indoor, maybe the only pet. She would sooo love that environment, and we are sure she would gain confidence and thrive in it.

Are you that quiet, patient person or family? Please contact her carer to arrange a meet and greet 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 4 months

Archie

DSH - male - 6 months and 4 weeks

Archie is a very sweet, affectionate cat, loves to be by your side and or on you always. He will wait for bed time and cuddle close to you.

Loves getting cuddles and pats, he will stay in your arms and just allow you to cuddle him.

Archie is a very handsome little kitty.

Archie is okay with our rabbit and our dog, however initially he wasn't and took a couple of weeks to get used to them, he would hiss a lot , now he is playful with them and doesn't mind them at all, when we bring in another cat or dog , he doesn't like it and needs time to adjust but eventually warms up to them.

Indoor cat only please.

Feel free to drop by and meet Archie.

Echo

Echo

Domestic Short Hair - female - 5 months and 3 weeks

Echo and her brother Elvis were rescued from under a house in Macquarie Fields and were then surrendered into DCH care.

Echo is such a sweet little marble Tabby who absolutely loves pats and attention. Echo came into foster care with what seemed to be cat flu but she did not respond to any antibiotics or treatment and still had great trouble breathing. In addition, this tiny girl is still only 1kg at nearly 6 months old.

UPDATE 15/04/21
On the 7th April, Echo was anaesthetised at Rossmore Vet Hospital, and a large growth could be seen down her throat. The growth was removed and Echo was given a cortisone injection, plus a 5 day course of antibiotic injections.

The next few weeks will determine if this has been a success but so far, so good - Echo has put on 200g in a week and her breathing seems normal!

Fingers crossed for Echo! 😻

This gentle-natured, affectionate kitten deserves the proper care and treatment so she can go on to find a special forever family. Any help with her vet costs would be very much appreciated.

Echo has been in foster care since 22 December 2020, for 3 months

Elvis

Elvis

Domestic Short Hair - male - 5 months and 3 weeks

Elvis and his sister, Echo, came into DCH foster care at about 8 weeks old after they were found living under a house in Macquarie Fields.

Elvis is a very playful and curious young man who is beginning to realise that people aren’t so bad (and they have treats!)

This beautiful Tabby boy with the chiselled chin, usually does do a runner when he knows you want to pick him up, making little purrs and trills as he goes, like it's a game to him! However once you have him in your arms, he doesn't fight at all to get away and succumbs to all the love and cuddles!

Elvis will usually fall asleep right next to me or behind my shoulder, on the lounge. Elvis has progressed really well with his social skills but he will really benefit from a quieter home with only 1-2 people to focus on and trust. Elvis gets on well with other cats and kittens, as well as cat-friendly dogs.

Elvis had a rough start to life but he absolutely deserves a loving Forever Family to call his own.

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. Elvis is also litter-trained and socialised with other foster kittens and must be kept as an INSIDE ONLY cat.

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

Elvis is desexed and is ready to go to his new home now.

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 this kitten.

Elvis has been in foster care since 22 December 2020, for 3 months

Franny has been raised with other kittens, cats, dogs and bunnies and is quite comfortable living among them all.
