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.

Mila

Mila

Dsh - female - 1 year and 4 months

Surrendered to DCH by owners who could no longer look after her, Mila was initially a little shy but an affectionate girl when she gets to know you. She is happy to spend her days by herself asleep but will settle on her carer's knee for a chin rub after dinner and will stay close at night for a cuddle. She adores being brushed and will chase after the brush if it's taken away. She's also very vocal when it comes to meal times and will let you know when she's hungry.

Mila’s comfort in her new foster home has been somewhat constrained by a young kitten in our care: it seems the kitten's constant need to run about and play is a bit too much for Mila sometimes when all she wants to do is laze around. This probably means her new home may best be one either without other young kitties or with kitties who are not as energetic as her current companion.

Before she came into our care, Mila was described as overall a beautiful cat. Friendly, so cuddly, loves pats and cuddles, would just come and lay next to you whenever she sees you're around, loves toys and running after things. She's very smart and knows her food schedule really well.

Mila is microchipped, desexed and has had the first of her vaccinations. She is an indoor only cat.

Please email us if you'd like to learn more about this black beauty, or arrange a meet and greet at her temporary home in Potts Point.

Mila has been in foster care since 25 January 2021, for 2 months

Tasha

Tasha

DMH - female - 3 months and 4 weeks

My name is Tasha, I came from a group of 4 and did not know people until I came to live with my foster mum. Apparently, I was really hissy and spitty to begin with, but now I accept pats and relax with a purr. Although I have come a long way I still get a bit scared at times so please be gentle when handling me. I'm doing my very best to become more social and have progressed to being comfortable around everyone in the household. My favourite social time is string toy playtime and food time, definitely food time.

During my time in foster I have learned to be more trustful, for instance I now sleep out in the open and am happy to be picked up for a quick cuddle when I am feeling secure and relaxed. I even join my mum on her bed for night sleeps.

I have been around the household doggy and even shared his bed for naps.
I play with the other kitty cats, and like my siblings, I also love cat grass.........that stuff really is awesome. My favourite treat is the dine creamy treats. My mum says I have very good manners when it comes to food.

I am looking for a forever home willing to be patient and allow me to develop trust and flourish over time. So if you would like some company and would love to see me grow into a lovely young fur lady, then feel free to make contact. We would love to here from you.

I am vet checked, microchipped, desexed, flea/worm treated, and my vaccinations are up to date.

Tasha has been in foster care since 29 January 2021, for 2 months

Bryce

Bryce

DSH - male - 3 months and 4 weeks

My name is Bryce, I came from a group of 4 and did not know people until I came to live with my foster mum. Apparently, I was really hissy to begin with, but now I love being in the same space as everyone. I enjoy getting pats and will relax with a purr. Although I have come a long way I can sometimes get scared, especially if there are new humans in the house. Having said that, I have learned to trust and have become more social. My favourite social time is string toy playtime and food time, definitely food time.

I am learning to improve my manners everyday, and have come out of my shell. I am happy to sleep out in the open and often visit my mum in bed for cuddles. I am also happy to be handled gently for a quick cuddle when I am feeling secure and relaxed. I love spending some quiet time high up on our scratchy post looking out into the yard, it's so relaxing.

I have been around the household doggy and even shared his bed for naps.
I play with the other kitty cats, and like my siblings, I also love cat grass.........that stuff really is awesome. I wouldn't say no to that creamy dine treat either.

I am looking for a forever home willing to be patient and allow me time to develop trust and settle in. As I still get scared sometimes, it is recommended I move into a household without young children. So if you are happy to be my forever buddy and watch me grow into a loving fur gentleman, then feel free to make contact. We would love to her from you.

I am vet checked, microchipped, desexed, flea/worm treated, and my vaccinations are up to date.

Oliver

Oliver

DSH - male - 3 months and 4 weeks

My name is Oliver, I came from a group of 4 and did not know people until I came to live with my foster mum. Yes I was a wild child, but have now come so far that I have changed my ways. Before I was hissy and scared, now my mum just has to look at me and my purr engine turns on. She says its pretty loud too. Yes, I am a real smoochy boy.

During my time in foster I was taught some good manners like sharing and being polite to others, including the doggy in the house - for some reason he just can't get enough of me. We, and the other kitty cats, just hang out and play around all day.

I am now ready to find my forever home. Im not too fussy, but I do have some conditions......toys and treats, oh I love my treats, especially those dine stick thingys. I also love cat grass, that stuff is awesome.

I am vet checked, microchipped, desexed, flea/worm treated, and my vaccinations are up to date.

If you are looking for an addition to your family then feel free to make contact. We would love to hear from you.

Oliver has been in foster care since 29 January 2021, for 2 months

Megan

Megan

Dmh - female - 1 year and 2 months

Megan is a wonderfully affectionate cat, who will seek you out for 'feeding time' and coil herself around you, purring and mewing until her meal is presented to her.
Even when food is not involved, she loves to 'elegantly' flop in front of you (no matter where you are), to expose her belly and have it rubbed.
Not only has she been a fantastic mum to her two little boys, she lives happily with a 12 month old Labradane and would adapt to a new dog quite quickly.
Megan is happy to be picked up, have her nails trimmed and is well behaved around small children, making her wonderful addition to any family looking to adopt.

Megan will be available on the 18 April, after desexing.

Megan has been in foster care since 07 February 2021, for 2 months

Cyrrus

Cyrrus

DSH - male - 4 months

Cyrrus and his 3 siblings, Clementine, Cobain and Chile were surrendered to DCH by a lovely family whose cat, Mimi (now desexed), had an unplanned pregnancy! As they have been socialised since birth, these gorgeous kittens are going to love finding their Forever Families and getting all that special attention which they deserve.

Cyrrus is a little sweetie who loves company and will often meow if he finds himself alone. He loves back rubs and cuddles, and has become a very confident and chunky little guy. Cyrrus is curious and playful and has developed a beautifully thick and soft coat.

Cyrrus will suit any family who will give him lots of love and attention.He also loves our resident cats (unfortunately they don’t like kittens), and our big cat-friendly dogs. Cyrrus also loves to follow people around the house to see what’s going on, and runs to the front door to greet visitors

His tail is like an antenna which indicates his mood - normally it stands straight up, as Cyrrus is a happy little guy!

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming/flea-treatment, first vaccination (of 3) and desexing - Cyrrus has now had all 3 of his kitten vaccinations. These kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other kittens.

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

Cyrrus has been in foster care since 12 February 2021, for 2 months
