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.

DSH - female - 7 months

Roxi spent the first 4 weeks of COVID lock down located at PetStock Marsden Park but was unsuccessful in finding her forever family. Roxi has now returned to her foster home, and is still available for adoption.

Roxi is a lovely delicate kitten, with a long slender body, and lovely white markings and as she gets older her coat becomes a little lighter. Shy on first meeting new humans, Roxi is super affectionate and is happy to curl up beside her foster mum or even under the covers at night, and often keeps her foster mum company while she is working from home. Roxi tolerates being picked up and cuddled for short periods and hopefully this will improve once she settles into her forever home.

Roxi loves her fellow housemates be it kitten, cat or dog and is often found 'mothering' them or will ninja jump at them if they enter a room and she is in a playful mood.

As Roxi was housed in the adoption enclosure at PetStock for 4 weeks she has been exposed to multiple people and animals, however she will still need time to acclimatize to her new home and family.

Roxi is ready for her forever home now and she has been desexed, microchipped and she has all 3 of her kitten vaccinations and is up to date with her parasite protection.

Roxi is available to meet at her foster home in Bligh Park once the Greater Sydney COVID stay at home restrictions ease.

As we currently receive a lot of enquiries for our kittens, please include relevant details about yourself and your home/other pets, to be considered.

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 an animal from DCH.

Roxi has been in foster care since 26 April 2021, for 2 months



DSH - male - 8 months and 3 weeks

this beautiful natured young man (who I struggle to get a good picture of as he's so busy rubbing up against me when I try). Is currently in our cattery and really needs to find his forever home where he can run around and enjoy lots of cuddles.

Terence is the lovliest boy, who is a full time purr machine, rolls over for attention and loves pats and belly rubs. He loves getting picked up and he really enjoyes cuddles. He is, however, so desperate for pats and attention he will be your shadow and can pose a bit of a trip hazard, but that may settle when he's not caged most of the day.

He gets on great with other cats and is super handsome as well with the softest coat. Terence is fine with children but they can spook him a bit, so he's not going to be a childs best friend (at this stage anyway), so he needs a home with a family that can spoil him with attention and affection and he'll make a lovely lapcat in his special forever home.

Terence has been in foster care since 28 April 2021, for 2 months



Domestic Short Hair - female - 9 months and 3 weeks

Karen is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and flea treated. So, she is ready and raring go to her furever home!

She was on the verge of being euthanised by the Council when DCH rescued her and brought her to me. She has been in foster care for 2 months.

Karen is a typical lap cat. She loves spending her time making biscuits on you. She responds when called Karu lovingly and softly. Karen loves to spend her time chasing laser toys, playing with feather toys. She doesn't like to be petted on her lower part of her body and belly rubbed, she will gently bite you if you do so. Karen is fit for a family who has adults only or home with mature children who understand cats body language.

Karen has been in foster care since 25 June 2021, for 1 month



Dsh - female - 6 months and 3 weeks

Lulu was surrendered to us by the family who were parents of her Mum. They took great care of her and kept up all her flea and worming treatments. She'd been brought up with mum and siblings, so she is a very well adjusted kitten.

She's a petite (2kg) girl and is VERY sweet and friendly. She purrs constantly and is a little gem of a kitten who likes belly rubs, cuddling, and some play time. She quite sociable, gets along with other cats and adjusted to the foster home quickly. She would also be good with children, as her first family had one. She'll crawl right up on your lap and snuggle in, purring away.

Lulu is vet checked, microchipped, vaccinated and desexed. She's ready to meet you now!

Lulu has been in foster care since 07 July 2021, for 3 weeks



Domestic Short Hair - female - 6 months and 3 weeks

Luna is a very sweet and calm cat who was rescued alongside a very young kitten, who wouldn't leave her side. Luna saved her from the cold Australian winter and they protected each other.
They are now both safe and warm and Luna is looking for her forever home. Only young herself, she has the silkiest fur with a beautiful butterfly pattern on her back.
She loves curling up and sleeping next to you and has a very sweet, loving nature. Good with other cats and children.
She is vet checked, microchipped, desexed, flea/worm treated, and her vaccinations are up to date.

Luna has been in foster care since 10 July 2021, for 2 weeks
