QTPie

QTPie

DSH - female - 3 months and 2 weeks

QTPie came into foster care at the tender age of 2.5 weeks, with her siblings Humphrey, Truffles and Tabbygail and was bottle fed the first few weeks in care.

QTPie is a very sweet kitten and loves snuggling with her foster mum of an evening, and during the day she can be found playing with her siblings.

QTPie has been raised with other foster kittens, as well as the resident cats, dogs and bunny and she happily co-habits with them all. While QTPie has access outside via a cat run in her foster home, she is looking for forever family that can offer her the protection of growing up inside (or safety outside access).

QTPie has been spayed, had her first kitten vaccination and is litter trained and will be up to date with her parasite protection - QTPie is ready for adoption now.

As we 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.

QTPie has been in foster care since 19 October 2021, for 3 months

Truffles

Truffles

DSH - female - 3 months and 2 weeks

Truffles came into foster care at the tender age of 2.5 weeks, with her siblings Humphrey, QTPie and Tabbygail and was bottle fed the first few weeks in care.

Truffles is a sweet and affectionate kitten and can be often found during the day sleeping on her foster mums bed alongside the resident dogs, however when the zoomies hit she is off for a game with her siblings.

The more anxious of her siblings, Truffles self-soothes of an evening, and when it is time to watch TV or go to bed she will curl up on her foster mums chest and suck her foster mums shirt while making biscuits in the air. Truffles will grow out of this behaviour as she gets older, and her foster mum can handle the couple of wet spots left on t-shorts and pj tops for some kitten love 😊

Tabbygail

DSH - female - 3 months and 2 weeks

Tabbygail came into foster care at the tender age of 2.5 weeks, with her siblings Humphrey, QTPie and Truffles and was bottle fed the first few weeks in care.

Tabbygail is currently challenging her brother Humphrey for the title of cheekiest kitten, who has the funniest growl when she gets fully into her play and she will run through her foster home growling at the world 😊 And Tabbygail is convinced the resident dogs are her play toys, even if the dogs aren’t to sure.

If her foster mum sits on the floor with criss-cross applesauce legs, Tabbygail will quickly assume her position curled up on her lap to be part of whatever is about to happen.

Tabbygail is an adventurous kitten, and often finds her way onto the kitchen counter despite her foster mums best efforts to keep her on the floor.

Tabbygail has been raised with other foster kittens, as well as the resident cats, dogs and bunny and she happily co-habits with them all. While Tabbygail has access outside via a cat run in her foster home, she is looking for forever family that can offer her the protection of growing up inside (or safety outside access).

Momo

Momo

Domestic - female - 4 years and 3 months

Momo is such a sweet kitty. She has a quirky personality and loves to follow you around to see what you are doing. She loves playing with bouncy toys and laser pointers and cardboard boxes!

Sometimes she behaves like a dog and likes to roll around on the balcony or outside! She loves her supervised outside time and napping in the sun. If there is a sunny window no doubt Momo would be napping on it!

She is very treat and food driven which is good for training. She loves to greet you when you come home with meows and rubs on your legs wanting pats. She also loves when you come home with groceries. She likes to see what goodies you got and if there are any for her!

She eats whikas dry food in the mornings and wet food at night. Every now and then she will have chicken neck or some boiled chicken breast.

If you're sitting in the loungeroom she'll sit with you, if you're going to bed she'll snuggle on the bed too. She loves a good cuddly soft blanket! She loves scratches especially behind the ears and under her chin. She'll always find a weird position to sleep in.

Like with any new cat she will take a little bit of time to adjust. She is very keen to explore and play though. She doesn't like loud noises. Sometimes she will want to be left alone to do her own thing. She's not really a fan of fish. She prefers chicken or beef!

She is litter box trained.
She is currently desexed and fully vaccinated and will need her next vaccination in March 2022,

Medical Notes:
Momo has received an acne wash in the past for acne on her chin. No other known medical issues.

She will be best suited to a home where she is the only cat in the home and where there are no young or noisy kids.

This is an assisted rehoming / Private Listing.

Located in Eastwood, NSW

Kovu

Kovu

Domestic Short Hair - male - 2 months and 4 weeks

Kovu was a stray, found at a primary school and surrendered into DCH’s care. He was malnourished and quite wary of humans, loud and unexpected noises sometimes still scare him.

Kovu has a great appetite and is especially excited and vocal when dinner is bbq chook. He is shy when meeting new people; you will need to be slow and patient with him and help him to build some extra confidence. He needs a family that can spend time handling and playing with him. Don’t worry, he does warm up to you eventually and he is quite a character once he feels safe.

He is a sweet, happy little boy who is looking for an understanding and caring family to share a wonderful long life together. He loves to play with feathery toys and enjoys running through the cat tunnel or up the cat tower during crazy zoom time. He adores cuddle sessions with my daughter and will lay with her for hours purring and snuggling

He was easy going when it came to his foster brother Leo and happily accepted him into our home. He enjoys running around playing with him but i think he would prefer if Leo had an off switch sometimes. Kovu is a chill, relaxed kitten that prefers his playtime and naptime to be equal.

We have spent a little time outside in the enclosure and while he did eventually, start to play with his foster brother he was still quite jumpy at times, so would be best suited to an indoor only home.
Oddly enough, during his first vet visit he didn’t seem scared or even react to a dog barking so there is a possibility he could be very slowly introduced to a home with a gentle dog.

Kovu has been has been treated for fleas/worms and vaccinated. He will be microchipped and desexed and ready for his forever home by January 8th.

He is currently eating Ivory coat kitten dry food and Fancy feast wet food and is using breeder’s choice paper litter but he can be transitioned to whatever brand you prefer.
He is currently located in the Penrith area and ready to meet his new family

Kovu has been in foster care since 10 December 2021, for 1 month

Leo

Leo

Domestic Medium Hair - male - 3 months and 1 weeks

Leo was found as a stray, on a main road and taken to a vet clinic by a good Samaritan.
His tail was broken and had become necrotic, so it needed to be amputated to save his life.
He had surgery on the 14th of December and is on a course of antibiotics.
We are still pending his vet costs however; he is going to need sponsorship to help cover his surgery.

Leo’s has been so through so much, after his tail amputation he had to be contained and in a recovery collar to prevent him licking or opening and infecting his wound.
He is such a bouncy happy kitten, so this was absolute torture for him.
He thoroughly enjoyed the moments of supervised collar off free play we were able to give him.

Leo has now had his stitches removed and his wound has healed very nicely.
Since then he has been unstoppable, he is bold and adventurous, his enthusiasm for life infectious.
He is hopping, bouncy and exploring every nook and cranny, he loves to pounce on his foster brother Kovu and they run around after each other like a couple of mad speedsters.

Leo is happiest when he can chase and play interactive toys with you but don’t let the adventurous spirit fool you, he is also a gentle soul that cherishes snuggly cuddles and nap times with you.
Although being such a climber, Leo is best suited to an indoor only home and any outdoor time should only happen in a supervised enclosure.
Leo really is such a floppy easy going kitten; he would make a great friend for children or other cats.

He has been has been treated for fleas/worms and is microchipped, desexed and vaccinated.
He is currently eating Ivory coat kitten dry food and Fancy feast wet food and is using breeder’s choice paper litter but he can be transitioned to whatever brand you prefer.
Edit: Scratch the fancy feast, doesn't seem to agree with his tummy.
He has been having a rice with tuna or chicken for dinner for the past few nights.

Leo is currently located in the Penrith area and he is now ready to find his forever home.

Leo has been in foster care since 14 December 2021, for 1 month
