Hazelnut

Hazelnut

DSH - female - 11 months and 2 weeks

Hazelnut is the kitty companion you’ve been looking for, she is a very affectionate, friendly girl who is desperate for a family of her own. She came to into DCH care after being dumped at the vet with her 4 newborn kittens. She loves people and wants to be around you and is very talkative. Hazelnut had kittens at a very young age and is a small cat. She has had enough of being a mummy cat and wants her own humans to love. She loves walks in the garden and will follow you where ever you go. Movie nights are her favourite, she will sit and cuddle on you or on the bed. Hazelnut is now desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed and ready to be adopted.

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

Peter

Peter

Domestic - male - 3 months

Peter is a playful kitten who loves a good snuggle once tuckered out.

He certainly isn't shy, immediately exploring his new home here with a loud, constant purr and occasional leg rub. He enjoys chasing and batting whatever he can find lying around the house. He's a quiet boy, but loves his food, and will definitely let you know when he's hungry with the sweetest little meow. He currently eats both wet and dry food. Peter also uses the litter tray correctly.

Peter currently lives with an extra large dog (Giant breed) who he cuddles up to, and two very young children. He's unfazed by crawling babies, loud 3 year olds and dog barking.

Peter will be available for adoption once he is big enough to be desexed. His unfortunate bout of cat flu means he still needs to gain some weight before desexing. He is now over the cat flu.

Available for adoption from after the 17th January once desexed.

Peter has been in foster care since 20 December 2021, for 1 month

Sierra

Sierra

Domestic Medium Hair - female - 2 months and 2 weeks

Meet Sierra, a bouncy popcorn kitty that absolutely loves being brushed and back rubs. She purrs like an engine and turns to putty in your hands when you scratch her behind the ear. This little one is clever and quick. Look at those eyes! Who can resist this little cutie?
Sierra was brought into care with her two sisters at 3 weeks of age. Unfortunately, one of her sisters didn’t make it, as she was born with heart disease and suffered heart failure. Both Sierra and Whiskey (the other surviving sister), have received a clean bill of health from their vet, with no heart or lung issues. However, it is advised that whenever visiting the vet, kittens from this litter should have their heart listened to by the vet.
Sierra is fully litter trained and vaccinated. She will be ready for desexing in mid Jan 2022 and is ready for introductions now.
If you are looking for two cats, Sierra and her sister Whiskey would love to be rehomed together, but this is not essential as they are both confident cats and would do fine on their own.

Sierra has been in foster care since 01 January 2022, for 3 weeks

Bliss

Bliss

Domestic Medium Hair - female - 1 year and 7 months

Bliss by name, and bliss by nature. What a delight this young lady has been!

Not only did she raise her litter of 5 kittens, but she took on an orphan kitten to bring her litter to 6. And then when they were almost weaned, took on another litter of 5 grey kittens. Absolute super-star mum!!

Very friendly girl who enjoys being near you, getting pats and cuddles, doesn't mind being picked up and snuggles up to you on the bed. She is very mellow and relaxed. Sometimes meowing at you for attention.

Bliss came into care very, very thin, and while she isn't a big eater, she is now at a healthy weight and enjoys a mix of wet and dry food.

As she has medium length fur she will need to be regularly brushed. She isn't a huge fan, but a few brushes once or twice a week should be enough to keep the matts out of her tail and fur. As she is an indoor only cat, this routine is manageable.

Bliss is a very easy-going cat. While she has been fiercely protective of all of her kittens from the household dog with lots of hisses and swipes, she has never scratched or hurt anyone, and will happily snooze and cohabitate near the dog and watch the kittens play with her.
For this reason I would say she would suit a home with existing pets. She will likely take up the prime sleeping position on the bed though!

Bliss has weaned all of her kittens and has now been desexed. Enjoying days spent snoozing by the window-sill and coming up for chin scratches and pats.

She has been a delight to foster and I am thankful for her efforts in helping raise 11 kittens. She deserves a wonderful forever home with a family that will keep her safely indoors, and give her all the love and affection she deserves.

If you would like to apply to adopt her, please email us! She is based in Windsor, NSW and is ready to meet you.

Bliss has been in foster care since 06 January 2022, for 2 weeks

Audrey

Audrey

DSH - female - 3 months

Audrey has had a rough time of it since coming into DCH care, with a couple of health issues she had to battle but she is now a healthy and happy little kitten. While on the small side for her age, Audrey was still demanding to be bottle fed at 10+ weeks old, while her sister Bette gave up the bottle at 5 weeks. Audrey’s cheeky personality is starting to shine through, with mock ninja attacks occurring frequently and Audrey has a lovely fine and super soft coat.

Audrey 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 Audrey 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).

Audrey is ready for meet and greets now, and as she was desexed on the 13th January she will be ready for her new home around the 23rd January, Audrey has had her first kitten vaccination and is litter trained and will be up to date with her parasite protection.

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.

Audrey has been in foster care since 11 January 2022, for 1 weeks
