Epponnee (and Imran)

Epponnee (and Imran)

Dsh - female - 1 year and 1 month

Epponnee and Imran found themselves abandoned, under a house, when a member of the public located and rescued them.
Since coming into care Epponnee and her brother have been enjoying the noicer things in life, such as sleeping on beds, regular meals, many cuddles and a lot of play with new toys.
Eppi is the braver of the siblings, always scouting everything out before Imran follows. She loves being held and patted and has an impressive motor for such a tiny cat, purring loudly.
Eppi and Imran are looking for an indoor only home together as they're a bonded pair. They would do well in a calm environment with older children. They can be left alone together during the day, so would suit a working family/person. They both use their litter tray reliably.

Epponnee (and Imran) has been in foster care since 01 August 2023, for 10 months

Betty

Betty

domestic short hair - female - 1 year and 1 month

Betty is a gorgeous smoochy cat that is playful and energetic. She loves head butts and will roll over exposing her belly for rubs.

Betty was rescued off the street by a kind street feeder. The feeder noticed that Betty was friendly, clever and interested in human company.

Betty is independent, confident and gets on well with friendly cats or dogs, but can become defensive (rather than submissive) if faced with aggression

Betty adapts very quickly to new environments and will quickly make friends with humans if she feels safe.

One of her profile pics, show Betty relaxing on the examination table during her very first vet visit. The vet took the photos herself, she was so impressed with Betty’s behaviour and manner.

Betty will need an indoor only home and will benefit from access to a secure outdoor enclosure or an enclosed balcony.

Betty loves pats and being brushed, she comes, desexed, wormed, vaccinated and indoor litter trained and is ready for her new home now.

Betty has been in foster care since 06 January 2024, for 5 months

Luna

Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year and 1 month

This is Luna. She is a desexed female cat, originally found in Bondi.

Luna loves head-scratches and sitting on laps. She is a great substitute for a hot water bottle when working from home. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle in bed. She's also a foodie and loves cat biscuits.

Luna is good with kids and loves to play. Her favourite game is fetch. We hope to find Luna a good home where she will be loved.

Located in Kingsford.

Rusty & Dora

Rusty & Dora

DSH - male - 1 year and 7 months

Rusty (male) and Dora (female) have been in the same foster home since 5 weeks old and, although initially timid, are now loving, cuddly house-trained cats. The siblings are used to being together and are well-bonded.

They are house cats but do like to spend their evenings outside smelling the plants and soaking up the sunshine in their enclosed garden. Rusty, the male, is adventurous and playful. He takes some warming up to new people but once you have his trust he will follow you around like a shadow. He's a fluffy and gorgeous little chap! Dora, the female, is calmer than her brother and likes to spend hours curled up in your lap. She likes most people and things, except the vacuum cleaner! They are very cute and responsive to their owners, they even come running when their names are called.

Rusty and Dora are both wonderful companions and will make any home better. Looking for a loving home that would eventually allow the cats to roam safely outside (during the day only) as well as lounge inside, and without dogs (as Rusty isn't a fan).

Lola

Lola

Chihiahua Cross - female - 5 months and 4 weeks

Meet Lola: Your New Best Friend!

Breed: Chihuahua Cross (Possibly mixed with Foxie)

Personality: Lola is a sweet and affectionate pup who absolutely loves tummy rubs. She'll happily flop over for a pat anytime and thrives on being around people. Her lively and playful nature makes her the perfect companion for anyone seeking constant cuddles and fun adventures.

Background: Lola's early days were tough. She and her siblings were found in a box on a rainy day in the park, suffering from hyperthermia. Fortunately, she received immediate medical care from an animal welfare vet and was then rescued from the council shelter. Now, she's ready to start a new chapter with a loving family.

Health: Lola is desexed and vaccinated, ensuring she's all set for her new home. She will need ongoing twice-daily medication due to a heart murmor.

Ideal Home: Lola is looking for a loving home where she can enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities. She loves exploring the outdoors during the day and snuggling up indoors at night. As a young pup, she will benefit from training sessions and attending puppy school to help her develop into a well-behaved and socialized dog.

Requirements: Lola's future family should be dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment. She needs regular exercise, mental stimulation, and lots of love to thrive. A commitment to her ongoing training and socialization is essential.

If you're ready to welcome a playful, affectionate, and endlessly charming companion into your life, Lola is eagerly waiting to meet you! Contact us to arrange a meet-and-greet and give Lola the forever home she deserves.

Located in Quakers Hill, NSW

Lola has been in foster care since 21 February 2024, for 3 months

Sabrina

Sabrina

Domestic short hair - female - 1 year and 5 months

Sabrina came into DCH care as a young mum of 7 kittens with cat flu. Sabrina and 4 of her kittens survived cat flu under DCH care. She recovered within a week, without any lasting effects. She is a beautiful, smoochy, friendly cat who loves nothing more than to cuddle and snuggle with you.

She is an extremely friendly cat. She is fantastic with children and adults. She is friendly with other cats when introduced properly. She is currently untested with dogs. She loves to play with cat toys like plushies and balls. She also likes climbing cat trees and sitting next to you when you're watching tv or reading.

Sabrina is litter-trained, quiet, and loves dry and wet cat food. She is respectful of furniture, clothes and shoes. She does love a good scratch on a scratching post. She has been microchipped, vaccinated and desexed. She is ready to join her forever family now.

If you are looking for a cat who is serene, calm, smoochy and low-maintenance, Sabrina would love to meet you.

Sabrina has been in foster care since 25 February 2024, for 3 months

Skye

Skye

Domestic short hair - female - 4 months

Skye is a very special kitten and is looking for an extraordinary family to love her. She came into DCH care with her mama (Sabrina) and 6 siblings, all suffering from cat flu. Whilst Skye was one of 4 siblings who survived cat flu with mama, she suffered permanent blindness in her left eye, and was also born with cerebellar hypoplasia (aka "wobbly cat syndrome"), a rare neurological disorder that causes swaying while standing or walking/running. However, the disorder is not progressive nor contagious, and she is perfectly fine in every other way.

Skye is playful, affectionate, sweet and obviously a warrior. She has plenty of spirit and personality and never lets her physical challenges get her down. She loves climbing cat trees, playing with her siblings and kitten toys (such as balls and plushies), and coming in for cuddles and snuggles.

She loves wet and dry kitten food. She is toilet-trained on pellets and crystals. She is respectful of furniture, clothes and shoes. She is fantastic with other kittens, cats, children and adults. She is quiet and incredibly inspiring to live with - she never lets anything get her down.

Skye will be available to join her forever home in August 2024 after she has an operation to remove her blind eye (she needs to be 6 months for the operation to have a best chance of success). Looking after Skye is just like looking after a normal kitten. She is strong, can see clearly in her other eye and is getting better at controlling her wobbliness.

If you are looking for an extraordinary kitten who is sweet, affectionate, playful, and brave, Skye would love to meet you.

Skye has been in foster care since 25 February 2024, for 3 months

Daisy

Daisy

Domestic Short Hair - female - 6 months and 2 weeks

Daisy should have been named Dennis-the-menace as she is the most playful kitten her foster carer has come across!
She is constantly running around the house, jumping on toys, wrestling the resident cat, climbing onto the indoor pot plants, batting at your toes and loving life. She is a super energetic cat and LOVES playing...whether it's chasing toys, climbing the scratching tree, swiping at feathers or jumping on your head as you sleep.

Daisy likely won't be a super snuggly, cuddly type of cat, but she will have a snooze beside you, and you can pick her up for a smooch and a cuddle....she would just rather be active and playing! She starts purring instantly whenever you pat her, and she will definitely keep you entertained with her antics.

Because of her outgoing personality she must be rehomed to a household with an existing cat, and a strictly indoor only home. (She would be a proficient hunter and decimate wildlife if allowed outside!) Daisy is going through a phase of playing and trying to wrestle with your hand so is better suited to a home without young children at this time.

Daisy has never had a toileting accident and always uses her litter tray, and we're teaching her to use her scratching post consistently. She is available to meet and greet in Riverstone, NSW and will be able to go to her new home as soon as she is desexed.

Daisy has been in foster care since 06 March 2024, for 3 months

Lincoln

Lincoln

Staffy x - male - 1 year

I NEED A SPECIAL HOME ❤️🖤

Lincoln is a sweet boy who has come very far since he has been in foster care.

He was found as a stray and was in very poor condition. Since being in care he has really grown in personality. He is a fantastic dog to have her own home he is house trained and crate trained, loves to play with squeaky toys and loves to play with dogs
He absolutely adores people and he’s extremely gentle around children.
He is currently doing rehab hydrotherapy one session a week, and it has helped strengthen his muscles so that he can increase his exercise.
If you can offer Lincoln the special home he needs please contact us to meet him..

Sponsorship Required
Due to his poor start to life and being so underweight Lincoln has had to have more vet attention than most to rule out any underlying conditions. He also required some baby teeth to be extracted. His vet fees have come to $1,007 and we are seeking sponsorship to cover some of these additional expenses.

Lincoln has been in foster care since 09 March 2024, for 3 months

Pixma

Pixma

Domestic Short Hair - female - 1 year and 8 months

Meet Pixma, affectionately known as Pixie, a nurturing and loving mother of three who is now ready to find her own forever home. This confident and petite lady has a heart as warm as her constant purrs, which can be heard from miles away as a testament to her contentment and affectionate nature.

Pixie is a cat who knows what she wants - pats and cuddles are non-negotiable for her, and she'll happily hop onto any available lap to get them. She particularly enjoys snuggling up on chests, though her choice of positioning might involve her bum being in your face! She also adores head bumps and is always on the lookout for surfaces where she can make her daily biscuits, showing off her contentment and comfort.

When she's not seeking affection, Pixie loves basking in sunbeams and exploring tall bookshelves, indulging in her playful side and seeking out new adventures. However, she's also looking forward to some well-deserved rest and relaxation once her kittens find their forever homes, knowing that she too deserves a loving family and a cozy spot to call her own.

If you're ready to open your heart and home to a sweet and affectionate feline companion who brings joy and warmth wherever she goes, Pixie is eagerly awaiting the chance to become your new best friend.

Has been 1st Vaccinated, Desexed, Microchipped.

Pixma has been in foster care since 18 March 2024, for 2 months
