Peep

Peep

DSH - female - 3 months and 3 weeks

Although she was raised in care since she was rescued from the local animal shelter with her brother Bo when they were only 4 weeks old and came into foster care, Peep is a timid little kitten who is happy to do her own thing and is comfortable in her own company.

Peep is most happy doing her own thing but she will also join in games with the other cats and kittens. Peep will join her foster mum on the end of her bed of an evening, and as she gets more comfortable with the world she is cuddling closer and closer. She has also started joining her foster mum in her home office while she continues to work from home.

Peep will need a family that can give her the time and space she needs to become comfortable in her new home, and the company of an older resident cat may help her with this process.

Peep has access outside via a cat run in her foster home, but for her own safety she is looking for forever family that can offer her the protection of growing up inside (or safety outside access).

As well as being raised with her brother Bo, Peep has been raised with other foster kittens, as well as the resident cats, dogs and bunny and she happily co-habits with them all.

Peep has been desexed and while she is ready for meet and greets now she will be ready to move to her new home from Friday 3rd June. Peep has had her first kitten vaccination, 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 18 yrs old and an Australian citizen or Permanent Resident to adopt an animal from DCH.

Peep has been in foster care since 26 May 2022, for 4 weeks

Oliver Brown (or OB, or Mr Brown)

Oliver Brown (or OB, or Mr Brown)

domestic short hair - male - 1 year

Oliver Brown came into care as a stray. He was living in the bushes near a shopping center, competing for food amongst other stray cats and ibises. He stood out due to his highly friendly nature and would approach and beg for food while the others would run and hide. Woefully thin when he first came into care, he has since started to put some weight on and his coat is starting to become shiny and fuller.
