Cyrrus

Cyrrus

DSH - male - 4 months

Cyrrus and his 3 siblings, Clementine, Cobain and Chile were surrendered to DCH by a lovely family whose cat, Mimi (now desexed), had an unplanned pregnancy! As they have been socialised since birth, these gorgeous kittens are going to love finding their Forever Families and getting all that special attention which they deserve.

Cyrrus is a little sweetie who loves company and will often meow if he finds himself alone. He loves back rubs and cuddles, and has become a very confident and chunky little guy. Cyrrus is curious and playful and has developed a beautifully thick and soft coat.

Cyrrus will suit any family who will give him lots of love and attention.He also loves our resident cats (unfortunately they don’t like kittens), and our big cat-friendly dogs. Cyrrus also loves to follow people around the house to see what’s going on, and runs to the front door to greet visitors

His tail is like an antenna which indicates his mood - normally it stands straight up, as Cyrrus is a happy little guy!

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming/flea-treatment, first vaccination (of 3) and desexing - Cyrrus has now had all 3 of his kitten vaccinations. These kittens are also litter-trained and socialised with other kittens.

Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in meeting/adopting Cyrrus. If you are renting, please ensure that you have approval for a cat BEFORE you lodge interest.

You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal.

Cyrrus has been in foster care since 12 February 2021, for 2 months

Echo

Echo

Domestic Short Hair - female - 5 months and 3 weeks

Echo and her brother Elvis were rescued from under a house in Macquarie Fields and were then surrendered into DCH care.

Echo is such a sweet little marble Tabby who absolutely loves pats and attention. Echo came into foster care with what seemed to be cat flu but she did not respond to any antibiotics or treatment and still had great trouble breathing. In addition, this tiny girl is still only 1kg at nearly 6 months old.

UPDATE 15/04/21
On the 7th April, Echo was anaesthetised at Rossmore Vet Hospital, and a large growth could be seen down her throat. The growth was removed and Echo was given a cortisone injection, plus a 5 day course of antibiotic injections.

The next few weeks will determine if this has been a success but so far, so good - Echo has put on 200g in a week and her breathing seems normal!

Fingers crossed for Echo! 😻

This gentle-natured, affectionate kitten deserves the proper care and treatment so she can go on to find a special forever family. Any help with her vet costs would be very much appreciated.

Echo has been in foster care since 22 December 2020, for 3 months

Tasha

Tasha

DMH - female - 3 months and 4 weeks

My name is Tasha, I came from a group of 4 and did not know people until I came to live with my foster mum. Apparently, I was really hissy and spitty to begin with, but now I accept pats and relax with a purr. Although I have come a long way I still get a bit scared at times so please be gentle when handling me. I'm doing my very best to become more social and have progressed to being comfortable around everyone in the household. My favourite social time is string toy playtime and food time, definitely food time.

During my time in foster I have learned to be more trustful, for instance I now sleep out in the open and am happy to be picked up for a quick cuddle when I am feeling secure and relaxed. I even join my mum on her bed for night sleeps.

I have been around the household doggy and even shared his bed for naps.
I play with the other kitty cats, and like my siblings, I also love cat grass.........that stuff really is awesome. My favourite treat is the dine creamy treats. My mum says I have very good manners when it comes to food.

I am looking for a forever home willing to be patient and allow me to develop trust and flourish over time. So if you would like some company and would love to see me grow into a lovely young fur lady, then feel free to make contact. We would love to here from you.

I am vet checked, microchipped, desexed, flea/worm treated, and my vaccinations are up to date.

Tasha has been in foster care since 29 January 2021, for 2 months

Elvis

Elvis

Domestic Short Hair - male - 5 months and 3 weeks

Elvis and his sister, Echo, came into DCH foster care at about 8 weeks old after they were found living under a house in Macquarie Fields.

Elvis is a very playful and curious young man who is beginning to realise that people aren’t so bad (and they have treats!)

This beautiful Tabby boy with the chiselled chin, usually does do a runner when he knows you want to pick him up, making little purrs and trills as he goes, like it's a game to him! However once you have him in your arms, he doesn't fight at all to get away and succumbs to all the love and cuddles!

Elvis will usually fall asleep right next to me or behind my shoulder, on the lounge. Elvis has progressed really well with his social skills but he will really benefit from a quieter home with only 1-2 people to focus on and trust. Elvis gets on well with other cats and kittens, as well as cat-friendly dogs.

Elvis had a rough start to life but he absolutely deserves a loving Forever Family to call his own.

The $225 adoption fee includes microchipping, worming, first vaccination and desexing. Elvis is also litter-trained and socialised with other foster kittens and must be kept as an INSIDE ONLY cat.

Please use the "Send enquiry email" link below, if you have any questions or if you are interested in adopting.

Elvis is desexed and is ready to go to his new home now.

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 this kitten.

Elvis has been in foster care since 22 December 2020, for 3 months

Frosty & Strikey

Frosty & Strikey

Dsh - male - 3 years and 5 months

These slender boys were adopted from DCH as bonded kittens in 2017, then age 2 months. 

Unfortunately, their mum has had to surrender them.  They were in a cattery for the first 3 weeks because we'd been unable to find a carer for them, but they are now all cosy in a lovely large home complete with a human servant and a kitty friend.

DCH always takes back their animals previously adopted from us - regardless of the circumstances. 

The boys would love a furever home together soon.

Our ginger boy (Strikey) is the more adventurous of the two and is happy to play with his carer's resident kitty. Frosty is a little more cautious and tends to run and hide if there are strange noises or unexpected visitors so may take a little longer to settle into his new home.

Both boys love a good head rub, in fact Strikey has taken to sleeping next to his carer just in case he can get a head rub during the night and he's never far away when his carer settles on the couch for a night in watching TV.

Our boys are looking for an indoor only home so if you are looking for a couple of more mature kitties to join your family who like lots of attention but who are also happy to laze around in a warm sunny spot these are the boys for you.

Frosty & Strikey has been in foster care since 05 March 2021, for 1 month

Bryce

Bryce

DSH - male - 3 months and 4 weeks

My name is Bryce, I came from a group of 4 and did not know people until I came to live with my foster mum. Apparently, I was really hissy to begin with, but now I love being in the same space as everyone. I enjoy getting pats and will relax with a purr. Although I have come a long way I can sometimes get scared, especially if there are new humans in the house. Having said that, I have learned to trust and have become more social. My favourite social time is string toy playtime and food time, definitely food time.

I am learning to improve my manners everyday, and have come out of my shell. I am happy to sleep out in the open and often visit my mum in bed for cuddles. I am also happy to be handled gently for a quick cuddle when I am feeling secure and relaxed. I love spending some quiet time high up on our scratchy post looking out into the yard, it's so relaxing.

I have been around the household doggy and even shared his bed for naps.
I play with the other kitty cats, and like my siblings, I also love cat grass.........that stuff really is awesome. I wouldn't say no to that creamy dine treat either.

I am looking for a forever home willing to be patient and allow me time to develop trust and settle in. As I still get scared sometimes, it is recommended I move into a household without young children. So if you are happy to be my forever buddy and watch me grow into a loving fur gentleman, then feel free to make contact. We would love to her from you.

I am vet checked, microchipped, desexed, flea/worm treated, and my vaccinations are up to date.

Bryce has been in foster care since 29 January 2021, for 2 months

Oliver

Oliver

DSH - male - 3 months and 4 weeks

My name is Oliver, I came from a group of 4 and did not know people until I came to live with my foster mum. Yes I was a wild child, but have now come so far that I have changed my ways. Before I was hissy and scared, now my mum just has to look at me and my purr engine turns on. She says its pretty loud too. Yes, I am a real smoochy boy.

During my time in foster I was taught some good manners like sharing and being polite to others, including the doggy in the house - for some reason he just can't get enough of me. We, and the other kitty cats, just hang out and play around all day.

I am now ready to find my forever home. Im not too fussy, but I do have some conditions......toys and treats, oh I love my treats, especially those dine stick thingys. I also love cat grass, that stuff is awesome.

I am vet checked, microchipped, desexed, flea/worm treated, and my vaccinations are up to date.

If you are looking for an addition to your family then feel free to make contact. We would love to hear from you.

Oliver has been in foster care since 29 January 2021, for 2 months
