Greetings to you all! These two divine felines are searching for a loving family to whisk them away. They are both very interesting and loveable cats.
Fez is a proud Burmese lady with lots to say! She has plenty of confidence and charisma to accompany her pretty face and she simply adores affection!
Macchiato is equally as easy on the eye but prefers to let Fez do all the talking and walking. He is more of a solitary, quiet boy but he certainly won't pass up a good chin tickle when it's on offer! Macchiato is very content being in Fez's shadow until the snacks come out.. He forgets he's a bit of a shy one when he sees the bowl!
Fez and Macchiato love one another very much indeed. If you can't find them close by it's because they're snuggled up together in their igloo or under your doona having a nap. They like to do things together, so of course we wish for them to stay together! Please call the Adoption Centre for more info about them or come and pay them a visit!

ADOPTING AN ANIMAL
Things to consider before adopting an animal
Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.
Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.
Before you decide, have you considered the following?
- Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
- Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
- Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
- Do I have time for obedience training?
- If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
- Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
- Does the whole family want a pet?
- Will the pet be allowed inside?
- Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
- Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.
Can I afford a pet?
Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:
- Weekly animal food bills and necessities
- Yearly council registration
- Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
- Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
- Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
- Ongoing grooming
- Boarding fees for human holidays
- Enrichment like training, toys etc
