Hello, I'm Izzy.

I was surrendered to Lort Smith after my owner brought home a new baby and found they could no longer provide me with the attention I deserved. Since then I have been adopted twice but returned due to allergies. I am so desperately wanting to find my forever home.

I am always being told that I am a lovely girl with a gentle and sweet personality. I can be a bit timid though and need time to warm up.

I am very affectionate towards humans and love their company, I am a BIG fan of snuggling up somewhere warm and having a good nap. I have never been outdoors, this doesn't worry me though as I love to stay inside and mingle with my family.

I will need to make sure that my new family is ok with having an indoor kitty. I am very laid back and would love to be able to curl up on the couch or even sleep on the end of your bed (which I have been known to do). I have lived with other cats before so if you already have an existing friendly feline, we may be able to be friends.

Please call the Adoption Hub on 9321 7240 if I sound like I could be your next family member.

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
