Hello friends, my name is Mr Black.
I'm a handsome and charming man who needs a place to call home. I have had a rough trot of late so I'm hoping to find a nice quiet place to relax and live out my twilight years. Having said that, I am 8-years-young so still have quite a few years up my sleeve.
I have tested positive for FIV which simply means that I must remain indoors or in a secure cat run. I also need regular annual check ups.
It is really important that I live in a stress free home, this means I am less likely to become unwell. A nice quiet and relaxing home where I can soak up the sunshine will be just perfect.
I have a sweet nature and do enjoy a good pat so if you think you could provide me with my perfect home, come and say hello and spend some time with me in the Adoption Hub!
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
