Hi my name is Ginger.

I am a gorgeous cat inside and out! Some would say I am the doppelganger of the famous Puss in Boots, especially when I am perched up on someone's shoulder.

I found my way to Lort Smith during a rather tough time in my very short life and I still occasionally have a slight limp to prove it. This minor issue doesn't affect how I move around or how excited I get when the toys come out, but it does mean I need to be an indoor only cat.

My hobbies include sitting on my humans, exploring, playing with toys, snuggling up to my panda, lapping up cuddles and enjoying dinner time.

I have been waiting for my new home for quite awhile now and it is starting to get me down, so If you are looking for a handsome, confident, outgoing and super affectionate boy come in to Lort Smith and say hello.

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
