Hi my name is Gypsy,

I don't mind saying that I think I'm quite beautiful! I have the most piercing green eyes and amazing torti colour coat to match! I love cuddles and head pats, I just can't get enough.

I was from another shelter and one of their beautiful staff members had to adopt me because I was so cute and adorable, they could not resist even though I am FIV positive.

I was unfortunately surrendered to Lort Smith because my previous carer's cat did not seem to like me. I tried to befriend him but he was not happy to have me around. I am best suited to a home as an only pet and need to be an indoor-only kitty due to my FIV.

I would love nothing more than a home where I can give and receive cuddles and have a warm lap to sleep on. 

If I sound like a great fit for you, please come and say hi! I would love to meet you.

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
