How do you do, my name is Misty!

I'm a lovely lass looking for a new home. Let me tell you a bit about myself... I was surrended to Lort Smith after both of my hindlegs were injured in an accident. They are much better now but my right leg is shorter than my left. It doesn't bother me though - but I simply must be an indoor only cat because of this.

I adore food and will eat my way through just about anything. I love head tickles and enjoy rubbing my head all over people. The scratching post is a joy for me. Such fun!

I'm not a fan of other animals as I like to be the only one getting the attention. Some may call that jealousy, I just call it being honest. Do I sound like the right lady for you? If so, come down and meet me at the Lort Smith Adoption Hub. The friendly staff will introduce us...

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
