Hello, Mr Grey here.

If you could have seen me two months ago you would not have recognised me. I was a complete mess with horribly matted fur, scabs all over my body and a very sad look on my face.

I had never experienced love before arriving at Lort Smith, boy was I missing out!! I absoloutely LOVED my first pat. It changed my whole world. Suddenly I went from a depressed man to possibly the happiest I have ever felt.  After a visit to the salon I was sent into foster care where I worked on my manners and received loads more pats and head scratches. My foster carer even referred to me as a 'mummy's boy!'

I am now in the Adoption Hub ready to find my perfect family, someone who is experienced with cats and doesn't mind the occasional hiss when I get a fright.

I will need a home with no young children or other felines. I would be most happy living in a relaxed home with one or two people who will enjoy giving me plenty of pats and brushes. I'm not overly fond of being picked up but hey, who is?

Please come and meet me, I'd love to let you pat me!

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
