Ola' I'm Carlos.

As a young kitten I was found living at a mechanics all alone. The staff took pity on me and decided to take me in and let me live at their car shop. I was their poster boy!

Everyone would bring their cars in for a tune up but really they were coming to see me! I would sit in the office and greet everyone that arrived. I'm quite social to that extent, I do enjoy a good pat but I'm also a giant couch potato that can spend all day snoozing quite easily.

Unfortunately I was surrendered after the mechanics had a new alarm system installed, I was setting it off every night as I walked from my bed to my food. Oh, did I tell you how much I love food?? I love it a little too much. So much so that the vet has told me I need to shed a few kilos. How rude!

If you are looking for a mate who you can keep indoors and provide lots of love for, then please come and meet me. I won't disappoint.

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
