Hello, my name is Charlie!

I am looking for a home to spend my twilight years. I'm very handsome and require a good brush to stay that way. Although I'm older I still act like a young one - jumping and climbing on things - I've got plenty of life in me!

If you are after an older yet still active gentleman please call the Adoption Hub to have a chat about me. We could make a lovely team, you and I! See you soon...

**Charlie will be adopted out with a disclaimer. He is currently well clinically and his recent blood and urine test were essentially normal. However due to his age, we cannot exclude very early start of illnesses so we recommend Charlie to be rechecked at a vet in 6mths (check + reweigh + repeat his blood test ). This recheck should be brought forward if Charlie shows any signs of concerns.**

* Needs a special diet of Royal Canin Ragdoll food only.

Compatibility

  • Good with cats
  • Suits children 7 plus
  • Good with other cats

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
