Hi there, my name is Baby Cakes.

I was surrendered to Lort Smith after I was hit by a car and fractured my pelvis. Sadly my carers were not in a position to take me back.

I will now need to be an indoor only cat due to my pelvic injury - the world is a bit scary for me and I would hate to have another accident.

I can be a little shy to start off with however once I gain your trust I will be forever yours. I'm looking for someone who will be patient with me and allow me time to come out of my shell. For this reason a quiet home with no other animals or little ones would be the best fit for me.

I love nothing more than having cuddles on the couch, being brushed around my face and having a good old scratch on my scratching post.

If you think I sound like the perfect companion for you, please call the Adoption Hub for more information - 9321 7240.

Baby Cakes will be adopted with a disclaimer for a heart murmur, skin issues and implant from previous pelvic surgery.

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
