Hello there, my name is Millie.

I was recently surrendered to Lort Smith when my elderly owner passed away and unfortunately I was left with no one to care of me.

I have recently been told by the vet that I am in great health and I know it's true as I feel like a spring chicken!

My new carer needs to like giving pats and having me curl up next to them while we watch movies together. A calm and quite home where I can put my paws up and relax would be fanstastic!

I have lived indoor/outdoor before so if you have a secure yard I could come and lay next to you in the sunshine while you plant some cat grass for me.

See you soon!

Compatibility

  • Suits teenager

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
