Gday, Indy here!

I was recently surrendered to Lort Smith when my previous carers were unable to provide me with the attention I need.

I'm a beautiful big man that enjoys nothing more than my own spot on the couch where I can put my paws up and watch the footy with a cold can of cat milk. I love big pats on my cheeks and chin and having a good ol' back scratch.

If you have work or school during the day I am more than happy to keep myself entertained. As I am FIV positive I will need to remain an indoor only bloke and I would love to be able to spend my time snoozing on a window ledge or even better, have an outdoor enclosure I can pop in and out of.

Don't stress about the FIV thing, it just means I need regular annual check ups and to remain indoors. I can still live a long and healthy life!

I have been told I am quite the character and can always keep my human friends entertained. I am best suited to a home with no other animals and no young children.

Come and say hello to me at the Adoption Hub!

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
