Hi there, I'm Poppy!

I was recently surrendered to Lort Smith along with four of my feline friends when my carer passed away and unfortunately there was no one to look after us.

Although I am used to having lots of cats around I am hoping to find a home where I am the only child and can receive all of the attention. I can get a little jealous when others try to steal my limelight so I would probably suggest no young children either.

I may take a couple of days to adjust to my new home but when I do I will provide nothing but love and entertainment! I really like toys with ribbons and strings so providing me with these will be great fun for all!

Unfortunately I have been told that all of those late night snacks I enjoy have caused me to become quite plump, I hope my new family can help me with my weight loss journey over the next few months as this will help keep me in perfect health.

I would love to meet you so please pop into the Adoption Hub and say hello!

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
