Hello, I'm Mork (the handsome Tabby) and I'm here with my sister Mindy.We were both recently surrendered to Lort Smith together after our carer sadly passed away.Mindy is not only my sister but my bestest friend in the entire world, this is why we are searching for a home together.I am an incredibly smoochy boy and love to receive attention. Once I have settled into my new home I will be searching for a comfy lap to sit on where I can have some cuddles. My sister is a little more reserved than I am, she enjoys the relaxed lifestyle and is happy to find a nice cosy spot and spend her afternoons napping. She can be a little shy initally but once I show her that there is nothing to be scared of she will venture out to receive gentle pats.A quiet home with no children would be perfect for us two. I also like to play with toys, chasing little bouncy balls is a favourite passtime of mine so if you could provide these I would be so happy!

Come and say hello!

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
