Hello, it's Wendy here.

I was surrendered to the shelter several months ago after my carer moved away and did not take me with them.

Sadly, I had never been shown much love in my life so I was a little unsure of humans and what to do when I saw one. I have been in foster care working on my social skills for some time and my carer believes I am now ready for a new life of happiness!

I love being petted and receiving lots of face tickles. I am hoping for a home with a quite person who has had cats before and understands that I may take a little while to settle into my new home.

I am not aggressive in anyway, just a little shy, but I'm working really hard on this! To me, the outdoor world is a scary place so I would like to remain strictly indoors please.

I hope to meet my new humans soon - I'm so excited for my happily ever after.

Compatibility

  • Good with other cats

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
