Hi there, Loka is my name,

I am looking for a new home. I will need to go to an experienced cat owner because I am a little worried at present. You see, life for me was just great until I was hit by a car last year and ended up having my jaw dislocated and my poor old head received a shock. 

As a result of my accident, my eyes are now permanently dilated and I have been left partially blind.

I have spent time recovering in foster care and my carer thought I was a lovely chap with gentle persuasion. I am not a fan of being picked up but do like a soft pat around the face. I love being brushed gently although I may be a little sensitive on my left side. 

I am FIV positive so an indoor lifestyle is a must for me.

I will be Foster to Adopt to start so that we can get used to each other before making the final decision.

If you can show me love and patience, please call the Adoption Hub to find out more - 9321 7240.

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
