Hi there, my name is Kramer,

I am a lovely confident boy who would suit an experienced cat owner as I can be strong-willed. I am affectionate, smoochy and enjoy lots of conversations. In fact the staff at Lort Smith think that maybe my hearing is somewhat impaired as I do tend to raise my voice.

I have recently been transferred from another shelter so my history with other animals is unknown, however the staff feel I would probably be best being by myself as I can get a little stressed.

Cat scratch posts and toys are a must in order to keep me entertained, and I do insist on regular grooming to keep me looking my very best. I need to remain indoors to protect me from the harsh sunshine.

Please come to the Adoption Hub and meet me, I'll be waiting!

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
