Hi everyone, my name is Bob and Dylan is my brother
I’m the black and white one and Dylan is the silvery tabby.
We began the first few months of our lives fending for ourselves in a factory, trying to avoid humans wherever possible. But Lort Smith worked their magic and found us a loving home together.
Flash forward three years and we sadly need a new home, through no fault of our own. We can still be shy initially, but we are very affectionate and full of character once we get to know you.
When strangers visit it’s straight under the couch for me! When I feel safe I’ll venture out for head rubs and lap cuddles. Dylan on the other hand, is a bit braver and more inquisitive. It doesn’t take him long before he wants his belly rubbed or his hair brushed.
We love to cuddle together yet don’t mind time apart. We are indoor only cats, seeking a quiet home environment. Some toys and a scratch post in the sun would do us nicely during the day and a comfy lap to snuggle on of an evening would be icing on the cake!
We are currently in foster care so please contact the Adoption Hub to arrange a meet and greet.
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.
- 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.
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
