Hi everyone, my name is Cosmo
I am a handsome gent who has previously lived with a quiet dog and cat.
I can take some time to settle and trust, but once I do – I’m super affectionate and loving. I also enjoy my independence so I’m perfectly happy to enjoy my own company while you are off at work.
I do have feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) but do not let this deter you. I am in good health, I just require yearly vet checks and good dental food to help keep my dental health in check. Because I my FIV+ and have a fair complexion, it’s imperative that I am an indoor only kitty.
Please contact the Adoption Hub to arrange a time to meet me – I’m keen to find my new home!
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
