Adopted

Hi everyone, my name is Jinny

I have previously lived as an outdoor cat but this wasn’t ideal and I’d much rather spend my time indoors with my new humans.

I have a gentle nature and will make a lovely companion. I am very relaxed and perfectly happy to entertain myself while you are at work/school during the day.

I am FIV positive which means I must remain indoors only. I should be the only cat of the household please.

An outdoor cat enclosure would be marvelous. I’d love to be able to sit and watch the birds and trees safely outside.

As I adjust to my new lifestyle it is recommended I be adopted into a quiet home with no young children.

If you have room on your couch for a soft and snuggly housemate – look no further!

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
