Hi everyone, my name is Johno
I am sweet, affectionate boy who loves to snuggle up on your lap, receive belly rubs, massages and just generally hang out with my human friends.
I have recently been in foster care where it was discovered that I am very fond of children. I also lived with two dogs in my previous home and we all got along very well.
I am positive for feline immunodeficiency virus but overall in good health. I have never lived with another cat so for both of these reasons it would be best if I ran the show by myself. Please don’t be deterred by my being FIV positive. I can still live a long, happy and healthy life! It just means I need regular vet checks and I need to be kept indoors – unless of course you have a secure outdoor enclosure <wink wink>.
Please contact the Adoption Hub to arrange a time to meet me, you won’t be disappointed.
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
