Hi everyone, my name is Rosemary

I’m a very pretty young lady who is looking for a forever family to spoil me like the princess I am.

When I was surrendered to Lort Smith the staff noticed I was a bit wobbly on my feet. I’ve had a number of vet assessments, tests and even a visit to a feline specialist during my time at Lort Smith. The vets have come to the conclusion that I’m always going to be a bit wobbly on my feet and this is likely congenital. The staff will happily speak to you about this in more detail if you are interested in meeting me.

I’m seeking a home where I will be kept safely indoors at all time, because of my unsteady gait I wouldn’t be able to get away from dangers.

Being the only cat in the home is important to me, I like to be the center of attention! I’m also hoping for a home with no young children please.

If you are interested in making an appointment to meet me, please fill out the expression of interest form.

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
