Adopted

Hi everyone, my name is Sunny

I’m a shy middle aged man who is currently searching for the perfect forever home.

I was surrendered to the Lort Smith as my carer was sadly allergic to me. They tried everything to make it work but sadly it was best I go and find a new family to spoil me.

I’m seeking quiet life, indoor lifestyle. One with no children or other animals please. I can be a little bit shy when meeting new people, but if you show me a bit of love, I will come right out of my shell!

A true gentleman, I don’t ask for much in life. Somewhere safe to live, some nutritious food, lots of love and some water from a running tap, the last one is a bit of a weird request I know, but I do prefer to drink running water.

Please note that I do have mild dental disease, and the vets have recommended that I stick to a dental diet only. I may require a dental in the next couple of years so annual vet checks are a must!

I can’t wait to find my new family. If you think I might be the perfect feline for your family, please fill out an 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
