Oscar is two years’ old and he is looking for a loving new home.

He is desexed, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped.

He comes with a free bed and two day’s food.

His current owner Julie says:

“Oscar was rescued as a kitten from the pound. He had a very loud meow as a kitten – I am sure he was begging me to save him. He has grown into a beautiful affectionate lap cat. He shares his home with three other cats and three large dogs and a small dog. His favourite place to sleep is with my Golden Retriever in her kennel. As a kitten he suckled on my Golden Retriever who did not mind at all. I somehow think this is when the bond developed. His new owner has to love cats. He would be fabulous for an elderly person, a child or anyone really who loves a cat to sit on their lap. You are very welcome to view Oscar with no obligation.”

Julie has her hands full with all of these rescued pets and feel that Oscar needs more attention then she can provide.

If you would like to find out more about Oscar or if you would like Julie’s contact details email me at randa@dogsandcats.com.au or phone me on 0401 141 222.

Paws and Recover have two cats that require a short term foster home.

Their owner is unwell and is not expected to be in hospital for very long.

The cats are quite small and use a litter tray. One is a kitten about six months old and the other is a small brown Burmese-style cat. They need to be kept indoors.

Jacki has found emergency accommodation for them but this foster carer is short-term only.

If anybody can take one or both cats please call Jacki.

Jacki will have more details tomorrow on the length of time fostering is required and some photos. Jacki’s number is 0401 925737 at www.pawsandrecover.org

This is a very distressing and sad story.

Cheeky the female cat was living with an elderly lady all her life. Now when the lady has died, her son has sold her house and is moving to a unit.

He will surrender Cheeky this week Wednesday/Thursday -10th/11th April to the pound where we know that she will be put to death as she is 12 years old.

As you can see on the photos Cheeky is a beautiful girl. She is desexed. She is an indoor/outdoor cat but she mainly loves to be outside as her human mum’s garden is a green, lush oasis. Cheeky does not show any symptoms of any illness, has lovely shiny fur and bright eyes.

Here is Cheeky’s plea:

” I am a 12 year old lady, loved living with my brother in the garden of my human mum and coming home for tasty meals. My brother died a few years ago, and now my human mum is gone too. I am so scared that I have to die because nobody loves me now. Please give me a home.  I am healthy, independent and no bother to anybody. I want to live just for few more years … ”

Please give Cheeky a home (foster or permanent).

Please contact Teresa urgently on 0409 568 082 or email

A message from Dale:

Mitzy is my Dad’s 7yo desexed female cat.

Dad has moved to aged care and cannot take her with him. She is a beautiful tortoise shell colour.

She currently lives at Regents Park, and needs a new home ASAP. I have large dogs and am allergic to cats so I can’t take her.

Can anyone give her a loving home? Please invite all your cat-loving friends to the event, in the hope that they know someone who can take her.

My contact number if you needed is 0411740698

Thanks
Dale

Tiny Cupid and Topaz are two cats urgently in need of a foster home while their owner, a psychiatric patient, is in hospital.  Their mother loves them so much that she carried them to the hospital with her rather than leave them alone.  When she could not take them with her to hospital she walked carrying them all the way to her old vet in Manly as it was the only place she could imagine she could leave them safely before she could go back to the hospital to admit herself.  Unfortunately the vet is charging fees that she cannot possibly afford on her pension.  Perhaps you could send out the following blurb to volunteers:

The vet is charging $30 per day – as you can imagine on a pension when she she still has her others expenses this is basically impossible.

We are urgently looking to find two cats, Tiny Cupid and Topaz (their photos are on the facebook page), a home while their owner has been admitted to hospital with a mental illness. The owner  walked them to Manly from the Inner West as her old vet was the only person she could think of in her illness who would care for them. They are currently being held at the vet at Manly but the owner cannot possibly afford the fees to keep them there and is very upset is very distressed as she desperately needs them to be cared for.

The cats are clean, healthy, very well cared for indoor cats.  They are a little shy, but playful and social with other cats (neighbour cats are allowed to visit them at home) and humans once they relax. They will need a home for a few weeks possibly up to two or three months at most while Tully re

This is an urgent situation and has the added complication of us needing to arrange transport for the cats from Manly (Tully lives in the inner west). If anyone can help can you please call me on 0409 784 535 or email mmathas@gmail.com.

Kittens can be so funny!

We get so much enjoyment from watching our kitten Leroy playing – he is always playing! I love it when he runs across the room side-ways like a crab.

But of course using all that energy constantly means he also loves sleep.

Watching him sleep is like looking at and admiring a beautiful artwork. He gets into the best sleeping positions – here are just some..
