WHERE ARE THEY NOW – Lenny

I renamed him to Caesar because he’s now the king of my house. He’s turned into such a playful cat in the short two months I’ve had him. He will do literally anything for food or treats and is always up for a snuggle. He’s been such a blessing and I’m so happy to have him as apart of my little family.

 

Thanks to all of you guys at Cat Protection for all the work that you guys do and for helping me find my wonderful fur baby.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW – Coco

Coco has settled in to her new home beautifully. She has been purring constantly, marching and is adjusting so well to life with us!! We adore her.

 

Here are a couple of pics of Coco on her first day at home.

Thanks Belle & Family x

 

 

WHERE ARE THEY NOW – Miss Lilly

Please meet Miss Lilly. She has settled in very well, actually I do say that she owns the house I just pay the bills lol. She greets me at the door when I get home waiting for a belly scratch and a cuddle. I have absolutely fallen in love with her.

I would like to thank you all for introducing me to her.

From a very happy customer.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW – Lakshmi

Lakshmi is happy. She gets brushed now every day  for hair balls and some olive oil to lap up!

Her life consists of snoozing in the sun, in fact snoozing for up to 16 hours when I’m out, sniffing everything, attacking cotton threads and the scratching post, jumping up on her cat tree to eat her dental bikkies and bio raw kangaroo meat, lots of head buts and cuddles and purring and some occasional adventures out on the balcony eating grass and watching birds and catching flies? or out on the front landing when neighbouring cat and dog are absent and even occasionally doing a circuit of the property at night when there are no other animals or people around!

Aah it’s a cats life! She’s unimpressed with being picked up but slowly getting more trusting. Definitely wants to be in charge of her life and choose when she does or doesn’t do everything!

  

Black Cat Appreciation Day – August 17

“A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.” – Groucho Marx

Did you know that black cats are less likely to be adopted from shelters and rescues? It’s true.

In order to give the black cats of this world a little leg-up, Black Cat Appreciation Day was created. And, as the title suggests, it’s a day where us two leggeds appreciate our black four legged felines. Here’s what we love about black cats;

 

  1. They’re cats (seems obvious, but cats are the best)
  2. Hide and Seek in the dark with a black cat will prove endless hours of entertainment
  3. The sense of achievement you get when you finally get a pic of your black cat that isn’t fuzzy, a black blob with no eyes, or black blob with demonic looking eyes…priceless
  4. They’re basically miniature panthers
  5. Black (fur) goes with everything
  6. Their fur is SO silky! (Pantene? Head & Shoulders?)
  7. In some cultures, black cats are considered good luck
  8. Black cats just seem effortlessly cool 
  9. Any colour collar goes well on them
  10. But most of all they are beautiful creatures that deserve just as much love as the other cats in the world.

So next time you’re considering adopting (or fostering) a furry friend into your home, please consider a black cat.

If you are looking to adopt a black cat, we have 2 year old Misha looking for a loving forever home. She’s super friendly and very pretty and will be the purrfect addition to your family.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW – Harper

Hi there. My name is Jen and I adopted a kitten from you back in March this year and thought I’d give you an update on her. Little was known about her when she came to you and she didn’t have a name yet so I gave her the name Harper. I should have named her shadow though because she goes where ever I do. She had no problems settling into the house and knows where her room is. After a few weeks of her being here I slowly introduced her to the dogs in the house, one at a time and the quiet one first so she didn’t get scared. But she loves the dogs, I think she’s even slightly confused and thinks she’s one of them. She steals their toys to make them play with her and they all get along perfectly. I didn’t want to let her outside because I was nervous. I’d hold her and show her a round so she knew what everything was. A week ago I let her come outside without me holding her and she loves it. She runs in the garden and falls asleep in the sun. I’m always outside when she is just in case and she’ll run to the door when she hears me get up or when she wants to go in. She has a great personality, she’s very clever and relaxed. She also has a cheeky side to her which I love. She loves to be cuddled and will try and lay on your lap no matter how you’re sitting. I couldn’t be happier with her and how she has adapted to her new home. I look forward to the many years to come with her.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW – Jake

Jake

Steph adopted her fur baby Jake 2 years ago, and he’s been following her around ever since.

Jake’s favourite pastimes include; sitting in cardboard boxes, hogging the heater, sleeping in linen closets and being generally nosy.

This quirky little fella couldn’t be any cuter if he tried!

A Slippery Start to Life

Elsie didn’t have the best start to life… when you’re starved, covered in oil and hanging out solo in a garage, there’s only one way your life can go from there.

Up.

And up Elsie’s went. The little trouper was brought to Cat Protection Society underweight at just 800grams, unhappy, and her entire little body was covered in some sort of oil. The Vet team worked tirelessly and around the clock to wash the substance off her and entice her to eat. Our Vet took her home for the first two days and then she went home with Vet Nurse, Trish.

In the loving care of Trish, the meek little kitten began to eat and gain a healthy amount of weight. It seemed the more weight she put on, the more her personality began to shine through.

“By the time she was at the mininum weight for speying, she had become a very loved member of our family” Trish said.

Elsie briefly came back to CPS for her desexing operation, and again, Vet Nurse Trish took her home to recover. The little kitten, not so meek anymore (in fact, quite the opposite) decided Trish’s family would make a perfect forever home. So Trish, not having much choice, adopted Elsie the next day. It was a official: Elsie’s rough trot was over.

Now, you would barely recognise Elsie.

“She absolutely rules the house. She lives with 2 dogs and another cat (and our other foster kitten),” said Trish.

“She had a fairly rough start but has not looked back.. She drives me crazy on a daily basis!”

 

 

WHERE ARE THEY NOW – Oscar and Mia

Oscar and Mia have settled very well in their new home. They love lots of snuggles and cuddles.

They both love my yard, they are very good listeners and very affectionate.

They are both doing well and growing; they are both funny cats and Mia is a climber.

Oscar is a lap cat and loves to snuggle with my little one.
