Owner finds cat while browsing Melbourne rescue centre after five years apart



A MAN has met his pet cat for the first time in five years after spotting the Balinese feline while browsing a Melbourne rescue centre’s website. Mitcham’s Michael Close left cat Chopper with his mother before moving to Kuala Lumpur to be closer to his wife’s family while expecting their first child. However, Chopper — named after Mark ‘Chopper’ Read because he is missing part of an ear — was adopted by another woman after not getting along with his mother’s cat. Chopper wound up at Greensborough’s Cat Protection Society of Victoria after the woman died about three months ago.

Liam’s Loving Life

Hi Everyone,


I just wanted to send you an update about our new little man Liam!


We’ve had him now for about a month and he is doing wonderfully!

He has made an almost friend in our existing cat Luna and is beginning to tolerate our dog Cad.

Loves being brushed, getting cuddles and purrs like its going out of style!


He has begun being quite vocal and with squeak/meew your ear off if you let him!

I’ve attached some photos of him in his favourite spot!


Thanks So Much for our little fur baby,

Emily, Thomas and Josephineliam liam1 liam2

Riley’s all Smiles

Hi There,

We adopted Riley on October 3 and she quickly settled into life with us. While it’s only been a few weeks, it feels like she has always been a part of our family.

Thank you for introducing us to this beautiful cat and for all you do with the others.

love Janette and Molly and Riley xxx


Big Boy Boris




I adopted Boris in September this year. Just shy of one month later he is well and truly the king of the castle. Not that it took him long – on day one he plonked himself on the couch and went to sleep. My partner loves him, as do I. And as long as Boris gets plenty of food, cuddles and someone to occasionally bite and run circles around, he’s happy too. I’ve attached a few photo’s – there are many, many more though, because he’s such a poser!

We love him to bits!! (despite the fact that he’s been shedding like a cat going from deepest Antarctica to the Sahara desert).

“I’m coming Home”, sings Lionel

Hi Folks,

A couple of months ago my partner and I adopted 10yr old Linus (Lional Richie) and we just wanted to report in:

He is very loving and very loved, his new brother and sister are slowly warming to him (the kind of slow that only cats can do) but he’s not too fussed by them as long as he has Adams lap to sit on. Adam in currently trying to study and Linus takes every, and i mean every opportunity to slug all over Adam and his notes.

We’ve attached some pics for your web site if you like.

Thank you for bringing him into our lives,


Jen & Adam (…and Hyde, Ember & Linus)
