We’ve had Oriel and Pickle (formerly Oreo and Rascal) for nearly 3 months now. They were very timid, anxious, and shy when we first got them, but day by day they are slowly coming out of their shells. Oriel is the more friendly/outgoing, inquisitive and adventurous of the two and she loves sleeping in her pillow pet fort. Pickle is still very timid, but she enjoys pats when she feels safe and relaxed, and she just adores being near the windows and observing the world outside. They are both very playful and cheeky little boofheads but they are so very cute and becoming more and more affectionate as they grow 🙂
The days of ‘How Much is that Doggy in the Window (woof woof!)’ are over…
As awareness of the atrocities of puppy mills increase, people are turning to adoption to find their forever friends. And we couldn’t be happier.
This Christmas time, if you are thinking of surprising a loved one with a cat or kitten, surprise them instead with a trip to a shelter, where they can let their forever friend choose them. You can find a list of shelters here.
Rebecca surprised her Mum with a trip to the CPS shelter around Christmas last year. Rebecca said it was an instantaneous bond between her Mum and now-adopted cat, Silky.
“It took all of 30 seconds for the pair to attach. So we took Silky home. Two days of getting the lay of house and that was it; Mum and Silky were in love and Silky wouldn’t leave her side”
Cat Protection Society offers cats and kittens for adoption. Kittens are $110, Teenagers are $90 and Adults are $70. All cats and kitten come desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and go home in a free carry box. Our opening hours over the festive season can be viewed here.
Above all, do not buy a kitten, or any pet, from a Pet Shop. Here’s why
We hope you and your new furbaby have a very Merry Christmas and long and happy life together

Total Eclipse of the Heart – Bonnie Tyler
Once upon a time I had a home of my own,
Now I’m sitting here all alone.
There’s something you can do,
total eclipse of the heart.
Every now and then
I get a little bit helpless
And I’m lying like a cat in your arms
Every now and then
I get a little bit angry
If you have a dog, then this is goodbye
Every now and then
I get a little bit terrified
But then I see the look in your eyes
(Turn Around, bright eyes)
And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
If you can look past my under-bite
We’ll be holding on forever….
Make me your forever cat.
-Love Bonnie, the British Shorthair.
Our in-house famous moggie, Bonnie, is looking for her forever home. She’s a Nine year old veteran of the arts/ retired performer, and is looking for somewhere where she can escape the paparazzi and live a normal life. Bonnie has a distinct under-bite which makes her look a little angry, but she’s far from it; Bonnie is affectionate, full of personality and doesn’t like dogs. Bonnie will need regular grooming (she’s used to a certain lifestyle…) and a home where she’s indoors and free to do as she pleases, in her own time.
What a Great Cat
Edmond who has been renamed Bernard has settled in beautifully. He is a great cat and he and the dog have sorted out how to live together. He has a huge appetite and is a wonderful mouser! He is completely house trained and goes outside to his patch as he needs to. Thank you for bringing him into our lives.

We would like to update you on our kitten, Willow. Willow was adopted July this year and from being such a timid and scared 5 week old she has now become queen of the castle. Willow is feisty, bossy to the dog and extremely playful. She is such a beautiful cat and we are so thankful we found her!

We adopted the wonderfully perfect Pearl on Saturday (December 20) and as you can see from the photos, she has already made herself at home! Our older cat Bella (from CPS 2003) isnâ€™t too sure about Pearl yet, but it is early days.
We wanted to give an older cat a forever home, and it was love at first sight when we saw six year old Pearl.
We are looking forward to getting to know her over many years, and also to many years of brushing her beautiful fur.
