CAT OF THE WEEK – PRINCE Prince is a stunning 7 yo gentleman who has taken his title very seriously. He was not really putting any effort into impressing the passing humans. So Prince has taken up residence in his own private office and he is a changed chilled man! He would love you to […]

Cat of the Week – Nerone

Nerone, is a beautiful big 5yo boy, but definitely not for little children. He is more of a boxer type cat, affectionate when he wants to be, but will soon let you know if he has had enough. He loves a pat and scratch, but loves to play rough. Are you the ones to give […]


Hi Team Thought we’d share a 6 month update for Coco formerly known as Pusskin. She has settled in to family life so well and absolutely loves having lots of love from the 6 of us! The kids took a little while to feel comfortable with Coco as she was a little snappy at the […]

We saw Asher at CPS in 1990. He was a 4 month old skeleton, and we had to wait until he put on weight and passed his medical. We had him for 16 years, big wussy sooky boy, love him to bits, out of all the cats we have had, my ginger boy was so […]


I recently adopted Batcha from the Cat Protection Society and he has settled in like I never expected; like he knew he was at home as soon as he walked in the door. He is a stunner, I just adore him! I’ve never met a cat so chilled, Batcha is just a dream. He is […]

Have you met the Lovely Layla?

Layla is affectionate, sweet, playful and a joy to be around.  However, poor Layla does not enjoy the company of other cats at all, which makes it especially hard for her being in a shelter.  She is kept in the shelter office away from the stress of being around other cats but would much rather […]


Hello, We adopted Millie from the shelter almost two weeks ago now, and she has settled in surprisingly quickly.  She’s a bundle of relentless energy, and keeps us all on our toes.  She is an absolute delight. Our son, an only child, is overjoyed by her mischief. Here she is with our slightly perplexed dog […]

Batcha- A Special Kitty’s Plea- I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!

I’ve Been Adopted! Batcha is a beautiful young kitty, who we have fondly nicknamed ‘The Gruffalo’ because of his silky black coat and white tufts of hair in his ears! His beautiful long whiskers on his face, and his expressive eyes, melt your heart. He is extremely playful, loving and always wanting to be around […]


Three years ago now I adopted Fi. She is a lovely affectionate cuddle cat, and an amazing companion to my older Bengal. She’s the second cat I’ve adopted from you. I lost Annabelle of 15 years a few months before adopting Fi. Annie was beautiful, too. Thank you for doing the amazing work you do.


We adopted Klaus and have been smitten as a kitten since, he is such a beautiful, loving, affectionate kitten. He loves cuddles, belly rubs, play time and is getting along amazingly with his family. Klaus has settled in fantastically even after the second day. He’s confident and such a joy in our lives. We’re so […]

Angel’s Angel

Remember that 42 degree day Melbourne had a few weeks back? Most of us were stuck inside under the air conditioning or floating in a pool. One person, however, was not. And neither was a young kitten. Behind a store, in a cardboard box, was a severely dehydrated and unwell kitten. She was dumped there […]
