Could this magnificent lady be the “Apple” of your eye?

Apple is 11 years old and looks amazing for her age! She is a friendly affectionate chatty lady when she knows you, she will need the time to trust you.
She can be unpredictable if she is nervous or feeling uneasy. She does not like being picked up, but if she is comfortable with you and her surrounding she does like to sit on your lap. Apple hates other cats but quite happy with the company of a cat friendly dog. Apple would love a quiet home without children.

Apple is a conditional adoption, as she is on a prescription diet. The staff will be happy to explain all the details if you are interested in giving this beautiful senior a home.

  • Adults 1-6yo a FREE Scratching Post valued $33.00

Notification of 2018 AGM


Cinta didn’t get the human interaction and handling that she needed at a young age to make her comfortable with people, but she just loves other animals and would be a great companion for your cat. Being fostered for a while showed us that once settled Cinta becomes relaxed enough to be around you and may even be up for the occasional pat. Just don’t expect her to become an affectionate pet as that is very unlikely.

Cinta deserves a chance the same as every other feline and we desperately wish for her to have a home of her own. If you think you could provide her with a home where she can be comfortable just being herself, or preferably having a feline companion who can help teach her humans can be a good thing in her life then please come into CPS and meet her.

Cinta is 1yo and would not be suitable to a home with children.



Pippa needs a permanent foster home

Pippa is a beautiful 14yo who is looking for a permanent foster home to spend her retirement in. Pippa suffers from occasional loose stools, but is very good at making sure she uses her litter tray. She has been seen by three vets and had every test to try to determine what is causing the issue, unfortunately no causes have been found. On the upside she is otherwise healthy for her age and is a smoochy lady. She has lived with a small dog with no problem.

We want her to spend the rest of her life in a home so the decision has been made to find a permanent foster home for her.
If you think you can provide this beautiful lady a warm couch and lap please come and meet her at the shelter or email to apply and for more information. We will supply her veterinary care and food (she is on a prescription diet). You will need to supply love, cuddles and security.

Ideally we would want her to be living near Greensborough and her carer having own transport, for her veterinary care and food supply.



Zoe is a quiet achiever, she will not meow out for you to come to her, she is a lady who just goes with the flow. Unless of course you forget to feed her! As you can see Zoe loves her food, what this voluptuous lady does not love is other felines or children. Zoe would suit a nice quite home where she can chill out with you but it will be on her terms. She may take a bit to settle but once she is comfortable she will be happy to watch the world go by on your lap. Due to Zoe’s pink nose and ears she must be indoors only.



Are you looking for a mate to chill with you whilst watching the footy or a good movie? One that doesn’t want to cuddly all the time, one that just wants to hang with you, a blokes mate! Yes?  Then come and meet Harold this weekend.

Harold came to us as a stray, he is a friendly boy but will not put up with being pushed around. Show him space and patience and he will show you how to chill and not worry about the small stuff. Harold is 2yo and would suit best to being your only feline and not living with young children.

Whilst your meeting Harold please also take the time to meet Nerone, another of our boys. Nerone is living the life in his own office so just ask our staff to introduce you.

Darebin Community Festival and Pet Expo

CPS will be at the Darebin Community Festival & Pet Expo this coming Sunday 25th March 11am – 4pm at Edwards Lake, Reservoir.

We will have our CPS Merchandise, cat toys, guess how many Easter Eggs in the jar competition and a raffle. If your in the area come and meet some of the CPS team.



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 come and meet him in his little kingdom where he can wander and rub all over you. You will fall in love immediately.



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 this misunderstood puss a home?
