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?

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.


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!”



Blind Brian’s heartwarming Story


Cheer up Brian…

I think we all know who Blind Brian is by now; the old blind cat with barely any teeth who found himself with us one Friday afternoon, scared, confused and very lost.

Brian’s story is a heartwarming one.

Our ranger brought Brian to us after being found wandering the streets of Eltham. Seeing that he was blind and old, yet super friendly, we immediately put a call-out on our Facebook page in hopes of finding his owner. Even though the post was shared over 1000 times and liked by over 700 people, Brian’s owners never came forward, and we never found out his history.

Brian stayed with us during his pound time, and when it was time to assess his progress, we knew there was a new forever home just waiting for the little fella, somewhere, we just needed to find it.

But before we could, Brian needed a ‘makeover’. Our CPS vet microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, flea and worm treated Brian, and gave him some super TLC, which he lapped up. Brian couldn’t get enough of cuddles; he would hold you around your neck and not want to let go. The staff fell in love with him.

We then sent him to All Animal Eye Services, where Dr. Simon Hurn performed major eye surgery to save what little vision Brian had left. Dr. Hurn did an amazing job; he removed the problem eye and treated the remaining eye, which now has partial vision.

Brian even got a special write-up in the Herald Sun in hopes he’d find his forever home, which worked!

Grace saw the article and immediately came to meet Brian and instantly fell in love. We can tell the feeling was mutual, because Brian loved being in her arms, and didn’t want to let go.

So he didn’t. Grace adopted Brian when our vet gave the all-clear for him to go home. So Brian will never have to let go again.

While we’ll miss Brian, we’re all so happy he’s found his forever human and has the second chance at happiness that he so rightly deserves.

All the best Brian, and, as Monty Python says, “always look on the bright side of life”
