Two Cats are Better than One

At The Cat Protection Society, we believe that having two cats provides huge benefits in terms of socialisation, enrichment and companionship plus you also get twice the love. And now, when you adopt 2 cats or kittens from our Society, we will take 50% off the Adoption Fee of your second cat or kitten.

CAT OF THE WEEK – Scout

Scout came to us as a scared, stray Mummy Cat who had sadly been separated from her babies (her babies had been caught but Scout was a little too smart for the trap). After a few days, Scout was caught and was able to be reunited with her babies. Even in the stressful environment of our Shelter, Scout embraced her babies like they had never been apart; she was the perfect Mum. However, Scout struggled in the Shelter and would only let our Shelter staff touch and play with her kittens while she watched on cautiously; Scout then went into Foster Care.

In Foster Scout was most comfortable in her open crate whilst her babies played outside of it with the Foster Carers. It took her a good 3 days to come out of her safe place with the enticement of chicken (this is her weakness), Scout would sit outside the crate and watch her kittens play with the humans but wouldn’t approach her Carers for pats for over a week.

Once Scout became a little bit comfortable out of her safe place she started to flourish. Scout started building up trust with her humans and hasn’t looked back. Each and every day her Foster Carers are amazed at her progress! She has become smoochy to pats (not a lap cat at this stage) but LOVES her chin & cheek rubs, this NEEDS to be done at Scouts approval/pace. Once comfortable she has become very kitten like in the fact that she will play with anything to keep herself amused, her favourite toys are feathers on wands/sticks and the laser pointer and she enjoys doing zoomies around the room. She loves to look out the window like a meerkat, up on her hind legs to see what’s going on in the outside world but seems quite happy/almost thankful that she’s in the safe place of her home, rather than out on the streets.

Scout can be very shy with new people, she seems to prefer females over males and takes a little while to build up her trust, especially with the males. For this reason, we are looking for an experienced cat owner/family that is willing to let Scout take things at her own pace, this means that you need to let Scout come to you and guide where she, herself is happy to patted etc. We promise you that if given the time to come around to you, Scout will repay you tenfold in love, accomplishment & entertainment with her cheeky kitty antics.

Scout LOVES other cats but is not a fan of dogs, so a home with no dogs is a must. She would also suit a home with older children that understand Scout needs to be the one to make the moves with them and not be forced into anything she doesn’t want to do, to be comfortable in her new home.

If you put the work into this beautiful girl, you won’t be disappointed. If you think you could provide Scout with her happy ending and forever home, contact our Shelter on 8457.6500

CAT OF THE WEEK – Che Che

Che Che is a quiet 8yo lady who would also like a quiet home where she can sit and watch you work or simply keep you company. We would love her to find a home that knows and understands the needs and traits of the Persian breed. Che Che is currently in Foster Care to give her a break from the shelter and she is thriving! If you would like to meet Che Che please give us a call on 8457 6500 to arrange a meet and greet, you wont be disappointed!

An update from her Foster Carer –
Che Che has been in foster care for 2 weeks now, and she is loving it!!!
We have found that she is not too fond of other cats, dogs and young children and is a bit set in her ways. But she absolutely loves to sleep on your bed! She is quite happy to just laze her days away in the sun on your bed, couch or window sill, and watch the world go by. When you go to sleep, she will be by your side, or on your chest, sometimes your head gets the tail end! She loves a scratch behind the ears, and under the chin, and will head butt you till she has had enough. She is very clean, and her fur is starting to grow back nice and thick.

Being part Persian, she does have the grumpy face and the cattitude to go with it. And she will let you know when she has had enough with a smack (no claws out) and maybe a leave me a alone hiss. If you are after a independent self sufficient cat, who would love you around to be her slave, and feed her (especially cooked chicken!!) then Che Che is your girl.
