Owner finds cat while browsing Melbourne rescue centre after five years apart



A MAN has met his pet cat for the first time in five years after spotting the Balinese feline while browsing a Melbourne rescue centre’s website. Mitcham’s Michael Close left cat Chopper with his mother before moving to Kuala Lumpur to be closer to his wife’s family while expecting their first child. However, Chopper — named after Mark ‘Chopper’ Read because he is missing part of an ear — was adopted by another woman after not getting along with his mother’s cat. Chopper wound up at Greensborough’s Cat Protection Society of Victoria after the woman died about three months ago.

Welcome to Our New Website

After some recent changes to our offices at the Cat Protection Society of Victoria, we decided that we’d invest in a new website. Our previous website was great however we needed something that would meet the ever increasing needs of our mobile cat lovers. Our new website works just great on mobile phones, tablets and of course, your desktop PC.

We believe that it strikes the right balance in terms of aesthetics whilst providing you with the right information. It will take a little while to build our content up, but rest assured the site will increase in content rapidly.

The life and soul of our organisation are our cats who are desperately searching for a loving family. Please take the time to browse our fantastic felines and give one a home!
