Inkie has settled in very well. From very shy beginnings of hiding under the couch and not coming out for hours to now roaming the house with such confidence, it is lovely to see this beautiful girl blossom into a relaxed and happy kittie. She enjoys lazing up high in her closet all day and then turns on her wild side at dusk by prancing around the house, getting into everything and being an absolute sticky nose wanting to know everything that I am doing. Inkie loves her toy mouse that has a hint of catnip inside and you can often hear her throwing it around in the middle of night. She also loves to jump on my bed at goodness knows what time of the night and tenderly ‘kisses’ and sniffs my eyelids for some reason, it’s really quite cute. Inkie now rolls on her back and loves a tummy rub and kisses on her forehead. This kittie is simply beautiful in every way and I’m so happy she has found her forever and ever home.
Marshmallow (formerly Arial) is about a year old now. Not super cuddly, she is an independent lass who will play fetch with Mum (so long as she has a Lindt ball wrapper – no substitutes) and has laid claim to some of Mum’s yarn collection. She loves looking out the windows, watching the occasional car and all of our native birds, and the family’s 2 budgerigars.
Our young asthmatic and cat lover was mildly allergic (we had no idea) with Marshmallow, but over the year Marshmallow has been tolerating a weekly bath well (to reduce dander) and a few months ago we stretched out the time between baths and it’s now been 2 months and no wheezing (hooray). Mum’s happy to not be having her demise plotted constantly and Marshmallow is happy she doesn’t have to go to the spa anymore though the photos are hilarious.
Firstly, I want to again pass on my gratitude to you all for the fantastic work you do. It is clear that you take the time to get to know and understand the personalities of each of your cats, then ensure you take an active interest in knowing those who come in as potential parents to these guys.
In early March I came in to have a look around and very soon was chosen by ‘Tommy’ who smothered me with smooches and purred like an engine. I didn’t want to make an impulse decision so was there for quite a while, even then returning the next day before adopting him. Staff were incredibly patient and informative, helping me to talk it through. One lady in particular was very gracious and generous with her time, but I cannot recall her name. She has light brown hair up in a ponytail and has been at reception when I’ve been in.
I brought in a few little donations for the kitties as a thank you and will continue to bring more.
I changed Tommy’s name but thought you might like to see how he’s going…Here are some pics of Figaro (Fig for short) named after the black and white cat from Pinocchio…
Back in February 2017, I adopted a cat called Vamp, took her home and promptly renamed her Suki!
Suki-boo is the light of my life, full of personality and a very interactive cat. She likes to be wherever I am, sitting on the kitchen bench while I do dishes or sitting on the side of the washing machine watching it fill up. I love her with all my heart, even when she’s being very naughty.
I still can’t believe that Suki was at CPS for 3 weeks before I found her – how people walked past such a beautiful cat is beyond me. As soon as I saw her I knew she was the one. She was obviously waiting for me to be her forever Mum.
I donated today so that other people can share the joy of having a special cat in their lives. Thank you to you all for your special care for all the felines who need a new forever home. You do a wonderful job with minimal support. I know my donation will go to a very good cause.
Dear Joanna, Jackie and CPS Staff
A couple of weeks ago my son and I adopted ‘Archie’, a ten month old black kitten.
It is fair to say that he has settled well, as can be seen by the attached photos!
He has brought so much joy to our home and we are very grateful to all the staff at CPS, especially Jackie who went above and beyond in helping to make this adoption a very easy and comforting experience.
Archie is now ‘Alfie’, or sometimes ‘Alfalfa Sprout’, or ‘Sprout’ (depending on what he has been up to!!). Alfie loves to head butt the boys to wake them of a morning, he loves to help Ian in the study when he’s working (or should I say lick his hands when he tries to type on the keyboard). He particularly loves to help in the kitchen when food is being prepared by consistently jumping on the bench top (lets say ‘no’ is a word he is most familiar with!). Alfie also likes to chat, especially around dinner time when he feels that the amount of food being offered isn’t consistent with his hunger!!
At a time when we were still mourning the loss of ‘Spinach’, our beloved tortoise shell cat, Alfie has been a godsend and is a much loved new addition to our family. He has enormous spunk, is mischievous, energetic, and loves a cuddle. We couldn’t ask for more in a pet!
We are so grateful, thankyou.

4yo Jackson’s previous owner passed away and Jackson had no idea why he was in a shelter and not at home anymore. Jackson waited 88 days for his perfect human and he could not have found a better home.
Hi Jacky and team,
You’ll be pleased to know that Jackson is settling in just fine here he is on our bed with my partner James, his new Daddy – really coming out of his shell now. He really has no anxiety now and is very happy. I feel we have really scored – it’s a genuine win win!
Chi Chi in her 2nd anniversary of adoption. Happy, healthy and a much loved part of the house – despite her propensity for wanting to wake you at 5am with licks and paws to the face!
Miss Mona was adopted from CPS and is now the resident feline at Karana Baptcare in Kew.
Miss Mona sits on the heaters in Winter!
She’s not silly!!!
My partner and I adopted Iris in February this year. She took a little time to settle in, but she has definitely proved that she ain’t chicken with her new family! I thought you would like an update on how she’s going.
Thanks so much for bringing such a happy little cat into our lives. Even though she’s 10, she definitely acts like a spritely young lady!

I adopted Brandy and Plum at the start of the year and just wanted to give an update that they’re doing well and are very loved. They still get along well together.
15 months later Lily & Ginny (Nova & Fantapants) Ginny likes to be brushed and patted occasionally but Lily is still very timid and won’t be petted but will take snacks from my hand. They are both very much loved.
ChocTop” (formerly known as “Judith”) is settling in purrrrrfectly. Her favourite spot is on my laptop when I’m working or any lap offering a pat and cuddle.
This is Puddee. I adopted him a year ago. He was formally known as Fancy Pants. My wife called him Puddee. He has been a character and makes us laugh. We now can’t imagine a life without him. He is always there for us and knows when to comfort us when we are sad. He is a talker and playful. He gets spoilt by my wife with toys. He is part of our family. He is our fur baby. Thank you to the Cat Protection Society and to their lovely staff for helping us choose Puddee a year ago.
Thought I’d share some photos of Sage formally Tizzy, she’s is the most cuddly cat ever and has even made friends with our Rabbit!
She’s the happiest most beautiful natured cat
