Teenie weenie little lady has found her new family!
Gorgeous big smoocher boy is now ready for a new home. :)
Now that all the previous guys are adopted it was time to take a new bunch of needy kitties. So we chose the overcrowded Blacktown Pound, and chose their most needy. The ones that rescue is all about.
3132 --- "female silver ginger tabby"
3168 ---"Pearl, silver tabby DSH" Senior Pearl has 3 legs :)
3143 ---"female tabby DSH"
3088 --- "male ginger and white DSH"
3087 --- "male black and white" brother to 3088
3080 --- "female blue and white" our youngest at 12 weeks
3098 --- "tortie female" 10 years young and toothless, she's divine
2670 --- "black male from sick bay = Bad Eye"
And one more awaiting collection. A ten yr old lady who may be adopted before we collect her which in the grand scheme of things, is exactly the kind of cat who should be going straight to a home if she is fortunate enough to be chosen.
And that's all for now! We'll need your help. Once they have pretty photos, and definite names (OMG it's hard to choose!) we'll need you to tell everyone, share piccies, check our instagram, fabebook and newsletters. Adult cats will be the hardest to find homes for now that the dreaded 'kitten season' is looming.
Her new name is Dorothy.
And well ..... we couldn't have found her a better place to move in forever.
If you're an Insta user, please watch her adventures and give her lots of likes. She's absolutely adorable and has grown into a such a sweetheart.
Check her out. Click on the image and it will enlarge.
We finally made it through. Photos sessions, applications, meet & greets, driving from one end of Sydney to the other, vet trips, one perished car and a group of happy adopters. All the babies were in lovely new trial homes and We let out a big sigh of relief. Big sigh of relief.
Seemingly, what we'd done with lower fees had opened up opportunities and gotten our babies much needed attention in a sea of homeless kittens. Not sure if we can afford to do that again but it was worth it.
Diamond and her babies were rescued from Campbelltown on Christmas eve 2015. They were all desperate for cuddles and stretched their little arms through the wire to stop busy pound staff in their tracks for a bit of a smooch. They'd all inherited their Mum's sweet nature and at just 5 weeks old, we knew they would only get friendlier and more adorable as they became more independent.
Adoption fees were a puzzler. Do we try to recoup vet fees or do we attempt to subsidise?
Well, jury decision was subsidise. We may not be able to do it with every single litter but why not try.
Would lower fees look like we're shoving them out the door to anyone?
OK well if you know us ... no. Due process has to be followed. Applications, home visits, 2 week trial and lifetime support as well as lifetime return policy.
How do we avoid 're-sellers'?
Yes it's a problem with cheaper adoption fees. The name 're-sellers' should tell you all you need to know. But we feel our uncompromising rehoming methods provide that extra bit of insurance.
Anyway, we made our plans and once the littles were old enough they had their vetwork and were placed up for adoption. Inquiries flooded in and as of today, applications have been closed because there's sooo many good ones and we only have 5 babies! So for our adoptive families and all the kitten lovers out there, here's piccies we didn't put on the Pets For Adoption page. :)
