Sanctuary Cats & Adoptions


 

HOW ADOPTIONS WORK

All of our cats are:

  • desexed
  • microchipped
  • had their initial vaccination
  • wormed and flea treated.

We do a two week trial with every adoption, so if it does not work out we will require that the cat is returned to us and you will receive a full refund.

You can check our cats for adoption below and on our Facebook Page. There are delays with uploading our cats – this means cats shown here might already be adopted or cats that have become available are not shown here.

Once you’ve spotted your potential fur-ever friend, send us a Facebook message.

We will get back to you (usually within one or two days) and discuss next steps.


FELINES LOOKING FOR A LOVING HOME


MOLLY aka BBQ BETTY

About Molly aka BBQ Betty

Molly is ready to find her forever home , this is what her wonderful foster mum has to say about her ⬇️⬇️
“As foster carers we’re not supposed to have favourites. Sometimes it’s their cute little face, sometimes it’s their quirky personality and sometimes it can be their sad story. Molly is all 3. When Molly was found in a BBQ injured we all thought that a bird must have got her and she was lucky to survive. When Molly was desexed, sadly the vet discovered a pellet from a rifle under her skin.
She’s amazing, and sweet and purrs constantly. Molly does startle easily but prefers to have company so pops out of her hiding place very quickly. She loves a lap to sit on, play on, roll around on and fall asleep on. She does like to be where I am so would suit someone who’s home a lot. Also, Molly loves her food.”

Suitable for

She loves a gentle play with bigger cats and is tolerant of our slow going dog. Molly is also great at entertaining herself and would thrive as a single kitty in the house as long as she has many laps to choose from.

Molly is in foster care in Hobart. Please contact us now if you would like to meet Molly.

BOBBY

About Bobby

Meet Bobby 🤩 Bobby has been so lucky to have the most wonderful foster home this past year who have helped him blossom from a hissy bum to such a gorgeous boy, but now it is time for Bobby to find his forever home and family.

This is what his Foster Family have to say about him: Bobby is Mr Purrsonality Plus. With a predictable environment he is a super low maintenance cat who loves food and affection. He loves checking out what his hoomins are up to outdoors (enclosed) as much as lounging on the couch on a warm rug. He has had access to the outdoors and would go a little stir crazy without some fresh air so an outside enclosure would be amazing for Bobby. Truly the lowest maintenance cat ever, just like an average house plant! Sun, food and water only required. Bobby is 2 years old (June 2022.)

Suitable for

He can tolerate some other cats and has lived with them…. but of course he’s going to consider himself superior. He prefers to be the man of the house and is an absolute joy to hang out with. Small hoomins would likely be too unpredictable and scary for Bobby.

Adoption Details

Bobby is currently located in care in Hobart. Please contact us now if you would like to meet Bobby.

Suitable for

Bedford would prefer a quiet home with no children.

He would like a cat friend or two that he could spend some time with.

About Albie

“Albie is 5 months old and is now a complete sooky, chatty, smoocher with his foster carers. He follows his carers around like a puppy, sits on their feet every chance he gets, seeks out company and cuddles – and gives great ginger hugs!! Albie will likely be a little shy at first meeting but will quickly relax and blossom to show you his goofy, affectionate, lovable self. The way to this little dude’s heart is food treats (tuna and bbq chook are his faves!) and madly chasing down pingpong balls for a fun game of soccer. Come along and meet Albie in his foster home where he’s grown to be so confident and playful with his carers, kids and other friendly cats and kittens.”

As soon as she gets a bottom rub especially she flops and asks for more. Although loves nothing more than a play and dinner or brekky time!

Silvester is a comedian when hes not entertaining you he will be snuggled up on your lap. He will even ask to be picked up and cuddled. Stallone is a little more reserved but still loves a good cuddle and enjoys having his long glossy coat brushed to keep it in top condition. Given a little time these boys will be the most loving family members. And the real bonus is you will never have to go to the bathroom on your own again!!”

If given the time to settle in and gain trust these boys will be the most loving and loyal companions.

Children – They require a home without young children.

Inside only – They require an inside only home.

Other cats – They have been great around other cats but will need to make sure they can not access the wrong foods if another household cat is on a different diet.

Not ready to adopt?

SPONSOR OUR SANCTUARY CATS

Why we need your help

Sanctuary cats are rescues that are often abandoned or have been born in an environment without human contact, they are very timid and some are very afraid of people. Some will eventually trust enough to accept pats from people they know, but generally these cats will not be adoptable due to their extreme shyness. We need your help to continue provide regular veterinary health checks/vaccinations, food, litter other supplies as we don’t receive any funding and rely solely on donations.

What can you do to help?

From just $20 a month, you can sponsor one of our beautiful Sanctuary Cats!

You will receive an email every three months with an update on your cat and some lovely new photos.
