KITTENS, KITTENS, KITTENS!
Our partnership with Petbarn Rosny
We currently have some gorgeous cats and kittens available for adoption in Petbarn Rosny (25 Bligh St, Rosny Park TAS 7018).
You can meet them anytime during their opening hours Monday to Saturday 8.30am to 6pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm. If you have previously spotted a kitten you love, call the team at Petbarn to see if it is still available to avoid disappointment.
HOW ADOPTIONS WORK
All of our cats are:
- 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.
ABOUT SILVESTER & STALLONE
(Males, both approx. 3 years old)
These boys have spent the past 6 months in with their wonderful foster mum and this is what she has to say about them.
“Silvester and Stallone are the most gorgeous sweetest boys, 3 years young. They may be very shy to begin with, but once they trust you they have so much love to give. 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!!”
Silvester & Stallone are very bonded brothers and will need a home together.
These boys require a very special home. They need a home that can commit to their special dietary needs (they have allergies to certain cat foods and are on a specific diet).
Stress-free home – They need a very calm and patient home, we can not stress this enough!! They have not had the easiest life until coming into care with their current foster mum and we really need to make sure we find the right home for these boys. 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.
(Female, approx. 4 years old)
Celeine is a sweet girl who loves pats but does not like to be picked up, well not initially anyway!
She gets more confident the more time you spend with her but can be a little timid at first.
She gets on well with the other cats but she is the boss lady to them all. She gets on well with our little shelter dog also. Celeine would best suit a home without young children and inside only.
(Male, approx. 6 months old)
This is what his wonderful foster mum has to say about him: Beautiful Murry is just hanging around wondering why he isn’t good enough for someone to take him home. Murray is shy but a very snuggly lap cat with a very loud infectious purr. He has some unusual tendencies also, he can pick up metal objects in his mouth and relocate them. He can also remove larger objects like shoes and TV remote controls, he can be seen dragging things to and from room to room. He is definitely not fussy with food and is learning how to walk on a harness.
Murray is Dog friendly and loves the company of other cats.
ABOUT BANJO & BUFFY
(Male and Female – Brother and sister, Banjo and Buffy)
We are ready for adoption TOGETHER!
These two beautiful babies were rescued by their wonderful foster family, this is what they have to say about Banjo & Buffy: Found alone, scared, cold and very hungry, these bonded siblings have blossomed so much together in foster care. Banjo (gorgeous chonky grey and white boy) loves his food and snuggles and is the more confident leader in their playtime adventures. Buffy (sweet petite tabby girl) is a gentle little soul who’s decided that pats from familiar people are really lovely. When it comes to kitten nap time though you’ll always find these two babies snuggled up cosily together.
Banjo and Buffy have been raised in a busy family home with cats, kids and dogs. Although they may feel a little shy at first (understandably) they’ll quickly settle in and bond to their forever family with a little extra time and understanding. These sibs are around 5 months old now and perfectly ready to meet their forever family. How wonderful would it be for them if they were adopted together!
This is what his amazing foster mummy has to say about him: “Joe Exotic Are you wanting to adopt a cat that’s a loving snuggle bug? This spicy kitten came into foster care very scared and not sure of the world. He has completely blossomed in his foster home. He is very polite and he has no problem making friends with any cat. You will always find him curled up with his friends or sitting on your lap. He likes male and female kitty companions! He loves being petted and will give you head bops!”
Joe is a bit shy in new situations, just give him time to get to know you. He will make someone very happy and he is definitely a lap cat. Joe hasn’t been exposed to young children.
Polly didn’t have the best start to life and was lucky enough to go into foster care. This is what her wonderful foster mum has to say about her: I have really enjoyed having Polly live with me for the last four months. She had never been in a house before, I did wonder if she would ever come out of her shell. I gather she was a stray prior to staying in the Launceston Shelter with Lesley and then spending some months with the team at Penna. She is a quiet soul with a gentle meow and often ‘whispers’ which is very endearing. On the flip side she can also give you a ‘tap’ when she thinks it is time for (more) food! She has a good appetite and never says no to a snack or a meal. More recently she has gained the confidence to have a snuggle on my bed while I’m reading and will hang out on the couch or with me in front of the heater.
This is what her foster mum says: She is probably best suited to a quieter house with one or two adults. She is still a bit uncertain and cautious if there are new people or I move about quickly. She really doesn’t like the vacuum cleaner (so it’s a great excuse not to turn one on very much). With some coaching, I think she may make one of the local football teams. She is developing great ball skills and runs rings around me in the morning, while I am making breakfast, with a scrunched bit of paper or foil. Another current favourite is ‘bite the toe through the doona and pounce on moving feet’. She has been a polite house guest using the litter tray and sleeping in the beds provided for her. She may even have started to enjoy my company and gives me unimpressed looks when I get ready to leave for work. I think she will continue to gain confidence and blossom in a furever home now she knows more about daily routines and what her humans get up to. It is often said about shy people we are rewarded if we take the time to get to know them. I think the same can be said for Polly.
ABOUT IRONSIDE & FURGALAND
(Females, 3 & 6 years old)
These two stunning girls were surrendered to us last week. They have been health checked, are desexed, microchipped and vaccinated and now looking for their forever home together. Ironside (shorthair tabby), is approximately 3 years old Furgaland is approximately 6 years old. They are both friendly, but a little out of sorts here at the shelter so we are hoping to find them a wonderful home as soon as possible.
We are looking for a home without other cats or dogs and older children (10+).
She is Tilly’s sister and such a talker. She has a lot to say and will have a full on conversation with you. She loves pats on the head and on the back. Her favourite toy is a little mouse and she will run around with it for ages! She doesn’t really like to be picked up but will tolerate it. She loves being around you and never gets sick of attention.
Coming from a home with other cats, so she’s very well socialised.
(Male, 12 months old)
Murphy is a beautiful little black panther who has been with us for over 6 months now. Sadly black cats are the least likely to be adopted. We can never really understand why but its the truth.
He is a very happy and playful boy, loves the company of other cats but can take a little time to warm up to strangers, which is so understandable as he sees so many strangers every day here in the cattery.
He would absolutely blossom in a patient home with his own people and he would best suit a home with another friendly kitty. He gets along great with our shelter dog, but is a bit worried around small children.
(Male, months old)
This is what his amazing foster mum has to say about him: “Little Bruce came to me very scared of everything and anything except his brother. Foster care has taught him to be so brave around humans and in a home environment. Once his brother (who was extremely extroverted, demanding most of the attention) left for his forever home, Bruce truly started to blossom into a snuggle bum. Bruce is still easily startled by loud noises therefore needs a patient, quiet home to reassure him he is safe. Once confident around you he will truly show you just how much love he has to give.”
Bruce is best suited to a home without young children.
