FIND YOUR PURRFECT MATCH
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.
We rely solely on our adoption fees and the generous support of the community to continue our rescue work. Many times, we are faced with large veterinary bills due to the illness and injury that comes along with looking after rescues. If you would like to sponsor an animal or to donate to RCSH to help us assist more animals in need, then please view our donation info.
(Female, 1.5 years)
A beautiful black panther girl who has so much love to give a special someone. Minnie is so sweet and loving, she waits patiently at her cage door everyday for her turn of snuggles but she would love her own home.
At times she can be a little timid initially until she gets to know you but that is so normal for these cats.
She is great around other cats and doesn’t seem bothered by our shelter dog.
ABOUT MAYA & BELLA
(Females, 9 & 12 months old)
Bella: tabby & white, 9 months old, always looks like she’s smiling
Maya: tabby, 12 months old, has constant resting bitch face (we all know someone that has that)
These girls a quite shy initially, they need a very patient and loving home who can understand them needing to trust before they give out their endless love. They have both been with us at the Penna Shelter for over 5 months because their perfect home just hasn’t come by as yet.
They love other cats and are fine around calm dogs. They do need an inside only home and a home withour children.
(Female, 5 years old)
Tabitha is a beautiful and big tabby girl. She has the most stunning markings!
Tabitha is a very sweet and loving girl , she loves your company and will roll over for belly rubs. She does take a few moments to feel safe and comfortable with new people, she has been with us some months now so seeing new people constantly gets a bit overwhelming for her and she mainly stays in her bed. However, if you spend some time with her she soon warms up and then won’t leave you alone. Sometimes she says hello with a hiss but its nothing nasty just a bit of nerves.
She is such a loving girl she deserves a beautiful home.
She does need to be the only cat, she would tolerate a nice and quiet dog but best not suited to young children.
(Female, 2 years old)
This beautiful young girl, approx 2 years old has been doing so well in her wonderful foster home. When she first arrived with us she was a very scared and unsocial girl, most likely dumped and had never known kindness and love. Now with Katie with lots of love and patients she has blossomed into such a beautiful girl.
This is what her foster parents say about her: “Amber is a quiet girl with a sweet personality. While initially very shy around new people or in new places, once comfortable Amber is very cuddly, playful, and affectionate. Amber likes sunbathing, rolling around in piles of blankets, scratches behind her ears, and playing hide-and-seek under the furniture. She dislikes being picked up, preferring to come to you, and is sometimes spooked by loud noises or sudden movements. Amber is polite to other cats, but also happy being on her own, and would be fine as an indoor-only cat. She is very food-motivated, non-aggressive, and overall a very lovely girl who is excited to find her forever home.”
Amber would be suitable as an indoor cat and a quiet home.
(Male, 12 years old)
Bruce Almightly is looking for a wonderful home!
He is a gorgeous big black panther who looks a little rugged around the edges. Bruce is used to a big farm life – his previous home was a barn he shared with his buddy Pud.
He is a pretty chilled out boy, but he loves attention on his terms. He’s very friendly but he likes to be left alone most of the time. He’s so independent!!
We would ideally like to find him a nice quiet home similar to what he has been used to all these years. We love and promote inside only homes but as Bruce has always been an outside cat we think he would struggle with an inside only home. A big outside enclosure would be perfect also.
Bruce isn’t very fond of other cats, so home as a single cat would suit him well.
(Male, 8 years old)
Pud came to us from the same home as Bruce. So he has been a barn cat for quite some years. He’s such a friendly boy, he’s not quite as grumpy and independent as Bruce but he’s still pretty happy doing his own thing.
He really is a gorgeous boy who needs some love and a wonderful family to spoil him.
We would love to find a nice relaxing country home for Pud or a home with an outside enclosure. The boys don’t need to be adopted together as their not bonded and just tolerate each other but if your looking for a pair they do get on well, if given enough space from each other.
(Female, 5 years old)
Sweet Dutchess is not very happy to be back at the cattery after 3 months in a wonderful foster home, but her foster family can not keep her so we need her back with us to find a wonderful forever home.
She is a beautiful girl who has come so far since arriving with us 7 months ago.
Suitable forShe will make the best companion for a quiet home with someone who has patience and can give her time to settle in.
She loves other cats but is best suited to a home without young children.
(Female, approx. 2 years old)
This gorgeous girl is in foster care in Launceston. She is a little girl of 18 months to two years of age and very very pretty.
Her foster carer loves her and so do her foster cat brothers. She is a little bit shy, however this is what her carer commented about her: “She is still a bit frightened with loud noises and not entirely happy about being picked up but she sleeps with me and on her terms cuddles with me when on couch”.
Charlie is an indoor cat that would be well suited to a calm home with children over 5 years of age. She likes other cats.
ABOUT HANDSOME & BUDDY
(Males, both approx. 12 months old)
Handsome: black, Buddy: black & white
These two brothers are the cutest guys!! They are super playful, especially Handsome (black).

They are best suited to a calm home preferably with older children or no children. They adore other cats and love our little shelter dog.
