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.
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 frown 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 with older children will work.
(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 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. 3 years old)
This sweet and chunky girl is on the look for a wonderful and loving home.
Baby is so sweet with a nice big round belly and short little legs
She has the most beautiful sweet nature but she is hesitant around new people, she takes a little moment to trust new people and that’s ok because us humans are like this too!! Why should we expect a cat to love us straight away when they have been betrayed in the past.
Baby will be such a loving and loyal girl if someone wonderful can give her the chance
She is great around other cats and our shelter dog. She is best suited to a nice calm inside only home or with a safe outside enclosure. She is not suited to young children.
(Male, 2 to 4 years old)
A beautiful and sweet boy ready for a loving home.
Reggie loves pats and is a very friendly and affectionate boy. He can get a little startled easily at times but he has so much love to give a special family.
He is great around other cats and gets along well with our shelter dog.
Reggie would be better suited to a home with older children.
(Female, approx. 5 years old)
After a tricky start to life and much weariness, I have learnt how to be a pet cat in my foster home – I’m not even fearful of a vacuum any more. I love being near my main human and I am specifically fond of women. I don’t like to be picked up but I do enjoy a sleepy cuddle. I have learnt to tolerate dogs although am more a fan of the relaxed and lazy canine. Despite having had over 15 teeth removed, I love dry food and crunchy treats. My favourite things to do include following the sun for naps, clawing my scratching poles, eating dry food and singing meowing melodies. I am up for a conversation any time of the day – if you give me a meow, I’ll give you a meow in return. I even come running from the other side of the house if you give a big high pitched meow! I’m looking for my long term humans, preferably female, who have a nice quiet home and enjoy a quiet conversation and cuddle on the couch.
Katnis has been around other cats and before her foster home and always got along well with them, she is not suitable for a home with children. It took Katnis quite some months to feel safe in her foster home so she really needs someone with a lot of patience and understanding of her background. If you give her the time she needs to gain her trust and show her love and patients she will be such a loyal and loving companion.
ABOUT SAMPSON, ROGAN & KEKE
Sampson & Rogan – Male, 3 years old
Keke – Female, 2 years old
We are looking for the most wonderful home for 3 cats together! Yep you read that correctly, 3 gorgeous kitty’s who have a very strong bond we would be so upset to break. They are three parts to one tight little unit. They are each other’s strength and comfort. Once dumped young street cats these three are slowly learning that humans can be ok. They have been loving life for the past 5 months in a wonderful foster home, learning what its really like to have love, warmth and care given to them every day by humans. Sampson, when he trusts you, loves pats and scratches and head rubs. Little KeKe is just starting to come around she is the shyer of the three. Rogan is getting there slowly but surely. They prefer to be able to go outside, it’s what they are used to but are learning inside is much better than being out in the cold (we absolutely love homes with a safe outside enclosure).
They will always be present for breakfast and dinner and will wait patiently for you to serve them. They are fully self-contained and are respectful of other cats. Brilliant at catching unwanted rodents! We would love to find these 3 a home as wonderful as their foster home.
With time, love and patients these 3 will blossom so much more if given the chance.
They need a very patient and understanding home. Preferably a home without young children and one that is calm and doesn’t expect too much of them initially.
(Male, approx. 18 months old)
This is what his wonderful foster mum Lynette has to say about Sapphire: He is a very handsome cat with his ginger and snowy white fur. While in foster care has worked hard to overcome his shyness. He is quite relaxed now and enjoys playing with toys and his good friend Poppy. Sapphire has a sweet natured temperament being calm, gentle and quiet. He enjoys being stroked and tolerates being picked up. He purrs a lot and is also quite vocal and meows readily which makes it easier to know what he wants. As Sapphire lives indoors he is used to household noises such as T.V., the washing machine and people going about their usual routine. He is well behaved and always uses his litter tray.
With quiet encouragement in a caring home, preferably with older children and adults, Sapphire will quickly settle and blossom into the quiet, sweet natured cat he is. He is used to a small dog.
(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.
Celeine would best suit a home without young children and inside only.
She gets on well with other cats but she is the boss lady to them all.
She gets on well with our little shelter dog also.
(Female, approx. 3 years old)
Demy is a gorgeous 3 year old girl needing a loving forever home. She is such a sweet girl and so loving if given the chance.
Initially, Demy is quite shy and timid but thats not really her true personality. The more she knows you, the more she loves you!
Demy needs a nice calm inside only home without young children. She gets along really well with other cats and isn’t bothered by our shelter dog.
(Male, approx. 10 years old)
Sweet old Gizmo is here with us to find his forever family.
Gizmo is so beautiful, biggest purrs, such smooching!! However he is a shy boy, he would love a wonderful retiring home where he can laze around all day in his favourite spots. He is so loving but very happy to be left alone and is not a needy cat for attention and affection.
A quiet home where he can laze around.
(Female, approx. 2 years old)
Poppy has such a lovely, pretty face. She is approximately 2 years old and is a ginger female, which is quite unusual. Poppy is relaxed and enjoys playing with toys and her good friend Sapphire. Poppy has a sweet natured temperament being calm, gentle and quiet. She loves to be picked up where she snuggles into your shoulder and purrs. She enjoys cuddles and would love to settle on your lap or on a mat by the heater. As Poppy lives indoors she is used to household noises such as T.V., the washing machine and people going about their usual routine. She is well behaved and always uses her litter tray.
With quiet encouragement in a caring home, preferably with older children and adults, Poppy will quickly settle and her quiet, sweet nature will shine. She is used to a small dog.
