Foster Carers needed !

Do you know someone who would like some companionship and lives in a quiet household who could open their heart to a cat who just wants to be treated with a little kindness?

Do you have experience with timid cats and enjoy the rewarding experience which comes from fostering a rescue cat, giving them love and attention and seeing them come out of their shell and snuggle up with you for cuddles and pats?
We are urgently seeking new foster carers to join us, both short term and ongoing, for a number of gorgeous cats, some of whom are naturally outgoing and a few who are shy and just need a little extra kindness and patience.

If you would like to foster one of them, you can download our foster carer application form here -

23/3/13   Niki and Miki and their sisters Bonnie & Maddy were at the pound without their mum when we rescued them..

Niki and Miki are inseparable, loving sisters. Like Thelma and Louise, they are different, yet complement each other so well. We would love to see them adopted together as they adore and take good care of each other.

What do they have in common? Both are super affectionate, gentle cats. Both dislike being grabbed or lifted off the ground; they prefer to come to you and sit next to you and get lots of petting. Occasionally they will sit on your lap, which is a very special treat. They enjoy sleeping on the bed with foster mom - sometimes by her feet, or right next to her. They are very gentle and never scratch people, not even when jumping on their lap. Both are very clean, and use the litter box with perfection with no accidents..  . No loud meows; they make a cute trrr sound instead. When a new kitten was brought into the home, at first they hissed at him and kept their distance; but after 2 days they became "moms". They've come to adore him, and are always giving him baths and playing with him.

Niki (Nikita )orange tabby with white tummy, face and legs has a slimmer face and black "eyeliner" on her left eye with a black spot on her left nostril. She is the most extroverted of the two, being the first to have come out and explore her foster mom's house, and happily greeting the occasional visitor. When she wants something, she'll let you know. She has a funny way of staring right into your eyes, as if trying to tell you something. When she wants to be petted (which is very often!) she'll look all cute and rub against the computer screen or a wall corner, as a way of asking. She loooves eating, and is always last to leave the food bowl.

Miki (short for Mikaela) has a rounder, whiter face. She is the shy one of the duo, hid under the bed and cried for a day when first brought to her new foster mom's home. She likes having her own space; she loves climbing to the highest spot of the house (nowhere her sister dares to go!) and spending hours thinking about... whatever cats think about. She loves getting petted, and her favorite is a belly rub; she'll lie on her back and streeetch out, to let you know that she wants one of those. Other times, when she wants some affection, she doesn't come to you asking for it: she expects you to read her mind and go to her, when she'll go "trrrr" happily. She's the one who sleeps the closest to mom in bed, and the first to stick her little head at the front door's gap when mom is coming home at the end of the day.

They have both tested negative to FIV

An open letter to the future owner or foster carer of Niki and Miki

Somehow a three month foster stint of Niki and Miki turned into eight and it would be more if a new job had not meant I need to travel regularly and at short notice.

So it’s with great sadness that I have to say goodbye to Niki and Miki and I hope someone reading this is a position of offer them a home, if not forever then for a few months?

They are great cats, sisters and very close but with quite distinct personalities.  Niki loves food (both hers and Mikis if you let her) and hence is a bit larger.  But very affectionate, almost like a dog.  She is not keen on being picked up and held but loves being brushed.  Miki on the other hand is a lap cat, tolerates being picked up but not at all keen on the brush.

They both are well behaved, rarely meow and very good on the toilet front.  Importantly they let you sleep in in the morning (provided they had a supper the night before) and may even join you on the bed if that’s what you want.  They still enjoy playing, sleeping in shoe boxes (a tighter fit for Niki) and using the scratching post.  Miki is a bit more inquisitive and independent and loves looking over the balcony rail and surveying the neighbourhood.

There is more but why not find that out for yourself!  I am offering a well vetted carer who will be fostering for 6 months or longer,  or adopter, up to three $100 vouchers for cat stuff (one per month) on the sole provision that photos are somehow made available to me.  If I am ever in a position to do a short term caring stint while you are on holiday, I will certainly do so.

Thanks

Possum with her 'mouse'

Oct 2013: Possum is a lovely medium-haired black and white cat with a glossy coat and yellow-green eyes. She was rescued from the pound as a kitten. Possum is a timid cat initially and is looking for an experienced single person or couple who will give her time to build trust and confidence. She would benefit from a quiet environment without children or too many other animals. Once settled, she is clever, faithful and loving, lies upside down to have her chin stroked and adores being brushed all over. Possum is bright and likes to play games. She has a very dear personality with a happy purr. Possum has had access to an outdoor enclosure but indoor living would also suit her well and limited exposure to the sun will protect her pink nose from skin cancer. Possum has blossomed so much and is now looking for a gentle and loving home. Currently she has only a small area to herself but her top priority is to have the run of an entire house/apartment where she can share your life and learn to live as part of the family. 

Possum has tested negative for FIV

MELODY (f) special home or foster carer needed

 URGENT - experienced FOSTER CARER OR FOREVER HOME NEEDED

December 2016- Melody is being sponsored by Margaret Haywood @ $40 per mth. Purrs from Melody x x x
December 2016 - Melody is being sponsored by Jenny Grant @ $20 per mth. Purrs from Melody x x x

Dec 2014- Hello, my name's MELODY. I'm a special needs pussy cat, and I've been in long term emergency boarding for such a long time, patiently waiting for my turn to have a foster family, or forever home. I only have one wish for Christmas...someone to give me a chance to be their foster pet, even if only  for a while. I would love to be part of family, even if only for the Christmas holidays. My family, SPRA love me and they worry about me being in boarding so long.  Can you help me?  

December 2016, I am currently with a temporary foster carer, but still looking for a more long term special carer or forever home !

 This is my story....I'm a pretty blue and white girl born approx 2007. Sydney Pet Rescue and Adoption took me into foster care  when my family planned to take me to the pound, when they were moving to the US.
SPRA took me in because they knew that being a special needs pussy cat, I would have been put to sleep at the pound straight away. Lots of people don't realize, but pets surrendered to the pound by their owners can be put to sleep straight away. Hard to believe..but that's what happens. Anyway..I was one of the lucky ones.

At the time my family surrendered me, I was very overweight and a sad pussy cat. Sydney Pet Rescue thinks that I was likely a cruelty case. It took a long time, with kindness and patience from my foster carers, to help me learn to trust people, and for me to get down to my ideal weight, but I did! We learned that I am one of those pussy cats that prefers to be an only cat, though I might be ok with one other laid back pussy cat. We also learned that the sort of home or foster home that I do best in is a quiet patient caring home, without children or other pets, though one other laid back pussycat might be ok too. Because of my special needs, it's been so hard for me to find just the right foster home or forever home.

I did really well with my last foster carer, and I showed that I have a sweet affectionate side. I used to love to sit beside my last foster carer on the sofa or especially to roll about on my lambswool and to play with my mouse. I was happy and my confidence really grew when I was with her. I had to go into emergency boarding at Puss n Boots more than a year ago when she couldn't look after me anymore. Puss n Boots have taken excellent care of me, but I've been waiting such a long time for my turn to have a foster carer or forever home.

I just know there's a foster home or forever home for me...somewhere. If you are an experienced cat carer and have room in your heart, and your life for a little girl like me, even if only for a while, please contact my family, Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption on 0403 254 960 for more information Thank you for reading my story. Love from Melody x
PS. I come with a hamper of Goodies and good support from my family SPRA.
PPS. Even if you can't take me, if you could take one of SPRA's other foster cats, that might free up a space with an experienced foster carer for me. I'll keep my paws crossed. :)

Thanks to my previous sponsors Iris & Hanky - Nov 2011 till Jan 2012  x x x

Timmy & Bailey born 30/4/12

CAN YOU FOSTER US ?

"can you offer us a place in your home ?"

16/10/15 Timmy & Bailey are being sponsored by Grace Lee @ $40 per mth.. purrrrrr

Brothers Timmy and Bailey are very smoochy cats who are looking for a home together as they are closely bonded. Timmy is more timid than Bailey and would suit a family without younger children as he can get quite scared.

Bailey - Unusual markings on Bailey. He is a short haired tabby but he has classic dark tabby circles. White around his whiskers and mouth but a black nose. Very handsome and smoochy boy. He has a funny habit of wanting to lick your eyelid when he gets really smoochy. Of course the kids think it's hilarious which only encourages him more!!
 
Timmy - Tiger striped tabby. Looks like Bailey's twin. A little more timid but still smoochy. He loves to play with the laser light and carries little toys around in his mouth. I keep finding kid's toys in his food bowl.

Both have tested negative to FIV/FELV

December 2014-June 2015  Timmy and Bailey send grateful purrs and hugs to Grace who sponsored them at $40 each per mth

New home or foster carer needed for TC
 
 Would you like to sponsor me?
Full sponsorship $40 per month. Half sponsorship $20 per month.
Sponsorships are tax deductible 
 


 
TC  (Top Cat) steel grey tabby with a white bib, was rescued with his brother ChooChoo at 2wks old with their mum Izzy  They had to be hand reared as Izzy was too sick to care for them. Izzy is now healthy and ready for her new home, she is listed separately.

October 2013 TC is a handsome boy with a very gentle nature. He was formerly in foster care with his beloved brother Choo Choo. Choo Choo was injured earlier this year, necessitating a separation of the brothers. (- see our 'pets needing urgent help' page for more details. )

TC was at first reserved and missing his brother terribly, but then bonded in foster care with Missy, a beautiful brown 10 month old female tabby kitten. She was as fearless as he was shy. She "brought him out of his shell" and  they played, chased and wrestled together frequently; and, occasionally snuggled together in a bedtime embrace.
TC is a smoochy boy who loves his food and getting brushed
TC is looking for a new foster home or permanent home, perhaps with with his mum Izzy or another cat as a playmate.

TC is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped and has tested negative for FIV. He would make an ideal indoor companion for your family.

23/7/15 Izzy has a half sponsorship from Michael Fidlehouse @ $20 per mth..Purrs & hugs
 20/1/12 Izzy is a tiny little short-haired dark tortoiseshell with big green eyes and a fiery orange stripe down her nose. She is a delicate and softly spoken little thing who enjoys being with people. While she can be a little timid with new people she quickly warms up to everyone and loves a good pat, cuddle and ear scratch.
 
Izzy has had a bit of a rough start to life. She was rescued with 5 kittens who had to be hand raised as Izzy needed an operation for a blocked intestine to save her life.  It was touch and go for a while, but she’s a tough little thing and has come through it well. When she came to me she was very skinny and underweight. Fortunately she loves her food and she's improved greatly in just a few weeks, although she appears to be naturally small and slender.
Izzy has an adorable little miaow that sometimes is barely audible. When it can be heard, her miaow sounds more like a squeak, which had led to the nickname ‘Pipsqueak’.
 
Izzy has been very content to live inside and enjoys sitting up high and watching people. She can also keep herself amused and is happy to spend the day by herself whilst I'm at work. Like all youngsters Izzy loves to have a play and chase, but her favourite thing to play with is long shoelaces.
She was initially cautious with my two other cats and has gotten used to their presence over a few weeks and now isn't fazed by them at all.
 
Izzy would make a great companion and would fit easily into any household. She has had a rough start in life and appreciates the simple pleasures of a comfy bed, a bowl of food and a warm lap to snuggle on.
Izzy has tested negative to FIV
 
 

Benny & Charlotte born 18/10/11

Can you sponsor us ?

Full sponsorship $40 per month. Half sponsorship $20 per month.
Sponsorships are tax deductible

Benny is on the right in photo below

 

Benny and Charlotte spend so much time snuggling together, it?s sometimes hard to see where one cat ends and the other begins.  They have been known to squeeze into the same bed and transform into a single two-headed cat!  There have even been a couple of times where they have both sat on my lap together ? quite an honour as Benny is not normally a lap-cat like Charlotte.  They are completely inseparable, but have quite different personalities which come out in funny ways.  They love playing together and Charlotte will often lie in wait for Benny and jump on him when he turns the corner ? very amusing to watch!

Charlotte is a dainty pale orange tortoiseshell with the cutest stripe down her nose.  She is timid at first and will hide until she gets to know you, but then her cheeky affectionate nature will come out and she will soon be demanding to sit on your lap the minute you flop onto the sofa.  She loves company and will often follow you room to room, happy just to be near you.  She is talkative and has a different meow for every occasion, especially food time.  Once she is completely comfortable with you she has a lovely quiet purr that comes out when being petted curled on your lap.  She is tireless when playing and will continue to tear around long after Benny gets bored/tired.  Her favourite toy is a piece of string dragged across the floor ? she will chase this all around the room and over the furniture.  She also often amuses herself by batting a toy about and chasing it down the hallway, skidding on the wooden floor.  Any hair ties left on a table will quickly disappear and become Charlotte?s newest toy!

Benny is a gorgeous charcoal tabby with bright yellow eyes and white bib and a lovely quiet nature.  He is initially less shy than Charlotte, but still takes a little while to build up trust, though he does appreciate and respond to affection.  He loves being brushed and will roll around on the floor and gently head-butt you if you stop.  He also really enjoys a good belly rub and scratch behind the ears.  His favourite toy is a scrunched up ball of paper to chase or attached to a piece of elastic and flicked down a corridor ? he will chase at full tilt.  Benny is not usually as vocal as Charlotte, except when he wants to play.  You will hear him coming to find you, making an odd-sounding meow due to the toy in his mouth!  Benny knows his name and will come when called.  He is also an opportunist when it comes to food, so take care not to leave choice items (tuna!) on a kitchen bench as he will jump up and eat it.
These two will make a lovely addition to your family.  Can you offer them a furever home ?

Benny & Charlotte tested FIV negative

Charlotte and Benny were adopted from us by their foster carer but unfortunately were surrendered back to us when she had to move permanently overseas and was unable to take them with her.

They are now located in Fairlight

 

MISSY (f) tabby born 25/12/12 approx


 Would you like to be my Sponsor?

Full sponsorship $40 per month. Half sponsorship $20 per month.

5/2/13 Missy(f) was rescued at 6wks old. She is a pretty  brown tabby. Missy is FIV negative

2/6/13 Missy ? short for 'Mischief', is a very pretty brown tabby who is absolutely fearless. She is very affectionate and adores both humans and other cats. She would not however, be suitable for a household with very young children.
She would be best suited to a household where she will be retained indoors or to a household with an outdoor enclosure. She is very active and must have at least one other feline companion (a multi-cat household would be even better).
She will return affection ten-fold, but is confident enough to be independent when the mood strikes.

Missy is waiting for you now !

Missy is located in Alexandria


DOMINO (m) sweet & affectionate boy

Domino (m) is a splendid medium-haired white cat with a few black markings on his head and body, a black tail chequered white underneath and lemon-yellow eyes, born approx October 2008
His current carer says - Domino is an incredibly affectionate and placid cat. He adores company and likes to be cuddled and stroked.  He has a gorgeous soft, long and fluffy coat and appreciates a brush once a week. He has the calmest temperament of any cat that I have met and likes to follow you everywhere you go. At bed time he walks himself to his bedroom and waits anxiously to be tucked in and kissed good night. He is best suited for a family who is happy to pay him attention and in return will be by your side and be a beautiful companion.

Domino seems to have the traits of a Turkish Van, as you can see from this article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Van .
10/11/10 Domino has tested FIV negative

Would you like to be my Sponsor?
Full sponsorship $40 per month. Half sponsorship $20 per month.
Sponsorships are tax deductible



Pixie is a pretty short haired calico torti with an unusual coloured coat.The black markings are only on one side. She is full of life and just loves chasing shoelaces, picking them up and playing tug of war with you, also likes batting table tennis balls back to you especially when she is inside her tunnel or on top of the pen. She hardly meows- she makes little yipping sounds when she sees her food coming and jumps up and down .(she is very food orientated) She loves exploring and has worked out how to use the cat flap.
Playing inside the cat tunnel is another big favourite.  She dashes around when let out of her room. She is shy with strangers at first but is a very smoochy girl once she trusts you and then she will give you head rubs & roll on her side for lots of pats. She enjoys being patted and brushed., She will let me pick her up onto my lap for a short time, and has jumped onto my lap by herself a few times . If you stroke one cat, the others come up to ask for their share.
Pixie has become friends with Scotty and can be found cuddled up with him at times.

Pixie would be suited to a quiet home with no young children, and needs to be kept indoors out of the sun to avoid her pink nose getting skin cancer..
I found Pixie to be a lovely cat to care for, she makes me smile with her antics. Pixie is FIV negative
Pixie is located in Bexley together with Scotty.


GEM born 6/10/09- sweet natured

Gem is being sponsored by CD @ $40 per month from September 2013

GEM is a blue torty and is an absolutely beautiful and very affectionate cat who is looking forward to a new home with another cat as a playmate if possible.
Maria says - Gem is a darling little girl with a very sweet nature.  She gets along extremely well with the other cats and the dog in the house.  Gem loves running around and playing with her toys, and every so often she chases around with one of the resident cats.  She has brought to the house a calm that we have not been able to achieve for some time, it is almost as if she is a 'peace maker' amongst the pets.  As much as Gem loves a little cuddle from me when I find her curled up asleep she isn't demanding of any more then that.
Gem is located in Belmore
 

CLEMENTINE  (born Nov'09) & her son DASH, born 25/10/10

I need a Sponsor

Full sponsorship $40 per month. Half sponsorship $20 per month.
Sponsorships are tax deductible 

Clementine and her day-old kittens were rescued from death row.

Clementine (F) is a slender and elegant black and white cat. She has a lovely black coat (chocolate-brown in the sunlight), with a white blaze, bib, stomach and front paws, and enormous yellow-green eyes. Clementine is a gentle and friendly young cat with a quirky little personality, who likes company and a little space to explore. She was very thin when rescued but has since put on a little weight and is in good health. She has been a fastidious mother and plays lovely chasing and wrestling games with the kittens. Clementine is sociable with the other foster cats and very relaxed with human visitors, and is looking forward to her own special and loving home.
10/11/10 - Clementine has been tested and is FIV negative.
and is ready to find her new furever home


Dash (M) is a short-haired black and white boy.He was rescued with his mum Clementine from Death Row with his brother Indigo who has been adopted.
Clementine and her kitten Dash have similar personalities. They walk lightly on this planet. Both are rather shy with people (Dash more so than his mother) so if you are planning to adopt one or both of them, you will have to be patient to gain their confidence.  Being gentle is the key to gain their hearts. Once they warm to you, they are very engaging and gentle. If they are not both adopted by the same person, they will probably do best as the only pet in the household.
They are located in Zetland

Nov 2010-Our grateful thanks to Margaret for her donation of Breeders Choice and kitten food- purrs from all of us x x x

They both love a cuddle, and to sit as close as possible to you on the sofa or bed and snuggle up to you.

Hi, My name is Scotty and I was born in Jan 2010 I think. I am sharing Lucy's home in Bexley with Pixie and 3 other cats. I am very friendly and like to give them all head butts to say hello.
I cuddle up to them to sleep sometimes, especially with Tiger who is 19yrs old. I love being brushed and made a fuss of. When you stroke me I will purr for you and give you kisses. I like lying inside my cat tunnel and peering out to see what is going on.  I have a very quiet meow. I am toilet trained and always cover up everything in my litter box. I love my food and especially love raw chicken necks..yumm. I am a clever boy and have learned how to use the cat flap to access the balcony by watching the other cats. My favourite toys are little fluffy pompoms and soft mice. I love to toss them about and catch and chase them.
I am a very healthy boy and have tested FIV negative.

Kit-Kat at 4mths old                                      Dec'09

Kit Kat (born 30 Sept'08 approx) was rescued from Death Row at the pound, along with his mother Ruby. As we did not have a foster carer for them, they went  straight to a vet clinic for boarding for 3 weeks. Kit Kat was only about 4 months old at the time and still drinking from his mother. Kit Kat seemed to be a healthy mature kitten at the time of rescue, and so we were shocked to get a call from the vet clinic at the end of 3 wks suggesting that he should be euthanased due to a significant constipation condition. Alarmed at his reported condition, we collected Kit Kat immediately and booked him in for a specialist review at the Animal Referral Hospital. We were shocked that our previously healthy little boy had suddenly developed faecal and urinary incontinence whilst he was in boarding. There is no way that we would ever consider euthanasia as a first option for a non life threatening condition. We were determined to do everything in our power to help our precious little boy.
Kit Kat had a one week stay at the Animal Referral Hospital under the expert care of Dr Narelle Brown, Internal Medicine Specialist. He needed enemas every day to help him eliminate, and he had to have his bladder expressed daily. His prognosis was grim despite the excellent care he received at ARH. After leaving ARH, Kit Kat was reviewed by a neurologist, but this did not offer much hope either. It was thought that his chances of improvement were limited. Despite a poor prognosis, we remained hopeful that he might improve over the longer term, and hence we have continued with his treatment rather than considering euthanasia as an option.

After leaving the Animal Referral Hospital, Kit Kat had a 3 week stay at Kirrawee vet clinic under the expert care of Dr Bill Ilkin. Here he made some improvement but progress was slow, but we believe this is not unexpected for the type of condition he has. He has had a couple of periodic stays here in boarding when his foster carer was unavailable, which has provided a good opportunity for the clinic to assess his progress. At his recent review Bill, our vet, advised that Kit Kat had made surprisingly good progress. It is now more than 2 months since he has needed an enema.

We are pleased with Kit Kat’s progress and glad that we have persevered with his rehabilitation. Kit Kat’s  incontinence has improved and he does use his litter tray, although he is still on expensive medication to improve his bowel movements, and he does still need us to help him empty his bladder This just means that we need to toilet him similarly to how we would a young kitten which doesn’t have its mother. We wipe his little bot bot with some damp toilet paper, after he has finished his meal, and he wees reliably. We do this in his litter tray to reinforce his toileting habits. He does need his tail end bathed regularly to ensure he remains clean, but this is not too difficult as he is a co-operative little boy who seems to appreciate that we are doing this to help him.We hope that he will continue to improve over the coming months.

Kit Kat has now started going out to the cat enclosure with some of the other foster cats. He had the biggest look of surprise on his little face when we first started him going out into the enclosure. He gets on well with the other foster cats, though we only leave him with them for a few hours at a time. He still has his own room, with a nice warm heater at night, and all his favourite toys.

September '09 update
Kit Kat uses his litter tray, but still has some continence issues, however he is much easier to manage than 3 months ago. We still put him in his tray, and help him manage his toileting. He has only required one microlax enema in the last 4 months.
He is the most gorgeous, smoochy little boy. He loves nothing more than to be cuddled and give big kisses. He is worth the time and effort. Everyone loves Kit Kat.
 
Finding the right home for Kit Kat
Kit Kat is the most precious little boy. Those big golden brown eyes gaze up at you, as in a permanent look of wonder. He has a gorgeous squeaky little voice which just begs you to bundle him up in your arms and give him a big cuddle. He loves to smooch and wrap his little arms around your neck. He has always been alert, playful and happy, and otherwise healthy. He will be a wonderful and loving companion for the right home.  It is quite likely that he may have some ongoing special needs, but we think that these would be manageable for the right person. Kit Kat would need a dedicated and committed new owner who is willing to give him his medication 3 times a day (very easy, as he is the best patient ever and actually seems to like the taste of his medicine!). He will need someone willing and able to mainly maintain him in a tiled area which is easy to clean. We hope the need for this may lessen in the longer term, but maintaining him in an area which is easy to clean is important at least in the foreseeable future. Access to a cat enclosure would be a benefit as it would minimise the amount of cleaning and importantly improve Kit Kat’s quality of life. If you think you could offer Kit Kat a loving home, we would offer you in the first instance a Foster Care arrangement to enable you to take him on a trial basis. We would offer all the necessary support to ensure a successful outcome.

If you think you might be that special person who could potentially offer Kit Kat his own furever home, or if you would like to consider offering him a foster care placement, please complete a foster application form by clicking on the attached link. Foster Carer Application Form.doc
