Miki (microchip 900 164 000 314 099), Niki (microchip 900 164 000 314 083) born 19/2/13 

29/11/19 Miki & Niki have been adopted by Max in Blackheath

 

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, 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

Charlotte born 18/10/11 (microchip 982 000 167 860 450)

September 2019 Charlotte has been adopted by her foster carer Ellie

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.  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!
Charlotte is negative for FIV

PIXIE born 25/2/11 approx

28/6/19 Pixie has been adopted by her foster carer Lucy in Bexley

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 is FIV negative

MELODY

October 2018 Melody has been adopted by Michelle in Sylvania

Melody's story....
I'm a pretty blue and white girl born approx 2004. 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 realise, 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.

CAESAR born 2005

August 2018 Caesar has been adopted by his foster carer Kylie

We first met Caesar in January 2015 when I was a volunteer with SPRA and we took in him for vacation care. Brett and I had lost our own dog the year before and we felt ready to take that step again and foster a dog in need of care.
Over that year we fostered him for a few short stints and also nursed him for a few weeks after his surgery to remove his eye due to a tumour in May 2015.

During that year he was diagnosed with cancer and was the perfect patient going through chemo, so when his foster carer couldn’t look after him any more we made the decision to take him in for his twilight years and he’s been with us permanently for the last 18 months.
In that time he has made his way into our hearts and into the hearts of everyone who cared for him as he was such a good patient, including Kirrawee Vet Hospital and the wonderful vets at SASH where he was a regular in the past year.

He had been through so much and was such a fighter to the end.
He always maintained his gentle soul and just loved human company. He loved the simple things in life – food, going for walks and cuddles.
His staffy smile and waggly tail melted our heart every time we saw him.

MINNIE (f) born 19/12/17 approx

April 2018 Minnie has been adopted by Lucy in Barden Ridge who has been fostering her

Minnie came to SASH in March 2018 as a duty of care kitten.
Domestic Medium Hair, 12 weeks old, sweet nature.
Poor little Minnie was found up a tree, and brought in by a member of the public. SASH thinks she was there for a while as she was quite dehydrated and infested with fleas

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

January 2018 Missy has been adopted by her foster carer David

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.
