Hi I’m Goldie. I’ve had a rough start to life but I’m eager for a comfortable home and loving family.View Full Profile
I don’t really like to be held but I love pats and head kisses. I know how to pull your heartstrings to get my way, deny me my wants and I’ll tilt my head and cry to you, it’s adorable.
I’m very independent and I don’t really like competition so I would suit someone without any other pets. I’m eating all my food and using my litter tray.
Hello, my name is Hutch, my favourite things are food and a good cuddle.View Full Profile
I play well with others and I like following my carer around, so I don’t miss out on anything.
I’ve been desexed, wormed, microchipped and vaccinated.
I’m litter trained and I’m a great eater.
Hi my name is Percy I’m a pretty face that had a hard start to life in a shed.View Full Profile
I’m a little shy at first but once I get to know you i will be your best friend.
I love attention and as much patting as you can give me. I have a very relaxed nature and am very curious.
Hi I’m River, my name means water. I’m very timid and a little bit scared of high places, so I need to be picked up slowly. I love pats and to play with toys. I’ll watch you intently if you talk to me, and I like to join in in activities rather than find my own thing to do, I go with the flow. I’m only little and I’m still a bit shy so I’ll need a quiet family with gentle hands and patience for me. I like company and will be the perfect companion for someone who has time to spend with me. I’m eating all my food and using my litter tray.View Full Profile
Hi I’m RizzoView Full Profile
I’m a sweet girl and absolutely no trouble. I love to run around and play with my siblings and hide in the tunnel but then just love a cuddle at the end of it.
I have a good appetite and am not a fussy eater.
I am used to being around other cats and dogs but I can get scared when they bark.
I’d love to find a home who has lots of time for cuddles.

Super curious & also clumsy at times, I'm getting use to being in a loud & loving home with kids around me.
Older cats seem to be bothered by me but I'm sure in time they will love me too.

Hi I’m Tux and I have a big personality to match a big heart. I love to run and climb especially with my siblings and other cats.View Full Profile
I am comfortable with dogs as well but I may just need a bit of time to get to know them.
I am always around my foster carers and am pretty good asking for attention. I’ll let you know when I’m hungry as I love my food.
