ADOPTED PETS 2013
SEBASTIAN (m) born 1/5/11
25/12/13 Sebastian has been adopted by his carer Lisa in Collaroy
18/11/11 Sebastian is a handsome shorthaired Ginger tabby with lovely golden eyes. This boy is a real laid back kind of guy, he does not mind being around another cat, they just ignore each other. He is only a young adult and would make someone a lovely companion
He is very talkative, magnificent looking, and exceptionally affectionate.
Sebastian has tested positive to FIV. He has no symptoms and is a lovely healthy cat.
The implications are that he needs to be re-homed as a completely indoor cat which is safer anyway, and he needs to be re-homed to a home with no other cats or another FIV positive cat.
If you would like to offer Sebastian a loving home and would like to know more about owning an FIV+ve cat, please call our President Michelle who can tell you about her experience. She has 2 lovely cats who were diagnosed FIV+ve 2 yrs ago. They have never had any symptoms and remain completely healthy. SPRA’s bookkeeper also had an FIV+ve cat which was diagnosed at approx 10 yrs of age land which lived until 18yrs of age, when it passed away due to unrelated causes. Specialists have advised us that they expect that FIV +ve cats who are well cared for and maintained indoors, can still potentially live long and happy lives, though there tends to be a lack of documented data on these sorts of cases.. To find out more contact Michelle on 0403 254 960.

Jemima & Pippa (renamed Jessie) born 19/9/13
8/12/13 Jemima and Pippa have been adopted by Melissa from Hassall Grove.
Jonah born 5/11/11
DOLCE & DIOR (Last 2 Bucket babies) born 14/1/10
25/09/13 Dolce and Dior have been adopted by their foster carer, Laila, from Kareela
These lucky sisters were rescued from drowning at a few weeks old, in a bucket of water where they were left by a heartless person.
Dior (Blue torti/white) has a beautiful medium hair silky coat and great plume of a tail which she often chases and sometime catches.
Dolce follows me around the house everywhere and just wants to be around me.
Dior on the other hand approaches when she is ready, however when she does she likes to be cuddled for longer periods of time.
They both like to be picked up and held and have never scratched me once; they have such sweet and gentle souls. These are purrfect cats for affectionate people who have a soft spot for animals.
The amount of affection that they give is just adorable. I have a basket of toys that travel around the house with them, this is an easy way for me to know how they have occupied their day. They are now used to my camera and gladly pose without a problem. They also are incredibly neat, do not make a mess and don’t leave any surprises for me apart from in their litter; very well behaved ladies.

DUSTY (m) born 28/1/13
ED ginger/white (m) kitten born 25/12/12 approx
14/9/13 Ed has has been adopted by Michelle in Ryde
5/2/13 Ed is a just rescued 6wks old kitten. Ed has a very sweet and placid nature and loves cuddles. He is very tolerant of the other friskier kittens
3/3/13 Update from Belinda
Ed is the sweetest little man, very gentle, very playful & very affectionate. He wants to be with you all the time. He loves it when I sweep & mop the floors, chasing the broom or mop and thinks this game is just for him, it takes me twice as long to clean my floors , but I cant resist playing with him, he is a true delight, he would suit any family. He is just a great little kitten.
He is with Belinda S in Sutherland
MAX born 17/10/11
31/08/13 Max has been adopted by Sandra from Roseville Chase.
Update 2/6/13 Max is a very handsome black medium/long-haired boy with a silken coat. He has a very sweet and gentle nature. A little reserved at first, he will soon have you wrapped around his paw.
He has a very healthy appetite and is always the first one to present himself at meal time. He gets along well with other cats and unlike many male cats, does not tease the female cats in his current household.
He is affectionate and loves to cuddle up at any opportunity. He is very agile and loves to explore in and on top of cupboards, given the opportunity.
He would be best suited to a household with at least one other cat, and is very gentle with kittens.
MILO (m) born 23/2/13 approx
30/7/13 Milo has been adopted by his carer Sarah-Jayne in Collaroy
Milo is so gorgeous – a real handsome little fellow. He is a little trickster and likes to play with his sister Hetty. They both like to be played with and love chasing a ping pong ball across the floor then settling down for a nice nap together.
HONEY born 23/2/13 approx
Honey is a gorgeous almost apricot colour and is developing a gorgeous white patch on her chest. She loves to sit on your lap and is beginning to build her confidence with people, after a poor start in life. She is really happy to see me when I walk into the room and runs up to me purring for some cuddles.
SOPHIE (Ragdoll) born March 2011 approx
Hetty & Caramel born 23/2/13 approx
Hetty is so affectionate, she would love a lap to curl up on. She runs about with her brothers but is a gentle little thing. She has the most striking markings on her sides, and purrs when she sees you.
Caramel is a little darker ginger and smaller than Honey and loves to play with her sister. She is also affectionate and is beginning to lose her shyness. She likes nothing more than a big dish of food and a snuggle up with her sister Honey
They are with Sarah-Jayne in Collaroy
ELLIEMAE (f) fox terrier blend born approx September 2011
26/4/13 Elliemae has been adopted by Danielle at Menai
We have rescued this little girl who was surrendered by her owner….you’d wonder how anyone could surrender to a pound knowing that surrenders can and often are euthanased the same day.
30/3/13 We now have Elliemae home in care with us. She is soooo much cuter than the photo. She is a tiny little thing. Has settled in already….running madly around the house and yard. Has no issues with our cat
31/3/13 Elliemae definitely just wants to be around the people in her life. If we are outside, she is happy to go outside….however she is not happy to stay outside whilst we are inside. She is not overly interested in food at present…(she only weighs about 7kg)…. but she could be still settling in.
She needs to be in a home where she can be inside all the time – including sleeping. Maybe a house with another little dog would also be beneficial as she seemed to get along with all the other dogs that she was caged with out at Renbury Farm.
She is toilet trained and is a very healthy looking dog.
She is gorgeous and just wants to be with you. She probably just needs reassurance that you are not going to disappear from her life as her previous owners did.
She is in care with Danelle whilst she waits for her special home.
TABBY (m) born 23/2/13 approx
25/04/13 Tabby has been adopted by his foster carer – Sarah-Jayne in Collaroy
Oh what a lovely kitten! He is so focused on humans rather than his kitten friends and when you walk into the room he runs to you purring. He is always the first to get some fuss and head butts your hand straight away to show you he loves you. He does love having a play and has a thing about sitting on your feet! He seems to have some Bengal markings on his tum and back.
RUBY – sweet and gentle girl.
17/4/13 Ruby has been adopted by her foster carer, Chris, from Mascot
16/10/11 Ruby was rescued with her 4 kittens. Jade-Louise, Paddy, Maxie & Louie, all now adopted.
Ruby(mum) is a really lovely girl. She is sweet and gentle and not shy. She’s fine with dogs and cats once she gets to know them, and they are OK with her. She isn’t a cat that likes to sit on your lap, but she’ll follow you around the house and likes to be near you. She is very sociable and is fine with strangers.
HANNAH & HOPE born 3/11/09 approx
15/4/13 Hannah and Hope have been adopted by their foster carer, Megan, from Erskineville.
The girls have recently moved from their original foster carers’ home and are now living in Erskineville with Megan and Tom. They would like to be rehomed together if possible.
Both cats are house trained and scratch their scratching posts rather than the furniture. They would be suited to a quietish home and where they can be kept solely indoors. They have lived a fairly sheltered life so far but are currently being introduced to lots of new things and adapting well. They are a delight to have around the house.
Hope – black and white short haired, a beautiful looking girl with the cutest black nose, she enjoys playing with her toys, chasing ping pong balls around the room and having a good scratch on her scratching post. Hope is the more confident of the sisters and usually the first to go exploring, she will stretch out on the floor for a pat and tummy rub after a good playing session.
Hannah – black and white medium haired, her facial markings look a bit like batman’s mask covering both her eyes. Hannah took a little longer to come out of her shell, however once comfortable she is a complete flirt rolling onto her back begging for tummy rubs, a brush and a bit of a smooch. Hannah loves playing in her cat tunnel, snoozing on the couch and playing with toys.
Hope and Hannah are with Megan & Tom in Erskineville
JAIME-Ginger tabby boy- born 14/2/13
23/3/13 rescued from Renbury Farm
6/4/13 Jaime has moved to Rose Bay vet for rehoming
JAZPER born Oct’07 gentle & shy
Jasper loves chasing the other cats so would be happy to be with another cat as a playmate, though he may be fine on his own with a caring owner. He is a very gentle boy and
has a cute habit when being stroked on your lap, of stretching and then slowly sliding off your lap onto the floor. He usually sleeps on his own in his special spot in the lounge room. He is very quiet and rarely meows, except when inside a carrier going to the vet. He is not impressed with that.. He has learnt to use a cat flap to access the balcony.
He will need a patient owner to spend time winning his trust, he is well worth the effort..He would be best suited to a quiet household with no young boisterous children and kept indoors for security as he would be frightened outside and may run off.
Location- with Lucy in Bexley
Many thanks to C&D from Cronulla for their kind donation of Purina Natural Blends dry food and the lovely comfy bed -lots of purrs from Jade and Jasper x x x
Oct’09 Grateful thanks to Iris & Hanky from Beverly Hills who have sponsored Jazper till Jan2012

LIL is a pretty orange tortoiseshell tabby girl and would love to find her own furever home with a loving family. Lil loves people, dogs and cats.
Kerryn advises -Lil is a gorgeous tall and slinky tabby. She has heaps of personality, has the loudest purr I have ever heard in such a young cat and is the most affectionate cat I have ever met. She is adorable. She loves to play with all the animals in my house and just loves Maggie the dog as you can see in the pic of her and Maggie. She has heaps of energy and an incredible zest for life. She would rather follow you around than be confined to one room. She talks to you all the time. In the morning she is first at the door waiting for breakfast and if I am not quick enough she sounds like she is shouting encouragement for me to move my ….
May no longer be a supermodel but still has the superpurr. Loads of personality. Loves cuddles and loves to sleep on your lap. A lady of the cat world. Likes to hold a conversation with you in between her purrs.
Lil has pink on her ears & nose so she will have to be an indoors cat to avoid getting skin cancer from exposure to strong sunlight..
Lil is with Heidi in Gymea
ISAAC (m) born 24/3/11 approx
16/02/13 Isaac has been adopted by Michelle from Dee Why
24/8/11 Update from Jane-Isaac was almost hit by a car in the car park of a local pub, before he was rescued by a kind person.
He is a very playful kitten who loves to chase after balls and claw at dangly cat toys. It is most amusing when he has worn himself out from playing with his toys. He then puts himself into my lap and looks up at me with those lovely green eyes.He meows often when you call his name which we find very cute.
Isaac has been around a five year old child and played happily with the child and allowed him to pat him also.
However he is not comfortable together with dogs.
Dec 2012 – Isaac is now with Vicki in Collaroy who says-Isaac has settled here very well, he is a gorgeous cat with a lovely temperament. He really is a lovely cat, who is still very playful but also likes cuddles too, he is very talkative and a little mischievous which is a delightful combination.

Lizzie is medium hair, dark tabby kitten, very pretty. She is a little shy just now as she is still settling in, but is happy to sit with you and have cuddles.
She is with Belinda in Sutherland
HEWIE & LOUIE – 2 Years old, Papillon X (Hewie Brown and White, Louie Party Colour)
16/1/13 Hewie & Louie have been adopted by Andrew
Hewie and Louie were in emergency boarding at Pet Active for 22 weeks. Their total boarding costs came to $3080 – we would be very grateful for any donations to help towards their boarding costs
We took Hewie and Louie when their previous owner became ill and unable to look after them. They were quite timid and needed experienced foster care. Due to their special needs we had to put them into emergency private boarding, which whilst subsidised, still worked out costly over the long term. Hewie and Louie are gorgeous little dogs, who just needed us to hang in there with them, whilst they were building up their confidence. Our volunteer Tanya kindly worked hard to help them, doing site visits to check on their progress, and putting ads up to help them find a home. Thank you Tanya
9.10.12 Hewie and Louie have been in foster care, with the view to adoption over the last 8 wks. They are being adopted by a lovely couple to be mates for their pomeranian. Tanya has visited them and they are very happy. Adoption is due to be finalised.
Their previous owner Kaye is so grateful that we were able to take them, when she was unable to care for them, that she is continuing to raise funds until their emergency boarding costs are covered.
