Dot & Kevin #Bonded Pair# Hi There, I am Dot and this is my brother Kevin, I was the smallest one in my family... But I am also the sweetest! I have a really pretty face and a cuddly nature, whereas my brother Kevin is more of a "I'll come to you when I'm ready" type. He likes to choose the moment for cuddles, but when it's time to he will give you a nice massage before cuddling up with you. I will welcome your arms all... Read More Lupin Hi, I’m Lupin! I’ve been with my foster mum since I was a tiny little newborn, but now it’s time for me to find my forever home! I love spending my days chasing the sunshine (for napping purposes, of course) and playing with my sisters and brother, Fawkes, Fudge, and Nimbus. I’m particularly close with my sister Fawkes, and I’d love to go to a home with her, because we both love sleeping and playing together. If not, I really... Read More Fawkes Hi, I’m Fawkes! I’ve been with my foster mum since I was a tiny little newborn, but now it’s time for me to find my forever home! My passions include napping and hardcore zoomies, as well as play fighting with my sisters and brother, Lupin, Fudge, and Nimbus. Foster mum calls me twin 1 because of how similar I look to my brother, Nimbus. But that’s where the similarities end! I’d love to go to a home with my sister,... Read More

⛔️ Heat wave warning ⛔️

With the weather set to hit the high temperatures over today & tomorrow here are some tips to keep all members of your fam safe in the heat 👇

🐾 Keep them indoors in the aircon where possible

🐾 Make sure they have access to fresh/clean water

🐾 If pets can’t be inside, ensure they have shelter away from the sun - remembering that the sun moves throughout the day so it’s important to have multiple shade locations

🐾 Offering frozen treats - you can find heaps of recipes online!

🐾 Adding ice cubes to water bowls (the rumour that spread through Facebook that this is not safe was incorrect)

🐾 Having a cooling mat or damp towel that your pet can access

🐾 Only going for walks in the early morning or late evening if the temperature drops enough

🐾 Dogs and cats with smooth/thin hair and white coloured ears or noses can be more susceptible to skin cancers - look for an animal specific sunscreen, do not use human sunscreen as it can be harmful

🐾 Keep an eye on your pets for signs of heat distress. Including, but not limited to - excessive panting, drooling, vomiting, diarrhoea, reddened gums, mental dullness

🐾 Lastly, do not leave your pets in cars and call 000 if you see a pet locked in a hot car

🐦 It’s also a kind idea to leave fresh water out for our wildlife as they also struggle in the heat

So many beautiful homeless pets, so very sad. Often they are dumped or their owner passes. I’m 70, I have a 14 year old cat and a three year old dog, I’m hoping and praying I can outlive them, but they will be my last.

Elleny Mitchell

Oh how i would love to come and get you my sweet cat...I hope your loving home comes real soon..much love...from the Cat Lady..❤❤❤

I love the way he has been photographed as a decor item.😊
