• • • update Merry Christmas from “ Pinocchio & Gin ” By Kirsten Darling
Pinocchio and Jiminy ( who we
now call Gin ) have settled in
tremendously – they are living in
a family of 2 adults, 2 teenagers
and 2 poodles one Coco and the
Pinocchio was super confident
with the dogs from the start. Gin
took a little longer, but they are
all now so content with each
other, to the point they will all
share a very large dog bed.
The cats love greeting the dogs
in the morning and insist on
getting fed before the dogs. They
then like coming upstairs and
having a cuddle before we get
ready for the day. We cannot
believe what a fabulous addition
they are to the family and are so
happy we adopted them.
The “Boys” will be with us for
the rest of their lives and they
have such a special place in
all our hearts. We can’t wait to

MEET “ SESAME ”
One of the most affectionate kitties you
will ever meet. He is a non stop purrer
who loves affectionate and attention. He
deserves to be cuddled and adored!

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE… Just because we humans like to indulge in the
feast does not mean it is good for our cats.
Rich, fatty foods can seriously upset your cat's
stomach and even be toxic. It is especially
important to keep your cat away from the
following dangerous foods: Onions, which can
cause anaemia (high levels of garlic can,
too), grapes and raisins, chocolate, bones
(especially cooked bones and ANY poultry
bones), alcoholic beverages and any foods
high in fat, sodium and/or sugar.
• It is easy to succumb to the
adorable puppies, kittens and
bunnies who appear in pet
store windows at this time of

a temptation for parents but

seriously injured if a candle ignites
his tail or his fur. Emergency

costly and if the burns are severe, Telephone: 9890 7220

The photo doesn't do this boy justice. Armadillo has a severe case of the sads and he curls
up like an armadillo when you pick him up. He seeks other cats company for comfort and
he's a very shy boy. He puts his ears back often because he's still getting used to people but
he means well and he's a really beautiful boy. He doesn't have a nasty bone in his body.
Armadillo is looking for a special home where his new owners will be patient with him and
give him time to settle in. He is a very special, sweet boy….
“ Armadillo was in foster care with me! He’s a big beautiful sweetheart and he just
craves love and a lounge or bed to chill on and he LOVES other cats. He got on
beautifully with my social playful one year old boy. Loves a donut bed and LOVES his
food and enjoys singing to his friends” Gabrielle
