is good but what we understand is that the cats in the cattery
have been moved out (to temporary runs in the dog kennelling
area) and as a consequence we are not certain if, or when, we
will be able to return to the cattery for photos.

Here is an update on a couple of

These two are a perfect example of
why you should adopt a rescue.

With his bright red Santa hat on and
standing in front of a Christmas tree this
should be a happy festive photo but...
Poor Affanoso looks so sad, forlornly staring
at the camera. What is his history? We only
know that he came into the pound some
weeks ago from Marsden Park. He is a
strikingly coloured tabby with amazing odd
coloured eyes. Do you have love to spare?
This gorgeous boy is impound 4856 at
Blacktown Pound. He is 4-6yrs old, and is
just $110 to adopt. He will be desexed,
vaccinated (F3), micro chipped and life-time
registered. If you are interested, please call

Shelter since 02/10/2015
Tiger is one of the most top notch kitties we
have at the shelter at the moment. This
talkative feline is so friendly she will approach
anyone for a pat and a chin scratch. Tiger may
be 11 years young, but you wouldn’t know it,
this gorgeous girl has a twinkle in her eye and a
bounce in her step that makes her appear much,
much younger. Tiger is a rare ginger tabby
female, and her special face just captures her
lively and fun-filled personality.
This senior girl still has many plans for her
remaining years and she wants more than
anything to spend them with someone who will
love her, do you have room in your heart for
this exceptionally unique kitty?
