Where is my Some of my memorable moments from
furever home... adopted older fur-children:

• Having a 4+ year old relearn how to purr

after having him for 4 months – it sounded
initially like a small struggling motorbike or
old lawnmower, but after his second
attempt he had it down pat!

• Having a 10+ year old take over ownership

of the bed – the “queen is on her throne”
and loving it!

on a bed or couch with a person, lazing on a
My 5 top reasons for deck in summer or in front of a heater in winter,
adopting an older kitty and hanging out near the kitchen is another of
their highlights. They really aren’t hard to please
at all.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO FINALLY

There are many joys to be gained from adopting an CINNAMON (known at DoggieRescue before her

we adopted who is settling in well and enjoys
1. You are more likely to be able to assess the spreading out on the bed : ) Joshua Spence
personality of an older kitty than a kitten; a kitten’s
personality most likely is evolving and they won’t
necessarily act in the same way once more mature

2. You will also be able to know fairly well how
active your older kitty is, and whether they are a
good match to your lifestyle (house space, work,
children, other fur children)

3. Older kitties are less risk; they do necessarily
need to be coached on the dangers in life (other
animals, other people)

4. Older kitties are “less maintenance”; you do not
need to spend so much time training them (to use
the kitty litter tray, not to claw the furniture or
curtains), older kitties are more comfortable with
time alone and do not need to be amused or
entertained for large parts of the day

5. Older kitties are able to form just as close a
loving relationship; they may come with some
funny habits that have been formed with their
previous family, but these generally wind down over
time as they get use to you and your special habits ;)

Imp:3839 DAVOS

AT BLACKTOWN POUND

Davos, wouldn't we love to know your story! With his unique crossed eyed look he certainly is a cat
with lots of character and he also has a gorgeous personality. Davos is friendly and smoochy, loving
any bit of attention - he could do with a bit of spoiling. Wouldn't you love to have Davos in your life?

Davos was found at Wentworthville on the 29th September, and since no one came looking for him,
he is available to be adopted now. He is estimated to be between 3 and 7 years of age, which
means he will be happy sleeping the day away. If you are interested in adopting Davos, please
contact the facility and quote his impound number 3839. He will be $114 which includes desexing,
vaccination (F3), microchip and life-time registration (NSW).

• Feature DOGGIERESCUE A NO KILL SHELTER Written by Deb Rouse

Doggie Rescue is a no-kill Kittens available
shelter, one of the few true at The Cottage
no-kill rescue groups of a Animal Hospital
reasonable size in NSW. Ph: 9890 7220
On these two pages are
some easy ways you can What does no-kill mean? Wiki contains the definition
help and bring happiness “A "no-kill" shelter is an animal shelter that does not kill
to an abandoned pet, and healthy or treatable animals even when the shelter is full,
help us to save more! reserving euthanasia for terminally ill animals or those
considered dangerous to public safety.” Unfortunately
1. there are some who like to apply their own interpretation on
“healthy” and “behavioural issues”, and euthanize animals
based on the adoptability within a limited timeframe. Doggie
Rescue does not do this.

Biggest myth about no-kill shelters: The biggest
myth about no-kill shelters is that they are always
full and cannot accept new animals.

Doggie Rescue has a well proven reputation for animals
being adopted each week, and is always taking in new
rescues, most often those on death row who have not been
adopted by the public or other rescue groups. These are
most often the hardest cases, as they are not considered
pretty enough, or are too big, or too old, or with medical
conditions needing vet care, or timid, or having various
levels of anxiety of having been abandoned on the streets
or surrendered at a pound. Yet with the special care at
Doggie Rescue, new families with kind hearts are found.
.
Advocate for desexing & a pet for life approach:
Doggie Rescue ensures all our doggies and kitties to be
adopted are desexed. We also check with new families to
ensure they are dedicated to keeping the new family
fur-child for life, and consider what may happen and options
for care if something significant happens to the fur-parents.
In these ways we are looking to proactively address the
number of animals abandoned and surrendered.

• For online donations please see http://www.doggierescue.com, Deb
and click on the “Donations” tab or complete a donation at the
shelter office – you know everything over $2 is tax deductable :)

• And there are other donations such as sponsoring an animal or
helping with specific medical expenses for some of the rescued
bubs. You may even make a donation on behalf of a person’s
birthday or other celebratory event.

Second: become a volunteer.

It is not easy giving up your spare leisure time to generally come and
“muck-in” helping the doggies and kitties at the shelter. Cleaning and
feeding are the kindest basic things one can do for an animal, and of
course there is the opportunity for “cuddles”. Check out all the ways you
can volunteer at http://www.doggierescue.com and click on the “Help Us”

And of course, “love the one you got”, take care of all your fur-children,
and enjoy their close friendship for life.

Hello, my name is Basil 3yrs old. I am a very sweet and calm kitty! I can not stress how easy going I am!
I settled into the shelter immediately and was trotting around the cattery like I owned the place by the
second day! I love humans and love getting cuddles and back scratches. I've met both male and female
cats and I am so sweet with them and do an adorable nose touch to say hello. When I go into the
outdoor play area I am still a little shy, and I choose to hide under a pillow, but each time I go out there
I am getting more confident and starting to explore all the smells and sounds. I'd make a great addition
to any home looking for a friendly and gentle young man to add to their family. Imp. 5041

26 CATS IN TODAY

“ When we tell people how many cats and kittens we can impound in a single day, the answer can be

quite surprising. This time of year, it is not uncommon for us to get more than 20 cats/kittens in a single
day, for days at a time. We work hard to save as many as we can, supported by volunteer-run rescue

groups but the easiest way to save more cats is to DESEX your cats.” Brandon, Re Homing Officer

In ONE day Blacktown Animal Holding Facility started off with 3 kittens and No Kill Pet Rescue picked them up.
Then a mummy cat with her 2 sick babies arrived, then another mummy kitty with 5 babies and an emaciated cat
with severe dental issues and other medical issues arrived, almost at once. Our amazing friends Bek and Kathy
at Lap Warmers Cat Rescue picked all of them up whilst we searched around for rescue groups to take them on. It
didn't take long before Collaroy Veterinary Services put up their hand for the mum and 5 babies (thanks to Alison
for transporting), the lovely Laura from Kiki's Safehaven said she will rescue the emaciated boy and Claws 'n'
Paws Rescue said they will rescue the mum and 2 sick babies. Another 6 kittens arrived, and another 2 sick kittens
and another 2 kittens. Thankfully our friends at WOOF Dog Rescue, Denise at Paws and Brighter future cat
rescue have already picked up or have put a save on them.
This is the start of kitten season. It is easier now to find rescue groups to save them.
Soon it won't be. Blacktown Animal Holding Facility are putting out an urgent call out to
DESEX your cats. It is not all that long before Christmas and New Year will be upon us,
statistically the worst time of year for abandoned pets. What will happen to these
desperate, defenceless mums & bubs when Rescue Groups are full?
