Thanks for interest in our kitties that are ready for adoption! The beautiful kitties on this page have been waiting the longest and would love to find their forever home soon. All our kitties have been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and registered on the NZ Companion Animal Register. Thank you for understanding that to help us cover these costs, adoption fees apply.

available for adoption


Male, approx DOB April 2021

He was one of our Foster's first cats that they fostered, and was trapped on their property out in Hawea flat. He never found his forever home unfortunately, and is now back in foster care after being the neighborhood cat for the last two years. He is quite affectionate, loves his cuddles and pats, but is quite independent, and likes the outdoors. 


Male, approx DOB November 2022

A lovely young cat that we fostered last year and got adopted to a couple. Unfortunately he has recently come back to us, as the couple split up and he was left abandoned. He is doing really well in foster care again, and has shown to really love dogs.
He is Very playful and affectionate. He is also very independent and loves the outdoors, so a place to roam free, would be ideal.


Female, approx DOB 01/01/2019

Meet the best biscuit maker in Wanaka, Stevie! Whilst was quite shy at first, it only took a couple weeks for her to settle in with us and now she loves to snuggle up with her humans on the couch or on a lap. Equally to cuddles she loves food, naps and her alone time. Would suit someone with a bit of patience to start and who respects her boundries, you will then be rewarded with the sweetest little companion.”
