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


Female, approx DOB January 2024

Bailey, a semi long hair kitten with semi tabby and white coloring, is quite the affectionate sweet young kitten, once she gets to know you. She has taken a long time to settle into a home environment, but we have finally started to enjoy her full potential. She is funny and curious, but also is a very nervous kitten when it comes to being around people. She would suit a couple with a lot of patience, as she will take time to settle in to her new home.

Mini C

Female, approx DOB January 2023

Mini loves to explore her surroundings and is always up for a game of chase or a session with her favorite toys. She's curious and adventurous and loves a good chat making her a great fit for an active household looking for a furry friend to keep them entertained.
Despite her playful nature, Mini also enjoys her downtime and is known to curl up for a catnap in a cozy spot when she's tuckered out from all the excitement. She's affectionate and enjoys being near her humans, but is definitely best suited for an adult household as she likes to come to you for scratches rather than being scooped up and cuddled. She will take some time to warm up to you but when she does she'll make you feel very loved.


Female, approx DOB January 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.”


At Cat Rescue Wanaka, we have a dedicated volunteer Adoption Coordinator who helps to facilitate a good match between you and the kitty, with guidance from the foster parents who know their foster kitties the best.
