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.

Male, approx DoB: Nov 2019

Vinnie is a lovable character who likes to make instant friends with whoever is interested. He loves to crawl onto a lap and get and give as much affection as possible. He often ends upside down with his feet and butt in the air as he leans into the much-loved chin scratch. He appreciates foster care, but he’s not allowed in the house, so he’s really looking forward to a family of his own where he can have a bit more space and time to hang out with his beloved humans. Better suited to an adult home or with children over 10 yrs.


Female, approx 8 months old.

Beautiful tortoiseshell Winnie is looking for her forever home. She has transformed from being very scared and timid to discovering the joy of life. She will be wary at first but once she learns to trust you she is bundle of fun and activity. She will need a home where her new family or person takes their time with her and she will need to kept inside for at least 12 weeks while she settles in. She is desexed and fully vaccinated. It is said that tortoiseshell cats have distinct personalities and often love their owners with fierce loyalty. So if you are ready for a Tortie in your life get in touch.
