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.

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.



Female, approx 9 months old.

Pepper is super cuddly and enjoying following us around the house. She currently lives with two other cats and enjoys their company. She is very playful and enjoys running around the house with her ball. She has never been around dogs or children and can be very shy around new people
