Male Domestic Medium Hair Cat

Reggie is a medium hair well marked tabby boy with a big fluffy tail and a lovely soft coat. He is growing up fast and is now ready for rehoming... he was the baby in a litter of three and had a few feeding issues but is now growing into a very striking boy with beautiful big brown eyes. He has a gentle nature, loves playing with his kitty friends and gets on well with other cats and a small dog.
Reggie is a special needs cat - he had some teeth and gum issues early on and as a result he now only has four teeth after having the rest of them removed under surgery. He is unable to eat dry food, but other than that he enjoys life - loves chasing balls and playing with toys.
The first step is to phone (preferred ) or email Port Macquarie Animal Welfare Service for assessment regarding prospective ownership and pet suitability.
Adoption Application forms must be completed. A property inspection will be carried out on properties in the Port Macquarie area.
A 2 week trial period commences on the day of adoption.
All PMAWS dogs & cats are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heart & intestinal wormed, flea & tick treated.
Introducing a Kitten/Cat into a new home (especially where either a dog or cat already lives) can be a difficult challenge. It requires patience, perseverance and supervision. \
Once your new kitten/cat arrives home, it should be made to feel safe in its own room - we call this the "sanctuary". No other cat or dog should be allowed into this room. The kitten/cat will need bedding, food, water, a view out of a window and somewhere to hide. A good idea in dog and cat families is also a 2 metre tall scratching post, where a kitten/cat can retreat if it needs to.
Keep the kitten/cat in a room for the first few days, then, gradually, using a series of wooden chocks (or similar), open the door slightly to allow paws and noses to meet. It can then be opened further to allow the kitten/cat in and out, but not the older cat or dog in. We recommend that this should be continued for 14 days.
PMAWS urges all owners to keep their cats indoors.
