Male Domestic Short Hair Cat
- Rescue group:
- Bendigo Animal Welfare and Community Services
- PetRescue ID:
Valentine had a rough start to life and arrived as a very timid kitten. He is still very wary of new people and environments and will take some time for you to earn his trust. He does love his food and this is the way to his heart. At feed time, he can become quite vocal and will weave around your legs.
Valentine enjoys the company of other cats and becomes quite playful, when he can interact with others. He will often meow loudly to get their attention and watch them intently. He would prefer he was homed with another cat to continue to learn from and play with.
Valentine will need gentle and calm handling to continue to gain his trust. A quieter household and a kind and patient person will bring out the best in him.

Interested in adopting?
1. Please complete our online Cat Adoption Application Form www.bawcs.org.au/cat-adoption-application-form/
2. Our Adoption Committee (in consultation with Foster Carer, if applicable) will assess your application against the needs of the cat/kitten(s) you are applying for.
3. If your application is to progress to the next stage, you will be invited to a "Meet & Greet" appointment (at our Huntly North Shelter) where you will get to meet the cat/kitten(s) you are interested in. If the meeting is a success and all parties are happy to proceed, an adoption can take place on the day or if the potential new home is local to Bendigo, we have the option to ‘trial’ first (especially with cats entering into a home where there is an existing cat/cats).
BAWCS takes back any animal that does not work out for whatever reason. We insist that the animal must be returned to us and is not to be transferred to any other party if the adoption doesn't work out, regardless of what time has elapsed. You can adopt with confidence from BAWCS!
