Chickie is purely adorable. Slim and dainty like her sister Poppy, her transition to a kitten who asks for strokes, runs up to you & jumps up to something next to you to seek attention, is proof that she is where she belongs. It would be hard not to love her. She is a fun little girl too, playing with toys and all the other cats in the home.
Chickie was recently placed into another foster home to expose her to a busier lifestyle with more bustle and children, including a typically boisterous toddler, and is managing very well. She has especially taken to one of the children (see pic) so there's no doubt she will give a child plenty of company. Initially shy with a stranger, it does not take her long to come out to say hullo.
Like her siblings, she has a very glossy tabby coat with attractive markings and she will care for it herself as long as you provide the diet.
Chickie is best buds with her brother Tommy if you want two bonded kitties.
Chickie was trapped near the airport with her littermates after an employee noticed their deceased mother on the road. In just a few short weeks she went from being a scared bush kitty to a purring girl bursting with health and loving life. This came about with a diet of very high quality kitten food and a ton of handling & love from a band of kitty-snuggler volunteers who cuddled & played with them every day for several weeks. It was a crash course in Domestication and Loving Humans!
Chickie has grown up with plenty of other cats of all ages, two sizes of cat-savvy dogs and was snuggled a lot by children during her initiation into indoor life. She enjoys company and other pets would be great for her though she's also likely to be perfectly happy with one or more loving humans.
For her safety and your own peace of mind Chickie should be an indoor-only cat, although a secure cat enclosure would be a wonderful bonus for her. But an enriched household (with cat towers, scratchers & plenty of toys), some good window seats & views of outside perhaps with a screen door or window to look through & sniff the breeze, and lots of attention should be adequate.
Located in Yanchep.
Chickie is a superbly healthy kitten who has been sterilised & microchipped and had both her F5 kitten vaccinations. She is up to date with parasite control. No more vet visits til 2019! A lot of attention is given to her researched, top quality diet so she can develop to her fullest potential.
When you see the picture, read the profile & think "This is the one!" I want to hear from you! Please message me with your email address so I can send you an application form. Although it's important for these adoptees to find their forever homes asap, there will be an informal interview process to see if you both match. This is the difference between adopting & buying and it serves the really important purpose of keeping you together for life. All family members will be included in the adoption process. Everyone counts.
1. Message me.
2. I send you an Application form via email.
3. I will phone you.
4. Meet & greet.
5. 2 week (or more) trial adoption.
6. You have a new family member!
The adoption fee shown on each listing mainly covers the cost of the vetwork needed before adoption & it allows rescue continuity. It is seriously much cheaper to adopt from a rescue than to get a "Free to good home" & organise all the vetwork yourself.
Once it's been decided that you will trial your possible family member, you will complete the adoption form, pay the fee & take him/her home to see for sure that the fit is right. The settling in process can take some time or it may be almost instant. If after a while (around 2 weeks) it becomes apparant that the chemistry just isn't there, the animal can be returned for a full refund. Please be aware that this is not a failure for either you or the adoptee. It simply didn't work & there is no blame.
If the adoption goes ahead but some unforseen circumstance rises in the future, near or far, where you must be separated, your pet MUST be returned to PRAAS; not rehomed by yourself. We have rescued that animal & we need to know that he/she is safe for the rest of its life. It may be that you have a wonderful next home to move them to, in which case please let us know.
If the animal is returned to us at this later stage there is no refund.
