NEWS: Chill with a Cool Cat at Christmas

December 18, 2015

Top Cat, Garfield and Felix the Cat – these are just some of the cats who are too cool for school. Cats quite simply the epitome of cool; they’re specialists at finding the coolest spots to sit and watch the world go by and do so with quite conviction that comes with being a cool cat.

And while we know how cool cats are, many of our adoption cats have been waiting for months for their chance to go to their new fabulous homes! As a result our North Melbourne and Campaspe shelters are bursting at the seams with cats and kittens looking for their new homes this Christmas.

With temperatures rising this weekend, we’re calling on the potential cat owners of Victoria to take a leaf out of a cats too-cool-for-school book and learn their special ways this festive season!

Adopt your chill-out companion today!

Adopt from December 19 to January 3 and for a cool $47.50 for cats and $85 for kittens under six months, you could have a new addition to your family these holidays.  Each cat comes fully health checked, desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed – all costing in excess of $300 per cat!

You can view all our festive felines here and at

To receive the discount, you’ll need to complete our Pet Licence test at our shelter or online.
