ADOPTION PROMOTION: Chill out with a Cool Cat

December 12, 2014

Connoisseurs of comfort, cats are quite simply the epitome of cool. They’re specialists at sourcing out the coolest spots to nonchalantly watch the world go by and do so with the quiet conviction that can only come from being a Cool Cat.

And with temperatures on the rise, we’re encouraging you to take a leaf out of their too- cool-for-school book and learn the ways of the cat!

Visit our North Melbourne and Echuca shelters from now until December 31, 2014 and receive 50 per cent off the adoption fee of all cats aged 6-months and over!

Owner of two hip cats herself our Cat Shelter Manager Karina Bailey wisely imparted: “To live like a cat, you need to live with a cat! Cats teach us so much about the value of slowing down, taking it easy and even stopping for a moment for quiet contemplation.”

Ms Bailey said the summer months are typically busy for shelters, with a spike in incoming cats and kittens due to increased breeding and warmer weather.

“We currently have so many adult cats available for adoption with many more waiting to come through,” she said.

“We really need to find these Cool Cats a forever home to call their own and we cannot do this without your help!”

Adopt your chill-out companion today!

For a cool $47.50 your adopted cat comes fully health checked, vaccinated, wormed, desexed and microchipped — services and treatments all valued at over $300.

If renting you will need to provide a Rental Agreement showing you are approved to keep a pet at home.

Existing pet owners are encouraged to check their council regulations on the number of cats they can own per household, as some councils require permits for households with two or more cats.
