PAW-MATE CLUB – Spend New Year with a cool cat

December 26, 2015

With Christmas finished for another year, many of us are beginning to turn our attention to the year ahead.

For some of our too cool for school long term adult cats, they are looking for their forever home to ring in the New Year. Could you be the perfect match they are looking for?

Muffin – ID 995442

LDH_longterm adoption_MuffinMuffin is a beautiful cat with a sweet, loving nature. With her easy going temperament it is hard to believe that she has been available for adoption for 86 days.

Sadly, five year-old Muffin’s time before arriving at the Home’s North Melbourne shelter wasn’t easy. Arriving with a significant burn to her back, Muffin needed treatment from the Home’s shelter medicine department and time out with a foster carer to allow enough time for her injury to heal.

Now fully recovered, Muffin is looking for a quiet home with an owner who is happy to give out chin rubs and allow this connoisseur of comfort explore her surroundings.

In return you’ll get a loving, loyal and gentle companion whose personality will shine through.

You can watch Muffin in the fur in the video below or you can read more about her journey here.



LDH_longterm adoption_NekoNeko – ID 985144

An attention seeker through and through, Neko is a sweet cat with more than enough love to share with those around her. Despite her affectionate nature, four year-old Neko has been looking for her perfect partner for 67 days.

Neko loves company and often enjoys being cuddled by those around her – especially if pats and chin rubs are on offer as well. A real people cat, this friendly feline will quickly win over those around her with her loud purr and darling nature.




Billie Barnacle – ID 998983

LDH_longterm adoption_BillieBillie Barnacle is a shy cat who can be a little reserved when meeting people for the first time. However, once she gets to know you, she is a friendly and affectionate cat who loves being around her nearest and dearest.

Looking for her ideal home for 89 days, this four year-old gentle cat will suit a quite home with an owner who understands she will be shy until she finds her paws and makes friends. Billie Barnacle loves being patted and relishes in being scratched behind the ears. With some time and patience, Billie will thrive in her new home with a loving family.
