Rescue cat for adoption in South Brisbane: Hi! My name is Artie, but I may remind you of Puss in Boots with my ginger colour and my big cute eyes.

I’m about 1 year old, and quite shy at first, I’m very good at finding hiding places when I’m scared. I am so gentle though that no matter how scared I was I would never hurt anyone.

When I get used to people, I am quite the opposite. I love to be around my family, to come up for rubs, be picked up for cuddles and sit next to them/be around them while they go about their day and night. I’ve just learned about human laps, and I like them!

I am more relaxed than playful, but I do have a select few toys I love to chase around.

I would be perfect with an older couple or single person looking for a loving/loyal companion who will always be by your side. I’m sure I could get used to a family. I do get startled with other more active pets, but I would love a single companion with the right personality who I’m sure would bring me out of my shell even more.

Adoption Process

Our adoption fee includes a veterinary health check, vaccinations, microchip and spay/neuter, as required. Our kittens, adult cats, puppies and adult dogs are covered by a 30 day “settling in period.” If you don’t believe the pet you chose is suitable, he or she may be returned to us and your adoption fee will be refunded in full. Existing health conditions are addressed at the time of the initial veterinary consultation and declared in the “medical notes” on their individual listing.

During the “settling in period” we offer assurance to address any health concerns, pre-existing or otherwise, provided they are brought to our attention within 30 days from the date of adoption. This excludes any illness or injury is deemed accidental or deliberate. In the former instance, we will recommend you make an appointment with one of our participating vets for a consultation. Should you choose to use a vet of your own choice, we will not be responsible for the reimbursement of your vet fees.

Applicants wanting to adopt a kitten less than 20 weeks of age must be located within a reasonable proximity to one of our participating Brisbane vets.

Please note that we do not freight our kittens, adult cats, puppies or adult dogs.

Adoption applications can be completed on-line at where you’ll find the appropriate links (to the forms) on our home page.
