Hi everyone, my name is Buzz

Hi all,

They don’t call me Buzz for nothing, cos I simply love buzzin’ around. I am extremely cheeky, super confident and sometimes get over stimulated when I play. I don’t have a mean bone in my body I just find playtime irresistible, sometimes giving little nips or wacks, never nasty though. For this reason it’s best I don’t live with small children as I don’t think they’ll understand where I’m coming from. It has been discovered that I don’t like other cats, therefore I would prefer to just live with my human family. I need to be brushed on a regular basis to keep my gorgeous locks from getting matted. If you would love to add a fun loving bloke to your family please do an online expression of interest, I’ll spice up your life!


Adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
