Hi everyone, my name is Eddie

If we could give Eddie a 5 star rating we would!

This big handsome kitty is a super smooch who just wants to be by your side. He has a wonderful personality and we just know he is going to make someone very happy when he is adopted.

Eddie has been in foster recently and his carer has nothing but great things to say about him. He loves climbing onto your lap and being carried around like a baby (he obviously  doesn’t  know his own size). Although he can be quite lazy at times he also enjoys chasing balls and playing with toys on a rope.

Our big love bug does have kidney disease and is FIV positive, so his new family will need to take him to regular vet checks and feed him a special diet which he happily devours.  The staff are happy to answer any questions you may have about this.

Eddie will be foster to adopt as he has an upcoming dental booked that Lort Smith will be covering the costs of.

To meet our friendly 5 star feline, please fill in an expression of interest form.


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
