Hi everyone, my name is Fava

I can be wary meeting new people for the first time, but underneath my shyness is a very sweet boy who loves to purr and lap up some attention. I’m looking for a gentle and patient home who can go slow with me while I settle in. Once I’ve gotten to know you – I’ll show you my playful kitten side!

I could go to a home with another friendly cat, as I have shown that this helps boost my confidence. However, this is not a requirement and I would be happy to be a single cat, too.

Unfortunately children worry me, so I’d be best suited to an adults only home where the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet. Also due to my timid nature, I would suit being an indoors-only cat.

I love playing with string toys, laser pointers and ping pong balls, and one of my favourite things is sitting right at the top of the cat tower.

If you have space in your home for a sweetie like me, please submit an expression of interest form below.

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
