Hi everyone, my name is Jerry
If you didn’t get the Seinfeld reference, that’s okay, I am basically looking for a new home – could it be with you?
I am a little shy to begin with, but I settle very quickly and if you give me a chance, before you know it I’ll be so comfortable it will be like I’ve been a part of your household forever.
As I am still quite young, I have a lot of energy and would benefit from a home where I am indoors only and provided with a lot of enrichment and play time. It would be best I was the only animal of the household and that I didn’t share with young children. I’m quite an affectionate boy and once I’m done playing, I love settling down beside you for a nap.
I have a medical disclaimer for a kink I have in my tail. This is not currently causing me any pain or ongoing issues, but sometimes I am funny about my tail being touched too much.

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
