Hi everyone, my name is Lacey

Hello everyone, my name is Lacey, I am the sweetest little lady.

I am on the lookout for my future family.

I have had a full vet check which included a dreaded blood test, and my results came back with flying colours… No health concerns with this spring chicken.

I’ve resided at a couple of homes since finding my way to Lort Smith.

My last permanent home, I lived with a little old lady who loved me greatly. Tho when she was suddenly moved into a nursing home, I was left behind outside by my extended family. I must have had a guardian angel looking out for me, as I soon found myself with a cosy bed, food in my belly again, and someone who showed me love.

A adore having my head rubbed and to be patted, I could sit there all day for pats like these.

A nice snuggly bed, couch or lap to call my own, or all of the above would be fabulous.

A quiet home would suit me best, I have lived with another respectful cat and a dog before. As long as no other furry child comes rushing into my personal space, I could adjust to an extended fur family again. But in saying that, I think deep down me being a single child who receives all the cuddles and pats would work just fine to be honest.

I do like to spend time outside, a Catio/enclosure that has some sunshine would be fabulous, who doesn’t like some sunshine! As long as I am kept safe outside.

My favourite food so far that my carers have found I like are, Felix Wet food, Fancy feast Wet (Savoury Salmon Feast-Classic Pate) and a variety of Dry food.

If you’re looking to add a petite little senior companion into your life, I may just be the one you’re looking for.

If you would like to meet me, please fill in an expression of interest form and a member of our staff will be in touch as to booking a meet with me.


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
