Hi everyone, my name is Leia

I’ve become a favourite in the Adoption Centre for my chirpy and friendly nature.

I absolutely adore having human company, and I love when my humans join in on my conversations. I’ve shown I am super affectionate and will always be rubbing up on your legs for attention. I still like to play with some toys and can revert back into a crazy kitten with the right ones!

It would be best that my new humans are experienced cat people who are confident in reading cat body language, as I am a cat who has her limits and will let you know when I need my space. Someone who is committed to understanding me will get to reap the benefits of experiencing what a truly beautiful girl I am.

My home would be one where I am the only animal. I would also be most comfortable in a home without children please.

I’m very food motivated, you can use that for you advantage to encourage me to do things.

I will be foster to adopt to ensure I settle well into my new humble abode!

If you’re looking for a companion to rule your home and chill on the couch with, perhaps I could fill that spot. Please fill out an expression of interest form and I will have my people, contact your people!


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
