About Us:

Hello - we are Oliver and Rex!

We came into WAG's care together, and that's how we are most comfortable, with each other. We are recent arrivals at WAG so the staff are still getting to know us and our needs better. We hope we don't have to wait long at the shelter before we are adopted, its kind of loud and busy here but we have been slowly coming out of our shells and enjoy spending time with the staff and volunteers. We have moved abodes a couple of times recently, so hope that our next move will be our last and we can really relax and make ourselves comfortable!

Oliver is the older and more confident of the pair, from day 1 he has been keen to come and say hi to visitors and check things out. Rex is the younger and shyer of the two who was recently neutered and so is focusing on recovering from that first of all! Oliver his BFF is a great role model and the pair are hoping to be able to stay together.

These gents were seen by the wonderful Vet team at Eagleview for their first checkups, vaccines and Rex's neuter surgery. They were unsure about the whole thing but were both brave and great little patients. There’s been a lot of changes in their lives recently and so these beautiful boys would very much like to be adopted by people who understand that time and patience, combined with love and respect is very important for them.

They hope they are able to find a home together soon! Please keep an eye on their profile for updates as we all get to know each other better, or if you feel that you can offer them the home they are looking for, what are you waiting for? Scroll down and fill out an application form today as the first step in the adoption process!

Our Purrrfect Match

  • will be ready for a 10+ year commitment, with consideration of additional costs for two cats.
  • have lots of patience whilst we learn to feel comfortable with our new family.
  • someone who understands that we might not want to cuddled or be touched all the time.
  • will provide lots of enrichment, scratching towers, toys, catio etc.
  • will keep our health in mind and take us into the vet for yearly checkups.
  • understand that Rex is a youngster with not much known about Oliver either, so our personalities may change over time!
  • will keep us safe and happy, forever.

My Story:

We became residents at WAG when our previous guardians were no longer able to take care of us. Please consider adopting a pair and giving us the second chance we deserve, together!

Shyer cats and bonded pairs usually have a long stay at the shelter, donating to their care helps WAG always ensure that we have a spot for special kitties like these. If you can't adopt, please consider donating or even becoming a foster home whilst they wait!

Medical Needs: I am currently on steroids and a daily cleaning medication along with a topical cream to help my skin condition that is on my side and my mouth. I could probably do with losing a few pounds too....

About Me:

Hi I'm Pumpkin! I've found myself at the shelter after an ongoing health issue just wasn't getting better even after a lot of veterinary medical treatment. For the past couple of years I have been having trouble believed to be caused by something called 'Eosinophilic Granuloma Complex'. This is an inflammatory condition caused by an inappropriate immune response that can have a variety of causes and symptoms. In my case I have a large ulcer on my upper lip and a large legion on my side being treated with steroids, along side daily cleanings with a prescription wash followed by some special cream. I am settling into WAG well and am such a good patient! I am super friendly, loveable and my favourite things are getting lots of cuddles, being brushed and I even purr whilst the staff are cleaning my sore wounds. I love making biscuits and I love eating biscuits even more. I'm not too mobile right now but I'm enjoying exploring the cattery at WAG and playing with all of the toys. Human company is  the best, but I can often be found taking an afternoon nap in my soft bed and have been excellent with my litter box habits. I am very grateful to the team at Pemberton Vet who have looked after me for a while now, I will be monitored and taken to a recheck in a few weeks. Fingers crossed I will be feeling better then and they will be proud of me for my progress.

I really am the best boy, I know its true as I'm told that everyday, as well as how handsome I am. Will I charm my way into your heart and home too?

Keep an eye on my profile as the team learn more about me and my ideal home, as well as any health updates when we have them. If you feel you could give me a calm, warm and safe home to spend my days whilst keeping my health as top priority then please fill out an adoption form below.....

My Purrrfect Match:

- will be proactive with my health and give me all the love and care I need for all my years

- will continue my health plan and keep me on the medications prescribed by my vet, with any extra checkups as required/ recommended, this may include prescription food in the future too

- will be patient while I transition into my new home with my new family, I have had a lot of changes recently and I will need time to settle in. I would like a calm home where I can really relax and rest up.

- will provide lots of enrichment, scratching towers, toys, catio if deemed appropriate etc.

- will keep me safe and happy, forever!

My Story:

I came to WAG when my chronic health condition was not getting better with treatment and I needed some extra care and consistency to try and heal me for good. My loving guardian knew that WAG would get me the help I so needed to recover and then be able to find me an environment to thrive and stay healthy in the future.

Cats like me with ongoing health concerns requiring lots of medication and rechecks often spend longer awaiting adoption which can require lots of resources. But, thanks to donations to WAG's Critical Care Program special cases like mine can be taken on to offer us a second chance at health and happiness. Please consider donating to their fund if you are in a position to do so!

Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Gender: Female
Age: Approx. 12+ Years Old
Size: XL

Energy Level: Currently low, but I am just settling in after a big transition
Litter trained? Yes
Kids? Older kids possibly, but I am looking for a calm, QUIET home

About Me:

Hi I'm Tux! 

I've found myself at the shelter in my golden years and am looking for a retirement home where I will be doted on and cared for forever. I'm around 12 years old and was very well loved by my pet parent but sadly they needed some assistance when their own health declined. As you can see, I do need to work on my own health too as I am a chonky girl who is on a mission to loose some of these extra pounds! I settled in well at WAG and made lots of new friends but I'm now in a wonderful foster home where I am getting lots of TLC. I love: naps, gentle brushing, food, chin rubs and more naps. I have a few cosy beds and have been trying each one out! I love it here, its much quieter than the shelter and I adore spending time with my foster mom all day as she works from home on the computer next to me. I have been getting monthly Solensia shots to help me with my mobility as my joints are sore, it seems to be working and I'm currently on prescription vet food designed to provide all that is needed for an older gal like me. Although if you ask me, they are being a little strict with my portion control around here.....

Guess what? Shout out to the generous folks at @Petfinder Foundation for awarding WAG with the Senior Pet Grant for little old me! This grant is designed to help alleviate some of the costs that can be associated with adopting a more senior pet. I've been lucky to receive $1000 which will help to cover a variety of costs, including medication and food expenses, for my future adopters. This is an amazing bonus for whoever is lucky enough to adopt me!!
