Nearly 100 felines are hoping to find loving homes as Sydney’s RSPCA shelter waives its adoption fees for this weekend only.
Due to an extremely high volume of cats and kittens, the shelter is struggling to cope with the number of cats in care after an especially busy kitten season.
All the RSPCA cats and kittens are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea treated and wormed.
So far, since kitten season began in September, 167 cats and 637 kittens have been rehoused by the Sydney shelter alone.
“While there are 91 cats currently at the shelter, there are another 187 kittens in foster care and more come through our doors every day,” Sydney shelter Manager Donna Hough said.
“Each cat is unique and has their own special personality,” said Ms Hough. “Whether someone is looking for a real cuddle bug or a more independent cat, we’re sure to have one to suit anyone’s lifestyle.”
All standard adoption processes will take place to ensure the cat is the right match for the new home and information about health care will be provided.
