Many people find that a kitten is not suitable for their lifestyle or situation. They may not want to go through all the stages of raising a small kitten before they can have a companion cat to come home to nor may they want a small, fast, fun loving clown of a kitten which may be dangerous underfoot, especially for elderly people.
We may from time to time have older Australian Mist cats looking for good loving homes. These cats may not have been suitable for breeding or it may be that we no longer require their bloodlines for our breeding program but they would make the most amazing companion cat. Ages may range from under 1 year up to 5 years.
With ex-breeding cats we could desex them and put them away from our breeding stock and give them our attention or naturally the better choice is to desex them and find them a loving home where they will get all the individual attention they desire. We feel that the second choice is by far the best and a better repayment for the work they have done for us.
Obviously it can take a special home to take a ex-stud cat who may still be spraying but we have found people who want an outside cat or a farm cat for a rural property and will give our ex-studs a home. It is often the case though that studs often stop spraying when desexed especially if we put them on a course of hormones which reduces or stops their need to spray. These cats should always go to a home without other cats as territorial instincts may cause them to start spraying again.
On rare occasions we do have Mists that come back to us and need to be re-homed.
If an older cat is for you and you would like to make a home for one of the cats listed below please contact us by e-mail. We usually ask that people pay to cover our vet fees for the costs of desexing, vaccinations & Microchipping with a lifetime subscription. All our cats come desexed, vaccinationed, wormed and flead up to date and come with some of our holisitic dry food and kitty litter so there is nothing more to spend. Depending on the age of the individual fur baby the normal cost for a teenager - adult is around $250 - $450.
