Cats looking for purr-fect owners
FRIENDS of RSPCA Gladstone will open up its adoption centre tomorrow for cat lovers looking to find a new pet.
The group will host a Cat Adoption Day from 9am-noon at the adoption centre, opposite NRG Gladstone Power Station.
With up to 50 cats and kittens in foster care, the group is hoping to find plenty of loving new homes to help ease their cat numbers.
Friends of RSPCA Gladstone cat foster care co-ordinator Anita Coad said there were still cats out there (in the Gladstone region) having babies although the cat breeding crisis had slowed down a bit.
“We are still getting some babies,” Mrs Coad said.
“We only did two adoptions last week but we had 12 the week before at our adoption day.
“Three of these went to Yeppoon.
“The response was just brilliant.
“Fourteen has been the highest we have done.”
Adoption costs are $100 for an adult cat; $130 for a teenage cat (eight to 12 months); and $150 for a kitten or specialty breed.
