Save a life maybe nine by adopting

WITH some of their ‘nine lives’ already used up, there are more than 50 cats and kittens looking for a loving new home in the Gladstone Region.

Come down to the Friends of RSPCA Gladstone Adoption Centre (opposite NRG Power Station) on Sunday between the hours of 9am and midday and you could just meet your new lifelong companion.

Cat lovers will be able to meet, greet and cuddle-up to some of the lovely felines up for adoption and hopefully take one home, according to Friends of RSPCA Gladstone publicity officer Judy Whicker.

Sunday will be the second Cat Adoption Day hosted by the group this month and follows on from last Sunday’s successful adoption day where eight kittens and one adult cat found new owners.

The group has had to take the drastic measure of hosting two this month in an attempt to try re-home some of the large number of felines currently in their care.

“Sunday’s adoption day was excellent,” Ms Whicker said.

“It certainly does open up our books.”

Ms Whicker said the more cats/kittens adopted out, meant the more they could save from the pound.

She said all the cats/kittens were ready to go; fully immunised, microchipped, de-sexed, socialised and registered with Gladstone Regional Council.

Costs include $150 for a kitten and $90 for an adult cat.
