Cats this month - November

We've had another great month with a few of our long term cats as well as new arrivals finding (we hope) everlasting happiness. Just before Christmas too when we need all the homes we can find but they have to be purrrfect just like our cats ha ha🐱

Who found homes?

 

Charlie & Lola - this was a wonderful surprise and perfect timing. These two haven't had a bad time, in fact they've had the best foster family any cat could have. However, fosters aren't forever and Charlie & Lola were about to be homeless again when bingo 💕 a wonderful home came up and it's just perfect for them! This made our day, week, year yippeeeeeeeeeeee be happy you lovely cats!

Daniella - She was in foster for less than 36 hours when her foster decided she wasn't prepared to let her go, and so she stayed. From the government kennels to a loving home - it's perfect.

Dolly & Dimple - As expected our little, sweet ones have their forever home. They'll have all the love in the world and a a cat family and kids too and just in time for Christmas when there will be a tree to climb and decorations to destroy!

Dulcie - Such a beautiful girl and a personality to match, as expected there were many interests; however, as we work on a first come first serve basis she's gone to the first couple who saw her and she fits like a glove!

Heather - Foster to foster as she was never officially adopted but she is now YAY - the last of 14 cats we took a few years ago. We can now finally close that chapter. Happy new life Heather -  you are a beautiful cat and will be happy once more!

Winny & Winona - This was a wonderful day when our gorgeous girls were finally adopted. They went through a lot together including health problems (x breeding cats). Now all that is behind them and they can start again. A new home, life and together. Huge thanks to their past fosters who all worked so hard to get them here! You did it 😻😻 yay!

 

Trial adoptions -

 

Bilbo & Balu - they'll go this weekend and we know they'll be given every opportunity to settle and be happy - watch this space. I think they'll settle and enjoy their new parents and life. A happy day for everyone though bitter sweet for their lovely fosters who still have Yudo.

Didi - She too is on trial as we want to be sure she fits with the resident cats. We're pretty confident she will as she loves cats and cat company, but they have to love her too.

Newbies - 

 

Doris's 3 kittens - Doris isn't ready to be a home cat yet,  but we are hopeful that once her kittens leave the nest she'll relax and have more acceptance of people. Two of her kittens are already spoken for. Watch this space for the third little treasure who will be in need of a loving home.

Egbert - Egg for short, what a lovely little kitten he is. He missed the last adoption day but will be there at the next one, available at anytime to be seen of course.

Enzo - He's still a bit scared and hasn't settled as quickly as we had hoped, but he'll get there. He's not aggressive he just needs time. Cats will be cats and we have to accept them and give them whatever we can until they feel happy once again. 

Ewan - He's the most scared, he'll eat from your hand but won't allow you to pick him up. When cats and kittens come from AFCD they are often terrified for some time. I think being caught in a net would be enough to terrify anyone not only a little kitten. Time heals all .............

 

Still looking for homes - 

 

Candice - She's a beauty and she will be a lovely home cat. Loves to be loved and would make anyone smile with her adorable little face and behaviour.

Daisy - she's come leaps and bounds in her foster home and is certainly making up for the lack of attention. She's ready if you are ?

Dexter - He's the friendliest cat, loves attention and all the love he can get. He'd be the perfect family cat as he's so gently.

Marmalade - What a delightful cat, she's a beauty too - all she needs for Christmas is a loving home, oh she deserves just that. Would you like to meet her? 

Pia - She's still rather aloof and likes to keep check on everyone and thing around her but at a distance. She likes the space and all the home comforts and yet she's still not ready to take that final step. Maybe next year ?

Yahtzee - She's such a beautiful cat but even though she will allow her fosters near her, she's still more interested in her cat friend. She is washed, groomed and cleaned daily and loves every minute.

Yudo - He could have joined Bilbo & Balu at our cat adoption day; however, his fosters and I decided he ought to wait a little longer and enjoy time to himself. He is ready to go to a home - we just want the right home. 

Enormous thanks to Deki and Baymax for their help on adoption days - you make us all so welcome. Thanks as always to our tireless volunteers and fosters who make it all happen, without you we simply couldn't do what we do so well! And of course thank you to our adopters who we trust with our precious cats!

See you next month on the 16th of December for our last adoption day of the year. If you'd like to see any of our cats, please contact us asap and we'll make it happen! 

URGENT fosters

🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄
With Christmas nipping at our heels, we need foster homes before and during the holidays. We don't get a day off, however, I try every year to take Christmas day off. I love Christmas with my dogs and cat, a glass or two of wine🥂 and a great feast of fresh vegetables. If our animals are safe and in foster, then I can have Christmas too!

If you are spending the holidays here and can help a cat/s 😻or a dog 🐶please contact me now or fill in a foster form asap www.kirstenszoo.com just let us know how long/short you can help for.
Right now we need help with the below but the list is growing almost daily.

Adoption day

It's the best weather around this time, or is it? I've just seen there's a typhoon floating around OH no not again! Well with that I'd best move on as fast as I can, so what about this month who got lucky, who hit the jackpot and who needs our help. Read on ...

Clyde - adopted by his lovely foster parents who couldn't let him go, if you saw how he is with them you'll understand why. He's in love, adoring eyes watching their every move, it's as if he can't believe his luck!

Clyde


Cludo - we weren't sure what to expect but yipppeeeeeeeeeee he passed his blood test and is off to New Zealand. Everyone is happy with that result I can tell you.

preview


Cognac - the 1st of the 4 greyhounds arrived and is loving everything and one. It has been a long, hard road for the lucky greyhounds who found good homes. I know the 4 we were able to help land the best homes,  we can only hope the others still in Macau are as fortunate.

preview


Kara- we were all feeling sad and happy at the same time as she boarded the plane to San Francisco. She had more fosters than any dog should have but finally, one of those fosters became her permanent family and came back to get her. To all of you who did so much to get her there THANK YOU! Small words for such an enormously well-planned trip. She appears to have settled in almost ridiculously easy and we can only attribute this to her love for her people who she loves.

preview


Rich - greyhound number 4 and the last to arrive here but like the others, he's in seventh heaven. His family wouldn't give up on rescuing a dog from Macau and kudos to you, you got an amazing dog and saved a life too!


Sisi - she'd never even met the dog or persons she was going to live within Dublin. I trusted the family member I know who has rescue dogs herself and after one conversation I knew it was a perfect situation and home for Sisi. She arrived and her foster aunty flew from NY to be at the airport for her arrival, nothing quite like a familiar face! The next thing we knew Sisi was charging around the garden with her new dog friend. I can tell you it was worth the 5+ year wait to see this amazing sight. If I could give every dog such an opportunity life would surely look brighter. Way to go Sisi, it's true every dog does have her day!

Trendy - greyhound number 3 landed and joined her family and of course new dog friends. Another life saved and a happy ending with a wonderful life ahead of her.

preview


Winston- greyhound number 2, happy as are his parents. Together they've started a new chapter in their lives with their new quadruped. A lot of work, determination and stress went into their adoptions with the ultimate result. Welcome to Hong Kong and the best part of your lives ...

preview


Coco - our amazing girl will go on trial in a few days. she and her new family and quadruped are a good fit she'll be staying put. Watch this space ...

Coco

 

- New dogs -

Cherry - after a long month, she had to leave everyone she had ever known including her bff Martin. We tried so hard to keep them together alas we couldn't find a foster able to have them both. He continued to lick her face all the way to the foster home when they had to part company. It was almost as if they knew what was about to happen. Now in foster with a wonderful couple and coping with being in a flat and the lift, the people but the strange noises are unnerving and scary at times. 

Cherry


Darlene  - she's in foster and learning how to live in a flat with people and all that goes with it. Hopefully, she'll be confident enough to go outside and walk on a lead that's when we know she's ready and will come and join our adoption events. She's a sleek, slender gentle looking Sharpei x and she will be looking for a forever home ...

preview


Digby - he's a handsome 10-month-old Lab x and small for his age and mix. Very friendly loves kids and full of life with energy to burn, he'd be a great dog to run with as that's one of his hobbies. The others were eating, wagging his tail and playing. He's healthy, ready to go if the right family comes along.

Digby


Dinky  - she's the cutest little girl who wants nothing more than to sit on your lap or next to you and get all the love and cuddles available. She's happy to go for her walks, she shuffles around taking time to smell the flowers. Such a dear little one who needs to be the love of someone's life and soon.

Dinky


Maple
 - She's a large rambunctious youngster with a zest for life. She needs a person to match her and spend time enjoying the landscape and trails in Hong Kong. She's a delightful dog with a kiss for everyone who crosses her path. To know her is to love her ...

Maple


Martin
  - he's a gentle soul, a real sweetheart as easy as can be. He loves company, kids and it seems cats are no problem either. Sadly his biggest love is his bff Cherry and if it were possible to reunite them it would be the best result ever.

Martin


Rocky
- next months poster boy and oh what a handsome guy he is! He's doing so well living in the city after living in a quieter area until recently. He's mellow with a gentle demeanor who asks little but gives lots.

We have more of course but he's a sneak preview of who needs your help. Come and see us next month on the 11th and 25th at the Peak Cafe or meet the dogs in their foster homes whenever.

Have a great month and thank you for your support, help, and care - see you in November. It will be hard to beat this month's amazing successes but let's give it a go.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A new month, a new venue and new homes - Cats for October

If every month was like October there'd be no cats in need of homes haha - ok I can dream! We had an amazing month and first time adoption day at PAWTNERS proved successful at least with every cat we took there adopted plus more. Singles, pairs and singles who became pairs it was marvelous, amazing phenomenal. 8 weeks old up to a 10-year-old FIV positive cat - we had them and homed them!I'll stop gushing now, for a while anyway.
Huge thanks to Deki for giving us a new place, space and for making us incredibly welcome. We are going to be at PAWTNERS each and every month on the third Sunday of the month for cats.
We'll also be doing puppy training classes too starting this month. Like to know more? email me or send a message through the website.

As always THANK YOU to our adopters, friends, fosters and volunteers - without whom we couldn't do what we do!

 

Aditi & Zabi - as hard as it was for their foster they finally found a home and space to charge around too.

 

 

Becca & Baldric - Having been visited once the family came back and took them home, two children, two cats everyone happy!

Carmel - She was the first to go and to a first time home but oh boy is she the Queen of her castle!

Nik Nak

 

Rolly - This was a lovely start to the day with our FIV cat going to her forever home. We know she's a cuddle bug and her mum wanted the same. Fantastic, the perfect pair!

 

Tilly - Adored by her fosters and she got to stay with them. They adore our cuddly girl and she them - all the attention she missed she is receiving tenfold.

Zelda

 

Newbies -

Candice - she's absolutely gorgeous, to know her is to love her.

Daisy

 

Delilah - and her kittens Dolly & Dimple - the kittens are adorably friendly, we got them young enough to socialise them. They are strikingly beautiful too. Mum is still very scared and thankfully her fosters are giving her all the time she needs to come round.

 

Dexter - wow he's just the absolute best, ridiculously friendly and super cuddly. He'd fit in any home with anyone.

 Dexter

 

Didi - she's as white as snow with her different eye colours quite the beauty and young too.

Doris

 

Dulcie - she's a funny, friendly cat who loves a cuddle and all the attention you can give. Being a tortoiseshell she's probably going to want her own company and yours no other cat! 

Dulcie

 

Most in need - 

Charlie & Lola - they have a little extension until December when the resident cat arrives.

Charlie & Lola

 

Pia - she's a funny girl who loves but from a distance, however, she and the resident cat have mad play sessions both day and night.

Santa Paws

Farewell Stalin / Brooklyn

Mimi and Deborah are missing the friend they knew as Brooklyn, we called him Stalin.


When we got him from a breeder and it was love at first sight for everyone, a large cat with a larger personality. However, he had a serious heart condition and ore .........

The cardiologist said after his health check and an x-ray. ''His abdomen is filled with a dark red fluid, blood and his heart is like a flabby carrier bag''. 

Even on a large amount of expensive medication not forgetting the discomfort and stress of administering it, his days were numbered.


Stalin was forced to breed for years and at the end of his useful breeding life, he was discarded. The breeder lied about his health, his age, about everything and continued to use him knowing she was passing on the same heart condition! DON'T buy from a breeder - you are saying yes to this!
The vet said he had 2 weeks to live, 2 months tops and needless to say we didn't try to home him we counted each day a blessing. 


He had 3 fosters before settling with his last family and friends Mimi the cat adopted from us, and Deborah the dog. They adored him, so much so they and gave up their spot on mum n dads bed to sleep near Brooklyn.

His heart finally gave out on the 11th October and he passed away peacefully in his dad's arms. 


RIP Brooklyn, you brought so much happiness to two and four-legged friends. Your funny quirks and fascination for playing with water and hiding, peeping round doors and boxes will stay with us forever.
