Take the kids out to search for ones that lay flat and are generally round or oblong in shape. If you don’t live near water, you should be able to get some from your local garden supply store.

Gorgeous cat to be "rehomed" after lockdown.

Jordan from Tauranga City

I have been caring for this cat for several months.
I've had no luck in locating an owner after advertising him online, leaflet dropping around my neighbourhood, and with him wearing an SPCA collar with my contact details. He barely leaves our property, so I am confident he does not have an owner. As we are renters and leaving Tauranga at the end of the year, we are not able to "adopt" him.

Although timid initially, he is incredibly smoochy once he trusts you. He has a great personality and is a real chatterbox. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a member of their family.

He is 2-4 years old and desexed. We have vaccinated him, deflead and dewormed him and before rehoming, we will get him microchipped and get him a full vet check.

Ideally looking for an individual or couple who are homeowners and can demonstrate they will care for him properly. I look forward to finding his forever home he so very much deserves ❤️
