Hamilton location

Observant and curious will head butt when you reach out to her. Loves being patted and loved but can be a bit nippy when excited from the attention she gets. Home without children. Other cats fine. Long term stray giving birth. Didnt take long for this girl to revert back to her lovely friendly self.

Daisy is desexed, vaccinated, microhipped with NZ Companion Animal Register and up to date with flea and worm treatments. 

Only $80 to adopt. We thought if we were to lower the adoption fee a tad it might help find these cats homes for Christmas which means we can help others.

Please phone her foster mum Lynne on 027 274 5877.
