We are looking for a wonderful family for Beautiful Olivia.


Olivia's babies and her foster baby are heading off to their new homes this week and we would hope that Olivia can as well.


She has been a A+ mum and deserves a A+ home. She has lived with other cats but can get grumpy with some. She is fine with older kids, the under 3yrs can be a bit full on for her. Olivia loves cuddles and pats and we think she may even enjoy the odd hunt.


She is estimated at around 2 years old. She is not used to dogs.


Olivia is desexed, has had her first vaccination, second vaccination paid for at our vets, she is microchipped with NZ Animal Companion Register, update to date with flea & worm treatments and comes with 30days free pet insurance. We will also give you a bag of food for her. 


Olivia is located in Cambridge and if those stunning eyes have captured you than please phone 027 649 9088.

Meet Daisy, this beauty is approximately 2 years old.


She was considered a wild cat and came into care with her two stunning kittens. Within days our cat whispers had her cuddling them and eating out of their hands. 


Daisy gets on well with other cats and we feel will adapt to most things thrown at her. She has a medium coat which will require grooming. 


Daisy has been desexed, had her first vaccination, her second vaccination is all paid for at our Hamilton Vets. Daisy has been microchipped which is registered on the NZ Companion Animal Register and up to date with flea & worm treatments, she comes with 30days free pet insurance (conditions apply). Daisy is $150.00 to adopt.

Daisy is located in Hamilton. 

Please phone her foster mum Lynne on 027 274 5877.
