Adoption fees help us to recover some of our costs associated with vet bills (desexing, vaccinations & emergency treatment), flea and worm treatment, food and litter whilst in our care.

 

All cats and kittens will be desexed, microchipped, registered on the NZ Companion Animal Register, have at least their first vaccination and be up to date with flea & worm treatments prior to adoption. 

All cats and kittens adopted from Gutter Kitties are now entitled to 30 days free pet health insurance!

Bella.jpg
Bella

Approx 18 months old

We are looking for a very special family to open up their home and their hearts to our gorgeous wee Bella who is fully incontinent.

Due to having no muscle control in her rear she doesn’t know when she is going to the toilet so she’ll require lots of cleaning up after. A home with minimal carpets or hardwood floors will be ideal for easier upkeep.

On vet advice, her bladder needs to be manually expressed at least twice daily plus she needs regular ‘bum baths’ and her rear shaven to keep the area clean and tidy. We have got her semi-used to having a diaper on for a few hours each day which makes her incontinence more manageable. She is prone to periodic urinary tract infections (UTIs) so will need regular visits to the vet.

Though she is pretty high maintenance, she is a happy, loving kitty who doesn’t know she is any different. She will totally make up for it with her winning personality - she’s the perfect combo of affectionate and playful.

Given the complexities with her care, we are looking for experienced cat parents who will have the time to manage Bella and are committed to giving her the care she needs.

M & M

Approx 8 months old

Marty and Myra are two siblings with a capital M for Mischief. Marty is the more confident of the two and is quite a character. Any chance to explore the neighbours in the next room and they are in there like a shot... mainly to check out if they have any food going spare and nose around their toys. Myra is on the shy side and looks to her brother for confidence. Would suit a fairly quiet home with older children.

Adoption Fee: $300 for the pair

Pippa

Approx 6 months old

Pippa was found on a building site with her mumma and siblings. She was very scared and hissy when she arrived but has now turned into an affectionate purr machine. She loves pats and chin rubs & her face just can't help but make you smile

Sarah.jpg
Sarah

Approx 4.5 years old

Sarah has graduated from The Paw Pad!!! She is mostly what some would call "unadoptable" but we know the perfect new home is out there somewhere!

When Sarah arrived to us, she was untouchable. Friendly, but boy, not one pat would be allowed. I suspect she's been mishandled/manhandled and has a huge issue with being touched!

Well, over the last few months she's learning that she won't be hassled! That her space and feelings are respected, and we are making slow, but real progress! She has a sanity switch of around 3.6543 seconds from her first pat. Then, it's time to walk away.

She loves toys, and gets super excited when anyone goes into the adoption room.

We have a spare crate set up into our adoption room wall, and although the door is pinned open all the time, she is content to stay in her space with her own bed, litter tray, and food. She would be perfect as an indoor cat with someone who wants a companion but is content with the reality that they may never be able to pat her for more than 2 strokes at a time, but also the possibility of Sarah relaxing even further, knowing she's safe, and opening her heart to her new human.

tigger1.jpg
Tigger

Approx 12 years old

6kg hot water bottle looking for his forever home. Tigger is a smooch of a boy who cannot understand why nobody wants him. 12 is just a number and age doesn’t slow him down. He is happy to keep himself busy in the day. At night he loves cuddling on laps while you catch up on your shows. Bedtime is his favourite time, and he tells you all about his day with purr-meows and head bumps. He is clean and tidy, obsessed with catnip and a sucker for Temptations. He just wants a best buddy for life.

L & S

Approx 8 months old

Anyone who adopts Layla and Shelby are in for a treat! This energetic duo are more than happy keeping themselves entertained, chasing and play fighting before flopping down, exhausted for a snooze.

They are cheeky, and loving and while they don't particularly enjoy being picked up (they do tolerate it) they are more than happy to curl up next to you on the sofa, or in bed in the evening.

Layla is a pretty wee thing, with a very knowing look. She's playful, feisty and has the cutest squeak. She loves her paws stroked while she's snoozing.

Shelby is boisterous, and playful, she loves a good rough head scratch. Beware of the tummy trap though!

They are not sisters, and when they first met they didn't really enjoy each others company, but they have built a strong bond and it would be lovely to see them off to a home together.

Their new parents would need to be patient while they settled as they both had a rough start in the world, but we are sure they will come around quickly and slot into your home like they've always been there.

Layla and Shelby would adapt to most homes, but would prefer a home with older, or no children.

Tiggy

Approx 2.5 years old

All about Tiggy – from his previous owner

“Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we are no longer able to keep this beautiful boy, which is breaking our hearts, but we know there is a beautiful home waiting for him out there. We adopted Tiggy through Gutter Kitties in March 2020 and he was a very timid boy when we got him. It took me a lot of time to get him comfortable with me and then we worked on him being comfortable with my husband. I spent the first 2-3 weeks playing with him, feeding him, giving him cuddles when he wanted them and of course treats such as his favourite Dine meat helped settle him and allowed us to bond. Two years on and this boy has grown so much, he is no longer timid, but he does take time to warm up to new people. He does not like storms so will always seek a corner to hide or a human’s arms to seek comfort. One thing he loves is a kiss on the top of his head, if you make the kiss sound he will tilt his head in for a kiss. It’s the cutest thing ever. He is a very gentle, talkative and cuddly boy and will be your best friend, all you have to do is give him time to warm up to you. He will suit a quieter home with an individual, couple, or family. If you’re looking for a playful, cuddly, loving boy, you have found him. He will always hold such a special place in our hearts.”

Robert Jr

Approx 7 months old

Robert junior is the most shy and smallest out of the litter and likes to have a little hiding spot. He does appear sometimes and especially when the cat toys are out to investigate. He is a bit unsure when he is being touched but at times starts to purr. Not a lap cat and not super keen to be carried around yet. He needs a home that is very quiet without young children.

tasha.jpg
Tasha

Approx 7 months old

Tasha is a very affection and playful teenage girl. As soon as you enter the room she comes out for a cuddle and a big purr. She loves to play with you when you bring out the cat toys. She has a slightly shorter tail which doesn't bother her and just adds to her cuteness. She can startle a little with sudden movements and loud noises so a quiet home without small children would be ideal.

kaia.jpg
Kaia

Approx 6 months old

Kaia is a loving and adorable kitten in need of a special home. Kaia has an issue with her stomach valve, which means that she often brings her food up and will need her food mashed or ground into a smooth paste. She will need someone who has the time to pay careful attention to her eating habits and who will be patient with her occasional ‘up chucks’. Kaia craves human company and will be a great companion for someone who is home most of the time and willing to dispense frequent cuddles and kisses. Like all kittens, she is playful and needs to run around like a mad thing sometimes, but Kaia loves to be with her human most of the time and will sit patiently for hours, watching what you do, just waiting for you to sit down so that she can have your lap! Kaia likes to curl up with me in bed at night and sleep on a cushion on my desk during the day while I work. She is the cutest little thing and one of her oddities is that she often growls in her sleep! Kaia will be very much missed when she goes to her new home.

Approx 1.5 years old

Floppy had a litter of kittens who have now grown up. She is a lovely affectionate fluff ball who is still playful at times. She has started to come for short burst of cuddles on the lap but prefers to snooze next to you on the couch. She would be suited in a family with older children and no other cats.

Cosmo is a very sweet young man. He is the first one to greet you at the foster room door and will gently tap your legs when you are walking out as if to say 'hey where are you going?!' He's a curious, affectionate boy and loves his tucker.
