Gus

gus 1

Gus is a little sweetheart. He has absolutely no idea how adorably good looking he is, and has a calm and unassuming personality. Even when he plays he does it quietly and gently. Of his siblings, he’s the one that respectfully hangs back and waits for the others to eat first or grab the new toy first. He’s sweet to the core. Gus has only ever known life with his 2 siblings (Maurice and Aubree) so although he’s fine to be adopted as an only cat, he will need some extra human company while he settles. And at 9 weeks old, he’s still only a baby so would need someone who has the time to be sure he gets the right balance of play time and rest time.

Finding the Perfect Match

  1. Energy Levels
    Is the pet laid back, playful or energetic.  Does it prefer to nap most of the day, or does it require regular interaction (and in the case of a dog, how many times a day will it require walking?) Does this fit with your lifestyle and time availability?
  2. Personality and Temperament
    Is the pet shy, confident, adaptable, fearful, laid back, independent etc?  How would this pet’s personality fit with the dynamic in your household?
  3. Special Needs
    Does the pet have have any special needs (eg. fears, triggers, medical conditions) and how would you manage and accommodate these?
  4. Future Plans
    Cats and Dogs can live up to 20 years.  What are your future plans?  Are you planning to travel, relocate, expand your family etc.
  1. Housing and Council Regulations
    Will the pet live indoors our outdoors? Does it require specific bedding, fencing or enclosures? The regulations for pet ownership differ between councils.  Make sure you are aware of these.
  2. Do you have permission to have a pet?
    If you are renting, do you have landlord permission?
  3. Holidays
    Who will look after your pet when you go on holidays?
  4. Your existing pets?
    Do you have any existing pets and how would they respond to a new addition to the family?
  1. Adoption Fee
    All OAAT pets are vaccinated, desexed and microchipped prior to adoption.   They will also be up to date with all worming and flea treatments.  This is all covered in the adoption fees (which generally range from $200 – $400 depending on the type and age of the animal).

  2. Ongoing costs
    Cats and Dogs can live up to 20 years.  This is 20 years of feeding, vet care, council registration, toys, training, etc.  Does this fit with your budget and finances?

  3. Unexpected Medical Care
    Although we all hope it never happens, pets can get unexpectedly sick.  How would you financially manage a medical emergency?
