CatRescue 901 is a small team of volunteers who are dedicated to helping cats in need in pounds and the community. We do not receive any funding and are only able to continue our vital rescue work thanks to the generosity of the community. Donations over $2 are tax deductible. Thank you for your support.
Cami is a barrel of fun. She is super curious – loves to know what’s going on and to be involved with her people whatever the activity, be that doing the laundry, the washing up, sweeping, playing video games, or homework. Cami is also very energetic when playing, and has a high prey-drive – she loves to chase a wand-style toy through a card box maze or up and down a cat tower.
Cami thrives in a ‘catified’ environment. She needs places to sit up high where she can observe her territory as she gets her security from knowing her environment (changing homes is tough on her – she takes a few weeks to settle in and get comfortable). She is also very strong willed and determined, and doesn’t like being told what to do, but with encouragement she can be convinced! This behaviour is easy to manage – if you want her to go/be somewhere, positive direction with a laser pointer always works (rather than picking her up, chucking her in a room, then blocking the door with your foot to stop her getting out before the door is closed).
She gets on well with other cats, keeping clear of those who like personal space, and playing with other kittens. Dogs and house rabbits are no problem for Cami – she has previously live happily with both species.
Elizabeth is one of the most people oriented cats on the planet. Physical touch is her love language: Cuddles, head scratches, belly rubs, having her long fur brushed – if its hands on, she’s there, absolutely adoring the attention. She is also incredibly gentle, so no scratches and bites. Elizabeth has an acute sense of hearing for the sound of the cat-toy draw, seemingly appearing out of nowhere when it’s opened to get a wand style cat toy out for play-time. Play hunting with her people is one of her favourite ways to burn her kitten energy, and she will sometimes bring you toys when she’s keen for interactive play.
Louis is a very curious kitten with a sunny deposition. He loves exploring every nook and cranny he can find in the house, and makes his fun out of almost anything. Rolling around in a bucket is the current favourite activity, alongside playing in bowls of water. This purry boy’s friendly personality leads him to start and end his day with snuggles and nose kisses from his foster carers. Louis also connects well with other cats, regularly rubbing up against and nose kissing the adult cats he lives with – He’s even managed to convince 15 year old Mac (one of his foster carer’s cats) to wrestle like a kitten again.
Louis is quite standoffish to begin with, but will settle in after a few days once given time to get comfortable in his new environment. Loud noises, like fireworks and shouting, are quite scary for Louis, and this needs to be kept in mind for his safety.

As these three have bonded so well, we would prefer them to go to a home together.
Their adoption fee is $630.
