  1. Sorry not a dog post but have not really found a forum for cats that has updated information.  I have a family wanting to rescue a ragdoll or x if possible definitely male. They have been searching for a few months and found nothing. This family recently had to have their 16 recuse cat put down. They are also open to a cat with two different colored eyes - usually white in color (they have a soft spot for blue)


    They are a lovely family wanting a recuse before going to a breeder.


    ... Hard request but just wanted to put it out there. .....


    Thanks all.

  2. The children are late primary school and knowing the family they are very gentle. Anyway I thought I would ask here first as the family had been looking on gumtree so I gave them some education :-). At the end of the day they might end up buying from gumtree if they can't find a rescue one. I can only do so much to help.  I have a rescue cat 15 years old and a rescue dog 6 years and the children are so gentle with ours.

  3. Hi all, I have a friend who is looking to add two puppy's to their family. They are looking for low shedding and definitely want puppy's and small in size. They are looking for Maltese, poodles x's and open to anything but must be low shedding.

    They are a wonderful family and have three children one who has just been through cancer. They would love to do rescue but have not had much luck. If anyone knows any puppy's currently in rescue needing homes pls let me know. The family are based in Sydney.


    Thanks all.



  4. Hi all,

    I have been taking my daughter to Westmead Children's hospital on and off since January. We have found a cat living in the car park near the ticket machine. He/she is pretty much there all the time either asleep in the garden on hanging around the bin meowing. He is scared and will always be just out of arms reach if you try to pat him. I don't believe he is feral just scared and probably has not had much human contact.

    I don't live close enough to go each day but was wondering if anyone has any contacts that might be able to help him ? It would great to see him living in a warm house and getting food.

    Any advice would be appreciated. :-)


  5. when I worked in sydney rescue, we had a guy we refered people too, he would catch the possum, mend the roof and install a possum box in nearby tree , he charged a fee , but people were always happy with him , I can see if I still have the number if you like

    Thanks for all the suggestions !!!!

    Can you please send the details to me if you can find them. I think that would be the way to go for us !!

    Thanks again all !

  6. Sorry I know this is a dog forum but we don't know where else to go and thought someone might be able to point us in the right direction.

    We have a possum living in the roof and would like to relocate it's bedroom to a tree in our yard. We would be happy to get it to live in a nest box in our large tree. We do have a trap and are hoping to trap it so we can fix where it's getting in the roof.

    Can anyone suggest anyone that could help us with the nest box and maybe some tips to help make the move not too stressful.


    Oh we are in Sydney.

  7. Thanks poodlefan, I have emailed them.

    With children and a cat, a pup might be the go. ELIRE (Newcastle) have two litters due in July. They have a puppy listing on the breed page for Mini P's.

    Having never had much to do with this breed why would a pup be better than a young adult ? Would just like to pass on as much info as I can :hug:


  8. I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for a good breeder in Sydney or surrounds.

    Our friends have decided on the miniature poodle for their family. They have done a lot of research and have had dogs in the past.

    They love the brown colouring ... and would love a female up to about 4 years. Preference would be young adult but this is proving to be hard to find.

    They have two children 5 and 8 and a moggy. Can anyone point me in the right direction ??? (they have been keeping their eyes on the pound with no luck)

    Thanks so much.

  9. Sorry I can't, I dont use them. I *used* to run a mobile salon in the area but I no longer have the business. What did you want done, and is it mobile or a salon you want?

    It's for a friend's little maltese x ... and she would be happy with a salon.
