About Maisy:

Hi I’m Maisy and I’m a year and half old. I’m not used to the spotlight being on just little old me, so I am very shy when I first meet people, and if I go somewhere new it is very scary for me. But if you sit quietly and talk to me gently, I will come out and make friends once I know it is safe. Noisy, unpredictable little people are very scary to me. I would like a nice quiet home, with wonderful, understanding people who want help a cat get through a traumatic period in life and learn what it is to be a treasured member of the family. I have also had the sniffles so will need to be an inside only cat. I’m currently at RSPCA Qld’s Brisbane Campus at Wacol.

Starts at 60 Pets aims to find homes for beautiful abandoned, lost or donated animals. Do you know someone who would love XXX?

A message from the RSPCA regarding cat adoption:

Please visit the RSPCA to see all of the cats and kittens that we have available for adoption. All adult cats receive a temperament assessment, and our staff will be able to offer advice on the particular cat that you have chosen. It is important to note any recommendations that staff make in regard to a particular cats’ suitability to different home environments, such as those with small children and/or other resident cats. Our cats have been colour coded using our Find Your Feline Friend system to give you an indication of the family type that will suit them best.

Owning a cat is a great experience as they are excellent companions. However, although they are often highly independent and seem self-sufficient, it is important to remember that they do require our care. Before you purchase a cat please ensure that you have thought carefully about the responsibility of cat ownership.

Never buy a cat on impulse – cats can live up to twenty years or more. Owning a cat is a commitment, which should be carefully considered.

The RSPCA recommends that owned cats should be confined to the owner’s property at a minimum from dusk to dawn. This will protect the cat from accidents and fights and provide some protection to wildlife.

Each shelter will require an adoption application form to be filled, and an additional 24-hour cooling off period can be required to give you the opportunity to ensure you have made the right decision and not adopting on impulse. An interview can be arranged with an adoption officer to ensure that the best possible match has been made after this cooling off period.
