Super cute and cuddly black male. Loves to rough up his brothers and hoon around like a idiot. Jokes aside this boy would love you to bits super affectionate. He is 14 weeks.


Karly has been in foster care for some time now. We believe she is ready to step out in the big wide world and meet her new family. She is a cat that is ok with been picked up and enjoys pats but likes to do things on her terms. Once she meets that right family she will need reassurance that she will be loved.


Soft and sweet just like a pair of mittens. Get in touch with TAPT and maybe we can be friends. 


Capri is a grey & white female about a year old. She was trapped as a kitten on a farm. Still a little shy, doesn’t like to be picked up but will come to you for a smooch. Will lie down beside you for pats. Gets on well with other cats & kittens. Will be a very loving cat with a bit of patience & understanding


Harper is a lovey grey tabby girl about a year old. She has a sweet nature but is a little shy with new people at first. She was originally a wild farm kitten and has been with us for approximately 7 months. She prefers a quiet home, Harper likes to be near you but is not a fan of being picked up. She will be at the New Plymouth viewing day this Saturday.


This beautiful tabby girl might be a bit shy at the start but loves her rubs. Fine with other cats and kids but would prefer a quiet home. Wouldn't you? 


Gully is a young male kitten Approximately 4-5 months. He was found roughing it after been dumped up Lucy's Gully. He lets you pick him up and does enjoy loves. Well mannered little man .


I get a little jumpy with noise, but I'm learning to love and cuddle.


This is our beautiful little man, Norton. This cheeky fella is looking for a loving home. 


Oliver is a a male tabby approximately 4 months old. He is an enthusiastic talker who likes to be with people. He hasn’t met any dogs. Oliver isn’t aggressive towards other cats but will sometimes yell at them if he’s feeling like it. This little character would do better in a home with older kids.


This girl is shy and will need a patient home


Rosie is one sassy little lady!

IIona & Hanne

2 beautiful little kitties with special needs. Both kittens have a mild case of Pectus Excavatum. A condition in which the breastbone sinks into the chest. Pectus excavatum is often noticeable shortly after birth and typically worsens during the adolescent growth spurt. It's more common in boys. It may be associated with genetic or connective tissue diseases.

Both have been vet checked and condition considered mild.

Both INCREDIBLY playful and very smootchy. Loving friendly babies... looking for an understanding home with lots of love!


She is a very confident young kitten loves to play lots and run around with her siblings. She is 4-5 months of age and will need a home that will give her time to adapt.


She's a beautiful young 4-5 month old kitten. She's come from a scared mum so is a little scared and shy herself. Given time and patience she will adapt wonderfully in a new home. How can you not fall in love with that sweet face.


Female about 1 to 3 yrs old. Very shy but loves rubs, will take a kind patient person to bring her out of her shell. Can you be that person. No children or dogs please.


The name says it all... Preferably needs to be the only animal in the home, but she will warm up to you!


Blue is a cute little dude with a big heart and enjoys toys & play time. He's naturally shy, but is starting to come out of his shell & once he's used to you he won't want to leave you side.


Male about 5 months old. Very shy boy who was dumped at my house... he is very playful now, and a real purr machine but will take time to adjust to his new home, a quiet home with a patient family.


Teddy is a handsome male tabby. Approximately 4 months old. He is playful but a bit shy. He has never met a dog but gets along well with other cats. He may take some time to settle into a new home but would be wonderful addition to any family.

Everyone say hello to Smartie. She was a very malnourished stray found with 3 kittens that were about 12 weeks old. Unfortunately we didn't know she was already pregnant with a second litter. They were born premature and only 1 survived. She had to have lots if veterinary care but is now doing well but needs lots of TLC. We estimate her to be about 12-16 months old

Is a sweet girl, and with a loving family will be a loyal loving friend. Will need a quieter, more patient home.
