Name: Tessa

Breed: DSH
Born: 1st October 2016
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee: $150.00 
BIN: 0000292198263

About: Sadly Tessa’s family has to move overseas for work and are unable to take her with them so she is now at Yaps and is looking for a new family to share her life with as an only cat.
This is what her previous owners have to say about her

Tess/Tessa is a lovely 5 ½ year old inside cat and great company.
She has beautiful markings and lovely green eyes. Tess just eats dry food, so no mess! And her favourite treat is Dine paste. She is very clean and neat. 
Even though she’s no longer a kitten, Tess just LOVES to play and particularly enjoys fluffy (tail-like) toys on a stick, as well as a laser pointer. She loves to sit on cardboard and will use it instead of a scratching post.
Tess loves to be brushed but luckily doesn’t shed very much hair at all. She is a true Cairns local and will sunbake on even the hottest days! Tess doesn’t like to be picked up but loves cuddles in bed (especially scratches on her neck and behind the ears) and will sleep on top of you if you let her!

Name: Misty

Breed: DSH
Born: 20th December 2013
Sex:  Female
Adoption Fee: $125.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About:  This dear girl was left in a house when the people moved on.  On her vet check up appointment it was discovered that she had to have dental work done which we did. She was still not well and walking with a titled head and sometimes even fell over so it was back to the vet where we found she had a middle ear infection and a ruptured ear drum. After many weeks of treatment she is as good as gold!!! 
Misty is not your cuddly lap cat, she has a mind of her own and is always happy for a scratch and pat but then she is off to do her own thing.

Name: Boo

Breed: DSH
Born: 6th July 2015
Sex:  Male
Adoption Fee: $150.00
BIN: 0000292198263

About: Boo is out on foster and this is what his foster carer has to say about him.
If you would like to meet Boo please fill in the pre adoption questionnaire and we will arrange for you to meet him at the foster carers place.

An affectionate boy with a beautiful melodious meow who purrs easily.  He welcomes visitors in and escorts them to the gate when they leave. If you’re gardening, he’ll be right at your side sniffing the weeds as you pull them out, However, Boo is a homebody. He ventures outside but never far or for long on his own. He prefers to sit beside you wherever you are and he’ll stay for ages. If you’re on the computer, he’s at your feet. If you’re watching TV, he’s on the chair arm.
Boo seems to be overcoming a traumatic past. Occasionally, if approached quickly, he’ll get scared and cow down. Then he likes to sniff your hand first and remember who you are.  When he knows you, this will seldom happen, and he’ll flop on his side on your feet and wriggle with joy, purring like a tractor when you pet him.
Boo prefers not to be picked up. He likes to come to you. He’s very obedient. If you call him – even in the middle of the night – he’ll come.  Boo prefers a quiet home, preferably no  children, or other cats as they make him nervous.   He’s not shown any fear of neighbourhood dogs, although I haven’t a dog in my home, he’s reacted well with visitors’ dogs. And he stands guard on the driveway when dogs pass.
For a largish cat Boo has a small appetite.
