Adopting a cat or kitten

Congratulations on deciding to adopt an adult cat or kitten. We Know Pets in partnership with the  Animal Welfare League NSW (AWL) are pleased to continue our 'New Beginnings' program. Together we have found caring new homes for not only rescue kittens but for older cats as well. Despite having just completed a brand new cattery, the AWL continues to take in surrendered and abandoned cats  and unwanted litters of kittens. Cats can be sexually mature at just 5 months of age. It is important that kittens are de sexed early to prevent unwanted litters.

To assist with high populations at the cattery, we offer adoptions in store. These kittens have been in temporary foster care to socialise & acclimatise them to everyday experiences before they find their new home!  Studies show that kittens exposed to these stimuli make well rounded pets & we agree! If you are interested in becoming a foster carer, learn more here


All of our rescue kittens have: 


Adopting a Rescue Kitten Can be a Rewarding Experience!
  • Up-to-date vaccinations
  • Up-to-date worming & flea control
  • Been de sexed
  • Been microchipped
  • Been vet checked


If you have recently adopted a kitten, we recommend reading our Pet Care Guide on Kittens.

How do I adopt a cat or kitten?

It is important to us that everyone is happy when choosing a new companion! If you are choosing a new family pet, we recommend that you bring all of the family with you.

Allow plenty of time so that you do not rush, talk to everyone involved about the ongoing responsibilities involved (our staff can advise you on this).

Our staff have been taking care of the kittens & know their different personalities. They are always happy to tell you about each individual kitten. Staff are also able to talk to you about the care of your new kitten as responsible pet ownership is important to us too.

Our Guarantee

All kittens have a health guarantee & a 7 day cooling off period.

What do I need

There will be some change of ownership paperwork to complete before you leave. Staff will also provide you with:

  • Pet care guide for your new kitten
  • Information on when the next vaccinations & parasite control are due.
  • Tips for settling in when you get home
  • Advise on items you will need for your new kitten such as food, bedding, scratching post, toys etc. You will find some useful information on selecting the best cat toys  & keeping cats indoors on previous Blogs
  • Adoption fee's are $250 to cover the cost of desexing, vaccinating & parasite control.
