|Rescue Me ID: 17-03-23-00242Dukey (male)|
Dukey (7 years old) has the lovely trait of a Ragdoll where he goes kind of limp and snuggly when you pick him up. He loves to cuddle on the couch and if you let him, he likes to sleep on the bed. He also plays fetch. Although Ragdoll's like to stay inside, he needs a backyard. He doesn't like to poo in his kitty litter, he will usually only wee in there and poos next to the litter. We live in an apartment and although we have outdoor area there is not enough dirt. We rehoused him to a couple with no pets and a backyard and they let him out each morning and everything was perfect, except after a couple of months the man's childhood asthma had returned and was getting worse and worse. I have a baby, soon to be a toddler and an cat that poos on the floor, which doesn't mix. We also want more kids so my husband used to be able to pick it up for me but if I'm pregnant I won't be able to. We have had a behaviour therapist and 2 vets try to help. Some of the things we tried work temporarily. His ideal home would be a quieter kind of home, with a backyard and definitely no other cat. He has never been exposed to a dog, but what I know of him I would guess he would not be okay with them either. He is fine to be left during the day. If you live with Dukey, you will never feel lonely, he is a love cat! (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Australia|
Cats can make good pets in Australia if they match your IifestyIe. Domestic Cats have been intriguing companions for humans since ancient times. Worldwide, cats are even more popular than dogs as pets. Sadly, huge numbers of cats are in need of adoption and care. A cat owner who no longer wants the cat, or is no longer able to care for a cat, may drop the cat off at a shelter or simply abandon it. Overcrowding in shelters, along with too few adoptive families for the cats, leads to many wonderful pets having to be euthanized. Abandoned cats fend for themselves and breed in the wild, forming colonies of feral cats. Feral cats have such a difficult existence that they typically only live an average of two years, whereas domestic cats can live an average of twelve years with proper care. Organizations exist that can catch and tame feral kittens, and then place them in a home, but adult ferals can rarely be socialized to trust humans. Meanwhile, many prospective cat owners choose to purchase a kitten from a pet store or breeder, and may not know that even purebred cats and kittens are often available for adoption.
Once someone is ready for the responsibility of caring for a cat, adoption can be an incredibly rewarding decision. Adoption benefits cats, owners, and society alike. Adopting a cat is typically much less expensive than purchasing one. Shelters often have a wide selection of very sweet, friendly cats and kittens, including purebreds. Adoptive owners enjoy bonding with their pets, and have the extra satisfaction of knowing they have rescued a wonderful companion from a hard existence. Every cat adopted means one less cat has to be euthanized. Every kitten purchased new results in one less opportunity for adoption to take place. If you are ready for a pet cat, please consider adoption!
