Silky (Barn or special home)

 Available Now / Posted 1 month ago

Silky was born on the streets of Canberra where she then had kittens who she came into care with (and they found homes – the Fabrics litter). She couldn’t remain in the same location as there were many cats and dangers, and no food or care.

When she came in she was not used to people as she wasn’t treated well by huamns from a young age, but has warmed up to her carer sitting next to her and talking to her, even talking back to her carer at one point. She is not fully socialised and will likely never be a lap cat. She is very fearful of strangers and may lash out if someone tries to force handling she doesn’t want.


Silky won’t be suitable for a regular house as it wouldn’t be fair on her long-term (and be detrimental to her health) to put her in a place she finds stressful.

She will make a lovely barn cat where she’ll bond with the farmers over time and sit and listen to whatever they have to say. She has promised to do her best with helping to keep the vermin under control but will also need fresh food and water daily like all of our cats.

The only other home she may suit is a quiet one where there is no dogs or kids and indoor and outdoor access (even an enclosed area she can access when she likes) as she needs space. In this situation she will need an owner who is dedicated to her wellbeing, doesn’t force interactions, is patient to work with her at her own pace, and has another cat for her to bond to.


Silky loves other cats and would very much like a home with another cat or two if possible. She is very mothering and after raising her own kittens managed to steal another cats entire litter and helped raise them as well. She has a LOT of love to give to other cats.


We suspect Silky is part Burmese as she has many characteristics and she’s a very tiny girl even though she’s fully grown.

Like all of our fosters Silky comes fully vet worked (desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, parasite controlled) and her adoption fee is reduced to only $100 to help find her the right home as soon as possible.

Adoption Process

We are committed to ensuring every pet adopted from us goes to a suitable loving home where they can live their happy ever after. We also like to ensure that the animal is best matched to the person's circumstances, lifestyle and family (especially other furry family members).

All of our foster cats are adopted to homes that are strictly indoor only or indoor with a cat enclosure or run. All of our dogs require suitable enclosed backyard space and daily exercise dependant on energy level. Our adoption process includes shortlisting of EOIs, video interviews with all household members, house check, adoption paperwork and payment, preparing for your new arrival and pickup.

Further information on the process is here.

Adoption Fees

  • Kittens (single): $450 (includes desexing, microchip, parasite control, first F3 vaccination, or $50 extra with second vaccination)
  • Kittens (pair): $400 each (includes desexing, microchip, parasite control, first F3 vaccination, or $50 extra each with second vaccination)

  • Dogs: $550-$850 (includes desexing, microchip, C5 vaccination, heartwormer, and parasite control)

**The adoption fees contributes towards the pet being desexed, microchipped, parasite controlled and their first vaccination (puppies include two vaccinations - C5 and C3). Any additional vaccinations and annual check ups are at the expense of the new owner at their selected vet. Government / Council Registration (additional to microchip registration) needs to be done per State or Territory requirements for the species of animal by the new owner. We fundraise to afford the full cost of medical treatment and care which can cost us thousands per animal. Please consider making a donation to help us save more lives.**
