INNER CITY STRAYS

We’re a group of compassionate, passionate cat lovers who are making a difference to the lives of street cats. We work towards rescuing and saving the strays, the abandoned, the unloved, and the neglected cats and kittens in inner city Sydney.

Please explore our website to find out more about us and of course to see some of the cutest rescue cats and kittens ever 🙂 And please don’t forget to also like / check out our Facebook page.

We could always do with more assistance so if you’d like to help out in some way please get in contact.

Inner City Strays is proud to be part of a fantastic initiative by the City of Sydney. The City of Sydney has received a grant of which a substantial portion will target humane management of stray cat populations in its LGA. The funding is part of the Office of Local Government’s Responsible Pet Ownership Grant. Any kittens we foster under this scheme will have their veterinary work covered by the grant which reduces our financial burden.

This covers cats only in the City Of Sydney’s LGA – residents can contact the City’s Companion Animals Liaison Officer, Michelle O’Brien, on 9265 9333 if you wish to discuss this further.

Bear living like a King now

This handsome cat, affectionately known as Bear, did it tough on the streets for a number of years. For Bear, life finally turned out for the better. He is currently living like a king with a lovely, loving family who adore him to bits 🙂

Adopt

If you adopt us we will love you forever.

These cats and kittens below might be stray, abandoned and homeless but they would absolutely adore your love. They have been lovingly socialised by our awesome foster carers and are now looking for a loving forever home.

Please consider offering them a second chance to a better life that they have so far not experienced.

All our kittens/cats have been microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated (and loved and pampered to the max). The cats are desexed but the kittens which are too young to be desexed get desexed when they are slightly older. More details in our Adoption Policy which you can read here.

How can you say no to our available kitties below who are waiting for your love?

If you’re interested in adopting please fill in the form by clicking the big button below the kitten profiles that says “drop us a line if you’d like to adopt and save a stray”.

Pebbles

Brief Description:

  • Female Domestic Short Hair

  • Located in New South Wales

  • Not available for interstate adoption

Story:

Pretty and playful.

Little sweet Pebbles is learning to all about this big, wide world. She is very shy and a little unsure of noises. Once she trusts you, she rewards you with her unlimited love. She could play for hours with a string toy and a cat house. She needs someone who is calm and patient at the start or someone with a calm friendly cat who will guide her through this big world.

Did we mention that she has some of the most amazing markings every seen on a cat? Pebbles is definitely one of a kind.

Flame and Amber

Brief Description:

  • Female and Male Domestic Short Hair

  • Located in New South Wales

  • Not available for interstate adoption

 

Story:

Hot couple

Amber is always smiling/blinking at her humans. Good natured with an edge of ‘tortitude’, she likes to test the food in everyone’s bowl to make sure the food in hers is the best. Takes the lead in road testing new toys but also likes to be part of a team and if anyone else is going to the bathroom, playing or sleeping she will copy. She does everything with determination and enthusiasm and has decided laps are a good thing and if there is not enough space on the lap she will just sit on her sibling Flame (pile on anyone?!).

Her brother, Flame, is a soft ginger and white male with soulful eyes and total love bug potential. A gentle, shyer, boy who is an advocate for kitty equal rights and lets his sisters wear the trousers. He is a bit wary of hooman hands but is learning to enjoy cuddles and definitely enjoys the comfort of a cosy lap. He has the loudest purr of the pair and provides a running commentary in squeak language as he explores new things to let you know what he is thinking. His natural enemy are slippers and they must be destroyed on sight, with no mercy for any toes within.

Meet Flame (chip 900164001790350) and Amber (chip 900164001790346) now!

Story:

Softy

Soft ginger and white male with soulful eyes. Love bug potential.

A gentle, shyer, boy who is an advocate for kitty equal rights and lets his sisters wear the trousers. He was very scared on coming into care and is still wary of hooman hands but is learning to enjoy cuddles and definitely enjoys the comfort of a cosy lap.

He has the loudest purr of the trio and provides a running commentary in squeak language as he explores new things to let you know what he is thinking. His natural enemy are slippers and they must be destroyed on sight, with no mercy for any toes within.

Barnie

Brief Description:

  • Male Domestic Short Hair

  • Located in New South Wales

  • Not available for interstate adoption

Story:

Golden Boy.

Barney is a little ginger ninja. He is the most playful little warrior. He can play for hours and sleep in the middle of the living room with his belly up. He’s the bravest little boy we know, not scared of anything. Always the first to explore a new area, guiding his siblings on a new adventure. We would love him to go to a family with a little boy/girl who can share or benefit from his confidence. His vet said he’s a very strong & healthy boy. His favourite place to seek is the door that hides lots of food, emits cool air and a shining light (a.k.a refrigerator). Very happy to sleep on you at night and soak in the warmth.

Barney and his litter mates are purr machines. They will purr anywhere and anytime humans get close to them, and at meal times.

We need foster carers to help us socialise stray cats and help with the rehoming process.

Our amazing team of foster carers foster young kittens through to adult ex colony cats. If you’d like to join the team and are interested in fostering kittens/cats, please get in touch! The more foster carers we have the more kittens and cats we can take off the streets.

About

Inner City Strays, Inc is a not-for-profit incorporated association and charity comprising of a team of dedicated, passionate volunteers.

Our work involves reducing stray numbers by rescuing young kittens and cats from various places around the inner city area of Sydney. We provide them with health checks and necessary veterinary treatments, foster and socialise them, before adopting them out to good homes through our adoption program, respected agencies and veterinary practices.

Currently there is an unknown number of cats living on the streets of Sydney that are constantly at risk of being hit by cars and suffer from untreated disease or injury. These cats form colonies which may comprise of just a few felines to quite a large number.

Through no fault of their own they are often persecuted by residents, members of the public, local businesses or various government departments that refuse to see them as a living, sentient animal.

As we are all volunteers we would love the the support of cat lovers who want to see life-affirming programs implemented. We need tangible contributions; money, volunteers, cat food, foster carers, as well as community legal, veterinary and local business support.

We support the internationally recognised ‘Five Freedoms’ of animal welfare:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury or disease
  • Freedom to express normal behaviour
  • Freedom from fear and distress
Every cat will have food in their belly, a family to love them and a warm place to call home.

Rescuing and reducing the number of stray, homeless street cats and kittens in inner city Sydney and working towards providing them with a forever home.

Saved and Happy

So many lovely, loving people have come forward to adopt and save “our” inner city strays and we, and the kittens/cats, are forever grateful to them. Some of the cats have written, and sent some cat snaps, to show us how happy they are.
