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 🙂

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”.


Brief Description:

  • Male Domestic Short Hair

Smooch Boy

This aptly named boy was whisked off the streets by some friends of ours. Smooch is not a Inner City Strays boy but we can put you in touch with his Carers.

Smooch was found on the streets in a terrible condition, with part of his lip missing and infected, he was covered in fleas and filth, and had eye infections from cat flu.

Despite his condition this special little guy trusted his feeders enough to give ‘smooches’ – giving him his name!

Vets diagnosed Smooch’s lip issue as most likely a rodent ulcer, caused by the heavy infestation of fleas. He was given antibiotics, steroids, flea and worming treatment, and slowly started to improve, allowing his loving personality to shine even more.

Once healthy enough he was desexed, vaccinated and moved into a foster carer’s home where he has come to life!

Smooch has discovered his inner kitten and loves to play with his foster carer, even bringing his preferred toys in his mouth!

He’s very ‘smoochy’, sweet and adaptable, so may suit a range of families, however will be best suited to a home where he is the only cat. Ideally, Smooch would love an indoor home with access to a secure, outdoor area where he can safely live and play.

If you’d like some smoochness please fill the expression of interest form by clicking on the big button below that says “Drop us a line if you’d like to adopt and save a stray”. Many thankful meows 🙂

Street cats don’t have it easy.

Our aim is to change that.

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.
