NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Russell is looking for a foster carer or adopter. Can you help?

Russell came to us in very poor condition, with a previously damaged tail, skinny, sad and with eyes that had almost given up hope. He had obviously been homeless for a while, abandoned perhaps by a previous person as sadly seems to happen so often. Russell is very sweet and gentle, and cautious of any unexpected noises.

He cannot believe that he now has a name and a place to stay, food, and company. In return he is the most affectionate cat you would ever meet. He does not ask for much but will come up to you for strokes and butt his head against you to get it. If you ignore him he quietly walks away and sits himself at a distance so he can keep an eye on you. If there was cat who could read a room, Russell is that boy.

He is happiest on a full stomach, curled up snoozing the day away. Russell does not jump higher than a bed, couch or a chair to sit on. While he enjoys watching the world go by, he does not try to escape like younger cats may do. He likes to be around people as much as he can but is okay on his own, snoozing away, as long as there is food and water around. When hungry Russell gets very vocal and will tell you tales of starvation woes. He follows you around when he’s not snoozing or watching, but he is not intrusive when he senses you need some space.

Russell deserves to spend the rest of his life in a home with love and company. Perhaps you can give him that.
