About Hisses to Purrs
Hisses to Purrs was started in 2021 by a couple who, through their love of cats, became involved in various cat rescues in 2019. After a while, they noticed a gap in cat rescue in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. While many rescues combine rescuing street cats with surrendered or abandoned cats and kittens, none (that they could tell) solely focused on street cats. With ever-increasing kittens born on the street each year, Hisses to Purrs was born to do its little part to combat the growing population of street cats in the southern area. Instead of following in most other rescues' footsteps, Hisses to Purrs strictly focuses on street cats. We do not rehome owned cats, take on surrendered cats or unwanted litters of kittens. While we are only taking kittens and their mothers at this stage, we hope to take adult and junior cats in the future as we sign on more foster carers.

Catalie Portman is the last of Meowdonna's
kittens up for adoption.
You'd think this girl would have a classic Tortie attitude but she's all purr with not a spicy bone in her body! The second smallest of her litter of 7, Catalie will steal your heart in an instant.
Like her sister Nicole, Catalie is one of the most affectionate, social kittens you'll ever meet. She loves sleeping by your head at night and will run up to you right alongside Nicole to fight for your attention! She has the loudest purr and being near her human is all she needs to get her purr motor running.
When she's not all over you, she can be found doing zoomies with Nicole or playing with any toy she can find.
Catalie would be best suited to a home that can provide plenty of attention. If she could go home with Nicole even better!
Catalie is pretty great with other cats once she gets to know them. She's untried with children and dogs.
