Hisses to Purrs was started in 2021 by a woman and her mother who, through their love of cats, became involved in various cat rescues from 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 and cat colonies. With ever-increasing kittens born on the street each year, Hisses to Purrs was born to do their 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 and cat colonies. 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.
Adoptable Cats and Kittens
All kittens on this page can be met at their foster carers homes.
Please contact us to book an appointment if you would like to meet one of our kittens.
There are no Cats or Kittens available for adoption at this time. Please like our Facebook page for when kittens become available. As kitten season is just starting, we only have neonate kittens currently in care of Juniors who are still in the socialisation process.
Available Ahead of Vet Work
All Hisses to Purrs kittens and cats are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, parasite treated and socialised before they are placed up for adoption. They also come with an adoption pack full of goodies to help them settle into their new homes.
All kittens adopted through Hisses to Purrs must be kept indoors or have access to a secure cat enclosure/run only

It is Hisses to Purrs' mission to save as many street cats in the southern suburbs as possible. We only focus on street cats and cat colonies rather than take in surrenders and rehoming pets for people as we believe this is done by multiple other rescues and results in the stray cat population...
Below is a preview of our social media feeds. This is where we share most of the information and updates on the kittens and cats in our care. Please consider liking our page or following us on Instagram and helping us grow as a rescue!
