Darcy is the complete definition of a sweetheart. She's extremely affectionate and will always immediately jump on your lap for a snooze and a cuddle as soon as you siting her cat tree, she's content to play independently or with you. She often carries her toys around to play with and has the cutest meow on the planet when she wants attention. She would be a great companion for an older cat that will let her be, but would also be happy as the only cat to rule the roost as she's very submissive and wouldn't cope with being picked on by a dominant cat.
Darcy has beautifully soft black and white fur, she loves having her chin scratched, and is also happy to stretch out for a vigorous belly rub. She is never aggressive and loves company, happiest sitting right with or around humans. Darcy can be timid in new surroundings or with new faces at first, but it doesn’t take long for her to open up and come out of her shell and meet visitors for a pet!
When Darcy is in unfamiliar surroundings she looses her confidence very easily which is why we are after a foster home with view to adopt as her true sweet personality won’t be seen while she adjusts. She needs a quiet and calm cat savvy household able to do slow introductions to people, pets, and the house in general. Once she gains her confidence you’ll be rewarded with a snuggly, loyal best friend.

Cat Adoption Policy
Please note: completing an adoption form does not guarantee that an adoption will take place.
Melbourne Animal Rescue Inc. reserves the right to choose the most suitable applicant and reject those deemed less suitable.
Occasionally, there can be multiple applications for the one animal and there is no 'First In - Best Dressed' - the multiple applications are vetted for the most suitable.
We do our utmost to contact all applicants, including those who are unsuccessful, to infom them of the result but as we are staffed by volunteers, most of whom work full time, occasionally responses are overlooked and we apologise in advance if this occurs.
MAR does not adopt to those who are not permanent residents of Australia.
Also note the following strict policies, designed for the cat’s health and safety;
- White cats will only be adopted to indoor only homes
- Cats with pale noses/ear tips will only be adopted to indoor only homes
- Cats that will be allowed outdoors will only be adopted to homes on quiet streets, away from main/busy roads and intersections
