Patterson

DSH - July 16 2017
Patterson would be a perfect young cat for first time cat owners, a family with affectionate children or company for another cat. He has a soft fluffy short coat over a chunky body - adorable. He is extremely affectionate and even gives hugs! He will accept affection from anyone and return it. Patterson must have a home where he will receive a lot of attention. He is clean with his litter box, not food driven and easily handled for nail trims.

Music

DSH - January 2017
This tiny colourful girl will be a year old in February. She came into NHKR foster care as a scared bewildered cat. Her reactions, once inside a home, indicated she had no or very restricted house experience. It has taken months for Music to settle in to become comfortable and enjoy living indoors. She is very clean with her litter box, does not want to go back outdoors and uses her scratching posts and climbers.
Music absorbs attention - she craves neck scratches and long strokes down her back, but is still hesitant about asking to be noticed. If she is approached quietly Music will stay for stroking and enjoy it all. If she thinks harm is intended she will run, but not far, and she comes back. She is accepting more handling as she settles in, even allowing short durations of being picked up and cuddled. Music is passive with other cats and is accepted by them with no aggression. She allows their company but does not seek them out for bonding.
A quiet home with patient people is needed for Music to continue developing her confidence. The more attention she receives the more she enjoys it and with time , she will become an affectionate relaxed house cat.

Hamlet

DSH - April 2016
This gentle big boy was found wandering in a rural hamlet , hence his name. Hamlet is a confirmed house cat, he is interested in viewing outdoors but does not go near open doors. He is not accustom to receiving a lot of attention but he enjoys it and has begun to ask in a very small voice, to be noticed. He allows being picked up and relaxes when he receives cheek and neck scratches. Hamlet socializes well with other cats - he plays nicely with younger cats and respects older cat's space. Although he doesn't understand nail trims and wiggles to be free, he allows it. With time, attention and more confidence Hamlet will be a relaxed and affectionate pet.

Butler

DSH - November 2016
Butler is beautiful young boy around a year old. He is very affectionate and loves chin rubs and pats. Butler is fun loving, gentle and a clean boy. He is really becoming comfortable in his foster home. So far he will not come to cuddle but when you get his attention he will stay for chin rubs and pats indefinitely. He loves to play independently with his toys for extended periods of time. He is hesitant with new animals and situations but does not show dominant behavior. He tries to engage my older cats and is becoming more comfortable around my senior very quiet golden retriever.
Although he has not been here long he is becoming more comfortable and is becoming a confident young boy. Butler will fit well into a family that will allow him the time to become comfortable in his new surroundings.

Pancake

DSH - August 2016
My name is Pancake but everyone calls me Panny. I was rescued when I was very pregnant. I had 9 babies and although I was suffering from malnutrition I was able to nurse for 7 weeks. I finally left my babies and entered into a new foster home. I was still weak and tired. At first I was very timid and was reluctant to play. I now love to be stroked, especially with a grooming mitt, and I can play everyday. I am looking for a furever home which is not too busy. I prefer to be the only pet and all I need is a bit of time and patience to get used to a new home. Once I know I'm safe I will greet you every morning with great delight. I will show you where my breakfast is and then hang around until it is nap time. While you are home I will come up beside you for stokes. I do love a good scratch under my chin. I always let my foster Mum know what kind of strokes I like. I am very clean and always use the litter box. You can pick me up for a cuddle but not for too long as I do like to be grounded.

Eclipse

DSH - August 19 2016
Anyone out there looking to liven up their household with a small girl with a huge personality? Eclipse is a saucy, comical, nosey, affectionate chatty cat. Her her new human family must understand cat language and do as instructed or her tiny feet (whith out nails) will let you know she is not pleased. Eclipse enjoys following her humans everywhere and investigating everything by jumping in it or on it. When she is so inclined she enjoys a good snuggle and to be carried around. Quick snuggles and neck scratches are always welcome. Eclipse was pregnant when her owner left her outdoors and moved. She was taken in by neighbours where she gave birth to two kittens. Because she was outdoors, Eclipse shows an interest when doors are left open but she does not dash to escape. Eclipse does not engage other cats in play but accepts their company. She needs a home with feline experienced adults.

Brinks

DSH - February 2017
After a rough start when rescued, as the only surviving kitten in his litter, it has taken some time in foster care for Brinks to begin to feel safe and comfortable with people and other cats. Brinks is a very shy kitten who enjoys a quiet environment without a lot of sudden noises or unpredictable routines. He loves to be petted, especially having his belly rubbed, and will meow and nudge with his head to ask for more cuddles. Brinks will curl up next to a trusted person in bed or on the couch and is learning to be more tolerant of being picked up. In a comfortable and familiar setting, he loves to sit by a window in patch of sun to watch birds and chipmunks, but he has no interest in going outside. Brinks is very food motivated and this has proven to be a positive way to teach him to trust. He plays very energetically with other kittens and has learned to play fetch with his favourite crinkle balls. He loves the adult cats in his foster home, wanting to be near them and learning social behaviour from them, but he is respectful of the need for space and is not assertive with the senior cat he lives with. Brinks is looking for a quiet forever home with a family who will continue to teach him to trust with time and patience.

Crayola

DMH - May 26 2017
Being a little shy, this kitten may do well in a quieter environment, possibly with another kitten or cat to follow around, and gain confidence from.
She is very cuddly and affectionate, and loves to play, but would benefit from a calm home.

James

DSH - August 2010
He is one husky dude. James is a big solid boy with a big personality to match. He's a guy's cat! If you're looking for a conversational companion, you will enjoy his quirky chatter. You will love his soft plush fur for a gentle petting or a quick brush up. He loves to be the center of affection, and will periodically be a lap cat, but on his own terms. Since he prefers to have his feet firmly planted on the ground, he is not much interested in being picked up and not much of a snuggler. However, he does need to be near his human friends at all times. James will keep you company no matter where you are in the home. He will play periodically if his human friends can entice him with a string for playtime. James can be defensive at times (some actions indicate an abusive background) and should be adopted by experienced cat owners that read cat language.

Lufkin

DSH - 2016
Lufkin has been with NHKR for almost a year. She was caught as an older kitten, which unfortunately gave her mother time to teach Lufkin outdoors survival skills- run from people. Patience and kindness from her foster family have convinced Lufkin that people are her friends and life is much better as an indoor cat. Lufkin is a happy gentle cat, she loves attention , chin scratches, long stokes and to cuddle up in a lap. She still retains some of her mother's teaching and if Lufkin is approached her first instinct is to run but now she does a U turn and comes back for attention.
If she is not noticed, Lufkin will stand on her back legs and tap people to say "I'm here, pet me " When people are stationary she will approach anyone for attention. Better still , if they are sitting down she comes immediately. If Lufkin is handled gently there is no issue trimming her nails, she is clean with her litter box and she enjoys having her thick soft coat brushed.
Lufkin would enjoy having a playmate, she is social and passive with other cats , a lonely cat would enjoy her gentle playing, perhaps even a friendly dog. Lufkin's new family must be careful not to chase her, let her decide when to come and soon they will be best friends.

Bobbi

DSH - 2013
This lovely lady tends to be a bit shy until she is comfortable in her surroundings. Bobbi, tends to be overshadowed and introverted when around more outgoing cats. We feel she might have been an outdoor cat because she runs when approached, but she definitely loves attention when she is brave enough to seek a gentle petting. You will know her desires when you feel a perpetual stare from Bobbi. She finds it very difficult to refuse a good brushing or head rub, but any sudden movement will send her back into hiding. Her ideal forever home might be in a calm quiet environment with very patient people. If you are looking for a quiet furry companion, she will be purrfect for you.
She will reward you with her soft purr and occasionally even a kitty kiss. Her favourite toy to toss around is a plastic spring, when she is in the mood.

Tiger Lilly

Tiger Lilly

DSH - Born 2014
When we find mom cats (queens) they are usually undernourished and frantic for food, so when food is available they often over eat and put on weight , especially after weaning their kittens and being spayed. Tiger Lily's eating is under control and she has been slowly loosing the added weight. Her new family will need strong resolve to resist her assertion that she needs a snack between meals. Scooping her up for a snuggle and ride to look out a window is a distraction that easily replaces a bit more food.
Tiger Lily is a gentle easy going cat with just a hint of the calico personality. She is vocal and will carry on a conversation as she follows people around the house. She is a mature 4 years old, past the tearing around age but she still enjoys play time with the laser pointer and her catnip toys. She will jump up beside people for a snuggle some scratches and a tummy rub but prefers to nuzzle against people than be a lap cat. She is a morning girl and knows when its time for her people to get up, if they don't know, she starts grooming them and gentle taps on the face just so no one sleeps in.
Trimming her nails is easily done and she is clean with her litter box. Not so tidy when she eats - she removes her food from the dish to enjoy it off the floor. Tiger Lily would be happy as an only cat, she does not enjoy feline company - she may tolerate a friendly quiet dog. Her people should be older children and adults who will understand when she needs some quiet time to herself.
Tiger Lilly can be viewed at Pet Valu Georgetown South, 369 Mountainview Rd South during regular store hours.

Check back often as new kittens enter our program all the time. 
Come and see us at Pet Value in Georgetown (235 Guelph Street) on Saturdays.
