Deforrest

DMH - June 2 2018
Deforrest is a gentle, low energy boy that adores the company of other cats. While he is comfortable in a home - lounging on beds, clean in his litter box and with his food, he startles easily at commotion or quick approaches by humans. He probably learned this behaviour from his time living as a stray cat. He recovers quickly because he enjoys human company, especially pets on a bed and a snuggle. He often gently nibbles at hands when being petted, perhaps thinking you're playing with him but he will accept a toy as a substitute. Hands are not toys! Deforrest would be best suited to a cat experienced household without small children. He tolerates being picked up and carried short distances as long as he feels secure. Deforrest can be found lounging in the sun near his cat friends, grooming or playing with them. He will wrestle with them but always ends up on the bottom! He is a passive boy that submits to his more dominant playmates without protest. His medium, fluffy coat will require some brushing.

Jim Beam

DSH - September 2018
If you're looking for a new best friend, Jim Beam is the kitten for you! He is very affectionate and loving, always choosing time with his humans over his siblings. He follows people around, waiting for the chance to jump in a lap for a cuddle. He can be very insistent when he wants attention, using his paws or nose to nudge for pets. If he is ignored, he will jump up or climb a leg to get noticed! He gives very sweet kitten kisses and is gentle with children. Jim Beam gets lonely when he's on his own for too long and would thrive in a busy forever family with time to devote to him. He is close with his siblings and likes to spend time with the older cats in is foster home; he would be happiest with other animal friends or people who are home during the day.

Tia Maria

DSH - September 2018
Tia Maria is the perfect combination of sweet and sassy. She loves spending time with her human friends and adores being petted and cuddled. Tia is a great nap companion - she loves curling up beside one of her people for a quick rest! She purrs when she sees people and is happy to be carried around if someone is willing. She is gentle with children and curious about meeting new people. Tia plays energetically with her brothers and enjoys chasing crinkle toys, so much so that she often hides them from her brothers. She is smart and the boss of her litter, so with feline companions she would likely be happier to be the only female. She gets along with the other cats in her foster home but is also independent enough to enjoy being an only cat and strong-willed enough to handle living with a dog. Tia will be a perfect addition to her forever family!

Sable & Summer

DSH
Left behind when their owners moved away, Sable and Summer were not only homeless but also pregnant. Shortly after giving birth the two young moms were discovered in a neighbour’s shed and surrendered to NHKR. In foster care it was evident the moms had a special relationship, they were inseparable and affectionate with each other as they shared the responsibilities of raising their kittens. Sable and Summer will be adopted together so they may continue as best friends in their new home.
Sable is estimated to be around three years old, slightly older than Summer and possibly her mother. She is confident and affectionate with strangers, enjoying attention from everyone. She is also the ultimate lap cat, snuggling as long as possible. Although Sable is concerned having her nails trimmed she accepts it because she is a gentle girl.
Sable had an undeveloped eye which was removed, giving her a permanent wink. There are no health issues associated with this surgery.
Summer is a sweet gentle girl who is learning to become confident with people. She purrs happily with people she knows but sudden movements and loud noises startle her. She allows her nails to be trimmed and is accepting being picked up for brief snuggles, tremendous progress from when she arrived as a very scared cat.

Shaq

DSH - July 19 2016
Shaq is a relaxed, gentle and sensitive boy. He is very much a lap cat and loves to snuggle and receive chin strokes. He enjoys being picked up and purrs happily, especially if he is taken to a window with a new view. He is a confirmed content house cat.
He is a bit skittish (he hides) when visitors arrive. If they stay long enough he will come out to make new friends. He's a low energy cat but he does enjoy bouts of chasing a ball or soft toys.
Shaq has no teeth (extracted for medical reasons) but he easily consumes dry food. He does enjoy canned food with water to keep him regular..he has no tail and has some minor issues from the Manx Syndrome - "Poopy Bum Syndrome " and he has FIV (which is not a concern regarding him spreading it - as he has no teeth and is neutered) but he he should have a quiet and as stress free life as possible. He was noticed as a stray cat in a neighbourhood for almost a year before he was taken in and his issues attended to. He has been a healthy cat in NHKR care.
Shaq has been through a lot and is still a big teddy bear type cat- he deserves a loving protective family

Hamlet

DSH - April 7 2016
Hamlet tried a new home - it was a bit too busy for him to settle in and be comfortable. It maybe better for Hamlet if he is the only cat in his new home. He has younger feline friends in his foster home but he has some aspirations of being top cat. He is a calm good natured boy and easily handled for nails and grooming. Hamlet hesitates coming forward for attention but does not shy away when it is offered. He is gaining more confidence and is happy to follow his people friends around. Hamlet loves sleeping in the sun and viewing out windows but will not go near an open door to outside.

Tootsie

DMH - 2014
Tootsie is looking for a family committed to taking care of her and loving her forever.
Tootsie and her seven kittens were found abandoned at the end of a rural lane way. Her beautiful babies were adopted while Tootsie has remained in foster care to resolve health issues and help her overcome obvious neglect. Tootsie arrived in NHKR care with badly infected nail beds from an untreated autoimmune condition. She has pemphigus foliaceus , the most common feline skin condition. This is under control with regular medication and gentle handling, respect and affection have improved her disposition. Her foster family lovingly call her Grumpy Mommy Cat as they hug her. She is social with strangers and any available warm lap pleases her but she does not pester people and is equally happy to entertain herself. But if possible, she likes to be in proximity to people - the bottom of the bed is fine.
Tootsie has a medium length coat which does not require much attention from people but she enjoys being brushed and looking her absolute best. When you have a special ticked tabby coat you want to show it off! Trimming her nails is easily done, one just has endure grumbling and growling which is her tool for communication. Tootsie would enjoy being an only cat or could be in a home with older cats. She is low energy and enjoys playing on her own. Dogs and too much commotion send her into hiding.

James

DSH - August 2010
With great patience & understanding, James is learning to trust & adore attention once again. (Some actions indicate an abusive background). He is a big, beautiful boy that begs for constant attention, following his human friends all over the house to make conversation. James is very social, greeting guests and welcoming new people most times. When he is in the right state of mind, he loves his plush fur coat brushed or stroked. Even though he prefers his feet firmly on the ground, he will periodically surprise you when he decides to become a lap cat to get up close for some gentle snuggles. He can be enticed to play with a string or catnip toy but his favorite pastime is merely lounging around in a sunny spot, near the fireplace or a window seat. He is very good with using his litter box and scratching at the designated area of a scratching post. Trimming nails is not his favorite grooming ritual. His disposition is still a work in progress, therefore this husky boy should be adopted by experienced cat owners familiar with cat language. Watching his progress will be very rewarding for him and his new furr parents.

Bobbi

DSH - 2013
This lovely lady came into our program a very pregnant and injured outdoor cat. Because of her traumatic experiences, she is shy, timid and introverted until she has become comfortable in her surroundings. She definitely is not interested in being outside anymore. But old habits are hard to break because sudden movements and noises will send her into hiding. Nonetheless, Bobbi absolutely craves attention!! She cannot help herself and will be brave enough to seek her human friends for attention. Because of her outdoor past, she is not fond of being picked up and held. However her favorite place will be a wonderful warm lap with an adoring human friend that will pet, brush and stroke her furry head or brush her from head to toes for hours. Bobbi is a very passive cat with other furry friends. She will happily play by herself with a soft knit ball, fuzzy mouse or plastic toy spring. She is good with using the litter box and nail trims. Her perfect new home would be a quite calm environment with very patient people that will allow her time to become adjusted. If you are looking for the ultimate lapcat, Bobbi will happily be your furrever furr-baby.
