Hobo

DSH - April 10 2016
Playing is upmost on his mind - by himself or with a playmate. Hobo is a gentle affectionate boy who wants to be friends with everyone. He doesn't have a high IQ which gets him into trouble with the male and female cats who don't appreciate his silly antics of yesterday, today and won't tomorrow. He is clean with his litter box and has no issues with nail trims. Hobo is facinated with the outdoors but does not dash to get out, but he would walk outside if the door was left open. He can handle a busy household and would love a playmate(s).

Butter Tart

DSH - April 10 2016
Butter Tart is a active happy girl who knows what she wants. She is gentle about delivering her messages - a meow and a wiggle means "down please". She enjoys the company of people and is easy to handle. Butter Tart would enjoy being an only cat or with passive older cats, she isn't interested in rolling around with younger cats (especially Hobo, he is annoying). Butter Tart likes to snuggle close and is content beside her people, especially if they rub her tummy!
Wells FargoWells Fargo
Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo

DLH - June 7 2017
When Wells was taken in, it was obvious that he was raised as an only kitten from very young- he bit people and didn't know how to behave. The older cats in his foster family were wonderful instructors and Wells soon learned proper behaviour. He is very cuddly and affection, following people to receive any attention. He enjoys being carried and is a confirmed lap cat. When unhappy he now gives clear messages , a small whine to be released. Wells needs a feline companion so he doesn't regress and to keep him company. Older children and adults who can interpret his language would find him entertaining and great companion.

Bounce

DLH - July 9 2017
This big guy is as sweet as he is fluffy. He's very gentle, calm and laid back and would be great with young kids or a senior that is calm like him. His energy level is low but he does really enjoy chasing and jumping trying to catch the fake bird (feather on a long stick) He really likes to be close to his people. That could mean walking by you, sitting near you, or lounging on your lap. If your home then expect that he won't be far away. When you’re not home though he is independent enough to be by himself napping while he awaits your arrival. Being a long haired kitten he may need some brushing and he seems to except and enjoy being brushed as long it's done gently. Bounce would be fine with other friendly pets.
DownyDowny
Downy

Downy

DLH - July 9 2017
Downy came into foster care very shy and skittish. He has come a long away in a short time but will really blossom once he is in his forever home. He really loves to be pet and will purr his face off almost from the minute you start petting him. You can actually visually see him relax and become a different calmer and more relaxed kitty once he's getting into and enjoying being pet. At this time he will gladly sit on your lap and soak up all the attention. Where you will need some patience with him is allowing him the time he needs to come to you. Right now if you go to him, he will run. I think he actually likes to "play" shyer than he really is. That's him being cautious and protecting himself. Once he feels more comfortable the shyness should go away. He would be best suited to a more quite home. Being a long haired kitten he may need some brushing and he is learning to like it as long it's done gently. He does like to play a little but is not the most energetic kitty.
CarnivalCarnival
Carnival

Carnival

DSH - July 8 2017
Carnival has a huge personality, so another female cat in the house would probably not enjoy her company. She loves to play with her toys , but prefers her humans company. Carnival is full of energy so a few kids in the house should keep her busy. She is the first one to the door to greet you and enjoys being picked up.

Ferris is a friendly guy who wants to play! He would do well in a home with other cats or on his own. Ferris enjoys your company and will look for you when he wants attention. Ferris likes to be petted and will climb on your lap to get his belly rubs. He is a man of few words as he hardly meows, so would do well in condos or apartments.

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.

WinfreyWinfrey
Winfrey

Winfrey

DSH - August 30 2016
Winfrey came to NHKR as a very young, pregnant Mom. She was tiny (except for her pregnant tummy) and undernourished. She delivered and nursed 6 bouncing kittens. Winfrey is ready for adoption now. She has gained weight, and is energetic and playful. She is a very smart little girl. Her best friend is a young male cat. They love to run and wrestle together, even though he weighs at least 50 % more than her. She gets along better with the boys in her foster home than the girls. She likes to be petted, but will let you know when she is done. She is quite definite. Winfrey loves her food, obviously because she was underfed before she came to us. When she first arrived, she would growl at the other cats if they came too close to her food. She will now take treats on the bed at night surrounded by other cats without even a squeak. Winfrey is a wonderful, fun loving cat who is a pleasure to foster.

Crystal

DSH - June 20 2017
Crystal is the shyest of the girls in this litter. She is starting to gain more confidence after a short time in foster care. She will come up to see her foster, but doesn’t quite climb into her lap yet. She will take a little time to gain more confidence, but will be a wonderful girl. She is very smart and playful and wants badly to be a braver girl.

Perrier

DSH - June 20 2017
Perrier is a lovely little girl who come running to you when you come to see her. She loves to play with her siblings and to chase balls and to play “wands” with her foster. She is hesitant meeting new people, but comes around quickly if you sit quietly and play. She would be more comfortable with older children.
CurbsCurbs
Curbs

Curbs

DSH - Sept 2016
Curbs is one sweet little girl, about one year old and is just so loving. She loves all humans and will gladly come for pats and loving attention. She will lay with you indefinitely but can also amuse herself when you are not around. She has bounced back from a rough start when she first came to the NHKR .You would never think she has experienced any adversity at all. Curbs has the sweetest disposition and shows her foster family so much love. Curbs loves to give kisses when she is being cuddled.
She is currently living with a senior, quiet dog and other cats. She is nervous of the other animals and generally keeps to herself or prefers her humans. Of late she has been exploring the house more and will gingerly pass the sleeping dog but is not interested in getting to know the cats as of yet. I think she would do well as an only pet, or with time become used to a calm companion. If you want a best friend Curbs is your girl.
ArissAriss
Ariss

Ariss

DSH - May 25 2017
Ariss is a sweet kitten with a quiet disposition. She loves the company of the other kittens in her foster home and is a gentle playmate. She is not assertive and will defer to a stronger-willed kitten. She plays with kitten toys energetically and follows the lead of her playmates. Ariss will cry if she finds herself alone and adores the adult cats in her foster home...she loves any attention they give her and is often found napping with one of them. Ariss will thrive in a forever home with other cats who will continue to show her the way and keep her company. She is affectionate with people she knows and trusts, and has excellent house manners. She does not startle or hide at noise and is not intimidated by people around her. When she is calm and sleepy, Ariss enjoys cuddles and pets, but when she is playing she is a bundle of energy. Having other outgoing cats around for guidance has helped Ariss feel more comfortable with people. She has made a lot of progress in a short amount of time in her foster home and with a forever family who is willing to continue to give her time and patience, she will be a loving feline friend to older children or to other animals.

Arabella

Arabella

DSH (dilute calico) - May 2015
Arabella (which is Dutch for beautiful) had been mom to more than one litter before she was taken in by NHKR. Perhaps that explains her tolerance of other cats and kittens. Arabella is exceptionally calm and passive. She is affectionate with out being needy and easily entertains herself. Arabella is very clean with her litter box and although unsure what it is about, she allows her nails to be trimmed. She especially enjoys being brushed. Arabella would enjoy a quieter home and gentle attention.
JamesJames
James

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.

LufkinLufkin
Lufkin

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.

Sydney and Jasmine

DSH - 2013
Sydney and Jasmine are a 4 year old brother and sister team. They are very much brown tabbies but Sydney has darker markings than Jasmine. They have been together their whole life and depend on each other - they need be adopted together. They are gentle, quiet and clean cats that are back in our care due to a change with their owner’s living arrangements. The siblings are not real talkative until they want pats and chin scratches or dinner. They know their names and come running for attention when called. Sydney and Jasmine came into NHKR care as very timed but lovely gentle cats. Their foster family has been working with them to come into their own and they are making great progress: they are out and about with us. They love affection and to lie with me on the couch, however they are still not comfortable with being picked up. We are working on this. They now enjoy playing with their toys on their own or with us, especially Sydney. They are on a weight loss diet since they came to us and are making good progress. Sydney and Jasmine are sweet, gentle, quiet cats that would continue to blossom in the right adult or older children home. They are truly wonderful siblings!

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 LillyTiger Lilly
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.
