Nelson

DSH - May 28 2017
Nelson is a friendly and easygoing kitten. He is very chatty and loves to talk to his human friends. He is a bit of a baby...he loves attention and will cry if he finds himself alone, or if one of his siblings is getting attention instead of him. Nelson loves to chase balls and scrunchie toys and is learning to play fetch. He follows the lead of his siblings and gets along well with the older cats in his foster home. Nelson is very adaptable and enjoys playing with gentle and quiet children. He would be a great companion for a young cat or with another kitten friend.

Severn

DSH - May 28 2017
Severn is a very smart little lady! She is the boss of her siblings and the first to learn new things or warm up to new situations. She is very curious and enjoys the challenge of new toys and games - she needs to be kept busy to avoid getting into mischief. Severn is very affectionate and loves people. She adores having her belly rubbed and will grab hands or climb up a leg to ask for cuddle time. She adapts very quickly to new people and is comfortable with children of all ages. Seven is a busy kitten with a lot of love to share - she would thrive in a forever family with another animal friend and/or lots of activity and attention.

Jerry Springer

DSH - May 30 2017
his boy is one big cool dude. He is really friendly, confident, laid back and super sweet. Loves when your around to get pets but is ok on his own too. He does like to run around and chase things but tires quickly. He does have some hunter instinct in him which shows when he hunts and "kills" his stuffed toys. He does like to give kisses and little "love bites" but they don't hurt. It's just his way of showing you affection. This guy would be fine with other cats but doesn't like dogs.

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.

Mistral

DSH - March 1 2017
Slightly shy but affectionate and gentle. This girl needs encouragement to come forward for attention, her siblings usually are up front and she stays behind. She could be an only cat with people with plenty of time for her. She plays nicely with her toys and is gentle with people.

Buck

DSH - April 29 2017
He enjoys watching the others play until his favourite wire toy is used and he joins in. He is full of energy, but not aggressive at all. Buck sings when you pick him up to rub behind his ears but glad to get down to play. He would be okay as an only kitten.

Chester

DSH - April 19 2017
Chester is comfortable being a follower and would get along with other cats or a friendly dog. He is active but not so adventuresome that he would get into much mischief. Chester likes to cuddle and snuggle up close to people when he sleeps, sometimes exploring ears and noses when he's not sleepy.

Brazil

DSH - April 15 2017
Brazil is the feisty one of the litter! He is slow to come out of hiding when people come around. He prefers to watch the action from a protected view point. An adult only or quiet home is best for Brazil. Once you gain his trust, he will fall asleep while you pet him. He has a very loud purr.

Cashew

DSH - April 15 2017
Cashew has come a long way from a frightened little guy that hid when people came near. Now he purrs and meows whenever people come to see him. He would do best in a home that has older children or an adult only 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

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

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.
