Meringue

DSH - DOB May 2 2024

Meringue is a brave and feisty kitten who loves to explore new people, places and things. She is always the first out to greet visitors to the kitten room and check out new items. Springs and crinkle balls are a favourite play time toy and Meringue will bat and chase them until she tires herself out. Meringue is also very interested in people and loves to snuggle under the chin of her foster dad to take a nap. If ignored, Meringue has been known to jump on or climb legs to get the attention she feels she deserves. She is very playful and is a big participant of the tunnel or wrestling games with her littermates.
FondantFondant
Fondant

Fondant

DSH - DOB May 2 2024

Constant action is an apt description for Fondant - he is either playing or sleeping! Fondant is especially fond of anything he can jump and hide in especially if it crinkles. Fondant is lively during kitten playtime and is always in the middle of the action. He loves to chase balls and play hide and seek in the cat tunnel. He is most often running around with Meringue and is often found cuddled up with her during kitten nap time. Fondant loves attention and pets from his foster family, but he is not a lap cat, preferring to hang out beside his person. Toes or feet under a blanket are irresistible as are noses - Fondant is learning they aren’t for eating! He can be a bit of an escape artist and has snuck out of the kitten room a few times. He has interacted with both older cats and a small dog with no issues. Fondant will flourish in a home with lots of action he can join in with - be it human or other pets.

Ganache

DSH - DOB May 2 2024

Ganache is a sweet, happy-go-lucky kitten who greets each day as an adventure. Ganache is especially fond of anything she can jump and hide in, especially tunnels or tents. She is always up for a wrestling match with her siblings. She loves to play in the kitten tent and pop out at her unsuspecting littermates. When people enter the kitten room, she will demand attention and especially loves to get tummy rubs and fall asleep on laps. She interacts happily with the foster’s cat and is tolerant but not interested in the small dog. Ganache will flourish in a home with lots of action she can join in with - be it human or other pets.
MousseMousse
Mousse

Mousse

DSH - DOB May 2 2024

Mousse is the calmest and quietest of his litter but has the biggest heart and sweetest personality. He will initially hang back when people enter a room, but will quickly join the fun once he sees what’s going on. Mousse loves people and especially likes to cuddle with his foster family. He will be very vocal if he isn’t picked up fast enough or feels too much attention is paid to the other kittens. Mousse is always up for a wrestle with his siblings but rarely starts the match. He will hang back a bit if the whole group is playing, preferring to play with the toys with less competition. Mousse loves sitting on the cat tree watching the backyard activities and playing in the cat tunnel. He is happy to interact with the older foster cat and a small dog. Mousse would do best in a house with a kitten friendly older cat or another kitten to take the lead and people who love to cuddle.
TitaniaTitania
Titania

Titania

DSH - DOB May 1 2024

Titania is a smart kitten with a medium energy level. She is playful with her siblings and loves to wrestle and chase. She can also easily entertain herself with cat toys or with a cat tree that has nooks and crannies for scooting around in. Titania is bold and usually the first kitten to investigate something or someone new; she will then give the "all clear" to her siblings to join her. She doesn't like to miss out on anything and will cry if she finds herself alone or sitting outside a closed door, especially if one of her favourite humans is on the other side of it. Titania likes being petted and cuddled and if she is done playing will ask for a lap snuggle...particularly if it's her foster human dad. She also likes to be carried around and really enjoys attention from gentle children. Titania must have a feline friend in her new home. She sometimes clashes with her sister Hermia over who's in charge and so to avoid power struggles, she is best matched with male cats. She does love being around the adult male cats in her foster home and is respectful of the cat hierarchy. A similarly aged kitten or a young adult cat would be a great match for Titania.
OberonOberon
Oberon

Oberon

DSH - DOB May 1 2024

Oberon is a high energy kitten. He stops moving when he is tired, and prefers napping in his person's lap, but otherwise he is on the go. He likes long hallways he can run up and down and loves climbing and jumping on the cat trees. Oberon is curious and will get into mischief if his environment is not properly kitten proofed...open drawers and cupboards are invitations for exploration and he will make a toy out of any object lying around. He is very gentle when he plays but does need a lot of active attention. He enjoys the company of children. Oberon is also a lover and adores having his belly rubbed. When someone is sitting or lying down, he will jump up to them and present his belly for scratches. Oberon must have a feline friend in his new home. While he respects the adult cats in his foster family, a high energy kitten or young cat is best for him. He has not met any dogs yet, but his fearless personality would lend itself to living with one who is feline-friendly.
PuckPuck
Puck

Puck

DSH - DOB May 1 2024

Puck is an adorably goofy kitten with boundless energy and an easygoing nature. He is best described as "happily clueless"...Puck is often 5 steps (literally and figuratively) behind his siblings but is never upset about it. He just runs to catch up and joins in the fun. Puck is very playful and will chase anything that rolls or crinkles. He loves to wrestle with his siblings and play hide and seek under covers or in the cat tunnel. Puck can be clumsy when climbing or running, but shakes it off and keeps going - it really just adds to his charm. He is a snuggler and will nose his way into someone's lap, even if another kitten is already occupying it. He gives sweet kitten kisses and nose boops. Puck must have a feline friend in his new family to both play with and to be his mentor. He is very curious about the adult cats in his foster home but can annoy them with his persistence, so a young kitten/cat with a similar energy level is the best situation for him. He has enjoyed playing with children who can maintain his short attention span. Puck's easygoing personality would likely match well with a feline-friendly dog.
HermiaHermia
Hermia

Hermia

DSH - DOB May 1 2024

Hermia is a smart and independent kitten. She is the leader of her sibling group and although she is small, she is definitely mighty. Hermia can be bossy and does not hesitate to put her brother's in their place with a quick swat when they are annoying her. After a battle of wills with the adult cats in her foster home, Hermia has realized her place in the cat hierarchy, but she will try to become alpha with any cat she meets. Hermia must have a feline companion in her new family...a male kitten or young cat with a similar energy level will keep her feeling in charge. Hermia is very high energy and playful. She likes perching on the top of the cat tree or on a windowsill, for the dual purpose of getting time away from her siblings, but also to launch sneak attacks on them. Hermia has enjoyed playing with gentle children and especially likes chilling with the young adults in her foster home, playing video games and watching movies.
LysanderLysander
Lysander

Lysander

DSH - DOB May 1 2024

Lysander is a quieter kitten and an absolute snuggler. He adores being petted and will always choose a cuddle over play time. The moment one of his people is stationary, he is attempting to get into their lap or cuddle beside them. He shows his affection by giving lots of kitten kisses. Lysander is playful and energetic when kitten games are happening and he loves to chase crinkle balls; he will carry one in his mouth to the end of the hallway to set it up to bat down the long straightaway. He is an easygoing kitten who follows the lead of his siblings. He is respectful of the adult cats in his foster home, eager to have their attention, but also backing off when they indicate they need space. He has enjoyed playing with gentle children. Lysander must have a feline companion and mentor in his new family; either a same aged kitten or a young adult cat who will play with him.
BabbleBabble
Babble

Babble

DSH - DOB June 11 2023

Babble came to NHKR after having kittens as a stray. She is a wonderful, quiet girl. SHe plays with her toys and is happy to explore independently, but she also loves to be held like a baby and be petted. Babble is very agreeable with the other adult cats in her foster home; she isn't assertive and is happy to just hang around with them. She also likes the foster family dog and will rub up against her to say hello. Babble likes being where her people are and will join them around the house. She is a talker and chats when she wants attention or simply wants people to know she is there. Babble is a very easygoing young cat and would make a wonderful companion for either a cat-friendly dog or other adult cats in a quieter family.
QuinceQuince
Quince

Quince

DSH - DOB 2023

Quince is a lovely young girl who loves to explore the house and especially loves to watch birds and other wildlife outside the window. She came to NHKR as a pregnant stray and was an amazing mom to her seven kittens. She is a small girl, so this was quite a feat! Quince loves to play with other cats and is respectful of the older felines in her foster home. She adores the foster family dog and greets her when she comes and goes. She plays with her friend Babble (another recent mom) and loves to be petted, especially tummy rubs. She is getting used to being held but still prefers to sit with her people and be petted. Quince is an independent cat who will seek out her humans when she wants company and affection. She would be a wonderful companion to another adult cat or to a cat-friendly dog in a quieter, adult home.
TulaTula
Tula

Tula

DSH - DOB June 17 2023

Tula is a passive, gentle, intelligent girl. Her kittens have been adopted and now it's her turn. Tula came from outside and she never wants to go back out there. She is becoming comfortable with household sounds and meeting new people as she explores what a home is like. It took a couple of weeks under the bed before Tula felt safe to start exploring and learning. Since then she has learned to jump on the couch for cheek scratches, that being picked up is just fine and there was no problem trimming her nails. Now she will chirp and chatter when she is happy, she sprawls on the couch and has started snuggling up against her people to sleep. Tula would appreciate a family of adults with / without older children who would be patient as she continues to learn. She will probably hide under the bed again until she feels safe with her new family. She has met a variety of other cats and navigates around them. She loves to play by herself so she would enjoy being an only cat or with older cats not wanting to play with her.
MagnoliaMagnolia
Magnolia

Magnolia

DSH - DOB April 7 2024

Magnolia is a very playful and outgoing kitten. She is always the one to initiate playtime with her litter mates. When playtime is over, she loves being cuddled by her foster family. She must have another young cat friend in her new home, as she is high energy and will need to be entertained. She is tidy with her litter and her food. She will be happy with older, gentle kids who are experienced with kittens and has spent time with a feline-friendly dog.
MuppetMuppet
Muppet

Muppet

DLH - DOB May 8 2019

Muppet is a quiet and quirky young cat. Like his sister, Lady Jane, he was very timid and reluctant to trust people when he first arrived at NHKR but has since made progress. Muppet can still be cautious and skittish, especially around new people and new situations. He benefits from a slow, gentle and patient approach. He is an independent cat who keeps to himself and enjoys a good quiet spot to relax during the day (e.g., under a bed, in the cat house). Muppet loves to have his long, soft hair brushed. He will let you know by jumping up to where you are and reaching out his paw to tap you and signal that he is awaiting your attention. When he’s totally relaxed, he delights in lying on his back and having his belly rubbed. His warm, loud purr will melt your heart. He may even start licking your hand to show his approval. Like his sister, Muppet is a low energy and low maintenance cat. He enjoys lying in your lap even if Lady Jane is already there. He will either plunk himself on top of her or wedge himself where there is no room. Muppet is tidy with his food and litter. He is still learning to become comfortable with nail trimmings and requires an experienced person to accomplish the task. He is making progress with being held by his trusted people for longer periods of time. Muppet is bonded with Lady Jane and they must be adopted together. They would thrive in a quiet home with adults where they can continue to support each other and grow in confidence together.

Lady Jane

DSH - DOB May 5 2019

Lady Jane is a sweet and independent young cat. When she first came to NHKR, she was very shy and hesitant to trust people. She has since made progress and has shown growth in her confidence when around familiar people. Lady Jane is a lower energy cat and is quite content spending her days snoozing alongside her brother, Muppet. They can often be found together in the cat house snuggling and grooming each other. At night, she will retreat to her high perch and snuggle up with her favourite blanket which she will bring with her to her new home. During the night, when the house is quiet, Muppet and her like to play with and chase each other throughout the house. Once she warms up, Lady Jane seeks affection, loves to be pet and brushed with long strokes, and will let you know she is content with a warm, loud purr while rubbing up against you. When she wants to get your attention, she will let out a soft, faint meow. She loves to sit on your lap or share a bed with you at night, if you allow. Lady Jane is tidy with her food and litter. She is not food-driven although she does enjoy the occasional treat. Lady Jane is comfortable being held. She enjoys scratching her paws against a vertical cat post and requires an experienced person to trim her nails. Lady Jane would do best in a quieter home with adults. It will take her some time to become comfortable with new people as she often finds a quiet place to retreat while guests are visiting. Lady Jane is closely bonded with her brother, Muppet, and they must be adopted together. She gives him confidence and companionship. They can’t wait to find their forever home together!
AsterAster
Aster

Aster

DSH - DOB April 18 2012

Aster can be shy when meeting new people but is relaxed and present with her trusted people. She prefers the company of adults in a quiet household. When around young children she hides when it is noisy or there is a lot of activity. Aster would be great company for adults who work from home or retirees, as she appreciates a consistent routine. She has a calm nature and is not super active, although she will get bursts of energy and play with her toys in the evening. Aster is affectionate with her people and will rub against their legs and vocalize to ask for cuddles. She likes to sit on the couch armrest and doze when her family settles in to watch television. If allowed, Aster likes to sleep on the bed with her person. She has no issues being picked up. She is tidy with food and litter. Nail trimming is best done in short stints. Aster likes to drink from the bathtub tap and would likely enjoy a drinking fountain in her new home. She uses her scratching post consistently and can often be found sleeping on the top of the cat tower. Aster is a lovely girl who should be an only cat in her new home.
RiverRiver
River

River

DMH - DOB June 2 2022

River is an absolute delight. He loves to give two-paw hugs and snuggle up under the chin of any of his people. Lap snuggles are also high on his list of things to do in a day. He has become confident and more independent as he has learned to trust people and understand that he doesn't have to have his eyes on people all the time to know that they won't leave him. He enjoys watching squirrels and birds from the window, as well as chasing strings on a wand or playing with one of his toys. He likes to nap on his cat tower, or in his cat bed on one of his foster family members desks, or on a chair or couch nearby. He is a great work from home or study companion! River must be an only cat in his new family.

He is adjusting well to living inside again and is becoming accustomed to the daily noises of life in his foster home. He is generally happy to meet new people and often accepts them quickly.

River usually loves to be picked up for snuggles or pats and will signal when he's had enough by wiggling or jumping down. He may swat (no claws), or bite if he is ignored. While this doesn't hurt (since he has no teeth), if you ignore his 'bites' it may ultimately escalate to him using his claws. He talks to his people to tell them when he wants food, snuggles or playtime.

River has no teeth and is missing one third of his tongue, so he has particular needs when it comes to eating. It is suspected that he has food allergies so he eats a limited ingredient dry kibble purchased at a pet food store and wet food for cats with food sensitivities from the vet. This dry food's shape and size also enables him to consume his food easier. He needs a small high sided round bowl to help him scoop his dry food up into his mouth, and once he's done his best, the remaining crunchies are mixed with about a tablespoon of wet food mounded in the bowl. He has the most success at eating the last few pieces of dry food when it is arranged in small piles of 2-4 crunchies (mixed with wet food ) for him in his bowl.
