Autumn

DSH - April 2016
Autumn was dumped outside of Acton where she had 5 kittens. She hid her kittens but went to a home to receive food. When she brought her kittens to the home, NHKR was called to gather the family and take them into foster care.
Autumn is an exceptional cat - she is gentle, patient and calm. She gives back as much love as she accepts - anyone who gives her attention is rewarded with her affection. Autumn enjoys the company of other cats and is affectionate towards them. She could also be an only cat. Autumn is clean with her litter box, not pushy about food and is fine having her nails trimmed. This beautiful girl deserves a home where she will be cherished and appreciated.

Salt

DSH - August 15 2017
Salt is a sweet little girl who absolutely loves to be near people. She enjoys chasing her toys and wrestling with her brother. Salt's favourite thing to do is to sit on your lap and enjoy some snuggles. Salt is curious about other cats, though she can be timid at first. She would do best in a household where there are people at home a lot of the time. Salt could be an only cat, or would enjoy the company of other cats once she gets used to them.

Just look at that exotic face! She is certainly ‘out of this world’ adorable! This kitten is a quick thinker and very sociable. She interacts well with the other kittens and would do well with kids and pets in the home. Have many toys on hand to keep this one stimulated! She loves to play and explore and accepts new challenges quickly- she loves cardboard boxes!!

Cosmos

DSH - September 2 2017
This tiny little lady is a deep thinker and an awesome cuddler! She loves a warm lap and will choose snuggles over playtime- when given the choice. Being a bit more of an observer, this kitten will sit back and watch the other kittens run around her first, before joining in. She likes to have a friend to hang out with, and would do well with another kitten or cat ( or human )to follow around.

Comet

DSH - September 2 2017
This handsome little guy is the sensitive, strong, & silent type- in a group with his sassy sisters. He is truly a mama’s boy and loves to be right by your side at all times. You will be beckoned by his tiny meows until you give him your attention, and playtime. He would do well with another kitten, or on his own, and would enjoy some kids to play with also.

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.

Whatsit

DSH - July 26 2017
Whatsit is a playful little girl with an engaging personality. She is the first to start playing and the last to quit. She is affectionate and warm with her people and loves to snuggle and purr when she has finished playing. She is adventurous and loves to explore, and greets new cats and kittens with no great drama. She will wrestle and play and chase as for as long as someone will comply. She has not met a dog, but should be just fine with one.

Baby Boo

DSH - August 5 2017
Baby Boo has become a confident and assured kitten. She is out and about in the house and gets along with other kittens and cats. She loves to play and chase her friends. She could be an only cat as long as her person is not away from the home too much. She would do well with older children in a quieter house. She would sleep with them at night and snuggle foe her naps. She loves to chase springs and sponge balls, and would probably learn to fetch as she is a smart little girl.

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.

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!

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

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 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.
