Acorn

DSH - 2019
Acorn is a sweet kitten. Although she can be shy at first, once she warms to you she is affectionate and loving. As you build your relationship with her, you will find that she loves cuddles and purrs loudly when you scratch her head and neck. Acorn enjoys chasing feather toys, shoestrings, and loves to hunt a laser pointer dot. She loves to nest and frequently snuggles into blankets or cozy nooks in her cat-stand. Acorn is adaptable to both life on her own, with her human companion, as well as with other feline friends.

Lucky

DSH - July 2018
This lovely petite Momma cat has had a challenging start at motherhood. She was taken in when near starvation, with barely enough food to nourish herself, never mind; in order to provide for her 4 beautiful kittens. Lucky was fortunate to come to the NHKR program. With finally enough food & nutrition for her and her babies, they all thrived. But this wee thing was having some difficulty eating, after a full dental extract, she is much happier.
Lucky is a timid little lady,but a fantastic momma, that will adjust quickly! Just a kitten herself, she stills loves to play, on her own, with her kittens or foster family. The current toy of choice is a little rubber ball but any toy will do. Now that she no longer has to worry about her next meal, she is very affectionate and definitely enjoys the attention of the human touch.
Surprisingly, Lucky is very brave and loves to explore new surroundings. Be forewarned though, she is a good jumper and high counters are easy peasy! She is a very clean delicate little girl with litter box use. She has learned to enjoy being picked up and snuggled. It is Lucky's good fortune that she is now a single, independent girl and looking for a furrever home that will be gentle, loving and attentive.
Since she is so laid back and tolerant, she would be well suited for any home but she would certainly enjoy a companion.
We hope that this sweet little lady will pull on your heart strings. Take a chance and welcome Lucky into your home.

Fortunate

DSH - May 2019
For this wee one, the best treasure is a nice warm lap. He's a snuggler, however, he happily frolics with the group but the best place is the attention and caress of a human friend. His favorite toy is a plastic spring that he bravely tries to keep away from his assertive brother. Fortunate is a real sweetheart. He uses the litter box, tidy with his food and laid back with the nail trimming ritual. You would be very fortunate to have this loving boy as an addition to your family. The ideal furr-ever home would be able to provide the best of both worlds-plenty of kitten stimulation and lots of lap love.

Red Rover

DSH - August 16 2018
Red Rover is a passive shy cat, he needs another cat to help him build confidence and be his friend. He is very gentle when he comes to his people for attention, he loves to cuddle, playing comes later. He cuddles first and plays later.
He is a clean tidy cat that causes no problems. Red Rover prefers to sit beside you for his rubs and he does not protest when he is picked up. He is fine with foster family but shy with strangers and will need time in a new home.
He is being fostered with Fiddlesticks and would be happy to be adopted with him.

Fiddlesticks

DSH - April 12 2019
Fiddlesticks is an easy going, quiet, loving and boy. He will take awhile to settle in as he still skittish from being outdoors where he was frightened - he does not want to go back outside.
Fiddlesticks comes for attention so he can snuggle up against people but will shy away if you approach him too quickly. He is rapidly overcoming this fleeing habit because he loves cheek and neck scratches from people. Fiddlesticks plays nicely with his toys and is gentle with people.
Fiddlesticks is clean with his litter box and food area and trimming his nails is easily done. He is best friends with another foster male, Red Rover. They would be a great combination if you wanted to adopt two kittens.

Daisy & Shaq

Daisy & Shaq

DSH - 2016
Adorable Daisy came to her foster home at 3 years old. She has teamed up with Shaq who is also a 3 year old male foster boy. It took no time for the pair to become buddies. Daisy is more active than Shaq and loves to run and jump over him. Shaq is now getting more exercise as he wants to keep up with Daisy. They love to play hide and seek with each other. When Daisy is not active she likes to cuddle on a human where she stretches out with not a care in the world. Shaq is a real soppy cuddle bunny. When he is ready for a nap he will ask for a nice comfy lap. They would both love a quiet home where they will be number one and get all the attention they need.

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

Pageboy

DSH - May 21 2019
This beautiful little girl would make a great addition to almost any home. Pageboy will start purring as soon as you come near in anticipation of some cuddles and will continue to curl up beside you for as long as you have the time to show her some attention. She gets along well with all of her foster siblings (cats), young and old and has even spent time with dogs. Pageboy is playful but in a gentle way and is clean with her litter and tolerates getting her nails trimmed.

Goodyear

DSH - May 2019
Goodyear loves to snuggle. He looks up with calm brown eyes and holds your gaze until you pick him up or pull him into your lap. Goodyear is very relaxed kitten and will sit at length in your arms, not wriggling or fussing, just content to lie on his back and gaze at your adoringly. Despite his calm demeanour, Goodyear still loves to chase his ball, jumping and twisting in the air to catch it. Shoelaces are his weakness and he will never turn down a chance to chase a lace. Goodyear will add so much love to any household!
Like many of us humans, Goodyear has a food sensitivity. This is easily managed with hypoallergenic food.

Ella

DSH - July 2018
Once upon a time there was a very cute kitten taken home by people to be their own. No one knows why but when she grew up they took her to a barn to live and forage for herself. Ella had no idea how to find food in the barn so she travelled to a nearby house where the kind people fed her, they could not keep her so they returned her to the barn. For many days Ella left the barn to search for food, she became thin and her coat was matted. The neighbouring people asked the farmer if they could have her, he didn't know where she came from so he agreed she should not be living in a barn.
Ella was surrendered in May to NHKR and placed in a foster home - her life in the barn over and her new life beginning. She has regained her beautiful sleek coat, her energy and bright eyes.
She is both sweet and saucy. Ella gives clear signals and when she is displeased and enforces her opinion with nips. When she is relaxed and settled she is a sweet cuddler. Her bed time routine is receiving long strokes down her back, cheek rubs then a kiss on the head and she finds a corner at the bottom of the bed to sleep. She does not nip if feet get too close.
Ella is clean with her food area and litter box, she enjoys grooming and will indicate when she's had enough. Trimming her nails involves much cheek scratching to distract her.
She is happy to be an only cat and entertains herself by enthusiastically playing with toys and following people. Ella is an entertaining conversationalist - her chirping sounds are musical.
Only experienced cat people who appreciate a huge personality should adopt her. Ella is estimated to be a year old and will calm down once she is settled in a home and she feels safe. Absolutely no other felines, dogs or young children should be in her new home.

Manuel

DSH - 2012
Manny was originally a stray then he became a store cat. The constant attention was not for him and he developed some health issues. He is looking for a new quiet home and people to love.
Although Manny’s (Manuel's) origin is unclear, what is crystal clear is that he loves love. Once he has warmed up to you, you have a best friend for life. He does best in an environment free of loud noise, children, dogs or other cats. He can learn to love another cat if their personality is right, but he will still need time to himself or with his people. Manny will absolutely curl up on your lap or nuzzle your hair, and he will, if engaged, have an entire conversation with you. A good, feathered wand is a favorite pastime of his. He can get over-stimulated at times, but once you get to know (and love) his quirks, the special care he requires will be well worth the very special kind of love he gives in return.
Manny has had digestive and urinary health issues in the past, and as such will need to be on a high-quality, vet-recommended food permanently. Despite this, at approximately 7 years old, Manny is extremely young at heart.
For more information or to arrange meeting Manny please email info@nhkr.ca.

Ghost

DSH - April 1 2017
Ghost is a big boy! He enjoys attention from people and is affectionate. But he will give gentle nips if he is restrained longer than he desires. His personality is similar to a kitten raised without other pets - he's had to learn manners and cat etiquette living with other fostered cats. He is learning quickly but Ghost is not very interested in socializing with them - people are his main focus, although he was friendly with a small dog. Ghost is clean and tidy with his food and litter box, does not try to go outside and his nails are easily trimmed between cuddles and ear scratches. He plays nicely with his toys and easily entertains himself. He would be happy in a home with older children and adults and older pets but not youngsters.

Tootsie

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.
