Foxie

DMH - November 16 2017
Foxie was recently surrendered to NHKR as a stray. She has been spayed, had her teeth cleaned and a broken incisor extracted. She is a agile lively girl who pursues tossed toys with a passion. Foxie is clean with her litter box and is not upset with trimming her nails, but it is advisable to do it when she is tired. She is interested in the outdoors and needs to be watched around open doors until she learns to stay safely inside. Foxie soaks up attention and then asks for more, she is interested in snuggles when she is tired and accepts being picked up for brief hugs. She has an assertive personality an older female would not approve of but her male friends don't mind and older cats would find her too active.

Shirriff

DSH - August 9 2017
Shirriff (marmalade) will need patience and understanding in his new home until he is confident, then his affectionate personality will come out. He enjoys playing with other cats and having a confident playmate would help him. In his foster home he enjoys chin and neck scratches while he snuggles beside them but he still nips occasionally when people miss his "I've had enough" message. Shirriff is a work in progress - he arrived as a very frightened young cat, not accustom to being in a house and now shows no interest in going outdoors. He can be held briefly , the length of time is increasing as he learns to trust those handling him.

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.

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.

James

DSH - August 2010
With great patience & understanding, James is learning to trust & adore attention once again. (Some actions indicate an abusive background). He is a big, beautiful boy that begs for constant attention, following his human friends all over the house to make conversation. James is very social, greeting guests and welcoming new people most times. When he is in the right state of mind, he loves his plush fur coat brushed or stroked. Even though he prefers his feet firmly on the ground, he will periodically surprise you when he decides to become a lap cat to get up close for some gentle snuggles. He can be enticed to play with a string or catnip toy but his favorite pastime is merely lounging around in a sunny spot, near the fireplace or a window seat. He is very good with using his litter box and scratching at the designated area of a scratching post. Trimming nails is not his favorite grooming ritual. His disposition is still a work in progress, therefore this husky boy should be adopted by experienced cat owners familiar with cat language. Watching his progress will be very rewarding for him and his new furr parents.

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.

Bobbi

DSH - 2013
This lovely lady came into our program a very pregnant and injured outdoor cat. Because of her traumatic experiences, she is shy, timid and introverted until she has become comfortable in her surroundings. She definitely is not interested in being outside anymore. But old habits are hard to break because sudden movements and noises will send her into hiding. Nonetheless, Bobbi absolutely craves attention!! She cannot help herself and will be brave enough to seek her human friends for attention. Because of her outdoor past, she is not fond of being picked up and held. However her favorite place will be a wonderful warm lap with an adoring human friend that will pet, brush and stroke her furry head or brush her from head to toes for hours. Bobbi is a very passive cat with other furry friends. She will happily play by herself with a soft knit ball, fuzzy mouse or plastic toy spring. She is good with using the litter box and nail trims. Her perfect new home would be a quite calm environment with very patient people that will allow her time to become adjusted. If you are looking for the ultimate lapcat, Bobbi will happily be your furrever furr-baby.

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.
