Available Kittens


A Special note about Nibbler & Niblette
Nibbler and Nibblette were born outdoors to a stray cat. They had limited contact with people before being brought into NHKR care at 16 weeks old. Since being in foster care the siblings have made huge progress to become house cats. Both do not want to go outdoors and have decided attention from people is wonderful! They do retain some of their mother's teaching and will run if approached too quickly but they are also getting over this. Initially when strangers visit they disappear. Once confident no harm is intended they will return for attention. Both are clean with their litter box and use the scratching posts provided.

Nibblette

DSH - April 2 2017
Also a gentle nibbler - Nibblette enjoys attention from people. She has become more confident around people but still runs when approached too quickly of if she thinks she is being trapped. Nibblette loves to have her face and necked scratched and will stay anywhere as long as she receives this attention. She is practicing to be a lap cat and being held; making good progress on both. Nibblette has no issues with other cats. She could be an only cat with people that understand she is still gaining confidence.

Hutch

DSH - August 1 2017
Do you want an amazing little girl who has overcome incredible odds to become a wonderful young cat? Baby Hutch arrived at NHKR after a man noticed her jump out from underneath his truck hood after a three hour car trip on the highway! How she survived is anyone’s guess. She was malnourished and unwell. She hissed when anyone came close, cat or human. She was so very scared. She was afraid of hands coming close to her face, and would flinch.
Baby Hutch is now out and about the house with other adult cats. She follows her foster Mom around the house, and snuggles in the bed purring madly when it is bedtime. She loves to be petted along her back and around her face and chin and ears. She likes to come to you and will still leave if you try to go to her. She loves to be talked to and seems to think that her foster’s ideas are all brilliant. She is very food oriented, and loves her little bit of wet food in the morning. She loves batting at you with her very soft paws, and loves to have them stroked. She plays well on her own or with her foster Mom. She has a best friend cat that she plays with, and she ignores other cats.
Baby Hutch has come a long way, and with patience will go much farther as she learns to trust. She would suit a quiet home, and she will flourish. She would be fine with a male cat to play with and to help build her confidence in the home, or as an only cat if her family is close by.

Rowan

DLH - September 16 2017
Rowan is a boy for action - he is busy either playing or investigating. He will take time out for a snuggle, some tummy rubs or to play, then he is off on a new adventure. He enjoys playing with other cats especially his foster brother Rane. His favourite toy is a small ball he carries with him. Rowan has a mixed coat of medium and long hair which will require brushing which he enjoys.

Hamlet

DSH - April 2016
This gentle big boy was found wandering in a rural hamlet , hence his name. Hamlet is a confirmed house cat, he is interested in viewing outdoors but does not go near open doors. He is not accustom to receiving a lot of attention but he enjoys it and has begun to ask in a very small voice, to be noticed. He allows being picked up and relaxes when he receives cheek and neck scratches. Hamlet socializes well with other cats - he plays nicely with younger cats and respects older cat's space. Although he doesn't understand nail trims and wiggles to be free, he allows it. With time, attention and more confidence Hamlet will be a relaxed and affectionate pet.

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.

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.

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

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 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.
