Shaq

DSH - July 19 2016
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

Hamlet

DSH - April 7 2016
Hamlet tried a new home - it was a bit too busy for him to settle in and be comfortable. It maybe better for Hamlet if he is the only cat in his new home. He has younger feline friends in his foster home but he has some aspirations of being top cat. He is a calm good natured boy and easily handled for nails and grooming. Hamlet hesitates coming forward for attention but does not shy away when it is offered. He is gaining more confidence and is happy to follow his people friends around. Hamlet loves sleeping in the sun and viewing out windows but will not go near an open door to outside.

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.

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.

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.
