Kermit

DSH - DOB 25 April 2020

Kermit is smart, athletic and friendly. He is cautious around strangers, but is happy to see people he knows. Kermit is still working on being comfortable when approached, so it is best to allow him to approach first. Once in lap, however, he would like to stay forever, purring and stretching out Kermit loves climbing....a cat climber is a must, as he can often be found lounging at the top. He also loves ball toys! Kermit is great with the litterbox, and is very clean with his food. He is very happy with the dogs in his foster home! He would do best with another cat, in an experienced family who will love him and work with him as he learns to trust. Kermit is a sweet kitten, and would love to spend his days with that special forever family!

Miss Piggy

DSH - DOB 25 April 2020

Sweet Miss Piggy is truly unique. Although she is shy at first, Miss Piggy will lay in a lap for hours, dozing and enjoying scratches under her chin. She loves children, and enjoys strong toys and springs. Miss Piggy also loves the cat climber, lounging at the top and watching through the window. As she was rescued as an older kitten, it has taken time, understanding and patience to earn her trust. Her forever family will have to continue this work, but it is so worth it, as she purrs in your lap. She would do best with an older mentor cat, who can help her learn that people and the indoor life are great! Active, and sweet, Miss Piggy will be a great addition to her family!

Gonzo

DSH - DOB 25 April 2020

Gonzo is such an active, inquisitive kitten. He loves to play, tumbling around and wrestling with his brother, Fozzie. Gonzo has become quite brave, but understanding and patience will be necessary when introducing him to his new home, as he can be unsure of new people and surroundings. Cat treats from his people's hands have helped him trust, too! Gonzo's favourite toys include springs and tunnels. He would do best if adopted into a home with an older mentor cat, or with Fozzie. Gonzo is very fun and entertaining, full of energy and antics!

Fozzie

DSH - DOB 25 April 2020

Fozzie is a sweet little guy, and has come a long way in his foster home. He can often be found chasing his brother, Gonzo, around the room and up the climber. He is still timid when first meeting new people but is starting to investigate them on his own-espcially if they have a cat treat to share! Fozzie is comical and is always into mischief. He likes children and has been good with the dog he has met. He prefers to sit beside people, rather than in a lap, but enjoys pets. He is good with his litterbox and clean with his food as well. A home with another cat would be best for Fozzie, as he can learn to trust people from another feline companion. Life is never dull with Fozzie, and he will be an exciting addition to his new family.

Cookie is good with other cats and loves getting pets from her foster family. She has started to come for cuddles on the lap.

Spice

DSH - DOB 16 August 2019

Spice is a very relaxed cat. She loves to find a sunny and cozy place to watch the people in the house and curl up for a nap. Spice is very food motivated and loves her treats. She will also give a soft ‘prrt’ if her bowl happens to be running low. Spice is clean with her litter box and food area. She is great with people and other animals. Spice is comfortable being picked up, carried, and cuddled. Spice is such a sweet cat that loves attention, but is also happy to explore on her own. Spice likes looking out the window to see what is new with the world, but is more than happy to stay inside where she can get pets and treats!

Bali

DSH - DOB 24 May 2020

Bali is the introvert of the tropical island litter. She is a shy, quiet kitten but is filled with love. Bali often hangs back when her siblings are wrestling or chasing toys and will find a toy in a quiet area away from the crowd to play with instead. She is extremely affectionate with people and prefers a warm lap to snuggle in. Bali will purr the entire time with her person and will sit as long as you let her. She is often pushed aside from eating or toys by her more aggressive siblings but blossoms when she is playing by herself. The dog and other younger cats in her foster house were not a favourite of Bali. A quieter home, perhaps with older children, would allow her to come out of her shell and shine.

Shutter

DSH - DOB 8 May 2020

This brown tabby girl was not as trusting as the rest of but has shown that she does like to be with people and toys she is just cautious. She adores her older foster brother and will follow him everywhere but she also gets along with the rest of her furry friends including a dog and senior cats. She will do best with another cat friend to keep her company and teach her. She does well with her regular mani/pedi and is a clean little kitten.

A special note about the Water Cats (Rain & Tide)

The four water kittens came into the rescue with a common cat affliction - an upper respiratory virus, which often causes secondary infections. The kittens had eye and sinus infections . The intense medical treatment to cure the infections resulted in extremely friendly cats that love everyone and enjoy lots of handling. Unfortunately each cat has a blocked tear duct, it is undetermined whether this is from the eye infections or genetics. The cats are fostered with other cats without passing along the virus and they have not had any further health issues.
These girls have a special bond and need to be adopted in pairs or into a home with other affectionate cats. They are highly active, social and inquisitive girls who insist on attention from people so other felines are required as a distraction.

RainRain
Rain

Rain

DSH - 24 June 2019

Rain is more respectful of people's space and asks for attention. If people are busy, off she goes to find a sister to play with. But if people are doing anything interesting like folding laundry she is there to help. Rain is a typical curious cat, if a drawer is left open, she will be in it , a bag left unattended becomes a play thing, as does any small object - pens are wonderful toys. She is also fascinated by water and it is difficult to close the bathroom door quick enough for privacy. Rain also likes to snuggle with people but will settle for one of her sisters. She is tidy with her litter box and food area. Rain enjoys window viewing but will not go outside.
TideTide

Tide

DSH - 24 June 2019

Tide is another water cat. She loves the bathroom and waits for people to exit the shower so she can jump in and play. The cat's water fountain is one of her favourites, to touch the bubbling water before she drinks it. Tide is more curious about people's food and if left unattended she will sample it , but she is not aggressive about it. Tide rarely sleeps on her own, if people are not available then she has to find a sister to snuggle with. When Tide finds a wonderful toy, she announces this as she walks through the house, if a sister shows up and takes it, she looks for another one. If Tide wants to pass a person , she simply walks over them or uses people to jump on to get where she wants to be. Bending over brushing teeth may result in Tide on your shoulders. Nail trimming is easy and she is clean with her litter box.

Big Red

DSH - 2010

Red came to us as a stray very overweight and in pain. He had dental work done, was diagnosed as hyperthyroid and started on a weightloss regime. Big Red has lost 5 lbs so far and still loosing weight. He needs to take thyroid medication daily and will always need to, this will cost aprox $25. per month.

Big Red was declawed by a previous owner. Even with the initial treatment for his health issues he has adjusted well to his foster home. He is a quiet guy who curls up in his room on a cat pad when he needs alone time. He is a floor cat, he doesn't jump up on furniture and prefers to lay on the floor where he can see you. He is friendly on his own terms and enjoys walk by pats and scratches. He enjoys people company and talks sometimes most likely hoping for food or a treat. Which he doesn't get because of his weight loss journey! Big Red is calm, mild mannered, and gets on well with an old dog and other cats. He fits in well and is a sweet boy who would enjoy a quieter home.

Etch & Sketch

Etch & Sketch

Etch - DSH - Oct 16 2017
Sketch - DSH - Oct 16 2017

Note: Etch & Sketch are a pair and will be adopted together.

Etch & Sketch came into NHKR care when their owner was evicted and could not take his multiple cats with him. The demolition company opened windows and doors to let the cats escape and then bulldoze the house. NHKR was notified and when the girls returned late at night, they had to be trapped to bring them into care. Both cats were traumatized by the displacement and separation from their kittens which were removed from the house prior to demolition. Sketch also required a full dental extraction and Etch had soft tissue trauma to her back leg. NHKR fosters have patiently worked with the cats and now it is time for them to have a new family in a quiet home. Their new family needs to be understanding experienced cat people.

The girls need each other for confidence and comfort - they sleep together and groom each other. They are gentle and affectionate with people they know. They will come for attention and enjoy long strokes and scratches. They are not lap cats, Sketch loves cuddle time beside her people on the sofa. Etch allows her people to pick her up, Sketch is learning this. Both girls are tidy with their food and litter box and use their sisal and cardboard cat scratchers. Etch is more manageable for nail trims, Sketch wiggles and flees in protest but an experienced cat person will be able to trim them. They do not sleep on the bed at night but may stop in for a quick visit. Etch loves spring coils to bat around. She picks them up in her mouth and trots around making all sorts of strange noises. Sketch prefers small rubber balls or soft toys. Etch loves food and gobbles if given too much canned food (as a treat) but Sketch is not interested - both are not interested in people food but will explore countertops. The girls will be playful and full of character once settled into a new home but it will take time.

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.

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.

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.
