Derry

DSH - 2017
Derry sat outside his home for hours alone, hungry and cold until a motorist noticed him sitting day after day in the yard of an obviously abandoned house. The motorist altered NHKR and Derry was easily captured . Derry's family left a wooden plank leaning up to a open window so he would have access to his home. Despite cold rain and wind - food lured him into in a cat trap in minutes.
Needless to say Derry was traumatized by his capture and abandonment. It has taken months to earn his trust and discover his personality. He is a gentle affectionate and quiet sweetie!
Derry is easily accepted by other felines of all ages, he avoids confrontations and is happy to be friends. He was introduced to a dog and did not panic but was watchful.
Derry quietly asks people for attention and approaches to receive scratches then gently and slowly crawls into a lap for snuggles. He is learning to accept hugs, not too tight or he squirms away . Derry is also learning to be picked up, this is being done slowly as it seems totally foreign to him. Although he may be scared he does not scratch or bite, he struggles to get away but does not run off because he enjoys the affection.
He is tidy with his food area and litter box. And seldom scratches except on his cat climber. Nail trimming takes patience because this is also new to him.
Derry would enjoy a quieter home with other cats, he would be a wonderful companion for older cats. His small size makes him ideal for smaller living quarters. And his mature but still young two years of age means he is past the kitten stage.

Chance

DSH - May 2019
This lovely little lady is pretty self reliant. She endeavors to avoid the fury of action her brothers try to enact upon her. Chance is happiest playing on her own with a soft ball, string or spring, and even periodically sleeping on her own. Although Chance does not mind being picked up and cuddled she may only intermittently seek to settle on a warm lap. Chance is the most vocal of her siblings since she would rather be playing separately, she wants to be sure her siblings are nearby. You will enjoy her vocal variety of trills, chirps and meows. She is clean and tidy with food and litter and takes nail trimmings in stride. Take a chance on adding this little sweetie to your family.

Charmed

Charmed

DSH - May 2019
Although this little guy started out the smallest of the litter, he makes up for it in personality. He is the most active and assertive of his siblings. You can't help but smile from watching his entertaining spunky antics. Not happy to sit still for very long, anything and everything entices attention and play. He boldly asserts his dominance as he steals his siblings toys or is ready to wrestle. Of course playing hard makes for a tired little boy that is happy to find a comfy lap. He will certainly charm his way into your heart. Charmed uses the litter box, tidy with his food and will tolerate nail trimmings even though they interrupt his precious play time. A home with another active cat or kitten or several attentive humans to keep him actively engaged would be ideal.

BloomBloom
Bloom

Bloom

DSH - April 28 2019
Bloom was the first born in her litter and has remained in charge since Day One. She is a smart kitten who thinks things through carefully before acting, and can often be found watching her brothers wrestle or play while waiting for the perfect moment to pounce on them all. Bloom can play as hard as the rest of her siblings, but often chooses not to...and she often sleeps away from the kitten pile, as if she needs her own space. She was the first in her litter to meet kitten milestones and her brothers take direction from her willingly. Bloom would likely enjoy living with another cat or an easy-tempered dog, as long as she can be the alpha. She doesn't love being picked up (likely because it wasn't her decision) but she is a great cuddler and loves when a human friend sits or lies down, so she can snuggle in close for pets and belly rubs. Bloom can be slow to get to know new people, but once she has given her trust, she is a loyal and dedicated companion. She would enjoy a quieter forever home (sometimes too much noise and commotion seem too much for her) and she is independent enough to be an only cat (so she doesn't have to share her humans)!

Ella

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.

Yogi

DSH - May 16 2016
Need a teddy bear? Yogi is a lovable big boy. He is not aggressive with other animals and loves people. He is gentle and quiet but not a couch potato. Yogi was living on the streets when he was taken in - he knows what people food tastes like and would enjoy some of whatever you are eating. He is not overly persistent but he would help himself it there was an opportunity . Yogi is clean with his food and litter box. He is content indoors and enjoys the comforts of the bottom of the bed. He does not care to be restrained so his nails are trimmed by ; cheek rubs, a nail trimmed, neck scratches, another nail trimmed. Caution - Yogi protects other cats, if they protest for any reason he comes to their rescue!

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.

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

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.
