Leaf

DLH - DOB March 30 2024 2024

From the moment Leaf came into NHKR care with his sisters Bloom and Blossom, he has been laid back and calm. He is happy to follow his sisters and is curious about new people and places. He will actively try to engage people in play with him, by bringing toys or giving nudges. Leaf is super playful and has the energy to play for long periods of time - often continuing to play on his own once his sisters have tired out. Leaf does not wind down gradually; when he is tired, he simply drops and snoozes where he is. He likes to sleep with his security blanket and will suck on it to self soothe. Leaf is a very vocal kitten and starts talking as soon as he sees his people, as a way to get attention before the other kittens. Leaf does not mind being picked up and enjoys cuddles in someone's lap. He enjoys being brushed and will require regular brushing. Leaf must have a feline friend in his new family. He and his sister Blossom are a great pair, as he doesn't mind being bossed by her. Leaf gets along with the adult cats in his foster home and would be a great companion for a cat looking for a playmate. Leaf enjoys playing with older children and can handle a busier household.

Blossom

DLH - DOB March 30 2024

Blossom was initially a timid kitten when she came into foster care with her siblings Bloom and Leaf, although she quickly settled into her new surroundings.

She will take a bit of time to get to know new people and places, but once she feels comfortable, her true confident self shines through. Blossom would ideally enjoy a home with adults and/or older children. She loves playing with her siblings and must have a feline companion in her new family. Blossom has largely ignored the older adult cats in her foster home but enjoys being in charge of the young male cat she currently lives with...a young, easygoing boy would be an ideal cat friend for Blossom. While she has not met any dogs in NHKR care, she is confident enough to bond with one who is cat-friendly. Blossom is curious and often the first to investigate a new toy or addition to the cat room. She is very energetic and plays well alone, with her siblings, or with people. She is not a chatty kitten and will let her siblings do most of the talking. When Blossom is tired from playing she likes to sit in someone's lap to be petted and she sucks on her security blanket to put herself to sleep. She submits to being picked up for short periods of time. Blossom needs regular grooming and enjoys being brushed. She is a lovely kitten who will bring happiness to her new family.

Bloom

DLH - DOB March 30 2024

Bloom came to NHKR with her siblings Blossom and Leaf and was immediately at home with her foster family, playing with feline friends and people. She is a confident kitten who likes to be the leader of her pack; she will also try to boss older cats and people around! She is very active and loves playing with her siblings and any toy available to her. She doesn't mind being picked up and held, but as an energetic kitten she gets wiggly and wants to get down to explore. When Bloom is sleepy she will self soothe by sucking on a blanket and likes to sit beside her people for cuddles after playtime or when she has a full tummy. When she sees her trusted people, she will run to them to ask for a belly rub by rolling over on her back. Bloom can be timid when meeting new people but she adjusts quickly and then likes to be the centre of attention. She plays well with older children and interacts well with adult cats who are docile and don't mind taking direction from her. Bloom enjoys being brushed and will require regular grooming. Bloom will capture the hearts of her new family...and instantly be in charge of the household!

Maverick & Goose

Maverick DSH - DOB March 2 2024
Goose DSH - DOB March 2 2024

Maverick and Goose are bonded brothers who are both playful and snuggly. They came into foster care quite shy and timid, but have blossomed with patience and love. These boys are practically inseparable, choosing to play, sleep, and eat together as much as they can. Maverick is a curious kitten who investigates new things and reports back to his brother..if Goose gets a thumbs up from Maverick, he will join in. Goose takes on the protector role in this duo, always making sure that his brother is well and happy. Both boys are quiet, but chirp and squeak to communicate with each other. They love to play, diving into cat tunnels at great speeds and chasing feather wands like acrobats. Maverick and Goose love to wrestle with each other and will tussle and frolic until they are exhausted. Both boys crave love and affection from their people and both want to curl up together in the same lap; usually Maverick snuggles first and then Goose will join when he realizes that his brother is getting all the attention. Once they are settled for cuddles, they are in for the long haul and make great couch companions on movie nights. They do not mind being picked up for short periods of time, but as with most kittens, they are keen to get down and play or explore. These two kittens have sonic boom deafening purrs when their little engines get fired up! Maverick and Goose are still wary of loud household noises and would be best in a quieter household, with adults and/or older children who have the patience to gain their trust. Both boys are clean with their litter and food, and use vertical scratching posts, which they sometimes use as launch pads for airborne flybys! Maverick and Goose must be adopted together, but they also enjoy the company of easygoing adult cats. These Top Cats will bring joy to their new family!

Muppet

DLH - DOB May 8 2019

Muppet is a quiet and quirky young cat. Like his sister, Lady Jane, he was very timid and reluctant to trust people when he first arrived at NHKR but has since made progress. Muppet can still be cautious and skittish, especially around new people and new situations. He benefits from a slow, gentle and patient approach. He is an independent cat who keeps to himself and enjoys a good quiet spot to relax during the day (e.g., under a bed, in the cat house). Muppet loves to have his long, soft hair brushed. He will let you know by jumping up to where you are and reaching out his paw to tap you and signal that he is awaiting your attention. When he’s totally relaxed, he delights in lying on his back and having his belly rubbed. His warm, loud purr will melt your heart. He may even start licking your hand to show his approval. Like his sister, Muppet is a low energy and low maintenance cat. He enjoys lying in your lap even if Lady Jane is already there. He will either plunk himself on top of her or wedge himself where there is no room. Muppet is tidy with his food and litter. He is still learning to become comfortable with nail trimmings and requires an experienced person to accomplish the task. He is making progress with being held by his trusted people for longer periods of time. Muppet is bonded with Lady Jane and they must be adopted together. They would thrive in a quiet home with adults where they can continue to support each other and grow in confidence together.

Lady Jane

DSH - DOB May 5 2019

Lady Jane is a sweet and independent young cat. When she first came to NHKR, she was very shy and hesitant to trust people. She has since made progress and has shown growth in her confidence when around familiar people. Lady Jane is a lower energy cat and is quite content spending her days snoozing alongside her brother, Muppet. They can often be found together in the cat house snuggling and grooming each other. At night, she will retreat to her high perch and snuggle up with her favourite blanket which she will bring with her to her new home. During the night, when the house is quiet, Muppet and her like to play with and chase each other throughout the house. Once she warms up, Lady Jane seeks affection, loves to be pet and brushed with long strokes, and will let you know she is content with a warm, loud purr while rubbing up against you. When she wants to get your attention, she will let out a soft, faint meow. She loves to sit on your lap or share a bed with you at night, if you allow. Lady Jane is tidy with her food and litter. She is not food-driven although she does enjoy the occasional treat. Lady Jane is comfortable being held. She enjoys scratching her paws against a vertical cat post and requires an experienced person to trim her nails. Lady Jane would do best in a quieter home with adults. It will take her some time to become comfortable with new people as she often finds a quiet place to retreat while guests are visiting. Lady Jane is closely bonded with her brother, Muppet, and they must be adopted together. She gives him confidence and companionship. They can’t wait to find their forever home together!

Aster

DSH - DOB April 18 2012

Aster can be shy when meeting new people but is relaxed and present with her trusted people. She prefers the company of adults in a quiet household. When around young children she hides when it is noisy or there is a lot of activity. Aster would be great company for adults who work from home or retirees, as she appreciates a consistent routine. She has a calm nature and is not super active, although she will get bursts of energy and play with her toys in the evening. Aster is affectionate with her people and will rub against their legs and vocalize to ask for cuddles. She likes to sit on the couch armrest and doze when her family settles in to watch television. If allowed, Aster likes to sleep on the bed with her person. She has no issues being picked up. She is tidy with food and litter. Nail trimming is best done in short stints. Aster likes to drink from the bathtub tap and would likely enjoy a drinking fountain in her new home. She uses her scratching post consistently and can often be found sleeping on the top of the cat tower. Aster is a lovely girl who should be an only cat in her new home.

River

DMH - DOB June 2 2022

River is an absolute delight. He loves to give two-paw hugs and snuggle up under the chin of any of his people. Lap snuggles are also high on his list of things to do in a day. He has become confident and more independent as he has learned to trust people and understand that he doesn't have to have his eyes on people all the time to know that they won't leave him. He enjoys watching squirrels and birds from the window, as well as chasing strings on a wand or playing with one of his toys. He likes to nap on his cat tower, or in his cat bed on one of his foster family members desks, or on a chair or couch nearby. He is a great work from home or study companion! River must be an only cat in his new family.

He is adjusting well to living inside again and is becoming accustomed to the daily noises of life in his foster home. He is generally happy to meet new people and often accepts them quickly.

River usually loves to be picked up for snuggles or pats and will signal when he's had enough by wiggling or jumping down. He may swat (no claws), or bite if he is ignored. While this doesn't hurt (since he has no teeth), if you ignore his 'bites' it may ultimately escalate to him using his claws. He talks to his people to tell them when he wants food, snuggles or playtime.

River has no teeth and is missing one third of his tongue, so he has particular needs when it comes to eating. It is suspected that he has food allergies so he eats a limited ingredient dry kibble purchased at a pet food store and wet food for cats with food sensitivities from the vet. This dry food's shape and size also enables him to consume his food easier. He needs a small high sided round bowl to help him scoop his dry food up into his mouth, and once he's done his best, the remaining crunchies are mixed with about a tablespoon of wet food mounded in the bowl. He has the most success at eating the last few pieces of dry food when it is arranged in small piles of 2-4 crunchies (mixed with wet food ) for him in his bowl.
