Tigress

DSH - 30 April 2020

Tigress is tiny compared to her brothers but has a giant purr and a huge love of snuggles. Her favourite thing is to have a chat and a snuggle on your lap while her human enjoys their morning coffee. She is one tough girl... she’s very capable of keeping up with her brothers, and can wrestle as well as any of them. After a rambunctious playtime, she will return to a person for some attention. Tigress adapts easily to new people. She is easygoing about getting her nails trimmed and is tidy in her litter box. Tigress is comfortable with children and is not dominant with other cats. She would love to live in a house with other playful animal friends.

Panther

DSH - 30 April 2020

Panther is very affectionate and loving. He is a playful and happy kitten. He loves to climb to the top of the cat tree and look out the window. Panther thinks he has big cat skills. His favourite game is sneaking up on a toy and pouncing (very dramatically) on top of it. Panther is a funny kitten to sit back and watch as he plays. He loves to carry toys in his mouth and growls his (not at all scary) growl at his siblings if they want his toy. He has a lot of energy and would do best in a home where he has other pets to play with. He would also love to be adopted with his brother, Cougar, since they often wrestle and sleep together. When playtime is done, Panther expects to receive some rubs and some snuggles before settling down for a nap. He is easy about getting nails trimmed, tidy in his litter, and comfortable with children.

Cougar

DSH - 30 April 2020

Cougar was initially the most timid of the group. He has quickly learned to love people and now is just as affectionate and attention seeking as his siblings. Cougar looks to the other cats to decide if an unfamiliar situation is ok, so he would do best in a home with another cat, or would also love to be adopted with one of his siblings, especially Panther. Cougar will seek out your lap for his post playtime belly rubs and chin scratches, which he will insist on getting before his nap. Cougar loves a big wrestling match with his siblings, and he is very energetic while he plays, though he often abandons playtime to come to be pet. Cougar is comfortable with children and is tidy in his litter.

Jaguar

DSH - 30 April 2020

Jaguar’s signature move is to meow loudly and flop on to his back the minute anyone shows any interest in possibly rubbing his belly. Most of his day consists of playing hard, and looking for his next belly rub. Jaguar is very funny to watch while he plays. He often stretches up onto his back legs and waves his front arms around in an attempt to look tough. He is always up for a snuggle with his people when playtime is done. Jaguar is a very easygoing cat. He is less energetic than his siblings. He is good about getting nails trimmed, tidy in his litter, and comfortable with children.

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

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

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.
SplashSplash
Splash

Splash

DSH - 24 June 2019

Splash absolutely loves anything water related. She will jump in the shower with the water flowing, turn on a tap and she's there to investigate. Splash will also investigate anything that makes a sound, turn a blender on and she comes running and the vacuum is more entertainment for her. If she has no friends wanting to play, she will chase and leap at her tail, turning circles until she falls over. Splash enjoys viewing the world upside down and is happy to be held on her back and carried. Her nails are easily trimmed when she's had a good play and is tired. Splash doesn't know that she is different from people, if there is food anywhere she wants to taste it and she will eat a variety of raw vegetables. Her preferred sleep location is snuggled beside people, she is accustomed to having bedroom doors closed so her people can sleep. This is when she needs one of her sisters as they will happily sleep together and if awake early they play and people can sleep in. Splash does not venture outdoors.
SurfSurf
Surf

Surf

DSH - 24 June 2019

Surf doesn't know she is a cat, either that or she thinks people are cats? She loves everyone and nothing bothers her - any sound or movement and she comes running. She wants to be in your lap or in your arms, or eating your food. She loves fresh vegetables. Any open cupboard, refrigerator , closet or drawer and she's in it. Surf will protest to have her nails trimmed but a firm scruff and a "no" and she will behave. She is slightly dominant and the leader of the sisters. If she wants to be picked up and a person is close she has no problems jumping onto a shoulder. People in her path are just obstacles to be climbed or walked over. Surf will sit or sprawl at the door, people walking in, often have to step over her but she will not go outside.

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.

Choupette

DMH - August 16 2007

Choupette is a lovely easy-going lady. She is well behaved and does not jump onto kitchen counters and is clean with her food area. She is a not an over eater, although she will meow for her canned food. Her silky medium length coat requires daily brushing - she indicates when she’s had enough with a gentle nip. She will meow to interact with people because she enjoys their company without constantly expecting attention. Choupette prefers to lay beside people on a chair rather than in a lap . She is not adverse to being picked up. Choupette is a low energy cat who likes to play with small soft mice. She will chase shoe laces for fun too. Choupette arrived in the rescue as a declawed cat. She has no issues using a litter box. Her dental work is up to date - she has nice clean teeth! Choupette would like a quiet home - fast moving feet, loud noises and sudden activity startle her but she will return when she is called. Choupette would like to be the only cat in her new 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.
