  • Special NeedsPrefers home without small kids
Faith & Tuxie are the most special pair of sisters you'll ever meet! They are approximately four months old and are the best of friends. Found together in a backyard by themselves, Faith is a special needs kitten, her sister Tuxie has no health issues at all. Faith is a such a special kitten! Despite having a congenital defect in her spine and left hind leg, it does not slow her down. Shhhhh......please don't tell Faith she's different because she honestly doesn't know. She came into foster a four week old orphan and from day one was eating and drinking on her own and somehow knew how to use the litter box already! Faith has never had a problem keeping up with her sister Tuxie when they play, wrestle or chase each other. She loves to climb her cat post, run and play like any other kitten. As far as getting around the house, she has managed extremely well. She has mastered going up and down hardwood stairs, she can jump off of couches, chairs, beds and other mid-level surfaces. She can't jump very high but she still finds her way up to surfaces she wants to explore by using the claws on her front paws and working hind leg to grip and climb. Having a stool beside these surfaces to help her get up is very helpful for her. When Faith sees her favourite humans she runs so fast towards them meowing until she is at their feet then spins in a circle to let them know she wants to be pet or picked up. Tuxie is an energetic girl who loves to play. She goes crazy for wand type toys, laser pointers and loves tossing her fur mice in the air to entertain herself. She has an outgoing personality and doesn't shy away from anything. Tuxie takes very special care of her sister grooming her and looking through the house to find her when she meows. Tuxie loves to cuddle and sleep right next to her humans. She has a sweet meow but she is more of a twiller and chirps like a pigeon to communicate. When Tuxie burns off her kitten energy she is so cuddly and is the most gentle girl! Faith would do best in a home without very young children who might play too rough or drop her accidentally. Tuxie would do well in a busy home or in a quieter environment, where she can steal the show. There was a five year old female cat in their foster home and they loved to chase each other throughout the house. Faith has seen several vets. And while she manages very well at her small size, there is the concern that as she grows the defect could cause more nerve issues in the area and affect her mobility, but only time will tell. It's unknown at this point. Faith will need a special home that understands her current needs and requirements, as well as her long term medical needs. While we would love to see both girls be adopted together as they are very close and Tuxie takes care of Faith, it may be possible to adopt them separately. If you think you could give Faith & Tuxie the special home they deserve, or would like to meet them, please contact Ninth Life Cat Rescue at (905) 301-3532, email: info@ninthlifecatrescue.org or fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

Hi everyone! I'm very happy to meet you. My name is Sabrina and I am only one year old. I think I'm very pretty, don't you? I think my shiny black fur is beautiful and don't you love my eyes? I love to play with all the volunteers at the adoption centre. They all say how good I am. Oh, and I really LOVE it when they give me treats. Not too many though - since I've been here, I've gained a few extra pounds. I need to keep my girlish figure. The volunteers think I would do best in a mature home. And while I would love to be an only cat to have all of your attention, I'm sure I'd be fine with other cats with a slow introduction. I came here all the way from a place call "up North". The shelter where I was had way too many cats, so they thought my friends and I would do better and get adopted quickly here in this place called Oakville. It certainly was a long car ride to get here, that's for sure! But so far, all of my friends that I came here with have been adopted and I'm still waiting. I'm really don't understand why I'm the only one still here, but I sure am ready for my own forever home. Even though the volunteers are great and talk to me, I'm getting really sad being here for this long. I don't know why people say black cats are harder to adopt - it's easy - just come and get me. I'm right here waiting for you. Ya, kittens are cute, and so are those fancy schmancy calico type kitties, but let me tell you - black cats rule! And haven't you heard? Black goes with everything!

  • Domestic Long Hair
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Silky, soft, and positively stunning this brother and sister duo are one year old babies who start out shy but their love of play and other cats will win your heart. Once Hickory and Duncan get to know and trust you, and their foster mom can attest to this, they are the sweetest pair of love muffins. Hickory will seek you out for snuggles. Duncan loves nothing more than to be with a cat friend and play with feathery wands. When picked up, Duncan does his best ragdoll impersonation, going limp and just hanging off your arm. Rescued from a cat colony in Keswick, these lovely babies were first more comfortable with other cats than people. With time came trust as well as the love of play. Duncan still takes a bit of a back seat to his sister and you can see that his confidence is not quite there by the way he carries his tail down with the cute white tip curled up. You will also notice that little Duncan has a bit of a weepy eye. His tear duct gets blocked and although surgery was done, he will always have a bit of a discharge. Getting him into his own home and out of a cage close to his litter box would help that a lot. Besides, it's just another way to tell him apart from his gorgeous sister. Both Duncan and Hickory would just love to find a forever home where another cat lives to show them the ropes. A mature home with a friendly feline would be just purrfect!

Enter the adoption centre and put your bag on the bench. Who is the first cat to check it out? Our lovely three year old, Peggy! Now Peggy doesn't just sniff the bag, she crawls right inside! You know, just in case you have those Temptation treats that she loves so much. Then she will curl up on top, hoping that when you take your bag, you will take her too. Peggy is a very smart kitty and quickly learned where the treats were kept, how to open the drawer and snag a bag, ripping open a hole in seconds. Guess you could call her a real "cat burglar". Not too many treats for her, though. She may have put on a pound or two while here - but nothing a bit of exercise won't fix! Peggy loves to play with a wand toy. If you want a lovable lap cat, Peggy's your girl. There is something calming and soulful about Peggy that draws you in if you take the time to notice her. She has a low key temperament, taking life as it comes and being thankful for the smallest of things. Peggy gets along with other cats but she would be just as happy being your one and only. Peggy would be best with adults or older, calm children. She does not like little kids who move too fast, poke or prod her. She would be perfect for a more mature home, where someone is home often to keep her company. She came from a shelter way up north, turned in when her owners could no longer afford a cat. However, she must have been treated kindly, as she is the sweetest little girl. So what do you think? Would you like to meet this adorable treat stealing, lovable lap cat? She'll be certain to steal your heart too! If you would like to meet Peggy, please stop by and visit her at Oakville PetSmart or you can fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Presenting the story of Mystic & Rocky. It's not quite a love story, but rather the story of two best friends who complete each other and give each other confidence and bravery. Mystic is a petite five month old kitten and Rocky is nine months old. Mystic is the shyer of the two and loves to watch. She will join in and play with the others, after she feels comfortable. Mystic LOVES catnip...maybe a little bit too much...it makes her very silly! Although this is the only time she likes to be touched, we are hopeful that in time, in the right house, she will learn to love it because she loves the comfort of being inside. Mystic enjoys Jackson Pollock's art and tries to recreate it with her water (consider yourself warned). Rocky is always the first to join in and is very curious and always watching. He just wants to be around all the people, all the time. Rocky can be petted, but just don't move too fast - it frightens him. He is a very gentle boy and a real nosey parker! He wants to know what you're doing all the time. Rocky just LOVES to play and run so much! Rocky is more of the leader and Mystic will follow. They both love to sleep on the bed with you and they are both very fond of other cats. Mystic was trapped outside when she was much younger. She went to live in a foster home, but she resisted love and attention. Rocky was found living outside by himself. He went to live in the same foster home as Mystic. Rocky was more open to love and eventually went to the adoption centre without Mystic, as she was not ready. Unfortunately, Rocky did not do well. He was terrified and wouldn’t move or eat. We are sure he desperately missed his best friend. He went back to his foster home and back to Mystic. They became even better friends, as they comfort and support each other. We now know that they are inseparable and must be adopted together. Please stop by and meet this lovely pair today! As long as they are together, they are sure to flourish in the perfect home. If you would like to meet Mystic & Rocky, please stop by and visit them at Etobicoke PetSmart or you can fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

"Look at me, look at me!" My name is Figaro and I am two years old. The volunteers at the adoption centre say my name suits me because I'm a real character. Hmmm, I wonder what that means? Wow did you just see that feather wand? I need to get that now. Wait, there's a string, no a cricket, no the feather...I'm back. Will you pet me? Will you give me some treats??? Yikes, there's another cat, I better go bug her and make her swat me. I like to see her get all hissy. She hates me, you know? I don't care, it's fun to annoy her. I love playing with feather wands and well, just playing. After all, I am a young guy. I love people but I am shy to start. I don't like to be picked up and if you come at me to pick me up, I may back away. But if you say my name and come slowly to pet me, it makes me very, very happy. Oh, oh. I just got a time out for bugging the other cats. Darn. Well I guess since I'm in the penalty box I can tell you more about me. I was living in a home with a bunch of cats. I really didn't like all those cats around me but at least I had a home. My owner became sick so she took me to the vet. I was scared because I thought I was going to get shots. The owner mentioned to the vet that she couldn't keep me so she wanted to "put me down". I didn't know what that meant but the vet seemed worried and so I got worried too. Then the vet mentioned something about a rescue and he was relieved when she said yes so that made me feel better too. Then I found myself with a 'foster mom' who played with me and gave me food and I wasn't surrounded by so many cats. I cuddled with her in the big bed every night. Eventually she said it was time for me to find my permanent home, so I was brought to this adoption centre. The volunteers are great except when they give me time outs which happens too often. Not my fault! I really don't like other cats and I bug them, so I'll need to be the only pet in your home. I'd love to have some older, respectful children to play with! Times up, I'm out again. Off to play and see what I can do next. Won't you please come and see me?

Hi! My name is Sky. I am a beautiful nine month old tuxedo cat that loves to play with all my furry squeaky mice or chase all the feather wand toys. I do my best to entertain you when I do. I am a bit of a chatterbox and I'll do anything to get your attention... I just love lots of attention! Ohhh... and that catnip stuff, I absolutely love it too!! I have to confess that I'm a little bit stressed in-store as I am VERY choosy about other cats and there are so many other cats here that it makes me a little grumpy when I see them. If you can just understand that, you will see that out of sight, out of mind applies to me! I am a completely different happy girl when I'm on my own with you and I don't need to put on my defensive front. I would be wonderful being a spoiled princess in your home. I'm ok being picked up, but not for too long as I am a busy girl with things to do! I would probably be better with older children too that don't want to carry me all the time. I may be ok with a small friendly dog like the small friendly dog I got along with growing up. I would sure like to find a home and get away from all these other cats!

My name is Jojo and I am three years young. I am a super sweet, affectionate and cuddly girl. I love to chase my fuzzy toy balls and play with the feather wand. I don't ask for much. Please can I share the bed with you? Oh... and do you have a sunny window... those are my favourite! Well, let's not forget my wet food and treats. A lady has to eat 😉 I love kids!! During my current stay, chilling' in a foster home, my foster mom has found I LOVE the company of gentle kids who want to play with me! See, I had a home recently with the loveliest lady and her 10 year old daughter, I was SO happy. But the lady didn't know she was allergic. She tried for months but it got so bad her health was not good. The lady and the daughter were heartbroken, crying so much. They got to see what a fun and sweet girl I am! If you meet me at the store and don't see this, they will tell you all about me. Just ask the volunteers! I would like to be your one and only pet. What more do you need? Please, I am such a young girl to still not have my forever home and my sunny window. Jojo is chilling in a foster home for a couple weeks before she comes back to Etobicoke Petsmart. If you would like to arrange a meeting, please fill out an application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/ and we can arrange it! 🙂

Oh hey! Nice to meet you. My name is Missy and I'm 11 years old and looking for my forever home. Don't you think I'm pretty? I think so. I'm a social girl and I just LOVE scratches behind my ears. Do you like my nice, svelte figure? You see, when I arrived, I was very obese. My little legs were having trouble holding up my body. I think my previous family thought the only way to show me love was to feed me. I would have just as much enjoyed a hug or two, but it's ok now. I went into foster care and my foster mom put me on diet and I've lost a lot of weight. Trust me, I'm MUCH happier now. I'm still a wee bit of a chunky monkey and my head might look a bit small for my body - but it's ok - we're still working on getting those last few love pounds off of me and I'm much healthier. There's just more of me to love! I do like to play, and when I eat or play I make the cutest little growling sounds. Don't worry - I'm not angry - they're my happy sounds. I really don't like other cats invading my space, so I'd prefer to be the only pet in your home. A mature home would be best too, as my new owners will have to know how to maintain my diet and be able to lift me. I was surrendered to the rescue when my family said they couldn't take care of my anymore. That's sad, because I am an older gal and needed some help to lose weight. But it's ok. My foster home was great and I know my new home will be great too!

Dear nice cat rescue people, I was saying to myself just this morning, "Baby," I said, "Baby, you know what you need? You need a person all your own." So I am writing this note to you, because apparently that's the kind of thing you do - find nice homes for lovable, slightly temperamental kitties who are...I shudder to type this...LAPLESS. That's right: I have no lap to call my own. Could you please find someone to give me theirs? While I love all the attention I'm receiving at the adoption centre, you know what I really need? A home of my own! By myself. No other cats. No dogs. No kids. That's not too much to ask is it? Once I get to know you and have time to learn to trust you, I can be sweet and affectionate. I'm only six years old, curious and love my catnip. I just need some time to adjust to a new home and new people, but that's not so bad, is it? Do you see what I'm reduced to? Cuddling with a STUFFED ANIMAL instead of a warm, breathing, can-opening, treat-dispensing, cat-toy-wielding, real, live human person to call my very own! Nice cat rescue person, you need to fix this problem for me IMMEDIATELY. It's not my fault I ended up here. I was surrendered by my owner because they had a bad time and lost their home. I wasn't allowed to go with them to their temporary home, so they had to let me go. So you see, nice cat rescue person, it's about time I found a home of my own. Now. While l love hanging out with all the nice cat rescue people at the adoption centre, it's time for me to move on. So I would really appreciate it if you can get on it right away. Purrs and head bumps, Baby PS - If you would like to meet me, stop by Burlington PetSmart on Brant St. or you can fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

This stunning calico girl is Mavis! Mavis is approximately four years old. A shy, timid girl, Mavis is not much for playing, but she loves her Elmo toy! She is very attached to Elmo and will sleep with him every night. Mavis is looking for a loving person or family who will be extremely patient and who will have time to work with her as she learns to trust humans. Once Mavis gets to know you, she loves her belly rubbed and purrs quietly. Mavis does not like to have her back end touched and while she will not bite, she may hiss or swat as a warning that she needs space. Mavis is FIV+, but please don't let this scare you away from this beautiful girl. FIV+ cats have the same life expectancy as any other cat; they just need to be kept indoors and away from other sick animals due to their slightly weaker immune systems. Mavis would benefit from a quiet home, perhaps a small condo or apartment with a room of her own where she can't hide, as she will need time to adjust. Mavis has made progress in her foster homes since she has been with us, but she will need an experienced adopter who has had experience dealing with feral or semi-feral cats. Mavis came to us as a feral from a small well-managed colony. Mavis gave birth to two litters before she was trapped and spayed. Mavis was the only cat in her colony who would interact with the colony caregiver, and would often sit at the back door and stare inside! Mavis will need a very special home with a family that will allow her the time and patience she needs to get to familiar with her new home and get comfortable with new people. Is that home with you? This girl needs a second chance to live her new life indoors. If you think you could give Mavis the home that she so deserves, or would like to meet her, please contact Ninth Life Cat Rescue at (905) 301-3532, email: info@ninthlifecatrescue.org or fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/
