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.

"Simon! Who are you yelling at?" "I'm yelling at all the people walking by, Finnegan. I want them to stop and come and see us. We really need our own forever home!" "Well ok, but why don't you just tell everyone about us? They don't need you shouting at them." "Ok fine then, I will. Ahem...ahem. Ok, listen up folks. I promise I won't yell anymore. I'm Simon and that's my brother Finnegan. We are almost a year old, so really, we're still kittens. I don't normally yell so much. We're actually kinda quiet. We're very gentle and love to play. Well, we're usually gentle - Finnegan didn't mean to break that toy, what's it called? Oh ya, Da Bird! Twice. Ooops. It's just that it's his favourite. We love our wet food too. Finnegan, what's your favourite kind?" "FISH!" "Ya, me too! Yummmm....it's SO good....Sorry, back to us. The nice lady at the adoption centre said that we're super sweet and we love other cats too! So that's an added bonus, right?" "You know how we came to be here? We were found all by ourselves on a construction site. We didn't like that at all. It was scary. But we went and stayed in a foster home with a really nice family. They took care of us until we came to the adoption centre." "So, what do you think? Do you want to meet us? I promise not to yell anymore...unless I'm yelling to tell everyone that we found our new home! We can't wait to meet you!"

A cat named Princess usually means there's a diva around. Get out the pink canopy bed and jeweled ornaments. A cat that is a tortoiseshell AND named Princess, you would think Diva, with a capital "D". Wow, this cat must have one major cattitude! Nope. Not this little Princess. Princess is a shy but sweet little tortie who is between two and three years old. When she feels comfortable with you she will share her playful side. At the adoption centre she is overwhelmed by the noises and other cats. She really loves to be petted in her cage or when she is on the cat tree however she is too shy to come out on her own. A little love will go a long way in helping this sweet girl come out of her shell. She is a gentle soul who deserves a loving, quiet home. She is fine with other cats but dogs might scare her. Older respectful children may be fine. Princess came to the rescue with another cat from a hoarding situation where they had both given birth. Princess' little kitten sadly did not survive but Princess was happy to help her friend and co-mothered the five kittens. All the kittens and her friend have been adopted and now it is her turn. Princess would love to be your little princess in her new forever home.

"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?

If you are looking for cuddlers... We're cuddlers! I'm Toushy and this is my brother Tippy. We are two really great cats. I'm gentle natured and I love rubbing my face into yours for kisses and to let you know I'm happy to see you once I get to know you. I love getting petted and carried so we can spend some quality cat time watching birds together. I love cat treats too. I'm a little reserved in the store but adjust well in a quieter home. My brother Tippy is as sweet as I am but is a little more shy in the noisy store with so many strangers. We love to curl up together and play spy vs spy and chase each other around when it's dark in the house. We are ok with other cats, but we're not sure about dogs. We're very close and have to be adopted together. We grew up in a home that had too many cats so they had to surrender us. It was sad leaving our mother and brothers and sisters, but at least we get to stay together forever. We sure hope you'll come and visit us and maybe even adopt us!

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!

Don't...Stop... the petting! Hi! My name is Nyla and there is nothing I love more that being petted! Ears, head, body, tummy...I coming back for more! I love a lot of other thing too like my catnip mouse, the feather flying toys and my wet cat food, but I love being petted more than anything! The only thing I'm not sure about is being picked up and carried. I am here with my sister Jasmine who is as sweet as I am but she's a bit more shy. We have been together for the past three years and we bonded so must be adopted together. Our owner had to surrender us when they had to take in another family member who was allergic to us so they had to find us a new home. We sure miss having a home of our own and a family that we can love that loves us back.

Hi, my name is Freya. Did you know that my name comes from the Viking goddess who was a Valkyrie and was known for love and beauty as well as war? Strange, I don't feel very warrior-like or a goddess. It's hard to feel powerful when I lost my home because my family brought in a kitten who I didn't like. They also had a baby so I guess at age two I was no longer the new and cute little thing, so I came to the rescue. My foster mom said I was a good little girl and very pretty. I started to feel better about myself and I really liked my foster mom. Too soon, I had to leave her to come to the adoption centre where she said I would find a home of my own. It was scary there at first with the cages and all the other cats. It was there I realized I don't like other cats at all. The volunteers told me not to worry and that I could go high up in the cat tree to stay away from the other cats. They played with me with a feather wand and I felt my goddess spirit returning. I thought I had found my forever home a little while ago but it didn't work out. They and I, realized that I didn't like children so I came back to the adoption centre. My goddess spirit left me and I was sad. I decided that I would not be disappointed again so my warrior spirit came to protect me. So sometimes when adopters come in, the volunteers warn them to be careful about touching me. I can't help it but sometimes when people pet me and I seem to like it, I then call on my warrior spirit to protect me from disappointment and so I then may swat or use my teeth to send them away. I wonder if there is someone out there who might see through my defence mechanism and teach me to trust and love again? I would so much like to have my goddess side return. All I need is a little patience, and a mature home where I am the only cat.

Say hello to Cruiser! This handsome fellow is Cruiser! Cruiser has super soft shiny black fur and is looking for all the lovin' and cuddling! He is approximately nine years old but still plays like a kitten. Cruiser loves toys and his favourites are anything on a string! He's a very friendly boy who is looking for his forever home where he can snuggle up beside you and be your best friend. Cruiser loves to hang out on your shoulder! A nice big sunny window to catch some rays and watch the squirrels and birds all day would be just perfect for him! Although Cruiser is missing most of his teeth, eating is not an issue for him and he loves his senior food. Cruiser would need a slow, careful introduction in a home with other cats. We're not sure how he is with dogs. For some unknown reason, Cruiser was abandoned at the veterinary clinic where he is currently hanging out. Fortunately for him, he was left at a vet clinic and not left outside to fend for himself. Cruiser would love to just "cruise" on in to your home and be part of your family forever! If you would like to meet Cruiser, please stop by and visit him at the Cat Hospital in Brampton, or you can fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

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.

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!

Hi, my name is Franka and I am 2 1/2 years old. The volunteers at the adoption centre say I am a sweet and gentle little girl. I guess that is why whenever a new arrival comes and is scared they put them with me. That's how I met my roommate and best friend Flopsy, who is two years old. I thought I was shy but I really have to look after this little girl. You'll see us curled up together a lot. Sometimes people don't realize there are of two of us in the bed, we blend so well together. I will come out of our cage and look around sometimes and find a quiet corner to lie in if possible. If someone has the feather wand out, I'll be there playing with it. Eventually I will go back to be with Flopsy because I don't want her to be alone too long. If someone is petting her, I'll wait because I know how much she loves that. We need someone who will be patient with us and let us develop trust in our own time. We are afraid of large open spaces so we would need to spend some time in a small room getting used to our new home. Our ideal home will have no dogs and no small children. I was rescued from a hoarding situation in Scarborough where there were 68 cats and one dog in a 2-bedroom apartment. Needless to say, my people skills need a little help as I lived most of my life with cats. Flopsy was found outside alone with her littermates before she was brought inside. Do you have a quiet home and enough love for the two us? We can't wait to find our new forever home, where we can spend the rest of our lives together.

Hello everyone! My name is Lily, and this is my sister Sabrina. Let me tell you a bit about us. We are 10 years old and I'm the one with the black nose. We are both declawed. I am very friendly and just love company. I love to follow you around to help you with whatever it is you're doing. I'm very curious and love to explore. I do this cutest little thing where I use my front paws to hold my back legs up so that I can clean my back paws and the fur on my back. Ok, so this might be because of my portly figure, but it's still cute. Sabrina is smaller than me and a bit more reserved, but she's still a friendly girl. She just doesn't like change and stress and will sometimes hiss and swat, so she needs a little extra time to adjust. Even though she doesn't like to be picked up, she loves being petted and likes to roll over for tummy rubs! She LOVES that - it makes her very happy. Did I mention that I love laps? So if Sabrina doesn't want to be on your lap, don't worry because I do! We both LOVE our food. Perhaps a little TOO much - now we have to eat diet food. But that's ok because we know it's best for our health and it will help me get my girly figure back. With a proper introduction, I think we'll be ok with other cats and dogs, but because Sabrina gets stressed with change, a home with only older, respectful children would be best. Unfortunately, we were surrendered when a family member moved into our house who was allergic. It's sad that we had to lose our home at our age, but we know we'll find a great new home together.

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/

** COURTESY POST ** This adorable pair is Addy & Avery. Addy is the cute black girl, and her brother Avery is the handsome white and black guy. They are eight months old and are typical kittens in every way! Addy & Avery love to sleep curled up together by foster mom's side in bed. While they are a little bit on the shy side, they are sure to come around in the right environment. They would do best in a mature environment without young kids. They get along well with other cats and will tolerate the dog in their foster home. Addy & Avery have been together since birth, so it is preferable that they be adopted together. If you would like to meet Addy & Avery, please contact their foster mom, Josee, directly at 905-501-9109 or 416-417-6555.

Is there a kind person out there who will love me? My name is Bergen and I am nine years old. At the adoption centre, people told me I was beautiful, but no one gave me love because I was afraid to accept it. I had lost the ability to trust people after my family gave me up. I was boarded for about a year and then given to the rescue. I would sometimes hiss, swat or growl when people approached me and the volunteers would say be careful, don't touch her. No one knows that I was really crying inside and that my heart was breaking. I would lay with my head down and my hopes shattered. It hurt so much to see others receive love and affection while I got so little. I pretended it didn't matter when all I really wanted was for someone to care for me. Someone to say I will love you and protect you from all the bad things. Just once for someone to say my name with softness and understanding. A little while ago I didn't feel well so I was taken out of the adoption centre away from all those other cats and put into something called a foster home. I had an entire room for myself and 'foster mom' said nice things to me. I felt safe and could it be, 'happy'? All of a sudden I felt a rumble in throat which 'foster mom' said was a purr and I showed her that I remembered how to play. I could snuggle and be nice. The foster lady said if I wished really hard I would find my own "home" which would be mine forever. So now I am wishing so hard my whiskers are twitching. All I want to hear is "Bergen, I'll try" that would make my heart lift. All I need is time and patience and knowing that someone does care. Will someone please just say "Yes, Bergen, will you be mine?". I really just need the chance to show you what a different cat I am outside of the adoption centre and in my own loving home, a quiet and mature home without children or other pets. I just need someone who understands that trust takes time and who will be patient with me. To that person, I promise I will give my whole heart and gratitude. If you think you could give me that home, or would like to meet me, please contact Ninth Life Cat Rescue at: info@ninthlifecatrescue.org or 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.

Mr. Higgins has been through so much in his 6 years of life. He was abandoned by his family and left out in the cold, scared and lonely. Eventually he was brought to Hamilton Animal Services, his face covered in scabs from street cats beating him up. For 2 months, Mr. Higgins waited in a cage hoping for someone to take him home. And then, one of our volunteers saw him. Fostering is never easy. Soon after his arrival, Mr. Higgins started scratching his ears until they bled. A visit to the vet confirmed that he had allergies so he was put on a special diet. Like many abandoned cats who do not know when their next meal might be, Mr. Higgins started eating and drinking a lot. Still foster mom sensed that something else was wrong. Another visit to the vet revealed that something he ate while outside had blocked his intestine and he was basically "bursting from the inside" because he was eating so much but it wasn't digesting. Surgery resolved this problem and Mr. Higgins is recuperating with his foster mom. However, futing the pre surgical tests, the vet discovered that Mr. Higgins has diabetes. Cats, like people, can live normal and long lives with diabetes. It can be successfully managed by insulin shots and checking blood sugar levels. Mr. Higgins had been through so much and his foster mom says "He is the sweetest boy in the world with not an aggressive bone in his body. He just wants to love and be loved. All I wish for him is a forever home. So I ask you to ask around to see if anyone is willing to adopt him along with his special diet and his insulin shots. Aw, wouldn't it be loverly?" Mr. Higgins is currently with his foster mom. If you are interested in adopting this sweet guy, please contact us at info@ninthlifecstrescue.org
