Hi everyone! I'm Twixx! I'm sweet as can be, just like the chocolate bar! I'm about six years old and have been told I have the cutest little face. Look at my ears - do you see the little tufts on them? Cute, right? Let me tell you one thing - I am SOOOO tired of having babies! Can you believe that I had four litters of kittens in just over a year? So done with that! I just want to relax, chill out and play on my own now. My favourite toys are long, dangly things on the wand. Feathers are great! You know what else I love? My food - I'm a really good eater. And of course, treats! Toss a few my way - they won't last long. I am a very gentle cat and you can pick me up easily. I loved to sleep on the couch beside my foster mom, in a big blanket. You would think that since I came from a house with way too many cats that I would like them, but I'm not really fond of them. I think because I've been around so many for so long, I just want to be your one and only princess. I love the company of people, so it would be great if my new home had someone home a lot to keep me company. As I mentioned already, I've had far too many babies and came from a house with far too many cats. I was a great mom but I really just want to go to my own forever home now where I can be the centre of attention and be totally pampered! I think I deserve it now. Do you have the perfect home I'm looking for? Please come by and visit. I'm really anxious to start my new life in my new home.

This lovely little lady is Tiffany! Tiffany is 15 months old and is a gorgeous grey tabby. Doesn't she have beautiful eyes? She's a petite little girl who still looks like a kitten. Tiffany is a very calm, shy girl who just LOVES other cats. She loved to run around at night getting into mischief with her foster kitty brother. He even taught her to climb into the kitchen cupboards when foster mom wasn't looking. She's shy with people, but just know that as long as you give her time to get used to her surroundings, she'll come around. Once she got comfortable in her foster home, Tiffany would sleep on her foster mom's bed. While she might not love to be held too long, she's a gentle girl who can be picked up easily. Tiffany loves to play with her favourite toys, especially the feather wand and the laser light! Tiffany must go to a home with at least one other cat friend. She is also good with dogs and kids. Still basically a kitten herself, Tiffany was surrendered with her litter of kittens from a house that had too many cats. Tiffany was a great mom to her babies and now that they have found their forever homes, it's Tiffany's turn to find her forever home where she can play all day with other cat friends. It's time for Tiffany to continue to be a kitten herself.

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 😉 So, all of this... you would see that right away if you met me in a home. I am in an adoption centre with all the other cats and I am not happy here at all. But this is the best place for me to have people come to see me and know I need a home. Can I ask that you try to see through my nerves? Look how happy I am in my pictures! 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!

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.

I am a very sweet five year old boy who loves his people. I warm up rather quickly to new people - especially if they give me Temptations treats, or brush my fur - I LOVE to be brushed. Have you noticed how soft and shiny my fur is? I make sure my foster mommy brushes my fur every night so I stay this handsome. When I'm done being brushed, I start nibbling on my brush and want to play. I love all sorts of toys - wand toys, the laser light, and catnip mice. During the day, my foster family hears me chasing my mice around the room - I like to hide them under the dresser for my foster mom to find. When I've had enough of chasing mice, my favourite spot to nap is on top of the dresser. I love attention from my humans, and demand love often. When I'm happy to see you, I trill, and you can't miss my big rumbling purr when I'm happy. I love to be scratched around my head and neck, but while you're loving me, I would prefer to sit beside you rather than on your lap. I don't mind if you lift me onto a bed or into a carrier, but I would rather not to be picked up and carried. I would enjoy having a cat friend in my new home, especially a calm older cat like myself. I wouldn't mind having kids in my home to love me, but my foster mom says they should be over five years old and respectful of my boundaries. I have come far in learning that hands aren't toys to nibble on, but sometimes I still give a little love nibble when I get excited. I came to the rescue from a colony in Hamilton, but at some point in my past I had a home. I don't miss being outside one bit - the indoor life is a life of luxury! I'm happy to look out the window and watch the birds in the tree, but I'm a bit scared of the outside noises and won't sit in an open window. My purrfect family has someone who is able to spend quality time with me every day, playing with me and helping me keep my fur soft and shiny with lots of brushing. Perhaps if you work from home, I could be your secretary and best friend? Are you the purrfect family I'm looking for? If you think you could give me the home that I so deserve, or would like to meet me, 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/

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. 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/

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
