If I had one wish this year, it would be to find a forever home for Zena and I. My name is Meadow and Zena is my 18 month old best friend. I am a super loveable and friendly, cuddly 22 month old girl. I like to greet all the volunteers and hang out on the cat tree with all the other cats here at the store. I love watching birds through the window and playing with my cat toys. I was also a pretty good foot warmer in foster and liked to lay at the foot of the bed each night. All the volunteers have been helping me pick out an outfit for Christmas this year. What do you think of my Santa Paws collar? Zena is my tiny best friend that reminds me of my kittens. She is a little shy so I watch over her and help her with her confidence. She is very, very sweet and loves chin and neck rubs. When she gets to know you she purrs up a storm and rolls on her back for tummy rubs. She said it's too cold outside these days so just wants to curl up with her scarf and stay in bed. Zena is a tiny cat that likes her little pillow fortress in the store so she feels like a sweet little princess. I think she would love snuggling under the covers in bed with you too. We both love our cat treats, and the wet cat food treat each day. We bonded while we were recovering in foster and since we are the best of friends, we must be adopted together. We both get along with other cats, but since Zena is so shy, we want to stay away from dogs. I was rescued from a farm where my previous family abandoned me when I came home pregnant. I took great care of my three kittens and they have all found good homes so now it's my time. Zena was rescued from a cat colony where she appeared one day pregnant at just 6-8 months old herself. Her kittens have also been adopted so it's her time too. We are really looking forward to finding our new forever home together! If you are interested in adopting us, we will be waiting to snuggle and purr with you at the PetSmart Burlington at 1200 Brant street location or you can fill out an application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

Can't decide if you want a long or short hair cat? Not sure if you want black or white? Now you don't have to! Sly & Jack are the perfect pair - one of each, stunning tuxedos! Sly & Jack are a six month old brother & sister pair. Sly is a short hair beauty, while Jack has gorgeous long hair, which he loves to have brushed. Sly is quiet at first, but don't let that fool you, she is an energetic girl who doesn't put up with any nonsense from her brother. These two both love watching the birds from the window and observing the outdoor world, from the safety of the indoors. Once comfortable in your home, they are sure to show you how playful and fun they can be! Jack will show you how he loves to be rewarded with treats. Because they are so close and Sly relies on her brother for comfort and to feel safe, they must be adopted together. Sly & Jack came to us after they were rescued from under a deck. Their brother and sister had been rescued previously, and fortunately, the homeowner contacted us again when Sly & Jack appeared. Now that you don't have to decide between long or short hair, black or white, you must come and meet Sly & Jack!

Pardon me, but did I hear you say you're looking for a very special orange male tabby? One who is totally awesome? One who is about five years old, past the naughty kitten stage, but still acts like a kitten? One who is very playful, yet very calm? One who is loving? Caring? Loves cuddles? Well, do I know the perfect cat for you! It's me! My name is Vixie and I am all of the above! And, in addition to all of the above, I just love people! I wait at the door, or run as soon as I hear it open, to greet my foster people. I'm not scared of anything and I don't have a bit of aggressiveness in me. I'm a lover, not a fighter! Did I hear you say you were looking for a cat that gets along with other cats? Well, guess what? That's me! My best friend is the other cat in my foster home. Dogs? Sure, just give me a bit of time to get used to them (they sniff and slobber, you know) and I'll be fine with them. Are you looking for a cat that's going to sleep right next to you and cuddle wherever you are? Once again - ME! I'm not sure how I ended up at Animal Services as a stray. Clearly, I'm so awesome, I must have had a family at some point. But luckily, the kind folks at the rescue saw my handsome face, recognized my awesomeness, and took me right away to my foster home. So, since I've matched all the criteria on your list, come and get me. I think you must be just as awesome as me and we're a match made in heaven. I can't wait to meet you! I'm still hanging out, being awesome, at my foster home. If you want to meet me, just contact the folks at the rescue at (905) 301-3532, email: info@ninthlifecatrescue.org or fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/ and they'll hook us up!

Please say hello to Seraphina & Eva Marie! Not only are these sisters stunningly beautiful, they are also two of the nicest kittens you will ever have the opportunity to meet!

They race around the adoption centre at full speed. Seraphina & Eva Marie are full of enthusiasm and always happy as can be. These girls are both super friendly, with Eva Marie being slightly more outgoing than her sister. When they eventually wear out from playing, Eva Marie will love to sit with you. Their foster home had a dog and they are fine with other cats. Seraphina & Eva Marie are the inseparable and must be adopted together. Seraphina and Eva Marie were born in a back yard. They were rescued and spent time in their foster home, before coming to the adoption centre. We all know that black cats rule, so what could be better than a pair of black cats? You can't go wrong with these stunning sisters, who will be bring love and joy to any home.

Hi people! What's up? My name is Rufus. But you can call me Ruffy, if you like. I am four years old. Do you like my long, flowing fur? I absolutely love having it brushed. It feels SO good. I like to rub up against your legs while you pet me, so some of my gorgeous fur may end up on your pants - but it's all good right? You're a cat person - you understand. My favourite toy? The wand toy! It's lots of fun! I don't really like to be picked up, but I like to sit near you. I like it when you sing to me too. I'm what they call "hand shy". Can you just let me smell your hand first before you touch me? I get spooked easily and I don't like a lot of commotion. It might take me a bit of time to trust you, but it will come as long as you are patient with me. I eat special wet & dry food called "urinary", but you can get it at your vet. I don't like dogs, but I might be ok with a submissive female cat. I seem to prefer females to male people too. An adult only home would be best for me. Can you believe someone left me outside to fend by myself? I had no one to brush my fur or sing to me! A nice person found me and fed me until the rescue could take me. Now if I can only find my own forever home with someone who will be patient with me until I get used to them, that would be the absolute best thing ever!

This adorable two year old sister pair is Boots & Nala! Super friendly and loving, they are also VERY talkative! Boots loves to follow her people around and will be your shadow. Nala loves all the attention and will cuddle up with you to fall asleep. These girls will do anything for food and they know exactly when meal time is. They know where the food is stored and are clever enough to open bags, so you might want to hide it away! Multi talented Boots has learned to sit and is working on shaking a paw - all for the love of food. While Nala loves to climb, Boots loves to sit in the sink and will keep you company while you relax in the tub. Boots & Nala are the ultimate greeters every time the doorbell rings or front door is open. Open drawers and cupboards are fair game - they LOVE to sit in any open drawers. Boots & Nala love to bring their people things at night - toys, blankets, whatever they have handy! They love to play and are quite the little characters, who are sure to keep you amused. You won't need a TV subscription as these girls are all the entertainment you will need! They have been exposed to other cats, so with proper introductions they should be fine. They do not appear to get along with dogs. As they have been together their entire lives and are the best of friends, Boots & Nala must be adopted together. Boots & Nala were originally surrendered to us when they were 10 months old. They were then adopted together, but sadly, due to a change in their owner's personal life and through no fault of their own, they had to be returned. This loving pair deserves to find their purrmanent home where they can entertain their new family forever. They are sure to make the sweetest companions to any home. If you think you would like to meet Boots & Nala, 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/

My name is Maizy! I was named Maizy for the colour of fur. My foster mom says I have the softest fur she's ever felt - and that it feels like velvet! Ok, she can call it whatever she wants, as long as I'm getting pets and scratches. I LOVE scratches behind my ears. As soon as you start, I'll start purring for sure! I might be a bit shy when I first meet you, but it won't take long for me to come around. And once I get to you know a bit more, I'll roll over for belly rubs - they feel soooo good. Apparently, I make the best biscuits too! I'm a chatty, petite girl and have the cutest little meow. Do you know I'm only one year old? Ya, still just a kitten myself. I've been busy so far in my short life, so I haven't had much time to play with toys. I'm just learning about them, but I can tell you that I love that laser light toy - boy I can chase that thing all over the place. Oh and if you throw me one of those catnip pillow things, that would be just fantastic! I love my scratching post - I use it daily to keep my nails looking their best. You can pick me up, even though I'm not a huge fan. I'm starting to discover that the couch where the people sit is pretty comfy! I'm getting closer and closer to foster mom's lap. I don't think I've ever met a dog and I kinda hiss at the other cats in my foster home, but that's just because I'm not used to them yet. There were lots of other cats in my first home, so I'm sure if you take your time introducing us, I'd be fine with them. I really like company, so if you're home a lot during that day, that would be a definite bonus. What have I been up to in my short life so far? Well, I was rescued from a house that had way too many cats by Animal Services. Unfortunately, it was too late. I was already pregnant. The rescue people came and took me from Animal Services to my foster home, where I had five big, healthy kittens. My kittens have all found their forever homes and now it's my turn to get to continue to be the kitten I'm just learning to be. Well that's my story. I'd love to hear yours!

Luca & Luna are a bonded five year old brother and sister pair who would like to clear up a few misconceptions about black cats with you. Some people think that black cats are bad luck. How can having the most lovable, snuggly pair of cats be bad luck? Having the opportunity to have a pair of lap cats to love is not bad luck - it's the best luck ever! Luca & Luna are the sweetest, kindest pair of cats that you will be fortunate enough to bring into your lives. They both love to be around their human and enjoy snuggling up on the couch and relaxing. They like to play with fuzzy toys but love to be pet and brushed much more. Luca & Luna absolutely LOVE their catnip! While they can be shy around new people, they warm up quickly. Luna & Luca love their humans soooo much they would prefer to have you all to themselves, so a home with no other pets would probably be best. They did have a bit of bad luck themselves when they had to be surrendered when their family could no longer care for them. But they know their new forever family is out there! In many countries, having a black cat cross your path is thought to be good luck - imagine how much luck you can have when TWO black cats cross your path!

Cuddly - check! Sweet - check! Loving - check! Friendly - check and double check! If you're looking for the perfect cat that checks off all these boxes on your checklist, then you must meet Polly! Sweet Polly is approximately two years old and was sweet and cuddly from the minute she arrived at her foster home. Polly absolutely craves affection and attention from all around her. Polly follows her foster mom everywhere and is the first in bed at night, waiting for snuggles and cuddles. Polly is highly motivated by treats and even brought some to bed one night. She loves any toys that move! Polly is always social and friendly with anyone she meets. She can be happily carried around, pet and cuddled. She is quite happy sleeping the day away at the top of her cat tree. Polly is a very confident cat who will let the other animals in her foster home know it. She will be fine living with cat friendly dogs or cats. She would also do well with a nice family with young kids. Being the social butterfly that she is, Polly would love a home where someone is home a lot as she just loves being with her people. Polly was found under a deck, with a nasty burn on her head, starving and pregnant. She was brought into animal services by the nice lady that found her, and from there made her way to us. Polly delivered five very cute and adorable kittens, all who looked just like her! Her burn has healed, but left a small scar that is nothing to be concerned about. Her kittens have all been adopted and now she wants nothing more than to find her own forever home. Polly will be the most perfect addition to any family home. If you think you could give Polly 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/

Am I asking for too much to think someone out there may be able to love me? My name is Bergen and I am 9 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. Sometime 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'? I showed I could play and be nice. Unfortunately the foster couldn't keep me and since then I have been with 3 other fosters. I just get to feel safe and then I have to move. I also had to go to the vet and have some teeth taken out. While that sort of upset me at first, I realized afterwards that I was feeling so much better. It really improved my mood a lot and I could be friendly again. I have been with the rescue now for over a year so that means I have been without a real home for over 2 years. Please, I really want a permanent place with someone to love only me. I am afraid of children because they tormented me in my first home so I would really like a home with a quiet older person who will understand me and have patience. Won't you please help me?

We'd like to introduce you to Savvy! Savvy is seven years old and has stunning tabby markings and the cutest little freckle on her nose. Her fur is so soft and silky - just wait until you feel it! If you look closely, when she's sitting, you can see her heart! Despite being seven years old, Savvy is incredibly athletic and just loves to play. Her favourite toys, you ask? Why the little feathered catnip mice, of course! Savvy appreciates attention and likes to hear your voice when you speak to her as you pet her. One of her favourite things to do is taste test all the wet food as it's being served to everyone. Savvy is not a big fan of other cats, so she prefers her meals by herself. When she's alone, you can see how relaxed she can be. When she first arrived at the adoption centre, it was not a pleasant experience for her, as she had never been exposed to other cats, and would often climb to the top of the cages, where she hoped no one would come near her. As such, it is best that she goes to a quiet, adult only home, where she can be the only cat. Savvy was surrendered to the rescue when her family moved. She went from being someone's one and only pet, to having to compete with many other cats for attention. You can imagine how hard it's been for her to adjust. Savvy would just love to be your one and only and find her new forever home! Won't you come and visit her?

Meet Thelma & Louise! Thelma is a lovely, three year old brown tabby and Louise is a one year old gorgeous white and grey girl. Thelma and Louise are mother and daughter! Thelma is very affectionate and loves to lay with you in bed and gaze out the window. But don't let that fool you - she loves to play! Thelma constantly carries around her toy mouse and has no problem entertaining herself. She can be shy at first with other cats, but quickly comes around and loves to frolic and play with everyone. Thelma is vocal, with the softest, high pitched meow you've ever heard. Thelma would do well in a home either by herself or with other cats. Louise is the definition of "if curiosity killed the cat". She investigates everything, gets into everything, and she's an all around inquisitive girl. She is full of energy and LOVES to play, especially with some of her new kitty friends in her foster home. Louise would do really well in a home with another cat who is also playful. She might not do well with older cats, as she may annoy them with her energy. Louise loves humans, loves being held, will fall asleep when you cradle her in your arms and gives kisses. Thelma & Louise were surrendered through no fault of their own, when their family could no longer care for them. Thelma & Louise would love to stay together, but it's not absolutely necessary. They will be adopted from home, as Louise would not do well in the confined spaces of the adoption centre.

Look into my big green eyes...you want to feed me some nice delicious wet cat food don't you? Hi there! My name is Marshall. I am a healthy one year old guy who will do pretty much anything for wet cat food. Dry food is ok but I REALLY, REALLY live for wet cat food! I meow and rub up against you the moment I hear that can open! I will follow you anywhere and jump anywhere just to get my face into that food dish! I can be a little vocal at breakfast and dinner time too if you make me wait, so how about you just don't keep me waiting? I adjust quickly to new people and places and love being petted. I'm not crazy being picked up and I'm not what you'd call a lap cat, so a home with adults or older children would suit me best. I am very territorial around other cats, especially when it comes to food, so I would be best as an only cat. I'm not sure how I feel about dogs. They'll probably want to eat my food. I was rescued from the streets by a nice lady who saw me outside in the hot weather dying of thirst and exhausted from the heat. She gave me water and fed me and realized I was starving. She tried to see if I had a home with no success so called around to see who could help me and that’s how I ended up here. I am a worldly guy from being left to live on the street where I never knew where my next meal would come from which is why I love food so much. So to recap, I like food, food & more food. How about we get together to discuss me over a meal?

Me too." "Do you think it's because I was so scared and shy when we first came here?" "I think that's probably why, and we really weren't quite ready. But we certainly are ready now. We should tell everyone how far you've come since we first got here. Ya, maybe you used to be really scared and hide, but look at you now! You love to come out and play. And you're playing with toys now. Ok, so you're still shyer than me, but that's ok - you're getting so much better. It's ok that you like to watch for a little while before you jump in and play, at least you're playing now. We should tell everyone how much you love catnip - you make me laugh with how silly you get when you have catnip. It's SO great that you let the volunteers give you pets now. They really do love us." "Yes, you're right Rocky - I have come a long way, haven't I? I should also tell the people that you're my very best friend and you make me feel safe, ever since we met in our foster home. They should probably know that you are very curious and always want to be the first one to investigate what's going on and to play. Oh, but maybe I shouldn't tell them how many of those "Da bird" toys you've destroyed. You're so silly! But it's ok - you have so much fun with them. You're such a goofball - always running around. I'll let them know too that you like to be around people and love getting pets, as long as they move slowly." "Tee hee... ya, I do like to run and play! Why not? We're still kittens - we aren't even one year old yet. We should be running and playing. Do you think our new family will have those Inaba Churu treats? We should tell them how much we love them." "Oh, but remember how scared we were when we were separated that one time? We have to tell the people that we have to go to our new home together. You're my best friend and I don't know what I'd do without you." "Ok Mystic, let's wish on that star together! If we wish hard enough, I know our wish will come true and we will find our new home soon!"

Introducing Foxy! Foxy is an absolutely gorgeous, two year old torbie. Did you notice her beautiful eyes? The orange shaded tip of her tail resembles a fox's brush - hence the name! Foxy is a petite girl, but she loves her food and enjoys playing fetch with her treats. Foxy is as playful as a kitten. Her favourite toy is the laser light - she is fascinated by it and endlessly tries to catch it in her paws. Another one of her favourite toys is the "cat dancer". What cat doesn't love the cat dancer? One of her favourite places to spend time is right by the patio door, where she is on high alert for birds, chipmunks and the endlessly entertaining antics of squirrels. She can spend hours just watching what's going on outside. Foxy is not fond of being picked up and while she shows an affectionate nature, she's not a lap cat. Not yet anyway, but that may change over time in the right home. Foxy grew up with other cats, so it is possible she would be fine with another cat around the same age. Foxy was rescued from a hoarding situation. Unfortunately, she had three litters in less than a year. Such a sad fate for such a young cat. However, she is now spayed and fortunately, will never have to have kittens again. It's now time for this Foxy lady to find her own forever home, with the perfect family who will allow her all the time and patience she needs to settle in. Foxy will probably need a couple of weeks to settle into her new home. Is this home with you? Do you have a nice big window for her to watch the world go by? If so and you 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/

Hi my friends! My name is Charlie. I am eight years old and very affectionate. I just melt my foster mom's heart when I stretch up onto her shoulder and give her lots of kisses in her ear and on the top of her head. Can you give me a little scratch under my chin? Ya, right there - that's the spot. I LOVE having my chin and neck scratched. Do you see how floofy my tail is? My fur is super soft! I get along with everyone! Sure, I may growl and hiss at first, but it's just to warn you that I smell something new and I have to get used to it. But don't worry about me scratching you. Unfortunately, I'm declawed. But that's ok - it doesn't stop me from climbing. I can climb and jump very high! That armoire in my room is no challenge for me. My favourite toy is the laser light and I love catnip, but not too much. I might have a bit of catitude sometimes, but mom taught me "NO" and I learned that no means no. I LOVE to play with the little kittens that come through the foster house, but if I had to live with another cat, it should be non-dominant as I like to be the boss. I have this thing called "diabetes". I think that's why I was surrendered to the rescue. I've been in so many homes, which is kind of sad. I don't think I did anything wrong. I think it's just because people were afraid to deal with the diabetes. I came to live with my current foster mom several months ago, and I have a diabetic friend here too. Foster mom had already learned how to give insulin with my foster friend, so she already knew how to do it by the time I came. I need to have my blood tested and given insulin twice a day, but I'm pretty good about it. Mom gives me a couple of treats (I'm only allowed a couple each time), so that helps. The only food I'm allowed to have is Friskies wet pate. Mom said it's inexpensive and you can get it anywhere. What do you say? Do you have a home for me? I really want to have my own home where I can run around the whole house! Right now I have to share a room because I can't eat the other cats food. Oh how I would love a great, big window where I can bird and squirrel watch all day long! It would be great if my new family has experience with diabetes and giving insulin, but if not, the rescue will put you in contact with resources that will help. If you think you can give me my perfect home, 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/

Do you want to hear the story of the paper bag kitty princess? That's my story! My foster mom named me Lady, because even when I was first rescued and was all dirty from living outside, I would still sit very patiently and try to look pretty (did you notice the blue fleck in my eye?) while they took care of me. Soon, mom discovered that I'm very much of a love bug, so she gave me the nickname "Ladybug" that I like much better. A real lady never tells her age, but I will tell you that I'm not a kitten (foster mom says in human years I'm six). I love affection on my terms, and I'm very serious about catching that mouse on a string - when it suits me. My foster mom has been working with me on being more outgoing, but the princess streak in me wins out and I insist on things happening on my terms. I'm really not a fan of being picked up or rubbed with both hands, but when I have my own home, and my own special person is willing to be patient with me, I will learn to trust because I bet it feels real good to snuggle and be rubbed. For now, though, I love to get love when you sit on the floor with me, or if I'm sitting on the couch. I hang around the kitchen doorway when I'm hungry, and if you come near me and talk to me, I'll give you a head bonk and get head scratches and pets. Then I'll give you this look that tells you I'll love you even more after you feed me. The indoor life is truly the life of luxury! I really love spending time with other kitties, so I need a home with at least one other kitty friend to hang out with when my favourite human isn't home. I've never met a dog before, but I don't think I'd like them so much, so maybe a home without dogs would be best. I'm definitely a very quiet, calm girl, so I don't want to live with any little kids who won't respect my space, so I think older kids (12+) might be okay. I came to the rescue from a colony of cats; they were trying to trap the momma to some kittens, and trapped me by accident. But I showed the lady that I was nice, and she asked the rescue people if they could help me, and that's how I came to my foster mom's house. Mom gave me a bath, and brushed my fur, and gave me lots of yummy food, and I purred and purred, so happy to be inside and loved. But I had a few health issues. All that yummy food that I was now getting, also made my tummy sick. Plus, I kept pulling chunks of my fur out, because my skin was just so itchy! I didn't like to be petted sometimes because of my sore skin. Mom says I am "allergic" to things like chicken and fish, which is sad, because they're so yummy! But now I'm eating "venison" which mom says makes me a lucky kitty. I also had some really bad teeth that were hurting me, so I had all my sore teeth taken out, and now I feel so much better. On top of all of this, the vet discovered that I'm FIV+, which means I get sick more easily than other kitties because my immune system doesn't work properly anymore. Don't worry, though - it doesn't mean I'll live a shorter life or that I can pass it to anyone. Even though FIV can potentially be transmitted between cats, that usually only happens with a deep bite - and I don't have any teeth to bite with! If you'd like to know more about FIV and how you can help me manage it, please talk to our rescue volunteers - they're super smart and know a whole lot! So, that's my story. I love my foster mom and hanging out with everyone here, but I want my own home where I can be spoiled like the proper lady (dare I even say, princess) that I am. Are you a very loving, patient, calm person or couple who is looking for a quiet companion? If you think you could give me the home that I so desperately desire, or would like to meet me, please visit me at PetSmart Burlington or fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

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, I'm chillin' at my new foster home, so fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/ and the great folks at the rescue will arrange for us to meet.

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/
