Hi everyone! My name is Marie. I'm about one year old and this is my dad, Maestro! He's eight years old. Doesn't he just have the kindest face? We have been together through thick and thin and are very close. My dad is a bit more shy than I am, but when he feels more comfortable with you, he'll be a real love bug. He just LOVES attention and affection. Me? I'm super sweet and I'm very spunky. I like running around and playing with all the toys! Best fun ever! I have so much fun playing with the other cats and kittens in the adoption centre too. But in the end, I always end up back with my dad. It's so comforting when he grooms me every night. Want to know something cool about us? We're both polydactyl. Yep - that's right - we both have extra toes! Wondering about Dad's ear? It was damaged from an ear mite infestation, but it's all good - he can still hear when you call him! Don't worry - he's not as sad as he looks. His one eye is a bit runny, but it's nothing serious. He's really a happy, loving guy! We have been around other cats and kittens all of our lives, so we are quite comfortable with them. Dad grooms all the other kittens at the adoption centre too. He's like a dad to everyone! Because we love each other so much, we really need to be adopted together. We were part of a group of cats and kittens that were rescued from a hoarding house. Fortunately for us, we had a great foster home, we're healthy and now we look forward to finding our new forever home together. You will get the best of both worlds when you adopt us! A kitten full of energy who loves to play and a quiet snuggle cat to watch T.V. with!

I'm Albert and this is my sister, Victoria! We look like twins, don't we? But if you look close, Victoria has a cute little black dot on her nose. We are just over one year old, but still love to play like kittens. We love the feathery, wavy things and balls - we have an absolute blast chasing balls! We love hanging out on the scratching post too! We are very friendly and just love everyone. Hear that purring? It's us. Just put your hand near us and the motors get switched on. We love our pets and head scratches. Victoria and I just love to cuddle together, but I'm not too crazy about being picked up. Victoria doesn't mind it though! I'm a bit more independent, but Victoria really relies on me for comfort. You see, we have never been apart since the day we were born, so we have to stay together in our new forever home. We are getting along with the calmer cats at the adoption centre, but we're not sure about dogs. Kids are ok, but we'd prefer a quieter home, We were rescued from a backyard, where our mom had us. Sadly, the great folks at the rescue tried really hard for a long time to catch our mom and bring her inside with us, but unfortunately, she was hit by a car. All of our siblings have been adopted and now it's our turn. We did find a new home before, but unfortunately, one of the kids in the house developed severe allergies, so we had to be returned. They were very sad, as were we. So here we are again, looking for a new forever home. We really are a sweet, loving pair and would love to meet you! We hope you want to meet us too!

Need a little more "spark" in your life? Looking for a new friend to brighten up your home? Then you must meet our beautiful one and half year old girl, Sparky! Sparky has a twinkle in her gorgeous green eyes that will make you fall in love with her immediately. A very sweet and friendly girl, her name couldn't be more appropriate. Sparky is playful and full of energy! Feather toys and balls are a couple of her favourites. Very affectionate, Sparky loves her pets and belly rubs. Sparky LOVES to run and play, so she would love to have a playful cat or cat-friendly dog buddy in her new home. Sparky was found abandoned and pregnant. Just a kitten herself, she gave birth to one kitten, who has already been adopted. Fortunately, she was rescued and is now looking for a family of her own. Sparky is looking for her forever home where she will sparkle and shine! Is that home with you? Sparky will make a wonderful addition to your family! Sparky is back in her foster home for a week or so... she will be back soon at Etobicoke PetSmart or you can fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

Well would you look at this handsome pair? We'd like to introduce you to Loki & Thor! Loki is the very striking black & white fellow, and Thor is the equally handsome grey & white boy. These boys are 1.5 years young and are just like brothers - they are the best of friends and have grown up together. Loki is oh so sweet! He goes crazy for the feather toy - it's his favourite! Thor is the more adventurous of the two. He also loves the feather toy and man, can he play hard with that toy! Oh and did we mention catnip? Give him some catnip toys and he's gone. Check back later! They are not crazy about the other cats and kittens in the adoption centre. But then these two active boys are sure tired of being cooped in their kitty condo... they really need a home and room to run and play inside! Thor is also a polydactyl so he has more toes - extremely helpful for attacking the feather toy. Both have the softest coats too... great to cuddle up with. They are very loving, love to play and cuddle and ADORE attention from people! Loki & Thor are a bonded pair, as they have been together since they were only days old. They will need to be adopted together. We can't split up this dynamic duo! Loki & Thor were adopted together as kittens, but sadly, their owner returned them recently as they felt they no longer had time for them. Loki & Thor would love to meet you. They deserve a new home with a family who understands that owning cats is forever and will love them for the rest of their lives. These active boys are back at Etobicoke Petsmart if you would like to meet them!

Hey folks! Bob's my name, being a cat is my game! I'm about five years old and let me tell you - I just LOVE people and meeting new friends. I'm the official greeter at my foster home whenever guests come. Hey, what are you doing? Let me see! Yes, I'm very curious. I just can't help it. Where are you going? Can I come? Don't mind me if I follow you around - I just like to check out what you're doing. Wanna play with me? Playing is my favourite thing and I'm very good at it! Can't play right now? It's ok - I can entertain myself. I'll just take that toy mouse and toss it around until I'm tired. I haven't caught the little red light yet, but I will one of these days! Then it's nap time. I love me some good nap time. What's for dinner? After nap time, it's a good time to feed me. Wet, dry, it's all good. Oh, and don't forget the treats! Wanna know what my signature move is? I lie on my back and show you my belly. You can pet my belly for a bit, but when I've reached my desired amount of pets, I'll let you know. Then you can stop. I'm not a huge fan of being picked up, but go ahead. I'll let you know when it's time to put me down. Other cats? Sure! I get along with the other cats in my foster home. I want to play with them all, even though some might not want to play with me. So either way, a home with or without cats will work. Oh, did you notice my tail? That's why I was surrendered. My owner said that another cat in the house was mean to me and damaged it, but for some reason, they didn't want to take care of me. I'm really not sure what to make of that. The kind folks at the rescue took me to the vet but unfortunately, they had to amputate it. Man, I had to wear that cone of shame for about a month while it recovered! That was not fun, but I was a good boy about it and took it like a trooper, even though it was really uncomfortable. I'm still able to wag it though! So, what do you say? Do you want to be my new family? Come on - you know you want to!

A sweet and gentle little girl, Brimley is only a year old, but has already had a litter of kittens. She's a bit shy at first, but she just loves attention. Brimley is petite for her age, but she is full of life! A soft bed and lots of cuddles are just what Brimley is looking for! A nice sunny window to watch the birds and sunbathe would suit her just fine. A lovely little girl, who is still full of kitten fun, Brimley is super sweet and will make a wonderful addition to any home. Brimley must go to a home without dogs. Brimley was found living in an industrial area, taking care of her two little boys. Fortunately, she was in a fenced in area to protect her family from coyotes. There was also a truckload of warm fabric to keep them warm. Brimley was a great mom to her two babies who have since been adopted but now it's her turn to find her forever home! If you have room in your home and heart for this sweet, petite little girl, then please come and visit with Brimley. Brimley is current on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. If you would like to meet Brimley, 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/

Hello dahlings! My name is Stacey and although a lady doesn't usually admit their age, I'll tell you I'm almost four years old. I know...I'm absolutely stunning, aren't I? I have the most beautiful white fur and I know you just can't resist my eyes. How often do you see two different colour eyes? I am just sooooo fabulous! Someone please fetch my tiara! I love to be in the spotlight of bright, sunny windows. I could just lounge there all day. The sun makes my fur look even more beautiful than it already is. I just love my filet mignon (wet food) and caviar (treats) and as long as they are delivered to me on time, I'm a very happy girl. I might be a bit shy when you first bring me home, but give me some time to adjust and you will see in time that I love to play. I won't always admit it, but I do have a silly side. I really love the dangly, shiny thing. Shiny - like diamonds! I can be a bit of a diva sometimes (come on ladies, let's be honest, who isn't?) so I'm not a big fan of new people coming into my space. It would be great if my new home has a separate boudoir for me to retreat to when I've had enough of the spotlight and just need to be alone. I need a person who understands cat language and my subtle messages to you. You know, like when I've had enough petting, and I get a bit agitated, just know that it's time to stop. Loud noises stress me out, so I would definitely need a quiet home, with no other pets or children. I can't believe that someone abandoned me when I was younger. I was brought into some place called Animal Control and trust me; it did not live up to my standards. I was glad when I was brought into the rescue, but it's time for me to find my own home. The living quarters in the adoption centre are a bit cramped for my liking. As long as you give me the chance to settle in, with my own space to retreat to, I would be pleased to show you how loving I can be.

This is a story of a Princess without a kingdom. It is a sad story but not a unique one. Princess once lived in a home and all seemed good. Then the children arrived and she was forgotten until the toddlers learned that poking and pulling her was fun. Scared, and scarred by being declawed, Princess lived in fear until the day came that she was no longer wanted and was given away. Arriving at the rescue at the age of eight, Princess was frightened and depressed. She did not know how to handle this new situation so much later in life. She remained in her little cage and tried to protect it as if that was all she had left. This meant that when someone tried to show kindness, Princess was afraid and would hiss to protect her little domain such as it was. People would say she was grumpy and miserable but she was only afraid and she wanted to be loved so much. So she stayed in her small cage and never ventured out. Months passed and still she stayed inside. She has yet to actually go out for a little walk around the adoption centre. Princess has a very sweet nature that she sometimes hides with hisses. She is afraid to trust and will need patience and assurance that she is loved. In return, she will bless you with soundless purrs and throat rumbles. Princess deserves a chance to have a kingdom (a small home with no other cats or small children). She wants to show how loving she can be but she needs someone to believe in her. Could that be you? Could you help Princess regain her confidence and trust again? She would reward you greatly with devotion and love. Please rescue this sweet Princess and help her know love and find her happily ever after. If you think you could give Princess 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/

Hi everyone! My name is Aunt May. Don't let my name fool you, I'm not the aunty type...sheesh...I'm only two years old! I suppose I could be an aunt. I probably am. Not sure. But enough about that - we're talking about me. Don't you think I'm pretty? I love my soft, silky fur and my pretty eyes. I'm still very young and playful like a kitten. Oh how I love to play! I will play for hours, if you can keep up with me. The best place to play? The big cat tree. That is my favourite place to hang out and play. I really like toys on sticks - feathers, mice, balls, anything dangly! I wasn't that friendly at first. When I first came to the adoption centre, I was very scared and nervous. But since everyone has been playing with me so much, I'm getting much better. I've learned that getting pets is a good thing and I'm really starting to like them. I used to run away and not let anyone touch me but now I will let you - I've even started to lean into the pets, so you know I must like them. Just because I might take off if you try to pick me up, doesn't mean I don't like you. I'm just not a big fan of being picked up. No big deal - lots of cats don't like being picked up. It's a cat thing. When I come to your home, just give me some time to be shy at first and don't touch me until I'm ready. But I will still love to play with you! I would probably like another kitty friend to play with too. I was a very young mother found living outside with my kittens when a vet found us and took us in. After all of my kittens found their forever homes, the vet surrendered me to the kind folks at the rescue so that I can find my own forever home. If you think you can keep up with me and have lots of toys and time to play with me, please let me come to your home and watch me blossom into a friendly, playful kitty!

Say hello to handsome Fenmore! Fenmore is an independent, five year old guy who is manly in every way possible. Fenmore loves to play with his toys - anything on a stick will be his favourite. Fenmore is a dominant male, who likes to play rough. Fenmore would love to have lots of space and play time to burn off his extra energy! Want to know the way to Fenmore's heart? Through his stomach, of course! Fenmore is a big fan of treats and will never miss a meal! Got some catnip? Fenmore LOVES it! He's been caught sneaking into the other cat's condos and stealing their leftovers! Fenmore likes his pets, but on his terms only. If he doesn't want pets, he'll let you know, usually by way of a swat. Because he is a dominant cat, Fenmore will do best in a home with no children, dogs or other dominant cats. Fenmore was living outside and being cared for by a family. After the house was sold, the new people in the house didn't want the responsibility of caring for Fenmore. He was turned over to Animal Services, and then brought into the rescue. Fenmore has been at the adoption centre for far too long now. He used to be more friendly and outgoing, but he absolutely hates being confined to his small kennel. He just needs the perfect family to come along who will love him as he is and give him time to become the outgoing friendly cat we know he can be. If you would like to meet Fenmore, please stop by and visit him at Oakville PetSmart or you can 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

What Sparkle wants more than anything in the world is to be loved! She caught our eye when we were rescuing cats from animal services last year. She's simply a beautiful girl! And so we named her Sparkle 🙂 She's quite young, our vet's best guess is that she's only a few years old. We don't know whether she was born with her unique body issues or whether she encountered some really bad experiences over her first year of life, but like so many that find their way to us, she likely has a sad story to tell. We could not leave her behind. This would be the start of a new, better story for Sparkle. Off to the vet where we were told that her little stub of a tail was fractured in six places and she had hip and knee issues. She had surgery on her knees to reduce the pain, and then off she went to her foster home. After a nice, long rest, she headed out to find her home at one of our adoption centres where she became a favourite of staff and customers alike. Everyone loved her...but, sadly, no one adopted her. After a few months in the adoption centre we got a call that something appeared to be bothering her. Off she went back to our vet where it was discovered she had an enlarged heart. She is now on medication to address the heart issue, and her foster mom said she takes her pill nicely each day without a fuss with the help of a 'pill-popper'. She will probably have to be on them for the rest of her life. Sparkle is a very sweet little girl. Her foster mom discovered she would come when she whistled! How cute is that? 🙂 Sparkle also knows want she wants. If she does not want to do something or does not want to be picked up, she just lets you know. She is back with her foster mom who first fell in love with her that day at animal services…but it is not an ideal home because a resident cat does not approve and picks on little Sparkle. She would dearly love to have a lap of her own to lie on, but the other cats in the house seem to always take over the only lap. She needs a home where she can get more love and affection. She gets along just fine with other cats in the house. "And she still comes when I whistle!!!" Please let us know if you want to meet this special girl and give her the home she truly deserves!

Claire is a 2 year old, gorgeous polydactyl tortie! She is an independent girl and will come to you when it suits her. 😉 Claire has the most amazing colouring and her coat is soft like silk. She gets along with all cats, but isn't a a big fan of dogs. Claire was left to fend for herself when she was a 6 month old kitten. One of our wonderful fosters stepped in and took her in. She has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and would prefer an adult home environment.
