Share Your Adoption Stories

Every year hundreds of cats travel through Ninth Life Cat Rescue. Their new life starts on the day they are rescued and move into a foster home. In Foster care, they received love, affection, warmth and security. Our foster parents care deeply for the cats entrusted to them. Many cats also spend some time in one of our adoption centres. Here, more volunteers socialize and play with the cats while getting to know their personalities even more to help them find a perfect home match for our kitties. And then you come along! You make the decision to provide a forever home to these fur-babies who have already received so much love. All of the volunteers thank you for loving them as we have, and we would LOVE to see how they are doing in their new home.

Petal

Petal

I adopted Petal, formerly Coral, at the Burlington petsmart on Nov. 11, 2017. It has only been a few months but we have already bonded so much!!!

One thing that can be said about Petal is that she LOVES pets. She sleeps beside me every night and often times I will wake up to her trying to make me pet her – definitely is the best way to wake up.

Petal is a shy cat (particularly around men!) but has come so far from when we first adopted her. She constantly clings to me … I can’t even go to the washroom without her following me!

Adopting Petal has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am so glad I had the opportunity to give her her forever home!

Figuring out the housecat life

Figuring out the housecat life

This furry little girl was so so so scared when we brought her home. It must have been quite a life she had before her wonderful foster Mom Stephanie rescued her But 9 months later, while she is still skittish, she is starting to learn how to be a housecat. After not making a single vocalization for almost a year, she greets me most mornings with a quiet meow these days. She plays with her balls and toy mice. She loves to be pet and brushed and she is enjoys watching TV with the family. Every day she feels a little braver and a little more trusting. She is a sweet little girl and we are so happy to have her as part of our family.

Max

Max

My partner and I adopted Max in March 2017 from the PetSmart Oakville location. Max is an all black cat who was estimated at 4 years old (we’ve since celebrated his birthday!). Max is sweet, playful, curious, shy and energetic.

Max quickly settled into his new home and has brought such joy to our lives. He is my best friend, following me around everywhere I go, cuddling lots and of course doing that weird kneading thing cats do. Max also loves to explore every nook in our home even opening cupboards on his own. Max loves playing with toys and especially likes the crinkle balls. He is so much fun, very entertaining and always there for you when you need a cuddle.

Max was missing most of his teeth when we adopted him due to having feline stomatitis. A few months after Max’s adoption, his vet discovered that there was more inflammation in his gums. The vet recommended removal of the rest of his teeth which we did. Max has since been recovering well. Although he continues to receive monthly check-ups, the inflammation continues to decrease and we hope will be gone soon.

Thank you to all those who took care of Max before we could. Also a big thank you to Ninth Life Cat Rescue for introducing us to Max and allowing us to adopt him. Our lives are all better for it.

Bonnie, adopted from pet smart Oakville

Bonnie, adopted from pet smart Oakville

On December 22,2017 I went to Pet Smart in Oakville to have a visit with the many cats looking for a home. Bonnie, (we renamed her Callie) jumped into my arms from her cage for some snuggles. I knew then that she had to be mine. I adopted her the same day and brought her home. She is the most cuddly and affectionate cat I have ever known. When she is sleepy her favourite place to have a snooze is in your arms, on your lap or snuggled into your neck. She sleeps between us in the bed at night. Sometimes she will share the pillow with you.
She enjoys watching the birds and squirrels through the window all day. She loves to play with all her toys. One in particular makes its way up the stairs for bedtime.
I am so happy that she is so happy in her forever home with us.
Thank you for all that you do for these loving animals.

Pippin is one happy cat!

Pippin is one happy cat!

Pippin (previously Poutine) has settled in just purrrfectly in our home. He is the chattiest cat I’ve ever met, and certainly lets you know that he doesn’t approve of closed doors. He loves to see everyone and be in the same room as you, and boy does he love chasing after toys! He is such a sweet and affectionate boy and seems to enjoy having all the space, attention, toys, and love we’re able to give. Pippin is a treasured member of our family and we so look forward to having him in our lives. Thank you, Ninth Life Cat Rescue!
