Introducing LIL B

This gorgeous girl with the big, bright yellow eyes is Lil B! Lil B is seven years young and is friendly as can be. She is very easy going and appreciative of every kind word. Lil B has the shiniest black fur, which she loves to have brushed.

While she might be a little shy when she first meets you, by nature she is a happy cat and will soon be rolling around while you rub her head. Lil B has adjusted well to the adoption centre and prefers to lay low and mind her own business when it gets busy. Lil B has mastered the art of lounging. When it is quiet, she likes to chill out on the climber where she can say hello to everyone who passes by. She’s not much of a cuddler, but does appreciate a nice, long petting session.

Lil B loves to play with toys – especially her ball and anything with catnip. A confident girl, Lil B embraces her portly figure, but could probably use a bit more exercise in her new home to help her regain her girlish figure. As Lil B is very relaxed, she would be good for a first-time pet owner. She likes children, but might be best as an only cat.

Lil B and her brother were left alone in their home when sadly, their owner passed away. Kind neighbours left food for them every few days until we were called to help. 

Just a friendly, lovable couch potato at heart, Lil B will make a great addition to any home.

If you would like to meet Lil B, please stop by and visit her at Oakville PetSmart or you can fill out an online application

Introducing SIMBA & NALA

Hi everyone! I’m Simba. I’m the handsome, long-haired guy here. Nala is my adorable sister. Isn’t she cute? We are seven years old and declawed. We absolutely love to have our hair brushed from head to toe. You can brush us for hours, we love it that much. It makes us very happy. One of my favourite things to do is watch the birds outside the window. When I’m not doing that, I love to lounge in the sun. We both do – oh that warm sun feels SO good! Another favourite? Belly rubs! We just can’t get enough belly rubs! And get this, we don’t even mind having our back nails cut. We sit nice and still.

Nala is a typical little sister – I give her everything. How could I not? Look how adorable she is. She absolutely LOVES to snuggle and doesn’t hesitate to steal my spot on the couch. Good thing she’s cute! I’ll gladly share my spot on the couch with her. We love to snuggle with each other and our foster parents. We like it when they carry us like babies, too! You know what else we love? CATNIP! And I just can’t get enough of that red light. I go a little bit nuts trying to catch it. Foster mom says we have exceptional personalities. I think that must be because we love to talk to her as soon as she walks in the door. We want to know how her day was and tell her all about ours. We would do best in a home with no other cats. Nala can be a bit of a brat with other cats. I guess she prefers my company only. We’ve been together our whole lives and must be adopted together. I can’t even imagine being without my sister.

We were in the same house since we were kittens. Sadly, our mom & dad didn’t want to live together anymore, so mom left. Dad was really, really upset when he surrendered us, but he said it was in our best interests, since he couldn’t give us the best possible house he felt we deserved. It’s ok – we know we’re going to find the perfect family and home soon!

Do you have everything we need to give us the perfect home? We don’t need much – windows to birdwatch, a couch for both of us to snuggle on, a brush, hands to rub our bellies and maybe a few toys. As long as we stay together, we’ll be happy wherever we are!

Introducing STEVIE

Have you been looking for a cat that loves human attention? Have you been seeking a cat that could easily spend the whole day laying by your side? Is your perfect cat outgoing and not shy? Then look no further! Say hello to the handsome Stevie! Are you looking for a cat that will be your shadow? Stevie.

He follows his foster mom around the house, watching her every move, waiting patiently for the second she sits down, so he can lay beside her. Looking for a cat that is a bit more mature and past the kitten stage? At eight years young, Stevie is full of energy! Is your ideal cat one that loves head rubs, neck and chin scratches? Here he is! It’s Stevie! Do you want a cat that will play with all the toys you have around the house, especially if you have tunnels, mice, catnip and strings? He’s right here – Stevie! Want a cat that isn’t going to bug you for belly rubs all day? Stevie. He really dislikes them. Is your home perfect for a cat that just had all his dental done, because he has to eat only dental food now (readily available from your vet)? Have just enough room for one pet? Stevie is your guy – he wants to be the only pet in the house so he can have all your love and attention.

Stevie and his sister were left without a family after their owner sadly passed away. Some kind neighbours would leave food for them before they came to us. Stevie’s sister is in an adoption centre, but the hustle and bustle of the centre didn’t suit Stevie’s fancy, so he’s going to hang out at his foster until he’s adopted.

Is the cat you’ve been searching for finally here? Is it Stevie?

Introducing HARLEY

Hi everyone! It’s me Harley! I heard you call me. Guess what? I know my name, and when you call me I’ll look up at you and say “hi!” to you with a little meow. I’m a very social and chatty guy who loves spending time with my people.

At ten years young, I enjoy spending my day hanging out with my humans and napping in a sunny window. Don’t get me wrong – I love to play with a wand toy and explore the house, but cuddling is by far my favourite activity. I’m very dedicated to my job of making sure that my humans get enough kitty affection. My very favourite thing to do is cuddle up with you when you watch TV. I love to give kisses – I’ll lick your hand or arm while you pet me, and if you let me, I’ll give you chin or face kisses! When I don’t get enough attention, I’ll give you this soulful look with my big green eyes and you won’t be able to resist petting me.

Ever since I was a small kitten, I’ve had tummy issues. Whenever I ate kibble, I would throw up. My family at the time put me on a raw food diet, and it did wonders for me. Since that’s what I’ve been eating my whole life, I should stay on this food to keep me healthy. (If you want to know more about my raw food diet, my foster mom is an expert!). I love all the affection I get from my foster mom, but I get jealous when it’s someone else’s turn to get her affection. So mom’s own kitty and I have a rather tense relationship. There’s a couple other kitties around who are more easygoing, and we sometimes hang out together.

To help ease my insecurities, mom says I need a home with at most one other easygoing companion, or to be the only kitty and have all the attention to myself. I’ve never lived with a dog, but maybe a dog would be a good cuddle buddy – I’d have to try it and see. I love to be picked up and carried, and don’t mind being held on my back like a baby – to me, it’s just more opportunity for love! Mom tells me that I’d love a family with kids to spoil me and cuddle me, but I’m not picky: I know I’ll be happy anywhere so long as I have a family of my own to love!

Growing up in my previous home, I had a cat buddy, but then a year ago, my buddy died. My owner was so sad from missing my buddy, that she felt she wasn’t giving me the love and attention I needed. Sadly, she asked the rescue to find me a new home. I was scared to leave the only home I knew, but my foster mom showed me that a new home meant getting the affection I’d been craving, and I’m loving my new life. 

Do you think you could be the purrfect family for me to love? I’m staying with my foster mom until I’m adopted (because of my diet), so come visit me there – I’d love to meet you!

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/ and they’ll connect us. 

Introducing MUFFIN

Meet our tasty little treat, Muffin! Like her name might imply, Muffin is a very sweet girl. She’s very talkative – she’d love to sit with you while you have your coffee and have a chat. Muffin is a stunning lady that likely has some Norwegian Forest cat breeding. Muffin is approximately 12 years old, although we can’t be sure of her exact age. However, you would never know by her demeanour that she’s a senior girl. Muffin is very independent. She loves to explore her surroundings and is very curious about the people around her. Muffin is not a lap cat, but she love to be near you.

Muffin has something called hyperthyroidism – meaning she has an overproduction of thyroid hormone. This is easily managed with a small pill twice a day – it is also her absolute FAVOURITE part of the day as she loves getting treats with her pill and will eat it from your hand! Now that her hyperthyroidism is under control she can have it treated by two ways – whichever works best for her new owner. She can either be on a special veterinary diet of thyroid health food, or, she can be on any kitty food with a pill twice a day – currently she is on a pill due to how easily she eats it with treats – no pilling needed. But since Muffin likes to eat just about anything, the transition to a thyroid health diet would be very easy as well, if that works better for her new family. Due to Muffin’s extended time outside, she has learned to like her own space when it comes to other cats. This means she would do best with no other pets or calm pets that will let her have her space and be the boss! But really, a special girl of her age deserves to be spoiled as the queen of her own home, don’t you think?

Muffin was a stray and being fed outside for approximately four years, before she finally made her way indoors. She has adjusted very well to the indoor lifestyle and would love nothing more than to have her own home, perhaps with a nice, bright sunny window to watch the outside world go by – a world she is happy to no longer be a part of.

Sweet Muffin deserves to be spoiled after spending several rough years outside. Since she wouldn’t do well in an adoption centre with many other kitties, she is staying at the vet clinic that took her in, where she gets to roam around the whole hospital, talking to everyone she meets.

Introducing BABY

Hey everyone! It’s me, Baby! Do you remember me from the adoption centre? It’s been awhile since I’ve been there. I’ve been enjoying my long, extended vacation at my foster dad’s house. It’s been soooo nice to have the place all to myself and not be pestered by other cats.

In case you forgot, let me tell you a bit about myself. I’m seven years old and while I was known for being grumpy at the adoption centre, I’ve really changed since I’ve been in my foster home. Foster dad says I really am a friendly guy. I like pets and head rubs, just as long as they’re on my terms. You know, when I feel like it, not when you feel like it. I love bedtime and will cuddle and use foster dad as a pillow. Sometimes I even wake him in the night for attention. Hey, when I want attention, I want attention! I still don’t like to be picked up or sit in your lap, but I like to nap in the same room as you. I’m always looking for a new place to snooze. I love me some serious nap time! I like to talk a lot too.

You usually know where I am, as I’ll often walk around announcing my arrival or presence. Sometimes I forget my manners and might give a little nip. But just give me my space and I’ll stop. I’m a manly cat, but I have to admit – I’m afraid of loud noises. I have to run and hide when that noisy vacuum comes out. I can be a bit skittish at times, but foster dad reassures me and makes me feel safe when I’m scared. Dad says that overall, I’m really an easy going kitty – most of the time. You already know that I don’t like cats and dogs. That hasn’t changed, so I really need to be your one and only pet.

In case you forgot, I was surrendered with my brother when our family came upon hard times. My brother got adopted almost right away when we went into the adoption centre, but I had a really hard time adjusting and I spent a LOT of time there. Even though I made great progress with all the wonderful volunteers there, I still wasn’t completely comfortable or happy. That’s when I went to my foster home for my extended vacation.

While I’m having the time of my life at my foster home, the time really has come for me to find my forever home. My new family will have to understand my need for time and space to get used to all the new things. I need someone who is okay with my occasional nip or grumpiness. Once I settle in, I’ll be snoozing on your bed in no time.

I really do deserve my own forever home, where I can lay down my own permanent roots, just as much as every other cat. I sure hope that home is with you!

What do you say? Do you want to meet me? I’m going to hang with foster dad until my new family comes along, so contact the folks at the rescue at (905) 301-3532, email: info@ninthlifecatrescue.org or fill out an online application

Introducing PANDA

Meet our special needs boy, Panda. Panda is an absolutely adorable tuxedo who is almost three years old. Panda is very social and loves to be around his people. If he does wander off to explore or hide somewhere for a nap, he will usually come when called. Panda is a smart boy – he knows how to high five and sit. Well, usually, unless he doesn’t feel like doing it (he is a cat, after all). Panda is usually pretty cuddly, as long as it’s on his terms (again, it’s a cat thing). He’s ok with being picked up, but just to be carried or cuddled (oh look…another cat thing). Panda loves chase toys and sometimes he’s quite happy just to play on his own with balls with bells in them. He is very smart with food toys – his foster family will often put his kibble in a Kong wobbler or even an empty plastic water bottle. Panda is good with his foster family’s dogs and he’s even good meeting new dogs.

What makes our boy a special needs cat? Panda has a condition called “Feline Hyperesthesia”. What does this mean? This condition causes him to attack his tail. Sadly, he’s had to spend most of the last year with a cone on almost 24 hours a day. However, the vet recently changed his medications and he seems to be much better. He is currently being tested without his cone and so far, seems to be doing well. Panda currently gets Gabapentin twice a day (as close to every 12 hours as possible) and Amitriptyline once a day, which he easily takes in his wet food. He is also on a urinary food to prevent urinary tract infections, which is readily available from any vet.

Panda’s perfect family will be someone who will love him for who he is and will be able to administer his medications on schedule every day. This special boy has been in the rescue for over a year now and would just love to find his own forever home.
