  • Domestic Short Hair
Absolutely gorgeous with beautiful markings, this lovely girl is Lucy! Lucy is almost four years old and has the most unique markings and extremely soft fur. She loves lounging in her favourite spot on the couch where she watches all the action. If you have some scratches for Lucy, her favourite spot is behind her ears. She will purr up a storm but will also let you know when she has had enough affection. Lucy's favourite indulgence is catnip squares. While Lucy is not a cuddly lap cat, she does enjoy sitting and hanging out with the teenagers in her foster home. Lucy greets her foster mom at the door when she comes home and follows her around the house, along with the dogs. Lucy is not a fan of other cats, but she is fine with small dogs. Barking and loud noises don't seem to bother her at all. While she will make a great companion for someone who is home a lot, Lucy must go to a home with no other cats. Lucy came to the rescue when she was pregnant. She delivered one single kitten by c-section and was an amazing mother. When another single orphan kitten was found, Lucy became her surrogate mother and accepted the kitten immediately, raising it as her own. Lucy's kittens were adopted months ago, but unfortunately, Lucy did not do well in an adoption centre environment. She returned to her foster home, where she has flourished. Lucy is now ready to find her own permanent home. Is that home with you? If you think you could give Lucy 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/

Hello there! My name is Stormy! It's so very nice to meet you. I am two years old and I would love to be your one and only little princess. Don't you think I'm pretty? Look how white my tummy is. I'm very long and slender. I can stretch out forever. Oh and I just love attention! Can I just curl up and cuddle with you? You can pet me all you want - I love my pets and scratches. Do you have toys for me? I love toys, toys and more toys. But really, I can make a toy out of anything. I'll chase anything around for fun. Do you have a nice, bright window? That's my favourite place to lounge. I'm not a fan of other cats or children, so I must be your one and only. This way, we can share all the love and cuddles together. Do you know what happened to me? I was left behind in my home when my owner moved away. My owner's roommates waited forever for them to come back for me, but they never did. So, they finally called the nice people at the rescue to come and get me. My owner wasn't very nice to me. They didn't really pay too much attention to me. I was very frightened and sad when I went to my foster home. My foster mom said my "spirit was broken", whatever that means. Oh, and guess what? I was also pregnant. My foster mom was great - she treated me, and then my babies, with so much love and affection. I feel so much better now and all my babies have found their forever homes. Now, all I want is my own forever home. Is that home with you? I hope so! I'm very anxious to find a home of my own, with my very own big window to lounge in.

** 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.

Hi everyone! It's me, Hummus! I'm the big black guy over here with the bright green eyes. Come on over and see me! I know, I look a bit older, but I'm only three years old. I'm still just a young boy. I just look older because I'm bigger - solid as a rock, I am. I'm a very laid back dude, just as long as there aren't any dogs around. Dogs make me FREAK out! Cats? Ya, I'm ok with cats. I hang around with them all day at the adoption centre. I'm not really going to go looking for them to cuddle, but they don't bother me either. You know those treats in the little crinkly bag? They are my most favourite thing EVER! I love being petted and played with, but for some reason, people don't play with me that much. Is it because I'm bigger? I'm not sure - but I wish people would play with me more and give me more attention. I'm not really big on cuddling, but if you're looking for a true friend and companion who will always be there for you, then that's me! I do like to talk to you, so I'll be happy to keep you company and tell you stories. You don't want me sitting on your lap anyway - you know, with the fur and all. But I promise to show you how affectionate I can be - you just need to give me a chance! I was rescued along with a bunch of other cats from a rescue in northern Ontario. I'm glad I got to come here, but I'm still waiting for my forever home. I've been in the adoption centre since August, 2017. That's a long, long time waiting for you to come and get me. I hope you will come and visit me soon! I'd love to show you how much I love to play.

You know that old expression, "never judge a book by its cover"? Well that would best describe me! My name is Blackjack and while I may look older and a bit rough around the edges, I'm only two years old! I am a very playful boy. I just love to watch the world go by and the other cats, perched in my favourite chair. Oh and that little red light? I AM going to catch that thing one of these days! I don't care how long it takes, because I love to play with it so much, but I will catch it! I love lots of attention and I just love to talk. I can go on forever telling you about my day, asking you how your day was, life in general. I just love to talk. I'm not much for cuddles, but I still like to be around you so I can get all the attention! I may look like a big boy, but really I'm all muscle. Sometimes I forget that fingers aren't toys and will sometimes give a little nibble, so it's probably best that my home only has older children. I get along just fine with other cats too! I have had to fend for myself on the streets ever since my owners moved away and left me behind. I'm not aggressive or dominant, so I was picked on a lot while I lived outside. The people say that's probably why I look a bit rough. That's probably how I got something called FIV too. But now that I'm safe inside, I want everyone to know that FIV+ cats can live with other cats, can live normal lives and that FIV does not spread via scratches or eating & drinking from the same bowls. Just in case you're worried, here are some facts about FIV: - FIV stands for Feline Immuno-deficiency Virus. - FIV is a cat-only disease and cannot affect humans or other animals. - It is a virus that affects a cat's immune system over a period of years. - FIV is transferred through deep bite wounds. - FIV cats can lead a normal life as long as they are kept indoors & fed a high quality diet. - FIV negative and positive cats can live together as long as they are properly introduced and get along. - Two FIV positive cats can live together. Please don't let my FIV+ status scare you away! I can live a long, healthy, normal life in a house with other cats and pets! I hope you will stop by and see me soon. I really can't wait to find my own forever family and home. If you would like more information on FIV, just let the nice people at the rescue know, or check out these links! https://www.thespruce.com/fiv-in-cats-p2-552157 or http://www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc/Health_Information/brochure_fiv.cfm If you would like to meet me, please stop by and visit me at Oakville PetSmart or you can fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

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?

Say hello to stunning Bergen! Fluffy and simply gorgeous, this lovely girl is nine years old. Her fur is as soft as it looks! She has the most beautiful green eyes, that just seem to say "love me". Bergen is not much for playing, but the toy wand does seem to catch her attention! Bergen loves her food and treats, but is on a bit of a diet to help her get her girlish figure back. A soft couch to lounge on and a bright, sunny window to watch the birds will be just perfect for her. Bergen will do best as an only cat in a quiet, mature home. Bergen can also be a bit of a diva, so an experienced adapter who can recognize her signals when she wants to be left alone, would be best. Unfortunately, Bergen’s owner had developed allergies to her. They were also preparing for a move. After being boarded at a few different locations while her family moved, Bergen was originally supposed to stay with us for just a few months. Instead of continuing to board her, and causing additional stress on her, the family, while heartbroken, decided to surrender Bergen to us in order to find a permanent home of her own, where she won’t have to move again. Do you have the perfect forever home for Bergen? Do you have a nice comfy couch and bright, sunny window, just calling her name? If you would like to meet Bergen, please stop by and visit her at Oakville PetSmart or you can 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

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. If you are interested in adopting Claire and would like to meet her, please drop us an email at info@ ninthlifecatrescue.org or call (905) 301-3532 to arrange a time as she is currently at her foster home.
