Who doesn't love Peanut Butter and Nutella? What a yummy combination! Just like this delectable, long haired sibling pair! Peanut Butter is a stunning black & white boy and Nutella is a petite girl with gorgeous black hair. They are eight months old. PB is super friendly and loves to be on your lap. He purrs ALL the time! That beautiful long hair? He LOVES to have it brushed. PB loves everyone he meets. Nutella is super friendly as well, even though she's a bit shyer than her brother. She can be easily picked up and she just loves attention. Because PB is always on your lap, Nutella tends to stay back a bit. They both love catnip toys and the cat tree. A very playful pair, these guys go crazy for the feather wands! PB loves to sleep on the bed and play chase toes. While they aren't allowed real peanut butter or nutella for snacks, they do love their treats! They have met the dogs in their foster home and are doing well with them. Peanut Butter and Nutella have been together their entire lives, so they must to be adopted together. Peanut Butter and Nutella were found with their littermates outside. A kind lady took them inside, but unfortunately, couldn't keep all of them, so the rescue was asked to help. Who's hungry for this delicious pair of long haired beauties? Peanut Butter and Nutella will make a great addition to any home. You can meet Peanut Butter & Nutella at PetSmart on Brant St., or fill out an online application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

  • Domestic Short Hair

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Hi, my name is Athena and I am just two years old. I am very sweet and affectionate and love having my soft, black fur petted. I'm a tiny bit shy at first until I get to know you, but once I'm comfortable with you, I know you're going to love me. I'm adjusting well in the busy store and like to hang out at the top of the cat tree to watch all the action. When it gets crowded and noisy, I sometimes try to hide out in my litter box, but just until it's quiet again. I get along just fine with the other cats here. I haven't been in a home with a dog but I think I'd be ok with a calm laid back dog. I'm not a picky eater and enjoy both dry and wet food. I also love my cat treats and catnip. I'm a pretty laid back girl and would be happy just lounging around with you. I think I would do best in a quieter home with older respectful children that won't overwhelm me with too much action. I was rescued from outside with my kittens who have all found their forever home so it's now my turn to find my new forever home. I've been so busy trying to survive and care for my kittens I really haven't had much of a chance to play and have fun. I think I would like to play with toys in my new home once I settle in, as they look like so much fun. I'm pretty sure I would like a bird watching window too! If you are interested in adopting me, I am patiently waiting at the PetSmart Burlington at 1200 Brant street location or you can fill out an application: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

Welcome, Bluebelle! It's so nice to meet you! Why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself? Listen sweetheart, can we talk? You want me to tell everyone a bit about me? Well, where do I start? I love to talk, that's for sure. All day long. Do you have some lap space for me? I LOVE to sit on laps. You want a lap cat? I'm the best lap cat there is. Ask anyone! Have you seen those pictures of my bare belly? I just have to say...SOOO embarrassing, but I'm willing to bare all to let you know how much I love my belly rubbed and what I will be expecting of my new humans. Rumour has it, because I like to talk so much, I must have some Siamese in me. Bluebelle, how old are you? Well honey, you know a lady doesn't like to tell her age, but let me tell you a secret. Can you keep a secret? I'm only 1 1/2 years old! Do you see my tongue? Get used to it - I like to stick out my tongue. Did I mention that I'm super cuddly? Oh boy, how I love to cuddle. Cuddle. Talk. Cuddle. Talk. So we get that you like to talk...but what else can you... What else can I tell you about me? Listen doll, what more can I say? I would like someone who is home a lot to talk to. I can't go all day without someone to chat with. What's a girl to do? Talk to the walls? I don't think so. And I should also say that I prefer to be your one and only. I don't need any other cats to talk to - they really aren't very interesting. Humans. I need humans to talk to. Dogs...NO WAY! They scare me. Oh and I need someone to feed me small meals throughout the day. If I eat too fast and overindulge, there's a small chance we're going to see the food again and that's not very attractive. What? It's the truth. I always tell the truth. How did you come... How did I come to be here you ask? Well darling, let me tell you. I came from this place called Animal Services and I was pregnant when I was found. Did you hear that I had kittens? No? Well, I had kittens very young. But I was a great mom to them, that's for sure. They've been lucky enough to find their own homes, but as I've been telling everyone here, it's my turn now. It's been nice talking with you, Bluebelle. Do you have any final words? Hey, I could go on forever about myself, but there's only so much time. Come on over to the adoption centre, bring your coffee, and we'll chat. I'll sit on your lap and I'll tell you all about me. I'm at PetSmart Etobicoke, or you can just go ahead and fill out an application for me right now: http://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/

  • Domestic Short Hair

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Oh hi! Are you here to pet me? I LOVE pets! Oh yeah, under the chin, too. Will you rub my tummy? Oohhhhh yeah just like that. I think you're my new best friend. I'm Ronny. I'm two years young-really just an overgrown kitten! I'm sweet like honey and oh so cuddly. I'm not too picky who I cuddle with-my favourite people, a kitty buddy, or even by myself on a nice soft pillow or in the windowsill, watching the world go by. I'm a very laid-back boy who loves to enjoy the simple things-a cozy place to sleep, companionship, a full tummy, and a mouse on a string to play with (in that order). I’m a purrrfect companion because cuddling is one of my favourite things, but I'm not super clingy. Most of the time, I'm happy to do my own thing and relax. But when I get into love mode, I'll come find you for a good cuddle session. When you're on the couch watching TV, I'll come up for cuddles and purr, purr, purr. Sometimes, I purr so hard that I drool a little! I love chin scratches and tummy rubs, and curling up with you for a catnap. I love my humans and I make sure you know that by trying to groom your hair and covering your hand in kitty kisses during a love session. Oh and one of my other favourite things is dinnertime! It's a good thing I like my food, because I have to stay on this special diet called "Urinary SO", because I got these things called "crystals" that caused me a big problem once. But as long as I eat this food and get a lot of water, I shouldn't have any problems. Let me tell you my story. When I was a kitten, someone kept me in a crate in their garage with my mom and siblings for six months until we were rescued. There was nowhere to hide, and I was very scared. When I was rescued, I was in foster home for about a year, but they weren't sure how to help me be less scared, and my feline foster brother bullied me, so I hid most of the time to stay away from him. I got really good at hiding, and my foster family wouldn't know where I was unless I decided to come out (which was mostly at bedtime, to get some cuddles). I moved to a new foster home where no other cats could bully me. I'm still scared of open spaces that I don't know and in a new place, I like to find a cozy hiding spot, and slowly venture out from there to explore. But I'm getting much more confident. I'm still nervous around strangers, so when someone comes over to the house I usually just go sit in one of my favourite nap places on a high shelf. I just need some time and patience to get to know my new surroundings and people. So now I'm ready to find a special home of my own. My new family will have experience with shy cats, and be willing to take things slow at first while I learn to trust them and get to know the new house. I'm much calmer when there are other kitties around to keep me company, so I need a home with at least one calm, confident kitty friend. My foster mom doesn't know if I've ever met a dog, but she says I might like a doggy friend if they're calm and used to cats. I would love a family with older kids, because young ones might startle me.

Meet Bridgette! Bridgette is cute, super soft, sweet and has the most stunning green and yellow tinged eyes. This beautiful girl is approximately two years old. But she doesn't act a day over kitten! She is energetic, playful and runs super fast! Watch out - she'll even chase human legs playfully. Bridgette is not shy around people and has no problem falling asleep in a room full of new people. Bridgette is not a food motivated cat and is just starting to enjoy treats. She eats her food casually throughout the day and prefers to eat in a quiet spot. Bridgette wasn't sure about toys when first introduced to them, but now she's learning how much fun they can be - especially her red pompom toys! She is very independent, but also loves her humans. She'll sometimes let you know she's looking for you with her cute little chirpy meow. While she doesn't necessarily enjoy being picked up or carried, she is starting to warm up to it in her foster home. Bridgette enjoys sleeping in foster mom's bed too! Bridgette would probably do best in a home where her people are home frequently, or if there is a friendly cat to play with. Bridgette does not seem to be bothered by children. Bridgette was rescued from Animal Services where she was picked up as a stray. Given her good nature, she must have had a family at some point. Bridgette is a precious, happy girl who is sure to bring joy to her new forever home. If you think you can give Bridgette 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/

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?

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.

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.

  • Prefers home without dogsPrefers home without catsPrefers home without small kids
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.

"Star light, star bright First star I see tonight I wish I may, I wish I might Find my forever home tonight" "What are you doing Mystic?" "I'm just wishing on the stars that we find our forever home soon, Rocky. We've been here for a long time now, and as much as I love the volunteers here, I just want to go home." "I know, Mystic. 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!

  • Domestic Short Hair

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
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?

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/
