Adoption Event

Adoption Event

PetSmart Charities is hosting another adoption event the weekend of May 17-18-19. Ninth Life Cat Rescue will have cats available at our three PetSmart locations.

We expect to have kittens and many lovely adult cats available at all locations. Please note that kittens under six months of age must be adopted in pairs unless there is another dog or cat in the new home.

The cost is $195.00 CASH each. Cats are up to date on immunization and microchipped. Older cats will be neutered and neutering is included in the cost for younger kittens. You must have a carrier to transport your new pet.

Burlington and Oakville locations also have bunnies for adoption. The Oakville location will again feature a bake sale.

300 CATS

300 CATS

In today’s rescue news, we were asked to help when 300 cats were recently found living in one apartment. Of course we couldn’t say no. Today, several volunteers were on hand at our vet to meet & greet 25 of these cats that were delivered to us from Toronto.

Not surprisingly, these cats were scared, but none were aggressive. In fact, they are all very sweet. Surprisingly, they do appear to be in good health, aside from being a bit malnourished and dehydrated.

They will spend the next few days at the vet where they will have full health checks, including vaccinations and spay or neuter. From there, they will be placed in foster homes before adoption.

Thank you to the volunteers who were on hand to assist and we send a huge thank you to Dr. Padma and her staff at Rivergrove Animal Hospital for taking in all 25 cats.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE
As you can imagine, there will be considerable costs associated with helping these cats. If you would like to donate to their care,
no amount is too small.

WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR FOSTERS

Bunnies!

Bunnies!

Both the Oakville and Burlington PetSmart locations have rabbits for adoption. We have photos of some of them in this post but please visit the location to confirm those available, find out more about the bunny you are interested in adopting, and to complete an adoption application.

If you you are wondering if a rabbit is the best pet for you, here is an article from Spruce Pets to read.

Also, here are three brief articles from PetSmart:

Indoor Kitty

Indoor Kitty

Ninth Life Cat Rescue insists that all cats adopted from us be kept as indoor pets. It offers the best chance for a long, healthy life for your pet. Additionally, many cities such as Mississauga and Oakville now have by-laws stating that cats cannot run loose outdoors.

Keep your cat(s) safe from communicable diseases, suffering injury from dogs or other predators such as coyotes, injuries from cat fights, avoid problems with neighbours, and your cat getting lost or possibly hit by a car.

From Petplace: Seven Summer Dangers for Your Pet Cat

Some of the cats and kittens we offer for adoption have always been indoors and know nothing different. Others might have been living outdoors short or long term. Once you get them home, they may or may not want to get outside again. Here is some information to help with transitioning your pet to staying indoors.

Training Your Cat to Not Meow to Go Outside

Some people have successfully trained their cats to walk on a leash outside. Never use the harness and leash to tie your cat outside. You must stay with kitty at all times. 2019 Cat Life Today review of cat harnesses.

Walking Your Cat

Another option to allow kitty some outdoor time is an outdoor catio of some kind. There are many types available and/or plans for do-it-yourself versions.

Fostering Cats & Kittens

Fostering Cats & Kittens

FOSTERS NEEDED!

This is our busiest time of the year. We get many calls a day asking for help. While we would love to help every cat we get called for, we can’t do it without fosters. And we desperately need more fosters now.

If you can provide a safe, warm, loving space for as little as 3-4 days to several months, we need you!

Please take the first step in helping us to help them. Fill out a foster application today:
