Blu

12 Months old Neutered Male "Perfect Companion" Mix!

Hi! My name is Blu. I am a super social and snuggly kitty who gets along well with cats, dogs, and children too.

I am a very laid back guy who wants nothing more than a cozy napping place and love.

I am quiet and calm, making me the perfect companion. Do you have room for a guy like me? I'll be waiting:)

Blu is fully vaccinated, dewormed, micro-chipped and received Revolution. To apply, click Adopt me! beside his gorgeous photo above!

Carolina

5 Months old Spayed Female "Sweet Tiny Adventurer Mix!"

Carolina is a beautiful girl, sweet and tangy like barbeque sauce! She arrived in ARF’s care with her sibling Sasha at approximately 4-5 weeks of age, after being rescued from a ditch.

So tiny she still wobbled when she walked! Carolina quickly became comfortable living in a home with people and other cats. Within a few short days she could be found climbing on the toilet pipes, or hiding behind a broom playing peek-a-boo with her sister.

She is a confident kitten, quick to make friends with the adults and older child living in her foster home as well as the two adult cats. She is an adventurer who tries new things!

Carolina is learning that the adult cats don’t always want to play but she keeps trying! As she grows, she has found favourite napping spaces. She loves the wicker cat basket here, climbing the sides of it, launching herself off the top, or hiding in the “cave” to pounce on her sibling or unsuspecting human feet that walk by!

Carolina would be happiest with another cat to play with, and a busy household, as she loves the activity and company of people.

Right from the start she has used a litter box; at first it was a tiny shoe box provided for her and her sister. Since then she has graduated to a “big girl” box. Carolina uses the scratching post and basket regularly, and tolerated her first “pedicure” like a pro to keep her front toenails short.

Carolina has been spayed, fully vaccinated, including Rabies, as well as preventative medicine for internal parasites (like worms) and external parasites (like fleas and lice). She has also been micro-chipped to help keep her safe in case she ever gets out or lost. To apply, simply click Adopt me! next to her photo above!

Catnip

12 Months old Spayed Female "Super Social Sweetheart" Mix!

Meet catnip!

If you are looking for the perfect blend of snuggly, social, and cuddly, then Catnip is the girl for you!

She is a very relaxed kitty who lives with both cats and dogs. She gets along very well with all of the cats in her home but is still quite nervous of the dogs.

Catnip adores the humans (both child and adult) in her foster home and loves to curl up on the sofa or the bed for lots of pets. She loves to be out in the open and follow her people around. She is an extremely affectionate cat!

This gal came into ARF care with two kittens in tow and was an excellent momma cat. Now it is her turn to find the perfect forever family and to get all of the attention and love that she so deserves.

Catnip is spayed, fully vaccinated, dewormed, micro-chipped and received Revolution. To apply or this beautiful gal, click Adopt me! right beside her photo above!

2 Months old Female ADOPTED!!

Gracie

2 Years old Spayed Female "Natural Born Nurturer Mix!"

This beautiful girl came into ARF care, mothering 4 of her own 1 week old kittens. She adopted an additional 3 kittens who would have died if it wasn’t for her love and mothering nature!

Now that all 7 of her kittens have been adopted, it's her time to find a family she can call her very own!

Gracie is such a gentle soul. She has come so far since she first arrived into foster care. She has ALWAYS been welcoming to new feline friends, as well as canine. But it took her awhile to trust the human kind. NOW, all she wants to do, is be near her foster Mommie!!!

She loves belly rubs, squeaky toys, treats and a little conversation. She enjoys being close to you but not sitting on your lap all day long :) She would be a great companion for another furry friend or the human kind that spends a lot of time at home. As she is social, the ideal family would be someone that is around often, or if away during the day, has another furry friend to keep her company.

Gracie is litter-trained, uses a scratching post and would be a beloved companion for life!

She is spayed, fully vaccinated, de-wormed, Revolution treated, as well as micro-chipped. If you think you would be a great match and able to provide the love and security this beautiful girl needs, click the "Adopt ME" icon beside her photo!

Hazelnut

5 Months old Spayed Female "Cuddle Me" Mix!

Introducing Hazelnut.... one of ARF’s Little Peanuts! Hazelnut is a beautiful brown tabby with a sweet personality.

She is outgoing, with a hint of mischievousness, yet full of love and affection!

Hazelnut lives with her siblings, Macadamia, Cashew, Pistachio, and Pecan. She loves to romp and play, chase her kitty toys, and is always on the lookout for her next adventure.

Hazel is eager to greet her humans when she sees them and loves to be picked up and cuddled. She is the perfect package of playfulness and affection and will make a wonderful addition to a forever family.

Hazel is a perfect lady when it comes to using her litterbox. She has a great appetite and goes “nutty” for her canned food each day.

Hazelnut is spayed, fully vaccinated (including
rabies), micro-chipped and has been dewormed. To apply for this little peanut, click on the “Adopt Me” icon next to Hazelnut’s picture above!

McGonigle

7 Years old Spayed Female "Super Friendly Mix!"

Are you looking for a beautiful and affectionate cat that will follow you about?

McGonigle came to us, traveling by crate in a car full of dogs and puppies for many hours, from one of the Northern communities we work with. Her claim to fame is even after all that travel and change, she walked out of the crate purring, so happy to be out and with people.... affectionately rubbing against us as she started to explore her new home.

It did take her a little while to become accustomed to the other kittens and adult cat in her foster home. The three kittens quickly showed her that it is fun to play, and they mean her no harm. While she still prefers the company of people, she has learned to respect the other cats.

She seeks attention from adults and kids alike, whoever has come to visit us. McG would be happiest in a home with older children or adults, someone willing to lavish attention on her.

She uses the litter box and scratching post regularly, and tolerates her weekly “pedicure” to keep her front toenails short. As long as I keep the stream of treats coming, she is content to let me handle her feet for this quick preventative trim.

McGonigle has had a full checkup, a full set of vaccines to help keep her healthy, which she handled like pro, as well as preventative medicine for internal parasites (like worms) and external parasites (like fleas). She has also been micro-chipped to help keep her safe in case she ever gets out or lost.

Octavia

4 Months old Spayed Female "Shy, Observant" Mix!

Hi there. I'm Octavia!
I have been in foster care with my siblings from the time I was four weeks old. I am finally ready to find my very own forever family.

I am very shy when meeting new humans so require a patient and quiet family who will let me take the time to get used to things at my own speed.

I enjoy short snuggles with my foster mom and love to observe everything going on in my foster family. Except for the broom - I absolutely love to chase the broom! So much fun!

I get along extremely well with the other kitties in my home. I quite enjoy their company actually:) My foster mom often catches me cozying with my kitty friends on her bed. I am nervous of the dogs in my home when they bark at me but tolerant of them the rest of the time.

I will be great company and a great companion for an adult only home or a home with older children who will let me grow and explore at my own pace.

Octavia has been spayed, fully vaccinated, de-wormed, given Revolution and has a micro-chip! To apply for this very special gal, click Adopt me! right beside her photo above!

Parker

3 Months old Male "Puts a Smile on your Face" Mix!

He may not be as laid back as his sister, Pringels, but once he gets a bit tuckered out he’s looking for a lap to snuggle up on:)

Especially at night, Parker is always curled up with his foster mom. This energetic, playful kitten can definitely always put a smile on your face and will add some fun to the household!

He is litter trained and has been awesome with no accidents since he came in almost one month ago. He did great at his first vet visit and has his first set of shots, Revolution, micro-chip and is dewormed. To apply for Parker you can click the “Adopt me!” icon at the top right corner of his profile:)

Pipsqueak

12 Months old Neutered Male "Quiet and Shy Guy" Mix!

My name is Pipsqueak but my Foster mommy calls me Pippy for short.

When I first came into foster care I was a very shy guy and didn’t trust humans so much. However, with the patients of my foster mommy, I now enjoy being petted and even seek out my morning snuggles.

I am discovering that I like it so much that I sound like a motor boat and even have to wake my foster mommy up if she doesn’t give me cuddles soon enough!

I currently live with my foster mommy and my furry feline foster sister. I think I would do much better in a quiet home with another feline companion. Those big creatures that my foster mommy calls “dogs” might be a little too much for me right now. I am still a little worried at times around humans, but when I trust you there is no turning back!

I am still a kitten at heart and love to play with my toys and chase things. I do use the litter box like a big boy and have never had an accident. I am really good with the scratching post and my foster mommy says she has never had a problem with me scratching furniture.

Pippy is fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered. He has received Revolution, Strongid and tested negative for feline leukemia. To apply for this quiet guy, click Adopt Me! right beside his photo!

Polly

6 Months old Spayed Female "Calm, Gentle Mix!"

Polly is a soft, petite, short-haired, black kitten. She and her brother were brought in to ARF’s care after they were found in a manure pile at the abattoir when they were 5 weeks of age!

When she first arrived, Polly was difficult to feed and made a rather peculiar noise. When she was old enough, she underwent exploratory surgery, which revealed a polyp in her nasopharyngeal cavity that ARF’s amazing vet was able to remove. She healed perfectly!

Since that time, Polly has become a good eater and is the quietest kitty in the house. She is still on the small side but is healthy and happy. She enjoys being petted by the children and adults in the home, and she has learned to ignore the big dog.

Polly is gentle and relatively calm. She is happy to play with a toy in a calm fashion, either by herself or with others, and she has never intentionally scratched or bit any of the people in the home (which is saying a lot for a kitten).

She is curious about the water and has also taken to climbing and to bug-chasing as hobbies. She is fairly independent and does not require a lot of attention to be happy. However, she does enjoy human company!

Polly is spayed, Feline Leukemia negative, up-to-date on her boosters, and micro-chipped. She would love to find a calm, loving home to call her own. Simply click Adopt me! icon above, next to her photo, to apply!

Sasha

5 Months old Spayed Female "Beautiful Spirit" Mix!

She arrived in ARF’s care with her sibling Carolina who were both rescued from a ditch.

So tiny, Sasha still wobbled when she walked! Sasha quickly became comfortable living in a home with people and other cats. Within a few short days, she could be found climbing on the toilet pipes, or hiding behind a broom playing peek-a-boo with her sister!

While Sasha is a little more timid with people, when left alone she is very confident and loves playing with her sibling. She is learning that the other two adult cats living here don’t always want to play, but she keeps trying!

Sasha loves the whicker cat basket which allows her to watch what’s going on, and stay hidden at the same time. Sasha also loves climbing the sides of it, launching herself off the top to pounce on her sibling below!

She is slowly learning that people can be trusted even if we do move suddenly. And, we give good ear scratches and belly rubs!

Sasha would be happiest with another cat to play with and a quiet predictable house. Preferably with older children or adults only, as she finds young children a little disconcerting.

Sasha's first litter box was a tiny shoe box. Since then she has graduated to a “big girl” box now that she is big enough to climb in:) There have been no accidents at all!

Sasha uses the scratching post regularly, and tolerated her first “pedicure” to keep her front toenails short... as long as I keep the stream of treats coming, she is learning to let me handle her feet for this quick preventative trim.

Sasha is spayed, fully vaccinated, including Rabies, and has received Revolution and dewormer too. She has also been micro-chipped to help keep her safe in case she ever gets out or lost. To apply for this sweet girl, click Adopt me! above next to her photo!

Skittles

3 Years old Spayed Female "Sweet Beauty Mix!"

Skittles is a beautiful tortoise shell kitty with orange and caramel splashes, and at the tip of her tail it’s all orange!

When Skittles first came into her new foster home, with her sibling Sookie, she was terrified of everyone, anything that moved, and loud noises. At first she was happy to remain in one room, right at the top of a cupboard, where she felt safe and secure. With a little time and patience, she has become comfortable with humans and content with her indoor life:)

It is easy to get very attached to Skittles as she loves to sit on your lap to receive lots of cuddles and attention. When she gets down, she flops on her back, and looks very cute when she looks up at you.

Skittles has just started learning to play with kitty toys and she enjoys them very much. She loves to wrestle with her sibling Sookie and our resident cats too.

Skittles is being fostered in a busy home with her sibling Sookie, resident cats, and young teenage children. She is a very special little kitty who just needs a some time to adjust to all her new surroundings. Skittles is gaining confidence everyday! She just needs lots of love, a gentle voice and plenty of treats.

Skittles ideal forever home would likely be one without small children, as she can get startled by loud noises. Skittles will be a very good companion cat for anybody, as she follows you around the house.

Skittles is on hard food all the time, but does enjoy a little soft food at night time. Skittles has been spayed, has had her full set of vaccinations, been dewormed and micro-chipped and received Revolution. To apply for this gentle beauty, click Adopt Me icon next to her photo!

Tuna

3 Months old Female "Three footed Sweetheart" Mix!

Hi there. I'm Tuna! I am a very petite little girl who's as quiet as can be. I am a wee bit shy still but sure do like my snuggles.

I get along with the other kitties in my home and am still trying to understand those big dogs:) I am looking for a quiet home that will love me for exactly who I am. I was born with only three feet so I do need someone that is understanding of my differences.

I am learning how to climb and play just like the other kittens in my home. I prefer low perches or small steps so that I can get around a bit easier. I will be great company and a great companion for an adult only or a home with older children who will let me grow and explore at my own pace. In return, I promise to love you forever and ever!

Tuna received her first shots, dewormer, Revolution and micro-chip. To apply for this sweet feline, click Adopt me icon right beside her photo above!
