Bow

4 Months old Male "Super Snuggly Mix!"

Hi! My name is Bow! I have a gorgeous coat of short silver hair and my tail has some stripes on it.

I love humans! Being snuggled is my favourite thing. I like being brushed, getting belly rubs, and climbing all over my foster mom’s lap!

I’m okay with being picked up. People have to move slowly with me at first, I can be a bit jumpy, but I only take seconds to start purring and rubbing up against your legs:)

I’m not a huge fan of other animals and am definitely happiest as the only animal in the home. In my foster home I am living with 2 resident dogs, one big and one small. I am working on getting more comfortable with them, I sniff them sometimes, but sometimes they scare me when they move too fast.

I love to play! My favourite toys are my tunnel, a mouse on a string and the laser pointer. But if I’m getting attention, pets, and cuddles from my humans, that's the best!

If your family could use a snuggle-bug that would soak up your attention, Bow is your man!

Bow knows how to use his litter box. Once you show him the appropriate places to scratch, he is great. Bow has been dewormed, had Revolution and his first vaccines. To apply to adopt Bow please click the “Adopt me!” symbol next to this handsome guys picture above!

Carolina

3 Months old 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 had a full checkup and all Vaccines to help keep her healthy, 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!

Cupid

9 Months old Neutered Male "Love Bug Mix!"

Hi, I’m Cupid! I came to ARF with a couple of my pals, and I love to play with them and the resident kitties!

I am usually fairly quiet but certainly let you know when I want some attention! My foster family is surprised at how loud my meow can be for a small guy!

I love to watch the birds in the bird feeder out the front window! I’m really glad my foster Dad put that bird feeder there!

I love to play with my toys, especially furry ones! I will carry those all around the house! If you pick me up, I’ll stay for a short bit, but you see, I am a very busy kitten, and I have things to do and explore!

I get along very well with other cats, and love to snuggle up with them!

I am vaccinated, micro-chipped, dewormed, and eat my kibble and use my litter box like a champ! What are you waiting for? Click the Adopt Me button to the right of my photo!!!

Effie

Effie has received her first shots, micro-chip, Revolution and Strongid. To apply for this gorgeous kitty, click Adopt me! icon right beside her photo above!

Fawn

3 Months old Spayed Female "Delightfully Adorable Mix!"

This delicate lady has been living happily in a household with an older cat and lively children.

She is very social, but also likes to follow and keep company with the other cat.

Fawn is active and playful and will seek out her people to chat them up. She is not one to stay still very long as she has so much to explore and so many kitten things to do. Fawn would be a welcome pet into any household and would especially like some company!

Fawn is spayed, vaccinated, Revolution treated, micro-chipped and is using her litter box and scratch post like a pro!

Freddie

12 Months old Neutered Male "Loves Kitty Friends Mix!"

Hi, I’m Freddie! I came to ARF with a couple of my pals, and I love to play with them and the resident kitties! Speaking of other kitties... did I tell you yet how much I LOVE other kitties? I want to be friends with as many other kitties as I can!

I'm a vocal boy... I'll let you know when I want my kibble or some attention:) I love to watch the birds out the window, one of my most favourite things to do! I also love to play with my toys, especially crinkly ones and furry mousies!

I am a little shy at first with people but I do love it when they pet me! I am very curious... the first one to explore new things to see what I can get into!

I get along very well with other cats, and love to snuggle up with them! Sometimes they will groom me and I love it!

I am vaccinated, micro-chipped, dewormed, and eat my kibble and use my litter box like a champ! What are you waiting for? Click the Adopt Me button to the right of my photo!!!

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!

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.

Pickles

5 Months old Spayed Female "Quiet 'n' Cuddly Mix!"

Pickles is a lovely dilute torti, with mostly charcoal grey fur and a dusting of creamy white. Her brother Dill is quite attached to her, but she seems just as content hanging out with the other cat or lying in the sun.

She loves people and is always ready to play with cat toys. She can be skittish around sudden noises but recovers quickly to see what's going on. Pickles is usually purring, especially at the sound of someone petting or talking to her.

Pickles is spayed, has had first vaccinations, micro-chip, and been treated with Revolution and Strongid. She always uses her litter box and politely leaves the resident cat's food alone:) To apply for this gentle sweetheart, click Adopt me! next to her photo above!

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

4 Months old Female "Calm, Gentle Mix!"

Polly is a 4 month old 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 abbatoir 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 very well!

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 plays with her brother, and enjoys being petted by the children and adults in the home. She is still warming up to the dog. She is frightened and will often leave the room when the dog comes in, but she is doing less leaving lately:)

Polly is the gentler and calmer of the siblings. 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 fairly independent and does not require a lot of attention to be happy. However, she does enjoy human company.

Polly is 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!

Rue

2 Months old Female `Super Social Mix!`

Hi my name is Rue and if you are looking for a super friendly and social kitty, you have found her right here! I love people and all animals too.

I am a very happy girl and love to be in the Centre of the action. I love to play and then settle in on your lap for lots of snuggle time. Right now I live with multiple kitty and doggie friends and I love them all.

Rue has her first shots, micro-chip, Revolution and Strongid. To apply for this sweet ragdoll mix, click Adopt me next to her photo above!

Sasha

3 Months old 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 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!
Adopt Sasha

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!

Trudy

2 Months old Female "ARF's "Survivor" Mix!"

Introducing Trudy! This gorgeous girl has a beautiful personality to match!

Trudy is very playful and enjoys being with the other kittens in her foster home. She can be a bit shy at first but once she is comfortable her true personality shines!

Trudy had a very rough start to life. She had almost drowned when she was rescued and just barely survived. As a result, her head occasionally moves sporadically and she has difficulty jumping up onto higher places. But she is a normal kitty in every other way:)

Trudy spends her days chasing kitty toys and soaking up attention from her humans. She will make a wonderful addition to a forever family!

Trudy is a perfect little lady when it comes to using her litterbox and enjoys kitten kibble and canned food. She has been micro-chipped, dewormed, and has received Revolution and her first set of vaccines. To apply to adopt Trudy, click on the "Adopt Me" icon next to this sweet girl's picture!

Zaida

6 Years old Spayed Female "Cuddly Affectionate Mix!"

Zaida was rescued by ARF after she was found with some serious injuries, and even more serious malnutrition concerns. The professionals think that she may have battled with a wild animal but she held her own, and earning the name Zaida (Arabic for prosperous and fortunate!)

The co-ordinators of ARF have never seen a kitty in such a terrible state, but Zaida pulled through and is ready to love again. Zaida still has some “battle wounds” around her ears and on the surface of her nose, but after some serious medical attention, Zaida is ready to find her forever home!

Although she was very shy at first, Zaida has really warmed up to her foster mom, and loves all of the attention that she gets! She has even started warming up to her foster sister who is another loving adopted kitty from ARF! Together they are very social and they love spending time with each other.

Zaida has a unique purr due to her previous injuries, and her foster mom often calls her a little piggy because she almost sounds like she’s oinking! That doesn't stop her from weaving between the legs of the people who show her kindness, and from rolling around on her toys to show her playful side.

Zaida is looking forward to meeting you and finding her forever home! She has been spayed and micro-chipped and is up to date on all of her shots. To adopt this cuddly love-machine, just click on the Adopt me! icon beside her name above!
