This Weeks Kitty Showings!



Carolina

2 Months old Female Rascal-ee Sweet Mix!

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

So tiny she still wobbled when she walked! Carolina quickly got 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 being tiny enough to hide behind a broom playing peek-a-boo with her sister.

Carolina 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.

As Carolina grew, she was allowed more freedoms in the house. She has quickly found favourite napping spaces in each area. 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.

From her first day at just over 4 weeks old, 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 which she is big enough to climb in. There have been no accidents at all.

Carolina uses the scratching post and basket regularly, and tolerated her first “pedicure” like a pro to keep her front toenails short.

Carolina has received a full checkup, her first set of Vaccines to help keep her healthy, including Rabies, which she handled well, and a 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.

Charlie

3 Years old Neutered Male Handsome, Sensitive Mix!

Charlie came into ARF’s care after almost a year outside on his own, always in view of a dedicated ARF volunteer. Although he came to be fed, he always kept his distance until one very cold winter day he just came inside. A serious hip injury hindered his progress as he was not about to let any human come near. He allowed the medical attention he needed and the administering of medication but not one touch.

Slowly he allowed a his foster mom to get nearer and nearer... bolting behind his favorite hiding spot in the basement. He finally took food from her hand and then allowed a pat.

One day last spring he simply came upstairs. With several foster and resident cats to cope with, he has worked through each relationship trying and trying until he got it right. He always kept his eye on the humans. He accepted treats from the grandchildren in the foster home and finally a pat.

Charlie now eats in the kitchen with all the foster lined up in a row. He accepts pats and loves to have his ears rubbed and his chin scratched. He rubs the legs of whoever is dishing up the cat food and purrs like a well oiled machine. He plays with one of the foster cats and sleeps with her as well. He is always startled by the new babies but when they get mobile and climb up to meet him, he carefully grooms them and lets them climb all over him.

Charlie has come far but he still has a way to go. He is looking for a loving home where he will be accepted and where there will be a willingness to work with him and be patient with his baby steps. He is a big boy on the outside but inside he is so shy and sensitive.

Charlie has been micro-chipped, and treated for parasites and fleas and his shots are up to date as well. To adopt this handsome boy, please click on the “Adopt me!” icon beside his name.

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!!!

Freda

2 Months old Female "Late Night Player" Mix!

Hello, my name is Freda! I cam to ARF when I was just a few weeks old with my brother Salvadore. I am named Freda after Freda Kahlo, because I have markings that look like a unibrow:)

I love playing with my brother Salvadore, and even though he’s bigger, I can hold my own. I get very sleepy after meals and often nap near the window in the sun in the afternoons.

I purr very loudly when you rub my belly. I love playing with my brother so much that sometimes we stay up late, and fall asleep after our human has gone to bed:)

I am great at using the litter box and love my kitten kibble. I have received my first vaccinations, micro-chip, dewormer and Revolution. To apply, click the Adopt me! button above next to my picture!
Adopt Freda

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!

Jeffrey

2 Months old Male ARF's "Bachelor" Mix!

Introducing Jeffrey! It’s hard to believe that so much personality can be packed into one little kitten! Jeffrey is always looking for his next adventure and is full of curiosity and playfulness!

Jeffrey was rescued at two weeks of age after being found abandoned and alone. He was bottle-fed by ARF volunteers and has grown into a healthy, happy kitten who enjoys life to the fullest!

After a day of kitty play, this little fluffball enjoys snuggling with his humans and curling up beside them to go to sleep. He is a wonderful combination of affection and playfulness!

Jeffrey is a perfect little gentleman when it comes to using his litterbox and enjoys kitten kibble and canned food. He has been micro-chipped, dewormed, and has received Revolution and his first set of vaccines. To apply to adopt Jeffrey, click on the "Adopt Me" icon next to his handsome picture.

Mack

5 Years old Neutered Male "Steal your Heart" Mix!

What a special guy Mr. Mack is! This gentle soul has lived the last five years of his life outdoors, braving the elements and searching for food. He is thoroughly enjoying indoor life and experiencing the love that humans can provide.

Mack can be shy at first but quickly warms up for pats, ear scratches, and ESPECIALLY belly rubs. When he greets his familiar humans he instantly rolls over for a belly rub, purring the entire time! Sometimes he needs to be reminded that he is not a dog (:

Mack lives with other felines and gets along well with all of them. He has a gentle personality and would love a quiet forever home with lots of human attention. Mack has so much love to offer and will make a wonderful companion!

Mack is fully vaccinated, neutered, micro-chipped, and has tested negative for feline leukemia. He is a gentle fellow who will steal your heart. To apply to meet Mack, click on the “Adopt Me” icon beside his handsome picture above!

Malala

12 Months old Spayed Female "Quiet as a Mouse" Mix!

Hi there! I was given a very special name by my human foster sister to help me be as brave as I can be. I am a very quiet and well-behaved kitty who always uses her litter box and scratching post.

I live with multiple kitty and doggie friends and am good about sharing my things and space with them. I am working really hard at learning to trust the humans in my home. I will sit on the stairs and lay on the sofa and even sometimes carefully sniff a hand but am still learning that human touch is a good thing.

Before meeting my foster family, I was living outside without any human contact at all. I will need a family that will be kind and patient and let me work at my own pace. Recently, I have begun greeting my foster mom at breakfast with a soft little meow when she puts my food out. Otherwise, I am as quiet as a mouse and just really need someone that is willing to give me the second chance that I so deserve.

Malala is spayed, fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and received Revolution. I am also a pretty small kitty, weighing in at just below 5lbs. To apply, click Adopt me! beside her photo above!

McGonigle

7 Years old Spayed Female Super Friendly Brown Tabby 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.

Ninja

3 Months old Male Adorable Rascal Mix!

You want entertaining? We have entertaining!

This young man is one busy little rascal! Sociable and warm, he loves to play with anyone and anything.

Ninja lives with school-aged children, an adult dog, an adult cat, and a sibling kitten, and he gets along with all of them. If you attend a showing, he will be the one making all of the noise (though he is quiet when not confined).

Ninja is curious and loves to be a part of things so he gets into everything! He is extremely handsome with a short, shiny coat and beautiful eyes.

He is very cuddly, especially when he is tuckered out from all of his antics. Ninja is growing like a weed and may turn out to be a larger than average adult cat.

Want a kitten who will brighten up your home? Ninja is your guy. Ninja has received his first set of vaccinations, tested Feline Leukemia negative, and is micro-chipped. To apply, simply click Adopt me! icon to the right of his photo above!

Patches came to us with two other cats, who have since been adopted. Now that she is on her own, she has really come out of her shell!

Patches is shy at first, but once she gets to know you better she won’t wander far! She loves being near people and getting pet, scratched, and the occasional belly rub. Patches is a very playful cat and loves her toys

When not playing, Patches is exploring and looking for new places to nap. She is very curious and adventurous and loves looking out of the window of her foster parents apartment.

While Patches likes to be close to people, she would prefer to be the one to do the approaching:) She likes to be pet and scratched under the chin and will even sit on your lap, but does not like being picked up as much.

Patches gets along really well with other cats, especially ones young and playful like herself.

This very pretty gal is vaccinated, micro-chipped, dewormed and tested negative for feline leukemia. To apply, simply click Adopt Me! icon to the right of her photo above!

Petrie

2 Months old Female Playful and Curious Mix!

Hi there. My name is Petrie because I was so super tiny when I arrived into ARF care!

I needed to be rescued at about 4 weeks old because my mommy didn't want to take care of me anymore. I was so sick with both a severe respiratory infection and eye infection too. After wonderful vet and foster care, I am feeling so much better and ready to find my forever family. I will need inexpensive eye drops to keep my eyes healthy but am very good about letting you put them in for me.

I am a social and very friendly kitten. My foster family says that I am the perfect blend of curious and playful. I love life and love to play. I get along fabulously with all of my kitty and doggie friends and have even interacted with some guinea pigs.

I use both a litter box and a scratching post reliably and have gotten used to a crate for travel purposes. I am a super happy girl!

I have been dewormed, micro-chipped and received my first vaccines. I can wait to meet you! To apply for this cutie, click Adopt Me! right beside her photo above!

Pipsqueak

8 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!

Salvadore

2 Months old Male "Hide n Seek Player" Mix!

Hello, my name is Salvadore! I came to ARF when I was just a few weeks old with my sister Freda. I had the sniffles for a few weeks but I am all better now:)

I am a very playful kitten! My favourite things to play with include my sister, hair, cat toys, and toes. I am a very curious kitten and love to explore new places. I like to curl up in small spaces waiting for my foster mom to find me:)

The way to win me over is belly rubs, ear scratches and cuddles. I especially like to cuddle and sleep with my sister in our cozy bed.

I am great at using the litter box and eat kitten kibble like a champ. I have received my vaccinations, micro-chip, dewormer and Revolution. To apply, just click Adopt me! right next to my photo above!
Adopt Salvadore

Sasha

2 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 received her first set of vaccines, including Rabies, as well as Revolution and dewormer. 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!

Simone

2 Months old Female Kitty Snuggler Mix!

Simone and her siblings Silken and Stefan have been bottle-fed from just a few days old, so they often seek out people for company.

Simone's favourite spot to sleep is with her sister and she would do well with another kitty playmate in the house. She is comfortable around the other cats and is still very curious about the resident senior dog. Simone has lots of kitty energy but is also gentle and cuddly.

She uses her litter box and scratching post reliably and tolerates having her nails trimmed. Simone just returned from the vet with first vaccines, dewormer and Revolution for fleas. This litter all have a clean bill of health and are an ideal weight.

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!

Stefan

2 Months old Male Purring Machine Mix!

This wonderful little kitten started out as the runt of the litter but has caught up to his sisters Simone and Silken!

Bottle-fed from a young age, these guys love people, which makes nail-clipping for example much easier. Stefan is generally independent; the first in his litter to figure out eating solid food and the litter box at 4 weeks.

When he's not playing or exploring, Stefan is often following his foster mom. He gets along with everyone and plays gently.

Stefan always uses the litter box and scratching post. He has had first vaccines, as well as flea medication and dewormer. To apply for this purring machine, click Adopt me! right beside his 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!
