Adoptable Cats

Lucy

lucy largeColour: Black Torti
Breed: DSH
DOB: approx. 2008
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: July 13/17

Lucy turned up at a feeding station off Canada Way in Burnaby a couple of years ago and soon became a regular visitor. She refused to be handled so had to be trapped and although she had already been spayed and tattooed the tattoo was not decipherable so no owners or previous history could be obtained.

Lucy is a small non-aggressive cat who responds positively to gentle petting and handling. She remains extremely timid and fearful and spends most of her days in seclusion perhaps as a consequence of trauma experienced during her time as a homeless cat.

Lucy needs a safe low-stress environment and a patient one on one relationship until she can feel safe again.

Ebeny

Breed: DLH
DOB: 2010
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: August 27 2017

Ebeny's human has gone into hospital and can no longer provide a home and care for this very gentle, friendly cat girl so Ebeny had to come to us and we will find her a new home.

She has had her checkup and vaccines and dental cleaning so is totally ready for a new forever after home. She has been a indoor cat and would prefer a quiet home with adults.

Ziggy (special needs)

Breed: DSH
DOB: August 2015
Sex: Spayed/Female 
Arrival Date: July 2017

Ziggy is a beautiful cat with an angelic face. Unfortunately, she has had a bad start in life (not sure what happened to her) and as a result was surrendered to New West Animal Shelter because of aggressive behavior towards humans. In the year she spent at the shelter, she proved to be very disruptive and was fearful and aggressive towards other cats as well as volunteers. She was fostered in July and went to live in a household with three other cats. She has made good progress and no longer swats everybody -- her favourite activity is jumping in the bath (empty) and drinking out of the tap. At times she can be very sweet and affectionate with people but is still very fearful of any other cats. To continue her rehabilitation, we believe Ziggy needs to be in a household with no other pets. Given the right circumstances with lots of patience and love, we are confident she could blossom into a wonderful pet. We’re now looking for a permanent foster home for Ziggy. Cats placed in foster care by the society are eligible for financial assistance to cover veterinary bills as well as litter and food, as necessary. 

Kitty/Beaches

Breed: DSH
Sex: Female/Spayed
DOB: August 01/09
Arrival Date: October 25/16

Her name is Beaches but her people called her "Kitty". She's been an only cat since kittenhood and lived with adults only so not used to much "action". Her People are moving to Alberta to live with relatives and there is an allergy concern. (If Kitty - Bea's folks get a place of their own and she not adopted she might move to Alberta). She's a reserved introvert but not mean and once she gets to know someone, she's friendly. Needs a quiet home with adults only.

Finnigan

Breed: DSH
DOB: 2014
Sex: Male/Neutered 
Arrival Date: November 23/16

Finnegan is a handsome five year old tuxedo fellow. He arrived as a compassionate boarder but after ten long months his humans are still homeless so Finnegan needs a new home. He's an extrovert of the cat world and craves attention and people to interact with but he's not totally comfortable with other cats. Finnegan's had his checkup, vaccines and blood tests and a dental and now all he needs to make his life complete is a new home and people that he can call his own and the happily ever after is right around the corner.

Francine (special needs)

Breed: DSH

DOB: 2005
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: October 05/06

Francine is very timid but a very sweet cat and we would like to see her have a chance at a normal life and a real home as opposed to scurrying about an industrial yard and never getting enough food or shelter. Francine has made great progress overcoming some of her fears since she came to us in 2006. Francine has been at the shelter for a long time and may take quite a while to adjust to a new home. But with enough love and patience, she may be able to adjust because she does love attention and petting when she gets to know you. Best for a quiet home.

Bella

bella largeColour: Tortie & White
Breed: DSH
DOB:  2012
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: November 23/16

Bella has that hint of sadness in her eyes that cats get when people have let them down. First time her humans just moved out and left her on her own and she was taken in by friends. Other than having to live with an energetic younger cat her life returned to normal.  The next setback was even more traumatic and Bella ended up homeless . After a brief stopover at the SPCA Bella arrived at our shelter where she suffered the indignity of sharing space with other cats.

Bella would especially love to be a pampered princess and have her very own special human and that would be good for her waistline because she would have her very own special food bowl.

Her favourite pastime is watching the action around her but not taking any part in it.  It's going to take a bit of time and patience to put the sparkle back in this sweet torti's eyes but once you do you'll have a couch companion forever.

Spunky (Special Needs)

spunky largeColour: Tabby & White
Breed: DMH
DOB: October 2010
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: May 23/13

This semi-feral little cat was at the shelter in June 2013 and after her mats were shaved off she went back to her mom and bro at an autowreckers in Surrey. After her protector friend quit working there and moved to the interior she must have decided to go find him as she disappeared for about eight months.  She ended up at the Surrey Animal Centre as a stray, totally matted but otherwise okay so they shaved her and one of our people went and got her and here she is, back at the shelter. Our little diamond in the ruff is very sweet but a bit on the timid side. She has been used to being outdoors and will need easy access to the outside.
