Adoptable Cats

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. 

Bella

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.

Sasha

Breed: DLH
DOB: September 2003
Sex: Spayed/Female 
Arrival Date: October 2017

Sasha is a beautiful cat with a long silky black coat, a white bib and a couple of white toes. She has the daintiest little meow and is very feminine in her manner and has probably lived indoors all her life. She is very affectionate and trusting, and expresses her love without reservation. Sasha is currently living in temporary foster care with several other cats with whom she has had little interaction ... she's neither aggressive nor timid and would probably be fine with other cats. As well, she has lived with a dog. If you’re looking for a wonderful companion, a cat to cuddle with, consider fostering Sasha

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.

Salem, Tuppence and Socks

Tuppence and Salem have now had their spay surgeries and are enjoying freedom from hormonal surges.

Socks, a large and lovable domestic long-haired chap, is very calm and self confident. He's protective of his little sisters as a big brother should be.

Tuppence and Salem (also domestic long-haired gals) are emotionally a one cat entity -- they eat from the same dish, sleep cuddled up together and lovingly groom one another and react in unison to life around them-especially to the other cats. They are sweet and gentle with people but a pair of warrior princesses when agitated by another feline. While it would be wonderful if this little family could stay together, these two, especially, must remain together. 

All three have had dentals, blood tests, vaccines, tattoos etc. and are ready for the next chapter in their cat life story.

Lucille

Breed: DSH
DOB: September 2004
Sex: Spayed/Female 
Arrival Date: January 14/17

Lucille was returned to RCHS along with her brother Mikey with whom she had lived since kittenhood and shared a special bond. Before we could try to find them a new home together Mikey's health failed rapidly and sadly they are now separated forever. Lucille came back to us with hyperthyroidism and has been treated at the Northwest Nuclear Medicine Clinic for animals so no longer requires twice daily medication. She has lived a rather sheltered indoor only life with adults and is as timid as she is lovely but she does very much crave and enjoy gentle affection and attention once she gets to know you. A quiet home and perhaps another cat would suit this tortie just fine.

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.

Boots

Breed: DSH
DOB: 2004
Sex: Male/Neutered
Arrival Date: August 27 2016

Boots-a special introvert, so gentle and easy going and so in need of a human to be his best friend. His human had to move and poor Boots couldn't go with him so he's come to RCHS for help to find a new home. When he's happy he has a special way of holding his tail in a curl over his back.

He had some crystal problems in the past and needs to stay on special veterinary food for life but other than that he's just had a complete checkup and a dental cleaning. 

Now if he could just find a relatively quiet home he'd keep that tail curled forever.
