Adoptable Cats

Patches

patches largeColour: Calico
Breed: DSH
DOB: Spring 2008
Sex: Female Spayed
Arrival Date: April 22/17 

Patches is only calico on the outside-a gentle introvert  dwells within. She didn't always have a home and raised several litters of kittens on the street before she was rescued and spayed. Patches lived happily in the shadow of her socially extroverted brother until dogs became part of the family and then she moved into a cupboard to escape puppy energy.

Patches and her brother Blacky came to live at our shelter in March when her family had to move and it's been difficult for "Her Shyness" to adjust to the other cats.Pretty Patches loves one on one attention and will thrive as an only cat in a peaceful home.

Lucille

lucille largeColour: Dilute Tortie & White
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.

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.

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.

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.

Salter

salter largeColour: Black
Breed: DSH
Sex: Male/Neutered
DOB: September 2000
Arrival Date: September 12, 2004

Salter was abandoned in the Queensborough area of New Westminster where he lived on his own with help from some friendly neighbours. He's very loving but a bit shy -- that's what living on the streets can do to a guy!

Misty

Breed: DSH
DOB: November 2009
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: July 11/17

Misty’s owner has died so this beautiful, friendly girl is an orphan. She has lived with an older dog.  Scared of other cats so needs to be an only cat.

Kitty/Beaches

beachesi largeColour: Black & White
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.
