All Adoptable Cats

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.

Laina (special needs)

laina largeColour: Black
Breed: DMH
DOB: 2005
Sex: Female/Spayed
Arrival Date: April 09/08

Laina came to RCHS as a three year-old in the spring of 2008, pregnant and homeless and very fearful. She has had a quiet loving foster home where she has been allowed to be the gentle introvert that she truly is. She enjoys the company of other cats and the opportunity to spend time outdoors during the day with the security of knowing the catdoor is near should she feel threatened. She needs a quiet home with adults – no children or dogs for this sensitive, shy feline princess.

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!

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.

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.

Salem, Tuppence and Socks

salem tuppence socks jpegThese three black and white DLH siblings have lived together for all of their 13 years and when they arrived only Socks had been neutered and we supposed that he had just grown accustomed to his sisters unusual behaviours. 

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.
