Adoptable Cats

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.

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!

Boots

boots largeColour: Black & White
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.

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.

Felix

felix largeColour: Black
Breed: DSH
DOB: 2003
Sex: Male/Neutered
Arrival Date: January 26/11

Felix lived happily with his own personal human for the first eight years of his life and had no idea that he was a "cat" so it came as quite a shock when he found himself surrounded by "cats " in a shelter. He's a big guy with a big personality-totally outgoing and self confident and he loves people and is far more comfortable with humans than other cats but he's developed a tolerant camaraderie with poor socially challenged Cash and they've had three perfectly wonderful years together. It would be the finest act of kindness for them to have a home together in their remaining time. Felix has had the complete geriatric check up plus a dental and would leave that shelter in a heartbeat!

Francine (special needs)

francine largeColour: Black & White
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.

Cash

cash largeColour: Black
Breed: DSH
DOB: Spring 2007
Sex: Male/Neutered
Arrival Date: November 25/07

Cash thought he was set for life in a loving foster home along with his older and more worldly friend and mentor, Big Felix, but after three happy years it all came to a sudden end when the apartment building changed owners and Cash and Felix had to leave.

Cash hasn't had many breaks in life from being born into a large cat colony, trapped as an older kitten and named after Johnny Cash (because of his sleek black hair). He was relocated to our cat shelter when he was about six months old and once he settled in he won fans among the volunteers for his ability to dance on his hind legs for treats and attention. Unfortunately for him he retained his scaredy cat ways and since he was black he was for ever passed over by potential adopters because he didn't have all the right social skills to make new friends. He's a handsome but reserved cat gentleman and would be eternally grateful for the opportunity to share your quiet life -especially if Felix could come along too.

Cash has had his full geriatric work up and dental cleaning and is ready to go.

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.
