CATS IN NEED OF LOVING HOMES

All of Heavenly Creatures' animals are placed in foster care, not housed in a traditional shelter. All viewings and adoptions are therefore by appointment only (weekday evenings and weekends available).

The animals displayed on our site are a sampling of the majority of those in our care, however some are not yet posted. For a complete list or to arrange a viewing appointment, call 739-0077.








Smokey
Smokey


Smokey’s Profile:

  • Male kitten.
  • Between 8 and 9 weeks of age.
  • Suitable for a home with other pets
  • Suitable for a home with children
  • Has been vet examined and has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Smokey will need to be neutered in four months when he is between 6-7 months of age; expect to pay $300-$350 at a vet clinic for this procedure.

    About Smokey

    Meet Smokey, a sweet and sensitive Cancerian kitten who came to us last month after he was found living outside under a shed or house.

    It wasn’t hard to tell that this little survivor was a feral kitten who was born outside - he was afraid of people when he first came to us, but as he was young, that didn’t last long.

    He has since been in a foster home for a couple of weeks and has learned how great it is to have the attention of humans (“They feed you! They play with you!”).

    This little charmer - who could win the heart of just about anyone - is now all ready for his adoptive home.

    Will you be the lucky person or family who will get to treasure this moon-ruled baby for the end of his days? We know this cutie won’t be with us for long before he is snapped up!

    Smokey’s Foster Mom says:

    “I call him Squeaks (cuz he squeaks) or LittleOne/Little mostly, and would you just look at that nose!

    This beautiful boy will curl up with you for a nap but when he’s awake, and curious, it’s full steam ahead with your typical kitten adventures.

    He’s a good boy, clean, and loves to play with my nephew, who is 5 and me.

    Whoever takes this sweet boy home is surely getting a special kitty, he’s just purrfect!!”

  • Godiva
    Godiva


    Godiva’s Profile:

  • Spayed female
  • Approx. 2-4 years
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Petite
  • Not suitable for a home with children
  • Her ideal home would have no other pets

    About Godiva

    Godiva is a petite female tortoishelle who came into Heavenly Creatures’ care at the end of May 2019; she was a stray who had been taken in by some kind people and not claimed by whoever had owned her.

    Since coming into HC’s care, Godiva has been spayed and has tested negative for FIV and FELV.

    She would be best suited for parents who have an understanding of feline behaviour.

    She is skittish of people at first, always keeping a close eye on your hands, which leads her foster parents to believe she was abused in the past.

    However, once she is comfortable with the individuals she is like any other loving cat.

    Godiva’s not a fan of other cats, and loud noises and sudden movements scare her, so small kids are also out.

    Her ideal home would be a quiet one in which she could be the only pet and would be doted on by her human.

    Could this petite princess be the queen of your heart and home?

    Godiva’s Foster Parents say:

    “This sweet girl could be your new guard kitty!

    Whenever she hears a noise at the door she runs up to it and growls, until she sees it is her caretakers, then she gets all lovey dovey.

    She’ll make her way onto your lap for pets, following you around for attention, and playing with toys, especially laser pointers.”

    If you are interested in giving this tortie treasure a home, please leave us a message at 739-0077, or e-mail us: info@heavenlycreatures.ca (please don’t forget to include your phone number).

  • Jack and Kallie
    Jack and Kallie


    About Jack and Kallie

  • Both cats are FIV positive
  • Jack is neutered and approx four years; Kallie is spayed and approx. seven years
  • Jack is on the shy side; Kallie is more outgoing and chatty!
  • They love each other and want to stay together!

    About Jack and Kallie

    Meet Jack and Kallie, a purrfect pair of FIV positive kitties who we are trying to keep together.

    These two kitties are just like a human married couple! They do everything together and she is the boss of him 😀

    First, a few words about FIV. If you weren’t told they are FIV positive, you would never be able to tell that they have it, as they have been asymptomatic since being with us.

    Many cats who test positive for FIV are just carriers of it and never actually wind up becoming sick from it (We can’t guarantee that they will always be asymptomatic, of course, but we strongly suspect that they have many years ahead of snuggling ahead of them).

    FIV is not transferable to dogs or people and is not even that contagious to other cats.

    FIV positive cats can live with non-positive cats as long as the cats co-exist peacefully - if the cats in question are fixed, it can only spread through deep tissue wounds from fighting which is not a worry if everyone is getting along.

    Now, here’s some info about this purrfect pair:

    Jack and Kallie both had rough lives before being rescued and they deserve to find a happy ending.

    Jack came to us this past Boxing Day after having his paw caught in a mink trap and Kallie had spent years on the street having litter after litter of kittens (when she came to us, she was full of fleas and worms and had terrible teeth, but all that has since been taken care of by).

    We just happened to put them together in a foster home where we found they quickly bonded ❤️

    Jack (the tabby and white) is approximately four while Kallie (the calico) is approximately seven. Both cats have been spayed/neutered since coming into our care.

    Jack and Kallie’s Foster Mom Says

    ”Don't let Kallie's petite size and kitten face fool you, she's got a big calico personality!

    Despite being half the size of Jack, she is definitely the boss of the pair. She likes to tackle toy mice and can be quite chatty when she wants to be.

    Jack is much more reserved - he gets easily startled by unfamiliar things so he needs quiet and patience.

    However, this former "Mr. Hissypants" has blossomed into a big goofy sweetie over time.

    He loves soft blankets, being hand-fed treats and poking at Kallie's tail.

    While neither are lap cats, they will both seek out head scratches and bedtime cuddles. Kallie enjoys having Jack as company and he looks to her for confidence, so we hope they will get the chance to stay together.”

    Please note that Jack and Kallie are not suitable for a home with hyper dogs or small children (given how easily Jack startles), but need a quiet home where they can relax and be happy for the rest of their days.

    Does your heart and home have room for these two bonded beauties?

    Interested In Adopting Jack and Kallie?

    Koda


    Koda’s Profile:

  • Four years of age
  • Neutered male
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • May be suitable for a home with other animals

    About Koda

    This charming grey and white boy came to us recently (June of 2020) because his owner died 😿

    Koda is an energetic and very friendly kitty who is looking for a new home that will cherish him to the end of his days.

    We don’t know how he is with other animals - he is the only one in his foster home - but he may be just fine, particularly if the other cat or dog matched his energy level.

    His current foster parents have to move at the end of this month (August) and they can’t take him with them.

    We’d like to find him an adoptive home before they leave, so that he doesn’t have to be placed in another foster home and then have to go through yet another change when he is adopted.

    Could you be the one to give this sweet boy a place in your heart and home?

    Koda’s Foster Mom says

    ”Koda is a wonderful cat, very playful and energetic - he loves to chase and jump.

    He's very social and friendly, and while he's not much of a snuggler, he always wants to be nearby.

    For all his energy, he's very well behaved, and all in all a super sweet cat.”

  • Willow
    Willow
    **ADOPTED**

    Willow’s Profile:

  • Neutered male
  • Nine years
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Super sweet cat who loves to be brushed
  • Chatty
  • A little shy around other cats, but is in foster care with another cat -

    About Willow

    This sweet senior came into HC’s care in June of 2020 because his family could no longer care for him; he was at a vet clinic to be euthanized and the clinic called to ask us if we wanted to take him instead.

    He’s not an older senior; he’s only nine and could have half of his life ahead of him yet! We couldn’t see this poor fella prematurely euthanized, so we got him the medical care be needed and arranged a foster home for him.

    At the time, Willow had an abscessed paw and bladder inflammation that was causing accidents, but that has all since been resolved (He can’t have regular dry food because of the bladder inflammation - he must eat only wet food or the special dry from the vet).

    His paw is looking good now and he has had no pee accidents in his foster home 😀

    This big boy is a true sweetheart. He is laid back and loves to hang out with people. Could you be the one to welcome him into your heart/home and provide him with the loving retirement home he needs?

    Willow’s Foster Mom says:

    Willow is a super sweet, gentle, cuddly boy who loves to talk and get brushed,

    He’s a bit of an old fart and likes lazing around watching tv with you.”

    Interested In Adopting Willow?

    If you think you can offer wonderful Willow a good home, please leave us a message at 739-0077, or e-mail your phone number to info@heavenlycreatures.ca
















  • CJ
    CJ


    CJ’s Profile:

  • Neutered male.
  • Chatty, cuddly and loves to give kisses.
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV.
  • Estimated to be a young cat (not sure of his exact age, however, as he was a stray).
  • Can go to a home with other cats as long as the introductions are done slowly and properly (he is in foster care with other cats).
  • We have no idea how he is with dogs or children, but he might be just fine.

    About CJ

    This handsome dilute orange boy with the white mittens is CJ. He came to us recently (summer of 2020) from a pound because whoever owned him hadn’t claimed him; their loss is someone else’s gain as he is a truly lovely boy.

    Since coming into our care, CJ has been neutered, tested and so on - now all he needs is a loving adoptive home!

    This gorgeous guy has a winning purrsonality and we know some person or family is going to feel blessed to have him.

    CJ’s Foster Parents Say:

    “CJ is doing well and is so easygoing. I pick him up and give him kisses all the time. He was a little weirded out in the beginning, but now he purrs when I do it.

    I find he is either playing or sleeping so it is hard to get a good picture of him while he is awake!

    He’s super cuddly and affectionate.”

    Interested In Adopting CJ?

  • Angus and Porter's Profile:

  • Neutered males
  • Born in spring of 2013
  •  Shy - needs an understanding, patient home or homes
  • Get along well with other cats
  • Needs feline company - they either need to go to a home together, or to homes that have other cats for company for them.
  • About Angus and Porter:

    Angus (and his brother Porter) came to us from a pound as older kittens just before Christmas. They were strays who had been living on the streets, and it was obvious they had been born outside - they were terrified of people.

    They've been in foster care since, and their foster parents have been working on socializing them.

    Progress has been made, but Angus is still very much on the timid side. Their new foster or adoptive home (s) need to be willing to work on continuing the socialization process.

    Angus and Porter's Foster Family Says:


    "They're much better around new people now. We were recently away, and the friend who came the most often even got to the point where he could pet Porter every time he came.

    We think they are as ready to be adopted as they will ever be. Angus loves to play and follows us around everywhere but just isn't interested in being touched. This may change eventually with the right family.

    We think that if they were able to go to a home or homes where there is possibly a mature cat that does not mind other cats, it would help to integrate them better.

    Unfortunately our cats are not very friendly in a helping sense and I don't think they would be very comfortable mingling about together and rather scared instead. Additionally a home where they would be the only cats would be good also, but they will definitely be scared at first for a while."

    Interested in fostering or adopting one or both of the boys?

    Alf
    Alf


    Alf’s Profile:

  • Neutered male
  • FIV positive
  • Approx. two-four years
  • Very affectionate!

    About Alf

    This handsome orange tiger came into our care in late July from a pound after he wasn’t claimed by whoever owned him.

    At the time, he was unneutered, and scruffy with a bad eye; it was clear that he hadn’t had a proper home in some time.

    No one picked him up from the pound and he would have been euthanized for lack of a place to go had HC not gotten involved.

    We couldn’t let this sweet boy lose his life prematurely for want of some TLC, medical care and a place to go, so we found him a loving foster home who has been dedicated to him.

    Alf’s bad eye was being caused by a condition called Entropian, but that has been dealt with surgically and he shouldn’t have any more issues in future.

    Alf is now ready for his Furever Home - could this orange tiger be the one to steal your home?

    Alf’s Foster Mom says:

    “Alf (I call him Alfie or Mr. Alf) is by far the sweetest, most loving boy I have ever owned. He is between 2-4 years old, and he’s FIV +, but is currently as healthy as a horse!

    If you’re looking for a cat that loves to cuddle, follows you around the house, needs constant attention, and gives kisses, Alf is your man!

    He’s the definition of a lap cat. He loves spending the day in your lap, purring and drooling, while you scratch his head and talk about your day. He loves his foster mommy.

    Some quirks about Alf are that he drools when he’s happy (which is all of the time) so keep tissues on hand, he grunts when he’s hungry or wants your attention and he loves his treats

    I feel Alf would do best in a house as the only cat, or with other lazy cats. He gets along great with my cat, Tom, because they both love to sleep, but my other cat, Jerry, is high energy, and they don’t get along.

    Alf is also a little sensitive to sounds and smells, so for this reason, I feel he would do best in a house without children. He has not been around dogs, so I’m not sure how that would go.

    Alf is a very special boy. He has been through so much, in such a short period of time, and wants to spend the rest of his days relaxing indoors.

    He takes a little time to adjust to changes and new people, as he’s still a little timid, but if you’re willing to take your time with him, and give him all of the love and attention he deserves, I promise he will repay you with so much love!

    Interested In Adopting Alf?

    If you think you can give our sweet boy a good home, please leave us a message at 739-0077, or e-mail an adoption application to info@heavenlycreatures.com.

  • Posted Oct. 15th, 2013

    Peewee's Profile:

  • Male kitten
  • Dewormed
  • Littertrained
  • Would do well in a home with another cat

    Peewee's foster mom says:

    "Peewee. is doing great! What a change from the terrified little kitten I got a few weeks ago - he is now brave and noisy, demanding what he wants (food and attention).

    Peewee constantly craves attention. I think he would do well with other cats (but mine don't like him, so he's still kept separate).

    He's probably not best suited for a home with small children, but that's because he's a playful kitten so he likes hugging with claws. They would need to be careful around him, especially for the next few months, but after that it would probably fine.

    He's not a fan of being picked up, and will wriggle until you let him go, but I can pick him up (so can catch him if necessary). I don't know how he will be with other people (all of my friends who usually come over are out of town), but I would think it will take a week or so for him to adjust, maybe less.

    He's never bitten me, and the claws are playful (he doesn't swipe at me, and hasn't hissed in over a week). He's not a fan of being picked up, and will wriggle until you let him go, but I can pick him up (so can catch him if necessary). I don't know how he will be with other people (all of my friends who usually come over are out of town), but I would think it will take a week or so for him to adjust, maybe less. You or Vivien (or whoever) are welcome to come see him and see how he is with you.












  • Pumpkin
    Pumpkin
    **ADOPTION PENDING**

    Pumpkin's Profile:

  • Spayed female
  • Born in late 2009
  • Very affectionate
  • Not a match for a home with small kids, or rambunctious dogs

    About Pumpkin

    This cherub-faced beauty is very loving; she loves to cuddle and always appreciates being rubbed down.

    However, she is on the timid side with strangers and noisy situations, so needs a home that isn't too noisy/active.

    She is a calico, and is a typical one - like a lot of calicos and Torties, she would do best in a home that has no small kids, and either no other pets, or perhaps just one cat.

    She's a little chubby; she's not very active but does enjoy the occasional game with the laser pointer.

    She is an indoor cat and always had been.

    One of her favorite past times is looking out the window at the birds.

    Can this sweet bird watcher hang out on your window ledge?

    Pumpkin's Foster Mom Says:

    "She is doing great! Such a sweet kitty; she is very gentle.

    She loves belly rubs, and snuggling on the couch. She has met my mom and rolls over for a belly rub when she sees her!

    I have not had her around children or a dog but I think she could do well with both as long as they gave her space.

    Her favourite thing to do is hang out on the couch and look out the window at the birds!

    She is timid at times, but is also a pretty mellow kitty who just needs a calm household, and some company in between her many naps!"

    Callie
    Callie


    Callie's Profile:

    • Spayed female
    • Exact age unknown but she is estimated to be at least several years of age
    • Has lived with other cats
    • FIV/Feleuk negative
    • Not confident enough for a home with a young child
    About Callie

    Callie came to us late last year from a pound and before that had just come from an unfortunate situation where she had been living with 20 + other cats and kittens.

    We believe that she had multiple litters of kittens before coming into our care and being spayed, but she is fixed now and her mommy days are over!

    With so many other cats in the home and so many kittens, Callie never got enough time/attention for herself.

    She is in foster care with a single person and she is the only pet - she is eating up all the love!

    Callie's Foster Mom says:

    "Since Callie came to stay she has stolen my heart.

    She came from unfortunate beginnings but over time she has gained in trust and now cuddles and purrs constantly.

    As with most cats, it is on her terms, though; she likes to lay in my lap and loves attention, but while she tolerates being picked up it's not what she wants.

    She's curious, but never destructive. I have an apartment filled with plants that are intact, and got through Xmas (with a tree) without incident.

    I can't say for sure how she would be with another cat, but her temperament is certainly passive. If paired with a laid back cat, she would probably enjoy the company."
