"The question is not
'Can they reason?',
nor 'Can they talk?',
but rather, 'Can they suffer?'"

Jeremy Bentham, English Philosopher


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.

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?

    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."

    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!"

    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.

  • Whiskerz

    Whiskerz’ Profile

  • Neutered male
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Approx. 3 years
  • Good with other animals

    About Whiskerz

    This sweet boy came to us in June of 2019 from Paradise Animal Control after finding himself homeless through no fault of his own.

    You see, poor Whiskerz was abandoned in a home with seven other cats and kittens. We named him Whiskerz; we don’t know his original name and the age listed above is an estimation from the vet who saw him.

    The next thing the poor soul knew, he was sitting in a cage at a pound, as he had nowhere else to go.

    The pound was filling up and he would have been euthanized for space - we couldn’t let that happen. No healthy or treatable animal should lose their life and it would be even worse had he been euthanized after having survived that ordeal.

    So HC got him out of the pound, took him to a vet and then placed him in a foster home. He remains there, waiting for an adoptive family to come along and show him what a true home is.

    Whiskerz’ Foster Mom Says:

    ”He is a little shy at first, but he is so friendly and loves to cuddle!

    He loves treats and playing with other cats and puppies!

    I have already fallen in love with him, I hope he finds an amazing home.”

  • Spock

    Spock’s Profile

  • Neutered male
  • Approx. 2-4 years
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Should be fine for a home that includes another cat (s). His foster home includes another cat with whom he gets on well.
  • Cuddly
  • Likes to go out on his harness

    About Spock

    This handsome tuxedo man came to us in May of 2019 from a pound; he had been a stray for at least several months and was not claimed from the pound by whoever owned him.

    Their loss is going to be someone else’s gain as this tuxedo treasure has a truly terrific purrsonality :)

    As Spock was a stray, we don’t know his exact age, but he is definitely NOT a senior - he’s likely just a few years of age.

    He has lots of energy and when he isn’t running about he loves to cuddle.

    Spock’s foster mom says:

    ”Spock is super friendly. He’s a cuddle bug,

    I’m loving my time with him. He’s going to be a lovely companion for a very lucky person.

    He loves belly rubs so much! He’s a perfect lap cat!”

  • Panther

    Panther’s Profile

  • Approx. 2-4 years
  • FIV positive
  • Neutered male
  • Gentle and affectionate
  • Chatty

    About Panther

    Panther is a handsome fella who came to us from our friends at the city of St. John’s Humane Services division in January of 2019.

    A kind woman had been feeding him for months but was unable to bring him inside and was terribly worried about him being out in the cold.

    So she brought Panther to Humane Services but he didn’t do well there - he was too scared in his cage and wasn’t showing his best self.

    All involved agreed a foster home would be a better fit, so HCagreed to take him.

    As suspected, Panther has blossomed in a foster home environment and is now looking for an adoptive family to cherish his sweet self.

    Panther has tested positive for FIV, but he is asymptomatic - many FIV + cats are carriers of the disease but never actually become sick from it. A great deal of them live to old age just like non-positive cats

    FIV is cat–specific.; it is not transferrable to humans, dogs or any other species. In fact, positive cats and non-positive cats can even live together provided they get along (FIV is primarily spread through deep tissue wounds from fighting).

    Panther need someone to look past his FIV status and into his eyes. His eyes say that he’s looking for a loving home that won’t let him down - he doesn’t want to be a street cat ever again.

    Panther’s Foster Mom Says

    ”Since I’ve started fostering Panther he’s really opened up and has shown himself to be a friendly, loving boy.

    He has never bitten or scratched anyone, and accepts all the attention he can get.

    He loves to curl up next to us on the couch and will talk back if you start a conversation with him! All he really wants is to be a companion.

    We have never seen him around other animals so we do not know how he would do, but he seems to like to be the centre of attention!”

    She doesn’t like to be picked up but will cuddle with you in bed every night.

    She would make a great addition to any family!”

  • Evie

    Evie's profile:

  • Spayed female
  • Tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Approx. 1.5-3 years
  • Very affectionate - even loves belly rubs!
  • Chatty
  • Not suitable for a home with dogs
  • Good with some other cats

    About Evie

    Evie came to us from a pound in the summer of 2018. She had been picked up as a stray and not claimed by whoever owned her.

    It's hard to imagine that anyone wouldn't claim this tiny tabby treasure - she is quite the darling!

    Since coming into our care, Evie has been spayed and now all she needs is a family to call her own!

    Could this petite princess find room in your heart and home?

    Evie's Foster Parents Say:

    " Evie is a very affectionate cat. She loves attention and loves belly rubs.

    She likes to follow us to whatever room we are in. She has adapted to our home very quickly and was even comfortable with us the very first night.

    She can be very vocal to get what she wants, whether it’s food or a nice head scratch.

    It has been amazing fostering her so far and we know she will make an amazing addition in her forever home!"

    Shiloh’s Profile:

  • Neutered male
  • FIV and FELV negative
  • Approx. 2-3 years
  • Cuddly
  • Energetic
  • Not suitable for a home with small children
  • Comes with a cat tree that was purchased for him this summer

    About Shiloh

    Meet Shiloh, a sweet all-white short-haired boy who is up for adoption.

    Shiloh came to us from a pound in April of 2018; he was brought in as a stray and not claimed by whoever owned him.

    Their loss is going to be another’s gain as he is one of the nicest-tempered cats you will meet.

    We don’t know how he is with other animals as there aren’t any in his foster home, but we think he could be fine given a little time to adjust (if placed with another cat, the cat would likely also have to be playful as otherwise Shiloh’s energy may be too much for them)..

    The vet clinic who neutered him and his foster parents can’t get over how cuddly he is. If you are looking for an extra affectionate cat, look no further!

    Shiloh’s Foster Mom Says:

    ”Shiloh is an incredibly affectionate cat who will frequently climb into your lap, nuzzling you as you are serenaded by his purring.

    However, Shiloh is very high energy and needs to be played with a lot, otherwise he tends to bite when bored. When he gets like this, a little spray of water sets him back on the right track!

    He loves to eat and will play endlessly with his laser pointer and will chase balls if you throw them. And if he wants something such as food or affection, he's not afraid to let you know!

    He's great company and lovely to have around, and would likely do well in a home with lots of space to play.”
