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.



















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
    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."

    Pumpkin
    Pumpkin


    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!"

  • 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.








  • 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?

  • Wilbur
    Wilbur
    **ADOPTED**

    Wilbur’s Profile:

  • Senior (approx. 12 years +)
  • Neutered male
  • Has tested negative for FIV/FELV
  • Can live with other cats
  • Has been exposed to dogs
  • Not suitable for a home with small children

    About Wilbur

    Meet Wilbur, aka Willie, a loveable big black senior kitty who needs a retirement home.

    Wilbur came into our care during the summer of 2019 because his owner, who was elderly, suddenly died.

    Wilbur was sad and lonely after his mom died; her relatives were feeding him, but he was left at her old apartment most of the time by himself.

    Heavenly Creatures arranged for a loving foster home to take Wilbur in and for him to have a lot of dental extractions done that he desperately needed; he now doesn’t really have any teeth left!

    All his vet work has been done, so all he needs is a home in which he can spend his golden years.

    Can you give this sweet boy a home in which to spend the rest of his days?

    Wilbur’s Foster Mom Says :

    “Wilbur (aka Willie) is a beautiful feline.

    At first he is a little timid, and will hide away, but with a little love he will warm up to you, come out of his shell and want to be around you.

    He loves kisses, head butts, and snuggles, and will curl up with you…he loves to be scratched, enjoys belly rubs and loves playing with toys.  Willie enjoys alone time and would do best in a quiet atmosphere.  He is a bit of a Romeo and will steal your heart! He truly is a beautiful cat, tender and a gentle giant who just wants to be loved and will give plenty of love back…..he is such a joy.”

  • 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.”

    Interested In Adopting Godiva?

    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).

    Godiva’s adoption fee is $100 and HC’s Cat Adoption Application can be found here:
