"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?

    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.

  • Nancy

    Nancy’s Profile:

  • Spayed female
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Approx. 18 months
  • Cuddly
  • Might be okay for a home with another cat
  • We have no idea how she is with other dogs, but she could be fine.

    About Nancy

    This long-haired beauty came to us as an unclaimed stray from a pound in the spring just before it shut down owing to Covid.

    She has been great company for her foster momma, but it’s time this perfect princess find a home she can call her own.

    Could Nancy be the one to walk all over your heart with her cute little paws?

    Nancy’s Foster Mom Says:

    “Nancy loves to cuddle, eat flowers, play with dangling strings and sniff anything you're making for supper.

    likes to be in the know with whatever you're doing and isn't shy about giving her opinion with a warbly meow. She's an absolute delight! 

    Nancy came to stay with me at the very beginning of the pandemic and I couldn't have been luckier, she's the perfect companion!

    I do think she would benefit from a home where she can get lots of attention or have another cat to play with.”

  • Smokey

    Smokey’s Profile:

  • Neutered male.
  • Approx. 3-5 years.
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV.
  • Might be suitable for a home with other cats.
  • On the shy side - not suitable for a home with small kids or hyper dogs.

    About Smokey

    This gorgeous boy came to us as an unneutered stray this fall (2020) from outside of St. John’s (A kind family had been feeding him for months and didn’t want to see him spend another winter on the street)..

    Smokey was VERY scared when he first came into our care, but his foster mom has been working with him and he has made great strides.

    This sensitive former street kitty will still need his adoptive home to be a quiet one, however, where he feels comfortable to relax and show his true luvbug colours.

    If you have a quiet home and a couch on which Smokey can hang with you and watch Netflix, he’d love for you to contact us!

    Smokey’s Foster Mom Says:

    “Smokey is a cuddly 3-5 year old brown tabby. He's so incredibly affectionate with a huge purr.

    Though not a lap cat yet, he's always lap-adjacent (he'll insist on curling up on the couch beside you).

    He's still a little shy - but has made amazing progress in just a few weeks. He's already getting comfortable enough to figure out how to play.

    Though Smokey is generally a quiet cat, he can get quite vocal when he wants food or pets.

    He can't handle loud noises or quick movements yet, so a home without energetic dogs, cats or kids would be a good fit.

    Smokey will do wonderfully in a home where he can be the centre of attention when he chooses!”

  • Fanny

    Fanny’s Profile

  • Approx. 1 year
  • Spayed female
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Playful
  • Likely suitable for a home with children
  • Likely suitable for a home with other animals

    About Fanny

    This pretty tabby girl came into our care in August of 2020 from a pound when she was heavily pregnant; she gave birth five days later.

    It is now October and Fanny’s “Royal Family” litter of kittens are all spoken for, but their poor mama isn’t and she is little more than a kitten herself - she deserves a home, too!

    Fanny is a very sweet and playful girl who is approx. a year.

    We have not seen Fanny interact with other animals but she has a relaxed personality and we suspect she would be fine for a home with other animals or children.

    There is a dog in Fanny’s foster home who she has seen through a door and she didn’t seem phased by that (or by hearing him bark).

    Fanny is being spayed on October 14th and we’d like her to go to a home of her own a couple of days afterward.

    Could this sweet momma be the kitty to steal you heart and be welcomed into your home?

    Interested In Adopting Fanny?

    If you are interested in adopting Fanny once she has been spayed next week, please leave us a message at 739-0077, or e-mail info@heavenlycreatures.ca

  • Alf

    Alf’s Profile:

  • Neutered male
  • His adoption fee has been sponsored in honour of someone’s birthday!
  • 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.

  • Willow

    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.”

  • 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.”

    Interested In Adopting Koda?

  • 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?
