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.








  • Axl and Rosie
    Axl and Rosie
    **ADOPTED**

    Axl and Rosie’s Profile:

  • Approx. 1 year or less
  • Siblings who must be placed together
  • Have tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Spayed/neutered
  • Should be fine for a home with other cats of similar energy
  • Sweet and playful

    About Axl and Rosie

    This brother and sister pair came into our care recently (May of 2020) and is looking for a new home together.

    The went to trial adoptive home a couple of weeks ago, but it is not working out, as the older cat in the home is not comfortable with their kittenish energy.

    They should do fine in a home with other cats as long as the other cats are also young enough and playful.

    Their foster mom says:

    ”These little angels are my foster children. I love them to pieces but I can’t keep them and it breaks my heart.

    They’re best friends/siblings and so they must stay together.

    Your life will be full of joy if you adopt these babies forever.”

    Since coming to Heavenly Creatures, they have been examined, spayed/neutered, combo tested for FIV and FELV (they both tested negative) and, given flea and worm meds as a precaution (something we do with all of our cats when they first arrive).

    All they need now is an adoptive home. Could these two beauties be the ones to steal your heart?

    Axl has this to say about them:

    “Meow! My name is Axl and I’m a handsome orange and white boy. I’m a big boy compared to Rosie, my calico sister, who is a little lady.

    Foster mom says we suckle and knead on the fuzzy sheets when we’re tucking her in at night because we’re still little babies. I’m not a baby mom, Rosie is!

    We’re adorable, full of energy and love to play with each other. We love our scratch post, our cardboard box and sponge bouncing balls but especially all the little mice Mom gives us to play with. Who knew mice could fly!

    Mom says, we’re good kitties ‘cause we have no bad habits. We don’t scratch the furniture we have good healthy sleeping and bathroom habits.”

    Interested In Adopting Our Purrfect Pair?

    If you are interested in giving this purrfect pair a good 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).

    Our cat adoption fee for pairs is $100 and owing to Covid, you would not be able to meet them first. If approved to adopt, it would have to be a contactless adoption.












  • Rory and Finnegan
    Rory and Finnegan
    **ADOPTED**

    Finnegan and Rory’s Profile:

  • Bonded pair who must be adopted together
  • Neutered and declawed males
  • Eight years
  • Tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Not suitable for a home with young children
  • Indoor cats

    About Finnegan and Rory

    Rory (the orange tabby) and Finnegan (the tuxedo) are in a loving foster home, but are ready to find their Furever Home together.

    They came into Heavenly Creatures’ care in December of 2019 after their owner died suddenly.

    They are both declawed, neutered and had a vet check in early December.

    They have been through a rough time with their owner dying and then losing the only home they have ever known - their adoptive home will need to be a quiet one as well as very patient and kind while they take the time they need to settle in and warm up.

    Could you be the one to give these shy, but very sweet, boys the loving retirement home they need?

    Rory and Finnegan’s Foster Mom says:

    “They were very shy in the beginning and spent most of their time under my couch during the first week.

    However, I spent a good bit of time in the room with them, so they could adapt to my scent, presence and energy. Slowly, they started coming out of their shell.

    They would come out to eat in my presence after a few days. Then, they started showing interest in a lazer pointer.

    One evening, after a good play session, Rory hopped up on the couch next to me a let me pet him! That was it, he decided he likes the loves, and asks for them regularly.

    Finnegan was a couple days behind Rory in the love and hug department, but is such a cuddly cat now when I’m on the couch with him.

    I’m in awe of Finnegan’s coat! Its so sleek and shiny! And Rory just has the best eyes, when he looks at me, my heart melts!

    They love play fighting with each other and despite being declawed are quite the toy mouse hunters!

    They love treats as well - the ones in the tubes are their favorite!

    They will need to be adopted together as they are bonded and very fond of each other!

    They will be shy initially and will need a quiet, positive energy home, with no dogs or children. Ideally, if there is another cat in the home, he or she would also already be declawed; they might be intimidated by a cat with claws.

    They will need patience and love as it will likely take them a little while to re-adjust to their new home.

    These guys have had a rough few months, they lost their mom/owner in early November, and deserve all the love and patience in the world!”

  • Bruno: Special Boy Needs A Home!
    Bruno: Special Boy Needs A Home!
    **ADOPTED**

    Bruno’s Profile:

  • Neutered male
  • Approx. 2 years
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Playful and loves human company
  • Might be good for a home with children

    About Bruno

    This handsome tabby and white man came to us as a stray before Christmas of 2019.

    We call Bruno our special boy because he has an oddly-shaped front leg which will no doubt cause a lot of people to overlook him. We hope someone will look past what we see as his “Purrfect Imperfection” and into his soulful eyes.

    A kind woman had been feeding him and noticed he was limping. Between that and the weather getting colder, she contacted us out of concern.

    Since coming into our care, Bruno has been neutered, tested for FIV and FELV and has his limp examined.

    It turns out that it is owing to an old elbow injury for which we are told there is no surgical option.

    His elbow will jut out permanently, but it doesn’t slow him down - he gets around just fine and is very active!

    Bruno’s Foster Parents Say:

    “Bruno is young and energetic! He loves to play with his toys and loves to run and jump around!!

    We dont have children, but he got along really well with our 10 year old niece.

    We think he would enjoy kids as he is very playful.

    He is also very sweet, and loves any kind of attention.

    He loves company - he hangs out with us, sleep with us and he sits on our lap if he wants a rub!

    He loves taking sun baths and looking out the window. He is very quiet, and only vocal when asking for food!”

    Interested In Adopting Bruno?

  • Wilbur
    Wilbur


    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.”

  • Molly
    Molly
    **ADOPTED**

    Molly’s Profile:

  • Spayed female
  • Has tested negative for FIV and FELV
  • Approx. 1 year
  • Playful
  • Likes to sleep in the bed with you
  • Is in foster care with other cats but might do be best as an only cat

    About Molly

    Molly came to us in the spring of 2019 from a pound with a litter of kittens in tow; she was also a surrogate mom to two kittens from another litter.

    Now that her child rearing responsibilities are over and she has been spayed, Molly is looking for a home to call her own.

    Too often, kittens are snatched up by adopters and their mothers get overlooked. We hope Molly won’t be waiting too long for her happy ending.

    Molly’s Foster Parents Say

    “Molly is a spunky one year old spayed female who came to us on May 15th with her 3 kittens. Despite being a young cat herself Molly was a fantastic mom. Her tail had been broken prior to coming into foster care and has healed a little crooked.

    Since her kittens have been adopted Molly has revealed her playful side and loves to chase toys around the house.

    She loves to be around people; she follows us around the house, sits on the couch with us and sleeps at the foot of the bed.

    She is a great companion and would likely do best in a home where she can be the only cat.”

  • 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.”
