Miss Calico, Princess, and Sylvester were all found living under a boiler within a construction site. Clear mom thought it was a good place to hide her kittens, not knowing the dangers that could occur. Thankfully we were able to trap these kittens just in time and capture mom too. Momcat was a wild girl, so she was speyed and stayed nearby to help with the rodent population.

Thankfully the kittens came into our care at just the right age to be soicalsied. Although still a bit shy around new people, they have come along way, and enjoy human company now. Their new family will need to continue socialising them and ensure they feel safe, and happy before going out into the big world.

Miss Calico (Calico) is a sassy wee girl, but we know she has a sweet side too. Happy to be held or sit on your lap once comfortable.

Princess (Brown tabby with Ginger) is the bravest of the group, very adventurous, and loves to explore. She is also very sweet and getting better at being held.

Sylvester (Black and White) will just melt your heart, he is the most gentle boy. He needs time to trust, and know you are safe. But once bonded with you, he will stay by your side.

Please visit our info page under the adoption tab to learn about adopting from us.

Before setting up meet and greets, We ask for any potential adopters to fill out our questionnaire below

As with all of our adoptable cats, he is looking for home that can commit to keeping him inside at night. Any young kittens need to remain indoor only until at least 6 months of age and cats over 6 months old for at least 4 weeks before going outside.

George and Shirley came into our care after they were found living by a Four Square. Momcat was around too, so very likely that the whole family was abandoned. Mom got speyed and stayed at the shop to be a mouser (she wasn't very friendly). Thankfully the kittens came into our care at just the right age to be soicalsied. Although still a bit shy around new people, they have come along way, and really enjoy human company now. They can be adopted together or separately

George is the first one to greet you when it is food time, he is quite talkative and very food motivated. Such a sweet and lovely guy, purrs a lot and likes being held.

Shirley is quite a little girl, loves to have her back rubbed, and will happily put her tail up and purr. Loves sitting on your lap too.
