Bones

How do you use this thing?

Bones is a special kitty looking for someone to appreciate his unique style! Bones has a mild neurological condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia – most commonly know as “Wobbly Cat Syndrome”. Despite his lack of balance and tendency to run in circles, Bones has no issues running, jumping, or playing. He gets tired quickly so he’ll need to crawl into your lap for a minute before he’s back in action! Bones is very affectionate and high energy. He’s looking for a home with cats his own age or someone to keep him company throughout the day. CH cats bring a rare and special energy to any household. Please consider this special boy for your loving home!

Cerebellar hypoplasia is a disease that denotes an inadequate development of the cerebellum, a section of the brainstem largely responsible for modulating motor impulses. Affected dogs and cats therefore fail to move normally, especially when it comes to maintaining normal balance, posture, and coordination.

Some pets are functional and make acceptable pets. The deficits are generally permanent but non-progressive. Some symptoms may appear to improve as the pet adapts to their abilities. Their life span is normal.

I’m a lovely cat who was rescued by the ASPCA. I’m relaxed and affectionate, I love to play and hang out with the other cats, or even dogs. I like to look out the windows or curl up in my favourite chair by the fire.My foster mom says I’ve got excellent manners. I never bother the houseplants, or furniture, I’m quiet, only using my voice when my dish is empty! I would be great in a big family with lots of other animals or even just by myself too!

Cherry

My name is Cherry and I came from a small hoarding house with an elderly man who really liked cats. I came in with my sister and we each had a litter of kittens a few days apart but since we were such good mommas and best friends we co-nursed all the kittens together. We came into WHARF and our kittens were old enough we got to go into foster care. My foster home adores me, I am the perfect cat and I love being in a busy house. I have little kids, cats, dogs and guinea pigs to play with all day. I am playful, love to be pet and love to sit on the back of the couch looking out the window. I am a very good girl and I don’t wreck anything and I am very respectful of the furniture in the house. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Come and meet me!

Clove

Come visit me at the WHARF adoption office!
Clove is my name and I came into care with my brother, who has already been adopted, from an abandoned farm where we were living in a woodpile. Someone came and rescued us and brought us to Wharf. I think we were alone for a very long time because we were so emaciated that we could not even run away from the man who came to get us. We just laid there cold and hungry. WHARF immediately put us in good hands where they made sure we had access to tons of food and water all the time. We couldn’t regulate our own body temperature from being so skinny to so we lived on heat pads for a few weeks. Now I am plump, healthy, my coat is so shiny and soft and I have energy to play! I love my life so much right now but I hear there is something better than this. A forever home. I am hoping to get this one day soon. I love other animals and they help me not be so scared. I have learned a lot from them and I hope to not be the only cat in the house as I have alway had a friend by my side. I am neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed.

Harp

I’m a lovely cat with a soft harp-like “meow”. As soon as you pick me up, I start to purr. I’m a big cuddler and I like to sleep on your lap. I will even give you hugs and kisses. I’m really patient and will quietly wait for you to wake up in the morning and play with me. I like to chase bouncy balls. I also know a trick or two. I can fetch, sit for treats, and play hide and seek. I get along with new people; little and not so little. I’m also really good at community crime watch! I sit on the window sill and keep an eye out for hares and birds

If you have a warm home, a warm heart, and time to make me an active part of your life and family, I’ll be your buddy forever

Jack

Hello there! My name is Jack, short for One Eyed Jack because, you guessed it… I only have one eye! ???? Don’t let that freak you out though I am well adjusted and forget what it’s even like to have two. I am a gentle old soul and am very well socialized with humans after having countless cat sitters when my former snowbird parents went away. I love to check in with you when you get home and chat about the big adventures you face out there in the world. Other than that though, I’m I real chill guy – I enjoy “meditating”, looking out the window and contemplating life, sleeping in one of my signature spots or sitting next to you and quietly purring. Every now and then I dip into the nip and might play with a toy after that but my depth perception is a bit off so I get discouraged from games quite easily. I’m no spring kitten! Speaking of kittens, I don’t really get along with them or any other felines so I’m best suited for a single cat home. I am very affectionate, a good listener and an excellent cuddler making me the perfect fur friend for the end of a long day.

Kiko

 

My name is Kiko, and I’m a 3yr old orange-and-cream tabby cat with beautiful, big, golden eyes and a nice, long, lush coat. I’m a quiet, gentle, sweet, lovely gal, and can be a bit shy at times. I do like to watch and observe what everyone is up to, though, and be in the same room as you, lounging on a blanket, couch, chair, or warm surface. If a bed is left unmade, I like to sneak into or onto the blankets and just poke my head out. I love playing with my toys, and will run, or roll around, playing with them for quite a while independently. Although I have many toys, sometimes my favourite one is the large, brown paper bag my foster mom leaves out for me to play in, hide in, and chew for fun, or something hanging for me to bat and chew.

I’m still getting used to being outside the shelter, and sometimes sneak away at loud noises or people approaching me, but everyday I adapt a tiny bit more. While I currently don’t like being held too much, and won’t sit directly on your lap all the time, I’ll let you pet me (if you don’t startle me), I like positive attention, often like being in the same room with you, and will meow back and respond to you if you talk to me. I would do really well with an owner who understands all of these things, gives me time to gradually adapt and become less timid, does not have an overly-chaotic household, and who is patient, kind, understanding, and gentle with me. If you think you’d like the company of a quiet, sweet, mild-mannered cat, come and meet me at my foster home downtown today!

I am in foster care with cats dogs small animals and kids. I don’t mind them at all, but will also do great as a single cat too. I love getting pets but especially belly pets. My foster mom sees the bottom of my paws more that anything because all I do is roll onto my back whenever I see an opportunity at getting a belly rub. That also means I roll off of a lot of things like the couch, the tables, the bed, the cat tree but that just makes everyone laugh. I have a very calm personality but will play for a bit if you are up for it. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed.

Ray

I’m a girl!

My name is Ray and I have been in care for a few months, I came from a hoarding house and there was too many cats for owner to socialize all of us properly so when I was rescued I was very scared and didn’t know that humans were okay. After hiding out in my foster home for a while I decided to see what all the other cats were doing and why they hung out upstairs with people all the time. After some observing I decided to give my foster home a chance and wow being pet and snuggled is great! I started purring instantly which I am not sure if I have ever done that before and they play with us too which is also super fun. I am sad that I missed out on so much of my kitten and teenage stages being scared in house with too many animals but now that I know not all people are bad I am trying to catch up on missed times. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. I might act scared of you when you come meet me but just be patient and trust me we will be best friends

Ritter

I came to WHARF from the SPCA so my story is a mystery. What’s certain is I was pretty skinny and had mats so I must have been living a pretty rough life on the streets. The first two days of moving to my foster home my foster mom patiently cut out the mats which at first was uncomfortable, but boy does that do a lot for one’s self esteem! I’m even pretty patient with the regular combings and glad my hair is growing back to make me the handsome boy I was meant to be. Mom says I’m handsome and have the loveliest velvety fur coat, so I’m spending more time with my grooming to make her proud. I am not finicky and really enjoy the regular meals and treats – although I may have to cut back soon. I am a big laid back kind of dude and like being close to my foster mom and getting pets and cheek rubs. I am well behaved and am quickly learning the rules around here – like not climbing on the kitchen counters. I get along with my roommate Taffy (except when she pushed me to my limits) and am fascinated watching her chase balls around, sometimes I even join in! It’s quiet here and nice to have all the attention on us so I think that’s what I would prefer. I sure would like to find a forever home where I can chill with my people. I do get along with other cats – not sure what dogs are but I’m told they have four legs. I like to play and chase balls or grab feathers but over all I’m pretty chill. I sure hope I find a forever home soon! Ask about me today. I am ready for you, neutered, de-wormed and vaccinated.

While my foster mom is at work, I spend my time watching the birds and squirrels in the yard, climbing things, and hanging out with my sister Storm. I would really like to go with her to a new home.

Taffy

Boy this is a change! I am a very petite girl and I was terribly scared and timid. I came from a hoarding house and was a teenage mom. At WHARF I hid as best I could and preferred to stay in my carrier the first two days at my foster home. Eventually I learned this place was very different and there was nothing to harm me here. I was fidgety with the grooming at first but I am getting used to it. Ritter, my roommate is a big guy and he intimidated me at first, but I have come out of my shell and have him wrapped around my little paw – as long as I don’t pester him too much. I am catching up on play, big time, and loving chasing balls around and skidding around on the tile floor. I love the toys I have to play with. I can’t believe life can be like this – it’s a second kittenhood. Initially I refused to be picked up, and I am still often fidgety but I’m getting used to it and even like to crawl on mom’s lap in the evenings. Mom gave me time to get used to these new digs and mostly let me choose when I wished to be near her. I’m learning how pleasurable it is to be held and cuddled but I’m still a bit nervous at times. I was spayed after being moved to foster care and I am so glad to finally have that awful cone off! I would love to find a forever home where I can feel safe and secure and continue to adjust to the good life. I’m still very nervous around strange people so a quiet home with no children would be my first choice. I’m used to other cats and would make a good friend for your feline companion. My foster mom has nick named me Missy ‘cuz I’m a fiesty, curious little girl with lots of spunk and very good toilet manners. I’m ready for adoption, spayed, vaccinated and de-wormed.

I love to snuggle and am in a foster home with kids cats and dogs whom I tolerate but am very vocal about the fact that I really think I should be living alone. I can live with other animals and little people but I’m definitely not shy about voicing my opinions. I am a prince, I’m sure my great, great grand cat came from Egypt.

I’ve been in care for a whole year! I am patiently waiting for my forever home!

I am Twix, and I am a sweet cat who came into WHARF foster care in October with my almost identical sister Twizzler, another kitten Tootsie, and three mama cats. We spent the first few months of our lives without any human contact and we had neighbors who were not very nice to us, so I am still quite apprehensive around people. I can be held and pet, but you will have to work a little bit to get me to agree to do this. I do love to play with other cats and kittens, but don’t like any sudden movements. I would prefer a quiet home with people who are patient and will allow me to take the time I need to adjust. If possible, it would be great if I could find a home with my sister Twizzler as we have spent our entire lives together and she is my best friend. I am spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and tattooed.

I’ve been in care for a whole year! I am patiently waiting for my forever home.

My name is Twizzler, and just like my wonderful sister Twix, I came into WHARF foster care in October 2017 with another kitten and three mama cats. For the few months of my life I didn’t have much human contact, other than some neighbours who were not very nice and threw things at me and chased me away. I do enjoy playing with the other foster cats I live with, but it takes quite of bit of nerve for me to warm up to humans. I do like pets from my foster mom and will sleep on the bed with her but everything is on my terms. If you are patient, give me lots of attention and avoid sudden movements, I will most definitly overcome my shyness and warm up to you. My other sister Tootise, Twix and I were named at Halloween when my mom was handing out candy – maybe that’s why we are all so sweet!  I am very bonded with my sister Twix and would love to be adopted with her if you are interested in twins.
