Amanda

Hi! My name is Amanda! I came to WHARF in July of 2019 from a house with 67 other cats. I spent some time at the shelter; but was eventually taken in by a foster. When I first got to my foster home I was really scared, but my foster dad brought out a comfy cat bed for me and it was the best thing ever. I had never had my OWN bed before – that I didn’t have to share with other cats! Since then I’ve really come out of my shell and have bonded a lot with my foster. I love to greet him when he gets up in the morning by touching my nose to his and getting pet. I would enjoy just chilling out with you and cuddling. In fact, every night after a long eight-hour shift of watching birds out of the window, I like to sleep on my foster dad’s pillow snuggled up to his shoulder.

Although I really like relaxing, I sometimes have a lot of energy. I really like to climb, and run, and play. I guarantee I will play as long as you’re willing to. I’m also quite vocal and like to meow at my foster dad while he’s doing things around the house. One thing I don’t really like is having my paws touched – so you might need some help clipping my claws.

All in all, I’m a total sweetie, but I’m also very smart and catch on to my human’s routine very quickly. I am good with people, I get along with other cats, and I’m also spayed, tattooed, and dewormed. What can I say I’m just the whole package! If you think I’d be a good fit for you, just let those nice WHARF people know and they’ll set up a meeting. I’m sure you’ll fall in love with me at first sight.

Amelia

My name is Amelia and I came into care with 66 other cats. We were all very under socialized, skinny and a bit sick when we came into care. I was sent to foster care right away where I ran and hid for months. I wouldn’t let anyone touch me and I would vibrate if I was looked at from being so scared. One day my foster home decided to catch me wrap name in a blanket and snuggle me until I purred. We both thought it would never happen but after almost an hour I gave up and let the purring start. It was great and after that moment I decided that we were best friends. I follow her around the house now jump on her lap, sleep in her bed, rub up against her any chance I can and mew at her if she doesn’t pay attention to me. I love my life now and am so happy that I got this chance. I know that this is not my family but now I am finally ready to meet my new family. I love other cats kids and really love dogs. I am spayed vaccinated de-wormed and tattooed. Please come and adopt me!!!

Angel

I’m Angel and I was adopted for a few years but then dumped at the pound. That obviously wasn’t my forever family. I am now back to try this whole thing again. I am not sure why I was returned because no one has anything bad to say about me. I am a very polite kitty that loves to be around people. I am quiet and honestly my favourite thing is to just get soft pets from my owners. I am great with all animals and really gentle with kids, I am very clean and only use my cat trees for scratching. I will play but only if you play with me or throw me some toys here and there. I am now here for a 2nd chance at having a family. Please only adopt me if you promise to not abandon me. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed.

Ava

My name is Ava and I am one of the many tabbies on the website that come into care from the house of 67 cats. I was one of the less scared ones and settled into my foster home right away. I don’t need an adjustment period at all, just a human to snuggle me and maybe other animals to keep me company. I am extremely playful and love toys that I can carry around in my mouth. Don’t try and get them from me because I don’t let my toys go. I am great with dogs and kids too. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Please come and adopt me. I am a really fun girl!

Barbara – Waiting since April!

I am always instigating a game of tag, sleuthing for hidden treasures, and pranking my cat friends. I’m on a mission to rid the house of spiders, hair elastics, and whatever other small moving toys I can catch. I’m very curious too- I love watching out the windows to get the latest gossip on the neighbours. With all this work on my plate, I don’t have alot of time to cuddle. But once I get to know you, I will become attached and, even though I don’t like to admit it, I love to curl up in bed with you and maybe cross my little paws under my head before a good night’s sleep.

Caroline

I am now in foster care getting the TLC I need! Please apply to adopt so my foster mom can call you!

I’m Caroline. I came from the hoarding house of 67, I was one of the kitties who got very little attention and was not handled very much. When I was brought to WHARF I just wanted to hide behind anything I could or bury my face in blankets to pretend no one was looking at me. I was not doing good in a busy place with so many people trying to touch me so I was moved to foster care when I am actually loving it. The other foster kitty is kind of more dominant than me so I like to stay in the bedroom. But when my foster mom comes in there I am all over her looking for snuggles. I join her on the bed every night and every morning for cuddles. I think I would be more out and about if the other foster kitty wasn’t there or was a bit calmer around me. I do get along with everything but would really shine in a very quiet calm home. I am really petite and beautiful and have a sweet personality. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Please come and meet me, I promise to let you pet me!!

Charlie

I wandered into the home of one of the ladies who runs WHARF. She thought I was one of her WHARF cats from her outdoor colony who had come inside. Nope! I was a local cat who had left my own property for an adventure. After discovering my tattoo WHARF contacted the vet clinic, who contacted the family and they did not want me back. So here I am at WHARF enjoying the good life! I have food, friends and people company every day! Please come in to meet me and adopt me!

I am in foster care! Please click on the link below to have my foster mom call you!

I came into care after having a couple of litters at the hoarding house. While I was at the shelter, I was really grouchy — I spent most of my day hitting the other cats over their heads! But now I’m living with a foster family, and they say that I’m the best cat ever. I’m super gentle and affectionate, and I’ll follow you around all day long.

My foster mom thinks that I would make an awesome first cat, but she says I can’t be in a home with other animals. She wants you to know that I have some problems with scratching, too — I would never scratch my human, but I love the way that walls, doors, and couches feel under my claws. I’ll even try to scratch metal table legs if I decide my scratcher is too far away, so you’ll need to make sure that I have lots of cardboard and sisal to keep me occupied! I’m a really great cat with not too much energy, and I bet I’d even get along well with human kids.

Gianna

I am a shy girl who came into care with 66 of my closest friends. I am not sure about people and l avoid them when I can. I am coming around from being scared to being more open to attention. I will likely need some time to adjust when I come home with you. Change is scary but I am looking forward to the next change, when someone chooses me forever. I would get along fine with your other cats or be okay on my own. I hope you will get to know me!

Jewel

I was so scared when I first came to WHARF. I used to hide all day. I also climbed to the highest shelf in my room so the volunteers wouldn’t touch me. Now I have learned to like people. The ladies who cleaned my room were very nice. They pet me and said I am a good girl. At first when they pet me I would freeze and pin my ears back. I was very scared they would hurt me. Now I know that it is really nice to be touched and cared for. I am now in foster care and I love my foster mom. She is so kind to me and takes excellent care of me. I would like to be a part of your family but I might need an adjustment period to warm up to my new surroundings. I love to cuddle but I don’t like to be picked up. I like to be in charge of my own body. I like to talk to my foster mom in the morning. I have a quiet meow but I talk talk talk while she gets ready. I ask her where she is going and tell her to have a good day. I am a very lovely lady who just wants someone to love. Will you choose me? Follow me on natsfostercatsyeg on Instagram!

Jude

One of our super shy cats, Jude, coming out of his shell in foster care!

Posted by Shauna's Foster Dog Family on Saturday, November 2, 2019

Hey everyone, I’m Jude. My foster mom found me curled in a ball at the back of a cat house at the shelter. My foster mom knew that I needed a more comfortable place to sleep and she instantly fell in love with my handsome looks. When she brought me home I was TERRIFIED and after about a week I let out the cutest meow and the rest is history. I have a foster sister and omg do I love her. The moment she walks in the room I meow until she looks at me so she knows I’m here. I am looking for a home with a patient mom or dad that is okay with me taking a while to warm up to them but I will instantly fall in love with any critter. I am very sweet, a conversationalist and an independent boy that loves to play with my foster sister.

Lacey

Here is an update from her foster mom on our little Lacey. She is a sweet, gentle and affectionate kitty and I’m happy to report, she is beginning to come out of her shell. When Lacey (I call her Ladybug!) came into care, she was extremely scared and shy, hiding for hours/days on end. She is now coming out and dancing around at meal times, playing with her toys and her partner in crime Penelope (see her update as well) and coming to her mom for cuddles and brushing every night. Lacey is very quiet and barely makes a peep. She is loving and quite a delight. Not to mention absolutely beautiful – her markings are amazing. She still hides quite a lot, but can be tempted by hearing Penny frolicking and playing. Lacey has never had a single issue with the litter box and is very clean and dainty. She continues to be scared of lots of activity and loud noises so I would recommend a very quiet, calm home for her without too much action. She entertains herself and so can be left for hours at a time if need be. She is good with other cats and would likely do well with a playmate, although a really aggressive cat would not be ideal as she likely would never get any food. Lacey will be a loving and trusting girl with the right forever friend. I hope she finds someone who will love her as she deserves.

Luna

Luna here and I came into care with 66 other cats, we were stuck in a hoarding house. There are still lots of us left and we would love to go to a new home so we can show our personalities off to our forever families. I am not much of a people cat and would prefer to be friends with another cat instead. I will let you pet me and will sit on the couch with you but prefer to snuggle up next to a kitty instead. I love playing…..a lot. When I get going it is hard for me to stop and it will keep you on your toes. If your cat is lonely and needs a friend please come and adopt me. I promise to make them better. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed.

Penelope

A message from Penelope: My path has been lonely and scary. But all the words to describe me have magically changed. From scared, shy, timid, rigid…….now the words are affectionate, playful, energetic, loving, cheerful and happy….. what a journey this has been! The kind folks at WHARF saved me and started the process and now I am thriving in my foster home. Here’s more of my story:
Hello everyone – I am Penelope (my foster mom calls me Penny) a really sweet, energetic and playful girl. When I first came into care, I was very shy and scared and hid all the time. I have totally come out of my shell and am now friendly, bright and affectionate. I love cuddles, especially at breakfast, dinner and in the evenings, but do not like to be picked up. I wiggle and squirm and jump out of your arms! I like to come to you on my own terms. I am still getting used to the idea that I’m safe on my foster mom’s bed and usually sleep downstairs instead. I have started poking my nose in and jumping up on the bed once in a while, and my mom is very patient with me.
I love to play with toys and mice – my FAVORITE of all is the laser pointer. I could chase that around the house for hours. I am young and frisky and need quite a lot of stimulation as I get bored and lonely on my own. Although I will take some time to warm up and get used to people, I think that I would do best in a house with kids and interactive activities. Other cats to play with would be wonderful as I love to play with my current ‘partner’ Lacey as much as she will let me. I have become quite curious about the outdoors and love to watch the birds and blue jays at their feeders. I do try to ‘escape’ periodically so you will need to be careful with open doors and windows.
I’ve really come a long way – I am a loving and affectionate girl and a real cutie too! I make my foster mom giggle a lot with all the goofy things I do 😊 I hope you will give me a chance to entertain you as I would really love to find my forever home! Love Penny!

Pippa – I am the oldest cat in care, I’m 12!

Hi! My name is Pippa and I’m looking for a new forever home. Though it might take a couple weeks to warm up to you, I can be a very loyal and friendly cat. I really look forward to daily cuddles on the couch when you get home from work but I prefer to sleep on my own. My foster mom thinks I have very affectionate human-like mannerisms, for example reaching out to hold hands/paws or wrapping my arms around you like a hug. Fun fact! I’m a polydactyl cat, which means I have 6 toes on each foot! I prefer a quiet environment and while I’m fairly independent most of the time I do need my daily fill of attention. I will get upset if you’re out of the house for more than 12 hours though and might leave you a little unwanted reminder of my presence… But if you are someone who likes to chill and cuddle at home then we won’t have a problem! I’m not big into toys, I’m sort of past that stage in life. My ideal day includes breakfast, sunbathing, naps, and staying out the window pondering life’s greatest mysteries. Oh and treats! I love treats!

Sofia

I am a young, energetic, and beautiful cat with one of the softest coats my foster parent has ever felt. My tail looks like a fox tail with its characteristic swish. I kept to myself the first couple of days in my foster home but I warmed up very quickly. I really enjoy the company of both humans and other cats. However when other cats want space, I’m respectful and I give it to them. I will run to the door to greet you when you arrive home. Also, were you looking for a playmate? I LOVE to play and I am pretty athletic. My favourite toys are the laser pointer and feather stick. Have you ever seen a cat do a flip? I could show you with the encouragement of a good toy. If I sound like your kind of cat please call my foster parent Emily at 780-700-4514.

Tito – waiting since April!

Tito is my name and I came into care from a hoarding house and surprisingly a lot of my house mates are still here looking for new homes. Luke, Rachel, Rebbie and my sister Toya. When I first came into care you couldn’t touch me, I was so scared of everything and had never had human attention before. There were too many kitties in my previous home for our owner to spend one on one time with us. Me and my sister Toya mostly hung out together. It took a few months but I am a way different cat that likes to be pet and will approach you instead of hiding. I love sleeping on your bed too. I would prefer a home with other cats as I have never been alone before and if you don’t have another kitty my sister Toya would love to a home too. I just learned how to play too, who knew toys could be so fun! I am neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Adopt me!! And maybe Toya.

Toya is my name and I came into care from a hoarding house and surprisingly a lot of my house mates are still here looking for new homes. Luke, Rachel, Rebbie and my brother Tito. I was the last one to be seized at my house, I was so scared of everything that they almost decided on a barn home for me. But WHARF wanted to give me a chance at getting to be part of a family. It took a few weeks but here I am, a different kitty that seeks out people for pets. I just needed a chance and a bit of time. My foster home did great with me and Tito and we are so happy for that. This is way better than living in a barn!! Me and Tito are pretty close if you want two kitties but I will also bond with another cat in the house. I am spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed. Adopt me please and Tito if you want two!.
