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!!!

Angus – AT WHARF! Come in and adopt!

I was quiet and shy when I first came to WHARF. I came with 20 of my friends from a hoarding house. The ASPCA rescued me. I hated when people came into my room at the beginning and now I really like it. I’ve learned to sit by the door and say hi when people come in. If I put my paw out or my head out they will pet me! This is so great. I’ve seen my friends get adopted and this strategy really works. The more friendly you are the better chance you have at finding a family! I love the volunteers and enjoy their company every day. I get along well with other cats and dogs don’t seem to bug me. I have longer hair so I will need brushing so my hair doesn’t get tangled. I hope you will come to WHARF to meet me and maybe choose me to go home with you!!

Audrey

I am the most beautiful cat. I am a beautiful mix of orange and grey. I came into care with many other cats from a hoarding house back in July. I have grown up at WHARF. I came in as a tiny kitten and now I am all grown up. The volunteers have loved me, taken care of me and helped me be a nice, friendly kitty. I don’t love to be picked up but I do like people and attention. I don’t know why I haven’t been chosen. A few months ago I was moved to foster care as they said I had been at WHARF too long. I am enjoying living in a house with other cats and dogs. There are little kids here too which are super nice. I hope that someone will see my pretty picture and read my information and choose me. It’s my turn!

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!

I came into care from the ASPCA with a group of 14 cats. Mostly orange tabby cats! We are all friendly and ready for family life! I have been at WHARF for awhile and I have made a lot of new friends. I like all cats and enjoy their company. I can tolerate dogs but some of them at WHARF are a little bananas and I will hiss at them to show them that I am scary and I can protect myself. I am friendly and outgoing and don’t mind getting picked up or curling up next to you for a snuggle. I hope you ask to meet me! My foster mom thinks I might be a little younger than what the vet thought. I might be 1-2 as I am full of energy and spunk and I am so playful!

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!!

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!

Hi! I’m Emerald. I’m close to a year old and am quite a petite girl. I was very unhappy living at the Wharf office and was just hiding in the corner not wanting to be bothered. Since being in foster care, I have really started to show my true colors! It took me a couple of days to stop being so afraid but now that I am getting to know my foster family I come around for attention and cuddles and will talk to you if I want to be pet. I have a playful side as well if you saw the video posted of me on the website. I use my litterbox no problem and boy do I love being brushed! I purr and purr!I have been fine with the calm dog in the house and I would probably be fine with another cat as well if you already have one.Please adopt me and give me a safe and loving life!

Fernie

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.

I really like other cats and would do best in a home with other kitties. I am playful and really snuggly with them. I also am not scared of dogs or kids. I am really polite in the house and use a scratching post instead of anything else. I have been here along time and would really appreciate a family to call my own!

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 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.

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!

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. 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 – waiting since April!

Toya is my name and I came into care from a hoarding house. 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!.
