4 month old calico kitten. Friendly and affectionate at shelter.
She is a senior Brown Tabby
Is a dilute Calico senior is the happiest chattiest girl ever. She arrived from Quebec and moved right in exploring and talking and posing for photos. She’s a real ham! Love her
Oh my gosh Nala is a little darling. Unlike ALL our other cats Nala has been a patient of ours for most of her life so we know her very well. She has been loved and spoiled. Her parents have retired and want to travel more ( GULP) so they begged us to take her. She has a very clean bill of health…full bloods and dental cleaning ( even though her gums were so perfect). She has always been an only cat and she seems to prefer it that way. She loves curling up in her bed. She is impossible to get a good photo because as soon as I open the cage she’s up and wants love… so much love. She carries this HUGE ribbon around with her and is playful. She will come with her bed and toys. She is darling and petite! My photos do her NO JUSTICE
Euny is a stunning 8 month old DSH female Tabby and white and everyone loves her. Apparently on her travels from Quebec she so wanted to be cuddles and just lkept pawing at the drivers and sticking her nose out. They all wanted to let her out. She handles it all very well and when they didn’t make it to us inn time she overnighted at a driver’s home thankfully. She is still a bit shy however but loves our cuddles.
She was dumped at shelter by her owner’s new girlfriend:-(
The first photo is her at the shelter…so cute even then
Mother of Karen and Grandmother of Echo, Delta, Charlie and Blue…. all within 3 years of life. She is sweet and is all thumbs…front and back :-)
She is a medium haired Black 3 year old female. She loves her daughter Karen. In the ideal world they would never have to say goodbye to each other
She is the daughter of Ms. Tisdale and is 2 years old. She is a short haired social friendly black beauty with 26 toes. Seen with her here are Echo ( adopted) and Charlie.
Both Polydactyl the mom’s mom is 3 yrs old and the mom is 2 years old and the babies are 5 weeks old…. not idea who the dad is :-)
Very sweet senior kitty. Left at the shelter at 14 y/o. She’s sweet and calm. Her personality is funny and so lovable. She’s still playful, just loves chasing the red dot, or catching a feather boa, and opening doors and cupboards! She loves tummy rubs and to kiss your face.
She is so happy and content to be snuggly in her little bed, and will purr & snore for hours there. She loves lying in front of the fireplace!
A quiet home would be just perfect for her, without a lot of commotion and activity.
She is declawed, a strictly indoor home is essential.
A petite sweet 2 yr old female. She is a little timid in our busy clinic but she is oh so gentle and easy to cuddle and love and purr…she loves to purr when you stroke her soft belly fur! She is simply lovely! sHE IS OUR Agnes’s HOME TO GET SOME tlc. sHE LOVES TO BE PICKED UP AND LOVES TO SLEPP ON YOUR BED IN HER BED :-) also she has the cutest, high pitched meow ever. She’ll always greet you with a meow when she comes over to you on the couch or in bed & when you go over to her to pet her she always meows Hello. So sweet.
The neglect changes you.
The abuse hardens you.
The suffering breaks you. …
The ignorance angers you.
The indifference disturbs you.
The injustice destroys you.
On a daily basis…your faith will be tested.
Your heart will be wounded….
Your soul will be altered.
On a weekly basis…you’ll question yourself.
You’ll question your strength.
You’ll question the world.
On a monthly basis…you’ll fall down.
You’ll get up.
You’ll go on…
On a yearly basis…you’ll look back…
You’ll see faces…
You couldn’t save them.
You’ll learn to mourn.
You’ll learn to trust a little less.
To do a little more.
To fight a little harder.
You’ll learn to try.
You’ll learn to fail.
You’ll learn when to hold on.
When to give up.
When to let go.
You’ll learn who you are.
What you stand for.
Why that matters.
Then… at times… you’ll forget why you matter.
You’ll question what you’re doing.
You’ll wonder if it’s worth it.
But…here’s the good news… When you forget…
When you question…
When you wonder…
All you have to do…
Is take a look around…
And you’ll see them.
You’ll see their faces.
You’ll see their smiles.
You’ll feel their love.
In their eyes, you’ll see their journeys…
You’ll remember their beginnings…
You’ll know how far they’ve come…
You’ll remember when they didn’t know you…
When they didn’t trust you…
When they’d given up.
You’ll remember how you healed them…
How you loved them…
How they loved you, too.
And as you look back…
You’ll want to move forward…
For them… and because of them.
In your darkest hours, you’ll look around…
To find the differences made…the hope given…
and the lives saved…
Because you existed.
In those moments, when you look into their eyes…
Every doubt will be erased.
Every question will be answered.
Every worry will subside.
Because in that instant…in each of your hearts…
You both share the very same thought: “Every bit of pain was worth it…for this moment here with you.”
And honestly…no matter what else happens…
Those moments hold all the strength you need…
To keep going.
Rescue is pain.
Rescue is joy.
Rescue is worth it…because they are worth it.
And that’s the honest truth.

February 2014 A gentle touch, a warm lap, a hug . Our previously abused or neglected cats have maybe never known any simple acts of kindness until they came here. They are unloved. The unwanted. And they are desperately waiting to be rescued.
Most of our cats were rescued from a high kill Quebec shelter, a shelter that takes in all unwanted cats. Unfortunately, because of the failing economy in that area, the shelter is overrun and due to this high volume, cats must be euthanized if they can’t be placed within several days of their capture or drop-off at the facility. The shelter partly relies on Bay Cat Hospital to save as many as we can. We cannot save more cats from this shelter until our current family gets placed. So please open your homes and hearts if you can.
Thank you all for your assistance in our endless rescue efforts in the past and thank you for spreading the word about these previously disposed of cats. We couldn’t have placed them without you.
Please look at some of the 100’s of cats you have recently helped us save by clicking on the link and please help us save more!
