Katniss was brought into the clinic as a 6-month-old kitten; she was found living outside. She is a sleek black cat with bright yellow eyes, she is very inquisitive of her new home and has made quick friends with her other cat roommates. Katniss was introduced to human interaction late in her life and is scared when new people approach her, but she is slowly coming out of her shell. Her foster mom reports that when she has people over Katniss will come out of hiding and sit near their feet but will still not allow being pet. Every once and awhile her foster mom will make her snuggle with her, and after a few minutes she will purr, but Katniss will eventually run off to play with her, one foster brother. Katniss is food motivated, and she is at her cuddliest around meal time, this time allows her foster mum to pick her up for snuggles and Katniss will loudly purr. This little black cat enjoys hunting for her prey (toy on a string) and will chase a ball when thrown. Katniss is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped & viral tested (bother FIV & Feline Leukemia negative). Katniss will require a very patient and calm adopter; she is a sweet cat that needs her person(s) to understand that she does not fit into a cookie cutter of what a house cat typically is, but she does want to interact with her new family with time and understanding.
Sweet, Kingston encapsulates this word to a tee. He has such a sweet and gentle nature about him it is no wonder why a lot of staff members have such a soft spot for this handsome boy. He had a rough go at first, he was hit by a car on Kingston road and a client rushed him to us for care, luckily he did not sustain any serious injuries but you could tell that he had a hard life prior to coming into our care.
Since then Kingston has come out of his shell slowly and has learned that humans can be trusted especially when they have food. He LOVES food, so much so that he will need to be meal fed because he would eat until he bursts, he is at a perfect weight and without meal feeding, he would quickly become obese. He is currently on a urinary clam diet to help him with the transition of living indoors. He is approximately 4 years old, white and brown tabby spotted DSH, he has been vaccinated, dewormed, neutered and viral tested (negative for both FIV & Feline Leukemia). Even with his earlier years living outside he has meticulous litter box habits and likes to keep himself groomed and looking good for possible adopters. Kingston can be quite shy at first so he would need a calm and patient new parent that would be understanding, that it will take time for him to show his gentle, affectionate nature, older children who will understand his shyness may be ok. He would do well with another friendly feline or calm dog. This sweet king is worth the effort.
Ms. Peetza is a beautiful, sweet, sassy 6-year-old calico cat. She is an affectionate, outgoing and talkative cat who has a type A personality but does enjoy a good cuddle. Peetza came into the adoption program at Beaches when she was unwell, the staff at Beaches saw her sweet nature so she was surrendered to the clinic so she could be nursed back to health, she has overcome that obstacle and is now ready to find her forever home. She follows the ways of the calico by which she needs her “me time” during the day but she will also come to you regularly for affection known as another type of “me time” as in “it’s time you give me all your time because I want it”. She is a very confident feline, and when she has enough of your attention (a belly rub on rare occasion if she feels like it), she will tell you as much and walk away. Peetza has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and viral tested (negative for both FIV & Feline Leukemia). Peetza would be best suited in adult and older children household, she would also like to insist that she be the only fur member, she does not need other “pets’ vying for your attention.
This wide-eyed tuxedo cat is very outgoing and incredibly sweet with a small streak of sassiness. She is very playful, enjoys using a scratching post and has perfect attendance at the litter box. BB gets along well with her other cat roommates but does enjoy showing her hyperactive cat-mate who is in charge of the group (Her!) in a firm and assertive way without any unnecessary aggression. She is roughly 2 years old and was found outside by a member of the community so there is not too much information on her background. She has been dewormed, vaccinated, microchipped and will soon be spayed. When she received her physical exam from the vet at Beaches they noticed she has a heart murmur, while this does not seem to be affecting her currently, this will require monitoring for the rest of her life. BB is very sweet and calm with humans and would do well with older children. As you can see from her photo she loves to snuggle on warm folded laundry and in her spare time lies on her back thinking of what her new forever home will be like.
