Rescue Me ID: 17-04-16-00183Dash (male)

Bengal    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Cats, Good with Adult Men Only 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Dash is a neutered male Bengal who is highly strung and can be aggressive. He lives with 4 other neutered male domestic short hairs and I believe he should not be living in this environment. Although high energy and needs to play I feel he would be better off with other Bengals. He has been spraying which I think is indicative of his agitated emotional state. He has recently had a health check, up to date on vaccinations and recently had tooth extraction so dental health is good. Has claws but is an indoor cat.

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-29-00475Jake (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    We rescued Jake from a family who could no longer care for him. We truly love him, and would love to keep him forever, but we are moving to Nigeria. I would normally not think twice about taking him with me, but Hake needs to have the freedom to be an inside and outside cat. He would be so depressed in Nigeria because he would not have the option to be outside. As much as it breaks my heart, he NEEDS to be in a home that would allow him to come and go. He is the most affectionate car you will ever meet and so docile he is called a dog in a cat body frequently. He loves people, all animals, and is very food driven. He is happy, he ... (Read More)purrs all the time, and we love him dearly. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-03Oliver (male)

Domestic Cat    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Cats, Not Good w/ Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Oliver, our handsome red tabby boy. If you are an adult-only home that is looking for a mature cat to share your life with, look no further. Oliver is an extremely loyal cat who bonds closely with his people. He can take a little bit of time to warm up to new faces, but once he knows you, he's snuggly, interactive, and chatty. Oliver loves to play with his laser toy and chase the dot around the house. He's 10 years young and has good energy for playing. In his previous home, Ollie was used to going outdoors but now that he's mellowed a bit with age, he is happy watching the birds from inside the window. He would make a good gardening ... (Read More)companion, and would be happy to lounge on the porch in the sun. If Ollie were a girl, we would describe him as a bit of a Diva. He likes attention on his own terms, but when he wants to be left alone he isn't afraid to let you know. He is an interesting mix of independent yet affectionate. He will become a wonderful companion to whomever takes this big guy home. This is what his foster mom has to say about Oliver: Oliver is a really sweet guy. He is snuggly, chatty and always there to meet me at the door when I come home. He is quite playful in the evenings and morning, racing around like a kitten and tossing his toys into the air. Oliver is fairly happy watching birds through the window, but he does long to be outside in a yard. He would definitely like to be somebody's gardening partner! Oliver is not comfortable with other animals, or with children, so he needs an adult-only home where he will be an only-child. Someone with previous cat experience is important for Oliver. He has some minor compromises to his vision, so sometimes Ollie can be a bit uncertain in unfamiliar situations. It is important to be able to read his body language to note when he's feeling uneasy and react accordingly. This handsome boy is a real catch and will be a great retirement buddy for an experienced cat owner who lives a laid back lifestyle. If you'd like to learn more about Oliver, please contact us at victoriapets@gmail.com and tell us about your family. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-02Mira (female)

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Cats, Not Good w/ Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This beautiful, young cat is Mira. She came into our care after her loving owner passed away. Mira has been through a lot of change over the last few months, so she's a little apprehensive when first meeting new people, but she warms up quickly and is the sweetest little girl. Mira is chatty, has a great little meow, and loves to curl up on your lap or next to you on the bed. Mira is only 2 years old and has already had to deal with a fair bit of change. It is important for her to find a family that will be able to commit to caring for her for the next 15+ years. Mira grew up in a home where she had regular access to the outdoors and is ... (Read More)used to spending a lot of time out and about. She has not been happy being cooped up inside during the last few months so would really like a home with a safe outdoor area where she can roam and enjoy the great outdoors (ideally an acreage.) Although this little girl is sweet and affectionate toward humans, she is not friendly with other cats. She needs to be the only pet in the home, and in an area where there aren't a lot of other neighbourhood cats that might cause conflict. Mira really likes snuggling with calm people who are sitting still, but she's uncertain around people with high energy, who are loud, or who are always on the go. She will do best in a quiet, adult-only home, that has a serene atmosphere. If you think that your home might be a good fit for Mira, please contact us at victoriapets@gmail.com and tell us about your family. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cat in Canada
    Cats can make good pets in Canada if they match your IifestyIe. Domestic Cats have been intriguing companions for humans since ancient times. Worldwide, cats are even more popular than dogs as pets. Sadly, huge numbers of cats are in need of adoption and care. A cat owner who no longer wants the cat, or is no longer able to care for a cat, may drop the cat off at a shelter or simply abandon it. Overcrowding in shelters, along with too few adoptive families for the cats, leads to many wonderful pets having to be euthanized. Abandoned cats fend for themselves and breed in the wild, forming colonies of feral cats. Feral cats have such a difficult existence that they typically only live an average of two years, whereas domestic cats can live an average of twelve years with proper care. Organizations exist that can catch and tame feral kittens, and then place them in a home, but adult ferals can rarely be socialized to trust humans. Meanwhile, many prospective cat owners choose to purchase a kitten from a pet store or breeder, and may not know that even purebred cats and kittens are often available for adoption.

    Once someone is ready for the responsibility of caring for a cat, adoption can be an incredibly rewarding decision. Adoption benefits cats, owners, and society alike. Adopting a cat is typically much less expensive than purchasing one. Shelters often have a wide selection of very sweet, friendly cats and kittens, including purebreds. Adoptive owners enjoy bonding with their pets, and have the extra satisfaction of knowing they have rescued a wonderful companion from a hard existence. Every cat adopted means one less cat has to be euthanized. Every kitten purchased new results in one less opportunity for adoption to take place. If you are ready for a pet cat, please consider adoption!

lnteresting Cat Trivia Canada Fact Sheet
    All domestic cats are descended from African wild cats. Cats were considered divine in ancient Egypt and are depicted in hieroglyphs and found mummified in the tombs of Pharaohs. The cats in the Broadway show, Cats, were inspired by feral cats in London made famous as T.S. Eliot's Jellicle Cats.
