Foster mom tells us: "Frankie is a very social girl. She gets along with other cats and has been around foster dogs with no issues.

"She loves to play with her toys and her foster brother kitties. Frankie loves to curl up with her humans when she wants attention or will just find a quiet hidey hole to grab a nap. I think she'd fit into any home, she's so chill."

Suggestion: if you really love white cats, Frankie's daughter Clover is also available.

Joy is: Having your very own silver tabby!

Born June 2021

Spayed female

Short haired silver tabby

Health: utd on shots, dewormed, spayed, exc. health.

Activity level: moderate

Okay to live with: cats, if properly introduced. good with dogs. good with children who know how to handle cats. Gradual introduction recommended.

Joy is a young silver tabby (15 months old) who came into rescue with some physical signs of her previous life: One ear tip frozen off, skinny and hungry, with some difficulty settling down indoors.

But we're happy to say that Joy has found her groove!

Getting spayed took the edge off her wanderlust and Joy has now settled into domestic life with her wonderful foster mom who calls her "JoyJoy":

"JoyJoy took a while to warm up to me but she sleeps beside me now. She is still very shy and she still hisses at my other cats sometimes. I think she would do very well in a house where she gets all the attention."

Joy is fostered in Melita. Talk to us if you'd like to meet her in person or chat with her foster. This little gal has lived, seen some hard times, and is ready to settle down. Could you be her destiny?

Bunnikins: The boy with the bunny-soft fur!

Calm. Loves people. Active and fun!

Breed: Brown tabby, short hair.

Gender: neutered male

Born: best guess April 2021

Health: good. FIV-FelV neg. Minor frostbite damage to one ear. Neutered, utd on shots. Has a chronic upper respiratory condition that flares up at times.

Activity level: Moderate

Good with: kids, cats and dogs.

See Bunnikins video here

Bunnikins loves to play - with hands, toys, other cats, playful dogs, whatever is handy! Bunnikins is an easy-going cat, the kind that families love because he's so relaxed that household activity doesn't faze or spook him. In fact, he thinks the vacuum is a toy!

His current favorite thing is the mouse on a string you see in the video. Even better when someone is making that mouse fly.

Bunnikins (aka Taquito) was found in the Assiniboine River Valley near the stone school house. Despite numerous postings, he was never claimed which is incredible to us because he is wonderful house pet material. He had an upper respiratory infection on arrival, but we are working on clearing that up.

Expert with the litter box, eats well - not fussy - and likes meeting new people. Loves pats and strokes and sweet words, especially from the ladies! When in play mode, he can get a little careless with his claws so regular trimming or nail caps are advised.

Taquito was nicknamed Bunnikins because of his bunny-soft fur, it's a real tactile experience. And his striped pants have to be seen to be believed!

Gracie:

Fair of face and full of grace!

Gender: Spayed female

Colour & Breed: Brown tabby, DSH

Born: Feb. 23, 2020

Health: Spayed, utd on vaccines, FIV - FelV negative, dewormed.

Gracie's a wee little girl who loves to cuddle and relax in comfy places. Her foster mum says she loves to play with toys and people's fingers, if given the opportunity! She sometimes gives a nip, so would need to be taught a few manners to live with very small kids. She goes from sweet to salty and back to sweet in a flash!

Gracie tolerates her foster family's dog, likes one of the cats and chases the other. So ya, salty and sweet!

Super soft fur and gentle eyes that look at you with love and affection. That's our Gracie. And she could be yours.

Panda v2.0: Young and fun!

Panda is learning how to play!! She really didn't know much about playing until she was in the safety of a wonderful foster home.

She is learning about love, fun, and how to be a part of a family. Now, Panda is ready for her very own forever family. (We call her Panda 2.0 because we have another Panda, a long haired senior gent, scroll down to meet him.)

She's healthy and happy. Take a look at her video and see for yourself: https://www.facebook.com/VirdenPetNetwork/videos/2008597979330299

Gender: female, spayed

Breed: DSH, dark grey and white

Energy level: average

Health: excellent. utd on shots. neg for FIV, FelV, spayed

Good with: children, cats (untested with dogs)

From foster mom: "She is a sweet girl that likes to nap and has a playful side. She is great with kids and other cats. She has never met a dog. But she has the personality of a princess and a soft meow when she is trying to be sweet. She sets good boundaries and will warn with a hiss when needed."

Haggis: Orange is the new black!

Age: born Jan. 2020 approx.

Breed: DSH ginger tabby

Gender: neutered male

Health: Excellent. Neutered, dewormed, vaccinated. FIV+ but symptom free.

Activity level: low-moderate

Good with cats and dogs, untested with children.

Best suited to a quiet home where he can bond with one or two special persons.

Haggis arrived last winter, hungry, cold and a bit miffed. At first he wanted nothing to do with people, although he never lashed out, just tried to avoid contact. He was one sad, lonely and confused lad.


Over a few months, Haggis slowly came to realize that human hands can bring good things: Treats. Cheek rubs. Head scratches. Meals. And love.


Now he actively seeks out affection, rolling with bliss in your arms and leaning in for kisses and head boops! He's right at home in the house, especially the catio, where he loves spending time in summer.

Be aware that it will take time for him to adjust to any new home. He bonds slowly but once bonded, is fiercely loyal and affectionate.

Haggis has come so far. Imagine how he would thrive in his forever home. Haven't you always secretly wanted a redhead? :-)

Lolly gives hugs

Age: 3 years

Gender: spayed female

Breed: DSH grey tabby

Health: Excellent, snap test negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed. She does have some special needs when it comes to her diet. She has IBD, and requires special food from the vet. She takes prednisolone every other day, to help control the IBD (irritable bowel disease).

Activity level: low to moderate.

Lolly has come so far since she came into rescue. We never thought we would see her hugging a human... but it happened! From her foster mom, "When Lolly first came to live with us a year ago I NEVER thought she would ever be a cuddly cat. She was always really sweet to us and liked people but she was an independent woman and preferred to walk around on her own and definitely didn’t want to be carried or held. People often say that it’s us and that we have a way with animals but this... this is all her, LOL! This girl has been full of surprises this past year. I’m so proud of her for choosing to branch out and try new things. Now she shares her bed with them. I often find them all sleeping in a pile and she’ll be right in the middle ❤️. Lolly is a perfect example of how sometimes all someone needs is time to figure things out on their own."

If Lolly sounds like a girl that could fit into your home, please give us a call!

Panda (the original!)

Age: Senior

Breed: DLH

Colour: White with black markings and a neat little black goatee.

Health: Excellent, FIV/FeLV negative, current vaccinations

Activity level: low to moderate

Good with other cats: yes

Good with dogs: untested

Ideal home: Quiet home with one or two people, Prefers women after spending much time with his foster mom.

Panda takes a while to settle in with new friends. He is shy, and picks one person to be loyal to. It will take a little time, but his loyalty and affection is worth the wait.

Panda does love to be brushed by his foster mom, so with treats and brushes, he can be won over. And that gorgeous long fur and chubby cheeks are icing on the cake!

Maddie: Tortie magic!

Breed: Tortoiseshell DSH

Gender: Spayed Female

Maddie came to us as a very shy, quiet girl, and is now ready to be adopted. She takes a while to warm up to you, but once she does, she looks forward to being on the receiving end of the affection. She is learning to play and get along with her foster brothers and sisters. She is a lovely young lady with wonderful house manners. Call today to find out more about our Maddie.

Marcelline

Age: Born 2020

Gender: spayed female

Health: Excellent. FIV/FeLV negative, vaccinations up to date.

Activity Level: Busy. But, when this girl naps she naps hard.

Marceline is pretty sneaky or so she thinks. She hid under the bed until both my husband and I were tucked in and then joined us, not realizing it’s okay to sleep with us.

She is still waiting for her forever family. Can it be your bed she’s waiting for?

Marceline is a very sweet girl, who does well with other animals (it takes her a while to get use to dogs but she learns to love them). Loud noises seem to still scare her, probably something that will get better with time. She does very well with children who are old enough to respect her space. She does need time to warm up to you but after that she’s your buddy for life.

Marbles

Age: mature adult

Gender: neutered male

Health: excellent, vaccinated, dewormed, FIV/FeLV negative

Activity level: low

Marbles is a very lovable kitty. He loves snuggles. Doesn't like toys or catnip. He prefers to just hang out with his humans. He's not a huge fan of being picked up. He lets you know when he wants to be pet and he makes you pet him. He can be playful when he wants to be. Any family would be lucky to have this big baby.

He has the most stunning golden eyes! They just melt your heart!

Puss: Ginger Love

Age: about 5 years old


Gender: Neutered male


Breed: DSH


Colour: Ginger tabby


Health: Excellent, FIV/FeLV negative


Activity level: moderate


Good with other cats: yes

Good with dogs: yes

Good with small children: Puss would do better with older children (teenager)


Puss came to us from the pound. He started off pretty scared of us human folk, but, he now adores his foster mom. He comes to her for cuddles and attention.


As with any change, cats need a little time to adjust to a new home. But Puss has proven that he welcomes the chance for a new beginning where he can show you the wonder of ginger love!

Yarrow: Loves kids

Age: born 2020

Gender: Spayed female

Breed: DSH, Tabby

Health: Excellent, snap test done on mom, which was negative, vaccinations up to date, spayed, dewormed

To say that Yarrow loves children is an understatement. She is fairly quiet and tends to be a bit shy to start, but then she does this amazing thing with children.

She is a lovely little lady, who is good with other cats, good with dogs and great with small children.
