Adult Cats

Dion & Cassidy

Brothers Cassidy (white and orange) and Dion (silver tabby and white)

Born: May 2022


Neutered males

Health: excellent. Both neutered, first shots, neg. FIV, FelV

Good with: other cats. timid around their foster's barky dog, best suited to home with older children and calm or no dog.

Personality: these two are still getting used to life indoors and so depend on each other for security. But they're great with people they've learned to trust. Slow introductions recommended. 

Foster mom says: "They do everything together and with other kitties. They also love getting pets and sleeping with humans. We'd love them to get adopted together, they are so bonded."

Breed: Tuxedo DSH (bobtail due to injury)

Gender: Spayed female

Born: 2018

Health: excellent, vaccinated, spayed, healthy. No lingering effects from losing her tail, other than severe cuteness!

Good with: other cats. calm dogs only. older children.

Halo has been in foster care for a year now.  She came in out of the bitter cold winter last year with an infection from losing her tail to frostbite, and spent a few days at the vet where they patched her all up.

Halo is a petite beauty who has come leaps and bounds from her old life. She is such a sweetheart! She loves to have her back scratched, especially near her adorable little bob tail.

She is not fond of being picked up but will happily join you on your lap for that special one on one (see Facebook video).

When treats are being dished out, she is the first one there!

Lively dogs are not her favorite thing but other kitties are! She's being fostered in a home with lots of them.

She has not been introduced to young children, so would prefer a home with no children or older children who can treat her with respect. 

Apply now to adopt Halo, our angel girl.

Arthur wants YOU to want HIM!

Born: 2021 or 2022

Breed: Short haired tuxedo cat

Gender: neutered male

Health: utd on vaccinations, FIV+ symptom free, strong and active

Ideal home: other cats, dogs, untested with children but would likely adjust if given time.

Story: When Arthur arrived in rescue he was in rough shape from having been beaten up by male cats and having a bad case of ear mites which damaged his ear. That's why he always has such a "jaunty" look! 

At first, Arthur was understandably nervous and fearful. But after 30 days of TLC at VPN, he discovered how much he loves being around people! 

He now requests frequent uppies and hugs from his foster mom, and accepts all the kisses you have time for. In other words, he's done a complete 180 and become the ideal house cat. 

He adores wrestling with his foster brother Teddy in the living room (video) and outside in the catio! Also watching birds from the window ledge. And eating. Loooooves eating, our Arthur. 

It would be nice if he and Teddy could stay together but they can be adopted separately as long as there's another cat or two in the home. Remember our BOGO offer: The second cat is half price. 

Apply for one or both today: Application form.

"I just wanna be your Teddy Bear!"

Gender: neutered male

Breed: Black and tan tabby with white bib, socks and boots!

Born: early 2022

Health: excellent, vaccinated, dewormed, neutered.

Personality: Curious, lots of energy, great with other cats and dogs, okay with kids if they don't startle him.

Not long ago, Teddy was a stray living rough in the Cromer area. A kind lady began feeding him and one of his friends. She saw so much potential for Teddy as an indoor cat because he was always affectionate with her. 

When he came to VPN, he had to move foster homes twice (no fault of his own). But once he settled in, we found that he is a sweet, active boy who has gained a lot of confidence in foster care. Now, he readily comes for pets and cheek smears! And he's learning how to interact with skin without using his claws, YAY Teddy!

Former foster mom Erin said: "I can vouch for what a wonderful guy Teddy is. He just adores affection (and snacks) once he's comfy! He was very gentle with my 2 small children for some calm petting." 

Super power: The softest fur outside of rabbits (there's no fur on the inside LOL!) Seriously, it's luxurious. We think it won't take long for Teddy to settle into a new home and bond with his special somebody/ies. 

We'd love our Teddy Bear to be adopted into a home with at least one other playful kitty on hand. Apply here.

Diesel: Sweet Senior with Lots to Give

Sponsored by Dawn Danielson, Erika and Emily

Adoption fee paid for approved adopter

Age: about 13-16 years old

Gender: neutered male

Breed: DSH

Colour: Black

Health: excellent, he is FIV positive, but is not showing any health issues. Eats well and uses his litter box without fail.

Activity level: low 

Likes: tolerates adult cats but really enjoys kittens. Ignores dogs and likes older kids.

Diesel is a quiet cat, who would love to live out his retirement years in the comfort of a quiet home. 

He would be fine as an only cat. Diesel spends his day napping, eating and then napping some more. He would love to be able to curl up beside his human and just nap. He’s not a big cuddle cat, but he does love laying with you when you’re watching tv or just sitting quietly. He patiently waits for his food and he loves to eat in his dog crate. If you are looking for an older, wiser cat who is patient and kind, Diesel is your cat.

Joy is: Having your very own silver tabby!

Born May 1, 2020

Spayed female

Short haired silver tabby

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

Activity level: moderate

Joy is: good with dogs. good with older children who know how to handle cats. Joy would be best suited as an only cat. Gradual introduction recommended.

Joy is a young silver tabby who came into rescue with some physical signs of her previous life: One ear tip frozen off, skinny and hungry, in heat and having 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" and says:

"JoyJoy took a while to warm up to me but she sleeps beside me now. She is still very shy and 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 Pipestone. 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? 

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.

Puss: Ginger Love

Sponsored by Erika

Adoption fee paid for approved adopter

Born: 2016

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 children: yes if introduced gently

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. 

Some comments from foster mum: 

"Puss likes to enjoy the cool winter days lounging around the house. He’s a very low energy cat. Puss is well trained to use a scratch pad instead of your furniture, never any messes outside of the litter box. He is very affectionate and not an overly talkative gentleman.

"He gets along okay with my dogs and the neighbors. Will need a slow intro in his new home.  I believe he would adjust fine to being an indoor only cat if he moved to an urban situation.  To be honest, he enjoys the outdoors to roll in the grass and dirt and wander around the farm here."

Lolly gives hugs & so much more!

Age: born 2016 

Gender: spayed female

Breed: DSH grey tabby

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

(She will be having a dental surgery shortly, paid for by a friend of Virden Pet Network)

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 few years 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. 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!
