A new ARF kitty!

1393F - "Tia"
Last weekend, three new kitties made their way to ARF, another should arrive early this week. The first one is Tia, a gorgeous ten-month old medium-hair tortoise shell. She is radiant and very affectionate. She loves to curl up with her foster sister, Sassy, and she loves to get belly rubs from her foster mom. She had some matted fur when she came in so she'll need regular grooming to keep her looking her best. I just love her and wish I was fostering her!!

Finnigan is verrrrrrrrrrrry comfortable here...

...but he'll settle into his forever home easily too. He's big on personality and would be quite content as the only animal in a house, as long as he was getting lots of attention from 'his people.' He loves 'his people!' He lives with dogs and other cats. He is mostly indifferent to the cats. He doesn't mind dogs either and he could take them or leave them, but he's content to sleep on 'his peoples' bed' even if 'his peoples' bed' also has dogs on it!

Sim-Sim is coming out of his shell

Sim-Sim is a long, lean cat, but he is pretty skinny at only 7.4lbs. He was very shy when he first came to our place, but he's venturing out more and more; sometimes we find him on the top of the cat post in the living room, sometimes on the couch or even wandering around the living room. I've fallen in love with this shy guy - it makes me so happy to see him becoming more and more comfortable in our house. It's so entertaining to watch him play like a kitten with the twitchy tail or some of the cat nip toys.

**Update on the kittens** Cameo (calico), Aspen (orange) and Shiloh (tabby) are now ready for adoption and they should be on the website very soon! Two sweet little black kitties just came in today from rural Alberta, along with an older kitten/young adult, a beautiful Tortie with medium-length hair. She'll be available very soon. She has the most beautiful coat.

Finnigan has made himself at home...

He curls up just about anywhere... and loves to curl up with his people. I was working on the computer on the couch when he curled up like this (he started on my lap making it difficult to type). He is 100% purrs and snuggles, so if you're looking for a super friendly, confident and dog-friendly cat, this is your guy!

This little lady is a lovely tabby with medium-length hair. She also loves to be brushed, and likes to hang out with her brother and sister. She's definitely the shyest of the bunch, and would love to go to a home with another cat, or ideally, with one of her siblings!


Isn't he gorgeous? He doesn't have a name yet either, but he's a total heart-breaker. He's got lovely, medium-length hair and loves to be brushed.


She doesn't have a name yet, but this short-haired calico has lots of spunk and loves to PLAY!

New ARF kitties!

This morning we brought in 3 new ARF kittens. They are so cute, I wish they were staying with us. They made a brief stop here before getting vaccinated and heading to their foster home. They don't have names yet, and aren't quite ready for adoption, but stay tuned!

Finnigan is Pet-Of-The-Week

Finnigan is ARF's Pet-of-the-week! (He thinks he is always pet-of-the-week!) Maybe this will be the week that he meets his forever home! Whenever that is, we'll miss the big guy curling up with us at night and snuggling while we're watching TV. We've always fostered young kittens, so Finnigan and Sim-Sim are firsts for us, and they've both fit into the household so nicely! Here's a picture of Finnigan making himself at home:)

Finnigan is a love-bug

Finnigan is full of purrs and cuddles and he loves to nuzzle against you and give you kitty `hugs`. He`s completely indifferent to the other cats - he occasionally tries to get them to play but usually just makes himself at home. He also lives with dogs and doesn`t really notice them. We`re not really sure why this guy hasn`t been adopted yet. He`s an awesome kitty who would settle easily into a new home!

Sim-Sim is coming around. He seems comfortable with other cats and with the dogs, and he's warming up to his people friends but he's just generally very shy. It's really exciting to see him play with the twitchy-tail or a catnip toy every once in a while.

He's even starting to leave his cat house now and again, venturing into the basement or the living room to explore. We're looking forward to watching him as he continues to develop more confidence in our home.

Finn-Finn (aka Finnigan) & Sim-Sim

Well, another first for us, I guess. The Dexter kitties have all been adopted (save Morgan who will be adopted this weekend) and the space in our home is needed for two orange cats, one a young-adult, and one an adult. While they are both orange, short-haired tabbies and both male, they have very different personalities.

Finn-Finn (Finnigan) is just under a year of age and is a very playful and confident little kitty. He has lived with other cats and has lived with dogs...good thing, because our dogs LOVE cats. He has adjusted very quickly to a new home. He loves to follow his foster folks around and loves to check out his current home. He loooooooves attention and his little motor lets you know.

Sim-Sim is just over two years old and very lean. He's a beautiful dark orange colour and is slowly warming up to his new foster family. He came to ARF with his prized tree-house, and so far this is his safe-haven, but every once in a while he gathers his confidence and takes a cautious stroll around the living room. He's very, very quiet and although he's still adjusting, he likes the attention of his foster folks.

Morgan and Sophie may have found their forever homes!!!

It's been a busy week with ARF's cat program! Morgan has most likely found her forever home, and I'm also happy to report that her sister, Sophie, has also found a family...paws crossed for both of them!

Check out this beauty!

Sophie - sibling to the Dexter Crew
I'm not fostering this little beauty, but she's from the same litter as Masuka, Batista, Morgan and Dexter. She is ready to be adopted and should be up on the website very soon. Her name is Sophie. She likes to play with her littermates and has been living in a home with a small child.
