Featured Cats

Shauna (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Shauna (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black and White, 5 to 10 years, Medium hair, female
Shauna is 6 3/4 years old has been at the shelter for a little over 2 years now. What she really needs is a home of her own. If you are looking for a princess, look no further. She is delicate and a bit timid, but she loves to be petted and adores being brushed. Shauna is part Persian, and, as such, will sometimes have tear staining, very common in the breed. All it requires is an occasional gentle cleaning, and she will be as good as new. A real darling for a quiet home; no young children would be best. FYI, Shauna is sweet on Yoda. Wouldn't it be wonderful if she and Yoda were adopted TOGETHER?
Flash (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Flash (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Calico, 10 to 15 years, Short hair, female
Its Flash's turn to be in the spotlight. She is 11 1/2 year old and is a long time shelter cat who does not like dogs. She LOVES cats though, and is mother to them all. So, she will NEED to have cats around so she can mother them. She is a very sweet girl and will melt your heart. Flash requires special care however. Please inquire about Faith if you are interested in adopting her.
Lela (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Lela (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black and White, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female
Lela is loving being inside again, after having been on her own for almost a year. A neighbour noticed her wandering about but assumed she was someone's pet. When winter came and Lela was still outside most of the time, this kind woman began feeding her. Lela was easy to catch; she came right to us, a sure sign that she wanted a real home again. Lela is quite responsive to loving, and is so grateful to be warm and cared for. Consider giving this beauty a home again. Lela does NOT seem to be particularly fond of other cats though, so she would be best as the only pet in the home. Be prepared for some love nips too! Lela is 4 3/4 years old.
Christian (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Christian (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Christian found himself living in a colony of feral and friendly cats; we don't know for how long. He has responded beautifully to being back indoors again. He is shy and gentle, but he loves having his ears, cheeks and chin rubbed. He arches his back to express his joy. He also enjoys chasing things. Christian will only continue to blossom with your one-on-one loving care. Why not give Christian a place in your home? You won't regret it. And if you have another cat already, that will suit Christian just fine. He is always snuggled up with at least one other shelter cat. Christian is 4 1/4 years old.
Sabrina (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Sabrina (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black and White, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female
Sabrina is 2 years old and is a local stray. She is now thoroughly enjoying human attention. Sabrina is a bit shy at first but, once you win her trust, Sabrina relaxes and allows you to pet her and scratch her ears. She doesn't like being picked up though - yet. We have seen that attitude change many times. So . . . Sabrina needs YOUR help to find a new, forever home where she can continue to build her confidence.
Angel (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Angel (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, female
Angel is a beautiful, 4 1/2 year old girl with her clean white coat with its splashes of tabby markings. She began her life as a feral but prefers the coziness of indoor life now. She has been in the shelter for a little over 2 years and has become quite friendly. Angel loves to play on our wheel and talks up a storm so that everyone knows where she is. Angel still does NOT like to be picked up though, but that can change with lots of love, patience, and one-on-one attention. She will let you pet her on her head, but she has to know you well first. Though Angel is missing some teeth, she makes up for that by having a few extra toes! Yes, this girl is a polydactyl. Check her out! Angel gets along well with other cats.
Triscuit (at Pet Valu on Yonge St., Barrie)Triscuit (at Pet Valu on Yonge St., Barrie) - Calico, 1 to 5 years, Medium hair, female
Triscuit is a 5 year old girl from Holland Landing. She was rescued and taken to a shelter in her area, but no one claimed or adopted her. We are hoping to provide her with a good family up here. Triscuit melts at the touch of your hand and will lick you to show her pleasure. She also likes to rub against you and/or lay beside you, BUT she has her moments when she suddenly decides she has had enough and gives you a nip or a paw swipe. Can you find a place for Triscuit in YOUR heart and home? A quiet home with no pets or children would be ideal.
Brodie (in foster care but available for adoption)Brodie (in foster care but available for adoption) - Grey, 6 months to 1 year, Long hair, male
In the urban dictionary's definition, Brodie means "The Man", a really caring, loyal friend who is good looking and active. We are just beginning to understand our Brodie's personality. He is from a house that had 60+ cats, so he is somewhat shy. He allows you to pet him and scratch his ears, but he is timid about closer forms of contact right now. We feel confident that Brodie will relax and become "The Man" once he is into the right home, where he will realize that he is well loved and that he will be cared for throughout the remainder of his life. Give Brodie a chance, won't you? This handsome fellow is 1 3/4 years old and is microchipped.
Pooh (in foster care but available for adoption)Pooh (in foster care but available for adoption) - Tabby, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Pooh is a 1 3/4 year old stray who came from the Georgina area. When he first arrived, he was quite terrified and anti-social. Since he has been in foster care though, this young man has come out of himself. Pooh definitely prefers women to men; he just doesn't seem to want anything to do with a man. He used to head butt his foster mom and sleep with her every night. He loves being petted, but is still a bit skittish. Every now and then, Pooh will swat you - not using his claws - a love smack perhaps? Pooh probably wouldn't be the best boy to adopt if you have young children, but he is good around other cats.
Snooky (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Snooky (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, male
Snooky is 6 3/4 years old and has been with us for quite a while. He was originally a feral born rescue who was extremely fearful of people. Not anymore! Now, Snooky is affectionate and friendly. Snooky is great with other cats. This sweet boy deserves to know what a real home is all about. Maybe YOU can find it in your heart to welcome him into yours? Snooky has a skin irritation that can easily be treated. Just ask us about it.
Bylow (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Bylow (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Bylow is 3 3/4 years of age and loves to watch people come and go. He will usually brush against your leg so that you pet him. He has soft fur and warm, intelligent eyes. Bylow keeps his slim physique by working out daily on our wheel. Try to catch him in action; he stops occasionally to make eye contact with you. Bylow has been with us quite awhile; he came in as an unwanted cat. How sad as he is a lovely boy. You can't necessarily pick up Bylow, but he does want to be near you. Isn't that enough?
Tia (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Tia (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Orange, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female
Tia is a very pretty 2 year old girl. She was originally a barn cat but has been with us for almost her entire, short life. She is timid until she gets to know you well. Then Tia will allow you to pet her, but she is still afraid of being picked up. That may come once she knows she is safe and loved in a home. Tia would be best in a quiet home where she can be introduced very slowly into the new environment. Does she suit YOUR home and lifestyle?
Cindy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Cindy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Grey, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, female
Cindy is a little over 6 years old and she is gorgeous. She has been with us for most of her life, and we would love to see her find a home. Cindy loves to be petted and have her ears scratched, but she does NOT like to be picked up or put in your lap. Cindy will require a person who has lots of love to give her AND lots of patience to help her adjust. She is well worth it though. Won't you give her a chance?
Skrinkle (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Skrinkle (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Grey, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Skrinkle is a 4 1/2 year old stray who was brought in to us, but whose owners were found before he was adopted out. Sadly, his owners have felt compelled to surrender him back to us. Why? Ever since they rescued him as a kitten, he seems to have had a problem consistently using his litter box. We just discovered that he has crystals, a painful problem. No wonder he was urinating in various places. We are currently working on getting rid of those crystals. If you are interested in Skrinkle, we can formalize his adoption with you but keep him with us until he is totally over the problem. He is such a darling. Skrinkle is sweet-tempered and gentle. He flips onto his back so that you will rub his belly. He just doesn't like you massaging his declawed front paws - he nips - or picking him up. When he was out as a stray for several months, he was beaten up and, due to a bad tail injury, one of his vertebrae is raised. As long as his tail isn't pulled and he is given Glucosamine daily, our vet assures us that he will be fine. Let's give this big boy a quiet home with no other pets or young chilren, ok?
Milly (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Milly (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, female
Milly's owner died and the family wasn't interested in adopting her, so they surrendered her to us. She is 8 years old and is a very sweet girl. Every ounce of her is filled with love to give. She loves to lay in her favourite person's lap and be petted. And if you don't give her enough attention, she will head butt you. Milly is NOT good with other pets, so she should be the ONLY PET in the house.
Maxfield (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Maxfield (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Grey, 1 to 5 years, Long hair, male
Maxfield is a 3 year old stray from the Georgina area whom no one claimed. We decided to give this gorgeous guy a chance here in Barrie. Maxfield gives head butts to get your attention and thoroughly enjoys being held. In addition, he is quite the chatterbox, especially if he thinks you might have food for him. Maxfield does NOT particularly like other cats, however, so he should really be the sole pet in the home. Maxfield also demonstrates some "catitude" from time to time in the way of nips and swats. He just wants to assert himself as the alpha.
Argentina (foster care but can be adopted)Argentina (foster care but can be adopted) - Grey, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Argentina is a 5 year old stray with an unusual taupe coloured tabby coat. He is long and lean but he isn't mean. Instead, he loves to have you pet him and/or pick him up. Argentina lets you know he is happy by purring away contentedly. He is also very playful but, when he has had enough of that activity or of human loving, Argentina will give a little love nip and walk away. Does he sound like a good fit for YOUR home? He is neutered and up-to-date with his shots and says he will get in a carrier whenever you are ready. He has recently had a full mouth extraction, but that simply means he needs to eat lots of wet food.
Megara (at Pet Valu on Wellington St., Barrie)Megara (at Pet Valu on Wellington St., Barrie) - Tortoise Shell, 5 to 10 years, Medium hair, female
Megara is not happy with her photo, but she had to be shaved due to severe matting. It will grow back in and be even more lovely than before. Megara is 8 years old and came from the Georgina area. We have no idea how long she was outside on her own. We do know that she is NOT fond of other cats, but that she DOES enjoy being petted and held. She purrs her happiness in return. Megara would be best in a quiet home with no other pets. She is microchipped.
Guiness (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Guiness (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Guiness is just 5 years old and has lived almost his entire life at our shelter. He and 20 other kittens were left in 3 carriers at our back door during the pouring rain. Some of the other cats have been adopted, but Guiness is patiently waiting for HIS person to come along. He is a sweet boy and loves to be petted. Guiness would prefer NOT to be picked up though. Guiness tends to have some wheezing issues, but he is in good health apart from that. And, Guiness gets along well with other cats. Don't you think it's time Guiness went to a real home of his own?
Yoda (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Yoda (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, male
Yoda is 5 1/2 years old and came to us as a feral born Innisfil stray. He is super friendly and follows you around for pets. For whatever reason, Yoda likes to be called "boyfriend", so you will have to humour him when you meet our boy. Yoda doesn't like to be picked up, but his sweet disposition makes up for that. Why not give this sweetheart a chance at a home? FYI, Yoda is sweet on Shauna. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they were adopted TOGETHER?
Rose (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Rose (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, female
Rose is 6 years old and is a feral born rescue. When we first got her, she wouldn't let anyone near her. Now, however, Rose will rub up against you and get herself into the cutest positions when you pet her. She still isn't used to being picked up, but does that really matter? Rose is sweet and has lots of love to share.
Morris (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Morris (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Orange, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Morris is a local stray who is a little over 2 years of age. He is a pale orange tabby with just a bit of white. Morris is quite friendly, happily welcoming pets and ear scratches. He was out on the streets and got a little roughed up, but Morris is doing well now. He would make a wonderful companion. Morris can be aggressive with young children, however, because of all of their activity, so it would be best if Morris were in a home with teens or just adults. He is microchipped.
Duffy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Duffy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Poor Duffy - he was literally dumped inside our shelter door in his carrier by his former owner. Duffy is a gentle, appreciative, 2 year old boy who purrs happily when you pay attention to him. He loves to be petted and arches his back with pleasure. You can also pick up Duffy, though he is nervous if he doesn't know you very well. Once you look into Duffy's amber eyes, he will win your heart, guaranteed. Be sure to meet this handsome fellow. Duffy is totally smitten with Virginia and keeps climbing into her cage to snuggle up with her. We would like Duffy and Virginia to be ADOPTED TOGETHER. Duffy is microchipped.
Dallas (in foster care but available for adoption)Dallas (in foster care but available for adoption) - Black and White, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, male
Dallas is a 5 3/4 year old baby. He loves to be loved and soaks it all up and asks for more. You can pet him, scratch his ears, pick him up . . . Dallas will be a very happy boy who purrs his thanks. He was a Georgina stray that was never claimed or adopted. Let's find this fine cat a home in the Barrie area, ok? You will have an incredible fur companion for life!
Kismet (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Kismet (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black and White, 5 to 10 years, Medium hair, female
Kismet is 7 3/4 years old and is Shauna's mother. The two of them and Kismet's hubby used to hang out behind a fish and chips restaurant in Angus. We had a donation box there and, one day, received a call asking if we would take the fur family. We did. Kismet's hubby has passed on, but Kismet is still going strong. She is still rather shy, but she will let you pet her. Kismet gets along well with other cats. Kismet deserves a home where she can feel like the most important cat in the world. How about YOUR home?
Sally (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Sally (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, female
Sally is 6 years of age. No one seems to remember her history, but she doesn't mind. Sally is very shy and tends to keep to herself. If you seek her out, you CAN pet her and even brush her. Sally is a gentle, quiet girl who would like a quiet, loving home. She hopes you won't mind that she doesn't like being picked up, but she promises to be a good girl. What do you think?
Fang (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Fang (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, male
Fang is 7 3/4 years old and has been with us for most of his life. He looks like he would be mean, but he is actually a very sweet boy. He loves pets and ear scratches and, though he likes to perch as high as possible, he doesn't like being picked up. Don't let his look fool you. Fang would make a gentle companion. He will require a fair bit of time, patience and love however, in order to adjust to a home.
Silver (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Silver (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female
Silver is 3 3/4 years old and has had a full mouth extraction. That doesn't stop her from enjoying her food or life in general though. Silver is a sweet, gentle girl. She adores being petted and having her ears scratched, but she is afraid of being picked up. Perhaps in a home where she is lavished with one-on-one attention, that might change. Are YOU up to the challenge? Silver is good with other cats and MUST be adopted WITH another of our cats in order to have a smooth transition for her to her forever home.
Gaston (at shelter on Hart  Dr., Barrie)Gaston (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Gaston is a 4 year old character. He loves attention and will natter away at you until you give him some. He is from a private London rescue (private because people keep dropping off unwanted cats on this woman's property and a rescue because she couldn't bear to see them get hurt so brought them all inside)where he would follow the owner around until she stopped whatever she was doing and gave him some loving. Yes, Gaston is a major sucky baby! Once you are seated, he is in your lap for a long, comfy stay. Gaston MUST BE ADOPTED WITH his brother, Tristan, as he is the second eye for Tristan. Gaston is microchipped.
Tristan (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Tristan (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 1 to 5 years, Short hair,
Tristan is 4 years old and he only has one eye. The other burst when he was a baby and had to be removed. He functions just fine, especially because his brother, Gaston, helps him. Tristan is gentle and very affectionate. He wants to be in your lap and/or be on the receiving end of pets as often as possible. In fact, he used to follow his owner around the house until she would stop and give him attention. Tristan is from a private London rescue (private because it is run out of a woman's home and a rescue because she couldn't bear to have unwanted, dropped off cats get hurt, so brought them all inside). She needed our help to rehome some of her babies. Tristan MUST BE ADOPTED WITH his brother, Gaston. Tristan is microchipped.
Sammy (at shelter on Hart Dr., BarrieSammy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie - Tabby, 10 to 15 years, Short hair, male
If you are looking for a gentle, quiet boy who enjoys lots of pets and cuddles, Sammy is the cat for you. He is 14 years old and has been with us since he was a kitten. A woman offered to give us a large donation IF we agreed to take all 20 of her cats. We took her babies; most were old and passed away. Sammy is one of the last ones and we would love to see him end his days in a loving home where attention was lavished on him. Are YOU able to offer Sammy what he deserves?
Jetti (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Jetti (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female
Jetti is just a little thing, but she has a big heart and a playful personality. She is 1 1/2 years old and is a feral born rescue. She found herself living in a shed with an assortment of other cats. No real socialization was attempted, until her owner was convinced to surrender her and the other cats to us. Since then, Jetti has learned to trust people, but she is still nervous about being picked up. Once she gets into the right home with loving people, she will likely continue to blossom. Is YOUR home the right one?
Lillie (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Lillie (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 5 to 10 years, Long hair, female
Lillie is 6 1/4 years old and has lived most of her life with us. She was originally a feral cat, but has slowly and steadily progressed. Lillie is now very friendly and loves to be petted. She will look up at you with her big eyes with a plea to give her some love. We wouldn't be at all surprised if she turned into a lap cat once she finds the right home. You can pick Lillie up, but not for long - yet. Let's get this little lady out of our shelter and into a home. How about YOURS?
Candy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Candy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 10 to 15 years, Short hair, female
Candy is 13 3/4 years old and has a beautiful light tabby coat with orange highlights. She came to us years ago as an unwanted cat. How sad for her! Candy loves receiving attention, and I swear she smiles when you pet her or scratch her ears. She is timid about being picked up, but we feel that she can share a lot of love without having to be held. Likely, once in a home after all of these years, she might well make her way into your lap - once she feels safe and totally trusts you. What about it? Can you give Candy a home for her remaining years? She definitely deserves one.
Shelby (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Shelby (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tortoise Shell, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, female
Shelby is a shy 6 1/2 year old dilute Torti that we have had her for several years. Once Shelby gets to know you, she will let you pet her. Don't be surprised if she runs away the first time you meet her though. She lacks self-confidence, but with the love and patience of the right person(s), Shelby has the potential to become more courageous. Shelby has had a full mouth extraction, but she still eats her fair share of food. Why not consider bringing Shelby home? It would be best for Shelby if she were adopted WITH another of our cats, OR if she went to a home that already has a friendly cat.
Santana (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Santana (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Orange, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female
Santana is 5 years old and is a big girl - more to love, right? She was surrendered by her owner when it became impossible to care for her any longer. Santana was originally adopted from Kijiji when she was about 1 year old. Her mom has tried to find a home for Santana but has been unsuccessful. She says that Santana is very loving and playful. Like most cats, she will scratch when she is afraid of a situation or person. Her owner feels she would be best as the only pet in a home that has no small children. Can you help Santana by providing a loving home for her?
Hope (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Hope (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tortoise Shell, 5 to 10 years, Medium hair, female
Hope is a little over 8 years old and has been with us a long time. No one is quite sure of her past, but rumour has it that she was a feral born rescue. Hope may not like to be picked up, but does she ever love to be petted. You no sooner touch her than her engine revs up and she is using your hand to ensure that all her favourite spots are rubbed. Hope will twist her head from side to side and move her body around for best petting vantage points! She is a beauty and just needs the right, patient person to bring even more loving and confidence out of her little body. At her age, Hope deserves to have the hope of a forever home. Let's turn that hope into a reality, ok?
Gizmo (in foster care but available for adoption)Gizmo (in foster care but available for adoption) - Black, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Gizmo was found wandering in Lackey's Bush. Though posted, no one claimed this 2 year old handsome boy, something that shocks us. Gizmo is ultra friendly, coming right up to the cage door to be petted and/or held. And when he is laying down and you pet him, Gizmo gets himself into the cutest positions. He totally melts your heart. Be sure to see him soon, as he won't last long. Gizmo is microchipped.
Speedy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Speedy (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Special Breeds, 10 to 15 years, Long hair, female
Speedy is a beautiful, 11 year old Maine Coon. Her owner had to surrender her due to a family member moving in - it was very difficult for her. Speedy is literally a lovebug. She wants to curl up in your lap for as long as you will allow and then sleep in the crook of your arm at night. Speedy is finding it totally unnerving being without her beloved owner. Let's try and get her into a home as soon as possible. She will love you with all of her heart. Speedy had to be shaved due to severe matting, so she apologizes for her current look. She asked me to post her normal look.
Tom (in foster care but available for adoption)Tom (in foster care but available for adoption) - Orange, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, male
Tom is 7 years old and he is a big boy. His elderly owner was hospitalized and will be unable to care for him if/when she returns home, so the family surrendered him. Poor Tom has never been away from his home, so he is quite bewildered. He can be petted once he trusts you and will sit on the couch beside you. He is NOT a lap though, nor does he like being picked up. Tom is definitely a "foodie" though and may, occasionally, growl in order to get a sample of what YOU are eating. Tom needs to be brushed or the fur on his back matts. The best time to brush him is when he is eating. Please consider giving this boy another home. He does NOT like other cats but he is alright with a quiet dog. Tom would be good with a senior or in a quiet home with no children.
Lexus (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Lexus (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black and White, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, male
Lexus is just a little over 5 years old, and he and his brothers, Tippit and Theo, were feral born rescues. Lexus was terrified of human touch when he was first left at our back door but, over the years that he has been with us, he has learned to trust people. This fellow loves to be petted now and have his chin scratched. He is still nervous about being picked up though. Why don't we reward his hard work with a forever home? We would like Lexus adopted with Tippit. Having a companion will make the transition much easier for both boys.
Tippit (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Tippit (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Black and White, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, male
Tippit is a little over 5 years of age and has been at our shelter with his brothers, Lexus and Theo, since they were left as kittens at our back door. Tippit was fearful of humans initially, but with the daily love and care shown to him from our volunteers, he is now at the point where he welcomes pets and ear scratches. Tippit still isn't happy about being picked up though. Why don't we reward Tippit's progress by adopting him out with his brother, Lexus? The two tend to hang out together, and their transition to a home would be so much easier for them if they were together. The boys deserve this chance. FYI, Tippit has always had a cloudy left eye, but he still sees well.
Bella (at shelter on Hart Dr. Barrie)Bella (at shelter on Hart Dr. Barrie) - Tortoise Shell, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female
Bella is 5 years old and is a feral born rescue. It has taken her all of this time to get to the point where she is ready for a forever home. At first, she was wild - no one could come near her. Now, however, Bella rubs back and forth against your legs, looking for some pets and ear scratches. It is wonderful to see how she has blossomed. Bella really deserves a loving home now. How about YOURS? She will require a fair bit of time, love and patience to adjust to a home, but she can do it with YOUR help.
Virginia (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Virginia (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Special Breeds, 1 to 5 years, Medium hair, female
Virgina is a 3 year old Exotic. She and two other Exotics were left in carriers outside our front door. Virginia was the most frightened of the three and very skittish. Now that she trusts us and knows that we love her, she is much more calm. Virginia is sweet and loves to be petted. She is a Diva though, so she likes to remain on the ground so that she can hold court with total dignity. Virgina is good with other cats but would probably prefer to be the only cat in your world. She can nip occasionally, so Virginia should be in a home with teens or just adults. Virginia is smitten with Duffy, so we would like them to be ADOPTED TOGETHER. Virgina is microchipped.
Stella (at shelter on Hart Dr. Barrie)Stella (at shelter on Hart Dr. Barrie) - Calico, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, female
Stella is 4 3/4 years old and was a feral born rescue. Like so many of our ferals, she wanted nothing to do with any of our volunteers for the longest while. Slowly, but surely however, that began to change. Stella realized that people wanted to help her, not hurt her. Now she will let you pet her but she is afraid of being picked up. Sudden movements and noises make her very skittish. Stella has the potential to blossom further; all she needs is the right home where she can be given the time to adjust. Perhaps YOUR home could be the right one for our beauty. Stella will have the most success if she is adopted WITH another of our cats, or if she goes to a home that already has a friendly cat.
Libby (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Libby (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, female
Libby is 5 1/2 years old and was a feral born rescue. Though she has come so far in her socialization, she is still quite shy. Libby needs to get to know you slowly, and then she will let you pet her. Don't expect to pick her up though - that frightens her. In the right home with the right person(s), Libby could develop so much more self-confidence. She could allow that beauty that is hidden deep within to surface. All she needs is someone to love her unconditionally and patiently give her the time she needs to adjust. We feel she will be worth the investment in time and love.

Thomas (at shelter on Dr., Barrie)Thomas (at shelter on Dr., Barrie) - White, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Thomas is 2 years old and he is deaf. His first home had young children who didn't understand that he couldn't hear them approaching and they ended up tormenting him. He was then adopted by a family who felt sorry for him, but he was so afraid of their young children that he got aggressive with them. Thomas is actually a sweet boy, but he needs a CALM home with NO young children. He would do well with a single person or a couple without children. Thomas loves to be petted, but it takes him a while to warm up to someone new. You must approach Thomas from the front after you have made eye contact with him. Let's show Thomas that there IS a right home for him where he doesn't need to try and defend himself. Perhaps YOUR home is the right one?
