These are our cats!
|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.
|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.
|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.
|Midnight (at shelter on Dr., Barrie) - Black, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male|
Midnight and his son, Patches, originated from Elliot Lake. They were surrendered to us recently, after their female owner passed away. Midnight is 4 years old and he is a lovebug. As soon as you approach his cage, he is on his feet and right there for you to pet him. Midnight rubs against you with delight and pushes hard against the door when you try to close it. If you want a cat who will want to be with you most of the time, Midnight is your boy. He is sweet and gentle. Midnight is microchipped.
|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.
