These are our cats!

Gaston (At shelter on Hart Dr. Barrie)Gaston (At shelter on Hart Dr. Barrie) - Black and White, 1 to 5 years, Short hair, male
Gaston is a sweet and shy 2 year old boy who has been steadily coming out of his shell and learning to accept petting and loving - When he first arrived at our door after he was rescued from a high kill shelter in Montreal, he was very unsure of people... No doubt this black and white beauty had a hard past. Gaston can still find himself a little overwhelmed and will back up if you come at him too quickly or too loudly, but all he requires is a gentle touch and some patience before that little purr of his gets going (and he really does love is chin and neck rubbed, he will push in to you for more!). He definitely wants attention and has even learned how to sneak in out of the corner of your eye and wait for you to notice him! We are sure that once he finds somebody who sees all of his special qualities, he will blossom even more in a home!
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 3/4 year old stray who was brought in to us, but whose owners were found before he was adopted out. Sadly, his owners surrendered him to us several months later because he was having a problem consistently using his litter box. We had him checked, and the poor boy had crystals. Skrinkle was put on a urinary kibble and, when he was checked this week, there were NO CRYSTALS. Skrinkle has been faithfully using a covered litter box for at least a month now, so . . . Skrinkle is 100% ready to be adopted! 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?
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 1/2 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. She has NEVER experienced a real home. Isn't it time that Rose does?!
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.
Emma (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie)Emma (at shelter on Hart Dr., Barrie) - Tabby, 5 to 10 years, Short hair, female
Emma is a feral born rescue who is just shy of her sixth birthday. She is a gentle, shy girl who takes a bit of coaxing before she will warm up to you, but once you get your hands on her chubby body she turns into cat putty! In the right home, with the right people who let her know that she is safe and loved, this gem's true colours will shine through strong. Emma is definitely worth the effort and patience, and she is also fantastic with other cats!
