My name is Chessie, I am very pretty and not a big girl. Although I was born outside in an alley with my sister Cerise and my two brothers Harry and Harley, I have lived inside a foster home with my family since I was around four months old. In fact, I still live together with my brothers, sister and mother with whom I am very attached. We know we are 'family' and we tend to spend a lot of time with each other. We feel totally secure this way and we all love our mother soooo much. She still treats us like babies by making sure we are ok. She enjoys it a lot when we go to cuddle and sleep beside her and she makes sure to let us know by hugging and kissing us. While my two brothers are super affectionate, playful and sociable, my sister and I are reserved and timid. I guess we are 'mommy's girls' and less outgoing . We have always had each other and never had the need to connect with anyone else (including people). You could say we, unlike our brothers, we are not that relaxed with people . In fact, until quite recently we were not comfortable when humans touched us. However, something kind of strange and wonderful happened, and we now,  not only permit people to touch us, but actually like it! I used to run away but now I wait and want to be petted and enjoy this more and more. My sister Cerise is still not as ok with this as me, although she is more comfortable with being touched than she used to be. She needs more time to catch up to me. I do realize now that it would be very nice to have a forever home where I would have many more opportunities to be caressed and receive the love and protection from people too. How about adopting pretty me?!

Mon nom est Chessie, je suis très jolie et pas grosse. Bien que je sois née à l'extérieur dans une allée avec ma sœur Cerise et mes deux frères Harry et Harley, j'ai vécu dans une famille d'accueil avec ma famille depuis l'âge de quatre mois environ. En fait, je vis toujours avec mes frères, ma sœur et notre mère avec qui je suis très attachée. Nous savons que nous sommes une «famille» et nous avons tendance à passer beaucoup de temps ensemble. Nous nous sentons totalement sécurisé de cette façon et nous aimons tous tellllement notre mère. Elle nous traite encore comme des bébés en s’assurant que nous sommes bien. Elle aime beaucoup quand nous allons la caresser et dormir à côté d'elle. Elle fait en sorte de nous le faire savoir par des étreintes et des embrassades. Alors que mes deux frères sont super affectueux, ludiques et sociables, ma sœur et moi sommes réservées et timides. Je suppose que nous sommes des «filles à leur maman ». Nous avons toujours eu l’une pour l'autre une grande affection et n’avons jamais eu le besoin de se connecter avec d'autres. Contrairement à nos frères, nous ne sommes pas super-confortable avec les gens. En fait, jusqu'à tout récemment, nous n’étions pas à l'aise quand les humains nous touchaient. Cependant, quelque chose un peu étrange et merveilleux est récemment arrivé, désormais non seulement nous permettons aux gens de nous toucher, mais en plus nous aimons ca! J’avais l'habitude de fuir, mais maintenant j’aime bien me faire caresser et en profiter de plus en plus. Ma sœur Cerise n’est toujours pas aussi à l’aise que moi, même elle fait de plus en plus de progrès. Elle a juste besoin d’un peu plus de temps. Je me rends compte maintenant que ce serait très agréable d'avoir une maison pour toujours où j'aurais beaucoup plus de possibilités d'être caressés et recevoir de l'amour et de la protection des personnes aussi. Que diriez-vous de m’adopter ?!

About Animal Rescue Network/Reseau Secours Animal

About Our Rescue Group...

The Animal Rescue Network's mission is to bring about a day when no unwanted animals are destroyed in shelters or pounds, and when every cat and dog can be ensured a happy life in a good home.

We are the largest no-kill shelter in Quebec, run entirely by volunteers. We receive no funding of any kind and rely entirely on private donations to sustain and care for all the animals at our shelter.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold weekly adoption clinics at pet supply stores throughout the Montreal area, and the South Shore to find permanent homes for our cats and dogs.
We'd love to meet you at our next adoption clinic!

At our last adoption clinic, we had 5 cats adopted!

Income tax receipts will be issued for donations of 10$ or more. Please include your complete contact information so that we know where to send the receipt(s).
    If you don't want to donate cash but would like to help out nonetheless, check out our cats' wish list here.
  • Our Adoption Process...

    All new adoption homes are carefully screened to determine if they are suitable. There is an adoption fee that includes the sterilization, initial vaccination of every animal, testing for FIV and FeLV of all cats at the shelter, and a 21 days trial period. A contract is always signed between the ARN and the adopter for their protection. A follow-up by an ARN adoption coordinator is often done either by telephone or by visit, and we also offer help/cousel for the life of the cat.
