Misha is a teddy-bear of a cat who loves to be cuddled and caressed. A very soft, sweet-natured and gentle 'bear'. He is, at present, not very active and seems to want to be loved & hugged more than anything else. Misha is so gentle that, when other more aggressive, bullyish males hit him forcefully and make him lose his balance, he will not even react and just lie there without moving. He loves to be petted and allows himself to be picked up in one's arms. The only sign he gives to show that he may not appreciate this, is he will squeak softly like a small 'squishy' toy. Misha has gone through rough times in his rather short life and has never known what it is like to be loved, cared for or to play & have fun, According to the neighbours where he was found past Mirabel, he had been abandonned when his owners moved away in the summer of 2015. He struggled to survive for months but  by the winter his condition had worsened and it didn't seem he would not make it to the spring, just like his best buddy, who died tragically & sadly of pneumonia  and was found lifeless one morning beside poor Misha. It looked as though Misha was going to probably end up in the same way as his four-legged friend who had also been abandonned. Fortunately for Misha, someone took pity on him and rescued him, not wishing to see another dead cat. Misha was indeed in bad shape when rescued.  He was sick with  a cold, very badly matted, and not neutered. After being taken care of by the vet he made a good recovery. He has become extremely affectionate and is very grateful at having been rescued and taken off the streets. Given his tough street life, it is surprising how gentle and sweet he is. Now that he is safe & secure all Misha wants is to be cuddled and loved and to love back. Perhaps, once he has had a lot of affection and ' filled up' on love, he will move onto being playful and having fun. For now this gentle fellow only wants to be loved and to feel secure. If you are ready to have this adorable and sweet 'teddy bear ' of a cat to love and please contact us. He will repay you with so much love and gratitude, many times over.

Misha est un chat déguisé en « ours en peluche » qui aime être câliné et caressé. Il est très doux, d’un naturel gentil 'ours'. Il est, à l'heure actuelle, pas très actif et semble vouloir être aimé plus que toute autre chose. Misha est si doux que, lorsque les autres chats, plus dominants et agressifs l'ont frappé avec force au point de lui faire perdre son équilibre, il ne réagit même pas et reste là sans bouger. Il aime se faire caresser et être tenu dans les bras. Le seul signe qu'il donnera lors d’une situation qu’il n’aime pas, sera un petit « squeak » tout doux, comme un petit jouet 'spongieux'. Misha a traversé des moments difficiles dans sa courte vie et n'a jamais connu ce que c’est d’être aimé et dorloté ou encore de jouer et d'avoir du plaisir, Selon les voisins où il a été trouvé (plus loin que Mirabel), il avait été abandonné par ses propriétaires à la fin de l’été 2015. Il a lutté pour survivre pendant des mois, mais son état avait vraiment empiré avec l’arrivé de l’hiver et du froid. Il ne semblait pas pouvoir survivre jusqu’au printemps. D’ailleurs, son meilleur ami est tragiquement mort d'une pneumonie et a été retrouvé sans vie un matin à côté pauvre Misha. Il semblait que Misha allait finir probablement de la même façon qui avait lui aussi été abandonné. Heureusement, quelqu'un a eu pitié de Misha et l'a sauvé, ne voulant pas le voir mourir à son tour. Misha était effectivement en très mauvais état lorsqu'il a été secouru. Il était malade avec un rhume, sa belle fourrure n’était que des noeuds, et il n’était pas castré. Après avoir été pris en charge par le vétérinaire, il a bien récupéré. Il est devenu extrêmement affectueux et très reconnaissant d'avoir été sauvé. Étant donné sa vie de errance difficile, il est surprenant de voir combien doux et gentil il est. Maintenant qu'il se sait en sécurité, tout ce que veux Misha est d'être câliné, aimé et aimer en retour. Peut-être, une fois qu'il a eu beaucoup d'affection sera 'rempli' par l'amour, il va passer à être ludique et jouer pour s’amuser. Pour l'instant, ce doux grand garcon ne veut être aimé et se sentir en sécurité. Si vous êtes prêt à avoir cette adorable et doux 'ours en peluche' et lui donner plein d'amour, s'il vous plaît nous contacter. Il vous remboursera avec tant d'amour et de reconnaissance au centuple.

  • 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.
