Important Note

Van Gogh (foster care) is best friends with Loki (foster care). Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Van Gogh (A29392842) and Loki (A29262704) aren't from the same litter, but that hasn't stopped them from being best friends. These two are everything you want in a kitten: they're rambunctious, playful, obsessed with catnip, snuggle with you in bed, and never stop entertaining. In short, they play hard and nap hard. These two do have pretty distinct personalities that balance each other out very well.

We got Loki as a 5-6 week old kitten who was barely ready to eat wet food on his own. He's grown up so much since those first weeks and is incredibly social with other cats, but more shy around humans. He loves sneaking into bed when people are already sleeping, but really likes to spend his time with his own kind. His favourite thing in the world is catnip, so be ready to shower him in it!

Van Gogh was scooped up from the shelter at about 3 months of age. He, like Loki, loves other cats, but REALLY loves getting attention from people. He will gladly nap in someone's lap and loves being pet. We think he was taken away from his mother too soon because he actually will suckle on our fingers and ears when he's feeling especially cozy! Van Gogh has the added bonus of coming with with 7 extra toes and half a missing ear.

These two complement each other so well that we're only looking to adopt them out together. They've been absolutely wonderful additions to our home and we know they'll make another family so happy. Both of them are neutured, up to date with vaccinations, microchipped, and ready to go! If you're interested in meeting them, please email me at

Act quickly to adopt Van Gogh (foster care). Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
