Fearful: needs calm and patience. For the expert adopter.
In May of 2008, when Watson was a kitten, the Refuge rescued him from a crack house. He was terrified. For a long time, his foster family thought he was deaf. However, little by little, they discovered that he can in fact hear, but that he shows signs of autism (inability to communicate with the outside world in the same manner as other cats). He has spent a number of years living in his own little world because other living things frighten him so much. All the same, he has made progress. He has come to trust the other cats of the household, but hasn't yet learned to trust humans. He is trying to break free from the isolation he has been living in and is becoming more curious about his environment. There is hope. A calm adoptive family would do him a world of good.
Rescue Group Info...
We are a non-profit organization founded in 1999 and run by a network of volunteers. Our mission is to rescue abandoned cats, to promote ahd importance of sterilization and to raise public awareness of the problems of abandoned animals.
We hold adoption days every other Sunday at the Marcel-Giroux community center at 4501 Bannantyne Street in Verdun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The next adoption days are:
July 8, 2012 July 22, 2012

September 9 & 23, 2012
October 14 & 28, 2012
November 11 & 25, 2012
December 9 & 16, 2012
All our cats are in foster homes and people who wish to adopt one can make an appointment to visit the cat at the home or come to the adoption days. All cats have been seen by a veterinarian, vaccinated and sterilized. The fee is $160 and includes sterilization of kittens when they reach five to six months of age. Adopting families sign a contract and if they already have other cats, these cats must be sterilized.
We serve Verdun and surrounding areas such as Ville- Emard, Côte St- Paul, St- Henri, Pointe St-Charles, Lasalle and Lachine.
