My story


Taking centre stage: David!

The late, great David Bowie once sang "Sometimes we get second chances and sometimes we never make it past the first." If our David (Meowie) could sing, he would tell you that he is definitely worth a second chance, and he's ready for the spotlight!

A gentle senior boy, David was rescued from the cold streets of Hamilton just before the holidays and, thankfully, found his way to warmer and safer conditions with us. Initially hesitant and afraid of his new environment, David has completely opened up in his foster home. Life in foster has given him the opportunity to connect with his inner kitten and he enjoys playing with toys; some of his favourites include the cat dancer, crinkle ball, ribbon wand, and laser pointer. A food-motivated boy, he will often drop by the kitchen to see what's cooking (and perhaps serenade you with his stellar vocals), and in the morning, he will jump up on his foster parents' bed to let them know it is time for breakfast.

This former scaredy-cat turned lap-cat absolutely loves being near his people and being brushed for hours, which causes him to purr (and drool) in contentment. He is a creature of habit and likes sunning himself by the window in the morning, napping in the afternoon, and playing in the evening.A quiet, adult-only home with no other pets would best support David as loud noises still startle him from time to time, and it takes him a while to warm up to strangers. Once he has warmed up to you, though, he'll love you for life!

David has FIV, which is a virus that weakens the immune system of a cat. It is not transmissible to humans or other species. Cats who have FIV can live just as long as other cats if they are properly cared for, with a good diet, indoor home, loving family, and vet checkups twice a year. David was recently diagnosed with stage 2 kidney disease which is managed with a special diet. David does not require medication at this time.

If you feel like your home is the right fit for a star like David, please consider giving this boy his second chance by completing an adoption application today.
The adoption fee for a single cat at EHS is $175. Take home an adult feline friend for your kitty and the adoption fee for the pair is $300! For kittens under six months of age, the adoption fee is $200...Or double your cuteness quotient and adopt two wee furballs for $350! If you mix and match (kitten plus cat), the adoption fee is $300. Each of our cats is spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, snap tested for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, and flea treated prior to adoption. Kittens are not spayed or neutered until 5 months of age, but the cost of spay/neuter will be covered as part of the adoption.
