Story
Leo is a 1.5 year old handsome male cat who was a medical surrender. He was suffering from a blockage and needed emergency medical care. He is indifferent to dogs and he is fine cats. He craves attention and does give small love nips when he first sees you after a period of being alone, but eventually he settles down, so a home with no small children is better suited for him. He loves people and snuggles and is a very playful boy. Leo must be on be on a prescription diet of Urinary SO for his lifetime to ensure he does not suffer another blockage. The cost is estimated at approx. $10+- a week, a 3.5 kg bag is about $60 and should last him about 6 weeks if following the feeding guidelines on the bag. Leo is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. If interested please send us an application- https://form.jotform.com/222805088235254 Or email- havenoftheheart1@gmail.com

Story
Bianca and Luigi are a bonded pair of 6 month old kittens. Bianca is an outgoing girl and will run up for affection. Luigi is timid and only gains confidence when in his sisters company, its for that reason we want to rehome them together. As a young kitten we know Luigi will come out of his shell once placed in the right home. We recommend no small children as not to startle him. Bianca is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Leo will be neutered at 7 months, is vaccinated and microchipped. If interested please send us an application- https://form.jotform.com/222805088235254 Or email- havenoftheheart1@gmail.com

Story
Caramel came to Abbey Cats with her sisters from an overcrowded home north of Toronto. Caramel is an adorable, friendly, and pretty kitten. She is often on the go exploring, jumping, and climbing. She is also always up for a wrestle or a chase of a toy. She will climb up on our bodies if we have a toy she wants, but she is also gentle and sweet as can be at the same time. Caramel leads the pack of kittens trying to escape the foster room and roam upstairs, but she is always sweet when we pick her up and take her back downstairs. Caramel loves human attention and being pet, but she often holds back if the other cats are on our laps at the moment. She prefers to wait for an empty lap where she will settle down and purr non-stop. She only stops purring if the lap gets overcrowded or she sees something she wants to play with. Caramel loves exploring and running around and is usually found sleeping curled next to one another kitten. Caramel needs to be adopted with one of her sisters, Creamsicle, Creme Brule, or Marshmallow. This cat needs to be adopted with a cat in the program or have another cat at home.

Story
Steed came to Abbey Cats with his two brothers from a shelter up north. He is a very sweet and cuddly boy. He loves to play with his siblings Draper and Gatsby and any other toys he finds around. He loves watching birds and squirrels on tv and will want to sample a piece of everything he sees you eat. Steed will need to be adopted with at least one of his brothers. He loves having friends around. The boys are very energetic so the home would not need to be quiet; they would just need a home where they can run around freely and not be left alone for too long as they love attention. Steed needs to be adopted with one of his brothers (Draper or Gatsby) or go to a home where there is a kitten of similar age and energy. Please bear in mind that it is against Abbey Cat policy to adopt a single kitten under the age of 6 months to a home without a kitten of similar age for company.

Story
Gatsby came to Abbey Cats with his brothers from a shelter up north. Gatsby is currently in a foster home with 4 people and loves all the attention he can get. He is the calmest out of the bunch but definitely is still very playful. He loves to wrestle with his siblings and his favourite toy is a squeaky mouse plushie. Gatsby and his brother Steed and Draper are very energetic and would need a home where they can easily run around, jump, and play with their toys. They do not necessarily need a quiet home, they would just need a home where they are not alone for long periods of time and where they can have attention focused on them. They are very curious and love to watch any activity they see you doing. Gatsby needs to be adopted with one of his brothers (Steed or Draper) or go to a home where there is a cat of similar age and energy. Please bear in mind that it is against Abbey Cat policy to adopt a single kitten under the age of 6 months to a home without a kitten of similar age for company.

Story
Draper and his two brothers Steed and Gatsby came to Abbey Cats from a shelter up north. He is the most playful out of the trio, and will not miss a single opportunity to run along and play with anything he finds around. He is a very sweet boy who will get all cuddly and warm when he gets tired from his parkour runs. He is currently in a foster home with 4 people. There are no kids but there is no doubt that he and his brothers would get along well with children and possibly other pets. They are very curious and the three of them are attached at the hip most of the time. Draper and his brothers need a home where they can easily run around. They are very energetic and like having people around so they would need a home where they are not left alone very often. They might get along with other animals assuming from how they act with each other and people. Draper needs to be adopted with one of his brothers (Steed or Gatsby) or to a home where there is a kitty of similar age and energy. Please bear in mind that it is against Abbey Cat policy to adopt a single kitten under the age of 6 months to a home without a kitten of similar age for company.
