Saving one cat will not change the world,
but surely for that one cat, the world will change forever. - Karen Davidson



URGENT NOTICE:

Due to an unprecedented demand (especially for kittens) we regret that we are unable to respond by phone to all of the applications we are currently receiving.

We are only able at this time to phone those applicants who have sent in an online adoption application where their criteria matches what the particular cat or kittens' needs are, and who can provide a vet reference.

We regret any inconvenience caused as we do our best to meet the overwhelming demand we are currently experiencing.

Please Note: we answer adoption requests giving priority to online applications rather than voice mail ones.
If we are unable to answer your phone calls it means that we are busy dealing with online applications.
We are unable to answer all calls because of time restraints.

Unfortunately, due to a high demand, we are unable to respond to requests on our phone line to surrender cats at this time.
Our foster homes are full, so if you wish to surrender your cat please submit an online application.

JOIN OUR FOSTER SUPPORT TEAM!!
Do you like (love) cats and kittens?
Do you have good people and writing skills?
If you answered yes to the above questions, you might want to consider being a part of our foster support team!

You must be able to talk to our foster parents in order to get to get a sense of what their cats / kittens are about, and be able to convey that in writing.
We need to know about their personalities, what kind of home they would do best in and any funny quirks the kitties might have so we can profile them in the best adoptable light on our web pages.

Good spelling and grammar skills are not only an asset, they are a must!!

If this sounds like something you'd like to take on, please fill out an application.

SIMBA URGENTLY NEEDS A FOSTER HOME!!!

Simba is a 4 year old male Ragdoll mix in dire need of a new family.

He was surrendered to a shelter north of the city because he doesn't get along with other animals... he's good with people though.

If you can foster Simba while he waits for a new home, please fill out a foster parent application.



PRIMROSE HAS A FOSTER HOME!!!

This beautiful young girl was found abandoned in a carrier out in the cold and taken to a shelter north of the city. 

There was a note attached to the crate saying that she was 8 months old and her people could no longer keep her, and that she needed another cat to play with.   

Primrose is very sweet and likes people, and loves to have lots of loving.

We would like to give Prim her best chance of finding a forever family (with a feline friend) but in order to do that, we need to get her in to one of our Abbey Cat foster homes.

Could that home be yours? To help us help Primrose, please fill out a foster parent application..

Cat Responsibility

We at Abbey Cats love to tell you about our adoptable cats and kittens, how they’re beautiful and playful and smart and cuddly and a wonderful addition to any home and family. But let me tell you a little bit about us - I mean, all of us. People domesticated cats 8000-9000 years ago. That means that although they still look a good bit like the original wild animal, they have long lost their connection with the wild, in fact millennia ago.  

Yes, a cat will kill and eat birds and rodents; that part of their essential nature has not been lost. Hounds will chase and kill a rabbit, horses will run for the sheer fun of it. Some things are hard wired. But hounds are not very likely to be left to fend for themselves outside, at least not in Canada. It is a sad reality that many cats are.
The perception that they “belong” out of doors, and even worse, that they can fend for themselves, is so pervasive and so wrong that it is heartbreaking. Outdoor cats are exposed to the dangers of cars, weather, predators, getting lost, disease, pregnancy, and aggression from other cats.
Abandoned, discarded, unwanted “strays” and ferals also face a slow death by starvation.
They are not able to fend for themselves. After 8000 years they have forgotten how. Can you blame them?

We invited cats to join us on our evolutionary journey to modern man. Now we have a collective responsibility to make good on our part of the deal. How? Be a responsible cat owner; keep your cats inside, care for them medically, physically and emotionally, protect them and love them. Spay and neuter your cats. When it comes time to adopt, adopt a rescue, give a kitty another chance, repair the damage done by past relationships and abandonment. Remember when you adopt kittens, adoption is for life. You will see those babies through the good and the bad, including the sick and the old.

Not sure you can afford a cat right now? You’re right, costs can be significant - quality food, litter, toys, spay and neuter surgery, medical costs, boarding. If the timing is not right, consider fostering instead, volunteer at your local shelter, cat sit for family and friends. Are you facing some uncertainties in your future? Serious illness, marital break-up, job loss? Provide for your cat; be responsible. Find a new home, with a firm commitment, in case you have to give your cat up. Arrange for its secure future, allowing you to concentrate on your own.

And - speak up if you suspect neglect or abuse. Be their voice, their advocate, their rescuer.

Cats have enriched our lives for so long, life without them is unimaginable. They feel the same about us. They love us, but they also need and depend on us.

It’s an awesome responsibility.
