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.



KITTEN SEASON IS HERE
AND WE ARE LOOKING FOR FOSTER FAMILIES!!

If you are have experience looking after PREGNANT cats and NURSING moms and are able to foster, please fill out an application

If you are unable to foster at this time but would still like to help us with these little families, please consider making a donation...  no amount is too small to make a big difference.


VIOLET NEEDS A FOSTER HOME ASAP!!!

Little Violet has been bounced around quite a bit in her short life.

She is in her current home after having been given up when her previous family got a dog.... the dog was not happy about sharing its space with a cat.

Now she's looking at being rehomed again because there is a young child in the home who wants to play a little too roughly with her.

Violet is around 7 months young, really curious and well behaved around children and loves to be around all people.

Can you provide a foster home for her where she will be loved and respected and readied for a forever family?
Apply here if you're able to give this beautiful young lady a place to chill until she finds an adoptive home.
   

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!!!     
***PLEASE NOTE... THE KITTENS WILL BE RE-HOMED WHEN THEY ARE 8 WEEKS OLD***

Camrose and her two kittens Belvedere and Sanderson were recently rescued from the cold outdoors and taken in to one of our foster homes.

They have been receiving lots of  human interaction, love and good food and will be ready for permanent homes soon.

The boys who are almost identical twins, must be adopted together.
They are now posted on the kitten page and we are accepting applications.


   
    
Luckily this little family was found in time before they succumbed to the weather or predators..
It's kitten season and we are starting to get calls from people who are finding moms and kittens and orphaned babies in their back yards and want them to have a safe place inside.

Abbey Cats would love to be able to help them all, but we can't do it without  our awesome volunteer foster parents!!


Do you have room in your heart and your home to be an Abbey Cat foster parent?
If the answer is yes, please fill out an application.... we can't do what we do without YOU!


 
COMING SOON!!
RECENTLY RESCUED ROSALIE AND JAMES BOND!!

            
  Rosalie
female - around 5 months old
  James Bond
male - around 8 months old  
Rosalie and James Bond have been transferred to the same foster home from a shelter north of the city.  
Having just arrived from the shelter last night, the kittens will need a bit of adjustment time for their foster family to get to know their personalities...
We do know that both are really sweet and loving and would benefit from having the company of another same aged cat / kitten in their adoptive home.
Keep an eye out for their posting on our available kitten page soon!! 


RECENTLY RESCUED PHILANDRA AND HER KITTENS 
HAVE SETTLED IN TO FOSTER CARE!!

This little family was rescued from under a deck north of the city when the kittens were around 4 weeks old.

All have thrived since being transferred from the shelter to their Abbey Cat Foster home and the kittens will soon be available for adoption... 

Let us introduce you to the five little cuties who soon be ready for forever homes. When they are old enough, they will be placed on our available kitten page.

CAN GERSHWIN BUNK WITH YOU FOR A WHILE?
FOSTER HOME FOUND AND SOON AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!
 Gershwin was surrendered to a shelter north of the city by a family who no longer had time for him.

This sweet boy is upset being in the shelter, but is just starting to come out of his hammock to check out what's going on around him.

He loves snuggles, is good with children and would fit in to just about any home.

Can you offer him temporary digs until he finds his forever family? Apply to foster here.


THE SITUATION UNFOLDING IN THE UKRAINE IS HEARTBREAKING!!

Humane Society International's  Animal Rescue Team and country office staff are on the ground in Europe, helping Ukrainian refugees fleeing the conflict with their beloved pets by providing funding and supplies such as pet food, collars, leads, toys, treats and water bowls, as well as veterinary care. 
Please consider making a donation to support their emergency response for Ukraine and other lifesaving efforts worldwide.

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.
