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.



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

Over the next few weeks / months, there will be many pregnant cats and orphaned kittens needing our help, and we cannot do it without your assistance.

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.

FOSTER HOMES URGENTLY NEEDED!!

    
Can you help these 5 week old kittens?
They were found abandoned beside a dumpster, orphaned and alone.
They are currently in a shelter but that is not an ideal place to wait for a permanent home!
Abbey Cats would like to help them, but we can't do it without you.
Please fill out a foster parent application... time is of the essence!!



CATS AND KITTENS URGENTLY NEED FOSTER HOMES!!

We need your help!
Abbey Cats has been asked to help out a shelter north of the city, but we need foster homes in order to do so!
There has been no interest in adoption of these cats and kittens at their current shelter and we are hoping that by bringing them in to our foster homes they will have a better chance at finding permanent homes.

     
         
Looking for placement are:
  1 year old spayed female; 1 year old male (not neutered); 2 black siblings (male and female) approx. 11 - 12 weeks old; a 10 month old black and white female (not spayed); an 8 week old black and white kitten

If you have room in your heart and your home to foster and work with these cats / kittens and get them ready for permanent homes, please fill out foster parent application.


If you would like to join our team, we are always looking for eager and passionate volunteers to lend a hand.

Donations to help with the cost of food, spay, neuter and other medical expenses are always welcome and gratefully accepted.


BEATRICE HAS GIVEN BIRTH!!

    

Beatrice welcomed 7 beautiful kittens into this world on July 11, 2021.
It's much too early to know their sexes or give them names but stay tuned for updates and when they will be available for adoption.

Beatrice was rescued from an overcrowded shelter and thanks to Abbey Cats, able to have her babies in a safe, warm and loving environment.

While Beatrice is now enjoying life out of a shelter, there are many more cats and kittens in need and we are always looking for knowledgeable foster parents who would love to have the very rewarding experience of helping expectant moms and kittens by giving shelter, attention and loving care while watching the babies grow and develop into their own personalities.

If you have what it takes to dedicate the time and energy to cats and kittens in to your home  and prepare them for adoption, please fill out a foster parent application.

If you are unable to foster, but would like to help Abbey Cats help cats like Beatrice, please consider making a donation... all funds received go directly to the care of the cats and kittens in our foster homes... and no amount is too small to make a big difference.
We couldn't do what we do without the help of like minded and generous people like yourselves.


HOLLY WILL SOON BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!!

  Holly has just recently entered an Abbey Cat foster home and will ready for adoption after a brief assessment period.

She's a beautiful, white, lilac Birman cross, 5 years old and spayed.

Please watch our "Available Cats" page in the next few days for more information.


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.
