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


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.


****At this time we are looking for fosters who have experience looking after PREGNANT cats and NURSING moms!!****

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.


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!! 


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.

    It's kitten season and that means that there's going to be a great need for foster homes for little families like this one which was recently rescued from outside.
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 away from predators and harsh environmental elements.  

Abbey Cats would love to be able to help them all, but we can't do it without  our awesome volunteer foster parents!!
We have no shelter and rely exclusively on volunteer foster homes to care for our cats while they await placement in permanent homes.
Every time a new foster place is created through adoption or the recruitment of a new volunteer foster parent, a cat or kitten can be rescued from being euthanized or dying of exposure.

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!

If you are unable to foster at this time but would still like to help us help the cats and kittens who come in to our care, donations are always gratefully accepted to help cover ongoing expenses for kitten formula, food, spaying and neutering (when age appropriate).
No amount is too small to make a big difference!!

 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.


Geoffrey Charles is currently in a shelter north of the city after the family who found him as a young kitten could not find a home for him, or keep him themselves.

He's friendly and good with cats, but not a fan of dogs.

if you have room in your heart and your home for this young man please fill out an application to foster.


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.

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.



Abbey Cats is currently in the process of expanding our volunteer team, and we are seeking cat lovers to join!

Have a skill set or extra time you can lend to the organization? We want to hear from you!

We desperately need a foster parent coordinator, drivers, and adoption counsellors 

If you are able to help, please fill out an application today!!

We also have several leadership positions open - please indicate in your application if this is of interest to you.
