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

***We regret that due to a high volume of calls, we are unable reply to those applicants who ask for only one kitten and have no kittens at home.*** 

***Because of the high volume of interest that we are getting, we process online applications for kittens first and we may not get to telephone enquiries either in a timely fashion or perhaps at all***



Angelina, a stunning flame-point Persian Cross, was picked up from the streets by Animal Services filthy, starving and desperate.
Looking at
this 2 year old beauty, they thought the anxious family would be on their doorstep within hours, happy to take Angelina home. But no
one came.

We can only speculate how Angelina arrived on the mean streets, and why no one is looking for her. Was she an “outdoor cat” sentenced to make her way through the countless dangers of cars and coyotes and losing her way home?
Was she a breeder, enduring
pregnancy after pregnancy and then dumped when she became ill?
Or cruelly, was she a loved house cat discarded in the local park
when the vet bills started to appear?

Angelina, wasn’t just starving, she was ill. The animal shelter soon found the problem: IBD, an inflammatory bowel condition fairly common in people too.
Now on anti-inflammatory medication, antacids and a gentle gastric diet, Angelina is thriving.
She is eating
with gusto and is gaining weight and grooming her beautiful coat again.

Angelina is sweet and loving and trusting. She has been through more in her two short years than we will ever know.
That’s all in the
past for this little girl who has been treated like a movie star at the shelter, and who gives purrs and kisses instead of autographs for everyone who stops to admire her.
Angelina is looking for a hero, someone who can give her a home where she is safe and loved and

healthy for the rest of her days.

If you would like to make Angelina a part of your family,please fill out a foster parent application today!!


Life is hard.
We at Abbey Cats hear over and over the tragic stories our cats carry with them.
But most of these cats have had in the past a human, and it’s important to remember that life can be hard for them too.

Little Biba is pretty and gentle and quiet. Looking at her face, her carefully groomed coat and her bright, intelligent eyes you would never guess the years of hope and abandonment that went before.
Biba’s owner should never have had a cat. But maybe Biba is the
only one who loved her, maybe cuddling with Biba was her best de-stressor in a chaotic life.
When it all got too much, when she lost
her home or her freedom or the basic amount of money they both needed to eat, she dropped Biba at the animal shelter. Over and over.

When things got marginally better she came back for Biba, but they both knew it was going to happen again. Finally Biba arrived
at the right shelter and the caring and perceptive staff asked the owner to surrender her, so that Biba could have a chance at a life that owner could never give her.

Cats have a long memory. Biba will never forget those grim trips to the shelter, but she remembers the love in between.
Little surprise
Biba likes all humans and doesn’t like other cats.
Gradually in a new, stable and loving home Biba will realize she’s there to stay, that
pets are for life and that both pets and their humans benefit enormously from our relationships.

If you would like to offer Biba a new home foster or permanent, please fill out an application today!!


Mello has just been transferred to an Abbey Cat foster home from a shelter where he was not doing well.. he was very stressed out by the other cats there  and having a miserable time.

He is 2 years old, neutered and settling in nicely and will soon be available for adoption...

Please check our available cats page.... we'll post him there when he's ready for his permanent home.


River is a 3 year old neutered male who, through no fault of his own, is looking for a new home.
River is a healthy, normal cat. Some would say River is pretty typical in all things cat.
He loves to play. He loves his ball. He loves treats. He loves being with his humans.
He loves to cuddle, snuggle, canoodle. He loves belly rubs and ear scratches.
He purrs like a fiend.
He sleeps like there’s no tomorrow.
He can go floppy like a pyjama bag.
He’s sort of like a cat stereotype.

Unfortunately for River, he has one other cat stereotype - he hates dogs.
He hates the look of dogs, the smell of dogs, the sounds of dogs, the way dogs walk, the way dogs look at him, the sheer dogginess of dogs. And he’s afraid of dogs.

He’s so scared he hides in the basement.
This is a problem because River lives with two dogs.
His humans have to separate them, and that leaves him alone and miserable most of the time.
When the dogs go out for their walks, he comes out and enjoys his time with the humans and the other cat.
But mostly he hides in the basement.

He wants his humans to know he’s unhappy so he pees where he knows he shouldn’t.
His vet says he’s not ill, just stressed.
No one knows why River is so scared of dogs, since he’s lived in this home since he was a baby.
But his humans love him and want him to be happy, so they’re giving him up.
River is fine with other cats; we don’t know how he is with kids.
He needs a quiet home with - you guessed it - no dogs.

If you are interested in giving River a new home where he will feel safe and loved, please fill out an adoption application today!


Lulu has gone through a lot of change during the past year of her life, which has caused her to be very nervous.
When she first arrived at her current foster home, she hid for the first week.
Since then she has made a lot of progress and now snuggles with her foster mum and the other cat in the home.
Although she has made great strides and loves to have her chin scratched, she still needs a lot of patience and is still very nervous about wandering during the daytime.

Lulu has recently discovered that she loves toys.

She prefers to play cautiously with a wand toy from under the couch with her foster mom during the day, but if her mom is in bed she becomes much more adventurous and will play with toys all over the home.

Lulu gets along well with the other cat in the home, and will often rub up against her and likes to be groomed by her. As long as she is given a safe, quiet space to adjust and is introduced to the new cat slowly, we think she could do well with another (friendly) cat.

The key to winning Lulu over and getting her affection is food. She loves food! She knows the sound of a can opener and as soon as she hears it she begins to meow and follows her foster mum and rubs against her legs begging her to hurry up.

Lulu needs a quiet, calm home, with a room where she can adjust and fell safe. Too much open space is challenging for Lulu, especially in the beginning.

Lulu is a sweetheart who is just waiting for the perfect human(s) to have the patience to let her come out of her shell at her own pace and be the cuddly, playful cat she is destined to be. Lulu does better the more time someone is at home with her. They will see her confidence improve a lot more quickly. The wait will be well worth it.

Lulu MUST have another cat for company, she would be very lonely on her own!

To learn more about Lulu... fill out an adoption application, and one of our volunteers will get back to you.

Devon's - (male DMH black and white) a gentle giant with a heart of gold.
He's quiet and likes to relax away from the business in the home, but he's also happy to snuggle with any kitten who wants to share his cushion.
Devon seems to enjoy it when a human holds him gently, so he'll most likely be a loving companion when he feels comfortable and secure.
Devon is truly good natured and gentle boy who will be a wonderful addition to your family.

Harlow: female... DSH black and white

Sweet little Harlow is a bundle of joy.
She loves to snuggle with any of her foster-mates at nap times, but when everyone is awake she's eager to be at the centre of any mischief.
Harlow likes people and adores being stroked and tickled -- she'll ask for that attention if it's not given immediately!
She'll be a beautiful cat with a loving personality, just perfect for any home.
Harlow enjoys playing with her foster siblings and would need one of them, or another kitten of the same age for company.

If you would like to make either (of both) of these kittens a part of your home, please fill out an adoption application today
