Mischa

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2007

BREED: DS

COLOUR:  Black

GENDER: Neutered Male

MEDICAL:  Hyperthyroid

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/mischa-58960724/on/brantford/second-hope-circle-on606/

BIO:

Mischa is approx 15 or so years old and was transferred to us from an Ontario shelter. He was there for months after his person died and was getting upper respiratory and eye infection. It was time for him to leave!

He is a very outgoing boy and loves to explore and chat to you. He’s also very good with other cats! He is fine with calm dogs after a few days, and doesn’t mind when the dog in his foster home lays next to him.

Mischa has hyperthyroidism controlled with medication. He could gain some more weight which we are working on.

While he hasn’t met kids yet it seems like he’s be fine with them. He doesn’t mind being picked up. Mischa will gently paw and claw at your face and clothing to get your attention for pats.

We will be doing additional blood and urine testing to confirm he has no other medical needs (happening December 7th 2022).

 

Hamish

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2008

BREED: DLH

COLOUR:  Brown Tabby

GENDER: Neutered Male

MEDICAL: Stage 2 Kidney Disease

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/hamish-58960722/on/brantford/second-hope-circle-on606/

BIO:

Hamish is about 14 years old. He was found as a stray and transferred to us from an Ontario shelter when his time was up. He is very friendly, loves his food & crinkle balls. Plus he’s good with other animals. Hamish is very good with young children too!

His foster notes “Hamish is very sweet. Great with the other cats and the baby. He loves to play. He plays with the other cats, by himself or with the baby.. he is very passionate about food and snacks! Loves cuddles and pats”

Hamish has the beginning of stage 2 kidney disease. He will need fluids and support for his kidneys (food/supplements) as recommend throughout the rest of his life. Fluids are quite east to give especially for food motivated cats like Hamish and we are happy to teach you.

 

Toby

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2010

BREED: DSH

COLOUR:  Brown Tabby

GENDER: Neutered Male

MEDICAL: None

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/toby-56077533/on/brantford/second-hope-circle-on606/

BIO: Toby is approx 12 years old and so handsome!

Toby and Midnight arrived after their person died and they went to a couple other homes who couldn’t keep them. They are comfortable around each other but not bonded, we feel they’d be totally fine being adopted separately.

Toby is affectionate, has super soft fur, enjoys playtime and belly rubs!

He’s a big boy (at least for the Sanctuary around 13 pounds) with a tiny meow! He enjoys playing, being up high and meowing at dinner time. Toby is a bit bossy and would prefer a home without other dominant cats. He may do best as an only cat (depends on your Kitty’s purrsonaility).

He has met a 7 year old child and was not a fan. He ran and hid as soon as he heard kids in the house. Toby is looking for a home without young children, so we’re looking for kids at least age 12 and up and are calm and respectful of cats.

Toby has a heart murmur. It is not uncommon in cats. Just to be cautious we had an echocardiogram performed and luckily he has no signs of heart disease! Toby is a healthy boy and not on any medications.

 

Chichi

 

STATUS: Available!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2008

BREED: DSH

COLOUR:  White

GENDER: Spayed Female

MEDICAL: Deaf, osteoarthritis, heart condition (last 2 treated with meds)

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/chichi-55253659/on/brantford/second-hope-circle-on606/

BIO: Chichi is a sweetie pie with pretty white fur and light blue eyes. Her eyes have been hard to see because she came to us with horribly infected sore eyes. We treated her eyes with medication for several months without resolution and the vet determined she has entropian! This is a condition where there are hairs touching the eyes. She had her first surgery in February and after recovery it was determined she needed a second surgery.  She has recovered from both surgeries and is doing great! She came with Mikey but they are not bonded and Chichi would prefer not to be adopted with him.

Chichi adores catnip, cozy cave like nap spots and cheek rubs. She is a little less confident than Mikey and will need time to settle in. Chichi has osteoarthritis and walks in an unusual way because of this. She’s now on pain meds and this helps. Chichi had very bad teeth, but after a dental surgery she is feeling so much better! Chichi is deaf. Chichi does have a heart condition that was discovered and is now on once daily medication to support her. 

Chichi loves heated cat beds! She will not come to you, but if you go to her she practically falls over trying to get cheek rubs and heads pats. She can be picked up but prefers not to be and since her back end can be sore from osteoarthritis so we don’t pet her there. She enjoys interactive play time with wand toys. We think in a home without other pets Chichi will flourish! 

 

Midnight

STATUS: Pending Adoption!

Approximate Date of Birth: 2007

BREED: DSH

COLOUR:  Black with white chest mark

GENDER: Spayed Female

MEDICAL: Deaf, arthritis, hyperthyroid

Petfinder Profile: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/midnight-56077575/on/brantford/second-hope-circle-on606/

BIO: Midnight is approx 15 years old and so soft!

Midnight and Toby arrived after their person died and they went to a couple other homes who couldn’t keep them. They are comfortable around each other but not bonded, we feel they’d be totally fine being adopted separately.

Midnight is approx 15 years old and has hyperthyroidism. This is treated by a pill twice a day which is easy to give. She also has arthritis, again treated by a simple oral medication. She is very easy to medicate. Midnight is very affectionate and confident and even likes belly rubs and being brushed.

Midnight is super soft. She has a playful side, loves food and will tell you all about it, and enjoys snoozing on a screened in porch. She mostly ignores other cats so she’s be okay with a calm laid back kitty or two. She would be okay with a dog who doesn’t chase or bug her.

She has met a 7 year old child who petted her and picked her up. Midnight is fine with respectful children and doesn’t run or hide, but enjoys the love!

Midnight has a dental coming up in September and is available for adoption in the meantime. The dental cost is covered by us.
