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.

We regret any inconvenience caused as we do our best to meet the overwhelming demand we are currently experiencing.



Are you an experienced cat owner – WE NEED YOU!!!

FOSTER HOMES URGENTLY NEEDED!!

Foster homes are urgently needed at this time of year.
If you have room in your home and your heart to help get cats and kittens out of the cold, into a foster home and then on to their permanent homes, please fill out a foster parent application..

At this time we are only accepting applications from experienced cat owners.

If you are not able to foster at this time, but would still like to help Abbey Cats help these cats and kittens, (many of whom will need to be spayed or neutered) please consider making a donation.
No amount is too small to make a big difference in their lives...

We thank you in advance for your support and generosity...
    

FOSTER HOME URGENTLY NEEDED FOR MOM (COSETTE) AND 4 KITTENS!!

This mom and her 4 kittens are part of an upcoming rescue from a shelter
north of the city.
If you can offer them a warm and nurturing home until they are all ready for adoption,
please fill out a foster application.

BARDOT IS PREGNANT AND URGENTLY NEEDS A FOSTER HOME!!

Bardot will be coming to Abbey Cats from an overcrowded shelter north of Toronto.
If you can provide a safe and loving home for her and her kittens, please fill out a foster application.


KOUKLA IS PREGNANT AND URGENTLY NEEDS A FOSTER HOME!!

       
Koukla is young, pregnant and currently in an emergency foster home.
She was rescued with her sister (who is also expecting) from a very difficult situation and the hope was that both ladies would be able to co-parent their respective litters. Unfortunately, that is not going to happen.
While Koukla is very friendly with humans, being around other cats is stressing her out.

If you can provide Koukla with a safe haven in which to birth and raise her kittens ASAP.. please fill out a foster parent application and mention the name Koukla.
If you are not able to foster at this time, please consider making a donation... we are going to have a lot of hungry mouths to feed soon!

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.
