Identifying Purr-sonalities

Cats and kittens enter the Forgotten Ones adoption program after being rescued from homelessness or from limited-capacity municipal animal centres. Once in our care, each animal receives a veterinary checkup and is taken to a foster home. The rescued feline is often frightened and stressed, and a foster home provides a loving, safe and comforting environment.

Volunteers take the time to assess the personality characteristics of each cat: social interaction, affection level, playfulness, energy level, etc. Our goal is to ensure that, when a cat is adopted, the feline and family are compatible and they have a love match!

Choosing the Right Cat for You

A cat’s personality, age and suitability to your lifestyle are important considerations in choosing a feline companion. We’ll help you find a family cat that is just right for you!

Cuddly Kittens

It is a Forgotten Ones policy to adopt kittens in pairs. Kittens that remain with one of their littermates or a similar-aged companion tend to be healthier and happier. A single kitten will often develop unwanted behaviours that they won’t outgrow, such as biting or nipping; when these kittens become adult cats, they are often surrendered to animal control centres because of these avoidable behaviour issues.

Seniors – Simply Sensational

Mature cats are calm, wise and experienced. Older cats come to you litter-box trained, and tend to be easy-going. They have developed their own unique personalities; they can keep you company or are independent enough to be on their own. Adopting a senior cat will enrich your life with the presence of a devoted pet who will never forget your kindness.

FIV-Positive Cats 

FIV stands for feline immunodeficiency virus, which can cause a weakening of a cat’s immune system. Although the condition sounds ominous, FIV-positive cats can live long, happy, healthy lives with few complications from their disease; health issues resulting from the FIV virus are often minimal. For all cats, a good diet and regular veterinary checkups are important for lifelong health. With proper care, FIV+ cats can have a normal lifespan and live as happy, lovable, playful cats.

Special-needs Cats

Many cats with special needs make wonderful companions. They might be deaf, be blind, or require a special diet or regular medication. Their condition doesn’t affect the amount of love and pleasure they have to give; it just requires a commitment on your part to meet their needs for the rest of their lives. Despite any imperfections, a special-needs cat might be the perfect pet for your family.
