Current adoptable cats
We have two foster cat rooms here at the farm, and adopt out a limited number of cats and kittens. The adoption fee is $175. All cats will be neutered/spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and treated for fleas before being adopted out. Please, no declawing!!
This beauty is Peaches. She is about six years old and was surrendered to us when her owner discovered he had cat allergies (or so the story went.) Peaches was extremely upset about having to leave the only home she’d ever known, where shed been living alone her owner.
Peaches is a quirky, loving and beautiful cat, with a soupçon of sass. She’s been doing fantastically well at her wonderful foster home, but it’s time to find her a fur-ever home of her own.
This calico gal is affectionate and chock-full of personality, but when she’s had enough attention, she’ll let you know with a swat of her paw. Occasionally she’ll forget to retract her claws, LOL. She is bossy around other cats and would be best suited to a quiet home where she is the only cat. She has a sense of humour about her, and watch out for your coffee cream, because she loves to help herself!
And now to the special needs: when Peaches arrived here, she was so upset and anxious, she immediately went on a hunger strike. When we took her to the vet for an exam, she promptly went into cardiac arrest. Fortunately, she was revived. It turned out that Peaches was hyperthyroid and also had high blood pressure. Who knows when, if ever, she last saw a vet. She is now on meds to control both of these conditions: Amlodipine for high blood pressure - 1/4 pill once in the evening; Methimazole liquid for hyperthyroidism - 0.25cc twice daily by mouth. The liquids are easy to administer in her food. Her foster Mom can tell you all about the best ways to medicate Peaches! Peaches also needs occasional blood-pressure checks to make sure everything is working as it should. She eats well and is now at a great weight! We’ve done everything we can to get her back on the road to good health and she has been stable and doing well for months now. She is a sensitive girl who gets very attached to her people and will need patience and love to help her settle in. Once Peaches trusts you, she will show you her love in many quirky and wonderful ways. She is a delightful feline character who has been treated shabbily in the past and deserves so much more.
Her foster Mom suspects Peaches have been hit or swatted in the past, as she is hand-shy and afraid of brooms. But despite this, she seeks out the company of her human, and loves to sit next to her foster Mom in the evenings while they watch TV. If she feels she is not getting enough petting, she will gently pat you with her paw until you resume. We think Peaches is somebody’s dream cat. We just need to find the right somebody.
We suspect the first six years of her life could have been a whole lot better than they were, and we’d love to see her find a home with someone who will truly appreciate her uniqueness and character. She’s full of personality (the vet calls her “spicy!”) and will make you laugh on a daily basis.
If you are a person who truly loves cats and can open your heart to Peaches and give her the great home she deserves, let us know and we’ll arrange a meet-and-greet!
Another cat needing a home!
