Duncan and Skotch
Duncan (Dunkin) was adopted in July 2010 at 4 years old. He made himself at home after a couple of days, and it was just me and him for a few years. He is social and nosey, always has to know what is going on. He isn’t much for cuddling in your arms but loves to be petted and always joins me for an afternoon nap.
When I started dating David, we moved into a new apartment a few months after (June, 2012), and thought about getting a second cat, but it was still just an idea. Until David saw Skotch (Mango) on show at PetSmart. He fell in love. Skotch was seven months old, so cuddly and purred right away. We filled out the application and took him home two days later.
It took a few months for Duncan to get along with Skotch, but now they are so happy together, run around the apartment, “share” each other’s food dishes, have their own sides of the bed, and love to go outside on the deck (harness and leash, supervised). Duncan keeps Skotch in line with house rules, and Skotch keeps Duncan young and energetic. Could not have chosen a better pair for us!
Thanks so much to the Humane Society, and we always Opt to Adopt and will tell others to do so as well!
Take care to all!
Jenna and David
Duncan and Skotch
I couldn’t be more in love with my two wonderful cats. Being quite the princess I wasn’t sure how Penny (adopted in 2012) would take to Zinga, but it is like they have been together since day one. Zinga continues to be a little trouble maker, but the most loving cat I have ever owned. I had quite the scare when she had to spend the night at the vet less than a month after I brought her home when she discovered how to operate the LysolI couldn’t be more in love with my two wonderful cats.

I adopted Mason in May, after visiting him at his foster home. He was SO shy when we visited but there was something about him that just told me there was a lot of love in there somewhere. I was right! He spent the first two weeks living under my couch, coming out only to eat and use the litter box, then he very slowly started peeking out while I was up at night, and letting me pet him while he was under the couch. He’s now almost obnoxiously affectionate! I’m so glad I took the chance and didn’t let myself be put off by the fact that he wasn’t an ‘instant cuddler’! I think he’s pretty happy too.
Andrew and Bella
I adopted Andrew (formally named Popcorn) and Bella (formally named Mom) a few years ago. I have never met a cat with such a big personality as Andrew. He has become a very big part of many households in my neighborhood. Bella on the other hand is still very shy and very timid. She prefers to stick close to home and close to the people she feels safest with. They are complete opposites and Andrew sometimes bullies Bella a bit. But they do love each other and their family, and we love them!
It has been one year since Cleo came home with us, and we couldn’t be happier! She has been the best cat we ever could have asked for. Last month, we made the move to BC and Cleo was happy to join us on the West Coast, although she was none too happy about the plane ride. She is as snugly and lovable as ever and I hope she is as happy with us as we are with her!
Moose, Ollie and Abby
Moose, Ollie (formerly Clarence) and Abby were all recently adopted together in May 2014. Moose and Ollie quickly formed a brotherly bond that could not be broken and Abby rules the roost as momma bear. The boys are full of energy, love to run around and wrestle as well as play with feather wands and stuffed mice around all their scratching posts and cat trees. Abby is more into laying back on her hammock, relaxing and watching the silly boys but she also loves to play with her feather wands, Cat Action Team mice and jingle balls.
We recently lost our baby boy Zeus, 18 years old, and decided that the house was too quiet. We were so fortunate to have the staff at the Humane Society help us through this process as well as recommend the perfect blend of kitty love. Thank you so much for bringing our family together, these fur babies enrich our lives and we couldn’t be happier.
Hello, just wanted to send you an update on how Lou is doing. I have had a few dogs in the past, and while I have loved each of them dearly, Lou is a very special dog and perhaps the best companion I have hoped for.
I take Lou everywhere I can and where ever he goes people always comment on his awesome temperament (not to mention his handsome looks).
He is truly my best friend and I am so happy to have him in my life. Here is a picture of us relaxing after a nice long walk around the waterfront and Victoria Park
It is now hard think about live without our little black kitty (formerly Babette) . She is with us always, rubbing against our shins, or running along side us as we walk around the house. We go outside and she meows at the windows until we get back. She is a teddy bear with our daughter loves her more than anything! Especially in the morning when she comes purring on the bed meowing good morning. Thank you to the humane society for allowing us to let this kitty into our hearts
Dixie came to our home in February 2011 and has been a wonderful addition to our family. She loves her walks in the woods and enjoys curling up with her red teddy bear and a good bone after a hard days play. She has been very well behaved since day 1 and graduated with flying colours from her Family Dog Training Level 1 and 2 courses. She loves to be outside when the weather is nice and sometimes refuses to come in until dark. She likes to play with her “cousins” Lily and Guinness whenever she can.
We adopted Apollo (formerly Kris Kringle) in February and over these past few months he has become a wonderful part of our family. It took some time for our other two cats to warm up to him but now they are the best of friends. He is very loving and full of energy(the most playful 2 year old cat I have ever seen, he even puts our Abby to shame! ). He loves to play with anything he can get his paws on(we have to hide the toilet paper lol ) and is always vocal about when he wants attention. We love him very much and we are so glad we were able to bring this ball of fluff into our lives.
Noah and Twinkle
Nova and Twinkle (formerly Sugar and Dove) are male and female kittens from a litter of eight! They are utterly adorable, and we can’t imagine life without them. They’re quite different from each other. Nova is our big guy. He’s lovely to snuggle and will raise his arms out to you when you pick him up. He’s a quiet soul, and more than willing to supervise Twinkle’s antics. And Twinkle is our petite lady. She investigates everything! She’s bouncy, “cherpy” and plays fetch. Can’t find Nova? Look underneath the bed. Missing Twinkle? Look up…..way up!
Little Magnum (now Dexter) came into my life while I was attending Holland College as a much needed companion for my older cat, Baxter (a Saskatchewan rescue). He has grown and flourished. He has traveled extensively – now living in Alberta. But he loves a good road trip and begs to go for car rides. He is curious and brave, but still a kitten at heart. He is well loved and we cannot imagine our life without our “lil guy.”
I have always said that Sterling chose me from the very first time I met him and I really think it’s true – he fits into our family perfectly and has charmed everybody he meets. He also keeps us laughing with his antics chasing foam balls and shredding toilet paper (well, maybe not so much when he shreds a new roll) and he is certainly a delightful sight every evening when he greets us at the door after work. He has the biggest personality of any cat I’ve ever known and he has been a joy to love.
When we were looking to add another member of our family, Jessie (formerly Gorgia) caught our eye. Being the most timid pup of her little of 12, we just needed to bring this girl home. Little did we know, she would cost us many dollars in vet bills and medication, due to a bladder infection that just would not go away!! Now, 8 months later, we are happy to report that our big 77 lbs girl has a clean bill of health!
She is very protective of our 2 year old Charlie, and keeps us laughing every day! She is our big baby, she loves to cuddle and give kisses!
Bear (formerly Loki) has settled in very nicely with us! He likes to spend quality time sleeping next to the goldfish and hanging out in the living room with his people. He’s a riot to play with (he likes to show off his ninja moves when chasing his rope) and never ceases to make us laugh. We absolutely love our Little Bear and look forward to the many years ahead of us
Bo Diamond Sparkle
Bo Diamond (formerly Asimov) is a great cat. We love him, he loves us, couldn’t ask for more. He is such a sweet cat and cuddles with everyone from our three year old daughter (He loves story time) to the family dog. Thanks again.
It has been a great year for our Bella! She is a far cry from the nervous girl who we first met while she was in foster care. Bella has become a big part of our family. When we first adopted our girl she was scared of everything, had some food aggression and would pee whenever she got nervous (all the time). We are very happy to report that all Bella needed was a loving stable home. She is no longer nervous of ANYTHING, she rarely has accidents in the house, she shares her dinner with her brothers (a dog and cat) AND she is now an off leash dog!! Something we thought was not going to be possible. Bella loves to run, play fetch, swim at the beach and play with her brothers. We could not be happier with her!!
Charlie and Inka
My boyfriend and I adopted Charlie & Inka just a month ago, and we are soooo happy with our fur babies! Within the first half hour of bringing them home, they were both sleeping happily together on our bed! Inka enjoys snuggling on the couch, while Charles likes to sleep either on our bed or the top of the washing machine. Together they enjoy taking turns chasing each other. Inka is a super picky eater, but we found some food she enjoys
