Abandoned Cats Rescue (ACR) is the longest established cat rescue group in the Hamilton area. We're a Canadian Registered Charity that is entirely volunteer operated and donor funded. We respond to requests to help abandoned and neglected cats, strays, and pets needing to be re-homed. All cats and kittens taken into our care are placed in loving foster homes and, prior to being put up for adoption, are vet examined, flea/worm treated, vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped and provided with treatments or surgeries for any identified medical issues. We never euthanize an animal in our care unless that animal is suffering and beyond any type of medical help. We believe that there is the perfect home for ALL of our cats and that each of them deserves a chance to be loved forever!
FEATURE CAT - OLIVE & LUNA
Unfortunately, when the new born baby was brought home, Luna and her friend Olive did not adjust well. They were both confined to the basement and the owners knew they deserved more than this and reached out for our help. Olive (Black) is approx. 3 years of age and Luna (Brown Tabby) 7 years of age.
Olive will purr if you look at her the right way and has a great motor. This three year old chatterbox is sweet and playful. She's still got tons of youthful energy and has grown out of the kitten-crazy phase. Olive loves to stare out windows and curl up in bed with you. She has a funny little kink at the very tip of her tail but it's not sensitive and doesn't bother her at all. Olive may get along with a similar aged cat, or will be perfectly happy on her own. She enjoys sunbathing (what cat doesn't?) and being spoiled. So far she hasn't shown to be a lap cat, but does accept being carried around and cooed over. She's a confident cat who was out exploring her foster home quickly. This darling cat will bring a lot of joy and companionship to her new home.
Luna may have moon-eyes, but this confident 7 year old is the boss of the house. Luna lost a large part of her vision as a kitten and her condition is stable - the vet feels that Luna's mother passed on feline herpes virus and that's the reason for her cloudy eyes. She has no issues navigating new spaces and easily jumps on to furniture. No extra medical care is required for Luna. Luna loves people and doesn't want to share them with other creatures. She'll thrive as an only pet in a quiet to moderate volume home without young children. Luna enjoys human companionship, sitting on laps, and sleeping in beds and chasing her toys. To make sure she lives her best life Luna needs to continue losing weight. Daily portioned food and lots of crinkleball toys will help. She's a charmer and will melt your heart with one look into her unique eyes.
