Mabel, Adoptable Cat, Niagara

*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the cats listed as Coming Soon. These cats have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***

Make way for me! My name is Mabel, and I am the runt of the litter. That doesn’t make me any less capable of things, though, as I am the bravest of the bunch. I am always the first to accomplish something and have no fear of (basically) anything. My foster mommy says that my fur reminds her of a sable. It’s very pretty and soft.


Due to my high level of energy, my love for climbing up my foster family’s legs and jumping on their shoulders, I would not be suited for a home with small children (any child under the age of 10). There’s no malicious intent when I do this; I’m simply just curious and clingy.


I love my siblings and the foster dog that also lives with us! Although he’s much larger than me, he’s a great friend.


If you would like to be considered for the position of my furever family, you can apply to adopt me (with or without a sibling) below. All inquiries regarding me must be emailed to

Adoption Fee | $ 149

The feline adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescuing, such as vetting, food, kitty litter and other expenses.

Prior to adoption, cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and given flea treatment. In short, they receive any necessary treatment.

Why We Love Fostering

  • There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.

Why We Love Fostering

  • From fluffy kitten cuddles, to endless purrs and kisses, fostering allows me to live a true “crazy cat lady’s” dream! Most importantly, it gives me the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of kittens/cats - some of which have come from very sad and difficult situations - and provide them with a safe and loving start before they go to their furever homes. While it is always challenging to say goodbye, I find comfort in knowing that there is a thorough application process to ensure the kittens/cats are adopted into the purr-fect home.
