Dharma teddy, Adoptable Cat, Niagara

Meowllo, hoomans. We’re Dharma and Teddy - a bonded pair of domestic short-haired kittens with purrsonalities like no others.

We were born as feral cats and lived the first couple months of our lives outside - until we

were rescued by Pets Alive Niagara back in May. Since then, we have been learning to live inside and enjoy pets and cuddles from our foster mom.

Although we lost our other siblings and our birth mom, Teddy and I have stuck together through everything. You can easily say that we are best buds. We spend every waking (and sleeping) moment together, and we know how to turn anything into a toy or game. We love our afternoon snoozes and LOTS of playtime!

We can’t wait to find a furever home that will give us a cozy place to sleep and lots of space to run around and play! Maybe that will be with you.

Have we stolen your heart? If so, please feel free to apply to adopt us [below[g]/on our website via this link:][h][i]! ALL INQUIRIES REGARDING US MUST BE EMAILED TO

Adoption Fee | $ 225 (Pair)

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

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

  • Teddy and Lily came to me almost 10 years ago. Unfortunately, Lily is suffering from kidney disease, but Teddy takes care of her and watches over her to the best of his ability. I've said this so many times: They didn't need me, I needed them. Pets Alive Niagara is hands down one of the most loving, caring, involved, dedicated charities in the Niagara Region. If you are able to be part of this family jump on our band Wagon won't you? 🐾🎙.
