“Emu is a great all-around kitten. He is playful and full of joy, with just a bit of mischief. He loves to be held and pet, but also loves to play! He is brave and curious, and he should adjust well to his new family.”

– Britta, Emu’s foster mom

“Rook is all personality.  She has connected with me since almost the very beginning. As a tiny, three-week old, she liked to sit on my foot and stare up at me lovingly. Now, every time I come into the room, Rook hops up to the same spot on the bed and stares lovingly, waiting to be greeted. She is a loving and confident kitten.”

Emu Rook, 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.

Good day to you, animal lover! I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Emu, and I’m looking for an amazing family to love me and my sister, Rook.

My foster mom says I am an all-around award-winning family kitten, and I’m going to be a great cat! I like to play with soft toys, play soccer with ping pong balls, and chase string toys. I also love to snuggle, purr and be scratched on the cheek. I’m not shy or scared, and I should feel right at home with you in no time.  

My sister, Rook, is very self-assured. She likes to play alone or with our brothers - including me - and she does not shy away from a bit of rough and tumble wrestling, even with the strongest boys in the litter. She is super affectionate, too.

Do you want to experience the purrfect balance of playfulness and affection? If so, please feel free to apply below.


Adoption Fee | $ 298 (Pair)

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. 

For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page. alternatively, you can email us and communicate with our Adoption Coordinator:

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

  • The thought of cats and kittens missing out on a loving home is one big reason as to why I foster. I thoroughly enjoy watching homeless cats go from being afraid of their own shadow, to throwing themselves at you with all their pent up love. It is so hard to see the cats/kittens leave once they are ready, but knowing someone has adopted a once abandoned sweetheart is the best feeling ever.
