- Purrsonalities in a few words?

“Owl is observant and shy, then sweet and playful. She likes to perch up high in the cat tree to get the lay of the land before she joins in any fun. She warms up quickly, however, and she loves to play and get some nice scratches on her cheek.  Her favourite toy is a fluffy rainbow ball, and she loves to chase her brother Quail around!”

– Britta, Owl’s foster mom

“Quail may seem to be a bit of a wallflower at first, but he is not shy or scared. He is a sweet boy who likes to watch the action. He and Owl hit it off early on because they both enjoy playing a little more on the gentler side. Quail is a slender black cat with golden eyes, and he is going to grow up to be a gorgeous house panther!”

– Britta, Quail’s foster mom

- Any known medical conditions? No.

Owl Quail, 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. ***

Hi there, hoomans! I am Quail and I’d like to introduce myself and my sister, Owl, to you. We are looking for a furever home with a family that will appreciate our zen purrsonalities.

I’m a dignified gentleman who loves to take care of my sister. Don’t get me wrong - she takes care of me too, but I am your typical big brother.

I do have three big brothers, but they like to play all rough and tumble, and I just never got into that. I’d rather try to figure out how to get a ball out of a box or how to climb up onto a tall shelf so I can watch the world from above.

Owl is just my speed, because she likes to roll herself up in towels, and chase toys by herself too. We love to snuggle together, but we also really like to pet and sit nearby people. I’ve heard Owl purr so loud when our foster mama scratches her cheek, and she will even roll over to have her belly tickled! I don’t mind that she relaxes with the foster mama, since I’m always around to make sure she is safe!

Do you love us? 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.

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.
    - Britta

Why We Love Fostering

  • Fostering gives me the opportunity to share a journey with an animal who has no one else. Without people like me these dogs may not get a second chance at feeling safe and finding a stable, loving forever home. I remember each of them vividly and we have a special bond.
    - Cheryl & Debbie
