Ash and Sabrina

Ash and Sabrina

February 13, 2019

Six months ago, we adopted pair of cats that bonded together while at THS - Ash and Sabrina. Because they were both rescued from off the streets, they were incredibly shy when we took them home. The first few weeks were a struggle, I admit, as we worried whether we were doing the best we could.

Six months later, I am excited to say that they are now happy and comfortable with us! Ash, our beautiful slate-grey boy, has learned to love getting his bum scratched, getting his fur brushed, and playing with toys. He’s a real charismatic little fella! Sabrina, our little tabby girl, is shyer and still wary of physical contact. However, she will show us her belly, eat in front of us, and accept treats. A particularly momentous thing happened today: Sabrina ate some treats directly out of my hand, and even licked my fingers after! What a long way she’s come from hiding in the most inaccessible spots she can find.

Although these two didn’t meet each other until they were brought to THS, they are definitely brother and sister now—eating together, sleeping together, grooming each other, and more. We are so pleased to have given them a loving home and the chance to experience some security and stability. We’re so honoured to have earned their trust. Here’s to many happy years ahead! ​

We adopted caramel about 6 weeks ago. She started out very scared of us and not wanting too much attention. Now everyday we hang out after work. She LOVES bananas and she loves being pet! She likes to play “stick” and throws her ball for me to catch. She is settling in well and has even found her own spot on the couch. ​


Juniper

We adopted Juniper (then named rapunzel) on November 11, 2018. She instantly stole our heart.

Within 3 days of bringing her home, Juniper fell gravely ill with a bad respiratory infection. She battled bravely and won the fight (with the help of lots of medicine) a week later!

Since then she has been getting bigger and more energetic by the day! She is now almost 5 months old and enjoys eating, playing, running around, sleeping on us, terrorizing our other cat, and just generally being cute as a button!

She shows us the joy of living in the moment every day, our hero. Oh ya! She plays fetch better than most dogs, there is video proof!

Thanks THS for providing such an important service to the city of Toronto.


Mandu

In honour of our one year adoptaversary we thought we’d give an update on Mandu (formerly known as Thomas)! From day one he was an affectionate sweetheart, and he quickly adapted to his new home. He is super mellow, and only his nemesis the vacuum can move him from any of his favourite spots. He loves being brushed and getting belly rubs any time of the day!

Though mellow, he is actually a very talkative kitty! He loves to chat and is certainly vocal about his needs. He loves watching birds, squirrels and people from his window perch. When he’s feeling playful he’ll even play fetch!

Mandu was a bigger guy when we adopted him, but we are happy to report he is no longer overweight and is staying healthy! For anyone curious, Mandu is dumpling in Korean! We thought it fit this sweet, fluffy guy perfectly! ​
