Naya

Naya

September 27, 2019

When I first rescued Naya, she was sick with Giardia, Coccidia, an ear infection and was 15 pounds underweight. She had been brought back to the humane society 3 times before I had found her and brought her home. With medication and lots of TLC over time she bounced right back. Originally from a sled dog company she was slated to be euthanized. 4 years later she’s strong as an ox. She’s so positive and never gives up. I have no regrets adopting her. When I walked into the shelter I knew right away that she was the one.

Naya is originally from Northern Ottawa, Canada where she worked for a sled dog company which was extremely abusive and neglectful of their dogs. She has general anxiety, fear of aggression and separation anxiety. I was told that I would have to crate her for the rest of her dog life, but now I’m able to let her roam the whole house when I’m gone. Naya is 5 years old. A well mannered woman, but likes to play like she’s still a puppy. She likes to play with animals of all sizes, even if they don’t like to.

Despite the double coat of huskies, Naya loves to swim! The only way I’m able to properly dry her off is with my 4.2 horsepower force dryer. Playful, gentle, loyal, and loves attention. Her favourite hobbies include meeting new friends in high park and hanging out at her aunt’s office.


Bean

My new kitten Bean is incredible. She was fearless on the ride home and was ready to claim the house as her own the moment we stepped inside. Since then she’s been very well-behaved, shown a lot of intelligence and is super affectionate.

She has lots of safe spaces to run around and climb, as well as a bunch of toys to play with to expend her endless energy. She recognizes a few phrases, responds to when called and likes to hear that she’s a good girl. This kitty is super brave as she loves to explore and enjoys taking cat naps in various places.

I give her plenty of love and she’s eager to show that she loves me back through lots of playtime, kisses and cuddles. This has been one of the happiest weeks of my life and I am so lucky to have found my new best friend. Thank you THS!


Rumba

Rumba settled in so quickly and he’s already familiar with every nook and cranny in the apartment. He’s been nothing short of sweet and has been very friendly ever since.

While it’s been less than a week, he’s already a familiar face in the home and we’re so happy to have him for all the years to come. Our next plan is to purchase a cat tree for him to hang out at his favourite spot beside the windows overlooking Bloor Street!


Toph

Toph

​We adopted Toph (formerly known as Wednesday) at the end of July. Almost immediately, she adjusted to the apartment and spent the first day with us cuddling and showing us loads of affection. The photo attached is her first night with us and she never fails to make us laugh with her crazy sleeping positions. We found out that Toph LOVES to play fetch, especially with crumpled paper or her favourite toy mouse. There have been many moments where Toph would drop her mouse by our heads while we’re in bed, meowing for us to throw it. Not to mention the countless times we’ve found crumpled papers all over our bed in the mornings.

Toph is definitely a unique girl and we are so blessed that we were able to adopt her from THS!
