Montreal Cats Need Homes

A friend of Mommy's sent her a link to a newspaper article about a man who passed away and left behind his seven beloved cats in need of a home.  The man's family is desperately looking to find wonderful homes for them and so we thought maybe we could help by spreading the word.

These cats are in Montreal, but if you're outside the city, Mommy will definitely help with transport.

Here are their descriptions:

Lars and Sven are 8 year-old brothers. Ideally, these two giant black and white beauties would be adopted together. They’re both extremely friendly and outgoing. Lars has short fur and is a big, fat, cat. Sven has long, luxurious fur and loves being carried around like the furry emperor he thinks he is. Both are fabulous, charming, wonderful, healthy, neutered, accustomed to being brushed (Lars isn’t really TOO keen but Sven is) and have all their shots.


Precious (Presh-Presh) is a charming female, neutered, 8 year-old tabby cat. She deserves to be the center of attention and mistress of her own domain and family. She would enjoy being the only four-legged pet in her new home. She’s very sociable and playful, despite having been bullied by the other cats. She likes to observe what’s going on from a high vantage point and loves curling up in a good box or basket. She meows most expressively! She’s the kind of cat who owns her master so an experienced cat owner is preferred. She’s healthy and has all her shots.


Cirrus. 8. Female, neutered. Cirrus is a bit skittish but inquisitive, and VERY, VERY chatty (with a quiet miaow). She’s friendly once she’s accustomed to you. She’s delightfully good-natured. She gets along with dogs but is indifferent to small children. She loves it when someone brushes her soft, gray long fur. She’s healthy and has all her shots (She’s sister of Voodoo and Mandrake below.)

Voodoo. Female, 8. Neutered. She’s one shade paler than black and LOVES being brushed. She’s such a wonderful! Expressive! Super-friendly cat! She communicates with meaningful and expressive meowing, but not so much as to annoy her human friends. Voodoo needs to be courted to get over her initial, lady-like reserve; once she knows you she’s very friendly and curious about what you’re doing. She’s healthy, glossy, good weight and has all her shots.

Mandrake. Male, 8. Neutered, healthy. Mandrake is a very beautiful, slim black puss with the most gorgeous, silky short fur. He prefers the indoors. Mandrake is very shy, leery of strangers and nervous of unusual activity. He needs a good hidey-hole to which he can retreat when disturbed. He needs a patient, cat-savvy owner who can earn his trust and he’d probably be happier if he were the only cat in the household. He’s had all his shots.

Tristan is 17-years old and needs a very special person – someone who has the love, time and patience for an old and demanding cat.

Our sweet friend Squashies will be leaving today and we are so very sad.  Her family could use some purrs if you can drop by her blog.

We will miss you, friend.
