Casper and Nick — Hospital Cats
Casper (white) was brought to us in 2008, after living as a stray on the streets. Due to his rough start, he no longer has teeth but he doesn't let his past affect his attitude today. Throughout the years, he has helped us acclimate many kittens in our adoption program. When he's not working hard to greet visitors and make his feline friends feel welcome, he enjoys lounging around and taking naps.
Nick (black and white) joined our team in 2015. Prior to that, he was eating out of a dumpster in Niagara. Though he lives well now, his eating habits haven't changed and he still enjoys dumpster diving from time to time. Nick has a taste for the finer things in life, such as bow ties and catnip.
