Ollie#2

MALE – MEDIUM HAIR – Orange & White … Estimated Birthdate: April 30, 2018

Ollie#2 has had an interesting history as he comes into ICAN’s care now ready to find his perfect forever home. He first came to ICAN’s notice a while back as an unneutered male, along with another unneutered male, who had been taken in because they seemed to be surviving completely on their own.

ICAN took care of the unneutered part right away and since then Ollie #2 has been adjusting to being in a home environment, without other animals and we’ve been finding out more about his likes and dislikes along the way.

At first he was very skittish and we gave him time to hide in safe shelter conditions until he became comfortable with humans. Ollie had been exposed to other animals and young children, was litter trained and was used to being an indoor/outdoor cat. For example, he was amiable to being brushed and petted when we first met him.

Ollie is a mover and a shaker – he is curious about everything and likes to be busy. He is quite taken with laser toys and enjoys being held and brushed. He is playful, calm, friendly and very social. He loves to run and chase after his humans as they move about, so would likely be entertained if there were children in the house.

He might also do best in a one cat household – while he has been exposed to other cats on his journey here, he also seems to love having family to himself. We are not sure if he has been exposed to dogs. If we could describe Ollie in one word, it would be “SASSY”

We think Ollie would benefit by being in a safe situation (fenced or protected outdoor zone) where he could continue to indulge his preference to have some supervised outdoor time – his interest, while sleeping comfortably inside at night.

He has recently had a really good haircut as you can see, so he’s ready to meet his new family anytime! Come meet Ollie by calling for an appointment to: 250-341-7888.

Sage

Female – Tabby mix with Torti coloring – Estimated Birthdate: June 18, 2020

Meet Sage! She was a rescue along with her 3 gorgeous kittens, Clover, Basil and Willow. She is currently in ICAN foster care and is doing a great job of mothering her little ones, until they are spay/neutered and ready to move to their newly adopted families.

Sage will soon be able to leave her current foster care home, to go to her own new family. We were successful in getting her spay booked for mid April so pretty much any time after that she will be ready to leave. Will that be with you?

She is calm and as you can see a real beauty. Her Foster Mom says Sage is very sweet. She’s very friendly and likes to be petted, but isn’t the type to cuddle or settle in with you for long periods. They say she does “drive by” petting sessions frequently, before she’s off to somewhere else. 

She has likely been an indoor/outdoor cat prior to coming to us since daytimes she seems to want to go out. At intake we were told she was okay with kids, didn’t like being held often, likes scratching logs and was indifferent to visitors. Depending on the risk to her safety in your area, you may want to keep her in, or use a harness if you take her outside of a safe and fenced yard. She will have adjusted to not going outside now while she is in foster care, so it is a good time to put her safety first.

Quaker

MALE – BLACK & WHITE – Estimated Birthdate: March 20, 2014

Meet Quaker – who arrived at ICAN with his friend Lightning just recently.
We are still getting to know him and will be able to provide more information over the next week or two.

Arrangements are currently being made for both Quaker and Lightning to receive the standard Veterinary treatments all new ICAN guests receive and they won’t likely be available for adoption until the latter part of April, 2021.

Please come back and visit again – we are holding off putting up the Adoption Form link for now, until we have more detailed information to share about both these little cuties.

Staley

Male – Black & White
Estimated birthdate: October 22, 2020

Staley is one of 4 kittens who came to us via TNR project – rescued from a local ranch.

Staley will melt into you when he’s held. He was the first of his siblings to realize how good life is now that he is warm and getting regular loving. 

He has a funny grumpy look, but don’t let that fool you!

We lucked out and were able to get Staley and Vedder into their surgeries ahead of schedule, so he is available for adoption now!

Bruiser

Male – Gray-Black Tabby Estimated birthdate: Dec 16, 2019

Bruiser has come into ICAN care once again by way of a joint TNR project which focuses on rescuing and placing young cats and kittens that would otherwise likely become feral. He has arrived at the shelter ready for neutering and looking for his new forever home, along with his bunkmates Brillo and Bronx.

All 3 of these little Tabby boys are adorable. They are familiar with each other since they were all captured from the same area and Bruiser is the largest of the 3. They all like their pettings, especially the 2 bigger boys. They have been used to kind human contact because they all are quick to accept belly rubs and will come forward for human touch.

We’ve been fortunate with booking a March neuter date, so if you are looking for a companion animal, any one of these 3 little fellows will be available to go to their new homes before the end of March.

Give us a call at 250-341-7888 to book a viewing.

Bronx

Male – Brown & Black Tabby – Estimated birthdate: August 8, 2020

Bronx has come into ICAN care also by way of a joint TNR project which focuses on rescuing and placing young cats and kittens that would otherwise likely become feral. He has arrived at the shelter ready for neutering and looking for his new forever home, along with his bunkmates Brillo and Bruiser.

All 3 of these little Tabby boys are adorable. They are familiar with each other since they were all captured from the same area and Bronx is the youngest of the 3. They all like their pettings, especially the 2 bigger boys however because he is quite a bit younger than Brillo and Bruiser, little Bronx seems shyest and enjoyed being kept snuggled between his counterparts. He likes pets too but is not as animated in response to human touch as the other two. They have been used to non-threatening human contact, because they all are quick to accept belly rubs and will come forward for human touch.

We’ve been fortunate with booking a March neuter date, so if you are looking for a companion animal, any one of these 3 little fellows will be available to go to their new homes before the end of March.

Give us a call at 250-341-7888 to book a viewing.

Brillo

Male – Gray – Black Tabby – Estimated birthdate: March 8, 2019

Brillo has come into ICAN care by way of a joint TNR project which focuses on rescuing and placing young cats and kittens that would otherwise likely become feral. He has arrived at the shelter ready for neutering and looking for his new forever home, along with his bunkmates Bruiser and Bronx.

Brillo accepting Belly-Rubs

All 3 of these little Tabby boys are adorable and they are familiar with each other since they were all captured from the same area. They all like their pettings, especially the 2 bigger boys. They have been used to kind human contact because they all are quick to accept belly rubs and will come forward for human touch.

Brillo was trying to climb over Bronx the other day to get closer to volunteer pettings and looked so adorable because he had his arm around the little one at one point  — he was also kneading so obviously happy with human touch.

We’ve been fortunate with booking a March neuter date, so if you are looking for a companion animal, any one of these 3 little fellows will be available to go to their new homes before the end of March.
