Here’s a list of adoptable cats and kittens at Healing Animal SCARS – Sonya’s Cat & Animal Rescue Society

Mr. Avery Guysborough – he is a timid short haired male brown and black tabby kitten with white toes. He is about 4 months old and very playful. He must go to a home with another cat to keep him company. He was already about 10 or 11 weeks old when he was rescued, and at first he was feral, but he has learned to trust because he is quite food motivated. He’s a sweet little flirt that comes near to you, and when you reach out to touch him he backs away a bit and plays keep away. When he finally flops down in his bed, he demands belly rubs and purrs loudly. He would not be suitable for children under 10. He loves to wrestle and romp with blind Helene so it is important that he has a playmate.

Steven and Gary – Steven is a short haired black boy and his brother Gary is grey. They are a very bonded pair, so their foster mom Christine Kennedy and I agree that they should be adopted together. They are sweet little chatty boys who love to play and snuggle for naps. Here’s what their foster mom has to say about them:
They’re so funny. Gary has this long sookie meow like, “Mom why you not feed me sooner?” every time I feed them and then Steven chimes in because of Gary 😂

Satin and Silky – these silver Beauties could be adopted as a pair, but we don’t mind separating them as long as they go to a home with another cat to keep them company. Satin is a short-haired grey Tabby, and Silky is a long-haired grey tabby girl. They were spayed through the Trap neuter return program, and they were destined to go to a barn, but I knew they were friendly and deserved a chance at a home in thought. Satin loves to rub up against your feet, and beg for attention when you are standing up. Silky loves to play and be petted, and she is a bit frisky sometimes. They both purr loudly. You have to meet these lovely young ladies to appreciate their personalities. They are nervous in new situations, so I would advise an adopter not to let them loose in the whole home, at first they should be isolated to a single room so they get used to their new surroundings.

Annabel Lee and Gwen – Annabel Lee is a feral mother cat, and Gwen is not her daughter! But they have become a bonded pair. Annabel Lee has quite a history! Somebody told me about kittens in North End Halifax in July 2019, so my friends Julie Clarke and Wendy Lewis went to rescue them and brought them to the SPCA. Annabel Lee went to a foster home for socialization, but that person made the mistake of bringing her to PetSmart in Dartmouth Crossing, where she somehow escaped. Annabel Lee was on her own all winter, but back in May of this year, a citizen told me about a mother cat and kittens off the Waverly Road, near the Micmac Bar and Grill. Julie and I managed to rescue the three tiny kittens and caught the mother cat the next day. That’s when Julie put two and two together and realized, with her unique markings, it had to be the same kitten that had escaped last year! Poor Annabel Lee could have been inside somebody’s home all winter, but instead she managed somehow to survive on her own and make a boyfriend. Not to worry, we got her spayed so she won’t be a mother cat ever again! She is now almost 15 month old. Her kittens were all adopted, and she went into a bit of a depression when they left. Luckily, her foster mom Karen Algee Buote agreed to take another litter of kittens into foster. Right away, Annabel Lee perked up and started mothering the kittens. A couple of them have already been adopted, and now Gwen is the only kitten left and she has bonded with Annabel Lee. They must be adopted together!

Sheriff of Nottingham – he is a spectacular brown and black long haired tabby kitten, who loves to play with other kitties. He must go to a home that has another kitty to keep him company. He is in Foster with Melissa Mason and he is not afraid of her golden retriever dog

Charlotte she is another adorable kitten in Foster with Melissa, and we have a home lined up for her after we finish her vet work.

Happy Angus – he was a beautiful old battered and bruised boy when he was first trapped by Melissa Mason. He had many wounds over his body from fighting to survive when he was abandoned at a farm. He had multiple abscess wounds on his legs and face, he had to have a dental surgery to remove bad teeth, and he had to have eye surgery to correct and propion and a slice in his eye lid from fighting with other cats. We recognized that he was friendly enough for adoption, so he went into foster with Cindy Murphy. Happy Angus gets along fabulously with all the other cats in the foster home. He particularly loves spending time in the catio, so it would be fantastic to find him a home that has an outdoor enclosure so he can safely enjoy fresh air.
Notes from Angus’s foster mom.
Angus is one of those cats who is truly happy to be rescued. It’s like he is smiling all the time! He has progressed tremendously since his medical issues are resolved and he has started to trust again. When he sees me he runs to his favorite perch, throws himself on his side, and waits for attention. He likes being petted and has learned to play. He is a good eater, and faithful with his litter box use.
Angus would do best in a home with a catio*. Having access to a catio has helped him transition to life inside, and being in it makes him SO happy! He would still be able to enjoy the outdoors, but now he’d be safe. I believe that having a catio for Angus will be key to a successful adoption.
*a catio is a ‘cat patio’ – an outdoor enclosure for your cat. For more info, visit

To inquire about adoption, first you must call me at 902-469-6369 for a pre-screening interview on the phone. Then if I think you are a good match for one of our kitties, you can email katsonya@accesswave.ca for an application. You must call your Veterinary Hospital to give them permission to discuss your file with us. Once you have completed and returned the application by email, then we verbally review it on the phone and I call your vet to check your history. After those stages have been completed, we can invite you into the foster homes to meet the kitties in person. We request an adoption donation of $250 for each cat or kitten. They are tested for feline leukaemia, and if they are over 6 months old, they are also tested for FIV. They get two or three sets of booster vaccines, so they are fully protected for a year. They are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Each cat gets a microchip for permanent identification. They are treated for parasites, as well as any existing illnesses or injuries they may have.

If you have any questions, I’m not good at responding to messages online, it’s best to try to reach me by phone. My voicemail is often full, so if you don’t reach me the first time, try calling again an hour later
