Keke & Nico – Still Here, Still Cute!

Keke and Nico are getting cuter by the day. It used to be that just Riker woke us up in the morning, but Keke and Nico have now joined in as well. Once we start stirring, they’re up on the bed to see what’s going on. And as soon as we’re in the kitchen making coffee, they’re on the counter or around our feet, in a chorus of meows, asking for wet food.

Of course, closer proximity also means better photos. Take a look!

An Update on Keke & Nico – 2 Kittens Ready for Adoption!

It’s been a month since our last update on these little fur babies, and they’ve come so far!

They’re still a tiny bit wary of contact if you sneak up on them or you come in a bit too quickly, but Keke and Nico are now very comfortable in our home. Perhaps a bit too comfortable – these two are extremely active and sometimes it feels as though they’re actually running this household! We’ve had to put a small barrier around our wine rack, and it’s become common to see Keke scaling our fig bush.

That said, Keke and Nico are extremely cute and we love having them here. They adore our cat, Riker, and the three of them spend much of their day napping on top of each other.

In the evenings, when we climb into bed to read, it’s not long before all three cats join us. They alternate between chasing our legs/feet under the bedspread, and sleeping in our laps.

These 2 are the most bonded kittens we’ve ever fostered, and they are always close to one another. Our condo isn’t huge, but if one can’t find the other, the crying begins right away.

Last week Keke was spayed and Nico was neutered (shout out to the awesome teams at the Roncy Village Vet Hospital!), which means they’re now ready for adoption.

Meet Keke & Nico – 2 Little Kittens!

Spring and summer are prime kitten season, and we’re very pleased to be fostering two adorable little baby cats, Nico and Keke.

Monique was recently adopted, and so we are fostering two new little friends for Riker.

This brother sister combo are approx. 3 months old, and were born in a non-ACR foster colony. They were a bit of a wreck when they first were rescued, but were well on their way to health and happiness when we picked them up.

They were originally called Rocket and Banana Bread, but we quickly renamed them after the father-son Formula One race drivers, Nico and Keke Rosberg (we originally thought that Keke was a boy).

We’re also extremely pleased to see that the kittens are so in love with Riker, and he’s doing a great job of being a ‘big brother’ to these two.

Nico, the one with the pink paws and white nose, is a bit more wary of people. His sister Keke, with little black paws and a smudge on her nose, is a bit more adventurous and willing to snuggle.

Meet Monique!

Monique, or “Mo”, is the sweetest little roommate that you could ask for. She’s a graceful and adventurous cat, who loves to explore new heights, and is often found on top of the fridge where she keeps watch on her foster family’s home.

When she came to us, she was wary of people, but she’s quickly warmed up to us. When we’re in the washroom brushing our teeth, etc, she’s just outside the door checking us out.

Monique is mostly quiet, but makes the adorable little bird-like mews when she’s ready to be petted. Every morning she gets up on the counter and puts her tail in the air, mewing, to let us know that she’s ready for her daily scratches.

At night, she’ll crawl onto the end of her foster parents’ bed and play with their feet before cuddling up with our cat, Riker. Monique would be great with other pets or with kids. She’s a sweet little cat who’s happy as long as she has space to roam and a high spot to explore.

Monique is a beautiful and sweet little cat, and we’re sure her new family will love having her in their home.

Introducing Blake and Jacqueline.

After Bella Mae was adopted, Riker moped around the house while we coordinate the arrival of our newest fur babies.

Originally called Timbit and London Fog, we’ve since renamed them Blake and Jacquie.

These little kittens are about 4 months old. They were rescued at 3 months old from cat colony near a mechanic shop on Weston Rd. Once they were rescued, they lived with another ACR volunteer for about a month while they were getting back into full health. When they were ready to get more socialization, they moved in with us.

Because they spent so much of their early lives outside, this brother and sister pair were quite afraid people when they first moved in. Fortunately, they fell in love with Riker immediately, and he’s helped them become comfortable in our home.

Now, 4 weeks later, they’re becoming more sociable by the day.

Despite their initial unwillingness to get up close and personal with us, these kittens are adorable.

Blake has a bold and curious little personality. It’s clear that he was adept at living on the streets, because he has a keen nose for food. He knows how to open a pizza box, and more than once we’ve seen him rooting through the garbage.

Jacquie is much more shy than Blake, though she loves to play, and loves to find a comfy spot to nap. She’s curious, but likes to let Blake lead any new adventures.

Both of these little kittens are lively and loving. The spend their mornings and evenings chasing each other around our home, and spend all day cleaning each other, and napping together.
