Be safe! If the cat appears injured or ill, or you think he needs help and you are trying to catch him, be safe! Frightened cats may scratch or bite. If the cat seems unapproachable, do not attempt to catch him. Call the City of Ottawa at 311 for assistance.

What’s better than one cute, cuddly kitty? Two cute, cuddly kitties! One of the strongest arguments for adopting two cats, rather than one, is simple: If you adopt two cats, you're saving two lives. The Kitten Lady has detailed some of the important reasons on her website Why Two Kittens Are Better Than One
Kittens require a lot of veterinary care in their first year of life. They need three rounds of vaccinations, deworming and to be spayed and neutered (at minimum!!). All rescue cats come fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered, additionally the rescue will have covered the cost of supplies and feeding.
A “free kitten” will cost you way more than an adoption fee ever will. In the end they are not free. 6 Reasons Why Shelter Pets Aren’t Free
A new home with new sights, new sounds, and new smells can be a scary place for young kittens, but there are things you can do to make the transition easier.
Most adult feral cats who were born and have lived on the streets cannot be tamed and will be unhappy living with humans. This is less than an ideal scenario for any domestic animal, but there is a simple way that the Rescue can help them: Trap-Neuter-Return. These cats are neutered or spayed and released back into their colonies. This program ends reproduction, stabilizes feral cat populations, improves individual cats’ lives and curbs the spread of infectious disease.
