Meet the Cats

Click on an image below to learn about our adoptable, new, resident and alumni cats.  Or, for more pictures and videos, go to the Facebook group 'Friends of The Cats of Paint Lake'.

Our adoptable cats change frequently; even if you don't see your 'match' below, contact us to start the conversation about a future adoption.

These cats are ready for their forever home.  If you're interested in adopting a cat, please contact us.

New Cats on the Block
These cats aren't ready to be adopted yet but may soon be available. Stay tuned!

Resident Cats
These cats live with us at the Rescue. You may see them hanging around if you visit! If you'd like to sponsor one of these sweet cats, please contact us

These cats have either moved on to their adoptive families, or gone missing from our original feral colony group. You're welcome to read their stories!

Sponsor a Friend

Sponsor the sweet cat you like best (it’s ok to play favourites!).  Some of our cats stay at the rescue for longer periods of time than others – this may be due to, for example, extra time needed to unlearn feral behaviour and to learn to socialize with people if they’ve been in the wild for some time, or because of medical issues.  You may have seen multiple updates on some of them on our Facebook group, Friends of The Cats of Paint Lake, or information here on the website under New Cats on the Block or Resident Cats.  Should you wish to sponsor one of these cats, please make a donation via e-transfer directly to, and add a note to specify which cat you are sponsoring. Sponsor the sweet cat you like best.

We, and the cats, appreciate any donation you are able to make.  Thank you so much!
