We are a husband and wife team and we rescue and rehabilitate feral/stray cats who find their way into our neighbourhood.
Oreo is 2-year-old, petite Siamese-Mix and is she is grey with white markings. Oreo has many of the traditional Siamese characteristics, such as the wedge-shaped head, beautiful almond-shaped eyes, and unusually large ears that are wide at the base and pointed at the tip. She also has minimal shedding.
Oreo is not declawed. Oreo has been to the vet for a checkup and has received a clean bill of health, in addition to Revolution flea medication and her necessary shots including FVRCP and rabies; she also tested negative for feline leukemia and worms. A medical record will be provided at the time of her adoption.
Since Oreo is a rehabilitated feral cat she will require a special home, a quiet home without any children or animals. She has a very sweet personality and she is very loving. Her natural instinct is to hide, but due to her curious nature, she is unable to stay hidden for very long. Oreo loves having behind her ears scratched and the spot above her tail; however, Oreo does not like to be picked up, nor does she like hugs or kisses, or any physical contact where you invade her “personal space.” Oreo will periodically hiss or bat (no claws) when she is scared, but it is more about how she is feeling, as opposed to trying to inflict harm. Oreo has a very quiet personality, but she loves to play with her toys. She is very gentle on carpet and furniture and she is fully litterbox trained.
Here is Oreo's Story:
In late 2015, we began to notice a little cat that would appear to feed around 10pm and then leave. We tried to make contact several times, but the little cat, whom we nicknamed “Oreo,” would run away and hide. By mid-May, Oreo began to slowly trust us enough to let us approach her.
Oreo disappeared for a few weeks the end of May only to return several weeks later with 3 little Siamese-mix kittens in tow! We rescued the litter of kittens (2 males and 1 female) at an appropriate age and found them forever homes; however, we were unable to capture Oreo until early July.
When we took Oreo to the vet, we found out that she was pregnant and was due to give birth in a few short weeks! We decided to care for her during her pregnancy and in early August, Oreo gave birth to 5 more little kittens (4 males, 1 female). At the appropriate time, we found the second set of kittens their forever homes. We were finally able to get Oreo spayed and she is now ready for continued rehabilitation in her forever home.
The adoption fee of $60 ensures that Oreo goes to a loving home and also acts as a donation to help other animals in our area that we rehabilitate and re-home. A care package will also be provided at the time of Oreo’s adoption and will include a litterbox and scoop, Oreo’s favourite toys, her blankets, and some dry and wet food. Please see the pictures and message us if you have additional questions or would like to provide a forever home.

Things you should know about buying or adopting a pet
While pet sellers can be reputable individuals or breeders who treat their animals well, the ease of selling pets over the Internet also makes it attractive to careless, irresponsible breeders and scammers. To protect yourself, you must be careful and believe only what you see and not what you are told. It is highly recommended to arrange for an inspection of the home where the pets are bred. This allows you to check that the mother and other animals are living in suitable conditions, being well cared for, and are in good health.
Remember that the Kijiji Pets section is NOT intended to facilitate uncontrolled breeding, irresponsible commercial pet trading, trade of dogs or any other animal for the purpose of fighting or stud services. Any ads that are suspected of promoting this kind of activity or reported to us will be removed. Users are responsible for adhering to the applicable conditions in relation to adopting, buying, selling or listing of an ad on Kijiji.
Kijiji encourages, where possible, the adoption of pets and encourages all pet owners to have their animals spayed or neutered as well as microchipped.
When looking for a pet, it is important to meet the breeder or seller and examine the pet before agreeing to anything. Since Kijiji is local to your community, this should be easy to arrange. Never adopt/buy a pet from someone who is unwilling to let you see how and where the animal is living!
