Oak and Birch are slow to warm up to new people but once you gain their trust, they welcome pets. Birch will even wind himself between your legs until you crouch down to pet him. Oak especially loves chin scratches. They’re both treat motivated and will run over when they hear the treat bag. You’ll never find these brothers far apart, if they aren’t naming together you’ll find them chasing after one another or playing with their catnip toys.

*Oak and Birch are startled by fast movements and loud noises and are best suited to an adult-only home or a home with teen-aged children who have previous experience with cats. They will need a quiet and calm environment with adopters who are willing to continue his socialization.

Oak and Birch are available for adoption on a foster-to-adopt basis due to ongoing health concerns. Please send an email to to learn more.

The Avery Foundation is a foster-based rescue that helps stray cats and dogs in need in and around the Ottawa area. All our cats and dogs that are adopted out are spayed/neutered and have had their core vaccinations. Our adoption process involves an application; reference checks, interview, and home visit prior to placement. If you’re interested in adopting, please apply online at:
