Cats await foster homes

More than 90 cats and kittens await Kitty Cat PALS foster homes for a human companion that can give them a home.

More than 90 cats and kittens are still waiting in Kitty Cat PALS foster homes for a human companion that can give them a forever home.

Over the past two weeks, 29 kittens have been rescued and more are waiting to be taken in as soon as foster or permanent homes are found.

Most of these kittens and cats were born in the wild or left to fend for themselves by unscrupulous people. They were caught, socialized and given the care and love they all deserve while waiting for a forever home.

In the spirit of the season, Kitty Cat PALS is offering a Winter Special to encourage individuals and families to adopt one of these furry friends. Adoption certificates are also available to those that want to take advantage of this special offer, but want to wait until after Christmas.

The adoption fee of $50 for a cat and $125 for kittens under six months of age will include the cost of the spay or neuter, first

vaccine, flea and worm treatment, Feleuk/FIV testing and an initial

health exam at one of the local veterinarians.

Cats and kittens can be seen at Bosley’s in Comox and Woofy’s on Cliffe Ave in Courtenay. Additional adoption clinics are held every Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. at both locations. In addition, food and litter are desperately needed, as the influx of kittens has left the supply shelves empty.

For more information, contact Kitty Cat PALS at 250-218-7223 or e-mail to kittycatpals@gmail.com.
