Would you like a new life-long friend this winter? You are in luck – every week for the rest of December I’ll introduce you to a kitty (or two) who is looking for a home! Here is Kira, a sleek beauty from VOKRA!
Kira was rescued as a homeless mother, and now with her nest empty (her kittens were all adopted to lovely homes) she is ready to be someone’s forever friend. She’s a quiet but playful kitty who craves a chill home with a window to monitor squirrels from and a lap to warm through the winter and for the rest of her life.
|Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) is a no-kill, non-profit, registered charity dedicated to the rescue of cats in the Lower Mainland that is run entirely by volunteers with no paid staff.
Instead of having a shelter, VOKRA provides over 300 individual foster homes which helps to protect the very young from colds, distemper, parasites and other transmissible illnesses. In a home environment, cats are safe and well socialized, with lots of love and attention.
VOKRA also has an extensive TNR program, which means they trap, spay/neuter, and work with community cats to control the homeless cat population.
