Meet Elton (& Mel)
Mel and Elton are a super sweet bonded pair of siblings. This adorable duo are very easy-going and although they can be easily startled by loud noises, they are friendly and sweet even from the first moment you meet them. They both purr as soon as you touch them and love to be petted and held. They have the silkiest soft black coats and love to cuddle up with you when you read or watch TV. They are quiet, gentle cats and do a wonderful job of keeping each other occupied. They would be best suited to a quieter home and someone who is home a lot would find them to be the absolute best company you could ask for.
***In order to protect the health of our staff, volunteers and members of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made changes to our adoption process.
1. Submit an application: spca.bc.ca/adoption/application-forms/
2. Please note we may receive multiple applications for one animal. Staff will contact the first suitable applicant to set-up an appointment to come in for a visit!
❤️ Thank you for continuing to help animals find loving new homes! This enables us to keep caring for new animals at risk, even with limited staffing.
