Beautiful Boo is a sweet, shy senior looking for a quiet, loving retirement home to spoil her for the rest of her life, however long that may be. Boo was found as a stray cat hiding under a c-can, severely matted and suffering from dental disease, the poor girl. Thankfully she was found and is now being spoiled but would love to find her fur-ever home.
Boo has received a haircut to get rid of all her mats and an adopter will need to be prepared to brush her long, beautiful coat when it grows back in to prevent matting in the future. This lovely lady enjoys pets and lots of attention though she may be a bit shy at first. She would really prefer a quiet, adult home without children as loud noises and lots of action can be scary for her. She would make a great companion for an adult who enjoys cuddling up on the couch and napping cozily. Senior cats are great for someone looking for a calm cat to hang out with and they have just as much love to give as a younger animal. We’re not sure if Boo has ever been around other animals before so testing and proper, slow introductions would be very important. Other animals in the home would need to be calm and not rambunctious as that would likely be too much for Boo to handle.
If you think Boo is the one for you, apply today to come and meet this beauty!
**BOO IS CURRENTLY AWAITING HER DENTAL SURGERY AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE ADOPTED UNTIL AFTER SHE HAS RECOVERED. LOCAL ADOPTERS MAY HAVE THE OPTION TO FOSTER TO ADOPT UNTIL SHE IS READY.
An adoption counseling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal.
Please note due to the current COVID-19 pandemic our adoption process has changed. Please visit our website https://spca.bc.ca/adoption/how-to-adopt/ for more information. All adoptions are by appointment only once we have received an application.
***Due to the high number of applications we receive for our animals, we will only be contacting potential adopters to further review their application. We are not able to call all applicants.***
