Meet Cicada & Silverfish!
* We are open to looking for a foster home if you can’t commit to adopting long term, but want to help out some cats in need. These girls would benefit from socializing in a home. If you are interested in fostering these two, please contact the West Vancouver branch.
This is a duo where opposites certainly attract. Both girls were under-socialized in their original home, and came to us very scared of people. Cicada (Sick-Kay-Duh) is much more outgoing and interested in making friends with humans than Silverfish is currently. Cicada will purr and happily snack on treats, and is slowly building up how much touch she is comfortable with. We feel with time, effort, and patience Cicada will bond closely with the perfect person. Silverfish is also a very brave girl who has not always had it easy. She is still quite scared of staff and will often hide to feel safe. But boy do these two love each other. We always find them curled up together, spooning, snuggling, or affectionately cleaning each other’s faces. We know it’s going to take time and a very special home, but we’re hopeful a cat-savy person will be what they need to start blossoming and coming out of their shells.
If you are interested in meeting these two feel free to stop by from 12-3pm Tuesday to Sundays. You can also fill out an application through the website!
