RAPS is short for Regional Animal Protection Society, a registered charity and operator of a sanctuary which houses and cares for nearly 500 homeless or abandoned cats in Richmond, BC, Canada. The Neko Files is a celebration of the sanctuary and all those who live and work there.

Maddy came from Princess Street in Steveston, living with around 20 other cats in the same feral colony that Prince came from.

When I came across her sitting with a number of shy cats on top of the cages in the newcomers' area at the sanctuary, it didn't occur to me she might be tame. And it didn't take her long to set me straight on that one, dancing, preening and generally showing off to get - and keep - my attention.

Leslie agrees that she's "super sweet" and adds that "besides liking people, she has a tabby boyfriend who is rarely away from her side."
Sounds like one well-adjusted kitty!

  1. If you feed her a plate of mushy food up top.
    Eventually...and maybe her and her boyfriend will come down and let you pet them properly.
    I'm still holding out for the boyfriend but Maddy will allow a ground level pet session about once a month.
