Meepos was trapped on Mitchell Island in Richmond. When he first arrived at the sanctuary in mid February, it was hard to tell whether he was feral or tame. Before long, though, he stopped leaving any doubt that he was indeed quite tame.
Now he's gotten comfortable enough with us that he likes
nothing more than to wriggle upside-down in his cat bed while getting
his tummy rubbed.
I hear he could be a bit nippy at times when he first started allowing
pats, but he might have gotten over this. So far I've had nothing but
hand-holding and kisses from him, and the only claws he's showed me are
from kneading the air as he purrs.
RAPS is short for Richmond 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.
