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.

Jessie is another mama cat who ended up at RAPS after being surrendered to the No. 5 Rd. shelter. Her kittens are all weaned now, but this pretty mama unfortunately had the complication of testing positive for feline leukemia. She's now living at the sanctuary, where there are facilities to look after leukemia cats.
Her markings may remind some RAPS regulars of doublewide trailer resident Jingles, but the similarity is only skin, er, fur deep. While Jingles remains a cheerfully grumpy girl much of the time, Jessie is simply cheerful. Even on first meeting she was delighted to interact and receive any cuddles on offer. A very sweet girl.
