Whiskers (II)

Whiskers originally came from the Burnaby SPCA. Like Sophie and George, she was adopted from RAPS by Ruth, one of our volunteers. When Ruth passed away not long ago, Whiskers and her housemates were brought back to the cat sanctuary.

Like the other cats with whom Ruth had shared her home, Whiskers is a delightful cat and very adoptable. When I visited with her on Monday, she was purrs and gentle rubs and cuddles.


  1. Awww she kinda reminds me of a kinder and gentler Rita

    1. I know what you mean. She's got that super thick coat like Rita used to as well.

  2. Whiskers is not yet comfortable being free to roam around in the Moorehouse. He usually hides behind the rocking chair or under the table in one of the fabric kennels. His coat is suffering terribly from lack of brushing as it is so thick. I try to give him a good brush on Sundays but if anyone can spend the time to groom him, he loves being brushed and I'm sure he would really appreciate it.
