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.

Wesley is thought to be the brother of Holland. Both cats were trapped near the home of a woman who'd been putting out food for stray and feral cats in her neighborhood until she passed away and the cats had to be relocated.

When Holland was trapped, Wesley stayed by her cage and didn't want to leave her. He was too frightened stick around when RAPS people came too close, though, and it took them some time to trap him. Eventually, they were successful and the two cats were reunited at the sanctuary.

Wesley and Holland
Only around a year old, Wesley can apparently be friendly with people he's had a chance to get used to. I'm unfortunately not one of them (yet), and so my photos tend to show a less than happy boy,
