Dino came to RAPS as a kitten in 2003, and is one of the original Donni Derr cats.
With double hematomas that have left both ears looking crumpled and a little pink tongue that tends to stick out because he's missing teeth, Dino's looks are more endearingly quirky than classically handsome. It does make him easy to spot if you're looking for him in the front courtyard, though. Just don't expect to get too close, particularly if he hasn't met you before. This gentle boy remains a shy one.
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.
