Yap came to the RAPS cat sanctuary a number of years ago as one of a group of kittens who someone had been feeding in their yard. The youngsters (they were several months old when they were trapped) were given then names Spring, Summer, Yip, and Yap.
I had a chance to meet Yap at the end of November when he was in a cage in the singlewide after he'd had a couple of teeth extracted. He was so friendly that I wondered why I hadn't met him before.
RAPS is short for Richmond Animal Protection Society, a registered charity and operator of a sanctuary which houses and cares for more than 400 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.
