Rookie came to the RAPS cat sanctuary at the end of April as an unneutered stray who'd been hanging around the home of volunteers Barbara and Waldi. He was found to have torn ligaments in his knee, so is doing a stint of cage rest while he heals up. This has given him a chance to get used to his surroundings at the sanctuary without being overwhelmed by too much too soon, and it's given sanctuary staff and volunteers to get to know him a little.
He seems like a very nice boy, and it sounds like he's already won himself a few human fans at the sanctuary.
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.
