The 5 Road PenBack about five years ago there was a sudden influx of adoptable cats to the Shelter, and staff had to make hard decisions about cats that had been there for a while without adoption prospects. A bunch of cats were moved to the Sanctuary and placed in what was then called Packers Pen – at that time the home of the remaining cats which had been trapped at the former Steveston Packers site. The resident group was aging – and in fact, in the years following, they all passed on. The 5 Road cats settled in well – there seemed to be a truce between the residents and the newcomers – and within a few years it was known to volunteers as the 5 Road Pen. Since then, we have been able to return a few of these cats to the Shelter for adoption – but there is still a core group remaining.
Adam and May are part of that core group. Both have been featured in the Neko Blog individually, but it is apparent to us that they are a bonded pair – they’re comfortable around other cats, and willing to explore independently, but they are happiest together, and often found cuddling in the same bed.
