Gracie, Romeo, and Angel all came to the New Westminster Animal Shelter together. They were very loved by their owner, who had them since they were kittens. But due to “some challenges” that person could no longer care for the animals properly and they ended up in shelter.
To honour their previous owner’s wishes, staff would like to see the bonded trio be homed together.
Here’s a little bit about them. Angel, a big, handsome flamepoint Siamese mix, is the oldest at five years old. He is described as very cuddly and likes to chat.
Gracie is a year younger. She is shy and sensitive but has started to come out of her shell at the shelter. She is now starting to explore, play and seek attention from staff.
Romeo is the baby of the group, at three years old. He is a handsome “black panther,” says staff, who say he is friendly and playful and loves being around people.
The ideal home for the cats is one without other children or other pets, like cats and dogs. Because of Gracie’s timid nature, it’s preferred they are homed somewhere that isn’t too busy.
Their adoption fee collectively is $352. All cats have had recent veterinary checks, including bloodwork and urinary tests.
The New Westminster shelter is currently closed to the general public during COVID, but applicants you can schedule a meet-and-greet by appointment. If you are interested in adopting, submit an application form through its website.
The facility also has a number of adoptable cats and other animals looking for homes, including two dogs, very cute bunnies, cats, a guinea pig and a rat.
