Thanks to the arrival of the city’s first cat café, Vancouver’s feline population have attracted plenty of interest of late. But don’t worry if you weren’t able to get your hands on one of the Catfe’s in-house kitties, there’s still plenty of cats out there that need a loving home.
Here’s a look at 12 adoptable sweeties that are currently available at VOKRA. By adopting instead of buying from a pet store or breeder, you are helping to control the pet population while making room for other cats in need.
Adoption fees include spay/neuter, tattooing, flea treatment, first shots and a checkup.

This mother-daughter combo are looking for an extra patient and loving home. Gabrielle (black) has a condition called cerebral hypoplasia, which makes her a little unstable on her paws and wobbles.

Tilly is very affectionate and she loves head and cheek scratches.
Jackie and Jordyn are a bonded pair of sisters looking for a forever home together. Jackie’s a shy, cautious cat but she’s also full of energy and will play with any toy until it’s time to either sleep or eat. Jordyn’s adventurous and free-spirited and loves to explore every corner. She’ll also jump up and run to you when food is served.
Little G (grey) and Fantom (black and white) were born outside to a feral mom so they had a rough start in life. They’ve both learnt to trust people but can be shy with strangers. But when this special pairs gets to know you they love to cuddle and Fantom even gives kisses.

One of Billy Raphael’s favourite pastimes is sitting on the windowsill and keeping an eye on what’s happening outside. He’s also very affectionate and loves cuddles and playtime.
Nala and Rainbow were rescued together. They love playing with the cat dancer and laser pointer, eating treats and being brushed. They’re also huge fans of horizontal scratch posts and catnip and enjoy sleeping together in the same bed, couch or in front of the window.
