Our incredibly friendly feral kitten Kaslo has now gone to a forever home. After just four days at the No. 5 Road shelter, she was adopted along with a 5-6 year old female named Licorice. Simone, who works at both the city shelter and the sanctuary, tells me Licorice has been waiting a while for adoption – so great news that she’s found a home! As for Kaslo, it’s hard to believe that just three months ago she was living under a bush at a feeding site.
In less obviously upbeat news but every bit as much showing what RAPS is all about, longtime sanctuary resident Mousie passed away last week. This is more than a decade after the thromboembolism that could have so easily led to her being euthanized back in 2000. Now that’s beating the odds!
