Cat Sanctuary


Pretty little black Vicki is sometimes referred to as “Vicki from Vernon” after the rather unusual story of her arrival.

Around two years ago, when a truck which had been loaded in Vernon arrived in Richmond for unloading, a young black cat was found inside. She was brought to RAPS and efforts were made to find out who she belonged to, but to no avail. And so the cat sanctuary became her home.

For the first year she was at RAPS, Vicki was quite shy and could most often be seen camped out on top of the cages where she could safely stare at us without any of us being able to get near her. In the last eight months to a year though, she’s really started to come around. Now she’s a sweet girl who loves her cuddles.
