Van City Kitty: Pongo


A new kitty twice a week! Yup, we want YOUR cat photos and stories! Click here to find out how your cat can appear on Van City Kitty.

Meet Pongo, submitted by VIA reader Landon Dix. I can’t figure out if the grad photo is supposed to be ironic or not, which might speak to my advanced age? Anyway, without further adieu, Pongo!

Name: Pongo
Breed/Colouring: Persian/beige
Hood: West Vancouver
Habits: Looking completely amazed by everything around him. His eyes popping out at every movement and sound. He has a tendency to run into things around corners, and has a flat face to prove it.
Hangouts: On the floor beside the cat basket, or behind the fish tank.
Other info: This cat is a well-known face at Artona for his Grad 2011 photo shoot.
