Van City Kitty Take Us Home Edition: Adoptable Cats


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

Welcome to our new monthly Take Us Home feature on Van City Kitty, brought to you by HomeFinders Animal Rescue. Every month we will feature new cats needing homes in the Lower Mainland. Today we’d like you to meet Azlan, Queen Nara and Roxy. Won’t you consider adding one to your family today?

More photos of each cat under the cut.

Name: Azlan
About: He may be missing an eye, but he’s still a looker. Found living behind a bar on Main St, Azlan is looking for cushier digs for his retirement years. Azlan is about 10 years old, is a sweetheart, loves to purr, and looks like a lion. He’s a very dignified fellow that is on medication for an overactive thyroid gland. He loves people, is okay with other cats (maybe), and is learning about dogs.

Adopt Azlan.

Name: Queen Nara
About: Queen Nara is quite the couch potato. She’s made herself at home in her foster home, along with several other cats and dogs. She’s cuddly, beautiful, and enjoys ruling the roost. She came to a shelter thin as a stick with kittens, poor thing! Her kittens have found homes, and Nara has put some meat on her bones and now she needs a loving home. Nara is about 3 years old.

Adopt Queen Nara.

Name: Roxy
About: Roxy is another beauty with a rough past – she was a young mother who ended up being terrorized by her grown up kitten and a dog in the family that adopted her. She’s now getting some peace in a foster home with no other cats and 1 elderly dog. This sweet and loving girl would do best in a home where she can be spoiled and doted on, with no (or few) other animals. Roxy is ~4 years old.

Adopt Roxy.
