In honour of International Cat Day — that's today (Monday, Aug. 8), for those who weren't in the loop — we're offering a special shoutout to the feline inhabitants of the New Westminster Animal Shelter who are awaiting their fur-ever homes.
For those who've been hankering to welcome a kitten into the household, the shelter has a litter listed on Petfinder. The five, adorably dubbed the "Breakfast Litter," come bearing the names of Pancake, Waffles, Egg, Bacon and Sausage.
Pancake is a black medium-haired female kitten, and the others are males: Waffles is a grey/silver short-hair, while Egg, Bacon and Sausage are all black short-hairs.
The kittens are listed as "friendly, affectionate, playful and curious" and will do well in homes with other cats.
Also up for adoption is Zayn, a black, short-haired male adult cat, who doesn't want to be in a home with children but who is gentle, quiet and affectionate, according to his listing.
The New Westminster Animal Shelter is at 420 Boyne St. in Queensborough.
