Facts about Cypress

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 410258
  • Hair: Unknown
Cypress came to the Nelson shelter as a pregnant stray. She went to one of our foster homes where she gave birth to her 3 sweet babies. Shortly after that we had 7 orphaned 10 day old kittens brought in. We hoped that Cypress would welcome them into her new family and she did. With the help of her foster parents the amazing Cypress nursed 10 beautiful babies. Now that all of her babies have been adopted Cypress is looking for her forever home.
She is a very independent lady, curious about everything and quite sneaky, escaping out of our communal room every chance she gets! She definitely does not like dogs and fiercely defends herself even when it is not necessary. Cypress gets along with other cats but is for sure the one in charge. She is good with kids and can be playful at times. If you think you can provide the type of home that would suit Cypress come by the shelter to meet her.

Our Charter:

The BC SPCA Charter is the foundation that guides the work we do:


The world is inhabited by many species sharing a common ecosystem of air, earth, and water. We recognize and value our interconnectedness with all animals.


The BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life for the animals of the world we share.

We pledge our energies to inspire and mobilize society to create a world in which all animals, who depend on humans for their well-being, experience, as a minimum, five essential freedoms:

1. Freedom from hunger and thirst

2. Freedom from pain, injury, and disease

3. Freedom from distress

4. Freedom from discomfort

5. Freedom to express behaviours that promote well-being.
