Story
*** Adopt-a-pet requires that the fields for breed, sex, colour, and hair length be filled in on this ad, although in reality our barn cats are not all black shorthaired females. Also, corresponding photos to this ad are of feral cats that have come through our system. That particular cat may or may not be available now. Generally, suitable placements receive barn cats of whatever colour we have available. Colour requests can be made, but can't usually be met quickly, if at all. *** We operate a trap-neuter-return (TNR) program for feral cats in the Cowichan Valley, and the 'R' part of that process is very important. We cannot take feral cats away from property owners who don't want to be bothered with looking after them. We fix hundreds of ferals every year, we have no head office or shelter, we are simply a network of volunteers who work out of our own homes, and so all ferals (aside from tiny kittens) must be returned to where they came from, with an agreement with the property owner that he/she will feed them after we have 'fixed' and returned them. That being said, there are rare circumstances where a feral cat cannot go back to where it came from. For example, in 2013 we removed a champagne coloured cat from a construction site where she was living and raising kittens. She was at risk of injury if she stayed there, and after the construction company left there would be no one to continue feeding her. In this way, we are always looking for 'barn homes' where we can place a pair of feral cats to save their lives. All barn cats are spayed or neutered and have received their first shots. We always send them out in pairs so that they have a friend (and this also helps reduce the chance that they will run away later). Barn cats can be placed on a farm, acreage, vineyard, warehouse, or even a backyard. We place them free of charge, but we need to make sure of a few things first. The property owner must agree to give the cat one meal of cat food every day and fresh water, forever. The cats will still take care of the rodents in your yard as you want them to. Starving cats are so desperate for a meal that they don't make good mousers. So a meal a day is essential. The cats must be able to get out of the wind and the rain. We can provide you with a Styrofoam cat shelter so that they stay snug. We also need to make sure that the home is not located on a busy road where it is likely that the cats will be run over. We always ask about dogs, as it is upsetting when we hear that barn cats ran away from their new home on account of a dog's presence (not necessarily because the dog was badly behaved, but simply because feral cats are scared of dogs). Generally, dogs are not suitable to have on the same property as barn cats. A very mellow, sluggish-type dog that is disinterested in cats can be okay. The cats must be in lockdown in an escape-proof holding space for one month so that they get used to you, their new feeder, and learn that this is their new home and food comes from you. This space can be a workshop, tack room, garage, outbuilding, etc., and if you don't have something along those lines then we can loan you an extra large wire dog kennel to keep the cats in for the month. If the shed or similar space is quite small and the cats are at risk of bolting past when the door is open, the wire kennel will be needed. After the month of lockdown, the cats can be released outside, and they should stick around. Barn homes are very, very useful to our work. If you can meet the requirements outlined above and are willing to take on a couple of barn cats who will provide you with environmentally friendly, non-toxic rodent control, we would love to hear from you.

Story
Meet Armani, a distinguished tuxedo cat with a name as fancy as his appearance. Armani came to us as a stray and is now adjusting to the new experiences of shelter life. This gentle soul is quite shy and needs a bit of time to come out of his shell, but his sweet nature shines through.Armani has previously lived with other cats and would likely do well with a confident feline friend who can help him build his confidence. Though nervous, Armani is making great progress in his foster home-he's started eating in front of his foster mom and even played with a toy for the first time!Armani would thrive in a patient and understanding home that offers him the time and space he needs to feel safe and secure. He'd love a home with safe outdoor access, like a catio, where he can enjoy watching the birds and the world go by.If you're looking for a sweet, shy companion who needs a little extra love and patience, Armani could be the perfect addition to your family.

Feisty calico cat owners unite! We have just the cat for you! Bean is an almost 7-year-old calico cat with stunning markings and a strong spirit. Bean has some cattitude, and will let you know when she's had enough pets and attention! She takes a few days to become comfortable with new people and surroundings, but once she is comfortable with you, her sweet side truly shines! She loves rolling around on her side and meowing (loudly!) for your attention!She would thrive in a quiet, adult-only home with an experienced cat parent who can read feline body language. During her adjustment period, Bean likes to hide in tight spaces and may swat or growl.We are hopeful that now that she's had her dental surgery that she will find the perfect loving home! Resorptive lesions may continue to develop throughout her life, so her ideal adopter would be someone able to monitor and manage her dental health.Ready to give Bean the peaceful and loving home she deserves? Apply now and be a part of her journey to better health and happiness! She may get along with your resident cat with a slow introduction.

Say hello to Cedar!!!If you're looking for a big boy cat with all the typical orange kitty charm, Cedar is your man! Cedar is a chill, relaxed kitty looking for his forever home (and forever couch to lay on!!) He's had a bit of a rough life prior to coming to the BC SPCA, coming into our care with a broken jaw! So he is ready to relax, and be spoiled!!!!Cedar love comfy beds, being brushed, cheek scratches, and belly rubs.Because of his recent jaw surgery, Cedar is on a strict wet food only diet that will need to be kept up until he has the all clear from the vet, which will likely be in a few months. Cedar is looking for a foster-to-adopt situation until his jaw is fully healed!Because he will need some follow up treatments and vet check-ups we will be prioritizing local adopters or those who will be able to get him to and from his appointments at a local vet in Duncan!If Cedar sounds like the perfect boy for you, please come into the Duncan SPCA shelter to meet him during open hours or submit an application for him here:https://spca.bc.ca/survey/cat-adoption-application-cowichan/ Primary Color: Orange Tabby Weight: 4.42 Age: 6yrs 0mths 2wks

Story
Meet Ghost, a mysterious 2-year-old grey feline seeking a patient and loving forever home. This gorgeous girl may be shy at first, but once she warms up, she's all about affection, especially those irresistible cheek scratches. Obsessed with freeze-dried fish and chicken, Ghost enjoys rolling over and making biscuits in contentment. She arrived as a stray with an unknown past, so she's looking for a calm and understanding family who can give her the time she needs to feel secure. While she could potentially bond with other feline friends, she'll need a gradual introduction. Currently, she's unavailable for walk-in meet and greets, but if you're interested in giving Ghost the loving home she deserves, please follow the link below to submit your adoption application. Let's make Ghost's dreams of a forever home come true!https://spca.bc.ca/survey/cat-adoption-application-cowichan/ Primary Color: Grey Weight: 2.77 Age: 2yrs 0mths 3wks
