Tux and Mokers

Tux (the black and white male) and Mokers (the brown and white tabby female) were two of five two-day-old strays who came to the BC SPCA Cowichan Community Animal Centre with their mom on December 19, 2023.

Momma herself was only two years old and would have surely continued to give birth to many more litters of kittens in her lifetime had she not been brought in to be spayed and adopted. In our care,  all six of these felines were vaccinated, microchipped and neutered or spayed.

They spent their first eight weeks together with their mom in a series of our highly valued foster homes until they were ready to be placed in their forever homes. Savvy kitten lovers had their eyes peeled for kittens outside of the standard “kitten season” of spring and summer, and one lucky fellow jumped at providing a loving home to these two.

Here is the beginning of their story with him:

“For two weeks before I adopted them, I was constantly looking for kittens to adopt. Every day, I check the BC SPCA Adoption site.

I saw the litter of kittens they were part of and knew I had to try my best to get two of them so they wouldn’t be lonely when I was off at work. When I got the phone call, I was so happy and couldn’t wait to meet them.

On the day I met Tux and Mokers and saw them up close, I already knew I was taking them home without a second thought. They were definitely shy, adorable fluff balls.

Tux was the most brave and was exploring everything when I got them home. Mokers was really shy and unsure and was constantly hiding. I had to block off a majority of hiding spots, but I did leave a safe place for them to go to.

After less than a week Tux already left my room to explore the rest of the house. Mokers got braver and was out more too and wasn’t hiding as often. They warmed up to me quickly, which was a great sign.

Tux is the rambunctious one, always trying to cause problems. He tried chewing on cables and stuff, but I was able to stop that quickly. Mokers is the more relaxed of the two but has her playful side. She loves playing with her tail a lot of the time and is always amusing to watch.

Had a good few times where they both were sleeping beside me or in my arms while in bed. Hoping they do it more as they grow up and don’t stop enjoying cuddling.”

What a couple of cuties you picked! They sound like a perfectly matched pair and will surely provide you with years of entertainment and snuggling.

Thank you for choosing to adopt and not shop. Long life and good health to all of you!
