Many times, the connection we feel with our new feline friend is instantaneous.

When Graham and his partner met Minnie, a senior kitty full of personality, at the BC SPCA Kelowna Community Animal Centre in September 2019, they couldn’t deny the pull they felt towards her.

In September 2020, Animal Control seized Hecate from a neglectful situation in Prince George. Understandably, Hecate absolutely did not trust humans at this point.
