Letters: Cat finds new home

Sooke cat fancier gives up large cat to rescue society

I unfortunately had to find a home for my 19-pound coon cat, age nine years due to health.

I contacted SAFARS and she came and picked up my cat, and said she’d find a home for him.

I was very upset having to give up my cat and she assured me he’d be well taken care of, at no charge, and she’ll find him a home.

This was on June 5, and she called me on Saturday, June 7 to tell me a couple with two children had adopted him. I was so pleased. She said, “why don’t people bring their cats to me when they don’t want them, instead of just dropping them off anywhere with their kittens?” Cats need homes and food, as we do.
