Vela and her kitten Pyxis are two black beauties who came to VOKRA as the result of a hoarding situation. Despite having a rough start in life, these two adjusted well to foster care, having enjoyed exploring their surroundings and investigating the comings and goings of their foster home. Their first adoption fell through, but this turned out to be a blessing in disguise because they found their perfect match in Brian and Gerry.
After losing their three wonderful cats due to illness and old age in a span of only seven months, Brian and Gerry were ready to welcome new feline family members into their home. Having adopted black cats in the past, they saw Vela and Pyxis’ profiles on VOKRA’s website and knew they were the perfect kitties for them.
It’s now been one year since their adoption and Vela and Pyxis are doing well in their new home. The cats have their regular routine of 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. treat time, as well as watching the bird feeder and squirrel activities from the closed-in deck. Pyxis is the more outgoing of the two, always greeting Brian and Gerry after they return home. Vela is a little more reserved, but always welcomes a scratch or two behind the ear.
The cats have also become seasoned travellers! They recently returned from a two week RV trip to the BC Interior with Brian and Gerry. This was their fourth trip and according to Brian, “they are super travellers and campers. They of course remain in the RV and spend a great deal of time watching for wildlife at each location.”
It certainly has been a happy ending for cats and humans alike. Brian put it best when he said, “it has been a pleasure giving them a forever home and they reward us by making sure we know they are part of our family….they are truly gentle souls.”
Thank you so much Brian and Gerry for providing a loving home to Vela and Pyxis!
