their mama was diagnosed with alzheimer’s and their papa was sent to a care facility. with the only family they’ve ever known gone, 3 year old hendrix + lily are now temporarily residing at the langley animal protection society, where they have been for a long 123 days.
i remember going to unlock their kennel door at the cat cottage so trav + i could photograph them, when i noticed a sign that said something along the lines of “not to be removed from kennel.” i peered inside and saw 2 sets of glowing eyes, then a little black paw ventured through the bars towards my hand. my heart hurt accepting that the little souls in there were obviously not doing well. the cat-filled environment at the cottage was stressful and ultimately, hendrix + lily were reacting to people from a place of fear.
hendrix + lily have since been moved to new digs.. the boardroom of the main building at LAPS. and they are doing a million times better! these guys have proven themselves to be absolutely lovely. both kittehhhs are actually very soft in demeanour, sweet + cuddly. they even tolerate the dogs that come for a visit while they chill in their posts.
but hendrix + lily need all of our help to find a real home. sadly, there is a stigma against black animals and they have a much lower adoption rate. it’s stupid. nonetheless, these two sweethearts have had no interest. they could go to separate homes but of course, everyone including hendrix + lily i’m sure, would prefer they be adopted together (seriously, 2 cats is not very different than 1. i promise)! if you can find a place in your hearts for these darlings, we’d seriously LOVE you. please go on and call LAPS at: 604-857-5055. if adopting either // both of these darlings is just not possible, please consider spreading the word. thank you so much!
