Mouse was a beautiful young lady when she was surrendered into the care of the BC SPCA Abbotsford Branch in March 2012. Her family had left her behind when they moved and she was soon discovered by the property’s landlord.
She was made available for adoption almost immediately, but for some reason no one seemed to want to choose her as their new family member. Mouse caught a ride on The Drive for Lives program to the BC SPCA Richmond Education & Adoption Centre with hopes of finally finding her forever home.
Within days Mouse caught the eye of a lovely family who found her very endearing. They’ve taken a quick moment away from enjoying her company to write us on how she’s been doing.
In regard to her name, we noticed on her vet record that she had a few names prior to coming here, first she was called "Meatball" (really?), then 'Moose' (I know the Maine Coon can give that impression), and then Mouse. Mouse was a cute name, and the best of the bunch, but we thought about it some more & decided to rename her.
After a long search and several days of reflection we have decided to name her Zoe. Zoe means light in Greek, and she is a ray of light. So we now have the A to Z of cats in this house.
Right from the start it was like she had been here all along. Alfie was a bit frightened for the first few days, for example when he came into the kitchen and saw her there he was startled, after all she is a little bit bigger than him. Zoe is about 14 lbs and Alfie rings in at just over 11lbs'.
Zoe is loving all the room in the house, she and Alfie are getting along very well & we love both of them.
You’re welcome to inquire at any time.
Zoe now has a fresh start at life with people who truly care about her and a fun new kitty friend to play with. Thank you to Lori and family for choosing to make adoption your first option.
