Adopted: September 2, 2016

Kilo was rescued as a stray and taken to the
BC SPCA South Okanagan/Similkameen Branch
when he was just one month old.

Kilo’s mother had been abandoned at a vacant property when she was pregnant. She had a litter of kittens there and Kilo was one of them.

Once rescued, Kilo thrived in care. When he was old enough, Kilo was placed for adoption where he was discovered by his new guardians who were more than happy to take him home to become part of the family.

Kilo has now been in his new forever home for three months and his guardians have sent in this note to keep us updated:

Kilo is a spunky cat with a lot of energy. He is named Kilo to represent the Indigenous name Ki-Low-Na. Kilo is a very vocal kitty. He loves greeting us with a lot of meows.

We have had many, many laughs watching him play. Indeed, many videos and photos have been taken of this model kitty. We have loved watching him grow, attain more motor skills, and jump to higher heights.

When Kilo is not running around and playing with his toys, he is a cuddly limp noodle. When he's sleepy, he molds into the funniest positions typically on our chest; he makes for a lovely scarf.

Kilo has quite the routine. He likes to nap a lot throughout the day and in the late evening, but as soon as it's time for us to go to bed, he is wide awake and plays with our feet under the blankets. Eventually, he realizes we are asleep and doesn’t bug us again until around 6:00 am when he gives us kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.

It is funny how persistent he is in showing his affection. After gently pushing him away many times, Kilo cuddles in between us until our morning alarms go off.

Thanks to the BC SPCA for keeping Kilo safe and healthy before we came to adopt him. We know he has found his forever home.

We’re so happy to hear that Kilo is growing up well in a loving home. Thank you so much for making adoption your first choice and giving Kilo the chance to be the well deserved center of attention.
