Sidney was a beautiful young cat who came into the BC SPCA Surrey Branch when she was picked up as a stray in September 2011. It was very unfortunate that Sidney had no forms of identification on her as it made it impossible for anyone to locate her owners. She was held in hopes someone would come claim her, but when they didn’t she went to a local veterinarian to be spayed and tattooed.
Sidney was such a delight to have at the shelter; she was affectionate and well mannered. She loved any attention you could muster and was always happy to follow you around to see if you had any more in you. Sadly it took almost two months before Sidney found the perfect family for her.
Hi, my name is Brooke. My boyfriend and I adopted Sidney from the Surrey SPCA on December 16, 2011. When we first met Sidney at the SPCA she was incredibly affectionate and the staff at the SPCA said that she would be a cat that required a lot of attention. We wanted a cat that was very affectionate but also independent and were worried that Sidney would not play by herself. But that did not stop us from adopting her.
When we brought Sidney home she immediately felt comfortable in our home. She explored our house for hours. We have had Sidney for a few weeks now and she continues to be a great addition to our family. She is a very curious, independent, and adventurous cat. If any door or cabinet is left open, Sidney is in it. If something can be climbed or attempted to be climbed (the walls) she will try.
She loves to run throughout the house and play with her toys. Most of all, she is a very loving cat who likes to cuddle. She is the perfect balance between independence and affection and we look forward to many more years with her.
We’re so happy to know that Sidney is now where she was always meant to be; warm and comfy in a loving home. Thank you to Brooke and family for making adoption your first option.
