The kittens pictured above are part of a litter of four that was originally thought to be feral.  As you can see, they are definitely tame and cuddly!  They will be available for adoption soon once they are big enough to be spayed/neutered. 
CatSpan Registered Charity will be at Bosley's North Nanaimo to celebrate Bosley's National Adoption Weekend!  

When: June 11 and 12
Time: 12 pm to 3 pm
Where: 6894 Island Highway, Nanaimo

We will have fleece cat beds and toys for sale and we hope to see you there!
Adoption Showcases...

Meet soon-to-be adoptable Midnight. He is a sweet senior boy who was a homeless tomcat who showed up at someone’s door. CatSpan was called and our volunteer took him to Lighthouse Vet where it was found he had high blood sugar. Dr. Hanna kept him for a few weeks in the office, and through special food was able to bring his blood sugar to normal levels. 

Midnight is a very friendly boy, chatty, and a total love bug. He even loves being brushed and rolls over for tummy rubs. He is a very mellow boy and spends much of the day following his foster mom around, sleeping and grooming himself.

Meet adoptable Batman.  He is currently at Bosley's in North Nanaimo waiting for his furever home.  Batman is very playful and loves the laser pointer.  He is a three year old neutered male.  Batman would do best in a home without dogs.  If you are interested in adopting Batman, head down to Bosley's North Nanaimo!

Do you know what to do if your cat is lost? 

An important thing to do if your cat is lost is...get the word out there!  This can include talking to neighbours, putting up posters with a photograph of the lost cat, and contacting local social media organizations dedicated to reuniting lost pets with caregivers.  

In Oceanside, there are numerous groups with a focus on lost and found pets.  Click on the links below to view either their Facebook page or website:  

AARF - Facebook and Website
FLEC - Facebook and Website
SPCA - Facebook and Website

Another good resource when your cat is lost is this website called Cats In the Bag.  It lists general steps in finding your lost cat, in addition to more specialized search tips for indoor-only cats and shy cats.  

Another good reminder is to ensure your contact information is up-to-date with the vet clinic who did your cat's tattoo.  All ear tattoos in BC have a special code that identifies the vet clinic, animal, and year.  Your cat's tattoo contact information may be the only way to ensure your beloved cat is reunited to you!
