The Critteraid Animal Sanctuary in Summerland looking for home for a street cat they rescued

Rough start for loving cat

Casey Richardson

Kiwi the cat has had a rough start to life, but the Critteraid Animal Sanctuary in Summerland knows he's ready to settle in with a loving family who can handle a special needs cat.

“Kiwi unfortunately came to us as many pets do from the streets and being out in the cold and un-neutered, he really did have it quite rough,” Critteraid Animal Director Jess Byer shared.

The three-year-old cat unfortunately has gotten some negative behaviours towards things that he gets upset by.

“So we're looking for a family that has cat experience and would be able to take the time and patience to spend time with this amazing cat. He's very loving, he's very kind, he just is not good with situations that he is reactive to."

Kiwi could need to go to a home with no young kids, no cats and no dogs. Older children that are used to cats would be fine.

“He's super loving, he seeks out attention every chance he gets,” Byer added.
