Young Cai just happened to be visiting the Bonaire Animal Shelter with his mom, Amanda, when we stopped by to take some photos of our “pets of the week.” What a good model he is, especially when he gets to hold one of the residents of the Cat Cage. The lucky kitty he’s holding is “Nora.”
Cat Cage Expert, Jane Madden writes about Nora: “This all white cat is Nora, sister of Nadine that you did a piece on a while ago who did get adopted. Nora is still with us and is just as sweet, if not sweeter, than her sister was. Nora is about seven months old and a very playful young girl who screams around at 100 miles an hour playing with any toy that she can find … But…the minute you scoop her up she is a cuddly little lamb who just beams at you with her big amber eyes and purrs like a little engine. She would be a perfect fit in a home with children who want a cat to play with, or with an adult family who likes to entertain and be entertained by a wonderful pussycat.”
Nora has been checked out by the vet, has had her test for feline leukemia, worming, shots and is in perfect health. The cat adoption fee of NAƒ 75 includes all this plus sterilization. Such a deal and you have a proven healthy and social animal to bring home.
When you’re visiting Rincon Day, Friday April 30, look for the Animal Shelter stand selling all sorts of interesting “Bonaire brocante,” household items, books, and bric a brac. See you there.
