Before the holidays, you may have seen the push for cat adoptions out of the SPCA Valleyfield. With the hustle and bustle of the holidays at a close – now is an ideal, stress-free time to bring a feline into the fold. There are still about 125 cats to adopt out before January 31st. The SPCA Valleyfield are currently waiving the adoption fees for all cats over a year old that are already sterilized. All cats under a year old are 50$ with a 100$ deposit for the sterilization (which is done for free by their vet and then refunded upon proof of completion).
Jessica has been looking to adopt a cat for quite a while. When she saw the desperate situation at SPCA Valleyfield, she decided it was time to pay them a visit and meet some fabulous felines! Not only that, she ended up with a new roomie. Here’s what Jessica had to say:
I took a seat on the floor and waited to see which cats would come towards me.
He slept in a basket on the table and didn’t even flinch when I spoke or moved around the room to greet all the potential candidates.
When he finally opened his eyes and realized that I was looking for a friend to take home with me, he made sure that I noticed him and followed me around the room as close as he possibly could to make sure that I would choose him. I sat on the floor next to him and he stepped on to my lap for a cuddle.
I didn’t need much convincing but when I picked him up and he fell asleep in my arms, I knew he was the one.
I first heard about the Valleyfield SPCA adoption drive on the news and felt that I needed to do something. I’d been looking to adopt a cat for a very long time, and when I heard about their situation something inside told me that I would find my new furry friend there.
When I brought him home it’s like he had be born to live there. He made his place and now that I have Finnegan I can’t imagine my life without him. He is a sweetheart and I adore him.
