Schnapps is a nine-month-old, orange-and-white neutered male who was brought to the BC SPCA Kamloops Branch with forty other cats on March 12, 2013.

Rescued from a horrific hoarding situation, Schnapps at just five-months-old was severely under socialized when he came to us and it took a long time for him to become comfortable in the shelter environment.

After many long trust building weeks, he and the other kittens he came in with  finally felt confident enough to be put up for adoption.

As time passed, the others were adopted but Schnapps’ shy nature made him seem aloof which meant he was passed over time and again while his more outgoing siblings were adopted around him.

July 12, 2013 marks Schnapps’ four month anniversary with the Kamloops SPCA and we think that’s just too long for a cat to be waiting for his furr-ever home!

He can sometimes get scared of quick movements or loud noises, and will sometimes swat when feeling uncomfortable so we are looking for a quiet, patient home with no small children.

He is mature for his age, but still shows some kitten playfulness when given the right toys and can’t seem to resist a bit of string.

He did live with dogs in his previous home, but since he has been in shelter and away from dogs for almost half his life, he will need to be slowly reintroduced into life with dogs.

If Schnapps sounds like the companion for you, please contact the BC SPCA Kamloops Branch at (250) 376-7722 or
