Looking for forever home; Kamloops SPCA pet of the week

November 18, 2018 - 4:13 PM

KAMLOOPS -  This cat came to the Kamloops SPCA when he and a group cats were left behind after their owner moved away.

Badger was very scared and fearful initially and has been in foster care to help improve his confidence and socialization with people, a media release says.

Badger takes a while to get used to new situations and people but once he likes you he really enjoys his pets and cuddles and will follow you around the house chatting. He can be a bit of a talker and would enjoy having long conversations with you about your day.

Badger likes to have hiding areas to feel safe in the beginning but his curious side wins out and he loves exploring and can be a little mischievous. He's quite fun and goofy once his fear subsides.

If you are patient, gentle and live in a quiet home, this cat will certainly come out of his shell for you and be an entertaining housemate.

Badger would do best in a home without any children running around since fast movements and loud noises may scare him. He may swat or growl if he gets really scared. He needs a cat savvy guardian willing to continue working on his fearfulness and bring out his loving side. Back scratches are a good start. 

Though Badger came in with many other cats he would potentially do best in a home as the only pet as he can be a bit of a bully with other felines and start fights.

For more information about Badger contact the staff at the Vernon SPCA. His animal ID number is 471894.

Visit the shelter's webpage for more information such as location, adoption fees and hours of operation.
