Pocket & Samson

Pocket and her brother samsom were found by a good Samaritan in Duncan as 2 week old babies.  They were found outside with no mama.  Although the kind people who found them waited for 6 hours, no mama returned.  We took these two into care at 2 weeks and bottle fed them.  They are both now old enough and large enough to be put up for adoption.  Their time in care has been fairly uneventful with no major issues.  They eat well from the bottle and transitioned nicely to wet food at around 5-6 weeks. 

Pocket Girl DOB May 4, 2023 (11 weeks old)

Pocket can be both very affectionate but also an independent kitten.  When we aren’t home she prefers to sleep in a cozy place (a cat hide or a cat tree would be perfect).  She has had one vaccine already and is booked for her spay in August but she is ready to go.  She does love to eat and is a fairly “hefty” girl.  She won’t have any issues with being a picky eater in her life.  She does love to play and would benefit from another cat in her home, but she is not super bonded with her brother.  So they can be separated.

Samson Boy DOB May 4, 2023 (11 weeks old)  

Samson is a little more clingy than Pocket.  He is very affectionate and when you come into the room he will immediately demand your attention.  He loves to talk to you and prefers to sleep right on top of me.  He adores pats and attention and will quickly abandon his sister for a human friend.  But once he’s had his fill of affection he will seek out a cat friend to play with.  He has had one vaccine already and is booked for his neuter in August but is ready to go.  He does love to eat but can be picky.  He won’t handle changing food easily so if you want to transition to another food you’ll have to do it over a period of time.  But he does love treats so that can be helpful.  He does love to play and would benefit from another cat in his home, but he is not super bonded with his sister.  So they can be separated.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
