Meet Bitsy. When you walk into the cat sanctuary of Richmond Animal Protection Society, this black and white kitty will surely catch your eyes. She sits on her bottom with her hind feet up like a little person. Bitsy was paralyzed at birth, but she never thinks she is any different.

“Bitsy was found abandoned in a cardboard box down by the river and is paralyzed from the waist down. Bitsy can use her litter box but does sometimes have accidents,” said RAPS. They plan to eventually have her fitted for wheels when she gets a bit older.

Though Bitsy moves around a little different from other cats, she thinks she’s purrfect and is always happy to see people and greet them with her adorable sitting pose when they come into the room. She is a little star at her shelter and getting plenty of love.

Richmond Animal Protection Society in British Columbia, Canada has a beautiful cat sanctuary that homes hundreds of cats rescued on city streets, in alleys and industrial areas. The organization was founded by a group of cat lovers back in 1989. They trapped cats, spaying and neutering them, and providing veterinary care.

The cat sanctuary provides a comfortable and safe permanent home for more than 800 animals. Cats can freely roam in a fully fenced backyard and lounge comfortably by the well, on a deck, on a bench or simply on the ground. The cat sanctuary is like a paradise to so many formerly homeless kitties. Volunteers have created a loving, cozy and stimulating environment that is truly a home for the animals.
