A letter from Chester

PALS are still trying to find a home for Chester, the senior cat.

  • Mar. 2, 2016 6:00 a.m.

My name is Chester. I have been diagnosed with Feline Leukemia virus. My kind, caring veterinarians tell me I seem to beotherwise in good condition, so I am happy not to be on any medications. I must confess however, to being a little overweight. Ihave nice manners, LOVE my tummy rubbed and enjoy human companionship. I now need to live indoors only and am makingthis adjustment nicely. My friends at PALS (Protecting Animal Life Society: 250-265-3792) tell me that i too deserve a safe,loving home of my own. They are in search of a compassionate person or family who are able to open their hearts and home tome. I don’t know how long my life will be, does anyone? Right now that there is time to live, I would love to share my life withsomebody very special.

Please can you help me?

With Love,
