Felindr Kittens of the Week: The Cosmic Kitties

    1 of 6 2 of 6

      Welcome to Felindr, the Georgia Straight's feline adoption web feature.   

      Each profile is of an eligible catchelor or catchelorette from VOKRA, the non-profit Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association dedicated to the rescue of cats in the Lower Mainland.

      Names: Asteroid, Cosmo, Luna, Moonshine, and Nova

      Purrfession: Astrologers, rocket scientists, and space cadets

      We're seeking: a planet to call home

      Asteroid loves hurtling through space (ie. running around the house).

      Physical description: Asteroid, Luna, and Nova are moonrock-striped; Cosmo is galactic grey; and Moonshine is black-hole ebony

      Ethnicity: aliens (that's what people keep calling us)

      Want kids? If they are mature enough to understand what we talk about (see conversational interests below)

      Cosmo re-enacts a dramatic action scene from Gravity, playing Sandra Bullock's character. "Whooooooah, whooooooooooaahhh!"

      Smoke: Oxygen doesn't exist in space so we don't know what that is

      Drink: We like drinking from the Milky Way

      Faith: We believe that, yes, there is intelligent life on planet Earth (we just haven't found it yet)

      As a moonchild, having to stay up all night long sometimes tires out Luna.

      Our purrsonalities: Asteroid shyly orbits people, Cosmo will play into deep space, Luna gently and sweetly shines, Moonshine is easily distracted—hey, did you see that shooting star?, and Nova may seem shy but can easily burst into a solar flare of fun

      Our conversational interests: how to use galactic wormholes to your advantage, using the time-space continuum to make a hyperspace jump (from furniture to window sills), debating whether the asteroid belt is really made up of Meow Mix

      Our hobbies: riding comets, scratching Saturn's rings, shooting lasers from our eyes, hanging out with Nyan Cat

      Believe it or not, Moonshine glows in the dark.

      Our likes: the Felis, Lynx, Leo, and Leo Minor constellations

      Our dislikes: Canis Major and Minor, Sirius the Dog Star

      She may appear tiny now, but Nova hopes one day to be a supernova.

      Our motto: To boldly go where no kitten has gone before

      Our expectations of a relationship: That you will be our sun and we will be your solar system
