Felindr Kittens of the Week: Amelia, Ferdinand, and Marko Polo—the feline explorers

    1 of 7 2 of 7

      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: Amelia Earhart, Ferdinand Magellan, and Marko Polo

      Purrfession: adventurers and explorers

      ...or sometimes she just likes to roll around in it.

      We're seeking: someone to be our forever homebase

      Physical description: Amelia is a brave grey with stylish white accents, Ferdinand is a bold black with white markings, and Marko is a smokey black

      Having travelled to so many different countries, Ferdinand sometimes gets confused about what is appropriate—and inappropriate—in each place.

      Ethnicity: American, Portuguese, and Venetian (respectively)

      Want kids? If they want to come explore with us

      Marko Polo has many tales to tell from his travels—except that he can't talk because he's a cat.

      Smoke: We don't have time for that

      Drink: We do as the Romans do

      Amelia says, "What? A new room we haven't discovered yet? What are we waiting for?"

      Our purrsonalities: Amelia is confident and exploratory, Ferdinand loves to roam, Marko is adventurous and mischievous

      Our conversational interests: We enjoy discussing where we've been, where we'd like to go, what new areas of the house haven't been charted yet

      Ferdinand enjoys reaching out to people. Literally.

      Our hobbies: flying planes, sailing boats, discovering foreign rooms, navigating the house

      Our likes: unexplored territory, chin and belly rubs

      Marko Polo likes discovering new and unusual things—and then attacking them.

      Our dislikes: nowhere new to check out

      Our motto: To infelinity and beyond!

      Our expectations of a relationship: That we will always return to you after our voyages
