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: Annie Lennox, Davie Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Pat Benatar, and the Feline Formerly Known as Prince
Purrfession: Tribute acts
We're seeking: a manager
Physical description: We're all androgynous
Want kids? But we're the kids in America. (Whoah.)
Smoke: It gets in your eyes.
Faith: As a wise man once said, ya gotta have faith, a-faith, a-faith (then again, he shook his ass—some mistakes were built to last)
Our purrsonalities: Annie finds there's always a cat playing with her heart, David is a spacey oddity, Freddie is just a poor boy who needs no sympathy because he's easy come easy go, Pat likes to give everything her best shot, and Prince enjoys going crazy
Our conversational interests: debating about who's that girl running around with you, how to pronounce Prince's symbol, debating who wants to live forever
Our hobbies: doing the magic dance, weather forecasting (here comes the purple rain again), listening to radio ga ga (and radio goo goo)
Our likes: being empowered cats dancing in the streets with an affirmative and collaborative group dance (because felines are doing it for themselves), short shorts and raspberry berets (the kind you find at a second-hand store—smash!) on men, sweet dreams, getting to the church on time
Our dislikes: being under pressure (but singing about it is okay), another hero beyond the Thunderdome, dogs named Gowan or Luba, the lady in red
Our motto: We are the champions!
Our expectations of a relationship: Somebody (somebody), somebody (somebody) to love
