Chunky Monkey got adopted!

Chunky Monkey aka “Aspen”

There’s a cat cafe around these parts that work with the SPCA to adopt these healthy, friendly, and adorable cats out to their forever homes.

A couple of weekends ago, I was hanging around the mall this cat cafe is in to kill time before a workshop and saw this massive 10 kg cat through one of their windows. I was very lucky that the cat cafe hadn’t opened it doors yet because I’m very sure I would have walked out with a third cat. Well, there’s an application process and rigorous vetting… but I know if I met him and pet him, I’d want him. So I walked away. Probably to the (unknown) relief of Tobi and Tammy who don’t have to deal with another cat sibling…

But I checked the website this morning, and adoption is pending for this fat cat.

Hurray! He’ll be going home soon and his new humans will love him so much.
