An Unusual Rescue Story


VOKRA volunteers work tirelessly and always hope for a happy ending, and here is such a story.

Yesterday a VOKRA foster cat named Tofu, a siamese/manx mix, was reunited with her owner in San Fransisco.

Tofu went missing in September when her owner left her in the care of his ex-roommates in Burnaby while he was in Toronto on an internship. According to PetSearchers Canada, this is the number one reason pets go missing - a change in caregiver or sitter.

Tofu was found cold and hungry under a bush by two wonderful ladies who coaxed her into their place. They have been fostering Tofu for VOKRA over the past 3 months. Luckily, the owner found the foster's ad posted on Craigslist just before it expired and was very relieved to find Tofu in time!

Tofu's owner had been planning on moving once he was settled in a job. Over the past few months, he has been arranging with the World Wide Travel Company and a VOKRA volunteer to co-ordinate Tofu's move to San Fransisco where he is residing now.

Tofu will be an inside cat. Tofu's owner has fully paid all costs for her and has given VOKRA a donation. He wants to thank VOKRA for rescuing her and is elated having her back. So, a happy ending for Tofu, who's actual name is Coco :)
