A pair of kittens left abandoned in a cardboard box in Blind Bay on one of the coldest days of the year now have warm homes.

Leonidas and Valour, roughly three months old, were discovered in the duct-taped box by some painters near the Blind Bay Hall. Fortunately, they were discovered before they were harmed.

The pair were taken to the Shuswap SPCA, who is investigating the case of animal abandonment.

Now, the two kittens have been adopted and have moved south to Enderby.

“We took them home on the first of February after my mother fell in love with them the day before.  After just less than a week Leonidas and Valour have made themselves right at home, alternately snuggling into various laps and terrorizing various feet,” writes Tyler Harcus in a letter to the Observer. “Thanks for bringing our attention to these two little black kittens!”

There are still many cats available for adoption at the Shuswap SPCA shelter. Contact them at 250-832-7376.
