Bark came to VPAS as a young, pregnant kitty. She was named Bark because her personality reminded everyone more of a dog than of a cat. She was extremely friendly, followed everyone around where ever they went, and just wanted to make everyone smile. She gave birth to a litter of healthy kittens, and even served as a surrogate mother for an orphaned kitten. Bark was a favourite among our volunteers, and we were all very disturbed when she became ill one day shortly after weaning her kittens. Although the veterinarians did everything they could to save her, Bark succumbed to a viral infection and crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Although this young mother lived a short life, her legacy lives on in her 5 healthy kittens, and 1 surrogate kitten.
