FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The BC SPCA needs the help of the community to pay for Bubbles the cat’s medical care.
A good samaritan found the injured cat and brought him to the North Peace SPCA. The organization says the stray was suffering from multiple injuries, likely from an animal attack.
The BC SPCA took Bubbles in, caring for his injuries. The worst was a badly infected bite to his left ankle that turned septic.
Bubbles will require ongoing bandage changes and medicated washes to help repair his injuries. The BC SPCA says the total cost of his care is estimated to be $2,800, and the recovery process is expected to last six weeks.
While the veterinarian indicated there will be some permanent damage to the leg, Bubbles is expected to make a full recovery and enjoy a safe indoor life.
North Peace SPCA manager Candace Bucharmer calls Bubbles “a gentleman.”
“Bubbles instantly started purring and kneading the blankets when he arrived. He’s never been aggressive to any of the staff trying to help him. It’s obvious he’s a complete sweetie and his personality will surely blossom once he feels better,” says Bucharmer.
If you can help Bubbles and other animals in need, contact the BC SPCA.
