Catbury, a gorgeous Main Coon feline, was approximately one year old when he was found frightened, hungry and homeless beneath a car in the parking lot of an animal clinic in Penticton.
He was brought to the BC SPCA South Okanagan/Similkameen Branch on April 13, 2010 and received some much-needed food, shelter and love.

also glad because I wouldn’t have him in my life today.
Congratulations to Catbury, Smokey and their whole family. We wish them a long and happy life together.
