A cat who is recovering at the Victoria BC SPCA Branch needs the public’s help to give him a leg up – or rather, two legs up – in life. Tigger, who recently came into the BC SPCA’s care as a stray in Comox, is recovering from surgery to repair both of his hind legs, which were broken.
“Tigger is doing great! He’s so affectionate – he had both the Comox vet and the local vet staff wrapped around his little paw.”
The cuddly and charming tabby, who’s approximately 10-months-old, may have been hit by a car earlier this month, Pritte Bell says. He’s recovering well after undergoing extensive surgery to fix his back legs and is exploring his new home in foster care as he heals, a process expected to take about eight weeks. The estimated cost of his medical care is $3,500.
“We just want this little guy to have the chance to live his nine lives without injury or pain, and hopefully, in a loving home,” says Prittie Bell. “His foster mom says she has never met a cuddlier cat and he loves to curl up next to her for a nap!”
If you can help Tigger and other animals like him in need at the Victoria SPCA, you can donate online or in person at the Victoria shelter, 3150 Napier Lane, Victoria.
