Staff at the BC SPCA’s Shuswap Branch are hoping you’ll be able to help them help Galaxy, a one-year-old, very friendly female black cat.
“Poor Galaxy was found in the yard of a carpentry business,” says Victoria Olynik, manager, SPCA Shuswap Branch. “She appeared to be searching for food and shelter in the area. A staff member at the carpentry business was fortunately able to coax the kitty into her car; she then brought her to us for care.”
It turned out this beautiful cat had been walking around with a broken leg, clearly snapped in half — with a few bits of bone floating around. “At this point, the only way we will be able to relieve her pain is by amputating the leg. She’s got a long way to go before she recovers, but she’s a brave girl and we know she can get through this.”
