Cat recovering in Comox after leg amputation

Spooky needed emergency surgery after being hit by a car

  • May. 16, 2019 1:30 p.m.

The BC SPCA’s Comox & District Branch is seeking the public’s help with medical costs for Spooky, who was hit by a car and needed emergency surgery to amputate his damaged right front leg.

“Spooky is just a great cat. He’s friendly, outgoing and has a positive attitude, which is helping him during his recovery,” said SPCA Comox & District branch manager Emily Priestley.

His medical costs are estimated to be about $1,818.

“Spooky is healthy and young. The veterinarians who cared for him knew that he would go on to live a long and healthy life on three legs,” said Priestley.

Spooky will spend the next few weeks recovering before going up for adoption.

Spooky is looking for a home where he can enjoy life in safety as an indoor cat.

To help the SPCA with Spooky’s expenses, please visit spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or visit the branch at 1668 Ryan Road East, Comox, 250-339-7722.
