Bethany was surrendered to the East Kootenay Branch of the BC SPCA by her owner in mid-January. The 8-month old kitten, who has been suffering with a broken leg that healed incorrectly, needs surgery and the organization is trying to raise the funds.
“Since this happened five months ago, surgery is her only option, it’s been too long,” rescue’s Manager, Christy King, told Kimberly Bulletin. “Had she been able to come in right away her options might have been different, but she has gotten really used to living like that.”
“She’s a very sweet cat, and she has certainly gotten used to walking around and sort-of using her leg as a prop. She can only really move from her shoulder, not her elbow, she just holds it up when she’s walking. It’s more of a hinderance than anything.”

As of this writing, they are $995 short of their $1760 goal, with funds going towards Bethany’s surgery, care and stay at the SPCA. To make a donation, please visit the BC SPCA website.
