balcony in Vancouver

The BC SPCA is reminding pet guardians who live in high-rise buildings of the risks that face their animals after a gruesome injury. A cat named Squeakers fell from a six-storey balcony in Vancouver and as a result, broke both of her front legs.

She is currently being cared for at the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch.

“Squeakers will need to have plates and pins inserted into her front legs to make sure her legs heal properly,” says SPCA Vancouver branch manager Jodi Dunlop.

“Pet guardians should ensure balconies are enclosed so animals can’t fall through the bars or off the railing and all open windows in the home should have screens”.

The BC SPCA estimates that medical bills and other associated care for this cat will cost about $6,800.

Squeakers will spend at least two months recovering in SPCA care before she’s ready for adoption.
