This brave little survivor needs your help

The BC SPCA’s East Kootenay Branch is seeking your help with medical costs for Nacho the cat, who survived a brutal attack from another animal.

Nacho was found hiding in a Good Samaritan’s yard with multiple infected puncture wounds on his legs and body.

“Some of the punctures were so deep that they have caused nerve damage in his legs and he is struggling to walk,” said SPCA East Kootenay Branch manager Christy King.

Nacho needed surgery to clean up his wounds, antibiotics to treat the infection and is on pain control medication and will undergo physiotherapy.

This beautiful orange and white cat is about eight-years-old and can live a long life as an indoor cat. He will spend several months recovering in a foster home before he’s ready to be adopted.

“Even though he can hardly walk, Nacho just wants to climb up onto your lap. He is endlessly affectionate, and loves belly rubs,” says King. His total cost of care is $1,945.

If you can help Nacho and other animals in need at the East Kootenay SPCA, please visit spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or visit the branch at 3339 Hwy 3 & 95, Cranbrook, 250-426-6751.
