Say hello to Miss Cabbage! This fabulous feline was surrendered into our care, and has slowly built some great friendships with staff and volunteers. Upon arriving here, we noticed poor Cabbage had some hair thinning and seemed to be itchy throughout her body. After a trip to the vet, we’ve determined she has some food and skin sensitivities, but with a special diet she’s already feeling much better. Cabbage is a big fan of showing her affection by rubbing against your legs. Petting can be a bit much for Cabbage in large doses, as her skin was previously so sensitive from the allergies, that touching caused physical discomfort and pain. She’s currently on a medication to help relieve any itching, and adopters are encouraged to work alongside their vet in the future if Cabbage shows any discomfort later on in life. She’s looking for a calm, adult home where she can be the queen of the castle and the guard cat of the window!
In order to protect the health of our staff, volunteers and members of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made changes to our adoption process.
1. Submit an application: spca.bc.ca/adoption/application-forms/
2. Staff will contact you to set-up an appointment to come in for a visit!
Thank you for continuing to help animals find loving new homes! This enables us to keep caring for new animals at risk, even with limited staffing.
