Foster mom says I have the best attitude and a great outlook on life.  I absolutely love everyone.  People, dogs, cats, I do mean everyone.    I’m just a social butterfly and a happy, happy girl.  You may remember me from the Facebook stories in December.  My owner had simply moved away and neighbours were concerned that I would starve. When the nice volunteers from SCARS arrived they knew something wasn’t right.  I could stand up and walk but frequently fell over.   The volunteers took me to see the medical team at Guardian Veterinary cetner and X-rays revealed that I  had a fractured T3 vertebra.  Surgery wasn’t an option so I was moved to the Westlock Veterinary Center for some convalescence care so that I would heal on my own.  I was also diagnosed with megaesophagus, which is a generalized enlargement of the esophagus. It might be a side effect of the injury but is very managable  by  5 small meals a day. I do love my food .  I loved my time at the clinic and all of the attention that I got from the staff.  I really was sad to say goodbye to them  but I’m starting to do better and the time has come for me to start my rehab.  I’m still a little wobbly but I’m a go getter.  I’m doing great at my foster home.  I have 2 resident dogs and a foster sister to hang out and play with.  I also get lots of love from my foster parents.  I start my thereapy next week and will need to be here for a while until I start to build some mussle and get stronger.  After that, hopefully I will be able to find my forever home and start the next chapter of my life.  Foster mom will keep you updated on my progress.

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we will deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
