On October 31st, 2016 SCARS got the call for another animal in need of refuge. A cat was found abandoned and injured. Although it was advised to euthanize this scruffy old cat, a dedicated SCARS volunteer took him to their emergency vet where he underwent surgery for his ‘cloudy’ eye. The results determined that on top of all his visible exterior injuries, he has a heart murmur and is FIV positive.
We got our little Henry on November 19th, 2016. When we first picked him up, he was still pretty beat up. With a stitched-up eye, he explored his new house with caution. At first he was very skittish, with all loud noises causing him to seek cover. After a few days he was comfortable enough to hang out in the same room as us. His favourite part of hanging out with us was laying underneath the Christmas tree. Now that the tree is down, he has found a new hang out….not the new bed we bought him but the box we took home from Costco. His stiches are out, his facial hair has grown back, and he’s become the king of the house. Apparently, he was raised with no rules; it doesn’t matter what item of furniture it is, Henry will walk on it and claim it as his own. He has got as much ‘cat-i-tude’ as a new kitten. He loves to play with any of his toys, as well as any of ours. He is the best roommate we could have ever asked for.
I’m a Sanctuary Animal
What’s a sanctuary animal? Sanctuary animals are permanent wards of SCARS due to medical conditions or behavioural issues and we are not likely to ever find an adoptive family.
SCARS is committed to giving these animals a home and the love, care and attention they deserve! We house them at our two main intake facilities.
We look to businesses to sponsor Sactuary Animals to help us offset the cost of housing them.
