Cats left trapped in bins

The BC SPCA’s North Cariboo animal centre is caring for nine cats found trapped inside storage bins that were left outside on a vacant property.

The agency received a call from the property manager, who heard the animals meowing from inside the bins.

The cats had been trapped for days without food or water, breathing through air holes punched in the lid. Several cats scored only one on a body condition scale of one to nine. 

“These cats were starving and matted with feces and urine. Some of the adult cats would not have lived much longer and will require a refeeding plan to slowly reintroduce their bodies to food,” says the SPCA's Alex Schare.

“Despite everything they have been through, all of the cats are vocal and friendly,” he said.
