Help an SPCA kitty in pain

A rescued senior cat just wants to live her final years pain-free, but needs donations to do it.

Sugar Plum, who came to the South Okanagan/Similkameen BC SPCA branch as a stray, has entropin of the eyelids. This means her lids curl inwards, causing her lashes to scrape against her eyeballs whenever she moves them.

"This condition is constantly painful for this poor girl, who has suffered with this issue for many years, if not her whole life,” said branch manager Carolyn Hawkins. “She’s such a gentle and loving cat! Even at 11 years old, she’s still in great health and has a lot of love to give yet.”

As a non-profit organization, the BC SPCA relies on public donations, and the $1,500 in costs associated with Sugar Plum's medical care and surgery are steep.

"Even with the pain her condition causes, Sugar Plum is as sweet as her name,” Hawkins said. “She’s a lap cat through-and-through and wants nothing more than to enjoy the rest of her nine lives pain-free and cuddled up with her new family.”

To help Sugar Plum and other vulnerable animals like in the South Okanagan/Similkameen, donate online here or in person at 2200 Dartmouth Drive, Penticton.
