Two unusual medical emergencies have drained Quadra Cat Rescue funds.
Two homeless black and white kittens found wandering in the Pidcock Road area this summer required emergency surgery to remove an infected, deformed eyeball.
“These kittens were brought in just in time,” said Valerie van Veen of Quadra Cat Rescue. “Dogwood Veterinary Hospital checked the kittens to ensure they had a good chance of survival and performed the successful surgeries, but our fundraising hasn’t been able to keep up with the costs of these bills and our regular run of vaccinations and surgeries to fix homeless cats and kittens.”
Both kittens have recovered well from the surgery, and one has been adopted. The other is in foster care.
Quadra Cat Rescue posts photos and descriptions of cats and kittens available for adoption on its website.

Quadra Cat Rescue has fixed more than 220 cats and kittens since March 2009 – and found homes for many that turned out to be strays or abandoned.
