Bones: A Very Special Story

 


Bones the cat was shot in the head and lived for weeks with a resulting infection. After finding Bones abandoned and shot in an alley way, volunteers from the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) did everything they could to save Bones' life.

Bones had been on IV antibiotics the past few days at the Killarney vet clinic. The infection to the inner ear from the bullet had caused such severe damage that the antibiotics would not fight the infection. As a last ditch attempt, Bones was at the vet clinic on IV medication. It was apparent the antbiotics could not stem the massive infection and Bones became weak as the infection spead throughout his head. He went very peacefully to the Rainbow Bridge while being kissed and cuddled in his foster mama, Mandrin's, arms.

This year has seen a rise in the numbers of abandoned cats and feral litters that end up on the doorstep of VOKRA. The association is looking for homes for these cats and asking people to get their cats spayed and neutered to help curb this growing problem.
