Last Night’s Injured Cat

Last Night’s Injured Cat
I’m sorry to report that the injured cat from last night, a tabby girl with a white patch on her left haunch, had to be euthanized as her back had been broken.   The poor thing was too injured and in too much pain for anything else.
RIP, sweetie.  At least you passed in loving hands.

Emergency- Severely Injured Cat

Emergency- Severely Injured Cat
A grey tabby cat (with white paws?) was perhaps hit by a car Wednesday night and was brought to the Gold River Cat Society. S/he could be very badly injured and will be seeing Dr. Dave first thing tomorrow morning. S/he was found around the arena area and only had a flea collar on. As s/he may be too badly hurt to move him/her much, the age and gender could not be ascertained.
If this is your missing cat, please contact the Gold River Cat Society at 250-283-7606 anytime or the GR Vet Office at 250-283-7522 after 9am tomorrow morning.

Please Think of Us

Yesterday, the Gold River Cat Society has had to deal with two kitten tragedies- a little one was found down the bank of the highway just this side of the bridge and is probably the only surviving member of a tossed litter; the other was a report of a distressed kitten on the street that someone “put in a bag and took to the village.” Upon enquiry of the Village office, no one apparently has taken the kitten in to them, meaning it was probably thrown away.

After being in operation for over a year and having had a lot of publicity, I cannot fathom why people behave this callously when they know the Cat Society is here. CALL US, please, if you have a unwanted litter or if you find a cat or kitten in need of assistance. We have a website (www.grcs.ca), an email address (goldrivercatsociety [at] gmail [dot] com), and links from other websites, including the Buzz. Our phone number is 250-283-7606.

There is no excuse for throwing away ANY kittens. We will even pay to have your cats spayed/ neutered if you cannot afford it. Just let us know if you need help.

Gold River Cat Society Trapping Schedule

GRCS Trapping Schedule
As you know, the Gold River Cat Society has taken on the responsibility of trapping the feral cats to fulfill the requirements of the village’s/BCSPCA grant. We do this the Wednesday night before each vet visit.
In June, however, all vet spaces for the grant have been given over to the Recycling Depot to finish fixing their resident ferals. We will reinstate our trapping for the first vet visit in July and continue from then on until the grant funds has been used up.
Thank you.
