Cat survives apartment fire

Monica is desperately seeking her human.

The cat was rescued recently from the burnt out apartment building near Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

“Volunteers from The Road Home Society were thrilled to rescue Monica and by means of her tattoo, the Animal Care Society was able to contact the original owner who had adopted the cat in 2005,” said Heather Pettit, with the society, a volunteer-run animal welfare organization. “But Monica’s luck ran out when her registered owner was unable to take her back and reported that the cat had disappeared a long time ago.”

Pettit said staff members at Crescent Falls Veterinary Hospital, who are caring for Monica temporarily, believe that someone has given the cat a second home. They are hoping her new guardian will recognize her photo and bring her home for good.

Monica can be seen at Crescent Falls during business hours, or call Pettit at 250-542-7203.
