Pete the cat is able to get some rest after a harrowing time in his life.

For Pete’s sake…

Pete has been living life on his own doing the best he could to survive, uncared for and unloved.

Neglected, sick, matted and abandoned, Pete roamed the streets in a sad state. Pete has been living life on his own doing the best he could to survive, uncared for and unloved. Like all animals, he deserves to be treated with kindness and respect.

Fortunately for him, he was noticed by a person who understood cats, a kind and compassionate lady who reached out when she saw him in distress and befriended him. She spoke to him kindly, and eventually he let her pick him up.  When he started to purr and rub his face on her, she knew he was not a wild cat.

At one point in his life, Pete had a home.  He was socialized to people and he knew them as sources of food and loving attention.  How did he get so neglected, and why was he abandoned?

After he was rescued, Pete was taken in by Protecting Animal Life Society. He was brought to Nakusp Veterinary Clinic, where he has been receiving medical attention for the last three weeks. Pete is a loving and lovable cat.

Pete’s story brings awareness to what can happen to cats that aren’t neutered. Life can be extremely difficult and short. This neglect is often unintentional, as some pet owners are still ignorant of the importance of spaying and neutering. Not only does it prevent many many unwanted cats ending up in already overflowing shelters but also helps prevent the spread of diseases such as feline leukemia.

With the incredible dedication and support of the Nakusp Vet Clinic for which we are very thankful, we are doing all we can to turn Pete’s life around.

There are many cats like Pete who are in desperate need of loving foster care homes, so if you have room in your heart and your home, please call PALS.
