Kitten critically harm after being thrown out of transferring automobile in Kelowna

The BC SPCA is asking for help to treat a seriously injured kitten.

Ivy, who is seven weeks old, was thrown out of a moving vehicle in Kelowna, the SPCA said.

The impact was so severe that her tail skin was “almost completely removed,” the animal charity explained.

Vets gave Ivy medication to help her deal with the pain. They then decided that her tail is too badly damaged to be repaired, meaning it will have to be amputated.

The SPCA said she will also need surgery on her femur.

Petsecure has offered to match all medical donations for Ivy up to $3,500.

Despite her injuries, the SPCA said the kitten is “healthy and happy” and expected to live a normal life when she has recovered.

<p dir=“Ivy is a fighter and survivor,” said Sean Hogan, manager of the BC SPCA in Kelowna.

“She has made great progress in a few days and though she’s a bit wobbly, she’s started to move around a bit more now that she’s no longer in pain. She loves to play with string toys and is eager for the attention from staff.”

Ivy is expected to be up for adoption within eight weeks.
