All ears on feline issues

BCSPCA is encouraging cat lovers to don cat ears next month to show support for their feline friends.

BCSPCA is encouraging cat lovers to don cat ears next month to show support for their feline friends.

The headband is available for $2 through the society’s online store, at shop.spca.bc.ca, or at the local SPCA branch (in Surrey, at 16748 58 Ave.).

The initiative is hoped to raise awareness of the province’s cat-overpopulation problem, which is a key focus of the society.

BCSPCA general manager Lorie Chortyk noted that more than three-quarters of all kittens born outside will die within a year.

“It’s not a safe place for them out there, with frostbite, mites, traffic and predatory wildlife to contend with,” Chortyk said in a press release. “Pet guardians must realize that they can actually save lives by having their cat spayed or neutered.”

Those choosing to sport cat ears are encouraged to share photos of themselves wearing them on social media.
