After two kittens were injured after falling from highrise apartments, the B.C. SPCA is asking the public for assistance following their emergency surgeries.

After falling off a fourth-floor balcony, Jersey the three-month-old kitten was brought to the veterinarian when his family discovered he couldn’t walk, according to a B.C. SPCA news release.

Jersey was then surrendered to the Victoria B.C. SPCA when his family couldn’t afford the cost for the required emergency surgery. The cost of the surgery, where he lost a leg, and pain management is estimated to be $2,000.

Another kitty, four-month-old Toast was given to the Vancouver Branch after falling five storeys from the window of his owner’s home, according to the SPCA.

Toast’s surgery cost more than $3,000.

Once fully recovered, both kitties will be looking for forever homes.

The SPCA is asking for donations to assist with the surgery expenses. Donate online through the SPCA website.
