Got room in your house and heart for Leon?

Leon, a big friendly fluffy cream-coloured cat, needs a home.

Dr. Barrie Hume at Summerland Animal Clinic treated him after he was apparently hit by a vehicle.

The Summerland veterinarian and her staff got involved because a client was moving from Summerland to Cawston recently and found the cat injured along Highway 3A near Ollala.

The cat was suffering from a broken leg, broken teeth and a balance problem likely caused by a head injury.

Since then the simple fracture has been set and the broken teeth removed. The cat has also been neutered and has had his vaccinations. Leon is recovering and ready to go home now.

Attempts to find the owner have failed, so he needs a new place to live.

He is about a year and a half old. His color is a creamy pale orange, with orange points. His eyes are bright blue, and his coat is medium long. He is a sociable and confident cat, obviously someone’s pet at one time.

“His name Leon is ‘Noel’ spelled backwards,” said Hume. She said the new owner won’t have to pay for the treatment. “He’s our Christmas project.”

If you know whose cat he was or if you want to adopt him, call the clinic at 250-494-9468.
