A cat that fell off a six-storey Vancouver balcony, has miraculously survived the incident, though suffered two broken legs in the process.
Squeakers is now being cared for at the BC SPCA Vancouver branch.
According to branch manager Jodi Dunlop “Squeakers will need to have plates and pins inserted into her front legs to make sure her legs heal properly.”
“Pet guardians should ensure balconies are enclosed so animals can’t fall through the bars or off the railing and all open windows in the home should have screens.”
Medical bills for Squeakers are estimated to cost $6,800 and the lucky feline will spend two months at the SPCA before being ready for adoption.

“Squeakers is a lovely sweet girl who deserves a second chance after using a few of her lives during the fall,” said Dunlop.
