“After we haven’t heard anything in two months, I remember thinking about throwing out her food, but I didn’t, not yet, and then I got a phone call from Nanaimo BC SPCA,” Mary’s human companion Megan said.

That’s when they learned that someone had found Mary with a collar stuck around her head and front leg, causing a wound from the included collar.

“We were a little shocked when we first saw her because she was so skinny. As soon as we saw her, she came right in,” Megan said.

Mary came home and it took two months before she was ready to leave the house and there were other changes to take off.

“She’s definitely a little more cheerful than she used to be,” Megan said. “She always liked to attack, but she would never use her claws or her teeth, just grab onto her soft claws.

“Now it’s a slap a little stronger and it will touch you with its teeth. It also purrs more often and louder now.”
