    Two cats locked in a cage and abandoned in the bushes in the Willis Road area are on the road to recovery.

    When they came in they were completely emaciated, Katie Hal-liday, a veterinary technician at Courtenays Van Isle Veterinary Hospital, told CTV Vancouver Island.

    The seven-month-old cats were

    locked in a pet carrier and stashed in the bushes. The cage had been taped and was discovered by a man walking his dog, the dog being the one that actually uncovered them.

    What they found was disturbing. Showing signs of organ failure from starvation and covered in their own urine and feces, the cats had been scratching at their cage in an obvi-ous attempt to get out. They may have been in there as longh as two weeks.

    (The black and white one) was

    just struggling to survive, basically, Halliday said. We were really wor-ried about that one.

    The cats apparently sisters were carefully rehydrated and fed intravenously. It is expected they will be offered up for adoption once their recovery is complete.

    The case disturbed Halliday and SPCA officials.

    This is one of those (cases) where its just absolutely shocking and appalling, Halliday said. I have never seen this kind of thing

    before.That it was done deliberately

    rather than neglectfully is even more disturbing. Abandoned ani-mals are more likely to be just left in the bush and run off, not trapped in a cage. Halliday said there are options if you dont want an ani-mal. The most obvious and humane option is to turn them over to the SPCA. The SPCA, meanwhile, is asking the public for any informa-tion on the cats to call 1-855-622-7722.

    Shocking case of abandonment

    If the northern portion of Area D joins the city of Campbell River, taxes may go up in all of the Strath-cona Regional District electoral areas, according to a new report.

    A report on the service impacts to the regional district, should the citys boundary extension proposal go through, reveals taxpayers could see increased costs across the board.

    Russ Hotsenpiller, the CAO of the regional district, said there are sev-eral areas that need to be addressed by the city of Campbell River before the proposal goes any further.

    The report concludes there is a financial impact on taxpayers throughout the regional district elec-toral areas and there will be either financial, administrative or opera-tional impacts to the fire, water, building inspection, recreation, liq-uid waste management, community parks, electoral areas administration, grants-in-aid, planning and transit services within Area D, Hotsenpiller said. There will also be a reduction in gas tax allocations.

    In all, the electoral areas (non-municipal parts) of the regional district will see a reduction of $167,000 in revenue in selected ser-vices which Hotsenpiller said would likely need to be addressed through

    Merger could cause tax increase for all of Area D
