LETHBRIDGE - A lot of people are concerned for the animals that were injured in Tuesdays south-side house fire.
The blaze started in the attic just

cats were able to escape the home through open windows and doors. 28 of
the injured cats are being treated at the Family Pet Hospital on Mayor Magrath
Drive. Some are doing well but others have bad facial and paw-pad burns, eye
ulcers and suffer from smoke inhalation. The number of cats brought in has put a
strain on the pet hospital. They're collecting donations, if you'd like to help

to take some of these cats in once they heal, others will go to the Animal
Shelter. Posted on Wednesday, March 06, 2013 at 12/8/2013 2:38:57 PM
