Dave has been back to school today for the second time, they had invited people to tell the Year1 pupils at St Peters School Wem about there jobs, myself, Barbara and of course Dave went along to give a talk, I went in my uniform as I work part time at our local vets Bridgefield Vets in Wem as well as running the rescue and Barbara is one of my brilliant volunteers. All went very well and Dave loved the attention and fuss although I think he has put a bit of weight on over the winter and will have to get him a new harness as it only just did up!! The children were amazing, so good and well behaved, I think everyone had a great morning. Thank you St Peters Wem for inviting us 🙂
Fifi’s memorial for her grave arrived yesterday, I have put it on her grave and she is buried beside my own cats that I have lost over the years, I said a little prayer and shed a few tears, bless her. The RSPCA did come to see me but although I had photographic evidence and a vets report they said it was not enough! So no justice for Fifi 🙁 I hope she is running free over that rainbow bridge with lots of friends, she will never be forgotten.
Stanley is an elderly cat, neutered and microchipped, he has been missing since 28th Feb and his owners are desperate for news, he has gone missing from Arden Close Wem, any information pls ring Anna James 01939 236970 UPDATE: Stanley has now been found and re-united with his family 🙂
Update: Now been found safe but a little thin 🙂
This is the hardest post I am ever likely to make, I have seen the specialist report today and not all was as rosy as I was told, I feel Fifi is now suffering due to the drool, her little mouth and surrounding area’s like her chin are red and sore due to me having to wipe loads of drool all the time, I cannot satisfy her hunger and believe me I have tried everything, when she has a feed it lasts approx half an hour and she want’s more, the first picture is her clawing at the cage wanting food and it’s like that every time I go in there, the second pic shows how she still drools it’s all around her mouth and runs off the buster collar. Even if the tongue did shrink it’s not a functioning tongue and never will be due to the scarring (and there are no guarantees) and possibly the drool would decrease but again no guarantees which would mean her wearing a collar for the rest of her life to stop her trying to groom herself as when she did she covered her body in drool and accumulated fur at the back of her throat and would have to give her hourly feeds (I struggle to do 2hrs) I have not come to this decision lightly believe me, I really love this cat and really really wanted to get her back to her former glory but can’t work miracles I’m very sad to say, so I have her booked into our vets tomorrow morning for her to be put to sleep 22/3/14 and put her out of her misery, I will bring her home and bury her in the garden with my past cats. Thank you all so much for your support it hasn’t been an easy two and half months. I have reported the owner to the RSPCA hopefully they will prosecute, we all know accidents happen but you do something about it not just leave it. RIP my beautiful Fifi Foo Fighter :'(
Sorry to keep everyone waiting but Fifi’s food had to come first as she had not eaten since 8pm last night, ok there is nothing surgically that can be done but the scarring on her tongue in time should reduce the size of the tongue meaning less drool, unfortunately a liquid diet causes more drool but there are no guarantees, the sides of her mouth are infected but antibiotics will not help they will only make worse so……….don’t laugh, I have to get a antibacterial mouthwash for her and clean the inside of her mouth with her very own toothbrush twice a day!! He thought it was worth a try as in every other respect she is improving. I have tried the toothbrush this afternoon and she actually likes it and bites at it so that’s half the battle, gotta do a google search for Chiorhexidine mouthwash now, bless her heart was so pleased she came back Fifi and I would like to say a HUMUNGUS thank you for all your kind words thoughts and prayers, thank you so much for your support it means so much meow xx
