In this section we have some of our residents stories that are still ongoing as in treatments, we desperately need donations to help with these and all our activities to do with re-homing cats.
This is our little “Beth” as we have called her, she was found full up with cat flu, she came in on Tuesday afternoon and has been at our vets Bridgefield Vet Surgery since Wednesday on a drip, she’s such a little sweetie and purrs at the drop of a hat, she goes to meow but nothing comes out 🙂 Hopefully she will be on the mend soon as she is getting the best care possible. Get well soon Beth <3
Little Tom wen’t back to the vets on Friday and fantastic news, not only have we been able to save his tail but his leg as well 🙂 so we had his 1st vaccine done and got him microchipped and now he is up for adoption. It’s been a long haul but so worth it. Don’t think he will be with us long now as such a sweetie 🙂
Little Tom has been in his outside pen for a couple of weeks to try and build some muscle mass up, he seems to be doing quite well 🙂 he is sort of using his poorly leg but not fully weight bearing. He goes for re-assessment in the new year, lets hope he doesn’t have to lose that leg! His tail is quite safe though and the pelvis has healed 🙂
Tom went back to the vets y/day and good news he will not lose his tail 🙂 however there is still a chance he may lose his leg, I now have to move him from his cage rest to an outside pen so he can exercise more and build up the muscle, he has to go back in another 6wks for further assessment, will keep you posted 🙂
Little Tom was bought into our vets Bridgefield Veterinary Surgery Wem last Thursday evening, he had been missing for a week or two and was dragging his rear leg and tail, he had been involved in a RTA, he has a fractured pelvis so has to have 4/6 wks cage rest and see how he goes, he may still have to have his leg and tail amputated. The owner could not cope or have the time/money to treat and at 6mths old I could not bare the thought of such a young life being put to sleep, so we have taken him on, he’s a lovely lad and enjoy’s a fuss, he will be on pain relief for the time he is on cage rest, we have given him an incontinent sheet with litter on as well as a tray as he couldn’t use the tray at the vets so at least he has a choice 🙂 Will update with any further news but this may not be until cage rest is finished
Blackjack now 🙂
This little lad came in on 2nd Feb, a lady took him to the vets to see if he had a microchip but didn’t, although he was in an emaciated state the vet told her to put him back where she found him, luckily she didn’t and took him home until I had room to take him in, he was very skinny as you can see by the pictures and was an un-neutered male, the first thing we did was to get him neutered but he had a very hard lump in his abdomen, he had a fibrous hernia caused by trauma, our vet thought probably kicked sometime ago as it had been there for a long time, so he had to have another op to remove the hernia, well he goes for his final post op check next Thursday and all being well will be ready for adoption after that, we have had him health checked, neutered, had op for his hernia, chipped and now fully vaccinated as well as wormed and de-flead, he is a really lovely cat and as you can see from the pictures now looks healthy and has put weight on with a shiny sleek coat, a really lovely boy. Anyone interested? They think 18mths to 2yrs old. The before and after pic’s bless him
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.
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 :'(
