This week has been distressing for vets, volunteers & cats. We are appealing for help with three severely disabled cats. Their stories are depressing and horrific, the time and energy to nurse them intense but we see spirit and the will to live in all three.
Warning: there are distressing images in this post
we have two delightful tabby kittens found abandoned in a derelict house with no Mummy their 2 siblings died. Currently being weaned they are about 5 weeks old but starved and small for their age. They have a way to go a few more weeks with us to be treated and fattened up, they will be vaccinated we can assist with neutering.
This little girl used up 8 lives when she was thrown from a car onto the national highway like rubbish.
We think she landed on her back leg causing soft tissue damage to her hip and knee joints. Our colleague Ρένα Τερεζάκη (Rena Terezaki) risked life and limb to scoop the kitten off the road, puss is very lucky to be alive.
Mia was eventually caught in Kalyves were she was spotted by a volunteer over the New Year with a partial traumatic amputation of her tail. In a terrible state with the cold & wet weather she needed plenty of warmth, TLC & food. Last week she was operated on to remove what was left of the tail and Mia is recovering really well.
