We are appealing on behalf of partially sighted Pollyanna who is desperate for a home.
Found wandering the streets of Kalyves this young tortoiseshell female (approx 2 years of age) was underweight unable to hunt for food she would have starved this winter. Pollyanna has damaged corneas from old cat flu, neutered, all blood tests normal (FIV/FeLV negative) she is now fit and healthy.
Her vision is better at a distance not so good when close to objects as she cannot focus. She plays with her toys, uses her litter tray, very loving and affectionate she is very active behaving like any other cat except she can startle easily and needs pointing in the right direction sometimes.
Pollyanna would be safer as an indoor cat or allowed into a secluded garden as she is used to being outside.
If you wish to adopt or know anyone who might please contact us otherwise we need to raise the funds to send her to Woodland Nook in the UK for re homing.
We have the following stunning cats/kittens to re home most are vaccinated/micro chipped some have passports if not already neutered we can assist with neutering. Please contact us if you can assist these affectionate loving abandoned cats.
17th February 2016: Today Belle has had her ear mites treated, ears cleaned, face washed & her eyes continue to be treated. She is putting on weight and has begun to take a great interest in eating. Sadly she remains very timid and is easily scared, loud noises or strangers cause her distress.
This will change as she heals and realises we will not hurt her
Last week the local Mayors office called to ask if we could take in a cat they had found in the bottom of their bin. We see many cases of abuse & starvation it is nothing abnormal but what arrived was pitiful to see even by our standards.
Emaciated unable to stand or walk she had sat in the freezing cold covered by rubbish all manner o f foul things, the smell from her was awful paws were black her eyes full of pus she was covered in diarrhoea. The bin lid was down, the condition she was in was so poor she could never have climbed in herself we assume some contemptible human being decided she was disposable & threw her in the bin.
Our vet kept her for IV drips/antibiotics/X-rays an FIV/FeLV test which to our surprise & relief was negative. Sadly her pelvis has been broken with many fractures her left hip dislocated, with no obvious veterinary care all her fractures have healed incorrectly a patchwork too late for us to do anything about. The agony she must have been in after the accident while trying to find food & shelter is indescribable.
Despite all this she purred, wanted cuddles stoically sitting in her bath water while we tried to remove the caked on dirt. Belle has a long road ahead once normal weight she will need an operation on her back leg we cannot leave it hanging out she might lose it but we will try to realign it first.
We are aware this time of year is not good for most financially but we have to try on her behalf for donations towards her veterinary treatment, orthopedic operation & travel. Belle will never be able to be released back to where she was found & will be sent to Woodland Nook in the UK for re homing, many thanks for their efforts in fundraising.
In the meantime its rest, warmth, food & meds with love & care.
Penelope (@1½ years old) was very lucky to be found by the roadside after having been hit by a car, she suffered serious fractures to her pelvis & fractured her left hind leg.
Brought into the last neuter session she has been with us on cage rest for 5 weeks, now standing/sitting her coat is a gorgeous colour she has the most amazing eye make up! Looking really well obviously feeling better as she tries to get out!
Penny needs another month of cage rest no jumping to allow the fractures to heal then we shall do another X-Ray to check all is well. When her pelvis is healed we can neuter her & begin vaccinations.
Timid, shy and demure she is a little lady who enjoys cuddles now talking to us she is tame needing a quiet loving home.
We need a caring gentle adopter any donations towards her care & travel would be welcome.
