Penelope

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.

Urgent appeal kitten adoption

Nine lives but only three legs

Katy has been very fortunate to find a new home here in Crete, making the most of it after a long journey…    Saturday 25/01/14

This poor girl is approximately 6 months old but very small for her age, she arrived on a dark wet night in December after being found by the roadside with her back legs bloody & having to drag herself along. There were no vets available but Cassie valiantly scooped her up & brought her to us for emergency care.

Shocked from pain & blood loss Katy had a small fracture (we later found on x-ray) of the pelvis, her back leg & the base of her tail had foul infected wounds, the left leg open to the bone. A critical issue was that she had already lost the left front leg in the past! if we did not stop the infection amputation of a second limb was not viable Katy would have to be euthanised.

Our vet & volunteer assistants skilfully cut away the infected tissue on her leg & the wounds were cleaned & sutured; she needed twice daily antibiotic injections, anti-inflammatory & pain relief drugs & wound cleaning & cage rest was all we could now we hoped for the best.

Now 6 weeks later she is helping dismantle the xmas tree & bounding about the garden! Her wounds are completely healed but she has a small limp due to muscle damage on the back leg & is a little clumsy which may or may not resolve in time.

Some psychological trauma also remains & she is slightly nervous outdoors with strangers but she is gradually becoming more confident. She is very mischievous & talkative but also affectionate loving other cats & humans she is quite capable of being a lap cat.

Katy needs a safe garden without busy roads, to be kept in at night & protected from other animals that may attack her, we suspect she was savaged by a roaming dog.

We need a special home for Katy Kitten, can any of you give her the love & attention this valiant little girl needs?
