Difficult Times . . .

Those of you following Heather`s posts on facebook will know Sweety came to us at the weekend for intensive care, she was deteriorating rapidly. Despite emergency care on Monday morning sadly her heart gave out whilst our vet was trying to treat her.

People have been asking the cause, its not pleasant but sometimes we do postmortems on difficult cases to make sure we have all done what we can & learn what care we can change if anything in the future.
Sweety had overwhelming infection from old wounds, her lungs and chest cavity were filled with pus, nothing would have saved this brave girl.

Vinnie

Meanwhile to add to our distress Vinnie from ARIA despite everyone’s best efforts had to be let go the ear cancer and infection had spread, he too was a brave boy.

On a good note meet Zippy the joint child! He is around 3 weeks old, still bottle feeding three hourly, & he seems very healthy, we think his mummy was run over. If anyone can give him a home or help in any way please do!

HELP! 13 kittens

… half of them still needing homes!
We took in a litter of seven going blind, dying of diarrhoea. 
6 boys and one poor little girl!
After weeks of tests & treatment all of them are now fit and healthy eating like mad desperate for homes. 
Various shades of gingers & one sweet tabby boy calling on you for help.
We need help to pay their vet bills, vaccinate them & find them homes.

Appeal for help with three severely disabled cats

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

Elsie

Adopted ! 🙂

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.
