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
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.
Betty (tabby & white) 11 weeks of age came in unconscious no temperature she was so cold, her right eye was bulging and bleeding she was not moving. Next day we realised she was paralysed from the hips hit by a car we think laying in the wet and cold all night.
Pippy (tri color) is another found blind in a builders yard all her siblings died one of our Greek volunteers removed her and asked us to take her.
We need your help to find a home for Pippy kitten she came in eyes stuck shut suffering hideous cat flu. Once the antibiotics worked and her eyes opened we realised she had eyes but they were not working.
