Here is Timmy, this little chap is eight weeks old but so emaciated & sick he weighs the same as a four week old kitten. He was brought in dying from cat flu, initially we all thought he was blind, but after eye drops and antibiotics 3 days ago he opened his eyes. We are tentatively optimistic, but he has a long way to go. We need donations for his veterinary care, rehabilitation and adoption.
This is Plaka (from Plaka), a friendly stray cat and quite possibly just another discarded pet.
This very affectionate cat (who in the past has had many kittens) visited her UK cat lovers every summer. Last year she was neutered in the Dimos program, however on their return this year they where distraught to see her covered in weeping infected burns, without intervention she would have died a very painful death from infection.
Distressingly for all concerned we guess she had been set alight with lighter fuel.
She was brought to us for emergency treatment and is being nursed back health.
July 2018: Her loving UK adopters have now taken her home, she is recovering with lots of love
We are desperately seeking an individual or organisation with the resources to help rehabilitate and re home willow.
Willow is approx 4 years of age found by the roadside having seizures, we are certain she was struck on the head causing cerebellar injury. X Rays showed no new breaks but that she had probably been run over by a car in the past (healed fractures of tail/femur/pelvis)
We have no access to diagnostic scans such as CT/MRI the brain injury has been diagnosed by examination only. Manitol and steroids initially for 3 weeks nothing other than parasite treatments since, she has had limited physiotherapy we do not access to hydro or specialist care.
Willow has made incredible progress she can now stand on all four legs and walks despite losing her balance as she still falls over, uses newspapers or the garden area for toileting (we cannot get a litter tray she can use as she falls out of it!). In the garden every day when the weather is good she loves being around us and her care is minimal (the occasional hot flannel on bits she finds difficult to reach) her will to live and determination to move again is humbling.
Willow is a lap cat obviously she must have been an indoor cat at some point but is a very independent spirit! We cannot keep her as she does not like other cats and will not tolerate them although we have got her to sit in the same room as ours now. Due to this we cannot have her indoors with us permanently when the winter comes we have nowhere for her to go, our own cats have learned to move fast when she is around!
We have had 3 vets assess her all say she is continuing to make further progress and should have a normal lifespan can any of you help her or find an organisation with better resources than ours?
On Monday (15th) morning this tiny bin cat was found collapsed in the middle of the road. He was in a really bad way and after a speed breaking run to the vet, the worst was confirmed. He was infested with worms, fleas and maggots. Bleeding from the mouth, emaciated, swollen infected eyes, severely dehydrated, in liver failure and suffering from hypothermia.Shelby kitten thanks everyone for their good wishes, blessings & donations
Estimated to be about 12 weeks of age we felt he deserved a chance at life. Would he make it through the night?? He did!!!!! Today he ate a small amount of food but he is still seriously ill. The chances of recovery are low and the costs high but he is fighting to live.
Tuesday (23rd): Today Shelby came back to be nursed, his drip is out but he still needs hand feeding which with his teeth is a challenge! A month or more of antibiotics, he has a large draining abscess on his forehead and were not sure if he is brain damaged or just traumatized.
Thursday: ….. back to the vets this morning. Shelby is not eating, drinking or urinating and has fluids coming out of his nose. Will let you know what the vet says.
He is now back on a drip & this morning much better for it! He is eating himself for the first time
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.
