Rescue Cats to UK, please adopt a Greek Feline

Monday 1am, Pippen followed Pippa

Update 30/08/13

We have very sad news about Pippa, despite antibiotics, sub cutaneous saline, and any & every intervention we could think of that might help, she was unable to eat or keep fluids down & left us at dawn.
A salutary lesson for everybody to learn… do not ever give cow’s milk or condensed milk to newborn kittens.

Bumble in need

Bumble Update 08/03/13
The poor boy on his left side has a fractured pelvis broken in three places but the hip joint is intact with a large haematoma over the groin area no apparent nerve damage.  Our vet sought a second opinion with a an orthopaedic colleague in Athens after sedation this is what we did for him:

  • Stabilised the pelvis by bandaging, he will need cage rest for a month then another month to recover.
  • To avoid another anaesthetic he was castrated he is young approx. 1-2 years.
  • Ivermectin injection for ear mites & internal parasites.
  • Antibiotic injection to prevent infection.
  • Meloxicam oral 7 more days for pain & inflammation.
  • He already had Drontal & frontline for tapeworm & fleas.
  • He had a yummy tuna supper & is now tucked up warm in his basket on the heated floor

Bumble says a big thank you to those who have already donated towards his veterinary bills

A happy beginning…

I am the lady that was holidaying in Rhodes that was trying to help an injured kitten, I am delighted to say, that with the help of the GWCS and RAWS, he is to be treated, passported and has a place on a flight back to the UK  on October 21st.

I just wanted to thank you for all your help, support and advice.

I have attached a photo of the little beauty for you to see. Isn’t he adorable!! He looks like he could have a broken leg, but he hasn’t been to the vet yet so we do not know what treatment he will need

Good luck with the rescuing, you are all doing the most amazing work
