Thursday 21st February
Update: Vincent has now been released back to the wild and seemed more than happy running down the path he knows well & straight into the olive grove back to his mates!.
- leg & abdominal wound cleaning & suturing
- giardia treatment*
- sample analysis for internal parasites
- fleaded & wormed
- neutered & undescended testicle removed
Many thanks to those who rescued Vincent from the car engine, this was a team effort
This little chap crawled into the engine space of a parked car in Vamos car park seeking warmth. The owner & cat were taken by surprise on starting the engine the following day…..
Three humans & various lacerations later poor puss was caught & taken to a local vet, his abdomen had a deep haematoma that had to be drained & his left hind leg was deeply lacerated from hip to below knee.
Thanks to their efforts he is now here with us recovering post operatively, he has infections in his wounds & his back leg is causing concern. He has a long way to go yet.
We cannot touch him as he is very wild & too much contact causes him stress
‘Vincent from Vamos’ as he is now known says thank you for any donations towards his care
