Yesterday I was called about a cat who had been stuck in a flat with her owner’s dead body for up to 9 days. The poor man’s body had been removed on Saturday and although the neighbours had told the police that there was definitely a cat inside, they said there wasn’t. The neighbours persevered and eventually the police came back and located the terrified girl today. I went and collected her straight away and took her to the vet to see if there were any ill effects. They discovered that she has a huge tumour. As if the little mite hasn’t been through enough. With buckets of tears, I left her for observation. The prognosis was bad but even though she has been through so much, I still see a brightness in her face and a strong will. Poor little poppet.
Can a kind person offer a calm refuge to this poor girl? She doesn’t even have a name. After all she’s been through, she deserves some love and happiness at the end of her life. I don’t know how much time she has left but would like her to spend it in comfort. If I can’t find anywhere, she will have to be put to sleep because it is not fair or right for her to be stuck in a cage at the vets…..although I will do everything to avoid that, of course. I am at a loss. If you can help, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to give her a chance.
