Gables Dogs and Cats Home have recently taken in an elderly cat called Aye- Aye from the RSPCA. The lovely elderly girl was found lying in a road in a collapsed state and was extremely cold, underweight and lethargic. She was taken to a local veterinary practice where it was found that she was hyperthyroid and in need of urgent medical care. Sadly she was not microchipped and we have been unable to trace her owner. Now that she is in the care of Gables we can effectively treat her condition and find her a new home where she will be comfortable and happy.

Gables are determined to help Aye Aye back to good health. General Manager, Claire Sparkes had this to say about the poor girl, When Aye Aye arrived she was clearly very underweight with a body score of just 2 out of 9, and in a very poor condition. We were pleased to be able to offer her our help. She is already starting to put on weight due to receiving 6 small meals a day of a top quality veterinary diet in the short time she has been with us. She has such a lovely character and she will be a lovely companion for someone very lucky.

Once she is strong enough she will need a dental to remove some very rotten teeth and a tumour on her jaw inside her mouth. She will also need a heart scan and bloods taken to assess how well her hyperthyroidism medication is working. In the mean time she will still enjoy plenty of attention from our staff and lots of good food.

It is estimated it will cost Gables £4,000 for all the treatment and medication that Aye Aye will need now and into the future, as well as basic care such as flea and worm treatment and vaccinations. As she is an elderly cat Gables will continue to support her new owners with her veterinary care.

Gables Dogs & Cats Home does not receive any government funding and has felt the financial strain from the cost of living crisis, but they are determined to help Aye Aye.
