Story

Felix is a 2 year old male cat that came into the centre in February this year, as he was unable to move with his owners to their new home.

Felix is blind, so being in new and unfamiliar surroundings is a big challenge for him, but he doesnt let this stop him living life to the fullest. Our staff have placed tape on the floor of his pen to mark where his water bowl, litter tray and bed go. The tape works a little bit like braille, so by keeping everything in the same place, Felix can use the feel of the tape to find his way around. Felix has mapped out where everything is and is even brave enough to venture out of his pen to the mesh door to be able to sniff the world outside.

The staff noticed that Felix was walking a little strangely, so he was taken to see the vets. The vets examined Felix where they noticed that his right hip is missing. This could be a birth defect or a result of an old road traffic accident, but without a full medical history available to us we can't be certain. It means that his right leg is moving in and out of place every time he walks. This can be quite uncomfortable for Felix, but the injury is sadly inoperable.

Despite being uncomfortable with his leg Felix loves nothing more than having a cuddle and purring away. Felix still manages to play with his toys, and has a collection that all make different noises so that he can find them easily.

Felix will require X-Rays, pain medication and ongoing specialist care during his time with NAWT, with amputation of his leg a possibility if his discomfort increases. Please give what you can to help this beautiful young cat enjoy the rest of his adventures free from pain or discomfort.
