We were recently contacted by Filham Park Veterinary Clinic to help a cat with a severely damaged eye who desperately needed medical care. Popeye, as he has affectionately been named, had an accident on a farm and his eye was beyond repair and needed to be removed.

Despite the pain he must have been in Popeye has been a star patient through all his treatment and eye removal surgery at the vets. He's enjoyed lots of fuss from all the vet nurses and they all describe him as an affectionate boy. Once Popeye is well enough he will come to us to finish his recovery and receive any further treatment he may need. After he is fully recovered and fighting fit once more, we will find him a new loving forever home.

Deputy Manager Ruth Rickard said: When we heard about what happened to this sweet boy we had to help him right away. Sadly many farm cats are not given the same level of care as household cats, as they are sometimes left to fend for themselves. At only 7 years old, he has many years left to enjoy the comfort of a loving home.

It is estimated to cost an additional £800 on top of our normal operating costs to give Popeye the help and treatment he needs.

Thank you for helping poor Popeye.
