Dave the cat is a loving, friendly cat. He loves fuss, food, cuddles and letting us know what he wants!
Everyone who has met Dave has loved Dave. He is so soppy!
On 21st November he didn't come home. 36 hours later Dave fought his way home but was in really bad shape.
Rushing Dave to the vets they discovered he has a broken orbital socket (eye socket) and three fractures to in his jaw. They said he will need to have his jaw plated and wires shut to heal.
23rd November the specialist met Dave and assessed his injuries and concluded that Dave has been hit with some kind of metal bar/pole in the face, the damage caused was too substantial and he needs to see a vet in Southampton to do the operation to save his life. This operation is going to cost over £3000.
Luckily Dave is insured but this won't cover the costs of his treatment and the long aftercare he will need.
This little guy is such an integral part of our family and my heart breaks just writing this. Something I never throught I would have to write.
Any donations towards Daves treatment will really help us as we can't bare to not give our little man the best chance but £3000 is just too much :(
Thank you

    Dave is HOME!!!! After seeing the specialist today Dave has been allowed to come home. He isn't feeding yet so the feeding tube has to remain and we are taking g over syringe feeding him every three hours. He is very happy to be home and explored the house before falling nag asleep in his favourite place on his mum and dads bed! Thank you everyone!!!! He is back to seethe specialist in January to have the wires and Shield removed on another operation. This operation will cost another £500. Thank you all!!! Nikita

    We thought Dave may be able to come home today but unfortunately he is in a lot of pain again. Alma vets ( who are amazing) have had to up his pain medication and are going to keep him in again :( we make the 2 hour trip to Christchurch tomorrow for his post op appointment with the surgeon to see how he is healing :) fingers crossed he is feeling better tomorrow! Poor little thing!!

    Dave is still under the amazing care of alma vets and is starting to be more himself demanding fuss and starting to purr! He is still not wanting to eat so is still being tube fed. We wanted to.say thank you to everyone for their generosity as it has helped myself and my family hugely financially which has really helped us cope with the situation! The money we raised through this page has paid the majority of Alma's bill which we are soo grateful for as the insurance covered only 3/4's of the specialist bill. So thank you all again
