    Story

    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

      Day by day Dave has been becoming more and more like himself which has been fantastic to see. He has been avoiding food as his mouth is so painful and uncomfortable bless him but today we had a breakthrough! Dave ate!! He has been eating soft cat food! It has been amazing we are so grateful for everyone's help as this wouldn't of been possible without your amazing donations. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! X

      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!!
