    Story

    This is Storm*

    We found this poor cat wandering along our street, looking skinny and dirty. After taking her in, we tried posting on social media and putting up posters in the local area to find her owners but with no success.

    The vet who examined her for a chip informed us that the lesions on her ears were due to a condition called Squamous Cell Carcinoma, a form of cancer.

    She needs surgery to remove the cancerous ear tips, and blood medication to ease her heart murmur, the initial treatment will cost in the region of £400

    I can't tell you what a sweet-natured kitty she is, and we can't bare to see the old girl live out the rest of her life in a kennel - after all, who's going to adopt an older cat with cancer?

    So we've decided we're going to keep her, and that means looking after her as best we can, she's still got a lot of life in her!

    Please help up raise some funds to help pay for her treatment. We promise to do the rest.

    (*My sons named her!)

      As promised, here's our little Storm! Her ears have healed from her surgery, and despite her permanently angry look she is a warm, loving and very happy girl. Once again, an absolutely enormous thank you to everyone who donated, to the kind people at the Cardiff Cat Clinic, and to everyone who offered support and helped us find Storm her home - I'm so happy that in the end, it turned out to be with us! xx

      Here she is! Storm has had her surgery! Her ear tips were neatly removed by the wonderful people at Cardiff Cat Clinic. When the shaved fur by her ears grows back, she'll look just like a little teddy bear (I'll post a pic). She recovered well from the surgery and is eating lots and is as loving as ever. And it's all thanks to you. I can't thank you enough for your warm hearts and kindness. With your help, we were able to give Storm a second chance, and I can assure you that she is absolutely and totally loved, by all of us x

      We are nearly there! 78% and I am so overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of people. Some of the donors have been anonymous, and some are people we don't even know personally. Thank you, thank you a million times for helping us give Storm the treatment she needs, and there's still time to donate if anyone else would like to help. Xx

      I'm sorry to hear about your ears. Perhaps this will help you pay for some nice furry prosthetic ones. Maybe dark purple like storm clouds...
