Story

Onion was dumped on the streets at the age of 9 weeks. Luckily a good Samaritan brought her to our veterinary surgery.
We then noticed that Onion is suffering from a condition called Atresia Ani, which basically means she does not have a bum. Instead, her intestinal tract ends in her vulva, through which she is pooing as well, but with great difficulty. As a complication she has also developed a nasty bacterial infection in her urinary tract.
For obvious reasons this is not a sustainable situation for Onion and in many scenario's Onion would have been euthanised. But because she has developed in such a lovely kitten over the last couple of weeks, we want to give her a chance of a normal life, living with a loving family.
In order to make that happen Onion needs to undergo surgery at a specialist centre, which will require significant funding, for which we ask your help. Any donations, however small, are highly appreciated.
Where onions usually make people cry, we are sure this one will bring many smiles to people's faces, if given the chance...

    She's back! Tonight we picked Onion up from the QMHA. She's doing well, although she's mightily unimpressed with her cone of shame and confinement: no running around until the stitches come out next week! Anyway, we are well chuffed to have the foster-baby back!

    Pre-weekend-Onion update: Onion is doing well! According to the most recent update she is eating well, up for play all the time and also toiletiing as well as can be expected at the moment. Whether her bum will have normal sphincter function is still to be seen, but at least at the moment poo is coming without causing discomfort. Onion will stay at QMHA over the weekend, but Monday Prof Lipscomb will decide if she can be discharged to recover further at home. Fingers crossed, Toast can't wait...I think ;-) More new as soon as we have it!

    Surgery day today! Just received a phone call from the QMH: Onion's surgery went better than expected (VERY cautiously optimistic), she did very well under anaesthesia and she is now coming round. She will have to wear a buster collar (the notorious cone of shame) whilst the wound heals, but will hopefully feel better soon. More updates tomorrow! Hope to have this little mitt back home again soon!
