Please can you help us find our deeply loved cat Poppy?
We found Poppy a couple of months ago in our garden. She was half starved, shivering & eating the mealworms we'd put out for the birds. We also discovered that she'd been living/sleeping up one of our trees. She was only a young cat & despite being very timid at first, with gentle encouragement she started to trust us & let us feed & shelter her for a growing time each day. As Poppy's trust grew, her personality began to shine - she craved love & contact and became the friendliest & sweetest little cat you could know. She would lie on my lap for hours in an evening with the loudest purr. We strongly and sadly believed that she had been abandoned.
Yesterday (06.09.18) we decided that Poppy was finally ready to be taken to the vet to be checked over. Unfortunately that is when disaster struck. She managed to escape her carrier just outside the clinic & ran away. We were unable to find her, even after returning later the same day & also today.
We are absolutely devastated as we had truly fallen in love with Poppy & wanted to give her her forever home. Now Poppy is somewhere she doesn't know and is probably scared & hungry again. We've done everything that we humanly can but it is a large, unfamiliar urban area (not in our home town) and we need some extra help.
Today I heard about https://www.animalsearchuk.co.uk/search. It offers us a huge ray of hope (and a literal lifeline for Poppy); but there is no way that we can afford their services ourselves. We are absolutely desperate, as every minute counts in finding her again. So I am asking from my heart for any donations that you can offer to help pay for a search team. We will be beyond grateful for anything you can contribute, however small.
On behalf of both Poppy and ourselves,
Thank You x
