Story

This is Dipsy. Dipsy has been a stray all her life, she is an elderly lady, cared for by the community, but now she is sick. £300 will cover Dipsy’s immeadiate care: vet bills, tests and medication (bloods £48.97, fluids £80 minimum, metacan painkillers £39.50, overnight stay £18.85, any injections, medicine or treatment will make the bill close to £300). Dipsy has no teeth, so any spare money will be used for soft food. Dipsy was taken to the vet last Thursday, lethargic and severely dehydrated, she was described as “emaciated stray”. The transformation from receiving fluids and pain killers has been amazing, Dipsy has more energy and her eyes are bright. But there was no money for the vital tests and medicine she needs. Money is tight for the community, but they have kept this girl alive, putting money aside to buy her food. If we could raise £600+, this would cover longer term care, up to 6 months of medicine and a future vet check up, bedding, soft food, her new favourite liquid treats and maybe even a soft rubber brush! Even though Dipsy is grubby, she does clean herself as best she can! This friendly, characterful, purry old girl deserves to live a pain free, healthier life in the community who loves her. Please can you help? Any amount you can give will make a world of difference to Dipsy. Scroll down the Updates to Show More photos of Dipsy and more of her story.

    I’m devastated that Dipsy has developed a problem with her mouth. I know she is old, but the improvements she had made in such a short time showed that there was definitely life left in the old girl. She playfully stands on her hind legs to stretch her front paws up your legs and she’s been so relaxed knowing soft food is available when she needs it. So to be in pain when she eats now is very upsetting for her and us. The tramadol is a great short term fix so she can eat and sleep, but it’s not the solution. Please please share her page again.

    I’m so sorry to say that Dipsy has developed a problem with her gums. She was doing so well until this week, when she started showing signs of pain when trying to eat. Despite her age the vet has approved dental treatment under anaesthetic (she actually has 3 teeth at the back and this may be causing the pain). She’s on short term pain medication until she can get dental treatment. To help cover costs, I’m extending her page and asking, even if you have shared before, please share her page so this lovely old girl can get back on track.

    Dipsy sitting elegantly on some bins, deep in thought. She comes out in the mornings when it’s still cool. Her fur is growing back from being shaved for blood tests. She’s looking so much better. Still need to keep on top of her flea treatments though.

An animal lover, I moved to the area in September last year, looking for work, and have since been temping sporadically for the NHS in admin. I’ve been monitoring Dipsy since winter, ever since she ran up to me for pats. And through her, met the nice people who feed her.
