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”. One of the reasons she has lost weight and is struggling, apart from having no teeth, could be hyperthyroidism, treatable with daily medication. 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 Lick-e-Lix liquid treats and maybe even a Zoom Groom 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.

    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.

    I saw Dipsy on her fence this morning, she had the crusty remains of Lick-e-lix on her forehead between her eyes. She’s a lot more relaxed now and didn’t care when I had to walk away to get off to work. Hopefully her desperate times are behind her. She did an impressive stretch on the fence, bum in the air - to me that is a marvel. Stay well Dipsy, maybe clean your face though!

    This is a picture of Dipsy from May when I started monitoring her. The change you can see in the other photos below is so marked. She’s filled out now and her coat looks so much healthier. Please keep sharing as every penny goes towards Dipsy’s care now and in the future. Click on the Show More, at the end of this Update Section to see more photos.

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.
