Cats Protection

We rescue, rehome, neuter and educate to improve the lives of cats and kittens

Story

Fortunately,  most of the cats we re-home are fit and healthy, but occasionally we take in injured felines who have an eye or a tail missing. At the start of this year in just one month we had three cases of leg amputation, and we have since taken in a cat, now called Hamish, that required extensive jaw surgery – unbelievable!

Oscar's front leg was injured in a traffic accident; Mickey, the black and white kitten, was born with the lower half of his back leg missing and so with no foot, his stump was suffering; and then Raja, a majestic–looking  tabby boy with a very badly-damaged elbow joint which could not be saved.

We are pleased to report that all three cats are doing well and with their adaptability, we are sure they will forget they ever had 4 legs. 

Former stray, Hamish, needed extensive surgery to repair a jaw injury, possibly sustained in a road accident. He is now recovering and will soon be available for rehoming
You can imagine all these operations in

such a short space of time has badly dented our funds as operations of this kind take skill, time, care and obviously cost our branch a significant amount of money. Although, of course,  there was never any doubt that we would help these  cats as they can go on to lead full and wonderful lives.

We are pleased to report that all three cats are doing well and with their adaptability, we are sure they will forget they ever had 4 legs.

We are very grateful that there are kind-hearted cat lovers in the community who are willing to adopt these lovely cats with their missing limbs.

Any donation you can make would be very much appreciated to help us cover the cost of these operations.  Any funds raised over and above those needed for Oscar, Mickey, Raja and Hamish will help other cats in our care – thank you
