Bedford & Biggleswade Cats Protection have taken on 2 cases recently, which have seen them with vets bills of over £2,700 in just 2 weeks.

Maud, came in as a stray, with what appeared to be a missing
eye. Further investigation showed that she still had the eye, but it was
necrotising in the socket and needed to be removed. Her bill, to date is

The Silsoe kittens came into our care at the age of 3 weeks,
when their mother was sadly killed on a road. We set to the task of handrearing them. However one, Emma, had problems feeding. This resulted in her being admitted to the vets 3 times in a week and a half. The last time for a week, where she spent time in a incubator and on a nebuliser. She is currently unable to eat solids, and needs to remain bottle fed until she is 8 weeks old, when she will then be admitted to see if she is able to eat solid food. To date her bill is £1,521.19

Added to this, Emma's brothers, Colin and Dennis were both
rushed to the vets due to collapsing in their pen for no apparent reason. To date this still remains a mystery. At one point we thought we had completely lost Dennis, but he rallied round and both are now doing well. Their bill, between them, was £465.08

Any assistance that can be given to help the branch with
these non-standard vets costs is greatly appreciated.
