Disney – Update

A very big “thank you” to everyone who has contacted us about Disney and contributed to his vet fees. Disney is much, much better and he has got his forever home with the best possible person, the one who has been looking after him all this time and nursing him.

We went up to Glasgow and saw the specialist and Disney went on treatment to deal with all the bacteria and crusting that had built up.  Then we went back again and he had biopsies and skin tests done.  For this he had to
be knocked out and ended up looking like a pincushion  with stitches.  All this and Disney never once complained. He was good as gold.  However, when a
special diet was prescribed, along with more medication, that’s where he drew
the line.  No way would he eat that rubbish.

He didn’t mind the tablets, however, and his skin was now improving by leaps and bounds.  So we are now reducing the medication and watching to see how he copes. After all the tests we still don’t know the cause of the problem.  It could be a food allergy but Disney wasn’t going to play ball there. 

We shall need another trip to Glasgow but at present Disney is doing very well, which is what matters.

So many, many thanks to everyone from us and Disney. We couldn't have helped him without you. Thank you. Thank you.


Disney has been in our care for 10 months.  He came in to the branch with scabs in various places and was treated for fleas and given anti-stress diffusers.  He kept on scratching so he was given steroid and antibiotic treatment, but he just got worse, especially across his forehead above his eyes, until he was very sore where he had scratched a lot.  

Disney is a happy, friendly cat who deserves a loving home and an itch-free
life and we are determined to get to the bottom of his problem with support from our local vet. Disney has been referred to a dermatologist and will be undergoing various tests and treatment.  This is all rather expensive so we are asking if you would like to help us help Disney.  There are an awful lot of things that can cause Disney’s symptoms so it may take some time to find out the cause but we are very determined and hopeful for a positive outcome.

We will be keeping you updated on this page.

Thank you so much for your support.
