Make a difference to an animal in need!

She was covered in urine.

A member of the public heard a cat crying, and found Barbara trapped in a taped up litter tray. She had been thrown out like rubbish, and was very frightened.

Lucky to be found

Upon receiving a call about Barbara, our Animal Welfare team advised the member of the public to bring her straight in. It was then discovered that not only was Barbara trapped, she was also covered in urine, and her collar had been wrapped twice around her neck. It was suffocating her. Our vets checked her over and cleaned her up, before settling her into our cattery to recover.
