Pretty Pebbles came to us in such a terrible condition that she probably would not have survived much longer. She has been diagnosed with Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV), and like Miss Polly, she must stay in isolation.
When she arrived Pebbles weighed only 1 kg. She was such a good girl being cleaned up and cared for. Never getting cross or lashing out, even though she was in a lot of pain.
The photos below show the awful condition that Pebbles was in when she first came to us, and how beautiful she is now.
The Chats de Chatillon cat refuge takes in abandoned, abused and injured cats and kittens on a daily basis. They get calls to take in ‘refugees’ all hours of the day and night, and they very rarely say No.
New cats often need to be isolated until they are given a clean bill of health by the vet. Sadly, some of these cats have infections or viruses that can be treated, but cannot be cured. They have less chance of being adopted, and will remain in isolation for the rest of their lives.
Having portable units will improve the quality of their lives enormously. We are desperately trying to raise funds to purchase two units. So cats like Pretty Pebbles and Little Miss Polly, will be able to lay in the sun and play in the grass, without being a risk to other animals.
We are delighted to say that the wonderful team at Hot Tubs In France are now sponsoring Pebbles. The monthly payment they give us helps towards Pebbles’ medication and special diet costs. We can’t thank them enough!
