You may remember that a cat came in with her 2 kittens last September & she had her collar around her ribcage which had caused an injury under her armpit. Three attempts at stitching up the wound sadly failed as the skin kept breaking down. Sue was getting upset as the poor wee girl, named Pearl, was getting depressed. A lovely lady from Dunkeld offered her a home & was happy to have Pearl treated by her own vet – so she is now in a happy home environment which should help her wound to heal better. Sue received a call before Xmas to collect a feral cat from the other side of Dundee. As she was ill & then away, she was unable to pick up the cat until last week – when she got there the house was on the market & had been empty for a few months. The neighbours had been feeding the cat (who was not feral) but she had nowhere warm to go & her water bowl was frozen over. Sue felt guilty for not picking the cat up sooner & is now desperately looking for a home for her – she is grey & white, a fit & healthy 17 year old who is now called Socks. Thanks go to the Workforce Development Team from Fife Council for their box of goodies.
