An update on last week’s feral family – the tortie mum has turned out to be a domestic & the 3 kittens, who had been living in damp & cold conditions since day one, all had diarrhoea & runny eyes, which has now cleared up. They were also full of worms & are being treated for this too. Thanks go to Jenny, our new fosterer, who has her work cut out taming the kittens! We & CPL have an ongoing situation dealing with a feral colony in the scrap yard behind Asda in Dundee – we were unable to continue with trapping due to lockdown. In April there was a huge fire & sadly some of the cats perished. They were kept at the scrap yard for vermin control but the owners had no interest in having them neutered or feeding them – poor souls. Thankfully, a colleague of Sue’s has been feeding them faithfully twice a week. On returning to trap the cats last week, a domestic, un-neutered tom cat was caught – he had an abscess in his ear &, to our horror, it was full of maggots so he must be feeling much better now it has been cleaned out & treated. Sue is almost certain that he can be turned around & re-homed. Out ‘Muchty shop is missing the daily visits from cat Bruno who has sadly passed away. Big thanks for all the food sent through Whinnybank’s Amazon wish list.
