New arrival @ BCWR
This is little Betty.
Betty was brought to us as a poorly stray from the BD3 area of Bradford.
When we admit a cat to the rescue, we have a legal surrender document that the finder/ owner must complete.
When Betty arrived with us we routinely scanned her for a microchip… and surprisingly … she had a chip.
We looked up the details on the chip and they were identical to the ones on our surrender form… proving that this 9 YEAR OLD Bengal cat wasn’t a stray at all…. and because she was ill, in pain, off her food and most probably could no longer be used a breeding machine… they ” got rid”.
However many tears the “finder” shed at my gate as she handed her over … means nothing.
Betty has been in the vets all day today and as we predicted yesterday she has been diagnosed with a squamous cell carcinoma under her tongue ( a type of cancer).
Betty is currently happy, bright, eating and enjoying life.
We have opted to give her Palliative care for the rest of her life.
