This handsome, brave lad has been through a lot but has come through fighting!
Carrots was found by a member of the public in October 2016 stuck in a garden fence. Bradford Cat Watch Rescue was contacted and without hesitation took him home to take care of him. He was estimated to be around only 3 weeks old.
Unfortunately, Carrots has a congenital eye defect, which meant that one eye had never developed and the other was severely ulcerated. This was treated with medication to see if it would resolve, but was unsuccessful. After further consultations with our vet, it was decided the ulcerated eye needed to be removed, this would then leave him completely blind.
Carrots was admitted for surgery and the operation performed. It was a very risky procedure, not only due to Carrots size and young age, but also because the eye had burst.
Thankfully the operation went OK! No longer than 30 minutes after the operation, Carrots was up and about and eating plenty of food. We couldn’t have asked for a smoother recovery.
Carrots now has a full life (and diary) at the rescue, among having fun with his friends at the rescue he also has many engagements fundraising, and he also does Pets As Therapy Visits.
