New Arrival: Bruno
New arrival at Bradford Cat Watch Rescue & Sanctuary .
This is baby Bruno.
At hours old (if that) Bruno was found alone and taken in to Abbey House Veterinary Hospital on Wednesday.
Shortly after, we collected Bruno to offer him intensive and supportive care.
Bruno will have virtually no immunity and being motherless at such a yiung age, his prognosis is very guarded. Our Critical Care volunteers are doing their best and started with feeding Bruno every 30 mins.
This morning Bruno is taking his feeds really well every hour and is gaining weight nicely.
We do not advocate the practice of handing out orphaned kittens to poor mums who are already under such an enormous strain raising their own babies.
Not only is this unfair on mum it also carries a huge risk of cross infection.
Many feline diseases lie dormant for several weeks or months before symptoms present.
