New Arrival : Thumper
New arrival today, meet little Thumper. She is 6 years old and has certainly had a very long day today.
A few days ago we received her referral from a vets in Hendon near London and today she arrived with us.
Poor little Thumper has had quite an ordeal these last 3 weeks… she was brutally attacked by another animal, probably a dog and when she presented at the vets she had a necrotic wound to her fore limb which resulted in amputation and following CT IMAGING, this revealed a crush injury – a non surgical fracture to her lumber spine.
She currently has no function of her hind limbs however whilst we are hopeful that once all the swelling reduces and the bones repair, she may regain function of her hind limbs – but there are no guarantees.
We have a long road to recovery together including intensive physiotherapy on all 3 limbs – which has already begun.
Thumper is the most seriously injured cat we have nursed in a very long time.
She is such a sweet girl and is currently tucking into her supper.
Thumper is going to need a lot of physical and financial support, and if you feel able to help… even by donating just £1.
