Rosa Update

Just look at little Rosa, every day there is another breakthrough in her recovery.

It is now 5 weeks since little Rosa arrived with us at Bradford Cat Watch Rescue & Sanctuary. Whilst we don’t know what exactly led to her horrific injuries affecting her legs and face we have been literally nursing her around the clock for 5 weeks both day and night.

Our best guess is that the substance she was covered in was likely to be fibreglass resin or something similar. We cannot believe how brave beautiful Rosa is.

She was on intravenous fluids for the first 2 weeks. Her special dressings initially were being changed twice a day , then once once a day and now every other day Rosa is still on very strong pain relief and has just completed an extended antibiotics course and has been very comfortable throughout her care.

Every one involved in her care and beyond is so invested and totally rooting for her recovery. We are currently still weaning Rosa off Royal Canin Recovery Liquid and chicken however this is taking longer than expected. We are increasing her Royal Canin Sensitivity pouches pouches however she still likes the recovery liquid to lap!

Rosa is now 2.1kg which is over double her original bodyweight 5 weeks ago. Rosa’s road to recovery remains in its infancy and we have a very long road ahead of us.

In the Specialist Silicone Dressings alone (not the bandages and wrap) we have used over £1350 worth but worth every penny. Thank you to everyone who has supported and donated towards Rosa’s care so far.
