Thumper Update

” Winning is about struggle, effort, optimism and never ever giving up”
Poor little Thumper arrived with us in May from Medivet in Hendon.

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 had no function of her hind limbs however whilst we were hopeful that once all the swelling reduced and the bones repair, she may have regain function of her hind limbs- but there were no guarantees.

We have has a long road to recovery together right the way through lockdown 1, 2 and 3 including intensive physiotherapy and TENS THERAPY on all 3 limbs.

Thumper is the most seriously injured cat we have ever nursed…….. and just look at her now!!!
We hope in the future when it is completely safe to do so that 6 year old Thumper will become available for adoption …. but certainly not at the moment.
