Around Christmas time two of our wardens where called to a cat that had been hit by a car and collapsed but still alive

The little cat was rushed to Isabelle vets where once she had been examined it was found that she had totally de gloved her tail, had a serious fractured pelvis, some internal bleeding and was a very poorly cat indeed.

However this little girl who has been named Catrina was prepared to fight and had her tail amputated that night along with other veterinary care.

Later on her pelvis was also repaired as well, this was the start of this lovely girls recovery.

Due to serious bruising along her back area Catrina took a long time to heal and also had to go onto special food as her bladder had also taken quite a hit. During all this time this girl has never let any of this get her down and is an amazing fighter.

Catrina was also voted Isabelle vets pet hero of the month due to the courage of this special little cat and a lot of staff fell in love with her.

Once her back had healed enough we then had to get her spayed as well, this also proved fun for the vet as some of her internal organs are not where they are meant to be, however when Catrina came back we had trouble trying to keep her quite after her spay, as far as she was concerned this was just a walk in the park.

This amazing girl does have problems with her skin which is still very sensitive due to the RTA and she may need further medication for this, Catrina needs a home as an only cat as she is a flu carrier.

Because of her previous injuries Catrina is not safe outside so would need a home as an indoor cat only.

This amazing cat would benefit hugely if her new owner/s where at home all or part of the day as she adores company. Catrina has been through so much and has shown huge amounts of courage and the will to survive has been unbelievable. 

Due to her history she will need to stay on her prescription food that she is on and will need more checks with the vets then a normal cat would do so.

Catrina would be fine with teenagers but not children and this is only due to the pelvis injury as she wiggles like mad when picked up and if she falls this could cause her damage.

Anna Paint Senior Animal Care Assistant said “Catrina is a truly amazing cat, she has been through so much and is such a lovely feline despite all of this.”

“We would love to find her a special home and are now appealing for that special someone to make this Christmas a happy one.”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Catrina was in a real state when she was rescued and the vets had a huge amount of work to help this very poorly cat left for dead on a dark wet winters night.”

“Catrina has been through a lot but we are all so pleased how well she has done at the GSPCA and we are now appealing to find her a loving new home.”

If you think you can offer this amazing cat a home then please contact the G.S.P.C.A on 01481- 257261.
