Do remember Catrina the cat who nearly died last year?

She was found having been hit by a car on a cold, dark, wet evening with multiple injuries, very thin and weak.

It took many months for Catrina to get back to health which included operations, medication and a lot of TLC.

Just before Christmas Catrina was given the okay to be rehomed by the vet and it didn’t take long to find her a wonderful new family.

We’ve just heard from Catrina’s new mum and wanted to share the great news.

With the driving wind and rain recently we are asking for your help to gift the cats a little something to keep them dry when the weather is really bad.

We have been trailing perspex clear sheets on some of the cats pens with great success.  Each cat pen has an outside section and we have found that hanging the perspex panels on the mesh the cats still have a lovely view and plenty of fresh air while keeping the worst of the weather out.

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.

Recently a young cat called Katie went to her forever home.

Christina Sauvarin new owner sent a message about Katie and said "We adopted Katie yesterday who we have now called Jessie."

"She has settled in extremely quickly and both Marc and I were delighted that she came for lots of cuddles on day one."

"She is still discovering her new home but has found several cosy spots to chill out."

"We absolutely love Jessie and would like to thank you and the whole team."

We overjoyed to report that Catrina is now at the GSPCA after over a month at Isabelle Vets.

Catrina was found on a wet, cold, dark evening 5 weeks ago after being hit by a car and has needed intensive care at the vets.

Sadly with no microchip and no owner this loving, affectionate and sweet cat has been cared for by the team at Isabelle Vets and the GSPCA.

Catrina needed an extensive operation and her veterinary treatment continues as she has a number of health issues but she is improving on a daily basis.

Sadly as no owner has come forward for Catrina in the 21 days required under Guernsey law.  The job we have now at the GSPCA with the help of Isabelle Vets is to get her well and strong enough to find her a home.

A huge thank you to all that have donated so far to her care, sadly we still have no idea who she belongs to but she has been improving each day.

We all have our fingers crossed for her and she will have to stay at the vets over the weekend at the very least.


Catrina the cat who nearly died needs an operation - could you help donate to her care

Submitted by Steve on 19:20, 15th Feb, 2017 | 0

You may remember Catrina the stray cat who was rescued collapsed, soaking wet, starving and with no hair or skin on her tail last week.

Catrina was in such a poor state she has had to stay at the vets where she has received intensive, around the clock care.

It is highly likely she was hit by a vehicle although had a number of other health issues when she was found.

She has been growing stronger each day but she will need an operation on her pelvis which with her care is going to cost nearly a £1000.
