Do you remember Catrina the old stray cat that was hit by a car earlier this month?

Catrina due to her injuries spent over a month at the vets and is now back in the care of the GSPCA and we are pleased to report she is improving daily despite needing a complicated operation and regular treatment and physio since her accident.

Staff and volunteers are working daily with Catrina to help her improve and all have a soft spot for the sweet but cheeky cat.

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.

We are pleased to report that Catrina the cat continues to improve although she is still under the care of the vets.

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.

Catrina the cat is still at the vets and as we write this has gone to be operated on.

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.

Last year an 18 year old cat called Lucy was brought into the GSPCA as sadly her owner could no longer care for her.

As all rescues will know trying to find the older cat a new home is extremely difficult as most are looking to adopt kittens or young cats.

On Saturday the GSPCA team were overjoyed when after 9 months of care at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews Lucy finally found her forever home and this week we have had an update on how she is getting along....

Kit Kat after 8 months and a lot of treatment for an infected mouth finds his forever loving new home

Submitted by Steve on 22:59, 17th Nov, 2016 | 0

Back in March a stray cat was rescued and made its way to the GSPCA.  Sadly no owner could be found and the poor cat had a number of health issues.

The GSPCA named the cat Kit Kat who is a lovely man and who came to us as a stray with one of the worst mouths we have ever seen.

After a number of tests it was found that he has calicivirus, due to this the poor boy had to have all his remaining teeth removed and also had a few courses of antibiotics.

Because of his condition he needed to be a house cat with no other pets present, especially cats.
