Submitted by Steve on 12:19, 19th Jul, 2023 | 0

Every day the GSPCA rush animals to the vets needing vet care and treatment and one very special cat needing an operation is Starsky.

Starsky is a feral cat from Sark who we are hoping to return him to the island where someone can watch over him once he has had a much needed operation.

Starsky has already had blood tests to check he is healthy other than a nasty eye issue requiring an entropion operation which will cost with care around £500.
