CAT OF THE MONTH

Beauty

Beauty

At the advanced age of 18 BEAUTY’s world fell apart.   Her beloved owner died so she was homeless and his heartless relatives were going to have her put to sleep.    Fortunately it was suggested to a friend of the deceased that he contact C.L.A.W.S. and we took her in.

She is a sweet natured, gentle soul.   After a week or so to settle in we took her to Alma Vets for an MOT.   It was then that we discovered that the "mole” near her right eye, in fact, was a deep seated ulcer.   Her left eye was less severely affected.   The ulceration is caused by the Herpes virus which can lay dormant in the body until triggered.   Stress can cause it to flare up which makes perfect sense in Beauty’s case as she had lost her owner and her home in one fell swoop.

Time was of the essence as any delay might result in her eye perforating.    In fact, it did "pop” during the operation but despite this the surgeon managed to attach a corneal graft and create a third eyelid flap to protect the graft.   Described by one of his colleagues as a "brilliant piece of surgery” it saved the sight of her right eye and within a few days she was discharged into C.L.A.W.S. care.

There followed a long and complicated period of after-care – at one time her carer was putting eye drops into her eyes seven times a day – and one or two scares along the way (happily unfounded) the great day came when her eyes were free of ulceration and no further medication was required.

We are now looking for a home for BEAUTY
It must be quiet with no children or other animals.   She would be happy as an indoor cat.

Are you that special person who will give her a loving home in her twilight years ?

She will make a delightful companion for an older person as she is very affectionate and wants nothing more than lots of love and, of course, food and warmth.   She even likes her long silky coat being groomed.

She will be homed under our People for Pets’ Scheme which means that C.L.A.W.S. will pay any veterinary fees that may arise.
