Minstrel, the pirate cat
Minstrel, our cat, was hit by a car on Wednesday morning and ran off into the fields near our house.
His fur is growing back beautifully... and he now looks like someone actually owns him again! He has got his full appetite back and has well and truly found his voice in the household again, even though he is still desperate to be back in the big wide world of the outdoors! All in good time...
We still have £185 left to pay the first part of his bill... and Friday will bring more costs, so would love to reach our goal by then. We have been saving to pay the extra - but every penny will really help!
My thanks again to everyone who have donated to help Minstrel - the difference in him really is amazing!
The main problem he has at the moment is that he is suffering greatly with the wire in his mouth. It seems to be causing him great discomfort and he has had some sores and ulcers and even some bleeding at times.
He is due to go back to the vets next Wednesday to see if his jaw has healed enough for his second operation to remove his wire... and with the first bill not yet fully covered, we are again saving up for the extra pennies his second operation. At the moment we still have just over £100 to pay to cover his first £1400 bill, and then we are thinking the second operation will cost at least a further £300.
So, with quite a few pennies still left to pay, we still need to try and reach our target. We have had so much support so far... and are so nearly there!
I have spent some time taking some new photos of my little man today... so thought you may like an update!
