Feral Leeds cat in need of £1,000 surgery leaves Leeds Cat Rescue 'running on fumes' in urgent fundraising appeal
A feral Leeds cat had to undergo surgery including a leg amputation - a process which cost £1,000 and left Leeds Cat Rescue 'running on fumes'.
Leeds Cat Rescue says it is spending £1,000 on treatment for a feral cat which has been rescued.
The cat was found covered in tics and carrying an injury which means he cannot bear his own weight.
He was x-rayed and found to have a complex fracture on one leg which led to an amputation.
The cat has now had surgery and is recovering and will 'most likely need a very safe outdoor placement' once healed.
The charity says the process has left a hole in its finances and is urgently appealing for help.
A spokesman said: "This little guy is a feral, his main feeder noticed he was covered in tics and had a new injury causing him not to weight bear.
"He was trapped and on x-ray he had a complicated fracture of his leg, it was best to amputate. He has now had his surgery and is recovering on crate rest, he will most likely need a very safe outdoor placement when healed.
"His treatment will cost around £1,000 due to lack of fundraising opportunities of late we are running on fumes if you can help at all our Paypal is [email protected]"
