Ripley's story : a ‘tail’ about the unseen side of our job.
We received a phone call about the ‘tolerant’ Mr Ripley from a lady who was out in the countryside in Mid Devon. She said that she had found a bedraggled biscuit-coloured cat. The lovely lady then literally went ‘the extra mile’ for an animal in distress, and took him too the vet. After an examination, ‘Ripley’ as he was then named, was found to have two massive gashes in his throat, severe ear problems, and had bad teeth. He was clearly aged, and later it was discovered that he had also contracted FIV.
