Success Story - Alan

This success story just goes to show how you donations have helped safe this cat’s life. Back in June of this year Alan came into our care after his owner sadly had to go into a nursing home. During his health check with our vet, we soon discovered his ear was very infected and starting bleeding upon examination. Further tests by our vet revealed Alan needs a life-saving surgical TECA operation (Total Ear Canal Ablation). We set a target of £550 to help cover his operation and aftercare. Our deputy manager Phil launched an appeal for Alan so he could have this life-saving surgery.


In just 48 hours after our appeal’s launch, we managed to smash our target raising over £700 plus gift aid will increase this. All of these surplus donations will go towards helping any future cats in need of veterinary treatment. We would like thank everyone who has donated towards Alan’s treatment. Alan had his operation on the 16th June and made a brilliant recovery. He is now deaf in the ear that has been operated on but he is no longer suffering with the pain he would have been in. Alan was lucky enough to find a home with a nice family in July.



We have received an email from his owners this week, they have said “He’s really settled now and definitely part of the family, he’s become best friends with our border terrier” We are so pleased he’s enjoying life! We would like to thank his owners for sharing their photos with us and letting us know how he is getting on.
