Pudding was taken by the SSPCA after being picked up off the street in a state of near collapse. They kept her for a week and then rehomed her to me When we got her she was 1.7kgs, we got her blood tested and she was hyperthyroid and had a urine infection. Her owners obviously didn't bother to take her to a vet and she had become very ill- after she was given an antibiotic and medication to control her thyroid levels- and some food :(, she was like a new cat. She is very affectionate and sleeps on me at night, often wakening me for a cuddle at 3 in the morning by gently patting me on the face.:roll:

That really is an amazing change. I bet helga feels better for losing all that weight too! Dare I ask what happened to loki?

My cat wakes me up anywhere between 6-8 with a face pat so that I can give her her breakfast, even if someone else has fed her. It has to be me to take her to her food! And her face pat has claws :? But I love her :love:

Loki's story is sad but not horrible. I got a call from a mental health nurse who we rehomed a dog to ( she has kept in touch with us) asking if we could help with Loki. His owner was 19, had mental health problems and was being made homeless, she was also being taken into hospital for quite a long time and then into a half way house. She was devoted to Loki and he was in forste care but the fosterer was moving abroad and there was nobody else who would take him, other resces were full so it looked like he was going to be PTS. I was not keen to foster long term- what happen if the animal gets ill, do I keep it seperate from mine for months ( taking up a room) which we don't frequent often. She decided to rehome him to us and wanted updates as to how her was getting along but I've heard nothing since he arrived so I don't know what her current situation is.

Helga's story is the one that really breaks my heart- she had been a loved and looked after cat until the owners had children, Helga's weight rose to 8kgs over 2 years and she then started peeing in the house due to cystitis- the owner took her in to be PTS because of the peeing, she is only 9 and they didn't want to try antibiotics. I think she must have been totally traumatised by the kids because she is fine now, has lost over 1kg and is starting to play and is a cat I really have taken to.
