Poorly cat Mary-Anne is rescued from the streetsPosted on 11 Jul 2012
The Blue Cross Lewknor rehoming centre looks after and finds happy homes for hundreds of cats and dogs every year. Animal welfare assistant Jess Hollis will be bringing you regular news from this busy centre – this week she tells us about cat Mary-Anne, who ended up on the streets when her beloved owner sadly died…
Poor Mary-Anne ended up as a stray when her owner passed away and there was no one to care for her.
Luckily she was picked up by a neighbour and brought to Blue Cross for some help.
Mary-Anne, who is around 12 years old, had alopecia and needed to have two mysterious lumps removed from her neck and behind her ear.
After recovering from her operation we then discovered another lump on her leg which was also removed.
The lumps were sent off for tests and, thankfully, came back negative for cancer and was likely to be a reaction to a vaccination.
Mary-Anne was in a bad way when she arrived and has been through a lot over the past few months.
Her world has been turned upside down but things are looking up for her now.
She is a loving and gentle girl that is just looking for an easy life and a cosy lap to curl up on.
We’ve now found her a loving home on our supported rehoming scheme, where Blue Cross pays towards the cost of any vet fees associated with her medical problems.
Mary-Anne is finally back in a home where she belongs.
