Bandit was rescued by Blue Cross of India four years ago with both her hind legs crushed. She was fitted with prosthetic legs, the first such surgery for cats in India. She recovered well and was able to walk and have a normal life. She is an adorable and energetic cat. She loves being with other cats and is mischevous. Over the last four years, the prosthetic legs have become worn out and have to be replaced.
Last week, measurements have been taken for the new prosthetic legs. Once the new legs are made, she will be fitted with them. This requires a minor surgery and post operative care. Your kind donations will be utilized for Bandit's new legs as this has become a matter of priority.
We are grateful for your donation which will give Bandit a new lease of life.We will keep you posted on Bandit's progress.
In this report we would like to share with you on how are feline residents are faring in the cattery. All the cats are well and healthy. We are sharing a picture of Leo with his caretlaker. Leo was arrived at the hospital with an injured leg. His hind leg and to be amputated and now he is completely recovered and happily running around in the faciliy. He is neutered and vaccinated. His happy story could not have been possible without your kind donation. Very often we admit disabled cats that cannot be left outside. We will continue with the story of the disabled cats in our next report also. Thirty cats and about 500 dogs have been neutered over the past two months.
Atanu, the cat section caretaker, has been taking care of the cats for about a year. He says he enjoys caring for the cats. He is very sincere and goes to great lengths in ensuring the well being of the cats.
Samson, Kala, Romeo, Checkers and Bruno have been rescued by Blue Cross of India recently. All these cats are disabled and have to be placed in our shelter permanently. These are street cats and have no one to care for them. Samson has lost his foreleg and now runs around happily in the shelter. Kala, which means black, has weak hind legs and moves around the shelter with slight difficulty. She is shy and keeps to herself most of the time. Romeo, the handsome cat, has his hind leg amputated and is the most friendly cat one has ever come across. Checkers and Bruno have sadly lost both their forelegs and have just been moved to the shelter.
Your valuable donations have helped us treat these disabled cats and give them a second chance. The cats are vaccinated and neutered. Every month several injured cats are rescued by Blue Cross of India and treated. We are grateful for your kind donations which has made this possible.
