Our story


We received a call on the night of Wednesday 8th January at 10.40pm from Emergency Vets, VetsNow, asking if we would accept into our care, Zion, a 9 month old, long haired tabby, unneutered Tom who had been involved in a road traffic collision. He was found to have a broken back leg. We agreed and he was kept comfortable overnight until Lime Trees Vets at Meir Park Veterinary Hospital took over his care on Thursday morning. An X ray revealed that his leg was broken in 2 places, but much more worrying was that they also found he had a diaphragmatic hernia resulting in his intestines, liver and stomach being pushed up into his chest cavity. This was putting pressure on his lungs and although he was purring and padding and seemed quite happy he needed to have the repair done within the next 24 - 36 hours.

Zion is an absolutely delightful young cat. The vets and nurses have all fallen in love with him because he is so friendly and adorable. We felt that we had to try to help him as we couldn't bear the thought of such a young cat having to put to sleep when there was something we could do to help. We agreed for the vet to operate to repair the hernia, fix his fractures with pins and plates and to neuter him.

Vet, Horatio, did the hernia repair on Friday 10th January and came across various problems so the operation took longer than anticipated and he was not able to repair the leg at the same time so that is scheduled for Monday 13th January. However it's not certain that the fractures can be repaired which means that Zion may have to have his leg amputated.

This little cat is being very brave and is receiving the best care possible but the cost of the veterinary care to save his life is very expensive as he will be having 2 operations plus weekend care and several overnight stays at the Veterinary Hospital together with a chest drain, a drip and medication for the pain and for any infection and inflammation.

This is a big undertaking for a small animal charity and we are hoping that you, like us, will want to help Zion. If you are able to help we would be most grateful.

Thank you so much. Zion deserves to have a happy life and between us we can try to ensure that he does.
