We received a call from a lady called Penny. She said she was on her way to do the school run and spotted a cat walking around in circles in the middle of the road with cars swerving to avoid him. So she picked him up and went door knocking asking everyone she came across if they knew who this little one belonged to. No one knew him, so Penny managed to get someone else to pick up her children from school so she could get the cat to safety.
We left immediately to check the cat for a chip. The cat wasn’t chipped and we made an emergency appointment at Manor Vets in Chatham for the cat as he was extremely underweight, walking in circles and his pupils were dilated, we feared the worst.
At the vets we paid for him to have a blood test (which came back really good), a cortisone injection in case he had neurological issues, a convenia for antibiotics in case he had anything underlying, flea and worm treatment as he had some flea dirt and ear drops because he had some ear mites.
Such a beautiful boy, and he allowed all the fussing. We were under strict instructions from the vet to keep a close eye on him to make sure he was going to be alright in our cat pens and not hurt himself.
After a few hours someone commented on his post and said his name is Oscar and he belonged to her nan! We were over the moon that he was loved and owned.
We took Oscar home straight away.
Oscar will now be booked into the vets for a microchip, although he is an indoor cat his owner can’t bear the thought of him being lost again. Oscar has renal failure, is 12 years old and is completely blind. He is under vet care for his issues.
We would like to thank Penny for everything she did to help this boy. Xxx
