We received a call to rescue a cat with a broken leg at a freight yard. On arrival we discovered there were 19 other semi-feral cats living there and they were all unneutered.
We have now neutered and returned the colony and are treating the cat with the broken leg. The cats are well fed and welcomed at the site.
One older female cat was friendly and we were told that she was the first cat to turn up at the yard and is the original mother of the colony.
She must have once must have been someone's pet who was abandoned or got lost - if only they had neutered her!
She is middle-aged and required treatment for Horners Syndrone which was causing her eye to droop. She has made a full recovery, and has been neutered and has now found a new home.
