Meet Patches who as of the 4th Nov is approx 10 weeks old.
Patches was taken into the animal hospital at Frankley having been seen with his stray mum looking extremely poorly. The people who’s garden they were frequenting was extremely concerned about him and managed to catch him, which was a good job as he was really close to death. He was hyperglycemic, and had flystrike….all caused by him ultimately nearly starving to death, where mum cat pbviously wasnt getting enough nourishment herself to be able to produce any milk to feed her baby :-(
Thankfully after several days on a drip and being fed small meals Patches begun to perk up. He was in the hospital for about 2 weeks but is a true little fighter and is now fit and well as you can see :-) .
He is in every way a normal little kitten now, who loves to play, eat and sleep …most likely in that order! Being a single kitten he needs to be rehomed to someone who is at home most of the day as he is too tiny to be left on his own during normal working hours. He has had his first vaccinations and is now ready to start looking for his perfect forever home. If you think that could be with you then please complete our adoption enquiry form on the website.
Please note we only rehome young kittens within our branch area as they need to come back to our vets once old enough for neutering and microchipping
