Woo hoo what wonderful news.  Just goes to show what a bit of TLC and a good vet can do.  I hope this special boy manages to find his forever home very soon xxx

Hmm maybe so, But I think Felek plays a huge part in this with his will and fight to survive. Without that spirit in him I asure he wouldnt of made those first few days especialy! Our vet is stunned by his progress and fight for life :)

24/01/11

10.00am: Felek is at the vets now and his having wire removed from his jaw. Our vet is also doing another xray to recheck his pelvis and doing a stimulated feed just before xray to check his inestines are still running smoothly after the operation. Though he is blind in his right eye the eye is clearing up and though looks cloudy and different we have decided not to have it to removed. Felek has also had his 1st vaccination today. I will add an update later when we have him back.

 

18.32pm and felek is back with the all clear! Wire removed and intestines all fine. Felek is now ready to find a home of his own. I cannot beleive 4 weeks ago this boy came in in the terrible state he did, thinking he wouldnt pull through. In this short time he has fought every paw of the way to recover and suceeded.

 

WELL DONE FELEK!!!

I will do a photo shoot tomorrow :)

12/01/11 Not much to update really. Felek is proving the fighter he started out to be and doesnt let anything get him down at all. He adores human company bless him. I am letting him out the hospital cage more and more each day which he is really enjoying and he seems to like to help me out and be at my side. Below are some photos from today and if it works a video clip :)

11/01/11: No change at the moment and still stable.. I have learnt he has expensive taste on foods with only eating JWB dry and I have now discovered for wet food those little tiny round tins of Gourmet cat food..

He is very effectionate bless him and doing well on his back right leg for walking. He is very vocal when talkign to you or letting you know he wants your attention which will include growling lol.. A wonderful character all round.

I hope that he enjoys his dins,

He sounds a lovely little chap  :Luv:

At the moment it is 3 tins for a pound at asda so trying to keep stocking up.. The JWB is no worries as get a sack cheap from cash and carry and thats what my own cat eats so always got it in :) As long as he is eating well I am happy, he needs to gain some weight bless him as dont like feeling the back bone when I stroke him :(

Felek has been castrated.. Xrays show the hip/pevis is knitting back together on it's own. It is now sit and wait and he is due back in 3 weeks for a check up and wire to jaw to be removed. We will then start vaccinations.

 

06/01/11

Photos of Felek today. Still looking a little rough bless him but he has come along way. He is having trouble passing stools now so on Lactulose to help.

05/01/11: Felek is at the vets again today. He is having another xray today to re check hip/pelvis and to make sure intestines and bladder are still intact internaly.. He is also being neutered today. He is blind in the right eye through trauma and there is still some uleration there but thats clearing up. Going to leave the eye a little longer to see if it fully heals. Will update again later when I go collect him and we know more from Xrays.

I am really pleased with Feleks recovery from 1st two operations so far!! God he is a fighter alright! passing stools normaly now, eating well and managing to move better on back legs and hip.. Loves attention and cuddles.. Still worried about eye though, still swollen and bulging very slightly and he cant see much with it at all so hisses at shadows. You have to talk to him when approaching him so he doesnt hiss with worry.. Im not sure his eye can be saved..

We have had some wonderful donations towards his vet bills so far.. If anyone can still make a possible donation to help still as we are a long way off yet.. I will get the vets to print off his treatments so far and scan to pc when we go back on wednesday. Thank you for the donations xx

Oh and I will get some more photos of him also :)

I've had an email today and a lady is coming tomorrow as she thinks Felek could possibly be her cat thats been missing 2 months.. She has described him well and said he answers to the name jack which he has responded to (but then i know alot respond to sound also rather than specific name)

I have explained to her everything and that i will not let him back unless she can gaurentee she can and will continue and pay for further treatment needed for him for his hip and eye that still needs seeing too.. I am concerned that she hadnt had him neutered (if it is her cat) and would vet care carry on for him..

Poor puss cat, I remember how hard it was when Casper lost his leg after an RTA (and how expensive), do you have vets details so we can donate directly?
