Beautiful Fusa arrived at the Newbury & District Adoption Centre as a stray with cat flu symptoms and a very obvious head tilt. She had a serious ear infection which was affecting her balance, causing nausea. Antibiotics and ear treatments didn’t helped to alleviate the symptoms.
Xrays revealed the problem was a polyp causing all the symptoms. Specialist scans and treatment were needed, which are costly so we set up a JustGiving page to appeal to cat lovers to help Fusa to receive the treatment she deserved.
Unbelievably, we smashed our target of £3,800 within 24 hours! We were so overwhelmed and grateful for everyone’s generosity.
Our little lady had her operation in December but it didn’t go exactly to plan and she gave us quite a scare. It was a very worrying time for all the staff here at the centre. Poor Fusa had post-surgery complications and it was very touch and go for a few days.
Fusa had to have a tracheostomy during her operation and was in intensive care for several days. She spent many weeks in a foster home with our Cat Care Assistant Adele and gave Adele a fright when her tracheostomy wound opened. So back to the vets Fusa went!
The above photo shows Fusa settling down in Adele’s home. The picture quality isn’t great simply because she needed to be kept calm and quiet with low lighting. She had a long recovery ahead, longer than originally thought, but we are so happy that Fusa received the treatment she deserved and got all the love and care she needed.
We’re so pleased to be able to tell you that she found a happy home in February with a lovely couple.
Here she is going home with her new owner and settling in their home.
