Can you help us look after Angus?
ANGUS was badly injured in a road traffic accident. He is an unneutered black male receiving treatment at the vets. He was brought in to them by a member of the public with massive head injuries and we have decided not to show you his photograph as it is rather distressing.
It was touch and go whether to have him put to sleep or not but it was thought he had a good chance of pulling through. However, the cost is going to be a huge drain on the coffers of the Branch as, although his owner was traced, they couldn't have him back.
It would be good to raise some money to cover the cost of his emergency surgery to try and save his prolapsed eyeball as well as the daily nursing involving tube feeding and medication which he will require over the next fortnight. So far, it looks like he only sustained head injuries. He is able to walk around now, however, and is passing urine on his own.
He has no sight at the moment but we are hoping he will regain this and overall he is progressing well. He is very brave and doesn't appear to be letting any of the above get on top of him.
We are now appealing for help with his vet bills and anyone who can donate even a small amount should send it to: The Treasurer, Cats Protection, Derby and District Branch, 31 Wardwick, Derby DE1 1HA. Please make cheques payable to: Cats Protection Derby and District Branch. Can you please mention with your donation that this is to help Angus? Many thanks.
PS: We will of course be looking for a home for him as soon as he's better.
