Precious kitty says Thank you!

She was scheduled to have her operation on Tuesday but on Sunday morning we got a call from the SPCA in Masterton offering to do her surgery free of charge that day at their desexing caravan. She had her op, came through with flying colours and is feeling very much better.
So a big thank you to the SPCA for helping us out like that – we saved $200 which is very much appreciated.

Another big thank you to one of our wonderful transporters Pete Roberts. At very short notice Pete made not one but two trips from Featherston to Masterton and back for us that day. I’m sure there are better things he could have done with his Sunday so we are very grateful to him.

And last but not least thank you, thank you, thank you to our lovely supporters who donated money for Precious’s treatment. Now we only have to pay $140 for her ultrasound and much more than that was donated. As we got her surgery for free if anyone would like a refund please message us and we will send you one. We do need to desex some cats at one of our small colonies so we intend to put any money leftover into doing that.

Here are some pics of her after the op looking happy and relaxed and one with her foster carer's son. She's a very lucky kitty indeed!
