Despite her horrible injuries Banjo was an otherwise solid, healthy wee thing. We had to bathe and cream her feet twice daily, much to her disgust – she would wiggle and struggle like billyo initially until, realising there was no escape, she would go limp in resignation of the (much needed) torture we were putting her through, making quite distinctive and charming noises of a mix of growl and whine. I loved this look of disgust at the whole process on her poor face (top photo). A very brave wee kitten. We managed to keep infection at bay with the treatments and you wouldn’t know to look at her today she’d had such serious injuries. She also had trouble with eye infections but they also cleared up with treatment, good food and care.
She emigrated to the UK and you’ll find lovely photos of her in her new home in the Galleries section, here.
