Bizarrely, I was just driving past the Dunmanway turnoff on my way home today when I got a call from Brookpark Vets in Dunmanway. A wee puss had been handed in – found in a car engine, but obviously neglected for a good while before she hitched. She’ll be checked by our local vet later today, but it doesn’ t look like she’s got any burns or damage from the engine encounter. She does, however, seem to have some kind of eye trouble – her pupils are very dilated and somewhat translucent. And her coat is, quite frankly, a mess – matted, bald in patches, discoloured and skanky. But she’s the friendliest wee thing – purred the whole way back to Bantry and head butts at the drop of a hat.
I’ll get more details on her after Fachtna has seen her. She seems healthy despite her condition, and we’ll keep her for a wee while before looking for a forever home. If you think you might be interested do get in touch in the meantime – she’s gonna need some lovins, and she’ll return em in kind I’ve no doubt.
