Gasket Says Ohai!

Meet Gasket. A rather bedraggled adult girl with some kind of eye problem, she’s the most affectionate of pusses and will be looking for her forever home in the not too distant future, when she’s recovered a bit from her ordeals.

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.
