Our cat Jerimiah (Jerry) was deliberately shot in his own street on Sunday 24th November. He was found stuck on a fence by a neighbour trying to get home. Unfortunately our insurance won't cover the life saving operation he needs to remove the two pellets in his back and ultimately save his life.
Jerry is a lovely cat and this has shaken our family - how could someone do something like this?
Please, if you are able - help us save Jerry's life by donating whatever you can afford so that he can have his life saving surgery.

Hi All, just a quick update on Jerry's healing. He's eating and drinking well and moving about the house more now though still struggling with his left leg somewhat. However, each day we see a slight improvement and increase in the use of his leg. His tail remains completely still.. . . . .

Jerry has had slight improvement in the last 48 hours whereby he has ‘purposefully’ been able to poop, all be it after some laxative to help him along the way. It was observed by vet staff that he consciously wanted to poop. Good news. However, on the urine front, staff. . . . .

Been for another visit to see Jerry today, still on pain killers and unable to urinate independantly. He had some laxatives and was able then to poop, so this is a good sign. When visiting he stood moved around his cage and made himself more comfy. Thank you all. Gill
