Young mother cat Hope is seeking a home with her two bouncy kittens Casper and Bobbie

The amazing rescue and recovery of Hope and her kittens:

A man who had been feeding a stray cat and her kittens in his shed, found the mother cat horrifically injured with her front leg torn off. Although he told us he normally couldn’t get anywhere near her, she was so weak from loss of blood that he managed to get her into a basket and brought her straight in to our clinic with her two three week old kittens. Hope, as we called her, was rushed straight into theatre as this terrible wound was contaminated with earth, gravel and bits of twig and she was still bleeding. She was warmed up throughout her surgery as her body temperature was so low. Hope made it through the long operation and 48 hours later, after lots of intensive care, she started eating tiny bits of food from our hands.

No -one knows how this injury happened - the shed was right next to railway tracks, but whatever did happen to her, that brave little girl made it back to the shed, so she could feed her babies, before collapsing. The kittens had to be washed and dried as they were covered in her blood and they’ve had to be bottle-fed as mum was on very strong pain relief and wasn’t well enough to look after them.

After a couple of days we returned the kittens to Hope and she immediately started washing and cuddling them. You may remember the story of Hope, the brave stray who was in a tragic accident. She had her leg torn off but still managed to get back to the kittens she was rearing in a garden shed.

Hope is so happy to have been reunited with her kittens. and has healed beautifully. She was on very strong pain relief for several days after her major surgery when she first came in to us and was in a state of euphoria because of the drugs, enjoying strokes, having her tummy tickled and cuddling her babies when we were able to put them back with her. 

When we weaned her off her pain relief, she became the way we suspect she was before her dreadful accident - rather bad-tempered and not wanting to be touched. Because she loves the kittens so much, we’re determined to try to get through to her so she can go to a home with them - she is slowly getting better, but will probably always be wary of humans.

We would love to home this little family together. The kittens are playful and super friendly but Hope remains very shy. They looking for an experienced owner in a safe home where they can have outdoor access through a catflap
