Last week we told you the strange tale of Sausage the cat; found terribly injured following a suspected road traffic collision. Strangely, once xrayed, it was clear that she had received some life-saving surgery only recently but was not microchipped, had no collar and despite extensive efforts by our team, no one had come forward to claim her or report her missing. Read the full original blog post here.
After officially coming into the branch’s care and further veterinary assessment it was clear that she would need her tail amputating due to a nasty degloving injury that left her with a lifeless, limp tail hindering her recovery. The operation cost £300 and thanks to several extremely generous donations we have raised half of the cost already and were able to go ahead with the op last week!
Today was her official ‘check up day’ after the surgery at the vets. We are very happy to report that her wound is healing very well and all signs are positive.

Sausage’s foster mum reports that she continues to love lots of fuss and attention. However, she’s been a little crafty and manages to avoid her antibiotic tablets! For this reason she’s had to have an injection instead – there’s no avoiding that! The next step is bound to be interesting as she needs to wear her ‘cone of shame’ for another week…..!
