Purrs Needed Please!
You've probably heard of my Uncle Andrew. He's a neighbour of ours and a friend of my humans. Sometimes when they abandon me and go away they leave Uncle Andrew in charge of coming over and feeding me, and he is pretty good at it (except for that time he forgot and I nearly starved but we don't talk about that...)
Anyway, Uncle Andrew has two kitties of his own at home. Lofty is a black and white tuxedo kitty and Panther is a black kitty. They have a cat flap in their door and they like to go out and roam about people's gardens, unlike me because I only go out in my own garden and then only when I am with my humans.
Something sad has happened to Lofty. One night recently he didn't come home at dinner time with Panther, and then he turned up very late that night injured and dragging his left hind leg. Uncle Andrew thinks he might have been hit by a car. Lofty was rushed to the emergency v-e-t and over the last week he has spent a lot of time first having surgery and then recovering. Now he is home being fussed over by his humans and given lots of treats, but poor Lofty had to have his leg amputated and part of his tail too. Although Uncle Andrew says Lofty has already learned how to run around the house on three legs when he is supposed to be resting. So far Uncle Andrew has paid £1300 in v-e-t's bills (that's about $2120 for my Mericky friends) but he doesn't mind the cost, he is just glad that Lofty is still with his family, even though we think he might have used up a few of his nine lives. Uncle Andrew says Lofty and Panther are grounded to their own garden for now, too.
Please send purrs to poor Lofty for a swift recovery as he learns to get around on three legs and purrs to his family who have all been very worried about him.

It is best for them to be grounded to the garden. Much safer.
