A few weeks ago Guardian Angels Animal Support, got a call from a vet in our area to say, that a very poorly kitten 5/6 weeks had been brought into them, but the owners, who had recently purchased it on Gumtree(!) could not afford any treatment.
So, the kitten had been surrendered to the vets, and in turn they were asking if we (GA) could take the kitten on. Simon, as he became known, was indeed a very sick kitten and it was believed that he would not survive. However, Simon had other ideas, and despite suffering kidney damage and other health issues, and following several weeks of intensive veterinary treatment he did survive - it must be said though he pulled through largely due to the care of his foster mum Tracey and all the staff at Vets in Old Isleworth.
He has now been adopted and we wish him a long and happy life with his new family.
Guardian Angels has several volunteers who want to share their experience with you.
