I joined a group on facebook which is rescuing cats from, among other places, Romania, with a team of wonderful Romanian rescuers and vets, who are fighting hard for the feral cats there. And there was one who stole my heart.
She had had her feet tied up so tightly together, and by 10-year-old CHILDREN for goodness sake that she was gangrenous. Will she lose one or more legs? as yet unknown . But if I'm permitted to have her, however many legs she ends up with, she's going to have a home here. Black cats are not popular in Romania.
Her name is PIXIE and I named her in memory of Leprechaun, the tabby cat caught in a trap whose story I was following online.
This is the group Anya's blind cats and dogs which is mostly set up for special needs animals... there's an auction set up there, so do go take a look, if you're in Europe especially the UK! here for auction
Cute isn't she, so alert despite the pain..
Anyone who does not want to see graphic, don't go own any further as there's a picture of her leg
