Des larmes pour Tommy/Tears for Tommy

Tommy a récemment rejoint notre refuge des Chats de Châtillon. Il a probablement été heurté par une voiture. Souffrant de 2 hanches fracturées et d’une queue écrasée, il a connu une souffrance inimaginable et il est resté totalement seul pendant peut-être 2 à 3 semaines avant d’être trouvé et emmené chez le vétérinaire.

Très abîmée, sa queue a commence à se gangrener. Il avait perdu tant de poids que ses incisives avaient commencé à percer ses gencives inférieures. C’est là que nous avons rencontré Tommy et sans prise en charge, il aurait été euthanasié. Nous avons regardé ses yeux infiniment tristes et en retenant nos larmes, nous lui avons promis qu’il ne souffrirait plus de la faim, de la douleur ou de la solitude.

A la suite de l’opération pour amputer sa queue nous l’avons ramené dans son nouveau foyer. Il passe ses journées à se reposer pour permettre à ses os de se ressouder et apprécie de multiples petits repas nourrissants. Sa douleur est sous contrôle et il profite de courts moments d’exercice calme autour de la maison. Sa démarche s’améliore mais reste instable et nous gérerons les problèmes quand ils se présenteront.

Il est très beau, affectueux et confiant. Après tout ce qu’il a traversé c’est un chat heureux et aimant. Sa soif de vivre est très émouvante.


Tommy recently joined our refuge at Chats de Chatillon.  He had probably been previously hit by a car.  Suffering with 2 broken hips and a crushed tail he had been in unimaginable pain and totally alone  for perhaps 2-3 weeks  before someone found him and took him to a vet. 

 Skin and bone, and in a pitiful condition his tail had turned gangrenous.  He had lost so much weight that his top incisor teeth had pierced holes through his lower gums.  This is when we first met Tommy and without anyone to take him he would have been put to sleep.   We looked into his soulfully sad eyes and holding back the tears we promised him that he would never suffer  from pain hunger or loneliness again.

Following an operation to amputate his tail we brought him back to his new home.  He spends his days resting to allow his bones to reset and enjoys lots of small  nutritious meals.  His pain is controlled and he enjoys short periods of time around the house gently exercising.  His walking is improving but still unstable and we shall deal with each problem as it arises.  

He is beautiful, affectionate and trusting .  After all he has been through he is a happy loving cat. His will to live has been heartmoving.
