GSPCA Animal Advent Calendar Day 8 - Please help cats like Tomsie Hope and Bruce who arrived as strays needing operations

Submitted by Steve on 12:44, 8th Dec, 2017 | 0

In the last few weeks the GSPCA have helped two stray cats with major health issues.

Bruce a grey and white cat arrived at the GSPCA with a ruptured diaphragm and required a massive operation to help save his life costing just over £1000.  Bruce is recovering well in the cattery at the GSPCA but if he hadn’t been seen by the vets he wouldn’t be alive today.

Tomsie as she was called but nicknamed Hope by a few of the staff is a black cat that was rescued from St Peter Port and we have sadly been unable to find an owner.
