Due to recurring gingivitis, Clochette often struggles to eat!
Bijou is an 8-year-old cat who was living in an apartment with 50 other cats. The lack of space and close quarters led to inbreeding… Fortunately, we were able to rescue her!
Bijou suffers from chronic cat flu. In the winter, she spends her days under a heat lamp, so weakened by her condition. She even vomits mucus occasionally, as her respiratory passages are heavily congested by the virus! We try to give her inhalations to provide some relief.
With a set of blankets, Bijou would have an easier time maintaining her body heat this winter. She would also be better protected from dampness and potential drafts, which would help prevent her from becoming even more ill.
We have to take in an additional 50 cats at once… Compared to last year, our association's budget is in deficit. And things might not improve: someone has abandoned over 50 cats, which we will have to take care of in addition to the fifty or so we already look after.
Many are old or ill and may never be adopted. The association has been running for eight years, but we have never faced such challenges!
