A Happy Tail from our Miracle Kittens
Olivia was found in the Thetford area at the beginning of June by a member of the public, dragging herself
along the pavement. She had a big open wound on the top of her right hind leg. Olivia was taken to the
local vet in Thetford where they dressed the wound and made her comfortable before being transferred
to our vet at CCLW the next day for intensive treatment on the wound.
By day 4 the wound wasn’t healing as well as expected and due to the pain and discomfort caused to Olivia
whilst dressing the wound, she needed to be sedated under a general anaesthetic to have the wound
cleaned & dressed on a daily basis for 6 days.
Olivia remained at the vets for the next 6 weeks until she was well enough to be transferred to the cattery
in mid-July to recuperate and allow the wound to continue healing,
Olivia continued to make a good recovery at the cattery where she was microchipped and
vaccinated in readiness for re-homing.
At the beginning of August we noticed Olivia had a bigger than usual belly and her nipples were rather
large. She was taken to the vets for a check up on her wound and the vets also confirmed Olivia was heavily
Olivia was then fostered by one of our staff, waiting for her babies to arrive, but the vets were concerned for
the kittens health due to all the GA and meds Olivia had been on in the early stages of her pregnancy.
Bjorn (fluffy grey & white), Benny (black & white), Agnetha (naughty Tortie) & Anni (Baby Olivia) (ABBA
fans will recognise the names)! were born on 5th August between 1am – 4am all thankfully fit & healthy!
The happy ending to this story is that they have all found their forever homes with Bjorn & Agnetha being
adopted together, as are Olivia and Anni & little Benny is going to a home that has another cat & dog for
him to play with...
