Raising funds for poorly Sawley

28 November 2016

We are raising funds to pay for Sawley's operation. He is a 12 week old kitten who was found with a serious fracture to his thigh bone, he has had two pins put in to the bone to hold it together and is on 6 weeks of pen rest before the pins have to come out. While the vet was repairing his leg he also found that the muscle had broken down in his groin at the top of his other leg and that some of his internal organs had fallen through so he also had to have this...
