Quigley (Kingspark, Glasgow)
Remember Quigley who went missing from his home in Kilchattan Drive, Kingspark, Glasgow on Thursday 11 July 2013? We are delighted to let you know that Quigley was reunited back with his Mum on 4 September 2013. Quigley was picked up in Croftfoot, Glasgow on 17 August 2013 by the SSPCA. He was found unable to walk in a garden within the area and initially it was thought he had been involved in an RTA. Further tests confirmed this was not the case and it became obvious it was more of a neurological problem, possible toxicity or thiamine deficiency. After 17 days of intense treatment Quigley started to improve, although still not his old self yet he was on the road to recovery. The SSPCA contacted Glasgow Cat Protection after looking through our “Lost” cat section and Quigley was reunited back home with his Mum the very next day. Words can’t describe how Quigley’s Mum feels at having Quigley back home and she has let us know that Quigley is improving daily and gradually putting on weight.
