Caturday - a happy ending for George

The star of today’s Caturday is already famous. His name is George and he featured in the Derby Telegraph 10 days ago because he needed a home.

It had to be a very special home as George, who is only five months, has already had an eventful life with more than his fair share of problems.  If you're an animal-lover, get your tissues ready. If you're not an animal lover, then take your heart of stone away with you and come back for crafting tomorrow!

So, back to George. This poor little mite was dumped in a garden in Derby. Who would DO that? Sadly, lots of people do. Fortunately, George was lucky – he was taken in by Cats’ Protection. They discovered that his eyes had not developed properly and they had to be removed (in a VERY expensive operation, according to one of my downlines, who happened to visit the same vet last week). Then poor little George had to have a further lengthy op for an undescended testicle.

But there’s a happy ending to George’s story as my colleague, Ella, a reporter at the Derby Telegraph, has taken on the challenge of raising a blind kitten. Happily, she says he’s settling in well, following her everywhere she goes. He’s even managed to locate the litter tray, which must be a relief to them both.  Read more of George’s story here
