Mayhew Vets help transform life of cat with missing tail

16 December, 2019

When Mayhew Animal Welfare Officer Libby Cannon went out to Trap, Neuter and Return feral and semi-feral cats living in a local North London colony, she was shocked to discover one young Tortie had a missing tail.

Although the wound did not appear to be fresh, there was old hair stuck to it, and the skin surrounding the stump looked dirty, dark and sore – we were concerned it could be necrotic.

Libby brought Mimi straight into Mayhew’s community vet clinic, where she was assessed by our vet team.

To find out more about Mimi’s missing tail, subsequent surgery and eventual happy ending, please see the attached press release – we also have more photos available on request!

Please do share this story to help raise awareness of the life-changing – and life-saving – work our Vets do, on owned, abandoned, stray and feral cats in our local community.
