Lumpy Larry Needs Urgent Medical Care

Lumpy Larry Needs Urgent Medical Care

Why we need your help

Gables Dogs & Cats Home were recently contacted for help by another organisation and asked if they would take in an unwanted, overweight cat who desperately needed medical care. Lumpy Larry, as he has affectionately been named, arrived at Gables with tightly matted fur all over his body and a large tumour on his face, which has been left untreated. 
Lumpy Larry is a friendly, affectionate cat and Gables are certain he will have no problem finding a new home once he is well enough. As well as needing to lose some weight, 9 year old Lumpy Larry is going to need a lot of medical treatment and TLC to get him back to peak condition. His fur was so tightly matted on arrival, he had to be shaved all over under anaesthetic, but he feels much more comfortable now. He will also be fully vaccinated, treated for fleas and worms, have a much needed dental and his tumour removed. 
Deputy Manager, Ruth Rickard said: “It is always so distressing to see an animal suffer from something that is so easily preventable and treatable. As soon as I heard about poor Lumpy Larry I just knew we could help him and he is such a sweet, friendly boy. Our vet even had trouble listening to his heart properly as he was purring so loudly on examination. He is going to be a very loving addition to a home once he has had all the treatment he needs.” 
It is estimated it will cost Gables an additional £600 for all of Lumpy Larry’s treatment and aftercare to ensure that he is well enough to go on to find his purrfect, forever home.

If Gables is lucky enough to raise more money than is needed it will go towards helping the other animals in our care.
