Nibbles the Lower Quarry Centre tabby cat was accidentally injured by a car last Friday. After a five day search Nibbles was found and is in excellent care at the Umgeni Veterinary Clinic in Quarry Road, Hilton under Dr Lee Pachonick.
Nibbles had a broken jaw and damaged mouth, scratches on her nose and was in lots of pain. Dr Lee Pachonick kindly committed to take care of her at cost. However her medications and surgeries are expected to reach over R4000.00.
On behalf of Nibbles The Lower Quarry Centre is appealing to all animal lovers and Friends of Nibbles to please donate a little to her bill. Any amounts will be most welcome.
As at Saturday, 10th September 2011, Nibbles has proven herself a strong girl. Her feeding tube has been removed along with her protective collar and she has begun to groom herself a little. She has taken tiny laps of her liquid food and surprisingly this usually wary feral cat has been tamed and transformed into a very responsive and loving feline, she loves the scratches and tickles from encouraging staff and visitors at the clinic.
So far around R700.00 has been raised to cover the costs of healing Nibbles. Everyone who loves Nibbles is grateful but the amount is still a way off the total needed, so come on cat lovers, pop into The Lower Quarry or Umgeni Veterinary Clinic and help Nibbles along the path to a full recovery.
Collection bottles can be found at Debbie Street Physiotherapy, Curves, Scissor Hands, Lindsay's, The Quarry Health & Fitness Club, Ian Gordon Property Valuers cc, The Hilton Bakery, The SPCA Shop, Thimbles & Threads, Howick Travel and Cannon & Cannon alternatively donations can be given directly to The Umgeni Veterinary Clinic itself.
