Arrival Story:
We used to put food out the front for our late cat, Suzie. Puff turned up outside our front door one day to eat the food. We realised the she was a stray. We then noticed that she was looking a bit podgy and thought she was pregnant so we took her to the vets, who thought she was pregnant too. Then she disappeared so we asked our neighbours to check their sheds and garages for her. Our neighbours opposite found Puff in an old cot in her shed with three kittens- two ginger and one black and white. We took Puff in and looked after her, our neighbours shared the kittens and took in the father of the kittens as well. But Puff wanted her kittens with us and kept bringing them across the road one by one in her mouth. We used to come home and find them all in our porch! We named her Puff the magic cat because she's very puffy and just appeared from nowhere. We don't know her age for sure, but we think she may be 6.

A couple of months ago we realised that Puff didn't seem herself. She was lying in her bed and I saw that one of her eyes was closed. Her eyes often get weepy, so I went to wipe it with a tissue. When I stood her up she fell sideways and her head was tilted to one side. I called the rest of my family and we realied that she could not move one side of her body: that was why her eye was closed, her neck was sideways and she couldn't stand up. We took her to an emergency vet who said that one side of her brain was not working properly, but there could be a variety of reasons why. He gave us a mixture of powder food to feed her with a syringe as she could'nt move her head down to eat or drink. He said that we should take her in again on Monday and see if she recovers on her own. By Monday she seemed a lot better, she could stand up and walk a few steps before she fell over again. We fed her water and cat milk during the day and night for two weeks. Her walking was getting better. Then suddenly she wasn't herself, it seemed asthough the lights were on but no one was home. She did not purr likes she usually does or respond to her name; she would just lay there staring at nothing. We took her to the vet again who said that the knidest thing to do would be to put her down. I was adamant that we hadn't given her enough time to reocver fully, and that we should give her another week. He gave Puff a shot of anibiotics, he said it would work only if it was an infection on the brain, and that this was our last hope. With a lot of syringe feeding, love and the antibotics Puff recovered and is herself again. She still tilts to the side a bit and her left eye is a bit more closed that the other one. We are all so glad that she recovered, and as my mum says: "we snatched her from the jaws of death."
