An association finds an injured stray cat
“Bonhomme” is a well-known cat from the Ecole du Chat du Boulonnais association. Out on the streets for several years, he was recently found injured and taken to a vet … who made a very dark discovery.
From the top of his 6 years, Bonhomme is already a stray cat who has “a bottle” and who knows by heart the streets of Outreau in the north of France.
In this life of misery, many wandering felines unfortunately do not have the opportunity to reach this age, which is however not so high, compared to the life expectancy of around 15 years for a cat. interior.
Pampered as much as possible by his feeders, they had the bad surprise to see him arrive seriously injured in the leg.
Taken urgently to the vet
Bonhomme was taken to the vet on January 14 for urgent treatment, having a badly damaged paw.
Fall? Car accident ? What happened to this cat who had so far avoided the dangers of the street?
The vet took an X-ray to further examine the leg, which appeared to be fractured, and he made a sad discovery: someone shot Bonhomme with a rifle.
The leg was sharply fractured and a lead was lodged in his abdomen. He was in terrible pain.
Heavy and expensive veterinary care
Fortunately, Bonhomme was able to count on the Ecole du Chat du Boulonnais association, which took care of his care.
Unfortunately, the paw was too damaged and had started to gangrene, so the animal was amputated.
He has since found a generous temporary foster family and will not be able to return to the streets.
However, the association needs help to pay the 600 euros in veterinary fees, and has appealed for donations on Facebook.
Let us wish Bonhomme a good recovery, and find a permanent family who will make him forget this sad street life.
