London’s ginger-and-white cat Jack is back on his paws but help is still needed


A local cat charity is desperately appealing to raise £4,000 to cover the costs of essential veterinary treatment for a cat that needed a double dose of urgent medical care.

Ginger-and-white cat Jack was rushed to the vets last December by staff at Cats Protection’s North London Adoption Centre after they noticed blood in his urine.

Jack had a urinary tract infection, causing a blockage in his bladder, so treatment was started immediately to ease his discomfort. After a short stay at the vets, Jack was back in the care of Cats Protection.

However, just days after, Jack was rushed back to the vets as his bladder was blocked for the second time.

Due to the urgency of Jack’s condition, he needed out-of-hours consultations, emergency boarding, multiple sets of blood tests, medical imaging, intravenous fluids and ongoing recovery treatment, costing just over £4,000.

Now on the road to recovery at Cats Protection’s Mitcham Homing Centre, Jack is looking for a loving home to call his own with a family who will shower him with affection.

Any funds raised beyond the target will be used to help other cats and kittens in the care of Cats Protection’s North London and Mitcham Adoption Centres.
