Hugo’s Story

My name is Hugo. I am an 8 year old black male cat. I was rescued by Cats’ Aid when they received a call from a kind lady reporting that I was found badly injured in her back garden. When the Cats’ Aid rescuer arrived to fetch me they discovered I had a severely injured back leg. The bone was exposed and was in urgent need of veterinary help. I was rushed to the vets but unfortunately they could not save the leg and it needed to be amputated. As you can imagine, this was a very traumatic experience and I was very frightened because it was a huge operation. Last year I developed bladder stones and now have been put on a special diet of urinary food. I do not like the food because I prefer my pals food and try sneak a nibble. But my cattery foster mammy waits patiently till I eat it as it will help stop the stones reoccurring and causing me pain in the future.

I have now been with Cats’ Aid for 3 years and the cattery is my home. I have a safe place to rest and have some great cat friends. My best friend is Bernie as she snuggles with me and gives me loads of head butts and kisses. I now like getting brushed and petted and I am nearly ready to try a foster home to get me ready my own forever home eventually.

By sponsoring me you will greatly contribute towards my life in the Cats Aid cattery in terms of food, medications, litter and worming. It will also mean that my Cattery Mam can buy me things to enrich my life such as toys, new litter trays, scratching posts and new bedding. Plus the lovely people at Cats Aid will provide you with a certificate.

Lots of love Hugo xx
