Our little chipmunks have been little superstars over the past few weeks. With our two tabbies Theodore (left) and Simon (middle) needing surgery it was crucial they gained weight whilst receiving daily eye treatment. All 3 are still quite feisty so it’s a testament to Angela that she’s able to administer treatment in such circumstances. But Angela is making progress securing some purrs out of Theodore and Simon… so just Alvin (right) to convince
We’d like to introduce you to Alvin (top left), Simon (bottom left) and Theodore (right). These three kittens were discovered in Stantonbury along with their mother. Sadly we’ve been unable to capture mum as yet, we fear she’s gone to ground probably already pregnant with her next litter.
These little ones are approximately 11 weeks of age and having been safely trapped, its clear they’ve had no physical contact from humans and both Simon and Alvin are suffering from ulcers in their eyes. All three are a little hissy but thankfully Angela can handle Simon and Alvin sufficiently to administer their eye treatment. We are hopeful that Simon won’t lose his eye that is ulcerated but Alvin will require enucleation, an operation to remove the badly ulcerated eye. We are hopeful that with regular lubrication we can safe his other eye.
