View Full Version : Urgent!! Foster home needed for Tinker to have operation

11th July 2011, 09:17 PM
Some of you may have read Tinker's thread here: viewtopic.php?f=253&t=22525 (http://www.forum.animallifelineuk.org/viewtopic.php?f=253&t=22525)

I have been fostering him for Chester Cat Care while he's undergone tests to find out what's going on with the little guy. To cut a long story short, he needs an operation in the next day or two max to amputate his leg to save his life. He has a fibrosarcoma on his leg. It looks like it hasn't yet reached his lymph nodes. As soon as it gets that far it is game over for this little chappie. :'(

Unfortunately he cannot have this op down here. He needs to go to Wrexham Veterinary Care urgently for this treatment, so we are desperately looking for someone who may be able to offer a calm, quiet foster home for him nearby while he recovers from this op. I cannot stress enough that this is a race against time for Tinker and if he doesn't have this operation the only thing we can do is to give him palliative care as this cancer takes over.

PLEASE, even if you cannot help do pass this on to friends, family, colleagues... anyone who may be able to find us somewhere for Tinker.

Thank you Ally. :ghug: It really needs to be somewhere near to the vet though to get to and from his appointments. :( According to Google maps it's about 50 mins which is probably a tad too far :why: : http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr=Nor ... ra=ls&z=11 (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr=Northwich&daddr=LL13+8DS&hl=en&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=20.824402,67.631836&geocode=FTaqLAMdtZPZ_ylVW8XFhlV6SDGiIKaUj8Kycw%3BF fdgKQMdBmjS_ym1sWQAGcd6SDE3q5qObODMSg&mra=ls&z=11)
