Poor Codi was found crawling on a pavement in March 2014 finding it difficult to breathe. Luckily for him, he was picked up by the Animal Accident Rescue Unit and taken straight to the vets.
It was discovered that as well as a bad head injury, he had a swollen mouth as a result of a large abcess. Thankfully he recovered well, although he has subsequently had to have all his teeth removed and has ongoing neurological and sight problems. This meant instead of being put up for adoption, he became a permanent foster cat.
The Animal Accident Rescue Unit has a lifelong commitment to the animals it rescues. This means cats that aren’t able to be rehomed due to medical conditions, are cared for by the Charity’s network of fosterers for the rest of their lives, with the Charity providing financial support.
When he first arrived at his fosterer’s house he was very feisty but once he realised he was safe, Codi calmed down and has turned into a very loving and affectionate boy. His fosterer now can’t imagine life without this 11-year-old fusspot.
“This cat is not available for adoption due to their health issues but you can donate to help Animal Accident Rescue Unit to cover the cost of vets bills, regular medication and food.
“The Charity has a life long commitment to the animals it rescues, which can be very costly especially for those with complex medical conditions. As we take in more cats with long-term health problems that prevent them being available for general adoption we have to rely on our network of caring permanent cat fosterers to give these cats the love and attention they deserve.
