Abandoned one-eyed cat rescued by Mayhew on look-out for new home

A one-eyed cat is on the look-out for a new home after its owner moved from where they were living and left him behind.
Ten-year-old Sammy arrived at Mayhew, in Trenmar Gardens, Kensal Green, after neighbours contacted the charity telling them a cat with badly infected eyes had been abandoned by its owner.
Sammy was quickly seen to by Mayhew’s experienced Vet Team at their on-site Community Vet Clinic.
They saw that he had an infection in the right eye and his left eye ball had keratitis, an inflammation of the cornea, and they had little choice but to remove the whole eye.
The right eye was treated with antibiotic eye drops and the infection was fully resolved, preventing long lasting problems.

Mayhew’s Vet, Dr Emily Richardson, said “We wish whoever had left Sammy behind had called us first. At Mayhew we are dedicated to helping people in crisis situations. We do not judge and we are here to assist and advise on the best course of action for the animal, no matter what the problem is.”
A one-eyed cat can still go on to have a perfectly normal life once they get the treatment they need.”
