Elderly cat seeking forever home after surgery to remove eye and ear

A cat who had surgery to remove her eye and ear after she was abandoned is looking for a new home to live out her twilight years.

The RSPCA has issued an appeal to help find a home for 19-year-old Suki – who is 92 in cat years.

She arrived at the RSPCA’s Harmsworth Animal Hospital in April with a terrible ear wound.

The pet was taken into a foster home in north London before undergoing major surgery earlier this month, which involved removing one of her ears and one eye.

Staff had traced her owners as she was microchipped, but they said Suki had moved out two years earlier and had been mainly living outside, being fed by neighbours.

As they didn’t want her back, the two organisations are trying desperately to place sweet Suki in a purr-fect home.

Georgina Holding, from RSPCA Friern Barnet Adoption Centre – who organised Suki’s transfer to the foster home – said: ‘When Suki was brought into us she had an awful ear wound and vets had to remove her ear canal and outer ear.

‘Due to complications during the operation, vets also had to remove one of her eyes when they found an ulcer.

‘Suki’s health check has been good and all of her test results have come back as normal so, despite her age, she is in good general health. She is sometimes stiff and struggles to walk and needs help to keep her face clean.

‘She’s a lovely, sweet cat who loves to be stroked and will purr when she’s getting attention.

‘We’d love to find her a relaxing, loving home where she can live out her days – however many she has left – in comfort.’

The pet doesn’t like to be in the car so staff are hoping to find a local home to minimise travel time and avoid her becoming too stressed.

The RSPCA are seeking an adult-only home ideally without other pets.
