A home needed for little Fineas (disturbing content)

Warning: graphic images, do not scroll down if squeamish.

Jane and friends at Woodland Nook are trying to raise funds to help a little kitten called Fineas, who is currently in the care of Cats Pyjamas, a rescue centre in Crete, where he has just had to have both eyes removed, at great expense, due to an infection. He was found blind and staggering along the road – and would surely have died had a kind-hearted Greek family not found him and taken him to the vet.

He was too small and weak to undergo an operation immediately but was nursed back to health to enable the procedure to take place earlier this week. 

Jane says: “He is a beautiful little soul and I’ve personally met him. He’s very loving but frightened.”

Jane and friends have managed to raise enough money to bring him over to the UK for further rehabilitation and rehoming. 

Fineas is friendly and loving, and can cope with other cats, but not too many. While he will never be able to be an outdoor cat, he will be able to live a full and active life. Once they are settled and familiar with their environment, blind cats can find their way around easily and even learn to chase toys!
