BINIBECA FUR BALLS
3 weeks ago
She’s yet another cat from Binibeca who has had to have surgery in her ears to save her life.
Dixie turned up at one of our feeding places just 2 weeks ago.
Iris who leaves food there in the mornings had never seen her before.
She sent me a photo , thinking that it was an injury.
Sadly it is something that we see all too often in white cats.
Most often we can help the cats , removing ear or ears to different degrees depending on how far the cancer has spread.
I was there in half an hour but she had already left.
I went back the next day at the same time and she was there !
As you know you only have to feed at a cat once and it is usually back for more at the same time next day.
I caught her with a manual trap. She was very hungry and even though the gardeners were there working with machinery I still caught her.
Her face was such a mess. I didn’t want to stare as she was very nervous. But it looked as if either there was a lot if dried blood and gunge on her face or it had already spread.
Off to vet.
She was made comfortable and the next day had the entire ear removed. More than he has ever done in another cat.
She stayed with him for a few days with analgesics etc.
And now she is with me.
Soft as butter now she is not in pain.
She’s sharing a room with Sol but keeps to herself.
If other cats come into the room she doesn’t hiss or run away.
She has cancer on the end of the second ear and I time she will have an operation on that one also.
She will have a good life but could really do with being somewhere with less sunshine, or being an indoor cat.
She can be picked up and loves a cuddle.
This is the third cat this year whose life we have saved by removing ears. Sadly we were too late with the Persian, it had spread into her throat.
Can you help us to keep helping the strays and feral of Menorca?
Because they are so worth it.

Rescued from Es Castell , the village near to my house.
He was lurking around the post office in September last year.
He was in a terrible state. A non neutered Tom he had been fighting and was in a terrible state.
He also had cancer of the ears. They had to be removed.
We do this so often.
How much has to be taken off depends on how far the cancer had spread. , but it is frequently successful.
A month or so ago you might remember that I gathered up a white Persian from Binibeca with terrible ears.
At first inspection our vet was hopeful that he could save her, but it turned out that the cancer had spread far inside, down to her jugular. She had to be put to sleep.
At least she is not suffering any more.
This is a bad time for cats with cancers on their face for it frequently seems to go into remission in the winter months and then with May it all kicks off again.
Just this week I was called to Binibeca to catch a white cat that had just turned up at one of our feeding areas.
I caught her quite quickly. One ear was a real mess. It was the whole ear and possibly part of her face. But she looked so young.
Our vet was hopeful.
He realised that he would indeed have to take off the whole of the outer ear. This was done.
Once again I will not show you the photos. When her fur grows it won’t be so bad.
It really does give them a new lease of life.
Bini had part of one ear amputated last year and now looks quite rakish.
So back to Alfie.
Finally since yesterday he is staying out of the sun.
People have been amazing donating but we do an awful lot of work and feed over 300 cats every day over much of the Island.
Mind you having heard that it costs 1.5 million pounds a month to run Chester Zoo, what can I say. But when they are re open 90% of that money is in one from the zoo itself.
We rely on the kindness and generosity of people.
Have a look at out website.
No animal is ever put to sleep if it can have quality of life.
