Saving Sol

Sponsor our little ray of sunshine

Found by Es Castell local police after being hit by a car on the main road. He was so badly injured the policemen couldn’t bear to look at him. The Police knocked on Janice’s door at 7:30 am to ask for her help. They surrounded him with road cones and Janice picked him up and took him to the vets.

It was an emergency vet visit and the odds were not looking good as he had severe head injuries. One eye had to be removed and the other was stitched up to heal, and he underwent an operation to repair his palette that had been split in two. It took two months of hospitalisation. The Vet and his nurse named him Sol because they said ‘he is like a little ray of sunshine’. And this is true if you are lucky enough to meet this special fella, you can see he is so happy to be alive.

Sol is now living at home with Janice slowly recovering with  TLC and the help of very expensive recovery food. He eats a lot (2 tins a day).

You can help in the efforts of saving Sol by helping us to raise £1,287 to cover the vet bills and special recovery food.

Thank you for giving me a chance. Your donation will help pay for my enormous vet bill and provide me with that delicious recovery food that is making me healthy and strong. I hope you can come and visit me sometime soon at Janice’s cat cafe. Looking forward to your strokes,
Love Sol

Sol continues to make progress. 

I managed to carry him upstairs to my sitting room. 
He panics when picked up but I managed to hold him as I hold Lulu, my other blind cat. 

That is I clutch her against my torso with her torso close to mine and with hands firmly holding her, head on my shoulder. 

He then sat on the sofa next to me for quite some time without fidgeting. 

Thus is probably his most photogenic side, bless, for his poor battered face hasn’t receovered yet from his road accident. 

His fur is beginning to grow. That will help 

Another milestone yesterday. 
I soaked some kitten biscuits in water until very soft and then stirred some into his Recovery food. 
He ate nearly all of them. 
I think he has a bit of a problem picking up solid food. After all his upper pallet was split in two after his ccident. 

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our Saving Sol funding. You have been wonderful.

Yesterday Sol ate from my fingers after two syringes of food.

Today for the first time he has eaten all on his own from a plate.
Can’t believe how quickly he is changing after only feeding from a syringe for 2 months.

Ayer Sol comió de mis dedos después de dos jeringas de Recovery.
Hoy ha comido solo. No puedo creer como ha cambiado en un par de días.

Cada día va mejor.

I wish that I had saved the link. I saw on one of those Facebook ads, just a few days ago, a harness for cats. 
But it was quite big, long and fastened in the top with Velcro. 
It was made of cloth and somehow looked padded. 
Anyone see it/ can find it?  
From memory it might have been good for Sol, to take him for a walk in the garden.

Ooooooo. If you find a good one here in Spain, let me know! Phoebe has a little chest harness, but it’s only... eh. I got it at Menorca Campo and suffices, but I’d love one that hugs her with a bit more comfort.

They do all sorts of different ones on Amazon xx

Janice, I think the one you are after is on EBay. x

There is a selection on Amazon uk so maybe there are some on Amazon.es

Will check on Archers Cats, there was a post about harnesses x

I've sent you a link to one that I had saved on messenger, maybe the same?

Life is a learning curve , for both Sol and myself.
He’s been with me two days now and he’s getting used to both me and his new quarters.

After a rocky start we’ve got the knack of him feeding.
I can’t manage the huge syringes , just too stiff for my hands so I’m using the biggest one that I can use.

He’s now tilting his head for me, sometimes resting it on my hand.

He loves his food. Another one surviving in convalescence food.

He’s now walking beside me like a dog, resting his head on my leg and staying close to me.

When Kelsang Samsang comes round I’ll ask her to do a video of us.

To donate towards Sol’s expenses please go to our website.

That made me shed a few tears, but with happiness that he is getting the love he deserves. He definitely deserves a few people to give a small donation to help towards the vet’s bill. ❤️

Bless his little heart. Looks like he’s had such a hard life. How lovely that he can live comfortably now 😀

How is it that cats who look so poorly can also look beautiful and catch at your heart. When one of ours had pancreatitis and I had to syringe feed her, she used to know when it was feeding time and jump on the bed and wait for me to come xx

OMG the poor little soul is so very thin! So happy that he found you Janice. He is one lucky little kitty.

He’s skeletal. Thank goodness you have found him

Lovely looking cat. I have a soft spot for gingers

Poor him, he looks such a poorly cat 😰😰

Janice Bockling can I do Bank transfer into your UK bank account? It would be quicker than waiting for a cheque to clear. xx

Gwennie Nunn you’re so kind. Thank you from both of us. Xx

What a lovely boy Janice. xx

A lovely purr x

All the love in the XX 💞

Oh Janice what a sweetheart he is xxx

Amazing xxx

What a sweetheart 😻

xx

Lesions in feeding Sol.
Let’s hope that he likes me feeding him.
And that one day he will eat alone.
3 times a day!
Apparently when he’s had enough of if the speed is incorrect he raises a paw.

Lovely to see his engagement and communication with the vets.

Poor soul, I hope you can help him xx

Poor animal! I hope he gets better soon, Janice your an amazing person for what you do! Dedication 100 percent! Also a big thankyou to Juan Carlos great vetinarian

Maybe he'd feel more comfortable on a blanket?

I’m assuming the vet gave you all the tips like warming the food slightly

Awwww bless him - fingers crossed Xx

Great dedication Janice 😻😻

Why is he having to be syringe fed Janice? X

Bless him
