Meet Trumpet, a delightful young cat who came to us as a stray. Shortly after her arrival it became apparent that she was pregnant, so she has spent the last few weeks settling in with her fosterer, awaiting the birth.

Unfortunately, a few days ago Trumpet started to bleed heavily. She was rushed to the vets where an emergency Caesarean was performed to save her life.

The babies were born alive but were just too premature. Very sadly, all 5 kittens died shortly after delivery.

The good news is that Trumpet came through the surgery and is now recovering well at home.

As we all know, complex procedures such as these incur heavy costs and vet bills in general are our biggest expense! We are all volunteers at Cats Whiskers Rescue, and we rely totally on donations to take care of cats like Trumpet.
