A CAT found with a rotting tail has made a remarkable recovery and is now looking for a new home.
Manxi, named when her rotting tail had to be amputated, was found in a builder’s supplies yard in Flint.
She nearly died twice after infection from her tail spread and gave her blood poisoning.
“She was very, very poorly. We almost lost her twice,” said Sheila Stewart, of Capricorn Animal Rescue, who took in the cat . The vet said it was a miracle she was alive, the way she fought for her life was amazing.”
Mrs Stewart, who runs the charity in Padeswood, near Mold, said: “She had been found in a builder’s supplies yard, in Flint, with only half a tail and that was rotting with bits dropping off.
“We took her to the veterinary hospital where she had emergency surgery to amputate the rest of her tail before the blood poisoning spread further.
“Her life has been saved and although she only has a little stump of a tail, it does not affect her balance in any way.
“She has made a good recovery, has been sprayed and is now ready for homing.
“She is so loving and so sweet natured and she is only a young cat, perhaps about 12 to 18 months old.”
