Feral Whisper Fund


A couple of months ago we found a cat hanging around the sanctuary.

She would follow us as we could see the glint of her eyes in the darkness. We became very fond of her and when we found her going through our rubbish bags we knew that she needed help.

We started to feed her and she made home in the barns where the straw bedding is kept.

After getting cats protection involved we found out that if she were to be FIV positive they would put her to sleep..

On the day she was due to be caught and taken to vets my gut instinct said no and i put a call out online for advice as we know very little about FIV

Then one day she looked very ill and we knew that we had to get her to the vets for treatment, spaying and blood tests.

She was so poorly that the spaying was no an option, but she was put on antibiotics and had Xrays and blood tests

When we brought her home, she disappeared and my fear was she was to afraid and had done a runner because of the vet visit and human handling.

Then one night i sat in her barn and i heard a whisper ~ i looked round and there she was looking at me, happy tears to see her, she had stole my heart

“whisper” came to calf as she needed help and we could not turn our back on her

The antibiotics started to work and a week later she was looking much better.

I was SOOOO pleased, then i got the call with the blood results

Whisper is FIV positive

We are going to try our best to keep her but its not going to be easy as there are 8 cats on the farm, unless the chance of a perfect home comes up for her, at the end of the day its what would be best for whisper, she is feral but not wild, she lets me get close to her and seems to love company, ideally she needs to be an only cat but we will try our best to manage the situation possibly by keeping her in the barn for now, as she does not roam at all other than to go to toilet, of which we will try and litter train

Of course vet care does not come cheap and our first bill was 274.00 of which we got help with ~ thank you
The next visit for spaying will be in same region as we will need to look at ways to worm her and to de flea, along with lifetime care to keep her well

We are strained as it is and really did not need this….BUT whisper is the priority here and what ever it takes we will do….

Please help if you can…

Any donations will be kept for the Whisper fund and care
