Team Y is back in the animal rescue business after stumbling across a very sick seven-week-old kitten at the weekend.
Now known as Nicholas (it is Christmas, after all!), the kitten was abandoned by his mum near Seeb beach.
Suffering from cat flu, a severe eye infection and cartilage damage to his ear, Nicholas is currently being treated at Al Qurum Veterinary Clinic.
Nicholas is on the mend, but the vet says he could be left blind in his eye – or it may need to be removed completely – as the damage to his cornea is extensive, while his ear will always be droopy.
“We are looking for help to fund Nicholas’s treatment as he could have a long road ahead to recovery,” says Kate Ginn, Y’s deputy editor.
“We’d then like to find him a loving, forever home that he deserves. Nick is already a real character and would make a lovely family pet. He is a friendly chap and loves to be stroked and cuddled.”
If you want to help Nick, you can make a donation for his treatment at www.gofundme.com/helpsaintnick
