Mani the Persian; rescued from a miserable situation...
We're once again left baffled at how some people have been so callous about caring for their pets during this lockdown. Yesterday we recieved a call from Bibwewadi tipping us off about a Persian cat being kept in terrible condition. The adult male cat was kept in a cage with no litter or bedding which had not been cleaned for days. Old food had grown mouldy around him. A few neighbours had been feeding him occassionally but there was no sign of the owners for a long time. We rescued the cat and brought it to the RESQ Centre. The neighbours have informed us that his name is Mani.
This poor boy has been through excruciating heat and the untimely heavy rains with no provision of shelter. He cannot bear the summer heat; he open-mouthedly pants all the time. The fur on his back and hind quarters is completely matted. He has an infection in his left ear and his fur is shedding profusely as well. And yet he is docile and allows us to handle him easily. He is still very stressed with the heat and new environment and he hasn't eaten any food but our vets are supervising him and are confident that he will soon settle down.
RESQ is looking into this matter of negligence and abandonment. Mani is safe and sound and being well looked after at the RESQ Centre while we try to pursue this case through the proper legal channels. Please support us and help us care for this lovely cat by clicking on the Donate button below.
