My name is Elly and I was a street cat. Some lovely furiends from Switzerland found me when they were on a neutering action (this is when they do something inside you to make sure you won’t have any babies that will land on the street like me). You have to know that an elderly lady called me hers but she never let me in the house, I had to live outside all my life. This was very hard. Living outside means be aware of all the danger and never know of how much food you get. Many of my furiends were ill and had bad injuries and some even died. Some I never saw again.
I was ill too. I hardly was able to breathe because of the polyp in my throat. The lady who was in charge of the neutering action saw me and she knew something was wrong and that I needed help or I would not survive. I don’t want to go into details, it’s embarrassing that they were able to catch me (they bait me with food!) and then I suddenly woke up again feeling unwell, dizzy and very tired. People were there and my tummy hurt. I heard someone say I will never be able to have babies now. They also cut me a little peace off my ear. Apparently this is a sign for animal furiends to recognise and they would not catch me again. Well, anyway. The nice lady hold me often in her arms, she was very nice to me. She said she will take care of my bad breathing and that she will find me a forever home where I get lots of yummie food and love and will be pampered. She brought me to a foster home where I stayed a few weeks. Then someone picked me up and drove me Switzerland. I didn’t like the journey. It was very exhausting and I was scared because I didn’t really know what would happen to me.
In Switzerland I came to an animal hospital. They all were very nice to me. I am not used to furiends making a fuss. It was kinda nice though.
I had the operation yesterday. Now my throat is sore. They took the huge polyp out and it has to heal now. Someone said I lost a lot of blood and the operation was very difficult. Also they said that I probably would have died withing a couple of months if I did not have had the OPs. I know soon someone called Ally will pick me up. She will be my new human furiend and she must be a nice person, so I heard. She will take care of me and love me. I already love her. I hope she will like me. I don’t wanna go back to the place I come from. I hope she will love me as much as she loves the other cats that already live in her home.
I hope I will have a very long and happy life with Ally <3
Can't wait until Caturday to meet her for the first time!
