Meet Merv

Mervi is a very lucky feline after being spotted by a caring passerbylaying on the path (inside the front grounds to community housing commission block).At first she thought he was dead but then on closer inspection she realised he wasbreathing. After contacted Collaroy Vet they told me they would treat Merv free of charge which was a really lovely thing to do. I called the RSPCA but they said they could not send someone out until Monday to pick him up (I felt Monday would havebeen too late as Merv's injury was bad and infection had already started). There wereflies and ants all over him. A door knock of the housing block failed to find an owner and he wasn't microchipped. When we went to approach Merv he was so happy to see us andstarted to purr. He loved having his head scratched and even with his terrible woundswas happy for me to pick him up. He seemed excited to be going for a car ride. We took him to Collaroy Vet and they cleaned the wound and gave Merv some food andfresh water

he was so happy!Merv will stay at Collaroy Vet for the next 7 days while he is recovering from his operation. After this time a permanent or foster home needs to be found for Merv.
