‘Dustin’ the adventurous 2-year-old cat went missing for 4 days and unfortunately got far more than he bargained for on his trip. When ‘Dustin’ was found he had mutilated his leg in what was believed to have been a brutal rabbit trap. Darcey, the mother of two young kids, didn’t know what she was going to do after taking ‘Dustin’ to the Bellarine Vet Newcomb and being told he would need his leg amputated.
‘Dustin’s’ bestie is young daughter Sydney who is 4 and adores the cheeky cat. Mum Darcey knew without the surgery the cat would surely die and leave a collective hole in the entire family’s hearts. “Dustin is great for the children’s mental wellbeing and helps them understand love and compassion.” Reaching out to PMC through the vets meant we’re able to step in and assist the grateful family and donate our maximum which was enough help get this kitty back with his family.
‘Dustin’ is now adjusting to life with 3 legs and will hopefully not want to be so adventurous in the future.
