Single Mum Cheree contacted PMC via our new application form at  She explained that she is a carer for her 6yr old daughter Indi who has autism.  Indi has had some bad experiences outside her home and is too afraid to leave the house, let alone go to school and therefore, Cheree cannot work.  Their 2yo cat Mudd and Arya are their assistance pets – keeping this little family connected and calm through their love.

Cheree explained that Mudd had injured his tail and then “my daughter tried to fix it more and in the process she has broken his tail and put Mudd into horrendous pain”.  He needed urgent surgery to amputate his tail but on a single parent / carer pension Cheree was simply unable to afford the cost.

“The situation is dire. I need to get Mudd’s tail amputated.  I am heart broken over this whole ordeal. I hope & pray that someone is able to help.” Said Cheree.

Prahran Vet Clinic to the rescue.  After discounting and capping their fees to $550 Pet Medical Crisis assistance enabled Mudd to go to surgery – leaving Mum Cheree debt free and very relieved.  

“Your help is insurmountable.    Omg thank you so much!!!  Your kindness and great work is so appreciated and I will forever be in debt to your amazing charity.  No words can express how thankful I am for your tenacity – you have been instrumental in the healing process for our family; we are forever grateful.”

Prahran vet then went over and above and are boarding Mudd free of charge for 7 days so that he can heal without the curiosity of Indi, or his feline lover Arya.

Rest and heal sweetheart… Love from all your friends at PMC xxxxooooxxxx
