Sue Mil­lichap was dis­traught after an ac­ci­dent left her cat Inky with a frac­tured tail and pelvis. The trainee teacher, who lives on Manor Road, Leven­shulme, had only re­cently got Inky, and her other cat Smudge, hadn’t got round to ting pet in­surance.

She was told Inky would be left per­ma­nently dis­abled if he didn’t un­dergo surgery to pin his pelvis back to­gether, but couldn’t af­ford to pay for the £500 op­er­a­tion.

Sue was en­cour­aged to set up a fundrais­ing page after writ­ing about Inky on the Leven­shulme Cats Face­book page - and was as­ton­ished when peo­ple she didn’t know started mak­ing do­na­tions.

More than £500 was raised less than 24 hours after the page was first launched, and the to­tal now stands at more than £750.

Now Sue wants to thank ev­ery­one who do­nated money to help Inky, who is on the road to re­cov­ery.

Sue said: “I re­ceived pledges from lovely mem­bers of the Leven­shulme Cats Face­book page, none of whom I know per­son­ally.

“I de­clined their kind of­fers as I was em­bar­rassed and proud, but they en­cour­aged me to set up the page to help save Inky.

“Their gen­eros­ity has blown me away and they were also very sup­port­ive when the ac­ci­dent hap­pened, of­fer­ing ad­vice and lend­ing me the things I need to nurse him bet­ter.“

The support Inky and I have re­ceived is just as­tound­ing

“I just want to high­light the good­will and gen­eros­ity of the peo­ple of Leven­shulme and say thank you.”
