Community saves cat
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.”
