Nine Eight lives left for Flearoy after 50ft fall!
CAT TUMBLES OUT OF APARTMENT WINDOW ON FIFTH FLOOR AND SURVIVES
MEET Flearoy, the cat that survived a 50ft fall from a block of flats in Wythenshawe.
The one-year-old cheated death after falling from the window of an apartment on the fifth floor.
Feline Flearoy was seriously hurt. His front left leg was badly broken and the roof of his mouth was fractured.
Owner Emma Rowe, 31, rushed him to the vets. Flearoy’s injuries were so severe, he faced being put down. But after charity PDSA stepped in, he is on the road to recovery.
Emma, who is self-employed, was left devastated after being unable to afford Flearoy’s treatment.
Speaking of her pet’s fall, she said he was startled by a loud noise.
Flearoy ran out of the room, somehow squeezing himself through a tiny gap in the window and plummeting to the ground.
“The window hardly opens,” Emma said. “I never thought he’d be able to jump out. Normally, he just sits happily by the window but after he was startled he vanished.
“We rushed downstairs to see if we could find him, and discovered him curled up in a corner not far from our block.”
She said that Flearoy was covered in blood, and was unable to move.
“He’s a major part of the family so it was awful to see him in this much pain – it was devastating,” Emma added.
“I rushed him to the nearest vets where they did all they could to stabilise him.
“They feared his injuries were so severe that they’d have to put him to sleep, and there was absolutely no way I’d be able to afford Flearoy’s treatment.” A heartbroken Emma then found out about pet charity PDSA.
She made a call and discovered she was eligible for support, and Flearoy was referred to the charity’s Manchester PDSA Pet Hospital.
The beloved pet is recovering well from his operation.
Emma added: “I’m incredibly grateful to the charity and all of the staff at the Manchester PDSA. Without them I would have had no choice but to put my gorgeous Flearoy to sleep. I couldn’t have afforded the treatment. Borrowing more money just wasn’t an option.
“I’ve donated as much as I can to say thank you and encourage other animal lovers to do the same.
“The work they do is amazing. I can’t thank them enough.”
