Marmalade The Cat Gets A Second Chance

Sadly, staff at Margaret Green Animal Rescue are not unused to scenes of shocking neglect but when Marmalade arrived at the charity’s Church Knowle sanctuary, staff were appalled to see the obvious lack of care he had suffered.

When Marmalade was handed in as a stray, he was extremely emaciated and was covered from head to paw in dark dirt. He was also suffering from red and itchy skin which had left him bald in some places. The priority for Marmalade was to get him cleaned up as soon as possible.

Margaret Green veterinary nurse Liz Morgan said ‘the extent of the dirt covering Marmalade became apparent when I gave him a bath. The water turned almost black’. Liz added ‘after his bath, Marmalade started washing straight away – it must have been a huge relief for him’.

Now that Marmalade has been cleaned up, he is doing really well. He is eating well and with the right diet, care and a lot of love, staff at the sanctuary have high hopes for this little fighter. Liz said ‘now that Marmalade is on the road to recovery, we are focusing on finding him the perfect forever home. Marmalade is around thirteen now so he is looking for a lovely home to live out his twilight years’.
