Charlie was first spotted by a postman lying in a front garden on the 15th April 2005, when the postman returned on the18th he found Charlie still in the same place and realized something was wrong. He told a member of Croydon Cats Protection (CPL) who luckily lives nearby who reported Charlie's plight.
Charlie was taken straight to the vets where he was found to have a badly broken back left leg and dislocated hip caused probably by an RTA. He spent three weeks at the vets, his leg had to have a pin fitted to stabilized the broken bone, the dislocation was left for a later date. We bought him home on the 9th May to be kept in a cage to try to keep him quiet so his leg might set, however, he is so full of life this proved to be easier said than done!
Three weeks later he returned to the vets and the pin was removed, the hip however proved more difficult to sort out and soon after an excision arthroplasty was carried out. This is where the head of the femur is removed which allows a false joint to form.

On the 27th July 2005 we adopted Charlie, so he is now a permanent member of our menagerie!
All his treatment was paid for by
the Croydon Branch of Cats Protection.
