Martha arrived at the Cats Protection's National Cat Centre in June 2007, approximately 12 years old with severe dental disease, ulcerated tongue, an airgun pellet in her throat and completely deaf!
The pellet was removed as were all her teeth apart from one canine. She had intensive antibiotic treatment over the next few weeks and her mouth improved enormously.
Because of her age a complete blood profile was carried out before anaesthetising her and it was found that her kidney function was not very good, the drug Fortekor was prescribed.
In October 2007 she was homed to a family who cared for her till December 2009 when they found she was finding it difficult coping with the rough and tumble of family life and would be better off in a quieter environment.
On the 30th December 2009 Martha came to live with us to be fostered however she settled in so well that in February 2010 we adopted her so she began living with us permanently. Martha became quite a presence in our house with her strong personality and very loud meow, as she was deaf. She loved sitting on laps and would head for anybody as soon as they sat down!
In February 2011 she went for a routine blood test to check on her kidneys but the results showed up some more problems which an ultrasound scan showed to be liver cancer. She continued on with no change in behaviour until 15th April 2011 when she became very ill and was taken to the vets and had to be put to sleep the following day.
What a little Character, we will never forget her!

All the treatment Martha received was paid for by the Croydon Branch of Cats Protection (CPL).
