Stray cats face a high incidence of communicable diseases, malnutrition, and injuries from being hit by vehicles or attacked by dogs and other cats.
The Feline Foundation treats severe cases in the Versova area that require immediate immediate medical attention.
Our trauma patients often require several weeks of treatment and supportive care. Our focus is on helping the cat recover to the best state of health possible and preparing the cat to be released back into its home territory. We also sterilize and vaccinate the cats before their release.
Treating upto a hundred of trauma cases each year can incur high costs, and we wouldn’t be able to do it without the support from our incredible donors who fund life-saving surgeries, medications and equipment.
Mangesh was accidentally run over by a scooter as a young kitten and found by the Lassoon Live team. He initially had intermittent seizures followed by a tough recovery. He soon pulled through and turned into a playful kitten. He was actually adopted by one of the people that found him and even has a sister, Siddhesh!
The Ones Who Passed
While we do our best to save every cat that comes into our hands, it isn’t always possible. Some cats come to us in such bad shape that they do not make it through to the end despite our efforts.
