A CAT charity has appealed for donations after being hit by huge vets bills for two rescued kittens.
Bolton and Bury Cat Rescue, which helps needy cats and kittens, spent more than £500 in the last two months helping two poorly cats.
The appeal comes after the charity had to pay for treatment for a four-month-old foster kitten after it was attacked by an unneutered cat in Radcliffe.
Kitten Tammy spent two days on a drip before being allowed home.
Another cat, Beau, who was rescued from the roof of a bus shelter also needed expensive treatment.
Chedia Hoolickin, chairman of the charity said: “Many other cats handed in also need veterinary treatment.”
Bolton and Bury Cat Rescue is a small volunteer led organisation that helps cats that have been abandoned, neglected or ill-treated.
It relies entirely on fundraising and donations.
As well as fostering cats and kittens, the charity regularly holds fundraisers, collects at supermarkets and runs stalls at local community events.
Ms Hoolickin said: “We particularly want to hear from anyone who can help with the fundraising side to enable the charity to continue its vital work.”
People who would like to donate can do so via the charity’s Just Giving page or by texting BBCR01 (amount of your choice) to 70070.
