Cat owner thanks the community for helping to bring Fluffy home

THE OWNER of a cat which lost one of its legs after it was shot by a pellet gun has thanked the community for helping to bring Fluffy home.

Jennifer Phillips has spoken to the Observer following the horrific incident last Tuesday which resulted in the four-year-old having one of his legs amputated.

He is now recovering back at home, but Jennifer had to launch a fundraising page to raise the money needed to pay the £600 vets bill to bring Fluffy home.

It follows claims that JP Veterinary Services LTD, where Fluffy was being treated, would not let Jennifer take him home until the bill was paid upfront and in full, which Jennifer could not afford. She alleges the vets threatened to re-home Fluffy.




JP Veterinary Services have said they are unable to comment on the claims due to client confidentiality.

In just four days after launching the fundraising page Jennifer managed to raise the money needed to pay the vet’s bill and has thanked everyone who donated and for their help in bringing Fluffy home.


“In total people have helped raise £520 to bring fluffy home, which we are all so grateful for,” Jennifer said.

“The support has been from friends, family and complete strangers who have been sharing Fluffy’s story and also donating, which has been amazing!

“We can’t thank everyone enough.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is urged to call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 0601S of Tuesday, September 19.

Alternatively, information can be passed on anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
