Help Markus

 
Markus' scrotum and the tip of his penis were tied up with an elastic band in an attempt to neuter him.

He needed emergency surgery to fully remove both penis and scrotum to ease the excruciating pain he was in. Sadly his recovery will not be easy as he continues to struggle urinating and may need a follow-up surgery to help him.

Your support will help cover the first surgery and will give this curious, loving, cuddly two-and-a-half-year-old all he needs to make a full recovery.

How can I help, please get in touch with me. This makes me so sad-some people should not be allowed to have a pet.

Update!

Markus’ story made everyone who heard it squirm uncomfortably at the thought of the cruel act that caused him absolute agony. When he came in, he was (reasonably) angry and unapproachable, but following his very successful surgery (he is urinating without any issue!) he turned into the most loving cat ever.

Once he had recovered he was transferred down to Vancouver where he secured a space at the Catfé. Proving to be a rock star, it didn’t take long for someone to snatch up this big hunk of love and make him part of their family.

Now Markus will have a life filled with only happiness and love, and all thanks to animal-lovers like you.
