Edna was rescued from the side of the road on 14 April 2023. It would appear that she hadn't been on the streets long, particularly as she was blind and her nails were so long, so most likely she got sick and her owners simply dumped her. She was extremely dehydrated.
The staff sat with her around the clock (as they do for all new rescues), willing her to live and giving everything they can to try and help them live. The same day Edna was rescued, poor
Waffles passed away, and Edna started to eat. She had refused all the food we gave her until we went out and bought her chicken - she devoured it!
Unfortunately, it was not enough, as a few days later, Edna had a seizure at 2am and had to be on oxygen in addition to the medication she was on to help her fight the lung infection and anaemic condition she was in. We were not going to give up on her as we believed she had a chance of recovery and we wanted her to experience love, play and devoted attention at least for a short time. She eventually passed away on 21 April 2023, but we hope she felt the love for the few short days she was with us.
