Archie came into CP care in July 2018 underweight, suffering from anaemia and had a sore and infected mouth. It was clear that Archie had serious health problems as his mouth and chin area were permanently wet. Though already neutered Archie’s health problems were too extensive and expensive for his owners to cover. The first treatment to dispense with the fleas immediately made this brave boy feel better, revealing his affectionate nature and playful side. Unfortunately his teeth were too damaged to be saved and Archie’s dental surgery took 3 hours leaving him with only two teeth. Archie’s history and his personality made him a favourite with all the staff at the vets.
It was very emotional seeing this downtrodden cat change into a confident, healthy and loving boy. He needed to be an only pet in a quiet home where he could enjoy lots of affection and this suited new owner Jillian down to the ground. Within a few hours of arriving in his new home in September, Jillian sent this photo of a relaxed Archie looking very much at home. She said that Archie was settling well, had eaten and was purring away, although he wasn’t so sure of the water fountain!
