Shelly the Cat Saved a Life: Now Help Save Hers

Usually when you think of blood donors you don’t often think of the feline kind.  However, when a cat was in need Shelly the cat donated her blood to help save another cat’s life.   The cat that was saved was suffering from anaemia and it desperately needed a blood transfusion.

A call was then placed to the Orange RSPCA for a potential donor.  Shelly, who was at the shelter waiting to be adopted turned out to be a perfect match.   “It can be difficult to find a donor, that’s why it was really lovely of the RSPCA to let us use Shelly,” Dr Burnheim from the Orange Hospital said.

The tougher things about cats is that for blood transfusions the match has to be exact, unlike canines or humans which is why Shelly is so special.   Unfortunately with transfusions like this the life of a cat isn’t permanently safe.  Often times they will succumb to their diseases.  However, the extension of life is possible.

RSPCA animal attendant Kc Grealy said it would be great if she was adopted.  “Last week she donated blood and saved another kitty’s life, so it’d be great if someone could save hers,” she said.  So get out there and share this article and let’s get Shelly a new home!  Story via.
