Students Thank Local Vets for Saving Dora

Dora, one of our school cats, was unfortunately hit by a car over the weekend and consequently suffered a broken leg in three places. Due to the extent of her injuries, her leg has been amputated.

The vets have assured us that cats can live full and long lives with three legs, she just might be a little slower! Dora is being rehabilitated by Miss Harding and will have a few weeks of limited exercise before being able to freely move around again.

Our students and staff have been so grateful for the incredibly talented professionals at Penmellyn Vets who have helped Dora on her path to recovery. On Thursday afternoon, our Year 8 students baked Butterscotch Biscuits with many students opting to donate some or all of their bakes to the vets as a thank you gift. Our Animal Care students also created a heartfelt thank you card.

Dora was taken to the vets this morning (Friday) for a pre-planned check up where our BTEC Animal Care students presented the gifts (featured image).

Delphi has learnt a new trick, to ‘cuddle’, and thought it was a perfect opportunity to make her injured friend feel better this week.

We are pleased to share the news that Dora is recovering well thanks to the wonderful vets in our community. We wish Dora a speedy recovery.
