A Tribute to Gordon

25/06/2010

Poor Gordon went to great lengths to find sanctuary at Romney House, as he travelled all the way from the Isle of Wight! He was knocked down by a car in a country lane & then about 5 more cars hit him as he lay injured in the road. Fortunately someone picked him up & a vet managed to stitch him back together again! His injuries meant that his bladder did not function for some time, so it had to be emptied manually. Needless to say he was 'wild' through fear & pain for some time. Thankfully after receiving Silvana's tender love & care, all he was left with was a hare lip & a wonky tail. Gordon roamed free & lived comfortably around the grounds of Romney House in the company of the other resident cats.

Gordon spent 6 full & loving years living contently at Romney House.

Effective feline-safety fencing was installed to keep the cats well away from the road. Despite having the barrier installed & re-installed, it failed to prevent a determined Gordon from finding his way over it & out to the front of the house.

It seems that poor Gorgon was simply destined to meet with the traffic, & sadly he was recently hit again & killed on the road beyond the grounds.

He was a very special cat with bags of character, who was much loved

Rest in peace Gordon
