These two cats are the latest arrivals at Myerscough College’s veterinary nursing centre.

The two are the first animals being cared for as part of a drive to support local practices by taking in and rehoming strays that require rehabilitation and prolonged nursing support.

They were referred to Myerscough from County’s End Veterinary Hospital in Oldham.

Both arrivals are domestic shorthaired cats. Cupcake is a very friendly eight-month-old black and white female. She had been treated at the practice for a serious leg wound and has since recovered well.

Easta is an affectionate two-year-old brown tabby, brought in with injuries inside her mouth. She has been left with some partial facial paralysis, but this may resolve with time and does not seem to be causing her any problems.

Veterinary nursing HE lecturer Helen Rooney said: “The team is extremely happy to welcome our first cats into the cat ward as we all miss the hands-on nursing very much.

“Both cats have had a difficult few weeks and we hope they continue their recovery here and that we can find them both the loving homes they deserve.’’

The centre is now looking to provide care for other cats in a similar position, and can take in animals from practices across the north-west of England.
