Cat ‘miracle’ hit by bus

“She showed that she was a real fighter.”

4 year old Trudie suffered major head injuries when she was hit by a bus in Luton Bedfordshire running away before she could be treated.

Staff and volunteers at the RSPCA’s Southridge Animal Centre in Hertfordshire managed to track her down 16 days after her accident and she was rushed to a local vet for treatment to wire her jaw together and remove her damaged eye.

Southridge deputy manager, said: “It’s a miracle that she’d survived with those horrific injuries, especially as they’d left her unable to eat.

After her surgery she was fed via a tube for the first week and then, when she came to our cattery, we slowly weaned her back onto normal food and helped her start walking again.

After everything we’d been through, we knew we needed to find her the most amazing home.

Cat makes ‘miracle’ recovery as she finds new home after being hit by bus.

Dennis Hooper and his partner Shirley Carter, from South Mimms, Hertfordshire, decided to take in the cat, where she is settling in well.

“We’re big animal-lovers, particularly cats, and I knew I’d choose an animal who had been through the worst time so I could show them a lovely life,” he said.

“She showed that she was a real fighter.”
