Good news about the fate of poor Emily, a kitten saved from certain death in the middle of a busy road.

Cat lover Cecile Watson has passed her home visit from the RSPCA and has been allowed to take Emily home and take care of her.  Emily is still poorly and is having another operation on Tuesday but signs are looking good and hopefully she will be well enough to leave the care of the vets on 15 May.

Cecile thanked myself and the Blog. She said ‘It’s because of you I knew about her. I contributed to RSPCA for her when you posted her on Facebook and told others about her too. I lost my cat a few weeks ago and miss having someone to tell me what to do so I thought of Emily.’ Cecile is very looking forward to having Emily home with her.

Emily was taken into the Preston RSPCA by a very kind lady who had done her very best to help her. She was only a few weeks old when she was found her in the middle of the road. It was pouring down with rain and she was barely alive.

She was seen by a vet who had to remove one of her eyes after an infection had set in. The RSPCA Preston & District branch battled to save her remaining eye and asked for much needed funds to give he poor young baby a chance.


The Preston RSPCA didn’t take the cheaper option to put Emily down as their vet thought it would be worth trying to save her eyesight and that she deserved another chance no matter what it costs.

The Preston RSPCA would like to say a huge thanks to Debbie-Anne Pitcher and her husband for saving the life of Emily.
