We manufacture a wheelchair for Pepa, a paralyzed cat.

Pepa is a one-year-old kitten weighing 2 kilos. It was a baby that some neighbors were going to sacrifice and Carlos, its caretaker, found out and decided to take care of it.

Pepa, la gata paralítica

Pepa grew up surrounded by other animals and always answered Carlos’ call. One day he didn’t come and went out to look for her. He found her lying on the street bleeding. She thought a dog would have attacked her but the next day she took her to the vet, they did an X-ray and saw that she had a lead pellet right in her spine. He had been shot.

Pepa sufrió un disparo balín en la columna

Carlos and Pepa live together with another cat and 3 dogs in the mountains, in the province of Barcelona, and used to walk together. A few weeks earlier a neighbor hunter had threatened the animals for having invaded a few seconds an area of the forest without fencing of which he claimed to be the owner. The same neighbor who days before witnesses had heard beating his own dog before it disappeared.

Carlos did not hesitate to denounce the alleged aggressor to the Mossos d’Escuadra and look for some solution for Pepa, who in addition to rehabilitation will have a wheelchair that will help him move.

Thank you Carlos for helping. Thank you for reporting. It is the responsibility of all of us to make this world a place where life is respected.
