Barney: Blind, has been thrown out of a fifth floor window!!



Barney arrived to our hospital this morning inside a carton box.

They said it was an emergency, there had been a fight home, and during the discussions, the boyfriend grabbed the him by the tail and threw him out of the window of their fifth floor apartment.

Barney was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit… a minute later, the person that brought him left the hospital, jumped on her car and disappeared.

That´s how much those people loved their blind cat… they threw him out of the window and then abandoned him. I really have no words.



As beautiful as Barney looks, he is in a terrible state.. broken ribs, a perforated lung and two broken legs… A complete disaster.

There is no conservative treatment to follow, during the next 24 hours he will be stabilised and we will try to resolve the bleeding in his lungs, but we need to operate his fractures as soon as possible otherwise he may never walk again…



Barney is blind. What kind of people throws a blind cat out of the window? How is that even possible? Well.. it is… we have the results of such brutality with us right now…

We are going to operate Barney tomorrow, in 48 hours the latest. His condition is just terrible… PLEASE HELP US SAVE HIS LIFE…


After his surgery and recovery Barney is going to need an amazing home where he can have the dream life.
Please write to me on v.larkhill@gmail.com if you believe you are that family.
