Thank you dear furiends from Dexter and me!

Furiends, I have missed you all. The last few months have been extremely busy. My mum has been poorly, like I told you before, and since she’s my chief typist I gave her some time off. She wrote about it here for those of you who are wondering what’s been going on. She’s now getting the proper treatment and we all hope she will feel better soon. Last Wednesday – the 18th of July, my humans got married. It was the best day of their lives and I can’t wait to tell you all about it ASAP. We also have huge news and I purrsonally have a big dilemma…however, unfortunately all of that has to wait for now.

Those of you who also follow me on social media may have seen that my cousin Dexter has been the victim of a barbaric and incomprehensible act of violence. Furiends, I know you are all animal lovers and I would never want to upset you, but I’m so sorry… I think inadvertently I’m about to do just that.

Mum’s mum and dad have four dogs, four tortoises, tropical fish and four cats… they all live in a beautiful old farm in lovely Cornwall, UK – where my mum comes from. I have always thought of them as cousins since most of them are actually younger than me.

On Tuesday my cousin Dexter found a strength and courage that I never knew any cat could possess when he dragged himself home after a living nightmare.

Our darling Dexter dragged himself home after a monster broke his jaw, forced a gun into his mouth and shot him.

He has a hole through the roof of his palette, a severed tongue and an exit wound. It’s a miracle that he’s still alive.

The excellent veterinary team that are now caring for Dexter have pulled out shrapnel from his head, operated on him and are still working tirelessly to save his life.

Dexter has already proved he’s a fighter by getting himself home and now we want to be able to give him the best chance at recovery by providing him with the necessary treatment, raising awareness of this act of cruelty and hopefully getting him justice.

I have asked my pawesome furiends if you have any means to help to donate a little towards Dexter’s medical care. He does have medical insurance but as most of you know this comes with a limit and a hefty excess charge. I would really like to help to ensure that my granny and pops can focus 100% on him without worrying about the finances. Unfortunately cousin Cassidy is also very unwell at the moment and as you all know everything adds up. (Please also send Cassidy your positivity and love.) I don’t want the monster who has caused so much heartbreak already to have the upper hand because of money. If you are able to help in any way I, and all of my family, would really appreciate it. You can donate here: HELP DEXTER RECOVER

Your money will go directly towards Dexter’s medical bill and if we’re lucky enough to have any extra funds the remaining money will be donated to the NAWT (National Animal Welfare Trust in the UK) to help them continue to rescue animals, this is where our family adopted Dexter from. I hope and pray that Dexter will make it home to live a ‘normal’ (whatever that means) life. Please send him all the prayers and positivity you can. He’s trying his best but he’s fighting a horrible infection and if we can I’d love to help him.

I’m so sorry furiends to bring this horrific news and undoubtedly shock and sadden you. My humans and I have spent the last 48 hours in shock and tears. However the generosity of humans already has restored my faith in humanity and it’s clear not evfurryone is so heartless. The majority of souls on earth are pure and kind. Poor Dex was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. The local police are investigating, Dexter’s story has been published on local radio and media and I remain hopeful that the monster who did this will be brought to justice. But in all honesty, all I truly wish for is for Dexter to survive and have a good quality of life left. He is still so young (he will be two years old at the end of next month) and he didn’t deserve this.

Sending love and hugs to you all.

Bisous, Bailey

  23. No animal deserves this! We’re so sorry Dexter (and his family) is having to go through such a horrible ordeal. We hope the monster who did this is caught and punished, although no punishment would be bad enough to fit the crime. May Dexter heal.


  24. It grieves me to read this. Dexter, his humans and veterinary staff, are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the little one heal and the person who assaulted him found be brought to justice.


  25. So sad to read this horrible news. I’m very glad Dexter found his way home. Though his recovery may be a long road, we wish Dexter a speedy one. All our best and purrs for Dexter, his family and his veterinary team.

    Also, our congratulations to your mum and dad on their wedding. We know they are meant for each other, but, of course, Bailey, you already knew that. And, we’re glad your mum is receiving proper treatment for her condition. That too takes a little time, but we are sure she’s on the road to feeling better.


I'd love to hear what you think....
