Such a beautiful idea. 🙏💕🙏💕

What a lovely idea, Sarah and Venus can help each other heal. :)

Fund are stil needed towards Minka`s treatment. A target of £7,500 is the tarhget. But anythihg over that will go towards anohter cat called verus, (In the care of the charity;( Feline Friends) Venus was born wihtout an anus, so she has to defecate through her vagina which is extremely painful. She needs an operation which can only be done at the private hospital where Minka was treated; "Queen Mother" I believe that Sarah Minka`s owmer would like to adopt Venus. What do others think?Last edited: 2019-12-02 12:49:42 by janiejewel1649

Such sad news, we were all willing her to pull through. Thoughts with Minka's family.

Just wondering if owner still needs funds to pay for Minka's fight for life? This is such a tragedy after Minka survived for so long.

Hi Sarah, I am so, so sorry that your beautiful girl Minka has passed to the bridge, as she tried so hard to live. Nightie, night, pretty Minka, sleep tight, and have fun with my cat who also died in my arms two years ago (Blood problems, and severe kidney problems) . And is waiting to play. RIP+ God Bless x A~~~Candle~~~burns for you. Run free (HUG) X One day when the time is right you will meet your girl at the bridge, and she will show you the way. Forever together, Now lying in the arms of an Angel surrounded by love.

Please look down upon your owner Minka who really need your strength at this very awful time for them. Ask them to remember the happy times they shared with you. And that they have not lost you forever (HUG) X

Can someone pass the tissues please? :-( Last edited: 2019-11-28 20:11:53 by janiejewel1649

Minka passed away earlier today. She died in her owner 's arms. Her owner is heartbroken. So cruel after she fought so hard after being alone and injured for so long on the tracks of the London Underground. My deepest sympathy to her owner.
Sandra and Murphy cat
Donated towards her vet care.This girl is a fighter! She truly deserves to live. Thinking of her mum x x
Georgy Porgy
Have donated. Keep fighting Minka. Your family need you. Stay strong X
mathers22
I hope she gets better x
janiejewel1649
PLEASE HELP Minka recover. Please donate to her vet treatment. Owners insurance only covers half. Hope Minka pulls through. Come on Minka, you can do it. (Gentle HUG) X)Last edited: 2019-11-27 16:50:25 by janiejewel1649

Have put on the blog for dogs...hope it helps with the appeal.

Minka stopped breathing this morning and her owner was told to expect the worst...but she has survived and been rescuscitated and is still fighting. She deserves to pull through!
Skywalker99
From Minka's twitter: Quick Minka Update
She licked some water!
God she is a fighter...
They are now going to try her in oral liquid food... trusting in a power bigger than me with this one! Learning so much about life, myself and others.She is a teacher.
for being here!

Her owners insurance covers less than half the estimate of her treatment, so they are grateful for all donations however small. https://www.gofundme.com/f/lets-help-minka
Viv B
Love and best wishes to Minka and family. x
nalamissing
Minks was actually found in a tunnel on the London Underground, how she got down there from street level is a mystery. She has fought to live for a week since being found, I sincerely hope she makes it.
Skywalker99
It says on Twitter she has developed an infection. Everything crossed for this little fighter.

PLEASE HELP MINKA
Skywalker99
The amount the owners insurance will pay to treat Minka has been reached. Please donate for Minka's care, she has come so far.
Viv B
Minka is so brave and fighting hard - I gave a small donation last night, every little helps. Really hoping for her and her family.
janiejewel1649
Please can you donate towards Minka`s treatment? Owners funds are running out. I have just donated. THANK YOU x
janiejewel1649
Thank you Skywalker99, and the dogfindder for the updates on beautiful Muinka. I will be donating.

So pleased she is brighter, and managed a miaow. She must be helped by getting comfort, and soothing words from he owner. And I am sending Minka absent haling, and my prayers. Keep on in there Minka (Gentle (HUG) X_
.
I’ve been in touch with owner & Minka is brighter today - she managed a miaow during visiting, but her condition is still critical due to her kidney function, blood pressure, weight loss etc. The hospital will reintroduce food very slowly via a feeding tube, she is still very poorly. Owners insurance funding will run out on Monday and as her condition is so frail she will need hospitalisation / intensive care for some time. The local community have been rallying round organising things like a bake sale to raise funds - and its them that have kindly set up the fundraiser for Minka - they need all the help they can get so please help with a donation and share her page thank you so much everyone, I know that it’s your messages of support and healing prayers for Minka which are keeping her owner going - https://www.gofundme.com/f/lets-help-minka

"MINKA NEEDS PRAYERS‼️... everyone thk u for wishes. Can I ask that whoever can sends prayers. My babe is holding on but is really poorly. Kidney failure, broken hip and other complicstions.. I am waiting to hear more. Pls pray for her thk you

And

She has been moved to the Queen mother. She hanging on a thread. They are not hopeful but are treating her as if she has a fighting chance. My heart is broken I am praying that a miracle has happened last night."
janiejewel1649
Any news on Minka please?
janiejewel1649
So sorry that Minka has been injured. I hope, and pray that Minka will make a full recovery. And am sending her absent healing, and positive thoughts; praying for her, and Sarah too. (Gentle hug) x Come on Minka you can do it. xx
.
Minka has a fractured hip and an injury to her head. She has lost a lot of weight, is emaciated and dehydrated, she was found “on the tracks” close to Arsenal Station and an RSPCA inspector was called, she’s on a drip and in an oxygen tent and receiving the very best care - I am absolutely praying that she will have the strength to get through this awful ordeal. Sarah, her owner has never stopped looking for her since 07th October, they have such a special bond and I have everything crossed that the next photo I see may be one of them together again. So until then, hang in there Minka - there are so many people willing you on and sending love and hugs for a speedy recovery. All credit to Sarah for never giving up - she did everything right and could not have tried harder to find this beautiful cat. Thank you to everyone that has shared across social media, put up posters and helped search x

Any news?
janiejewel1649
Good that you have 120 posters up already. Post in post offices too if not already done so. As it is out of character for Minka to go missing she may be shut in somewhere. Check ALL outbuildings, including empty houses, and cellars THOROUGHLY as some cats will hide in, or behind an object within, especially if timid. when neighbors are checking their outbuildings make sure you are present as cats can stay very still and quiet. And They are renowned for it And they are more likely to come out of their "hidey hole" if the owner is present. Check any decking too. Empty contents of the hoover onto the garden as her scent will be there. Leave her litter tray in the garden too. Put some tuna. or warm chicken in her dish, and call her; night/early morning is best. Rattle some treats too. Place her UNWASHED blanket into a clean container, along with your scent too. Leave in the garden in a sheltered spot, or hang on the washing line if dry: used towels too. Wipe her scent on your garden fences, doors gates too; anything leading up to the garden. Try a squeaky toy as it may attract her attention. Ask around, especially those with children, as they can be very observant where animals are concerned. Take a good walk around the area, holing an object with her scent on, and rattle some Dreamies. Someone maybe feeding her (Common problem), Just because you can`t see a cat, doesn`t mean they aren`r around. Some cats that have been posted as LOST have been FOUND in the same area being fed by others. One cat for THREE MONTHS, another cat SIX MONTHS, so you never know. Bear in mind too that cats have very flexible spine so they can squeeze into very small spaces; ( about 3' wide 7/8 cm) so has she managed to get into a partially opened window, and is now trapped? Leave no stone unturned. Ask family, friends, and neighbous to share as well as DL. Twitter too. Post a LOST CAT ad with photo of Minka in a National newspaper in case she has climbed into a vehicle eg: a delivery van which isn`t uncommon for cats to do. Also is there a dominant cat in the area? As sometimes they will chase a less dominant cat out of it`s own territory. The cat will only return when they think it`s "Safe" enough for them to do so. But some can become lost, and disorientated
When searching for Minka use the sane deodorant that you use on a day to basis as she will recognize the scent. And your the one she trusts. Paws xd.

LOST CAT - ADVICE FOR OWNER PLEASE! I’ve seen previously that people add specific advice when a cat is missing, not sure who it is who tends to put it here so am hoping you will read this and add your thoughts - what else can the owner do - she has put up 120 posters, put fliers through doors, in shop windows, asked neighbours, tweeted, put on Facebook, instagram, other lost cat agencies, advised Battersea, The Mayhew, Stokey Cats & Dogs - please if anyone can add anything here that might help pls do?! If anyone is willing to share the poster to any relevant groups on Facebook please do as well. Owner is really worried now that Minka has been missing since 07 Oct. thank you all
.
Sharing on twitter and instagram. I’ve raged Battersea , The Mayhew & Stokey Cats & Dogs Home - if you haven’t already, please do fill in their online report forms. Even though Minka has a microchip it’s always best to fill in the forms too. She had such beautiful & distinctive eyes, really hope she will be returned to you
