On Tuesday morning our beloved fur-baby Bosley was shot by some callous b*^#tard with a pistol crossbow. He was taken to the vet where he was sedated, x-rays taken, examination done and then he was anaesthetised and the arrow was removed. We were very lucky that the arrow had not entered the abdominal cavity and narrowly missed his spine. We are so grateful to the veterinary staff for their professional and calm approach and for helping our dear Bosley (and his human Mamma) in such a stressful and traumatising time. We have been humbled by the offers of donations towards the vet bills and want to say thank you so much if you are able to "givealittle". We would like to make a donation to the SPCA and/or Paw Justice and/or the Humane Society if we receive excess funds. Paw Justice is also offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the successful location and prosecution of the person/people responsible (conditions apply). See their Facebook page.

Use of funds

Payment of veterinary bills. We would like to donate to the SPCA if we have surplus funds.

Bosley's new life  8 February 2020

Posted by: Jo Eden

Hi all. Thanks for your concern, support and caring to myself, my hubby and our gorgeous boy Bosley. It's been over 3 weeks since Bosley was shot. The police are still pursuing this matter and would be grateful to anyone around Rosier Rd or Woodglen Rd in Glen Eden that has any information to get in touch with them. Please share our story so as to make more people aware of the dangers out there to our beloved fur-babies.

Bosley luckily is completely healed. He's back up to his old way, bullying Lily and Pipi ! We have tried to "Bosley-proof" our property by putting a netting fence along the back of our property where he used to leave our property and a temporary netting "gate" across our driveway. I've also just purchased a second hand gate for our driveway which will hopefully make it harder for him to leave also.

Bosley's got a bad back and we've never seen him jump or climb anywhere so hoped this would keep him in. Then we got freaked out in case he managed to jump over the fence (maybe to chase another cat) and couldn't get back (if he was being chased by another cat or a dog or God forbid got injured again) so my hubby has put a "cat-flap" in the fence for him to come back through (it only opens inwards). I tell you all, we've been so worried about him and we've barely let him out of our site.

Anyway, just wanted to say a big "thank you" to all that have supported us through this trying time. We are trying to keep our heads above water (and paddling fast!) and now I'm back at work, things financially are starting to look better.

We would still be grateful if you could share our give-a-little page and our Facebook story to friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email. The link is below or you can share this givealittle page.

Kind regards
