The paralysed cat being treated in one of the make-shift field hospitals in the city .. This field hospital is in fact where the locals of the neighborhood are treated when injured by regime fire or regime shelling. There is a severe lack of medicines and doctors in this neighborhood, but the cat was treated under anaesthetic as several attempts were made to remove the mortar shell shrapnel from her back without anaesthetic but it was unsuccessful.
It should be noted: We treated this cat, as with several animals daily, on the basis of humanity and caring for life and our surroundings. The cat was treated on the basis we cannot watch any life – animal or human – suffer. We did not treat the cat because of your reactions or the uproar and messages received from animal rights organisations and the international world. Trust, the world and its opinions means nothing to us inside Syria anymore.
