Last year we received a call from someone who had found a cat caught on a barbed wire fence.

The cat, who has since been named Barbie, was thankfully held up by her finder so she didn’t suffer further injuries.
When our SPCA team arrived at the property, they had to cut her free from the fence.

The team then rushed her to the vets. The wire was tangled up in her skin, leaving a very large and messy wound which required surgery to close it with a skin flap.
