Celia Hammond reports on a little tabby rescue kitten who had to undergo complex surgery to rectify a congenital deformity of her sternum (the breastbone).
Update on Rebecca who was found alone & collapsed Christmas Day. She is doing well following her complex surgery for a congenital deformity of the sternum which causes difficulty in breathing a rare and critical condition. Her cast comes off this week. Yay! #emergencykittens pic.twitter.com/zuE8xlYtKc

Celia Hammond Animal Trust is based in London, Kent and East Sussex. Celia Hammond was a famous model often photographed by the celebrated David Bailey. When she retired from modelling she set up her animal charity. An amazing lady.
It is amazing and bizarre to me that humans can be so compassionate and caring to help this kitten, just one kitten, live a normal life after being born with a deformity while simultaneously millions of cats are killed brutally in Asia for meat or fur and euthanised when healthy in the US because they are unwanted.
