O'Malley the alley cat resources O'Malley the alley cat came to us as a stray from Bradford who was living in bins. He looked in a bad way - fur matted, scabs on his body and the poor fella also had no teeth and a sore mouth! After having him checked over at the vets they said the reason for his sore mouth and lack of teeth is because in the past he had severe gingivitis which causes the gums around the teeth to become inflamed and very painful. They sent O'Malley away with some medication and despite his bad start we were determined to do all we could for him! Then lock down happened and the decision was made to send O'Malley out to foster as we didn't think he would have coped being at the centre.
