Thanks to that AMAZIMG local community support, Fanny is well-known to MANY commuters who travel through Gipsy Hill station, where she can often be found sitting on passengers’ laps or offering herself up for a stroke.
For those who don’t know Fanny… Fanny was helped by the very kind help of the local Gipsy Hill community in 2016…
When Fanny needed emergency treatment after she was hit by by a car. Fanny’s owners were told that their pet had a ruptured diaphragm, and would need surgery costing in the region of £2,000. Upon hearing the devastating news, Fanny’s fans set up an emergency fundraising page to pay for her emergency operation, that once set up reached its target within just an hour!
Fanny is a very special cat, with a very special local community at Gipsy Hill!
And when Fanny sadly became seriously ill in December 2020 with a severe infection, it was her community friends who again rallied to her help and supported her with £880 in donations to get her well. After many months of nursing at home with her owner and many vet visits and treatment, she is back again visiting Gipsy Hill Station with the warmer weather.
If you would like help support Fanny, she has a dedicated Fanny the Gipsy Hill Cat Fund for donations.
Fanny also has her own twitter and instagram account TheGipsyHillCat, and a video… with over over 2.1 million views on facebook! You can email Fanny too Fanny@gipsyhillfriends.org. Follow this link to hear the about her latest news: Friends of Fanny the Cat .
A message from a Gipsy Hill Friend
Hello commuters. I’m Fanny The Gipsy Hill cat. Even though I’m little, I was born all the way back in 2011. I really enjoy coming to see you all and keeping your laps warm!
I have a loving home nearby with two fellow cats and a human. They feed me well and I have lots of nice, clean and warm beds.
Thank you for stroking me and making me so well known on social media.
And please keep my corner litter free.
I don’t even need cat litter…
Please don’t leave out food for Fanny on the platform, as we had problems with foxes. If people would like to help Fanny, then this web page is best to share for Fanny Fund donations.
