And still Kittens
Alegra, one of our hand-reared bottle babies, now nearly 10 weeks old, had a fever and temperature of over 40 on Sunday morning and had to be rushed to a 24 hour vet, Animania, in Fourways/Broadacres.
They immediately did some blood work, showing she is FIV/FeLV negative, but which revealed little other than she had an infection which caused her to become anaemic. She was immediately put on a drip and kept overnight. After another treatment a few hours later the temperature was down to a more normal 38 degrees. She remained on the drip overnight and she appeared to stabilise by Monday morning and we were able to collect her at 3p.m. and take her back to the shelter where she is being monitored. So far so good. Having 24 hour care the account was quite high so any contributions to her Vets bill would be greatly appreciated.
On the video below you can see our 4 grey tabby Weather babies having a game of golf, all 4 are still up for adoption and were featured in our article of 24 November. The foster mom had incorrectly sexed them as all males, however, we re-sexed them when having their 1st vaccinations and only Sleet is a male, the other 3 are females, Drizzle, Storm and Mist.
Shiray, our female tuxi featured last week, is still waiting for her forever home and has sent a letter to Santa asking for same. It’s a difficult time of year for finding homes for kittens with many families going away over the Festive Season.
Although many of the accounts with the Vets are paid personally by myself I rarely get donations directly to me but last week I did. Thank you Charlene Olivier, greatly appreciated and much needed. Also thank you to those people who donated packets of food, tins and pouches in our bin inside Pick’nPay and those left with Terri of Biz-X-Press and Terri thank you for once again stepping up last minute to do posters for a missing cat, it saved us valuable time.
Approved adoption applications and home-checks apply whether it be for any of the kittens, teenagers or adult cats at the shelter.
Our adoption fee of R850 covers 1st vacs and boosters as well as 1st rabies, deworming, deflea, and sterilization when done by one of our nominated Vets.
