On Feb. 10th a very ill stray kitten was brought to Northwood on emergency. She was found on Monroe St. and Allen Rd. near the Circle K. She presented laterally recumbent, minimally responsive, hypothermic (body temp too low to read on thermometer) and hypoglycemic (blood glucose too low to read). She was very thin and loaded with fleas. She was close to death. The kitten, we named Rose, was treated with IV fluids and warming measures. It took a few days, but she was finally up and eating on her own. She was estimated to be about 9 weeks old (est. DOB 10-24-18). She was negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. She developed nasal discharge consistent with an upper respiratory tract infection. Rose also developed a quarter-sized ulcerated skin lesion. It resulted in a patch of dead skin which healed as a scar. She also had issues with ringworm which was treated. Rose had been through a lot. She is a fighter to survive all she has been through. She may never be a cuddly cat but hopefully her time at Fat Cat Cafe will get her acclimated to being handled. Rose has been spayed, microchipped and has completed all her kitten vaccines.
Rose resided at Fat Cat Cafe for a time, but she was too nervous with all the new cats and people around and she just hid. So if you are willing to give a shy little torti a piece of your heart, Rose is the cat for you.
