There's a new face around here! ❤
This beautiful and incredibly sweet girl was found in a dumpster in New York. A kind lady trapped her and brought her home. She couldn't keep her due to circumstances and posted her - and because it sounded like the kitty could have potential health issues, we worried about her ending up in the wrong hands. We brought her here, and she is not in the best shape! Covered in so many fleas and dirt that her skin is all cakey. She is also pretty malnourished, just skin and bones. We've heard some wheezing and sneezing, and she's had on and off eye issues. Her fecal test came back positive for roundworm unfortunately and she's had diarrhea. Poor thing has a lot going on! She's in a quarantine area away from everyone else of course (as all kitties we bring in) and we are being super careful. Her FIV/FeLV test was negative thankfully. We've seen huge improvements in a short period of time, especially with her eyes (see last pics!). She has a tremendous appetite and is SO sweet and friendly. She was clearly someone's pet before. She loves head rubs and her purr box just won't turn off! LOL. Once she is all better, we are hoping that Blackberry (aka Soot) will have a friend. We are still deciding on a name for her, but it will be perfect. :) More updates coming soon, and we are praying she has a speedy recovery and is healed. :)
Evening of her arrival... not looking so good! She is doing a lot better now!
