Last week, we accepted a little black kitty into our care. 🐾 She was seemingly healthy when we got her, though a little stressed about the move from outdoors to indoors which is to be expected. We sent her to foster care for her to wait out the 7 to 14 day ‘quarantine period’ before her first vaccines. The reason we do this with new intakes is because it can take 7 to 14 days for symptoms of underlying illnesses to show. We were just getting to the end of that period with little Sooty when all of a sudden she got very sick. 😞 She was rushed to the vet today, where she was diagnosed with the onset of the panleukopenia virus. 💔 Sooty is now hospitalized and receiving treatment in hopes she can be stabilized and pull through. Please keep Sooty in your thoughts, she needs all the support she can get to fight this. ❤

This is a good reminder to anyone who rescues/fosters – when you get a cat fresh from outside, even if the vet clears them on the first day, they need to be quarantined for 7 to 14 days. The move from outside to inside is stressful, and stress can trigger underlying illnesses that may have initially been asymptomatic. It’s imperative for the safety of the cat and any other animals in the household that this quarantine period be completed so everyone can be healthy and safe! 🐾❤
Our vet bills at the moment are a massive burden, and though we will continue doing absolutely everything for our animals we appreciate any support from anyone who is able to help. ❤ If you would like to contribute to Sooty’s incoming vet bills, you can donate to our transparent account 2201832152 / 2010, or to our darujme account: Thank you in advance ❤
