Adopted November 2013
Tommy was dropped off to Gagemount Animal Hospital
with his brother. They were both heavily infested with fleas and it was
soon apparent that both these kittens were very ill. Despite
Gagemount's best efforts Tommy's brother passed away after being in
their care for only one day.
Soon after, Tommy became very ill and was diagnosed with Panleukopenia, a
disease that cripples the immune system and reeks havoc on the gastro
intestinal tract. The staff at Gagemount were saddened by this diagnosis
because 95% of kittens under two months old with Panleukopenia die,
even with treatment. Tommy was 6 weeks at the time of his diagnosis.
Since Animal Welfare wasn’t giving up on Tommy neither were the G.A.H
team. Little Tommy was on round the clock care, going home with the
technicians each night, hooked up to IV fluids, being hand fed and
receiving tons of TLC. After a couple weeks he finally started
improving! His appetite increased and he was eating on his own, his soft
stool had subsided and he was starting to become a normal kitten again!
It has now been a month since Tommy's amazing recovery and he now has a
new loving forever home which he shares with two other cats (both were
also rescued by Animal Welfare) and a dog.
If it wasn't for Animal Welfare little Tommy would not be in a cozy home today.
