Damon & Edmon
About 3 weeks ago, a feeder in her 50s begged me to take in (foster) a mother cat and her 2 kittens, who were abandoned by someone she knew. I was reluctant to at first because one of the kittens was obviously sick and I did not want other cats I'm fostering infected. But finding no one able/willing to take them in, I can't find it in myself to leave them to their fate.
The mother, whom I named Cher, has severe fungal growth in her left eye; her right eye is beginning to get similarly infected.
One of her kittens, a ginger boy about 2 months old, has a severe flu which results in so much phlegm in his throat that he couldn't swallow the food he hungrily ate up; he also has the beginning of his mother's infection in his right eye which is smaller than his right. He, Edmon, was hospitalized at AAVC, Yishun, from 8 to 14 April. On finding him worse than ever, I sought 2nd opinion at ARVC.
The kind ladies at ARVC took pity on him and offered to give foster care, to my great relief and hope. However, little Edmon did not make it. He passed away on 23 Apr and I arranged for his cremation on 24 Apr.
Edmon's brother, Damon, despite being vaccinated on 8 Apr, also came down with flu; but although he sneezed flecks of blood, it did not become as severe. He is still on antibiotics and Colostrum supplement acquired from his visit to ARC on 17 Apr.
For the mother Cher, I brought her to AAVC, then to ARVC for a 2nd opinion on 24 Apr when her condition did not improve. The vet then prescribed supplements, Lysine and eye drops, but warned that Cher's condition is likely irreversible and may develop into something more serious called Glaucoma (a condition where her eye ball will enlarge due to inability to drain fluid) which will cause a lot of pain. He had suggested a review in 2 weeks' time when, if her condition did not improve, more drastic measures may be called for.
These series of visits to the vets have really drained my resources and made a huge hole in the monthly food and medicine funds I would set aside for the cats, including one with renal failure.
I hope very much to receive your aid, on the expenses (receipts attached) incurred as mentioned above.
Thank you very much for your attention.
