Wow…this sweet girl has been through a lot! We’re so happy we have Chowder and were able to get her the medical care she so desperately needed! If we didn’t rescue her when we did, she would probably not be alive today. She had been so uncomfortable and in pain for so long, we are so excited to now see her well and loving life!
Chowder was found outside and taken to a small county animal control. When they found her, she was really sick. She had a bad respiratory infection and bad dental disease. She was treated and was able to clear the infection. Because she was so sick, she has some chronic changes to her lungs. She has been weaned from her meds and is doing great! She also had to have some extensive dental work, and now her mouth feels so much better! She can now eat without pain and is able to enjoy her food.
Despite everything this lovely girl has been through, she is still happy! You can just feel the happiness radiate from her and we swear she has a big smile on her face. We can’t wait for Chowder to find the perfect home for her because we know whoever adopts her, will love her to pieces. So if you’re looking for a laid-back, loving cat, please come by and meet Chowder!
Chowder is FIV+, but don’t let that scare you! FIV+ cats can live long and healthy lives. They can also live safely with FIV negative cats. FIV is spread through severe bite wounds, so it is important that your kitties get along. To learn more about FIV, please read the articles under the Advice tab.
