big boy's story
BigBoy was adopted from the Euclid Beach Cat Project. He’s a Siamese Lynx/Tabby mix that is about 5 years old, and FIV+. He is a giant blue-eyed lover boy, who enjoys making biscuits on his blankies, batting around catnip mousies, falling over for belly rubs, snoring while napping, and just being super adorable! Prior to life in his forever home, BigBoy had a terrific human that fed and watched over him for the 3 years when he lived as an outside cat. His forever human, Jen is thrilled to have BigBoy as part of the family!
Kumo is a pretty little girl who had ringworm. Her mama tried a multitude of over the counter remedies, with no success. After discussing with the Weirdo leadership team, it was decided Kumo needed a vet. We were able to get her into the vet where she received a combination of shots to get her on the mend. Kumo is doing much better and her mama was able to contain the infection and prevent it from spreading to her siblings.
Ruckus is a four-year-old Bombay male with the most beautiful green eyes. His dad suspected he had a urinary blockage. We were able to get Ruckus to the vet, where he needed to be sedated and catheterized to attempt to clear the blockage. The vet did not feel as though Ruckus had any stones, so they removed the catheter and sent him home on antibiotics. Unfortunately, less than a week later, Ruckus took a turn for the worse. He became lethargic and was struggling to use the bathroom. When he was able to go, there was blood in his urine. At one point, his dad found him lying in his litter box, which was very unlike Ruckus. The leadership team decided it was in Ruckus’ best interest to get to an emergency vet. Ruckus was blocked and needed to stay overnight in the hospital. After his night in the hospital, Ruckus was transferred to a vet clinic that would be able to keep him for observation for three more days. After a few more blood draws, Ruckus was able to finally go home. With some diet changes that include prescription food and antibiotics, Ruckus is expected to make a full recovery!
