A woman came out of a balding kitten, who was waiting for an euthanasia, and he turned into a chic cat - Wikipet
Now everyone who sees Bunny admires her polished look, her well-fed muzzle and well-groomed hair, and almost a year ago no one even wanted to come up to her.
An almost bald 5-week-old kitten got from the street to the Las Vegas city shelter and no one wanted to take and treat him. The kitten had to live a maximum of a week, and then he would be euthanized.
But he was lucky when he was noticed by Nikki Martinez, a private cat rescuer who came to the shelter to look at new animals. She immediately noticed a thin half-bald kitten sitting in a cage, who caught her eye and meowed in response. He seemed to say, "Save me, I want to live!"
Nikki decided to give the kitten a second chance. She called him Bunny and drove to the veterinarian, where it turned out that the baby had a fungal infection - ringworm and therefore she was bald. The doctor prescribed antifungal pills to the kitten, but after a few days it became clear that for some reason they did not work.
Moreover, because of them, on the contrary, the kitten felt worse and Nikki decided to save the kitten by other means. First of all, it was necessary to stabilize his weight, the kitten was very thin.
“In the early days, she was so weak that her husband looked at her regularly and reported to me whether she was still alive,” says Nikki Martinez, “Besides she had a very poor appetite, she ate almost nothing and had to give first her liquid nutritional supplements with a syringe. Only after that she began to slowly eat wet food. "
Every day was a feat for Bunny. The kitten turned out to be strong and fought for its survival.
Two months later, Bunny recovered almost a kilogram, the fungus was defeated and her hair began to grow slowly.Two months later, Bunny recovered almost a kilogram, the fungus was defeated and her hair began to grow slowly.
When Bunny got better, Nikki had a hard day breaking up. The kitten was found by a loving family, which continued to give her medicines. Soon, Bunny began to turn into a very beautiful cat with unexpectedly soft fluffy hair.
Now she is an adult strong cat, very affectionate, but with a strong character. Nikki is not tired of being proud of her and her work.
