A Chance for Soki, A Sweet Kitten

Update posted by Cristina Maghanoy On Jan 17, 2020

Soki's had his bath. As his skin was unhealthy, quite a bit of fur did fall out but topical medication is now also applied to his skin after his bath. Hopefully he really gets better. His large tummy can also be slightly seen here. He doesn't seem to be in pain if it is touched but you can feel it is soft and seems swollen. He is getting larger and longer but needs to develop more muscle. We are also going to be changing his food.

We noticed Soki's skin is red and dry. He's had a couple of deworming medicines at this point. On top of his large stomach, it's possibly due to parasites (mites or something else), allergies (maybe food) or hormonal. He will have his bath today and likely daily as it's a medicated bath for his skin and he will be spending time in the sun (thru glass windows) in case it's hormonal. He's still too little to draw out blood so we need to look at what we can do while we wait for him to get bigger.

Today, Soki played a lot with his friend. They get a little rough so we have to break them up at times. The vet said he hasn't had his second bath yet as she's still observing him.

Below have been the costs for Soki this week:

Something Soki learned from his friend, climbing up on shoes!

Soki is now allowed to explore the clinic under supervision and he met his fellow resident cats, this male and one other female, who are also both rescues. This kitty would soon become a friend and role model. One of the most important things he was able to do this day was use the litter box!

You can start to see what Soki's eyes will look like. I think they are the green eyes most domestic cats in our area have.

Soki was given a bit of a wash today. He's still being kept inside his box but he is let out a short while as he is starting to get curious. The cloudiness in his eyes have started to clear in both eyes. I think it looks a bit green but the cloudiness makes it seem blue.

Below have been the costs for Soki so far:

His right eye is starting to clear out. But the main success this day was Soki started eating wet cat food, not just the milk and baby food. This is good because it is another step towards being healthy, and he won't be needing extra special care, just a little special care. :-)

Soki getting stronger and was able to climb up the sides of his box and brace his paws on the top edge. His eyes were a little cloudy. The vet said he was scratched on one eye and also conjunctivitis so he needed eye drops.

Soki was rescued December 29, 2019. We thought of the fundraising late, so I am going to be doing a few speed updates. Day 2 is when we realized Soki had a chance. He was sitting up in his little box and would look to the direction of a voice calling for him.

At this point, he hasn't been cleaned very well yet as he was still weak. We had just wiped his face a little bit with wet cotton. Those little flaps in the inner corner of his eyes are the third lids. The vet explained it commonly comes out when they are sickly.
