I spotted a kitten on the streets when I went out to buy our food, he was almost got hit by a car. He is so skinny and has eye infections too.
We have visited the vet already. He was given antibiotics, vitamins and other eyedrops. He might have a virus or his eyes got poked/stabbed. Wasn't able to do a blood check because he is super skinny, malnourished and dehydrated. Good thing is, he is active, alert and eats and drinks on his own. Recommended to be dewormed next week if he'll gain weight.
I've met the momma cat late last year. No litter yet, promised her to be fixed sometime soon but was not able to do so because my savings were used for medical emergency of some of my rescues. She got her first litter early this year, but still I wasn't able to get her fixed. Then covid happen and voila! She has now her 2nd litter on which two has eye infection. I finally decided to bring her home as the streets isn't safe for the babies and for them to get treated.
Now, 35 is the new total of rescues 😹 I don't live in the US. Spay/Neuter program is rare in my country. Very few shelters (maybe less than 10) around the country too, so I decided years ago to open my house for strays. My rescues are fixed, except for the rescues this year.
I am a dog/cat rescuer and adopter, previously housing 12 dog and 28 cats. The whole country was placed under lockdown on March 15, all work except for the essentials are halted and so is my work. I am a lone rescuer and adopter who depends on the paycheck for my rescues to survive.
