For the Osaka Kitten Nursery we wish to buy an Incubator and an oxygen generator , to provide even better care for neonatal and sick kitten !
An incubator is more then a fancy looking sick bay . It's help to provide best possible surrounding for kitten in need !
Perfect regular of humidity, oxygen and temperature, protect from out influences !
We just lost a kitten again because we couldn't provide best possible care !
At the first look it's a lot of money , but if I calculate down a stay at the hopital for 1 day for neonatal kitten cost me up 2 20.000¥ with are around +\- 180€
Because somebody have to feed and potty him medicate them and watch over them !
So this kitten now has pneumonia would mean 5-7 days in the hospital , that already almost the amount we need !
No image doing that just 2 in a season and were already over it !
And still it's no guaranty the kitten will make it .
So in case we don't let them stay at the vet and try our best to provide best care we can offer ( medication, subq , tubefeed ) the chance for the kitten is still low , because we can't provide the humidity and oxygen amount we need !
An incubator is a second womb , a ICU unite to safe life !
Every time I loose a kitten I ask myself , what could I do better ! Because of lack of equipment not because of care and passion should be not the answer !
