Treatment costs of stray cat who has bullet in her spine

Update posted by Efsun AYDIN On Mar 02, 2021

After long time, I would like to update you on the health status of cat Penelope. I hope you are doing well. In her case, it takes a while to do everything possible. First due to delicacy of her problem and second due to the pandemic.

In the beginning her general health issues and urinary crystallization problem were solved. Then we were expecting removal of the bullet on her spine. The veterinarians at the Faculty of Veterinary, advised that a surgery could be performed, which involved high risks due to the situation of bullet on her spine (prevents feeling her tail), including possibility of being paralyzed. Therefore leaving the bullet as it is, could be a safe solution at that time they said.

Penelope is also diagnosed with feline asthma and last year she has had attacks for 3 times.

Our initial thoughts were to get a clean bill of health from the veterinarian and find her a forever home. However, things didn’t work in that direction and we adopted her ourselves.

Currently Penelope still does not feel her tail. Although she doesn’t have commend of her tail, she started to move it a little by time. In general, her health is good and with lifelong medical management for asthma, hopefully she will live a quality life. Still we are not fully convinced with the bullet issue and I will be looking for other medical centers to get different ideas in the long run. Though we can never risk her wellbeing.

Penelope has an IG account (@thekittypenelope) through which you may see what she is up to & you can follow her if you like, if not already. She is such a cute girl.

With warmest wishes.
