Michel – Rescued With a Severe Upper Respiratory Infection; Totally Infested With Fleas

01/01/18 – Happy New Year! What better way to start 2018 than by reporting a happy beginning for sweet, big boy, Michael. It was late November when Michael was rescued by a 4 Paws 1 Heart supporter who usually helps with dog rescues. And although she doesn’t have a lot of cat knowledge, she couldn’t turn her back from what was certainly a very sick cat who showed up at her mother’s house. Michael’s eye was nearly closed and he was totally infested with fleas. We authorized Michael to be seen at the veterinary clinic and a huge abscess was found under his eye. He also tested positive for FIV. He was later transferred to someone who was more familiar with cats and after a few hospital visits, Michael’s health finally began to improve and all signs of infection were gone. And, GUESS WHAT? Michael was tested again and he was found to be NEGATIVE for FIV and FeLV. So a lesson learned for all of our friends, if your cat is tested while diagnosed with an infection, you may want to retest once the infection is cleared. This very sweet boy was adopted this week end to a loving home and we are confident that he will spend the rest of his life with much love. ~ dianamichael 11:23:17michael 12:9:17michael 12:31:17
