Mickey – Will Have Exploratory Surgery to Determine if He’s a Boy or Girl

12/15/20 – Calling for prayers for this very sweet boy who was abandoned when his family moved and was left to fend for himself. A kind woman who tries to assist stray cats was able to catch Mickey who kept hanging around his former home and brought him to All About Animals to get vetted. Her intention was to find him a permanent home — actually she thought Mickey was a Minnie because when Mickey was examined at AAAR, there were ‘complications’ with his male ‘parts’. A friend of 4p1h who works there suggested the rescuer contact us and so did our friend. Thankfully, our great veterinary at Orion Animal Hospital, Dr. Zalac, got him in the next day after I contacted her (today) and she called me after the examination. This is the huge issue. Last night Mickey started bleeding from his rectum and today Dr. Z said she could feel a penis but she could not feel any testicles. She suspects that Mickey may be a hermaphrodite and only by doing exploratory surgery will we know what the real condition is. As far as the blood — it could be a reaction to stress which can happen. So in short for now, Dr. Z will be running some tests and providing antibiotics if needed. In 2 weeks, we will determine next steps for this little guy/girl. Of course, this is all predicated on his FIV/FeLV. I will let you know more when I hear. – diana
