9/14/23 – On August 23 I received an e mail from Catherine, a volunteer for a great rescue–Pet Adoption Alternative of Warren. Catherine said that Peanut, at 10 weeks old, had been fighting for her life since she was brought into animal control on July 1. Unfortunately, the animal control was unable to deal with her medical issues (they also thought she was blind) and although PAAW was saddled with many severe medical cases they assisted Catherine in pulling Peanut from the city’s animal control. PAAW helped with transfusions at one veterinary hospital and Peanut was treated with medication for FIP but she appeared to be allergic to that and just was not getting better. Catherine contacted us to ask if we could cover a visit to Dr. Zalac at Orion Animal Hospital (although Cristin of PAAW was willing to once again use her own money to pay the vet). The visit was approved and Peanut was seen but I had not heard the results so I sent an e mail to Catherine asking about Peanut. Here is her response:
“Thank you for asking about Peanut. She gained her angel wings at home with Crisitin ( PAAW) just a few days after her visit at Orion Animal Hospital. Dr. Zalac was perplexed by her bloodwork and made her comfortable. We actually dropped Peanut off at MSU Vet Center for a necropsy. We are awaiting the final results of that. It is still a mystery, since we have had luck treating FIP before. She knew love in her short life, and her death will not be in vain, we can learn and save more kitties in the future.
So very appreciative of your support and kindness! – Catherine”
