A twelve-year-old tabby and white female
Time Spent at the Shelter: 47 days.
Personality: A wise senior cat who enjoys cuddles.
Background: In mid-August, Agatha was surrendered by a member of the public who was no longer able to care for her due to a change in personal circumstances. Upon arrival, it was discovered that Agatha required extensive dental work. Being an older patient, a urine sample was also taken, identifying that Agatha had other issues that needed blood tests. Further tests revealed that poor Agatha sadly had renal failure.
Treatment: Agatha’s blood results showed some changes that were cause for concern. Agatha was rather nervous and didn’t seem to be happy in the Shelter’s care. Her bloods were marked for repeating; once she had settled in a little. Upon repeat of Agatha’s bloods, a week or so later, she was officially diagnosed with chronic renal failure. With this in mind, Agatha underwent her much-needed dental procedure being monitored closely by our veterinary team while under anesthetic. She recovered and her gums healed well from the extractions.
Shelter Life: By this time, Agatha had spent a month or so in the Shelter’s care and had begun to show huge improvement in trusting the Shelter team and her temperament was shining through. She was loving the interactions and enjoying cuddles with the staff. It was time to determine a suitable future pathway for Agatha.
Agatha’s Happily Ever After: It was decided that given her chronic condition requiring a special diet, Agatha would be an appropriate candidate for our permanent foster care program. A suitable foster carer was quickly found and Agatha will be able to live comfortably for the rest of her life.
