This month’s Adoptable Pets from Jaiya’s Animal Rescue
Name: Wilbur (Dog)
DOB: Nov, 2011
Health: Deflead, dewormed, vaccinated.
Pig or dog?!
Puppy or weasel?!
Sheep mating with canine?!
Check out my ayi’s latest rescue, thrown out on the street (but with a head’s up to my ayi first!) by a village family unable or unwilling to care for a wee one with clear birth defects but in my mind still cute as a button!!
We’ve named him Wilbur! He’s about 2 months old, and aside from worms (for which he’s being treated) and the potential future need for an eye-slit operation (!), the vet pronounced him healthy today!!!
What’s he wearing in the final pic, you might ask? A coat we made him out of the boys’ old soccer sock — the only thing small enough to fit!
Name: Polo & Noodle (cats)
Polo (left) and Noodle (right)
Gender: Female & Male
DOB: November 2011
Health: Vaccinated, Dewormed and deflead.
* Rescuer’s blurb *
One of them had green gunk coming out of her eye, was sneezing and soaking wet. The other was wet on it’s back paws and tail, in marginally better shape but still didn’t look good, so I picked them both up and took them off to my local vet, whereupon we found that the worse of the two was actually bleeding from quite a big wound on her side and the one in better shape had an old wound that was possibly infected.
They both had ear mites, fleas and worms (of course). They were treated for their ear mites, and given worming and flea treatment as well as baths and antibiotics.
They are being kept at the vet in an isolation ward and the worse of the two (who we have called Polo) was on fluid therapy for one day, while getting daily treatment for an ear infection, eye infection, being fed through a tube and who knows what else.
They are getting all the medical attention that they need, while we are waiting for more clear signs of which are their ailments.
One is a boy (named Noodle). He is very friendly and purrs a lot … Noodle has grey and black stripes with a white chest. The other is a girl – ginger and white – named Polo … she is very small and clearly has been in very bad health for some time, but her recovery looks hopeful as she is no longer on a drip and is eating solid food. Neither Noodle, nor Polo, sneezes anymore.
The Vet estimates them at around 4 months old, but they are quite tiny because they have been underfed and ill.
They certainly could live happy, healthy lives as indoor cats, either as a pair or individually, but they do really seem close to each other as Polo seems to really rely on Noodle for feeling comfortable and safe.
Currently, at the hospital they seem VERY happy to be indoors, even in a cage, as they are being regularly fed, staying in a warm room, having water and a nice soft bed, and each other, which is the best thing of all!
I have no idea what to do with them when they are ready to leave the hospital. I can’t have them as I already have rescue cats and can’t take any more in. However, given the state they were in when I found them, they would definitely have died a slow and painful death if they had not been taken to the vet, I had to save them and give them a chance at a healthy, happy life. The way they have taken to being indoors at the vet and the amount of purring which goes on even while they are ill makes me really believe that they would make great pets for someone.
