This is kitten Teak! He’s the second chonkiest kitten. He’s wrapped in a towel because he just had a butt bath (fyi—microfiber cloths are GREAT for drying kitten fur quickly). He’s a good eater, but he’s got some diarrhea so benebac is being added to his formula and I’m watching his hydration. Hopefully it’s just the result of the formula switch and will clear up soon! He’s a sweetheart and I’m already in love.♥️
Over the past four years, I’ve taken in critical cases ranging from emaciated newborns to 3 week olds with severe parasitic infections. With each and every case I’m constantly learning, researching, and figuring out how I can do better. Maybe it’s learning a new skill or evolving my protocols. This time it’s acquiring a life-saving piece of equipment: an incubator. By creating an environment with controlled temperature and humidity, it acts as a kitten ICU to the most vulnerable orphans. Scroll through the photos to find kittens like Cameo, Moonbeam, and Fawn who would have benefitted immensely from being able to stay in an incubator while recovering from critical condition.
After losing Walnut it became clear to me that if I’m going to continue taking in tough cases like his this kitten season, an incubator would be invaluable to me and my foster babies.
I’ve started a GoFundMe page if you’d like to donate to help me acquire this expensive but crucial piece of equipment along with nebulization and oxygen concentration accessories. To find the GoFundMe page, PayPal, and Venmo—please visit the link in my bio. Thank you all. I couldn’t do this without your support.♥️ #fundraiser
