New Foster Kitten - Tom Tulliver
I've got a new foster kitty! My friend and fellow rescuer WS found this little dude today outside her office and brought him to my place after work. He's about 4 months old, scrawny with bald patches all over his face, head, and neck. His eyes are very watery and the rims of the lids suspiciously pink. I'm thinking this guy needs some medical attention. He's a little timid but not hissy at all and once over his shyness he is gently affectionate. He nudges my hand with the gentlest of little head-butts. I don't think he's feeling well and this is probably why he is so subdued. Will bring him to the vet tomorrow!
I think I'll call him Tom Tulliver because I'm reading "The Mill on the Floss" by George Eliot. My mother's favorite childhood book. He's got absolutely enormous ears. He's obviously not well but doesn't he look like a sweetie? Let's hope for the best shall we :)
Live in Malaysia and want to adopt? All animals featured here are rescued strays or abandoned pets.
- Set up a meeting with me and the pet of your choice. - We'll have a chat and see if you and kitty/pup are suitable for each other. - Successful adopter will then have to meet us at my vet in order to get the little tyke vaccinated. Then your new family member is yours to take home and love forever. - Cost of vaccinations and neutering to be borne by adopter. Although I do volunteer with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA Selangor) in my free time, I am primarily an independent rescuer/fosterer. My funds are limited. - I do appreciate occasional updates and photos after a successful adoption!
Vaccinations and neutering/spaying at 6 months of age are compulsory for adoption. There are already too many stray homeless animals starving and suffering in the streets.. Don't breed. When you want more pets, you can always ADOPT from a shelter.
No cage confinement please, except in incidences of illness or injury.
Interested parties can text or email me. A brief introduction of yourself and your experience with dogs/cats is greatly appreciated.
